SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012.
The Company reported a net loss of $334,494 or $(0.00) per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to a net income of $671,417 or $0.00 per share for the prior year's third quarter. For the third quarter of fiscal 2013 revenues totaled $79,072 compared to $1,281,845 for the third quarter of the prior year. The most recent quarter included $0 of patent license revenues compared to $1,155,000 for the third quarter of the prior year. Gross profit for the third quarter was $6,351 or 8% of revenues, compared to $1,140,046 or 89% of revenues, for the prior year's third quarter. Operating expenses decreased to $400,045 from $437,629 for the prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to reduced patent related costs.
For the nine months ended December 31, 2012 the Company reported a net loss of $1,043,482 or $(0.00) per share on revenues of $336,567. For the comparable nine months of the prior year the Company reported net income of $1,566,084 or $0.01 per share on revenues of $4,506,151. The Company's results are impacted by the timing and amount of license fees and there were no significant licensing revenues so far in fiscal 2013.
"Q3 was essentially a transitional quarter for e.Digital," commented Fred Falk, President and CEO of e.Digital. "With the reexamination of two of our key patents behind us, we were able to reignite our patent monetization efforts. Through our newly retained law firm, Handal & Associates, we have been aggressively pursuing parties believed to infringe the Company's Flash-R patents covering the use of flash memory technologies." In October and November 2012, the Company commenced new enforcement action by filing six complaints in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. In December 2012 and January 2013 the Company filed an additional ten complaints asserting that products made and sold by the defendant companies infringe the Company's U.S. patents, and dismissed one defendant without prejudice. "We will continue to work hard to protect and enforce the Company's intellectual property and we expect to see positive results through our efforts," continued Falk.
In addition to the Flash-R progress, Q3 was a milestone quarter for new technology development. The Company was granted six patents for context and interpersonal awareness systems technologies, thereby establishing rights and officially launching the Company's Nunchi® patent portfolio. Over the last several months, the Company filed three new Nunchi related patent applications. The Company is also currently developing technologies in the areas of cloud technology, information security and user authentication. "As we return to monetizing our Flash-R patent portfolio we are also now better poised to pursue Nunchi licensing opportunities and to bring on-line our next family of IP," concluded Falk.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
