OTTAWA, March 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Magor Corporation (TSX-V:MCC), a global leader in visual collaboration solutions, today announced third quarter (Q3) financial results for the three and nine-month period ended January 31, 2014.
"Q3 was our strongest quarter to date," said Mike Pascoe, President and CEO of Magor Corporation. "We have been building a solid foundation for our business, and are pleased to see the results of our initiatives. While orders are still subject to some short-term variability, we expect to see more predictable growth as a result of the greater number of large customers we are adding to our customer base. In Q3 we started recognizing recurring revenue from our Aerus cloud-based services, from which we expect significant growth going forward. In addition, we received our first orders from both a large UK Police Force as well as a major security provider in Brazil. This, along with our existing strong sales into this vertical in the Middle East and Canada reinforces the strength of our offering for Police and Security. During the quarter we also introduced our support for Windows Operating Systems. This addition to our product line is ideally positioned for our Aerus cloud service offerings. Aerus has successfully completed trials and is into implementation with a number of carrier and Vertical Service Integrators (VSI) partners. Several additional partners are into new trials of a number of Aerus services including Aerus Invite, which provides users with a Virtual Meeting Room (VMR) that allows any number of video callers from different video sources to call into a personal meeting room. This service is being trialed by several carriers and it is expected they will be introducing services around this and the other Aerus capabilities such as recording, streaming and mobile over the next few months."
