Posera-HDX Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2012

TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Posera-HDX Ltd. ("Posera-HDX") (the Company) announced today its financial results for the three and nine-months ended September 30th, 2012. Posera-HDX is listed on the TSX under the symbol "HDX".

Paul Howell, Chief Executive Officer, reports:

While fourth quarter business activity has improved drastically, the third quarter of 2012 was a difficult period. There were fewer new restaurants opened because of the worldwide economy. There were also fewer restaurant renovations and technology refreshes. The lack of available third party lease funding for clients resulted in fewer restaurants being approved for technology financing, the reseller community experienced lower than expected software sales and a major vendor to Posera-HDX had significant inventory availability issues. These factors have resulted in slower than expected sales activity in the third quarter of 2012. Sales and service revenues for the three-months ended September 30, 2012 were $4,032,574 representing a decrease of 11.2% from $4,541,336 from the three-months ended September 30, 2011.

Excluding the Company's investment in the payment processing division, one-time expenses and non-cash costs associated with the amortization of acquired intangible assets, property plant and equipment and stock-based compensation, the Company would have recognized normalized EBITDA profit of $140,401 for the three-months ended September 30, 2012.

The Company experienced a normalized EBITDA loss of ($32,206) for the three-months ended September 30, 2012 of which, $172,607 is due to the ongoing expenses related to the Company's investment strategy for our payment processing division. Additionally, the Company incurred $107,964 of one-time expenditures during the three-months ended September 30, 2012.

Company-wide non-cash amortization of intangible assets and property plant and equipment was $365,470 and stock-based compensation was $87,239, for the three-months ended September 30, 2012. HDX Payment Processing Ltd. ("HDXPP") (the acquired Cash N Go Ltd. payments processing division) experienced a loss of $194,551 and Posera-HDX Scheduler Inc. (the acquired assets of 2020 Hyperscheduler / Hypervison) experienced a loss of $38,959. The Company expects to continue to make significant investments in these divisions into the foreseeable future and will strive to increase revenue for these divisions and products as quickly as possible. 

Posera-HDX Ltd. continues to invest and focus on developing significant new revenue opportunities that are complimentary to the Company's current operational foundation and synergistic with the Company's intellectual property assets. New software as a service ("SaaS") products and business modules with recurring revenue are under construction. This will allow the Company to deliver an enhanced range of services to the Company's current client base and will bolster the Company's ability to attract new customers.

Following the acquisition of HDXPP in December 2011, and following the announcement on June 14th, 2012 that the Company has been approved for membership to the Interac Association as an Indirect Connector to perform the functions of an Acquirer in the Shared Cash Dispensing ("SCD") Service, Posera-HDX continues to make significant investments to enhance systems, facilities, and operating procedures in order to secure the necessary approvals to operate a payment processing switch and an ATM transaction processing switch. Through HDXPP, Posera - HDX owns and operates a Postillion payment switch developed by S1 Corporation. In addition, to the provision of SCD services, Posera-HDX plans to expand the payment switch to facilitate the processing of Point-of-Sale transactions for its merchant client base. HDXPP has retained team members and contractors with the appropriate industry expertise to allow the Company to further develop the payment processing division with an eye toward monetizing the Company's investment in this division as quickly as possible. To take advantage of the convergence in retail technologies currently underway, the Company continues to pursue merger and acquisition opportunities with complimentary organizations although none are specifically named at this time.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
