BRAMPTON, ON, Aug. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - DATA Group Ltd. (TSX: DGI) ("DATA Group") announced its consolidated financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

We continue to make progress on our Transformation Plan and remain focused on creating long-term enterprise value appreciation for our shareholders.  In the second quarter of 2014, we continued to reduce our costs, generate significant revenue from new business in the selected growth areas management has targeted and make progress on debt reduction.  At the same time, we continued to experience challenges due to the technological changes that are having an adverse effect on financial results in our industry.

Why is a Transformation Plan Required?

Our industry has seen wholesale changes over the last number of years, mostly due to rapid technological advances.  The competitive environment in which we operate has become even more challenging as our industry transforms to more digital forms of communications and adapts to new client demands for blended print and digital solutions.  These factors adversely impacted our financial results for 2013 and the first half of 2014.  DATA Group has responded with a Transformation Plan that establishes clear goals, all of which aim to enhance shareholder value. Our Transformation Plan is beginning to show results in the three key areas we have targeted; cost reduction, debt reduction and revenue stabilization.  In summary:

Cost Reduction

We reduced our cost structure by $13 million in 2013 and anticipate eliminating another $20 - $25 million in 2014 and 2015, mostly through a further reduction in locations, raw material costs and the number of employees.  In the second quarter of 2014, we realized modest incremental cost savings while continuing to make progress on a number of initiatives that will generate significant additional savings in the future.  The cost savings we have realized since the beginning of 2013 have been offset by a reduction in revenue, changes in our product mix and pricing pressures, driven by competitive activity and the technological change described above.

Debt Reduction

We reduced our long-term indebtedness by $8.0 million since the beginning of 2013, including a $1.5 million reduction in the second quarter of 2014, and we intend to further reduce debt going forward.  At the same time, our bank overdraft increased by $2.9 million and our working capital increased by $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 due to an increase in order volumes.  We have also commenced a normal course issuer bid for the purchase of up to $4.476 million of our outstanding 6.00% Convertible Unsecured Subordinated Debentures due June 30, 2017.

Revenue Stabilization

Our intent in 2014 is to stabilize our revenue and position ourselves for longer term growth.  Our plan to achieve this goal is based on;

  • Adding new sales talent
  • Winning market share in our traditional print business
  • Investing in the key growth areas we have identified; labels, marketing print and digital communications
  • Bundling our digital services with our print offerings to increase the value we provide to our customers and increase the contribution these services make to our overall revenue and profitability

Our results in the second quarter reflected progress towards this goal, with strong new business development results and overall revenue similar to last year's second quarter. During the second quarter of 2014, we generated strong revenue from new business and continued to make encouraging progress on a number of new business sales opportunities in the retail, financial services and transportation markets.

The significant changes we have made to our management and sales team in the past year have given us an aggressive focus on new business development and the talent to lead our Transformation Plan.  In the second quarter we continued to make personnel changes to strengthen our sales team and to make prudent investments to expand our capabilities in the growth areas we have targeted.

Refreshed Governance

As part of our Transformation Plan, earlier this year we began recruiting to refresh our board with new directors who could assist in our progress and represent the best interests of all shareholders.  After a thorough process, in June we were pleased to have four eminently qualified new board nominees, who replaced three retiring directors, join our board; Michael Blair, Rod Philips, Harinder S. Takhar and J.R. Kingsley Ward.  Our four new directors join Tom Spencer (Chairman), Bill Albino and Michael Suksi on our refreshed board.

Revenues

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, DATA Group recorded revenues of $76.8 million, a decrease of $1.0 million or 1.3% compared with the same period in 2013.  The decrease, before intersegment revenues, was the result of a $1.4 million decrease in the DATA East and West segment and was partially offset by a $0.5 million increase in the Multiple Pakfold segment.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, DATA Group recorded revenues of $154.7 million, a decrease of $6.0 million or 3.7% compared with the same period in 2013.  The decrease, before intersegment revenues, was the result of a $6.6 million decrease in the DATA East and West segment and was partially offset by a $0.7 million increase in the Multiple Pakfold segment. The decrease in revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 in the DATA EAST and West segment was primarily due to orders from existing customers for print-related products and services which did not repeat in 2014, aggressive pricing by DATA Group's competitors supplying similar products and services and a change in product mix.  The segment continued to experience revenue gains from new business, which partially offset declines in revenues from existing customers due to non-repeating orders, technological change and competitive activity.  The increase in revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 in the Multiple Pakfold segment was attributable to new business which arose as a result of the bankruptcy of a competitor.

Cost of Revenues and Gross Profit

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, cost of revenues increased to $58.9 million from $58.1 million for the same period in 2013.  Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $17.8 million, which represented a decrease of $2.0 million or 9.7% from $19.8 million for the same period in 2013.  The decrease in gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was attributable to a gross profit decrease of $2.0 million in the DATA East and West segment and was partially offset by a gross profit increase of $0.2 million in the Multiple Pakfold segment.  Gross profit as a percentage of revenues decreased to 23.2% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to 25.4% for the same period in 2013.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, cost of revenues decreased to $118.0 million from $119.2 million for the same period in 2013.  Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $36.6 million, which represented a decrease of $4.9 million or 11.7% from $41.5 million for the same period in 2013.  The decrease in gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was attributable to a gross profit decrease of $5.0 million in the DATA East and West segment and was partially offset by a gross profit increase of $0.1 million in the Multiple Pakfold segment.  Gross profit as a percentage of revenues decreased to 23.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to 25.8% for the same period in 2013.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses and Restructuring Expenses

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses, excluding amortization of intangible assets, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 decreased $0.9 million to $14.4 million compared to $15.3 million in the same period in 2013.  As a percentage of revenues, these costs were 18.8% of revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to 19.7% of revenues for the same period in 2013.  SG&A expenses, excluding amortization of intangible assets, for the six months ended June 30, 2014 decreased $1.9 million to $29.1 million compared to $31.0 million for the same period of 2013.  As a percentage of revenues, these costs were 18.8% of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to 19.3% of revenues for the same period in 2013.  The decrease in SG&A expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was attributable to cost saving initiatives implemented in 2013. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, DATA Group incurred restructuring expenses related to headcount reductions of $0.9 million and $1.7 million, respectively, as part of its ongoing restructuring initiatives.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, DATA Group incurred restructuring expenses related to headcount reductions and lease exit charges of $5.2 million and $6.0 million, respectively, as part of its 2013 restructuring initiatives.  The restructuring initiatives included closing facilities in Brockville, Ontario and Anjou, Québec and transferring the operations of The Fulfillment Solutions Advantage Inc. from Markham, Ontario to DATA Group's existing facility in Mississauga, Ontario.

Adjusted EBITDA

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, Adjusted EBITDA was $4.7 million, or 6.1% of revenues.  Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 decreased $1.1 million or 18.9% from the same period in the prior year and the Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter, as a percentage of revenues, decreased from 7.4% of revenues in 2013 to 6.1% of revenues for the same period in 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $10.1 million, or 6.5% of revenues. Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014 decreased $3.0 million or 23.1% from the same period in the prior year and the Adjusted EBITDA margin for the six month period, as a percentage of revenues, decreased from 8.2% of revenues in 2013 to 6.5% of revenues for the same period in 2014.  The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was due to the continued investment in DATA Group's growth strategy and a decline in revenues due to pricing concessions and changes in product mix, and was partially offset by cost savings realized as a result of its restructuring initiatives.  These costs included SG&A expense related to investments to launch new products and services.

Interest Expense

Interest expense on long-term debt outstanding under DATA Group's credit facilities, DATA Group's outstanding $45.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.00% Convertible Debentures, certain unfavourable lease obligations related to closed facilities and DATA Group's employee benefit plans was $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $1.6 million for the same period in 2013, and was $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $3.3 million for the same period in 2013.

Income Taxes

DATA Group reported income before income taxes of $0.4 million and a deferred income tax expense of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to loss before income taxes of $4.9 million, current income tax expense of $0.3 million and a deferred income tax recovery of $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  DATA Group reported income before income taxes of $1.5 million and a deferred income tax expense of $0.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to a loss before income taxes of $3.7 million, a current income tax expense of $1.6 million and a deferred income tax recovery of $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013.  The decrease in the current income tax expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was due to the reduction in taxable income as the result of the use of non-capital loss carry-forwards.  The increase in the deferred income tax expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was due to a change in estimates of future reversals of temporary differences.

Net Income

Net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was $0.3 million and $1.0 million, respectively, compared to a net loss of $3.7 million and $2.8 million, respectively, for same periods in 2013.  The increase in comparable profitability for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was due to lower SG&A expense, restructuring expenses, amortization of intangibles and current income tax expense during the second quarter and first half of 2014, respectively.  The increase in comparable profitability during the second quarter and first half of 2014, respectively, were partially offset by lower gross profit as a result of lower revenues and a larger deferred income tax expense during 2014.

INVESTING ACTIVITIES

Capital expenditures for the three months ended June 30, 2014 of $0.2 million related primarily to maintenance capital expenditures, which were financed by cash flow from operations.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, DATA Group incurred capital expenditures of $0.8 million related primarily to maintenance capital expenditures, which were financed by cash flow from operations.

FINANCING ACTIVITIES

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, DATA Group repaid $1.5 million and $3.5 million, respectively, of the principal amount outstanding under its Revolving Bank Facility.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements in this press release constitute "forward-looking" statements that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance, objectives or achievements of DATA Group, or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, performance, objectives or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  When used in this press release, words such as "may", "would", "could", "will", "expect", "anticipate", "estimate", "believe", "intend", "plan", and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  These statements reflect DATA Group's current views regarding future events and operating performance, are based on information currently available to DATA Group, and speak only as of the date of this press release.  These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions and should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such performance or results will be achieved.  Many factors could cause the actual results, performance, objectives or achievements of DATA Group to be materially different from any future results, performance, objectives or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  The principal factors, assumptions and risks that DATA Group made or took into account in the preparation of these forward-looking statements include the risk that DATA Group will not be successful in reducing the size of its legacy print business, reducing costs, reducing or refinancing its long-term debt and growing its digital communications business; the risk that DATA Group may not be successful in managing its organic growth; DATA Group's ability to invest in, develop and successfully market new products and services; competition from competitors supplying similar products and services; DATA Group's ability to grow its sales or even maintain historical levels of its sales of printed business documents; the impact of economic conditions on DATA Group's businesses; risks associated with acquisitions by DATA Group; increases in the costs of paper and other raw materials used by DATA Group; and DATA Group's ability to maintain relationships with its customers. Additional factors are discussed elsewhere in this press release and under the heading "Risks and Uncertainties" in DATA Group's management's discussion and analysis and in DATA Group's other publicly available disclosure documents, as filed by DATA Group on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).  Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in this press release as intended, planned, anticipated, believed, estimated or expected.  Unless required by applicable securities law, DATA Group does not intend and does not assume any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release includes certain non-GAAP measures as supplementary information. When used in this press release, EBITDA means earnings before interest and finance costs, taxes, depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 means EBITDA adjusted for restructuring expenses, respectively.  DATA Group believes that, in addition to net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful supplemental measures in evaluating the performance of DATA Group and its predecessors.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not earnings measures recognized by IFRS and do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS.  Therefore, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Investors are cautioned that neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA should be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of DATA Group's performance.  For a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, see Table 2 above.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, “I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline”; “I can make it better, but it will cost more”; “I can deliver faster, but not with these specs”; or “I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer”? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing ...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
As organizations shift toward IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. CommVault can ensure protection &E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Partnerships, will disc...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS soluti...
