RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2016 increased by 666% to $267,968 and revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 increased by 126% to $610,402, compared to the same periods last year. The Company's revenue increase in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was due to a larger number of license agreements delivered and a trend towards longer term and larger value license agreements compared to the same periods ended September 30, 2015.
The Company started 2016 with over 20 short-term licenses averaging approximately $15,000 per license. These license agreements were with leading brands and agencies, many of which are coming back for repeat business. The last three license agreements have been larger and with longer-term, including the multi-year agreement with NBC Universal owned Fandango Rewards signed in the quarter ended June 30, 2016, and two agreements signed in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 for $108,000 over ten weeks and for $86,000 over two months. The revenues from the Fandango Rewards agreement will be recognized over the two-year period, while the other two projects were completed and will be recognized in 2016. In the fourth quarter of 2016, 3tl is focused on securing longer-term license agreements, which are expected to launch and be recognized mostly in 2017.
Gross margin as a percentage of sales increased to 55% and 70%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to gross loss of 40% and gross margin 21% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 due to the growth of high margin SaaS revenues from PLATFORM
As the size and term of 3tl's agreements increase it is expected that some agreements will include a SaaS component with gross profit margins estimated at over 80%, and a lower margin managed services component. Our sales team is focused on maximizing high-margin SaaS revenues, but some of the major brands and agencies need some additional support to implement their digital marketing plans.
General and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to $184,527 and $691,805, respectively, compared to $360,324 and $1,151,484 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.
Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2016 increased to $207,233 compared to $148,641 for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Sales and marketing expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 remained relatively stable at $539,111, compared to $541,412 incurred in the same period ended September 30, 2015.
Research and development ("R&D") expenditure for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to $90,909 and $250,358, respectively, compared to $113,269 and $492,633 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, which was related to reduction of human resources and outsourcing activities. After more than four years of investment in R&D in PLATFORM
Share-based compensation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $62,271 and $211,704, respectively, compared to $14,229 and $107,506 for the same periods ended September 30, 2015.
Net and comprehensive loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to $395,264 and $1,263,017 compared to $633,495 and $2,213,681 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. This decrease was due to overall decrease in general and administrative, sales and marketing, and research and development related to cost reduction efforts.
Subsequent to September 30, 2016, on November 24, 2016, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement of 20,003,304 units of the Company at $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of $1,000,165.20. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of a share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.075 per warrant until November 24, 2018. The company is entitled to accelerate the expire of the share purchase warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date a news release is issued announcing the accelerated expiry date in the event that the volume weighted average price of the Shares has been equal to or greater than $0.15 for any ten consecutive trading days after March 25, 2017 but on or prior to November 24, 2018.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost...
