Highlights for the year ended December 31, 2013
-- The USA directional division made outstanding strides this year, specifically this past quarter. During the third quarter of 2013, the division increased its sales and operational base with the addition of new personnel. Through the last quarter of 2013 the division successfully added several new clients and has seen a remarkable improvement in its revenue and service quality. The division will be a highlight for 2014 as it continues to expand its geographical markets and customer base. -- Enseco has spent the last few years making advancements to its in-house MWD system and improving its reliability and service quality. This continues to benefit the Company and its clients by means of decreased downtime and higher utilizations. As part of this effort, the Company has taken opportunities to sell non-core MWD technology and replace these non-core MWD platforms with its own. Enseco's own MWD has been operating at levels of reliability not seen before and it is expected to only improve as the Company continues to make changes and advancements to the equipment.
Enseco expects growth and expansion from both of its USA divisions. Both the directional and testing divisions are expanding their geographic markets and their customer base. The Company expects most of its revenue growth to come from the division's operating in the USA.
The Company will search for efficiencies and cost reductions to increase its gross margins and EBITDAS. It is expected that the pursuit of these opportunities, accompanied by initiatives to both improve margin efficiency, and reduce debt levels, will improve the Company's financial performance going forward.
Enseco has filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities its annual audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 and accompanying management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A"). These filings are available under Enseco's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

EBITDAS means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation and is equal to earnings before income taxes from continuing operations plus interest on debt, other charges and interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, unrealized foreign exchange loss, and loss on sale of equipment. Adjusted gross margin from continuing operations equals gross margin, plus interest on debt, other charges and interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment loss/recovery, and loss on sale of equipment. Cash flow means cash flows provided by continuing operations before changes in non-cash working capital items.
EBITDAS, adjusted gross margin from continuing operations, and cash flows from continuing operations before changes in non-cash working capital items are not recognized measures under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). Management believes that in addition to net losses, EBITDAS and cash flows, are useful supplemental measures as they provide an indication of the results generated by the Company's primary business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed, amortized or how the results are taxed in various jurisdictions as well as the cash generated by the Company's primary business activities. Readers should be cautioned, however, that EBITDAS and cash flows from continuing operations before changes in non-cash working capital items should not be construed as an alternative to net losses determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of Enseco's performance. Enseco's method of calculating operating losses, EBITDAS and cash flows from continuing operations before changes in non-cash working capital items may differ from other organizations and, accordingly, such measures may not be comparable to measures used by other organizations. For reconciliation to the appropriate IFRS measure, see our MD&A.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
