MARKHAM, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Enghouse Systems Limited (TSX: ESL) today announced its unaudited second quarter financial results for the period ended April 30, 2014.

Second quarter revenue was $55.0 million, an increase of 23% over revenue of $44.5 million in the second quarter last year. The increase in revenue reflects a combination of contributions from acquisitions, the positive impact of foreign exchange and organic growth. Revenue includes hosted and maintenance services contributions of $28.3 million in the quarter, an increase of 21% over last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $13.9 million or $0.52 per diluted share compared to $10.7 million or $0.40 per diluted share in last year's second quarter. Results from operating activities for the quarter were $12.5 million compared to $9.7 million in the prior year's second quarter, an increase of 29% over the prior year. Net income for the quarter was $6.6 million or $0.24 per diluted share compared to the prior year's second quarter net income of $4.9 million or $0.19 per share.

On a year to date basis, revenue was $102.4 million for the year compared to $86.5 million last year, an increase of 18%, while net income was $12.7 million or $0.47 per diluted share compared to $8.3 million or $0.32 per diluted share, an increase of 53%. Adjusted EBITDA was $26.0 million or $0.97 per diluted share compared to $20.3 million or $0.77 per diluted share last year.

Operating expenses increased to $26.3 million from $22.3 million in the prior year's second quarter and include incremental operating costs related to acquisitions, foreign exchange and special charges of $0.8 million related to restructuring of acquired operations. Non-cash amortization charges in the quarter were $4.2 million compared to $3.9 million in the prior year's second quarter and include amortization charges for acquired software and customer relationships including acquisitions completed in the current year.

Enghouse closed the quarter with $101.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $90.3 million at October 31, 2013. This is after net cash paid of $8.2 million for the acquisition of IT Sonix AG, completed March 3, 2014, $1.8 million for Information Access Technology Inc., acquired November 4, 2013, final payments of $3.4 million made on previous acquisitions and dividends of $4.2 million paid year to date.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP measures to assess its operating performance. Securities regulations require that companies caution readers that earnings and other measures adjusted to a basis other than GAAP do not have standardized meanings and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as income before income taxes adjusted for depreciation of property, plant and equipment, amortization of acquired software and customer relationships, finance income, finance expenses, other income, and special charges for acquisition related restructuring costs. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance as it excludes amortization of software and intangibles (which is an accounting allocation of the cost of software and intangible assets arising on acquisition), any impact of finance and tax related activities, asset depreciation, other income and restructuring costs primarily related to acquisitions.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
What if you could build a web application that could support true web-scale traffic without having to ever provision or manage a single server? Sounds magical, and it is! In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Munns, Senior Developer Advocate for Serverless Applications at Amazon Web Services, will show how to build a serverless website that scales automatically using services like AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and Amazon S3. We will review several frameworks that can help you build serverle...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development ...
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" ...
