FY15 Q4 Revenue Expected to Be in the US$3.9 Million to US$4.1 Million Range With Adjusted EBITDA(1) Between US$850,000 and US$950,000

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 14, 2016) - Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation (TSX: ITC) (OTC: ISYRF) ("Intrinsyc" or the "Company"), a leading provider of solutions for the development of intelligent connected devices, today announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. Final results are subject to adjustments upon further review by the Company and its independent auditors in connection with the Company's fiscal 2015 audit. Revenue is expected to be in the range of US$3.9 million to US$4.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, up from US$3.4 million in the prior quarter and US$2.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter is expected to be between US$850,000 and US$950,000, up from US$324,000 in the prior quarter and US$65,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Revenue for fiscal 2015 is expected to be in the US$12.4 million to US$12.6 million range, an increase from US$10.1 million for fiscal 2014. Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2015 is expected to be between US$1.6 million and US$1.7 million, an increase from US$400,000 in fiscal 2014. Final financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2015 year ended December 31, 2015 are planned for release on March 23, 2016.

"Given the significantly better than anticipated financial results in relation to prior quarters and the period of time until our scheduled earnings release in March, we believe it is appropriate that we provide this preliminary report," stated Tracy Rees, President and Chief Executive Officer, Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation. "We achieved outstanding margin contribution from our engineering services due to high utilization and productivity, as well as lower labor cost due to a decline in the value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar. Increased hardware sales from our expanding client base also contributed to our strong revenue and EBITDA results. Although we expect continued positive momentum from our business initiatives, there could be future variances in our quarterly revenue due to the uneven size and timing of hardware orders. There may also be an increase in expenses due to our plan to increase spending related to investments in product development and marketing in subsequent quarters."

Financial information is reported in United States dollars and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").
