CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Eguana Technologies Inc (TSX VENTURE: EGT), ("Eguana" or the Company") a leading supplier of high performance power management for "edge of grid energy storage applications has filed its Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for the six month period ending May 31, 2014, along with Management's Discussion and Analysis thereof. The Consolidated Financial Statements and the Management Discussion and Analysis thereof are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.eguanatech.com.
1. Unit demand forecasts in Europe are up sharply beginning in July of this year. Firm orders under the Company's Supply Contract with Sonnenbatterie GmbH ("Sonnenbatterie") will increase Eguana revenues to approximately $1 million per month by mid-summer. 2. Revenues for Q2 (March 31, 2014) were $396,357, down slightly from Q1, due to variability in demand mix which is to be expected in an emerging market. Unit volumes are up for the current Quarter, and revenues for Q3 (June 30, 2014) will be more than double Q2 revenues at an estimated $1 million. 3. Eguana's high volume manufacturing line with TQS in Durach, Germany is now in production with a capacity to produce 1,000 units per month. This capacity is incremental to the 1,000 unit per month production capacity at the Calgary plant and is adequate to meet forecast demand for the balance of the year. Working capital needed to ramp production to higher production levels is minimal. 4. Eguana continues to record design wins with multiple battery companies demonstrating Bi-Direx' value as a "universal" platform to allow next generation technologies to access the higher growth "edge of grid" storage markets. The design wins are expected to convert to commercial revenues from sources in Japan and the US during the second half of this year and into 2015. 5. Under an announced letter of intent with Sonnenbatterie, Eguana will move from supplying a power electronics sub-assembly to supplying a higher value integrated power management module that will accommodate a wide range of battery options. This change will increase revenues and margins per unit to Eguana and is targeted to become effective in Q1 2015 (CY - Q4). 6. Under the same letter of intent, Sonnenbatterie Eguana will supply power management modules to Sonnenbatterie exclusively for the US residential market. Sonnenbatterie has already secured first US purchase orders for Eguana powered energy storage systems and the Company has visibility on revenues from other sources in the US later in this year and into 2015.
Michael Carten, CEO of Eguana commented: "The potential for solar + storage, especially in the distributed or 'edge of grid' market is exceptional. Driven by fundamental change in the cost structure of solar electricity, solar + storage is beginning to offer a competitive cost alternative conventional grid supplied electricity. So significant is this change that Barclay's recently (May 20, 2014) downgraded the entire electric sector of the U.S. high-grade corporate bond market based on what it sees as long-term challenges from solar + storage over the coming decade.

"Eguana's value proposition in this segment of the market is to enable system integrators and suppliers of integrated product solutions to optimize next generation battery technologies in the lower power ratings which are needed to achieve the scalability and redundancy needed by this market at a much lower cost and with much higher efficiencies than conventional inverters.
"Eguana has designed its platform for "universality" so that customers can achieve and maintain cost leadership by easily moving to the optimum battery for the application without changing their basic power management control strategies. Multiple design wins in the past six months are demonstrating that Eguana's technology is raising the power electronics bar for next generation batteries in this market."

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

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...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
