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™ 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™ 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.

Risks and uncertainties that might cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to: competitive developments; risks associated with IDC's growth; expectations regarding new product initiatives and timing, including the STAR Pro Audio™ Solution, LASER™ Targeted Ad Insertion Platform, and TITAN 3 Video Encoder; a lengthy and variable sales cycle for IDC's products and services; any difficulties or disputes with IDC's subcontractors, contract manufacturers and suppliers; IDC's dependence on the development and growth of the satellite services market; a lengthy and variable sales cycle for IDC's products and services; IDC's reliance on a small number of customers for a large percentage of its revenue; expectations with respect to the sufficiency of its financial resources and liquidity; regulatory risks and intellectual property infringement. 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.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
