e.Digital Announces Third Quarter Results

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012.

The Company reported a net loss of $334,494 or $(0.00) per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to a net income of $671,417 or $0.00 per share for the prior year's third quarter. For the third quarter of fiscal 2013 revenues totaled $79,072 compared to $1,281,845 for the third quarter of the prior year. The most recent quarter included $0 of patent license revenues compared to $1,155,000 for the third quarter of the prior year. Gross profit for the third quarter was $6,351 or 8% of revenues, compared to $1,140,046 or 89% of revenues, for the prior year's third quarter. Operating expenses decreased to $400,045 from $437,629 for the prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to reduced patent related costs.

For the nine months ended December 31, 2012 the Company reported a net loss of $1,043,482 or $(0.00) per share on revenues of $336,567. For the comparable nine months of the prior year the Company reported net income of $1,566,084 or $0.01 per share on revenues of $4,506,151. The Company's results are impacted by the timing and amount of license fees and there were no significant licensing revenues so far in fiscal 2013.

"Q3 was essentially a transitional quarter for e.Digital," commented Fred Falk, President and CEO of e.Digital. "With the reexamination of two of our key patents behind us, we were able to reignite our patent monetization efforts. Through our newly retained law firm, Handal & Associates, we have been aggressively pursuing parties believed to infringe the Company's Flash-R™ patents covering the use of flash memory technologies." In October and November 2012, the Company commenced new enforcement action by filing six complaints in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. In December 2012 and January 2013 the Company filed an additional ten complaints asserting that products made and sold by the defendant companies infringe the Company's U.S. patents, and dismissed one defendant without prejudice. "We will continue to work hard to protect and enforce the Company's intellectual property and we expect to see positive results through our efforts," continued Falk.

In addition to the Flash-R progress, Q3 was a milestone quarter for new technology development. The Company was granted six patents for context and interpersonal awareness systems technologies, thereby establishing rights and officially launching the Company's Nunchi® patent portfolio. Over the last several months, the Company filed three new Nunchi related patent applications. The Company is also currently developing technologies in the areas of cloud technology, information security and user authentication. "As we return to monetizing our Flash-R patent portfolio we are also now better poised to pursue Nunchi licensing opportunities and to bring on-line our next family of IP," concluded Falk.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
