Financial Results

Revenue for the three-months ended September 30, 2014 was $1.04 million compared to $1.31 million in the three-month period ended September 30, 2013, a decrease of 20%. Project revenue made up 53% 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.

Bookings for the quarter were $1.02 million down 8% compared to $1.12 million in the three-month period ended September 30, 2013.

At September 30, 2014 Vigil had a backlog of approximately $3.02 million (including $1.29 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) compared to approximately $3.26 million (including $1.45 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) at September 30, 2013. At September 30, 2014, Vigil's backlog included 34 projects at varying stages of installation and progress billing with an average project size of $89 thousand compared to 38 projects with an average value of $86 thousand at September 30, 2013. Projects can include individual buildings or floors of multiple phase campus construction. 

The gross margin percentage for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was 49% compared to 45% for the three months ended September 30, 2013. Gross margin was slightly higher than management's usual expectations of margins of between 42% and 47%.

Expenditures for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $532 thousand, down 8% from $577 thousand for the period ended September 30, 2013. Expenses were higher in the prior year because a 162% increase in Vigil's share price had increased the value of share based awards resulting in an unusually large compensation adjustment.

Net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2014 was $10 thousand, or $0.001 per share compared to income of $22 thousand, or $0.001 per share for the previous year. The decline in profitability relates to the 20% decrease in revenue year over year.

Non-IFRS Measure

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, 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.
