Second Quarter Results

Revenues totaled $2.6 million for the second quarter of Fiscal 2015, 46% lower than the prior year's second quarter. The decrease was primarily due to the non-renewal of the Canadian Forces Radio and Television service, as well to the deferral of certain orders for data and digital cinema products to future quarters. The total gross margin for the quarter improved to 47% from 45% for the comparable prior period, primarily due to a more favorable mix of products sold as well as reduced overheads. IDC incurred a net loss of $1.3 million in the second quarter, compared to a loss of $0.4 million in Fiscal 2014.

When comparing IDC's second quarter product sales with the first quarter of Fiscal 2015, revenues increased by 14% and gross margins improved from 34% to 50% in the quarter. These results reflect more favorable margins from sales of newer products as well as reductions in overhead costs.

While total revenues in the first half of Fiscal 2015 decreased by 47% from the previous year, deferred revenues doubled to $1.0 million at July 31st, 2014 as compared to January 31, 2014. These deferred revenues will be recognized in future quarters.

At July 31, 2014, IDC's working capital was $5.0 million, including $1.8 million in cash. In addition, on September 3rd IDC received a commitment from a major financial institution for a new financing facility that will provide up to $1 million of additional liquidity.

Progress and Outlook

During the first half of Fiscal 2015, IDC made significant progress in executing our turnaround plan. Key accomplishments during this period included the following:

--  We restructured IDC's operations to significantly reduce our overheads
    and operating costs, contributing to improved gross margins and to a
    significantly lower breakeven point. 
--  We put in place a new, more streamlined organization structure that will
    contribute to reducing cost, increasing agility, and simplifying
    decision making. 
--  We introduced the TITAN 3 Contribution Encoder, which was completed
    ahead of schedule and shipped to multiple customers for trials and
    revenue during the second quarter. 
--  We announced the LASER MPS, a multi-channel ad and content insertion
    platform suitable for digital terrestrial and satellite networks, and
    plan initial shipments in the fourth quarter. 
--  During the second quarter, we completed customer acceptance testing for
    a LASER(TM) Targeted Ad Insertion Platform for a large TV broadcaster
    based in Latin America. 
--  In July 2014, IDC partnered with Sony and Vue Entertainment to
    successfully deliver world's first 4K live event broadcasts of the 2014
    FIFA World Cup(TM) matches to cinemas in London, United Kingdom. 
--  Our sales pipeline continued to develop in line with our stated guidance
    to reach operating profitability in the second half of Fiscal 2015. 

Doug Lowther, IDC's President and CEO, stated, "While IDC's net loss has decreased over the last three quarters, this has primarily been achieved as a result of cost controls. In the second half of Fiscal 2015, our focus will be on revenue growth. We believe that our new and enhanced products will enable IDC to increase product revenues from those achieved in the last few quarters, and continue to anticipate a return to profitability during the second half of Fiscal 2015."

All forward-looking information and forward-looking statements are necessarily based on a number of estimates and assumptions that are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. The material assumptions used to develop the forward looking-statements made in this release include anticipated cost savings resulting from the initiatives taken by IDC under its action plan, anticipated impact of senior personnel, consolidation of operations and restructuring of the sales force, management's perceptions of current conditions and expected future developments, expectations regarding future shipments of IDC products, management's knowledge of the current credit, interest rate and liquidity conditions affecting IDC as well as other considerations that are believed to be appropriate in the circumstances.

All statements other than statements which are reporting results as well as statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements that may involve a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors; many of which are beyond the ability of IDC to control or predict.

Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of the words "may", "will", "should", "continue", "expect", "anticipate", "estimate", "believe", "intend", "design", "plan" or "project" or the negative of these words or other variations on these words or comparable terminology.

Further, any incorrect identification of, or failure or delay in identifying, areas that require attention in IDC's business as part of the company's strategic review, or inability to successfully address areas requiring increased focus in accordance with IDC's action plan, could materially adversely affect the company's business, financial conditions, and results of operations as well as other key indicators.

In this release, IDC has presented Adjusted EBITDA, which is a "non-GAAP financial measure" and accordingly it is not an earnings measure recognized by IFRS and does not carry standard prescribed significance. Moreover, IDC's method for calculating Adjusted EBITDA may differ from that used by other companies using the same designation. Accordingly, we caution readers that Adjusted EBITDA should not be substituted for determining net income (loss) as an indicator of operating results or as a substitution for cash flows from operating and investing activities.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a meaningful and useful financial metric to investors and analysts for measuring and predicting its operating performance by excluding interest expense and income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization as well as unusual and/or non-recurring charges as noted in the above table.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud.
