Gemini Corporation Reports Fiscal 2013 Results

Record Revenue and Profitability Achieved

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE: GKX) today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 and the grant of options and units to officers and directors.

Revenue for 2013 increased 29% to $112 million from $87 million in 2012. Fourth quarter revenue increased 65% to $33 million compared to $20 million in the same period last year. The activity level realized in the last half of 2013 significantly outpaced the first half of the year, generating the revenue growth previously forecast. The backlog of work in both the Field Solutions and Engineered Solutions segments softened somewhat entering 2014, but industry projections and client forecasted capital expenditures indicate a strengthening of activity as the year unfolds. Market opportunities are anticipated to improve sufficiently for the Corporation to remain on a growth path for 2014 and beyond.

Gross profit for 2013 totalled $21 million, which was a 45% increase over the $14 million earned in the prior year. In addition, gross profit as a percent of revenue increased to 18.4% from 16.3% as a result of higher staff utilization and better project execution efficiencies driven by the increased volumes. Opportunities to enhance margins through continuous improvement initiatives are continuing to be identified and implemented.

Net earnings for 2013 improved substantially to $3.4 million (6.1 cents per share) compared to the net earnings of $0.8 million (2.1 cents per share) earned in 2012. Fourth quarter earnings were $0.7 million (1.3 cents per share) compared to a net loss of $0.2 million (0.5 cents per share) in 2012.

"Gemini achieved record revenue and profitability in 2013," stated Gemini's President and CEO, Doug Lautermilch. "We have successfully embarked on a growth path that is expected to continue for a number of years based upon current client forecasts and industry projections. We are investing in expanded capacity and increasing our capability to meet client service demand. In addition, we are working diligently on enhancing our execution to optimize profitability as we continue to grow."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
