Financial Results

Sales bookings for the year ended March 31, 2016 were $5.20 million compared to $4.64 million in the year ended March 31, 2015. Approximately 58% of sales were new projects the remainder were one off sales or service and maintenance contracts. There were 47 project sales made in the year with an average value of $64 thousand.

At March 31, 2016 Vigil had a backlog of approximately $3.28 million (including $1.40 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) compared to $3.00 million (including $918 thousand in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) at March 31, 2015. In fiscal 2016 the average value of each sale was $82 thousand compared to $97 thousand in the prior year. In fiscal 2016 the majority of installations were smaller assisted living and stand alone memory care. The Company's backlog is the total estimated contract revenue for contracts which are signed, and have not been completed (and may not have commenced).

Revenue for the year ended March 31, 2016 was $4.84 million compared to $4.62 million in the year ended March 31, 2015, an increase of 5%. Project revenue from new and existing customers made up 52% of total revenue; the remaining revenue came from follow on sales to existing customers. These sales include service and maintenance billings and replacement products including wireless devices and communication equipment and were up 13% over fiscal 2015. There were 42 projects completed in fiscal 2016 with an average value of $65 thousand compared to 43 with an average value of $70 thousand in fiscal 2015.

The gross margin percentage for the year ended March 31, 2016 was 52% compared to 50% for the year ended March 31, 2015. The appreciating US dollar increased gross margins past management expectations of between 45% and 50%.

Operating expenditures for the year ended March 31, 2016 were $2.36 million compared to $2.21 million for the same period ended March 31, 2015.

Earnings before income taxes for the year ended March 31, 2016 were $177 thousand, or $0.02 per share, compared to $152 thousand, or $0.01 per share per share, for the previous year. The increase in earnings reflects the improved revenue and margin. Net earnings and comprehensive income for fiscal 2016 was $305 thousand. During the current year, due to continued profitability and the timing of the expiry of the Company's tax operating losses, the Company recognized a deferred income tax asset of $128 thousand. There was no deferred income tax recognized in prior periods. The Company's estimation of income taxes includes evaluating the recoverability of deferred tax assets based on an assessment of the ability to use the underlying tax deductions before they expire against future taxable income. To the extent estimates of future taxable income differ from actual, earnings would be affected in a subsequent period.

Non-IFRS Measure

For the year ended March 31, 2016, we are disclosing Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS financial measure, as a supplementary indicator of operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before, interest, income taxes, amortization, stock based compensation and currency gains or losses including derivative foreign exchange differences. We are presenting the non-IFRS financial measure in our filings because we use it internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and to evaluate our performance and because we believe that our current and potential investors and analysts use the measure to assess current and future operating results and to make investment decisions. It is a non-IFRS measure, may not be comparable to other companies and it is not intended as a substitute for IFRS measures.
