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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
