CEO George Rossolatos announced Avante Logixx Inc.'s results for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 ("Q2-16"). During the quarter, the Group generated revenues of $3,494,705, an increase of 57.9% over the quarter ended September 30, 2014. This was attributable to growth in recurring revenues, and to the inclusion of INTO in August 2014 and LVS in April 2015. Last year's comparatives contained only ASI and 40 days results of INTO. Overall gross margin was $1,403,605 or 40.1% as compared to $844,383 or 38.1% in Q2-15. The increase in gross profit (%) was also affected by a SR&ED refund of approximately $248,000 in the current fiscal year with $133,000 of costs associated with this refund appearing in G&A expenses. The Company registered Adjusted EBITDA of $432,078 in Q2-16 as compared to $263,653 in Q2-15.

Overall revenues for the six month period ended September 30, 2014 was $6,849,828, which was 61.6% higher than the $4,240,042 registered for the six month period ended September 30, 2014. This increase was attributable mainly to the inclusion of the new subsidiaries, INTO and LVS. ASI's recurring revenues grew, particularly the monitoring revenues by 12%. This growth was a result of increased sale of monitoring and video analytics packages. Non-recurring revenues grew mainly due to INTO and LVS' inclusion. Further, revenues from international travel advisory and security management grew during this six month period. Installation revenues from INTO and LVS showed consistent growth.

Management notes that the acquisitions of INTO and LVS are making a substantial impact to the Company already. With plans for a corporate reorganization in the near future, the Company is confident that future performance of the Company will improve even further. The Company announced its intent to effect a corporate reorganization of ASI and LVS as well as certain management changes, details of which are contained in a separate press release disseminated by the Company today.

The Company also has a significant order backlog for security systems installations, both in high-end residential and condo / commercial real estate sectors, including some large jobs most of which we expect to see significant levels of completion during the current year.

Net income before tax for Q2-16 was $326,582 as compared to $157,740 for Q2-15. This was after amortizing intangible assets in the amount of $101,934 and professional fees relating to the SR&ED refund in the amount of $133,000. Net income for the six month period was $484,785 as compared to $255,795 for the same six month period last year.

Based on current trends, and the order backlog, management is confident that the Company will continue to grow at same organic levels in the foreseeable future while it continues to seek new acquisition opportunities.

The Company's balance sheet is strong with approximately $3,000,000 of cash on hand which will facilitate the Company's pursuit of other acquisition opportunities. The Company is currently assessing several promising acquisition opportunities that are strategic and accretive, which on completion of at least one, would further improve market share and profitability.

As announced on November 16, 2015, Avante will be hosting a conference call tomorrow morning (Wednesday, November 18, 2015) to discuss the aforementioned quarterly results at 8:30am EST.
