MARKHAM, ONTARIO / TNW-ACCESSWIRE / May 23, 2014 – 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 under IFRS for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, ended March 31, 2014.
Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $3.5 million, up 9% from the same quarter last year in fiscal 2013.
“I am pleased to again report solid revenue growth over last year”, said Bill Wignall, President and CEO of Sangoma. “While sales of new products remain our primary focus, during the last quarter or so, we’ve put extra attention into sales of our legacy products as well. The market for those products is likely to decline over time, so our only alternative is to fight for share, which we’ve done by entering new geographies or forming new partnerships to strengthen share in certain countries. That helped in our third quarter, although perhaps not by quite as much as we would have liked, due to the ‘lumpiness’ in orders as described previously. At the same time, we continue to be prudent with operating expenses, and as a result, have produced healthy Operating Income once again this quarter, delivering a significant swing from one year ago.”
1 Operating Income and EBITDA are metrics used by the Company to monitor its performance and the definitions may be found in the accompanying MD&A posted today at www.sedar.com.
Gross profit was $2.34 million for the quarter or 67% of revenue, just slightly above the levels the Company typically expects.
Operating expense for the third quarter was $2.12 million, down $0.03 million (1%) from the $2.15 million last year.
Operating income was $0.22 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to an operating loss of $0.16 million in the same quarter a year ago. Net Income for the quarter was $0.16 million ($0.005 per share fully diluted), compared to a net loss of $0.14 million (-$0.005 per share fully diluted) for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
Sangoma continues to maintain a solid balance sheet with over $4 million in cash and working capital of $10.99 million, as compared to $10.62 million on June 30, 2013.
