Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 were $310 and $665, respectively. Revenues decreased by 46% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, compared to the same period in 2012.
The Company is experiencing strong demand for its products across multiple business segments and as of the date of this release has record backlogs.
Gross profits for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 were $109 and $246, respectively. Gross profits decreased by 44% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, compared to the same period in 2012. Gross margins for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 were 35% and 37%, respectively. This is slightly lower than the results in previous quarters in 2013, due to some inventory write downs and the impact that a large customer with lower margins had on the total gross margins in the current quarter.
On November 4, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement with Paradigm Capital Inc. to act as lead agent and sole book-runner on behalf of a syndicate, to complete a brokered private placement of units (“Units”) for up to CDN$4,000,000 (the “Offering”). The Offering will be made on a best efforts fully marketed private placement basis. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share priced in the context of the market and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price to be determined in the context of the market for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering. The agreement was mutually terminated on January xx, 2014. On November 18, 2013 the pricing of the Private Placement was approved by the Board at $0.20 per common share plus one half warrant per common share. The exercise price of a full warrant is set at $0.25 and a term of two years from the date of issuance.
The Company announced on February 27, 2014 closing of its first tranche of its non brokered private placement Offering, issuing 2,175,000 Units at a price of CDN$0.20 per Unit. On April 30, 2014 the Company received acceptance for filing documents; the final number of shares issued amounted to 2,961,452 along with 1, 480,726 warrants attached to those shares, for gross proceeds of CDN$592.
The Company wishes to announce that Mr. James Wyant and Mr. John Lokker have stepped down from the Wi2Wi Board of Directors, and Mr. Lokker has resigned as the Company’s interim Chief Financial Officer.
“Mr. Wyant and Mr. Lokker have held pivotal roles in Wi2Wi, Mr Wyant as Chair of the Audit Committee, and Mr. Lokker who stepped in as the Company’s interim CFO. We greatly appreciate the unique perspectives and undeterred dedication both committed during their time,” said Chairman Hans P. Black. “We would like to thank both Mr. Wyant and Mr. Lokker for their invaluable contributions to the Wi2Wi Board and wish them continued success in their future endeavours.”
