IDC Reports 2006 Results



    CALGARY, March 30 /CNW/ - Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd. (IDC or the
Company) (TSX: IDL) a global supplier in the high growth digital radiography
(DR) equipment market, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter
and the full year ended December 31, 2006. For the 2006 year, IDC reported a
loss of $0.14 per share before one time write downs, for a full-year loss of
$0.25 per share after write downs on revenues of $39,030,402. For the fourth
quarter, the Company reported a loss of $0.07 per share before one-time write
downs, on revenues of $12,533, 867 and a loss of $0.19 per share after write
downs.
    Commenting on the results of 2006, Darryl Stein, President & CEO of IDC
said, "In 2006, the Company focused its efforts on top line sales growth,
market share capture and channel development. Significant investments were
made in new products, new geographies and new markets. These investments added
over 50 new channel partners globally and growth through new products into the
veterinary and chiropractic markets. IDC has invested into building a global
distribution network, and a broad array of products to meet the growing demand
for digital technology.
    The Company has experienced exceptional growth over the last two years -
revenues growing by over 550% in that period - with a strategy that has taken
more time, money and resources than was anticipated, negatively affecting the
Company's financial performance with respect to expenses and write downs.
    The introduction of new products to displace earlier models equated to a
higher rate of inventory obsolescence than in the past, and an increased
learning curve for the Company's technical personnel and integration efforts.
    The focus in 2007 is to reap the benefits of investments made in 2006.
The Company's operations and infrastructure are being revamped to more
effectively support the sales engine we have created. We started restructuring
the operations of the Company in late Q3 of 2006. New management and staff
were hired; new processes and new tools are being implemented, including the
implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. In January
2007 the financial modules were implemented, and the testing and validation of
the manufacturing, inventory, purchase order and sales order modules has been
completed and will go live during April 2007. This provides full financial and
operational connectivity with a direct impact on the efficiencies and
profitability of the organization.
    The internal restructuring and implementation efforts have been arduous
but essential to the long-term health of the business. We made a deliberate
decision to give the Company time to complete implementing all of the
restructuring efforts and as such revenues booked for Q1 will be soft, but for
all the right reasons. I am confident that within 60 days IDC will not only be
positioned, but capable of delivering on the significant opportunities ahead
of us."
