AmbiCom Reports 120% Revenue Improvement in Fiscal 2013

Revenues Increased 120% Year Over Year to a Record $3,300,472, While Achieving Profitability on the Bottom Line With Net Income of $530,013

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - AmbiCom Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: ABHI), a leading designer and developer of innovative wireless products for the medical and automotive verticals, and a distributor of innovative healthcare products that has sold more than one million devices worldwide, today announced financial results for its fiscal year ended July 31, 2013.

"AmbiCom's transition to profitability marks a key milestone for our management team and shareholders," said AmbiCom CEO John Hwang. "With triple-digit revenue growth rates and financial independence, management is focused on scaling revenues higher and unlocking long-term shareholder value by introducing new wireless products, such as the SDIO cards, and entering new retail markets, with products like the Solar Ionic Toothbrush."

Financial Highlights

  • Revenues: Total revenues increased 120%, from $1,502,676 to $3,300,472, due to increased demand for its wireless solutions, as the market transitions from traditional wired solution to wireless connectivity. Management anticipates demand to continue increasing with the introduction of its new SDIO cards and home medical devices.
  • Margins: Gross profit increased by 96%, from $896,777 to $1,753,418, due to the increase in overall revenues. While gross margins decreased from 59.7% to 53.1%, these levels will vary based on outsourcing costs, product mix, and its transition into retail. Operating expenses decreased 16% due to lower R&D, public relations, and other fees.
  • Net Income: Net income increased from a net loss of $595,700 to a net income of $530,013 due to revenue growth that outpaced growth in expenses. Management expects to remain profitable in FY2014 as it continues to cost-effectively grow the business and enhance long-term shareholder value.
  • Balance Sheet: Cash and equivalents increased 139% from $249,327 to $596,871, while current liabilities decreased 44% from $793,233 to $444,789. Current assets increased 38% from $758,751 to $1,045,712, yielding a strong current ratio. 

"Sales in the wireless medical device industry have grown at a rapid pace over the past few years as healthcare providers seek increased outpatient services and wireless technologies reduce service requirements and enhance patient quality of life," added Mr. Hwang. "We expect to see ongoing top- and bottom-line growth from this segment, driven by high-margin recurring income, while simultaneously focusing on a number of other initiatives to drive value."
