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.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo – to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY – is now accepting Hackathon proposals. Hackathon sponsorship benefits include general brand exposure and increasing engagement with the developer ecosystem. At Cloud Expo 2014 Silicon Valley, IBM held the Bluemix Developer Playground on November 5 and ElasticBox held the DevOps Hackathon on November 6. Both events took place on the expo fl...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
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...
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.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
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...

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.
