WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vape Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: VAPE) (the "Company"), a holding company focused on providing healthy, efficient, and sustainable vaporization products, is pleased to announce the filing of its 10Q quarterly report and record quarterly results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2014. The full 10Q filing is available in its entirety on the SEC's website at http://edgar.sec.gov.
For its fiscal third quarter of 2014 Vape generated record revenues of $361,781 which represents the Company's first revenue-generating fiscal quarter, despite its full product line not shipping to customers until mid-May. Since commencement of revenue-generating operations less than 100 days ago, the Company has recorded revenues of $392,540.
"We are extremely pleased with the Q3 2014 financial results that represent our first big push to market since our products began shipping full scale in mid-May," stated Vape CEO and Chairman Kyle Tracey. "Since the acquisition and launch of the HIVE Ceramics proprietary product line on March 27th, we have worked diligently to establish an infrastructure of authorized dealers and distribution partners around the world. We've been fortunate to leverage our industry experience and contacts and the resulting revenues represent a strong first step in capitalizing on those relationships."
Since the close of Q3 2014 on June 30th, the Company has announced the full-scale launch of its e-commerce site at www.HiveCeramics.com, an authorized dealer network of over 1,100 shops nationwide and its worldwide distribution reach with relationships established with noted industry distributors GotVape.com (USA), West Coast Gifts (Canada), Puff Pipes (Canada), DNA Genetics (Europe) and DNA Genetics' new South American distributor Pure DNA.
"We believe our work during Q3 2014 establishing our multi-faceted distribution strategy for HIVE will provide long-term value to our shareholders as we continue to expand the reach of our distribution network and product line to send high quality products to consumers around the globe," said Mr. Tracey.
As the Company's Q3, 2014 results indicate, Vape has incurred a net loss of $31,163,951 for the nine months ended June 30th due primarily to a substantial loss on the settlement of warrants in the amount of $29,528,844. The net loss due to settlement of the warrants was triggered by full ratchet anti-dilution adjustments in the warrants from a May 2011 financial raise by former management of the Company when it was known as PeopleString Corporation. Much of the settlement liability was recorded during Q2 2014. As of the filing of the Q3 2014 quarterly report there are an additional 1,250,131 warrants that remain outstanding out of a possible 8,400,000.
"The Company has worked promptly to resolve its warrant liability and has decreased its outstanding warrants to a fraction of what they were," stated Mr. Tracey. "We are confident we have taken the proper steps to put these issues behind us allowing Vape to focus on the growth and expansion of HIVE and its future operations."

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

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.

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.
