Sentry Technology Reports Year End Results

RONKONKOMA, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- Sentry Technology Corporation (OTC Pink: SKVY) (PINKSHEETS: SKVY) today reported financial results for the Company's year ended December 31, 2013.

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $6,575,000 compared to $7,171,000 reported in 2012. Net loss on operations was $286,000 in 2013, compared to a net loss of $530,000 in 2012. The net loss for the year was $689,000, or $(0.00) per share in 2013, compared to a net income of $1,510,000, or $0.01 per share in 2012. The net income in 2012 was a result of a $2,628,000 extraordinary gain resulting from the purchase of a debenture by the company.

Revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $1,647,000 compared to $1,988,000 reported in 2012. EBITDA for the fourth quarter was a positive $13,000 in 2013 compared to a negative EBITDA of ($199,000) in the fourth quarter of 2012.

"Despite a reduction in revenue, we had improved results on operations in 2013 compared with 2012 which resulted in an EBITDA gain in the fourth quarter," said Peter Murdoch, President and CEO of Sentry Technology. "This is largely due to continued cost cutting as we focus efforts to promote VideoRailway™, our new HD/IP traveling camera system. VideoRailway™ reference sites have now been established with several large retailers. In particular systems have been installed in multiple store locations of one of the world's largest companies. We expect to take advantage of references from premier accounts as we continue to introduce the product in 2014."

Sentry Technology Corporation designs, manufactures, sells and installs Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) solutions, Electro-Magnetic (EM) and RFID based Library security and self-service systems. Our CCTV product line features VideoRailway™ and SmartTrack™, a proprietary, traveling camera technology. Our OperationalVideo™, OVportal™ software application assists retailers with on-line management of safety and security, merchandising audits and employee procedure compliance. Products are used by libraries to secure inventory and improve operating efficiency, by retailers to deter theft and enhance productivity, and by industrial/institutional customers to protect assets and people.

Adjusted EBITDA

Sentry Technology Corporation uses Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income (loss) interest, income taxes, non-cash amortization costs related to financing, depreciation and amortization expense, net (loss) income attributable to the noncontrolling interest and gain from exinguishment of debt. Adjusted EBITDA is provided to investors to supplement the results of operations reported in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing Sentry Technology Corporation's financial results with other companies that also use Adjusted EBITDA in their communications to investors. By excluding non-cash charges such as non-cash amortization costs related to financing, depreciation and amortization, as well as non-operating charges for interest and income taxes, net (loss) income attributable to the noncontrolling interest and gain from exinguishment of debt, investors can evaluate the Company's operations and can compare its results on a more consistent basis to the results of other companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary measures management uses to monitor and evaluate financial and operating results.

Sentry Technology Corporation considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a useful measure of the Company's operating trends. However, there are significant limitations to the use of Adjusted EBITDA since it excludes interest income and expense, non-cash amortization costs related to financing, net (loss) income attributable to the noncontrolling interest and gain from exinguishment of debt, all of which impact the Company's profitability, as well as depreciation and amortization related to the use of long term assets which benefit multiple periods. Sentry Technology Corporation believes that these limitations are compensated by providing Adjusted EBITDA only with GAAP net income (loss) and clearly identifying the difference between the two measures. Consequently, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA as defined by the Company may not be comparable with similarly named measures provided by other entities. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income or loss is included in the schedule below.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend.

For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way.

In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products.
