Co-CEOs George Rossolatos and Emmanuel Mounouchos announced Avante Logixx Inc.'s results for the year ended March 31, 2014. The Company achieved significant growth in revenues, gross profit and net income. While revenues grew by 32.5% for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the prior year, gross profit grew by 52.8%. Revenue growth was attributable to increased sales of rapid alarm response and intelligent perimeter protection video analytics services as well as a significant contribution from international security travel advisory services during the year. The growth in gross profit was on account of higher revenues and favourable labour cost variances.
Net income for the year was $2,779,453 as compared to $370,818 for fiscal year 2013, an increase of $2,408,635. This increase included net deferred tax recovery of $1,386,990 with the balance attributable to profit from operations for the year. Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $1,483,864 (FY 2013: $452,344) reflecting a strong and steady performance throughout the year. The Company will focus on growing all of its revenue streams in the coming year, while targeting strategic acquisitions that will enhance the company's offerings.
The Company's customer base increased by more than 10% with respect to number of Response and Monitored clients, as compared to fiscal year 2013. It is also developing new value-add security solutions to residential and corporate customers.
(1) Revenues - Recurring Monitoring and Response includes Alarm Response along with Digital, Wireless and Video Monitoring services
(2) Adjusted EBITDA = Net income (loss) + Income tax + Depreciation / amortization + Share based payments expense
Cash flow from operations for the year was $1,825,367 as compared to $326,996 for the previous fiscal year. Also, the Company's cash flow from investing activities increased primarily due to a $5 million capital raise (before share issue costs) in March 2014 through a private placement co-underwritten by Cormark Securities Inc. and Mackie Research Capital Corporation. Avante plans to make investments in infrastructure, sales and the launch of its first branding campaign in fiscal 2015 to further build organic growth rates over time.
Avante's prospects for fiscal 2015 continue to be positive. The Company continues to strengthen its balance sheet which is free of debt, while pursuing new opportunities to consolidate and further improve its market share, which would result in increased profitability, while delivering maximum value to its shareholders.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
