OTTAWA, Aug. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - Magor Corporation (TSX-V:MCC), a global leader in visual collaboration solutions, today announced fourth quarter (Q4) financial results for the three and twelve-month period ended April 30, 2014.
"The Company encountered delays in closing on certain large contracts we have been working on, that resulted in lower than expected revenues in the quarter. However, with the solid and growing pipeline of opportunities we have in place, we are very confident about the new fiscal year of our Company," said Mike Pascoe, President and CEO of Magor Corporation. "During the quarter, we secured a number of partnerships to strengthen our competitive position in the U.S. market, as we see increasing demand for video collaboration solutions across a number of verticals, including government, oil and gas, and law enforcement. We have also commenced earning recurring revenue from our Aerus cloud-based services, an area which we expect will drive significant continued growth in future quarters. The Company is focused on building the recurring revenues through long-term subscription contracts with its customers."
- During the quarter, the Company announced two key developments to the Aerus Service Delivery Platform (SDP) which provides greater reach and service options to the end users: (i) support for the desktop visual collaboration client for Windows operating system; and (ii) new Aerus OnDemand services that provide personalized virtual meeting rooms and WebRTC-based webinar-style collaboration services.
