Memex Inc. Releases Q3-2017 Financial Results: Record Bookings and Backlog Set the Stage for a Return to Growth

Burlington, ON, Canada – August 28, 2017 – Memex Inc. (“Memex” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: OEE), a global leader in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) manufacturing productivity software, today released its third quarter financial and operational highlights for its 2017 fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2017. All results are reported in Canadian dollars.

Summary Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter Ended June 30, 2017:

  • Memex reported revenue of $529 thousand, 42% lower than the same quarter a year ago, but up 52% sequentially;
  • Gross margin of 56.4% was down from 72.5% reported the same quarter a year ago – (excluding Amortization and Client Services labour, which was down 16.1% in Q3-2017 vs 2016, gross margin is down only 7.3%).
  • Bookings[i] for the quarter were a record $1.04 million, up 16% from the same quarter a year ago, and 82% higher than Q2-2017;
  • The Company reported a net and comprehensive loss of $1.078 million for the quarter, equating to a $0.009 loss per share. This compares with a $447 thousand net and comprehensive loss in Q3 last year, and a $0.004 loss per share.
  • At June 30, 2017, the Company had $2.34 million in current assets including $1.60 million in cash and $976 thousand in working capital.

Management Commentary:

“Memex began F2017 with clients sitting on the side-lines due to uncertainties introduced during the 2016 U.S. election that impacted much of the discretionary spending within the US manufacturing sector. Mid-way through our third quarter this client behaviour appears to have shifted and we experienced a significant ramp in current and new customer engagement. Although our third quarter results were down year-over-year, we did improve by more than 50% over the prior quarter and are pleased to report record bookings of $1 million during Q3, as well as exiting the quarter with record backlog near $1.6 million,” said David McPhail, President and CEO of Memex.  “In addition, since the end of June we have announced over $480 thousand in purchase orders as demand from the U.S. manufacturing sector continues to ramp and more importantly, we recently announced our largest single-customer deployment with a plant wide adoption of our technology. Recent industry data also portrays an improving macro picture, with a U.S Commerce Department survey that showed factory activity rising to a 3-year high, and the U.S. Cutting Tool Institute report that June consumption increased 6% year-over-year, and year-to-date was up 5.8% compared to the same period in 2016. Based on our conversations with customers and prospects, we expect these trends to continue.”
