Vigil Health Solutions Reports Increase in Bookings, Revenue & Earnings

VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwired - February 17, 2016) - Vigil Health Solutions Inc. ("Vigil") (TSX VENTURE: VGL) announces the results of operations for the quarter ending December 31, 2015.

Business Highlights

  • Earnings up 271% to $159 thousand compared to $43 thousand in the three month period ended December 31, 2014.
  • Revenue grew 15% to $1.40 million compared to $1.22 million in the three-month period ended December 31, 2014.
  • Increased sales bookings 42% to $1.47 million from $1.04 million in the three-month period ended December 31, 2014.
  • Vigil's backlog was up 39% to approximately $3.77 million from approximately $2.71 million at December 31, 2014.

"We had a strong third quarter as projects that were delayed in the second quarter, due to changes in construction schedules, were completed and revenue recognized. Management is focused on increasing sales to minimize fluctuations in revenue. The strong third quarter has also resulted in revenue and earnings surpassing that of the comparative nine month period," stated Troy Griffiths, President and CEO of Vigil Health Solutions Inc.

Financial Results

Sales bookings for the quarter were $1.47 million up 42% compared to $1.04 million in the three-month period ended December 31, 2014. While the increase in the value of sales denominated in US dollars has been partially responsible for the growth the majority of this gain relates to increased sales activity.

Revenue for the three-months ended December 31, 2015 was $1.40 million compared to $1.22 million in the three-month period ended December 31, 2014, an increase of 15%. Project revenue made up 56% 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.

At December 31, 2015 Vigil had a backlog of approximately $3.77 million (including $1.17 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) a 39% increase compared to approximately $2.71 million (including $1.01 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) at December 31, 2014. At December 31, 2015, Vigil's backlog included 41 projects at varying stages of installation and progress billing with an average project size of $92 thousand compared to 32 projects with an average value of $85 thousand at December 31, 2014. Projects can include individual buildings or floors of multiple phase campus construction. 

The gross margin percentage for the three months ended December 31, 2015 was 51% compared to 47% for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The positive effect of the increase in the US dollar resulted in a slightly higher gross margin than management's usual expectations of between 45% and 50%. 

Expenditures for the three months ended December 31, 2015 were $591 thousand, up 8% from $549 thousand for the period ended December 31, 2014. Expenses were higher because of increased staffing, travel, advertising and promotion costs and the impact of the higher US dollar.

Net income for the three month period ended December 31, 2015 was $159 thousand, or $0.009 per share compared to income of $43 thousand, or $0.003 per share for the previous year. The increase in profitability relates to the increase in revenue and gross margin.

Non-IFRS Measure

For the three and six month periods ended December 31, 2015, 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.
