Attn: Business/High-Tech Editors

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - International Datacasting Corporation (TSX:IDC), a global leader in digital content distribution solutions for the world's premiere broadcasters, announced its financial results today for the nine and three month periods ended October 31, 2011. All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Financial Highlights

For the Nine Months Ending October 31 FY2012 vs. October 31 FY2011:

  • Revenue of $23.0 million vs. $22.9 million
  • Gross margins of 42% vs. 44%
  • Operating expenses of $10.4 million vs. $10.9 million
  • EBITDA1 of $81,427 vs. $370,823

For the Three Months Ending October 31 FY2012 vs. October 31 FY2011:

  • Revenue of $7.3 million vs. $8.9 million
  • Gross margins of 43% vs. 44%
  • Operating expenses of $3.4 million vs. $3.3 million
  • EBITDA1 of $12,061 versus $1.14 million

International Datacasting's revenues grew by 1% over the first nine months of the fiscal year vs. the same period in FY2011. Strong growth over the period and expansion into emerging markets in continental Africa, driven by the success of our end-to-end digital broadcast initiative offset the one-time impact of the digital cinema rollout related to the FIFA 2010 World Cup in the previous year.

"Our organic growth initiatives have been successful including recognizing revenue of over $7 million in the last twelve months from our work in Africa. Other initiatives are on the go with a heavy focus on the video space, video-on-demand, the over the top (OTT) video segment and in other global markets including ad insertion and targeted advertising," stated Adam E. Adamou, Executive Chairman. "Everyone at IDC is working hard to launch these products over the next several quarters."

"We believe there is considerable pent-up demand for the expansion of services in IDC's markets that is being frustrated by ongoing economic concerns and, as a result, very conservative business practices - including delays - among our customers. We have to be patient since the demand certainly appears to exist and the pressure to expand continues to build," said Frederick Godard, President and CEO. "Fortunately, IDC is well capitalized with a growing working capital base that is capable of weathering the present economic uncertainties until we can take advantage of these future growth possibilities."
