MARKHAM, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Oct. 10, 2012) – Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, today announced highlights of its audited consolidated financial statements under IFRS for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2012, ended June 30, 2012 and the adoption of a shareholder rights plan.
Sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 were $3.71 million, 14% higher than the same period last year and an all-time record for quarterly revenue at Sangoma. Annual revenue for fiscal 2012 was $13.76 million, up 16% versus last year, and also an all-time record for Sangoma. For the second year in a row, sales have grown consistently from the first quarter through the fourth quarter.
“I am very pleased to have closed fiscal 2012 with such a strong revenue quarter and year, particularly against the backdrop of sales downturns amongst many of our competitors,” said Bill Wignall President and CEO of Sangoma. “We see our strategy continuing to bear fruit. The operational re-build is complete, we dramatically expanded our product portfolio with 10 new products using more focused R&D, we built a global sales and marketing presence with increased investment, we have won early successes in some key new carrier customers, and we completed the acquisition of the assets of VegaStream. It is most gratifying to see these strategic decisions reflected in growing sales during such turbulent times. I could not be more proud of our talented team of people and partners who work so hard every day, and I thank our customers for putting their faith in Sangoma.”

Gross profit was $2.36 million for the quarter and $9.47 million for the year, or 64% and 69% of revenue respectively. Gross margin as a percent of revenue is lower than prior periods due to Sangoma’s expanded product portfolio, such that sales of this new product mix involve lower margins on some products than its traditional board business.
Operating expense for the fourth quarter was $2.40 million and for the year was $8.41 million before one-time business acquisition costs. Annual operating expenses were 11% higher than the $7.61 million incurred in the prior fiscal year, reflecting the increased investment in product development and sales and marketing.
Operating Income was $1.05 million for the fiscal year, or about 8% of annual revenue with a slight loss of $0.04m being incurred in the fourth quarter.
“Delivering increased revenue, profitably, while maintaining a healthy balance sheet was a key objective for Sangoma in fiscal 2012 and 16% growth is really great in this environment,” continued Wignall. “While our existing distribution partners continue to perform well, we are also seeking bigger orders with larger customers as we penetrate new geographic markets and customer segments.”
Net Income for the year ending June 30, 2012 was $0.41 million ($0.014 per share fully diluted), compared to a net loss of $3.76 million (-$0.124 per share fully diluted) for the year ended June 30, 2011 which was impacted by two one-time non-cash charges.
Sangoma finished the year with a solid cash balance of $5.02 million and had working capital of $11.86 million on June 30, 2012 as compared to $12.36 million on June 30, 2011.
