Synex International Inc - Second quarter of fiscal 2014

TSX : SXI

VANCOUVER, Feb. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - For the six months ended December 31, 2013, revenue was $1,133,587 as compared to $1,067,562 for the six months ended December 31, 2012.  The increase in revenue is due to increases in sales from the Mears Plant, Barr Plant, Kyuquot Utility and the Engineering Division partly offset by decreases in the electricity sales from the Cypress Plant.

The net loss for the six months ended December 31, 2013 decreased to $389,084 as compared to $491,960 for the six months ended December 31, 2012.  The decrease in net loss is primarily due to higher revenues from the engineering and energy divisions.  A net loss in the six month period ending in December is expected as the generation from hydro plants represents less than 35% of annual forecast generation.  In addition, the weather conditions were dry during both the six months ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.  The loss per share for the six months ended December 31, 2013 was $0.01 as compared to a net loss per share of $0.02 for the six months ended December 31, 2012.

Capital expenditures in respect of the development of run-of-river hydro projects in British Columbia for the six months ended December 31, 2013 totaled $243,424.  The Power Division was most active on the proposed 5MW McKelvie Creek Project, 4MW Newcastle Creek Project and 10MW Victoria Lake Project.  The Victoria Lake Project has an electricity purchase agreement dated August 2006 whereas the two other projects are expected to qualify for electricity purchase agreements under the current BC Hydro Standing Offer Program.

At December 31, 2013, the Company had a cash balance of $919,850 as compared to $1,145,655 at June 30, 2013. The total loan principal outstanding to the Canadian Western Bank was $18,465,316 at December 31, 2013 as compared to $18,461,818 at June 30, 2013.  During July 2013, the Company increased the loan principal of the Kyuquot Loan by about $321,000 to $700,000 and converted the loan from a floating rate to a  3-year fixed rate.   In addition, in August 2013, the Company received gross proceeds of $153,500 from issuance of 340,000 common shares from the exercise of options by directors and officers.

The Company is a successful hydroelectric developer and consultant in British Columbia.  The Company wholly owns or has beneficial interests in a total of 12 MW of operating facilities.  In addition, the Company has applications for water licences and land tenure on over 55 potential hydroelectric sites which are in various stages of development or intended for disposition.  Mostly, the water licence applications are for projects with individual capacities of less than 10 MW.  BC Hydro under the current Standing Offer Program accepts applications for electricity purchase agreements for up to forty years with a maximum size of 15 MW.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
