C-COM Reports Profit in Second Quarter

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE: CMI), a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today financial results for the second quarter ended May 31, 2014.

Revenues for Q2 were $3,754,738 and the company generated a net after tax profit of $782,188 or 2 cents per share. This compared to Q2 2013 when total revenues were $4,795,627 with a net after tax profit of $966,997 or 3 cents per share, representing a decrease of 21.9% in revenues and 19.1% in net after tax profit.

C-COM had an income tax provision of $500,820 in fiscal 2014, versus $428,463 in fiscal 2013.

The working capital of the Company at May 31, 2014 has increased 12.8% to $19,149,209 compared to $16,975,564 at May 31, 2013.

"This is our 40th profitable quarter out of the last 41 quarters," said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite System Inc.. "While this year's second quarter results are lower than last year's, historically this quarter of our fiscal year is slow. The second quarter of fiscal 2013 was the Company's second largest in the company's history.

Revenues increased approximately $1.4 million over Q1 2014. The continued profitability during the second quarter of 2014 is largely attributable to repeat orders from our large base of loyal customers worldwide", continued Klein. We are signing up new resellers and opening new vertical markets with our next generation products which are contributing to this revenue growth.

The Company also announced the payment of an eligible dividend in the amount of $0.0125 per common share payable on August 21, 2014 to all shareholders of record as of August 7, 2014. Based on its closing price of $1.44 per share on July 21, 2014, this quarterly dividend would provide a yield of 3.47% on an annualized basis. This dividend is part of the Company's ongoing practice of returning value to its shareholders through a quarterly dividend.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
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...
