Net income                        $     2,120   $     1,352      56.8%
                                                                      

Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2013, increased by $1,086,000, or 6.2%, to $18,637,000, compared with net sales of $17,551,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase in net sales was due to our continued emphasis on our direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for our recurring customer base.

Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2013, increased by $777,000, or 7.1%, to $11,755,000, compared with gross profit of $10,978,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase is attributed to increased sales volumes and a reduction in product costs for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Income from operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013, increased by $1,242,000, or 55.0%, to $3,500,000, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase in operating income is attributed to increased gross profit driven by our increased sales volumes at reduced levels of operating expenses.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $2,120,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1,352,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.

The Company had cash of $12,195,000 at December 31, 2013, compared with cash of $12,453,000 at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $258,000. The decrease in cash for the three months ended December 31, 2013, was due to $1,518,000 of cash used in financing activities, primarily cash dividends paid to shareholders, and $47,000 of net cash used in investing activities, partially offset by $1,307,000 of cash provided by operating activities.

Other Significant Events for the First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014

  • On November 20, 2013, the Company's common stock was listed and began trading on the NYSE MKT exchange, increasing visibility and shareholder liquidity.
  • During the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per common share.

Mark Libratore, the Company's President and CEO, commented, "Our financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 demonstrate our continued emphasis on growing our customer base, increasing our earnings, and improving our operating margins. The cash generated from our operations provides a quarterly cash dividend to our shareholders and the flexibility for the Company to grow through a combination of our direct response advertising efforts and strategic acquisitions that allow us to acquire new customers at competitive rates.

We will continue to manage the levels of our direct response advertising spend, implement process improvements, and explore potential acquisition targets to grow our business and increase operating margins during fiscal year 2014."

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
