STUART, FL--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LBMH) today announced the financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2013. Financial highlights are summarized below:

Dollars in thousands                       Q2 FY2014   Q2 FY2013     Change 
                                         ----------- ----------- -----------
                                                                            
Net sales                                $    17,619 $    16,734        5.3%
                                                                            
Operating income                               2,597       2,358       10.1%
                                                                            
Net income                               $     1,613 $     1,420       13.6%

Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2014, increased by $885,000, or 5.3%, to $17,619,000, compared with net sales of $16,734,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Net sales for the six months ended March 31, 2014, increased by $1,971,000, or 5.7%, to $36,256,000, compared with net sales of $34,285,000 for the six months ended March 31, 2013. The increase in net sales was primarily due to our continued emphasis on our direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and our emphasis on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for our recurring customer base.

Income from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2014, increased by $239,000, or 10.1%, to $2,597,000, compared with the three months ended March 31, 2013. For the six months ended March 31, 2014, income from operations increased by $1,481,000, or 32.1%, to $6,097,000, compared with the six months ended March 31, 2013. The increase in operating income is primarily attributed to increased gross profits driven by our increased sales volumes as well as a reduction as a percentage of sales in payroll and bad debts expense, partially offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses.

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $1,613,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1,420,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income for the six months ended March 31, 2014 was $3,733,000 or $0.07 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2,772,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the six months ended March 31, 2013.

The Company had cash of $9,573,000 at March 31, 2014, compared with cash of $12,453,000 at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $2,880,000. The decrease in cash for the six months ended March 31, 2014, is primarily attributable to $3,411,000 used for taxes, $944,000 of which will be applied to future periods, dividend payments of $3,141,000 and $2,090,000 in increased advertising expenditures.

Mark Libratore, the Company's President and CEO, commented, "In the second quarter we encountered our normal seasonal sales weakness associated with the renewal of calendar year deductibles, continued delayed payments due to Medicare's industry wide auditing of medical supply claims and a significant increase in income tax payments. I am pleased to report that Liberator achieved positive revenue and operating margin growth in our fiscal second quarter.

"As we have done from time-to-time we have taken the opportunity to pulse our advertising expenditures. It is our intent to utilize excess cash to grow our customer base. Our experience has demonstrated the benefit over time of our advertising expenditures including, but not limited to the invaluable insights we gain. We will continue to manage our advertising expenditures to balance growth and cash flow to maximize the return realized by our shareholders."

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing ...
While DevOps promises a better and tighter integration among an organization’s development and operation teams and transforms an application life cycle into a continual deployment, Chef and Azure together provides a speedy, cost-effective and highly scalable vehicle for realizing the business values of this transformation.

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
