MARKHAM, ON, Aug. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Nightingale Informatix Corporation ("Nightingale" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NGH), an application service provider (ASP) of electronic health record (EHR) software and related services, announces its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

  • Revenue was $3.7 million, down 1% compared to $3.8 million in Q1 F2014, and down 7% from $4.0 million in Q4 F2014. The variance from F2014 primarily reflects a decrease in non-recurring revenues which was partially offset by a 9% increase in recurring revenues.
  • Gross profit was $3.3 million, or 88% of revenue, compared to $3.3 million, or 89% of revenue, in Q1 F2014 and $3.6 million, or 90% of revenue, in Q4 F2014.
  • Operating Expenses, excluding stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization costs were $2.9 million compared to $3.2 million in Q1 F2014 and $3.2 million in Q4 F2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $0.3 million, 9% of revenue, an increase of 19% from $0.1 million, or 3% of revenue, in Q1 F2014 and down from $0.4 million or 10% of revenue, in Q4 F2014.
  • Net loss was $0.1 million compared to a net loss of $0.8 million in Q1 F2014 and net loss of $0.6 million in Q4 F2014.
  • Cash provided by operations was $1.6 million compared to cash provided by operations of $0.2 million in Q1 F2014.
  • Total deferred revenue was $5.5 million up from $4.8 million at March 31, 2014.
  • In May 2014, the Company announced the promotion of Jamie Cappelli to Executive Vice President of Operations and in July 2014, the Company announced the appointment of Ray Payette as Chief Technology Officer. 
  • In July 2014, unveiled its next generation cloud-based EHR – Nightingale EHR (Nexia).
  • In August 2014, the Company announced a commitment for an investment of $3.5 million in the form of a subordinated term loan to fund the sales and marketing programs to capitalize on its next generation product Nexia.

"We are at the tail-end of our transition phase. Nexia, our next generation product, has started to attract the attention of buying organizations and we are very encouraged by the rate of growth of our pipeline," said Sam Chebib, President and CEO. "We have started to shift our investment from product development towards sales and marketing, the result of which will start to become evident in the next few financial periods."

Fiscal 2015 First Quarter Financial Review

The Company's results are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Revenue for Q1 F2015 was $3.7 million, a decrease of $76,966 from $3.8 million for Q1 F2014.  This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in non-recurring revenues which was partially offset by a 9% increase in recurring revenues.

Recurring Revenue2 for Q1 F2015 was $2.8 million (77% of revenue), an increase of $0.2 million, or 9%, from $2.6 million (69% of revenue) in Q1 F2014.  The increase in Recurring Revenue in Q1 was primarily the result of an increase in revenues from the Company's Nightingale On Demand and NightingaleEHR (Nexia) products.

For Q1 F2015, gross margin was 88% ($3.3 million gross profit) compared to 89% ($3.3 million gross profit) for Q1 F2014. 

Operating expenses for Q1 F2015 decreased 7% to $2.9 million (79% of revenue), excluding charges for stock based compensation and depreciation and amortization, compared to operating expenses of $3.2 million (85% of revenue), excluding charges for stock based compensation and depreciation and amortization, for Q1 F2014.

For Q1 F2015, Adjusted EBITDA was $0.3 million (9% of revenue), compared to $0.1 million (3% of revenue) in Q1 F2014.  

The impact of fluctuations in the rate of exchange between the US Dollar and Canadian Dollar on Q1 F2015 EBITDA were negligible.  The $0.1 million gain from foreign currency in Q1 F2015 is predominantly the result of the re-measurement of the Company's term loans (denominated in US Dollars) into Canadian Dollars.

Included in net loss for Q1 F2015 is a financial gain of $0.03 million.  The financial gain is related to the change in valuation of a derivative asset that is embedded in the Company's Series B convertible debentures.    

For Q1 F2015, net loss was $61,732 compared to a net loss of $0.8 million in Q1 F2014.

Cash and cash equivalents on June 30, 2014 were $0.2 million, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 71%, from March 31, 2014.

At June 30, 2014, total common shares issued and outstanding were 94,758,915.

The financial statements and MD&A will be available at www.nightingalemd.com and filed on www.sedar.com on August 27, 2014.  This press release should be read in conjunction with Nightingale's Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis for the year ended March 31, 2014.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures
The Company internally measures its performance and results of initiatives through a number of measures that are not recognized under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. 

1.  Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure that management believes is a useful measurement to evaluate the performance of the Company. Investors should be cautioned, however, that Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings as determined in accordance with IFRS. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methods used by other companies and, accordingly, it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before other loss (income), interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and business acquisition, integration and other costs. Management believes it is useful to exclude these items as they are either non-cash expenses, items that cannot be influenced by management in the short term, or items that do not impact core operating performance, and Management uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting purposes.

The following provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Loss and Comprehensive Loss:

2.  Recurring and Non-Recurring Revenue
The Company has included recurring revenue and non-recurring revenue measurements since it believes that this information is useful to investors to evaluate its performance. Investors should be cautioned, however, that recurring revenue and non-recurring revenue should not be construed as an alternative to revenue as determined in accordance with IFRS.  Recurring Revenue is comprised of utilization fees, hosting, support and maintenance revenue, data management and transcription services and transactional fees.  Non-Recurring Revenue is comprised of revenues generated from sales of perpetual software and systems licenses and related training, data conversion and installation services.

Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
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 want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
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.
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 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
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, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...
