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."

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. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, will discuss how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He will discuss how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
Niagara Networks exhibited at the 19th International Cloud Expo, which took place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, in November 2016. Niagara Networks offers the highest port-density systems, and the most complete Next-Generation Network Visibility systems including Network Packet Brokers, Bypass Switches, and Network TAPs.
Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. 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...
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo. It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before. So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition? Back in 2015, the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted a market study that included the findings from over 1,800 CIO interviews ...
"We host and fully manage cloud data services, whether we store, the data, move the data, or run analytics on the data," stated Kamal Shannak, Senior Development Manager, Cloud Data Services, IBM, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
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.
