Financial Highlights

Three Month Comparative Results

The Company reported revenue of US$4.3 million, up 90% over the same period in the prior year of US$2.3 million and up 6% over the US$4.0 million in the prior fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. The increase in revenue was due to increased revenue from the sale of product development engineering services, as well as hardware products.

The Company had net income of US$490,738 in the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of US$328,335 in the same period in the prior year and net income of US$805,352 in the prior quarter.

Gross margin2 in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was 38%, which was lower than the 47% gross margin in the same period in the prior year and the 49% gross margin in the previous fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Reduction in gross margin over the prior period was due to several factors, including; the temporary increased engagement of third party contractors, increased Vancouver facilities expansion costs, ramp up of the Company's new engineering center in Boulder, increased labor cost due to the recent strengthening in the value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar, and the increased sales of embedded computing products to a single client at less than typical margins. Adjusted EBITDA3 was as follows:
