-Traction on Aerus service offering significantly exceeds expectations-
OTTAWA, Sept. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Magor Corporation (TSX-V:MCC), a global leader in visual collaboration solutions, today announced its first quarter (Q1) financial results for the three month period ended July 31, 2013, an update on the progress of Aerus adoption by service providers and solutions integrators and a Joint Venture to sale and market its products in the Chinese market.
Financial and Operational Highlights
"We are encouraged by the activity shown by carriers around the globe towards our Aerus services," said Mike Pascoe, President and CEO of Magor Corporation. "With the full launch of our Aerus cloud-based visual collaboration solutions in the next couple of weeks, we have been successful at securing service trials from more than 20 carriers and solutions integrators across the globe aimed towards deploying Aerus into their markets. Approximately half of these opportunities are large Tier 1 and Tier 2 carriers and we expect more to be added over the next quarter. These contracts will transition us into a recurring revenue model that will bring significant predictability into our cash flow going forward. While excited about our Aerus progress, it is important to note the continued progress in our existing transaction business as this will continue to be a key part of revenue this year and beyond. Our efforts during the quarter have been focused toward building a solid foundation for Magor to grow on, and with the initiatives that were taken, we expect accelerated growth for the Company in the upcoming quarters."
Total revenue was $196,537 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to $394,194 for the corresponding period in 2012.
Revenue from hardware was $103,845 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to $208,654 for the corresponding periods in 2012.
Revenue from software was $20,008 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to $87,304 for the corresponding period in 2012.
Revenue from support and other services was $72,684 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to $98,236 for the corresponding period in 2012.
The decreases in hardware and software revenues for the quarter were due to the timing in the fulfillment of an order that was delayed until a future quarter.
The decrease in support services revenue for the quarter was due to a decline in customer renewals of their support agreements on previous software installations, combined with a reduction in installation revenues in the current year compared the prior year due to lower hardware sales.
Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margin
Gross profit was $52,283 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to $207,890 for the corresponding period in 2012.
Gross profit margin was 26.6% for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to 52.7% for the corresponding periods in 2012.
The decrease in gross margins in the current quarter was due to reduction in higher margin software revenue, and the amount of fixed overhead expenses included in the cost of sales.
Operating expenses were $1,644,149 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2013, compared to $1,154,831 for the corresponding period in 2012.
