STUART, FL--(Marketwired - August 14, 2014) - Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LBMH) today announced the financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2014, increased by $1,087,000, or 6.2%, to $18,578,000, compared with net sales of $17,491,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

The increase in net sales was primarily due to our continued emphasis on our direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and our emphasis on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for our recurring customer base.

Income from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014, decreased by $240,000, or 7.2%, to $3,116,000, compared with the three months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in operating income is primarily attributed to an increase in advertising expense, general and administrative expenses, and bad debt expense. 

For the nine months ended June 30, 2014, income from operations increased by $1,241,000, or 15.6%, to $9,213,000, compared with the nine months ended June 30, 2013. The increase in operating income is primarily attributed to increased gross profits driven by our increased sales volumes as well as a reduction as a percentage of sales in payroll and bad debts expense.

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $1,983,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2,014,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 was $5,716,000 or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4,786,000 or $0.09 per diluted share, for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 an increase of 19.4%.

The Company had cash of $10,264,000 at June 30, 2014, compared with cash of $12,453,000 at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $2,189,000. The decrease in cash for the nine months ended June 30, 2014, was primarily due to $3,945,000 of cash used in financing activities and, $310,000 of cash used in investing activities, partially offset by $2,066,000 of cash provided by operating activities.

"During our fiscal third quarter we made key investments in our organizational infrastructure to improve the efficiency and performance of our customer-facing staff. These expenditures resulted in higher general and administrative expenses in the quarter. We are investing in acquiring and serving our customers, which is central to our mission as a healthcare products provider and to achieving the maximum return on our advertising expenditures. We are pleased that we have grown sales and income over the last nine months and we will continue to make investments that support our growth and create efficiencies that improve our operating margins," commented Mark Libratore, President and CEO.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
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. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
In his Opening Keynote at 21st Cloud Expo, John Considine, General Manager of IBM Cloud Infrastructure, led attendees through the exciting evolution of the cloud. He looked at this major disruption from the perspective of technology, business models, and what this means for enterprises of all sizes. John Considine is General Manager of Cloud Infrastructure Services at IBM. In that role he is responsible for leading IBM’s public cloud infrastructure including strategy, development, and offering m...
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.
"ZeroStack is a startup in Silicon Valley. We're solving a very interesting problem around bringing public cloud convenience with private cloud control for enterprises and mid-size companies," explained Kamesh Pemmaraju, VP of Product Management at ZeroStack, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
