CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- CEMATRIX Corporation (TSX VENTURE: CVX) (the "Corporation" or the "Company" or "CEMATRIX") announces the release of its consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013.
CEMATRIX had a strong start to 2013 with record revenues in the first quarter, the majority of which were from one infrastructure project in Windsor, Ontario, which started in December of 2012 and continued throughout 2013. Even though Canadian infrastructure sales continued to increase beyond 2012 levels, sales in the oil and gas sector and in infrastructure in the United States ("U.S.) were lower than that achieved in 2012.
The sales decline in the oil and gas sector was the result of the timing of projects in this area while the decline in U.S. infrastructure sales was due to the lack of available projects in that country. Management expects that both of these sectors will rebound in 2014.
As a result of the above changes in sales patterns, total revenues for 2013 declined by 6% to $8.1 million. Margins also declined as a percentage of total sales due to the greater influence of infrastructure sales, together with lower introductory margins on certain infrastructure projects. This decline in sales margins resulted in an operating loss before income taxes of $247,009 as compared to operating income before income taxes of $156,294 in 2012.
The net loss after income taxes was $220,428 in 2013, as compared to income after tax of $856,294 in 2012. In 2012 the Company recorded a deferred tax asset of $700,000 in recognition of the future benefit of applying the Company's loss carry forwards to reduce future taxable income.
Selected financial information for the year ended December 31, 2013 is as follows:

Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
