Announces Conference Call to be held on Thursday, August 14th at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time
SCOTTSDALE, AZ and CALGARY, AB, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - RDX Technologies Corporation ("RDX" or the "Company") (TSXV: RDX, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE:RL7), a water treatment and energy technology company, today announced financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.
Fiscal 2014 highlights:
- Revenues more than doubled from $16.4MM to $33.7MM
- Adjusted EBITDA improved from a loss of $4.34MM to positive $553,449
Recent operating highlights:
- Sold excess Santa Fe Springs real estate holdings for $12.5MM
- Increased balance sheet cash to $6MM from Santa Fe Springs and franchise sales
- Converted to methyl ester fuel refining and direct ion exchange refining
- Began direct service program for waste water producers that includes transportation
- Started work to expand waste water operations in Virginia, New York, Ohio, and Arizona
- Completed first pipeline right of way in Odessa, Texas for the delivery of water to oil and gas operators
- Completing initial survey work and planning for new pipeline and treatment facilities in Midwest Wyoming
Dennis M. Danzik, Chief Executive Officer of RDX, stated, "We are extremely pleased with both our financial and operational performance in fiscal 2014. As expected, we again achieved significant growth by more than doubling revenues and reporting the Company's first positive adjusted EBITDA. In addition, we are extremely well positioned to continue this strong growth for the foreseeable future. As a company, we utilized our fourth quarter as a cleanup period to correct the many challenges at the Carthage facility that were created prior to our acquisition of the facility. RDX's refined fuel now exceeds our customers and regulators expectations. In fact, Omega Proteins has chosen to highlight our energy products in several press releases. We expect to see more of our customers recognizing RDX in a very positive light over the next several months."
"In the coming months, we expect to move the Company forward through the aggressive sale of additional franchise operations in Arizona, Texas, Ohio, Virginia, and Georgia. We also have active negotiations taking place in Canada and Europe."
Mr. Danzik continued, "RDX has demonstrated its ability to acquire and integrate underperforming assets, install our proprietary technologies, direct sound engineering practices, enhance operations, implement strict financial controls, and thereby improve both revenue and profitability. In the face of this type of growth, controlling finances and budgets is difficult, but the management and staff at RDX are performing well. RDX has developed a highly scalable business model that will enable us to maintain strong growth and enhance profitability in the months and years ahead."
The Company will host a business update conference call on Thursday, August 14th at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Interested parties can access the conference call by dialing (877)-407-0778 for U.S. callers or +1 (201)-689-8565 for international callers, or listen via a live Internet webcast on the Company's website at www.rdxh2o.com.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION
(IN CANADIAN DOLLARS)
Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, and Amortization
The Company's financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The following table calculates earnings before interest, taxes, and amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA, which are not measures determined in accordance with IFRS or accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("US GAAP"), for the year ended March 31, 2014 and 2013:
|Year Ended March 31,|
|Net loss - continuing operations||$||(14,127,000)||$||(12,599,000)|
|Interest and other finance costs||1,444,000||100,000|
|Amortization (in cost of revenue)||4,314,000||1,323,000|
|Amortization (in operating costs)||3,430,000||3,254,000|
|Share-based payment expense||245,000||1,268,000|
|Loss on disposal and impairment of equipment||2,086,000||1,903,000|
|Foreign exchange loss on CWT notes payable||1,694,000||-|
|Change in fair value of PTEC earn-out and note payable||98,000||(254,000)|
|Gain on forgiveness of indebtedness||(643,000)||-|
|Other expense (income)||157,000||(92,000)|
|Bad debt expense||1,626,000||750,000|
|Adjusted EBITDA, net of bad debt expense||$||553,000||$||(4,343,000)|
We believe that presenting EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors because they provide important information concerning our operating performance exclusive of certain non-cash and other costs. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA demonstrate our ability to execute our financial strategy, which includes reinvesting in waste water related capital assets to ensure a high level of product quality, investing in capital assets to facilitate growth in our energy business, repurchasing our common stock, and maintaining and improving our market position through business optimization. These measures have limitations. Although amortization and share-based payment expenses are considered operating costs in accordance with IFRS and US GAAP, they represent the allocation of non-cash costs generally associated with long-lived assets acquired or constructed in prior years and non-cash compensation primarily for our employees. Our definition of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
