MARKHAM, ONTARIO, February 24, 2016 – 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 unaudited consolidated interim financial statements for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, ended December 31, 2015.
Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $5.08 million, 49% higher than the $3.42 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 and 8% above the prior quarter.
“I am very pleased with our results this quarter, on both the revenue and EBITDA lines”, said Bill Wignall, President and CEO of Sangoma. “We have now had four complete quarters since the acquisitions in January of 2015, and it is most encouraging to see the integrated company progressing well. We are seeing larger portions of our sales come from new products, as well as from our expanding recurring revenue and services business. This is exactly what we’ve planned, as it provides some cushion against softer demand for our older products and support for maintaining our very strong gross margins. All in all, a really solid second quarter, one in which the company generated over $1 million of cash from operations.”

Gross profit was $3.67 million for the quarter, up 70% from last year and gross margin at 72% was slightly higher than expected.
Operating expense for the second quarter was $3.53 million, 71% higher than the same quarter in fiscal 2015 and 10% higher than last quarter. The change year over year is mostly due to the expected spending in the two acquired businesses as well as a slight increase in resources necessary to prepare for the upcoming launch of the company’s new IP phone business.
EBITDA was $0.41 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, up from $0.21 million in the same period last year. Operating income in the second quarter was $0.14 million, up from $0.10 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015.
Net income for the second quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $0.08 million ($0.002 per share fully diluted), compared to a net loss of $0.16 million ($0.006 per share fully diluted) for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.
Sangoma had working capital of $6.46 million on December 31, up from the $6.36 million on June 30, 2015. The company generated positive cash flow from operations of $1.12 million during the second quarter, resulting in a cash balance of $2.92 million, as the company prepared to fund the earn-outs that were coming in January 2016.
