OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- TrueContext Mobile Solutions Corporation (TSX VENTURE:TMN) ("TrueContext" or "the Company"), a mobile data solutions company today announced results for its three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.
Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2012
Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $631,311 represented an increase of 49.0% over total revenue for the third quarter of 2011 of $423,593.
-- Third quarter 2012 subscription license revenue grew by 80.7% to $494,889 from $273,938 in the third quarter of 2011, while third quarter 2012 operator channel subscription revenue grew to $285,969 from $141,606 in the third quarter of 2011 representing growth of 101.9%. -- Third quarter 2012 services revenue decreased by 8.8% to $136,422 from $149,655 in the third quarter of 2011. -- Third quarter 2012 net loss was $452,184 compared to a third quarter 2011 net loss of $747,157, representing an improvement of approximately 40%, and a second quarter 2012 net loss of $564,897. National Research Council Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program ("NRC-IRAP") funding and increased refundable investment tax credits on eligible research and development expenditures contributed to the reduction in net loss in the 2012 third quarter. This represents the third straight quarter of net loss reduction as revenues increased. -- As at September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $500,587 and net working capital of $141,698 and recently announced entering into a commitment letter with BDC Capital Inc. for a term credit facility for up to $1 million.
"In 2012 so far, we have steadily grown our subscriber base, particularly with subscribers added through our operator partners, providing us with strong revenue growth and enabling us to steadily reduce our net loss. Our third quarter 2012 operator channel subscription revenue grew by over 100% over last year and we recently added Rogers Communications and Bell in Canada to our operator channel network. We continue on our path to balance strong subscriber and revenue growth while steadily progressing towards profitability," said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer, TrueContext.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications.

This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
