Goodfellow Reports its Results for the Third Quarter Ended August 31, 2016

DELSON, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 11/29/16 -- Goodfellow Inc. (TSE:GDL) announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended August 31, 2016. For the three months ended August 31, 2016, the Company reported a net loss of $(2.5) million or $(0.29) per share compared to net income of $3.7 million or $0.44 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the three months ended August 31, 2016 were $159.1 million compared to $151.7 million last year. For the nine months ended August 31, 2016, the Company reported a net loss of $(0.9) million or $(0.11) per share compared to $6.6 million or $0.78 per share a year ago. Consolidated sales for the nine months ended August 31, 2016 were $434.4 million compared to $403.8 million last year. Sales in Canada during the first nine months of fiscal 2016 increased 11% compared to the same period a year ago mainly due to a strong performance in Ontario and strong sales of pressure treated wood. Sales in the United States for the first nine months ended August 31, 2016 decreased 6% on a Canadian dollar basis compared to the same period last year due to lower demand of flooring products and lower industrial projects deliveries. On a US dollar basis, US denominated sales decreased 13% compared to last year. Finally, Export sales decreased 13% during the first nine months of fiscal 2016 compared to the same period a year ago mainly due to decreasing demand of hardwood products in Asia and lower sales in the United Kingdom impacted by uncertainties following the Brexit vote. On the operating side, Selling, Administrative and General Expenses for the nine months ended August 31, 2016 increased 3.6% compared to the corresponding period last year due to non-recurring expenses with added resources relating to our new ERP implementation, procedures performed by external auditors, increased variables costs due to the added volumes and finally the acquisition of Quality Hardwoods Ltd. on December 31, 2015. As a result, direct, selling, and administrative expenses increased to $69.1 million ($66.7 million last year).

The delay in producing the third quarter results was motivated by the discovery of certain discrepancies mostly related to the recording of inventory value and its impact on the cost of goods sold. The services of our auditor, KPMG LLP, was retained to perform selected procedures over the nine month period ended August 31, 2016. Management review was instrumental in establishing confidence in our results. "Material weakness identified for the recording of inventory value is being addressed." said Denis Fraser, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Sales at 159 million dollars although 4.87% higher than last year were below expectation. Margin realised in 2 of our predominant product categories were disappointing. Increase in raw material cost was not recovered".

Goodfellow Inc. is one of eastern Canada's largest independent re-manufacturers and distributors of lumber and hardwood flooring products. Goodfellow shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GDL.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
@GonzalezCarmen has been ranked the Number One Influencer and @ThingsExpo has been named the Number One Brand in the “M2M 2016: Top 100 Influencers and Brands” by Onalytica. Onalytica analyzed tweets over the last 6 months mentioning the keywords M2M OR “Machine to Machine.” They then identified the top 100 most influential brands and individuals leading the discussion on Twitter.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
"We are an all-flash array storage provider but our focus has been on VM-aware storage specifically for virtualized applications," stated Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business. Today, any ambitious innovator can easily introduce a new application or product that can reinvent business models and transform the client experience.

"We are a modern development application platform and we have a suite of products that allow you to application release automation, we do version control, and we do application life cycle management," explained Flint Brenton, CEO of CollabNet, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor – all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
