in FY 2011. Net earnings for 2012 decreased 7% to $1,032,218 compared

and Analysis was $1,204,000 in FY 2012, compared to $1,387,000 in FY
“The Company had a successful year in terms of sales growth and new
product development. Net income and EBITDA were down because of
increased investment in product development and marketing and the loss
of two large customers in Q4 due to cost cutting measures in these
firms. One or two acquisitions were a key part of the 2012 growth
strategy and while no deals were completed to impact 2012 we have just
announced on April 2, 2013 the acquisition of a division of Navex
Global “, said Michael Gaffney, Chief Executive Officer.
Gross margins decreased to 49% in 2012 compared to 51% in 2011 due to
the assumed overheads associated with the Service Intelligence business
combination, as the final integration of SI took longer than expected.
The company expects gross margins to increase and return to historical
levels in 2013 as Service Intelligence customers have been fully
transferred onto In-Touch systems.
