- BACKLOG AT RECORD HIGH -
OTTAWA, Dec. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Magor Corporation (TSX-V: MCC), a technology leader in visual collaboration solutions, today announced the second quarter (Q2) financial results for the three month period ended October 31, 2014.
"We have been making significant progress with a number of existing and new accounts, as evidenced by the increase in the amount of order backlog we reported for the quarter," said Mike Pascoe, President and CEO of Magor Corporation. "During the quarter, we received a record order, which resulted in our backlog growing to a record $900,000 as at October 31, 2014."
"We are pleased to enter the new calendar year with the introduction of the Windows version of our cloud-based software," continued Mr. Pascoe. "The introduction of the Windows version is in final testing stages and will be released with the next 30 days. We see this new Windows version as key to opening new market opportunities for Magor. In particular, a Windows desktop client coupled with the Aerus cloud service offering allows Magor to address a much broader desktop marketplace with a monthly recurring revenue service."
Mr. Pascoe further commented that the Company entered into an agreement with our EMEA channel partner whereby commencing in calendar 2015, the channel partner will be sourcing most of the hardware components for their customers locally. This will allow Magor to focus on the high margin software component of these orders. Although the overall revenues on these EMEA orders will be lower, the margins obtained on these orders will be extremely high as a result of these orders being almost entirely software.
- During the quarter, the Company received an order for US$514,000 from a new customer in the EMEA region.
- During the quarter, Magor announced a follow-on order from a Middle Eastern Government agency for a total contract value of $337,000 in connection with a large multi-phase deployment.

- During the quarter, the Company closed a non-brokered private placement of subordinated secured debt financing in the amount of $1,525,000 through the issuance of 1,525 Units. Each Unit consisted of a $1,000 par value secured convertible debenture and 500 common share purchase warrants. As part of this financing, a company controlled by the Chairman of the Company exchanged $1,000,000 of outstanding promissory notes for 1,000 Units.
- Subsequent to the quarter, the Company entered into agreements, with a company controlled by the Chairman of the Company, to borrow $750,000 by way of promissory notes bearing interest at 12% per annum.
