Trans-Lux Reports Year End Results

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Trans-Lux Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TNLX) ("Trans-Lux" or the "Company"), a leading supplier of Digital Displays and next generation LED lighting, reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013 on May 13, 2014. Trans-Lux President and Chief Executive Officer J.M. Allain made the announcement.

Year Ended December 31, 2013
Revenues for 2013 totaled $20.9 million, down from $23.0 million for 2012. Loss from continuing operations for the year of 2013 was $2.5 million (loss of $2.40 per share), compared with a loss of $1.2 million (loss of $1.97 per share) in 2012. This year's loss from continuing operations included a $1.1 million benefit for warrant valuation adjustment and a loss of $348,000 on the sale of receivables. The prior year's loss from continuing operations included a $4.0 million benefit for warrant valuation adjustment. The Company had EBITDA of $1.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared with $3.1 million for 2012. The Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 13, 2014, contained a going concern qualification from its independent registered public accounting firm.

"We are a very different company today than we were just a year ago. We have an LED Lighting company that is producing revenue and we have a new line of LED displays which is making inroads in markets where we could not compete in the past. Our pipeline is strong and I believe that 2014 will be a breakout year for us," said Mr. Allain. "We continue, however, to be hampered by our cash position. We are losing deals and profit because of our lack of cash. Fixing this is a priority for me and the Board of Directors."

Fourth Quarter 2013
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $5.8 million, compared with $4.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Trans-Lux recorded a loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $618,000 (loss of $0.59 per share), compared to a loss from continuing operations of $653,000 (loss of $0.64 per share) in the fourth quarter of 2012. The 2013 fourth quarter results include a $153,000 benefit for a warrant valuation adjustment and the 2012 fourth quarter results included a $765,000 benefit for a warrant valuation adjustment.

(1)EBITDA is defined as earnings before effect of interest, income taxes,
   depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is presented here because it is a
   widely accepted financial indicator of a company's ability to service
   and/or incur indebtedness. However, EBITDA should not be considered as an
   alternative to net income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with
   accounting principles generally accepted in the United States or as a
   measure of a company's profitability or liquidity. The Company's measure
   of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by
   other companies.

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...

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...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
