VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 08, 2017) - 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 its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. Intrinsyc achieved revenue growth of 7%, with revenue of US$4.3 million (CDN$5.7 million), net income of US$210,128 (CDN$327,171), and earnings per share of US$0.01 (CDN$0.02) in the three months ended December 31, 2016 over the same period in the prior year.
Increases in Embedded Computing Hardware revenue from the Company's expanding client base led to revenue growth over the same period in the prior year, and annually. Revenue was US$4.3 million (CDN$5.7 million) which was an increase from US$4.0 million (CDN$5.3 million) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Fiscal 2016 revenue was US$17.5 million (CDN$ $23.1 million), which was an increase of 39% over the prior year. Net income for Fiscal 2016 was US$1.7 million (CDN$2.2 million), with earnings per share of US$0.08 (CDN$0.11).
"During the fourth quarter and overall in Fiscal 2016, we made strong progress in increasing revenue from Intrinsyc's Open-Q™ computing modules, as existing customer's products mature in the market, as well as in gaining new design wins and production clients," stated Tracy Rees, President and Chief Executive Officer, Intrinsyc. "The Company increased design and production wins for Open-Q™ computing modules from 33 to 36 and 8 to 11, respectively, during the quarter. This contributed to a 44% increase in hardware revenue compared to the previous and year ago period. The increase in hardware revenue from production clients is an important measure of our progress as the company recently made a strategic shift to add products with repeat revenue potential to our existing non-recurring engineering services business. Adjusted EBITDA1 performance in the fourth quarter was negatively impacted by a combination of increased labor costs caused by the strengthening in the value of the Canadian dollar, additional costs to achieve long term client satisfaction on certain fixed-fee client projects and the reallocation of engineering resources to R&D development efforts to provide for the rapid advancement of several new computing platforms."

Three Month Comparative Results
The Company reported revenue of US$4.3 million (CDN$5.7 million), up 7% over the same period in the prior year of US$4.0 million (CDN$5.3 million). The increase in revenue over the same period in the prior year was due primarily to increased revenue from the sale of hardware products.
The Company had net income of US$210,128 (CDN$327,171) in the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to net income of US$805,347 (CDN$1,110,513) in the same period in the prior year.
Gross margin2 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was 36%, which was lower than the 49% gross margin in the same period in the prior year and 43% in the previous second quarter of fiscal 2016. Decrease in gross margin over the same period in the prior year was due to the change in revenue mix, which saw a significant increase in revenues from the Company's Embedded Computing Hardware business which has a much lower gross margin and decrease in engineering services revenues. As well, gross margins in the Company's engineering services segment decreased due to increased labor costs due to the strengthening in the value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar and higher cost on a couple of fixed-fee projects.
