VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Intrinsyc Software International, Inc. (TSX: ICS) ("Intrinsyc" or the "Company"), a leading provider of solutions for the development of embedded and wireless devices, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2014. Intrinsyc achieved strong annual and sequential revenue growth. Revenue was approximately $2.3 million in the first quarter, up 88% from approximately $1.2 million in the first quarter of 2013 and up 40% from approximately $1.6 million in the previous quarter. Higher revenue resulted in achievement of positive EBITDA(1) of approximately $102,000. Financial information is reported in United States dollars and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").
"The Company is expanding its base of customers and prospects for the Open-Q 8074 System on Module ("SOM"), with a corresponding increase in revenue and order backlog," stated Tracy Rees, Intrinsyc's CEO. "As our customers increase sales of their products, Intrinsyc will benefit from repeat sales of our computing modules and/or design royalties. This shared success business model allows Intrinsyc to better align with our customer's business and product initiatives, while enjoying the potential for greater revenue."
Notable developments and achievements during the quarter include the following:
-- Received an order exceeding $300,000 in value for the delivery of a custom version of the low-power, high performance, Open-Q 8060A SOM. The computing modules are expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2014. -- Signed a design and development agreement with an original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") for a wearable display device based on Intrinsyc's Open-Q 8074 SOM. -- Received an order exceeding $300,000 in value for the delivery of Open-Q 8074 SOM from a previously announced customer. -- Received an order from a leading asset tracking company for the DTW 200 M2M module built by AnyDATA Corporation that is expected to exceed $850,000 in revenue; with delivery in the second half of this year. -- Signed a master supply agreement with an OEM for a custom version of Intrinsyc's Open-Q 8074 SOM. The agreement follows a development agreement previously announced by the Company on December 12, 2013 which included a minimum commitment of 10,000 units by the OEM. -- Announced general availability of the Mobile Development Platform Tablet ('MDP/T"), based on a Qualcomm® Snapdragon 805 processor from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.
Three Month Comparative Results
The Company reported revenue of approximately $2.3 million, up 88% year-over-year, from approximately $1.2 million, and up 40% quarter-over-quarter, from approximately $1.6 million.
Gross margin(2) was 41%, up from 25% in the same period in the prior year and up from 36% in the prior period. Improvements in margin were a result of higher utilization and efficiency of the Company's engineering resources, and a one-time royalty payment by a customer for the Company's RapidRIL technology.
Total expenses (excluding other operating expenses)(3) were approximately $832,000, compared to approximately $1.1 million in the same period in the prior year and approximately $552,000 for the prior quarter. The decrease in expenses year-over-year is a result of a reduction in non-core operating expenses, while the increase quarter-over-quarter was the result of an one-time reversal of accrued bonus expenses of approximately $75,000 that occurred in the previous quarter, as well as increased sales, marketing and development expenses in the quarter related to development and marketing of the Company's new product initiatives.
EBITDA was approximately $102,000, a substantial improvement from approximately ($792,000) in the same period in the prior year and up from approximately $30,000 in the prior quarter.
Due to the declining value of the Canadian dollar, the Company incurred a foreign exchange loss of approximately $236,000, contributing to a net loss of approximately $160,000. The company had a net loss of approximately $725,000 in the same period in the prior year, but net income of approximately $103,000 in the prior quarter.
Financial Position as at March 31, 2014
Working capital(4) as of March 31, 2014 was approximately $8.6 million (which included cash and cash equivalents of approximately $4.6 million and short term investments of approximately $3.5 million). This is compared to net working capital of approximately $8.8 million as of December 31, 2013 (which included cash and cash equivalents of approximately $4.6 million and short-term investments of approximately $4.5 million).

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.
