Intrinsyc Reports Quarterly Revenue Growth of 4% over Prior Year and Net Income of US$86,966 (CDN$115,656)

VANCOUVER, BC—(Marketwired – May 10, 2017) – Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation (TSX: ITC) (OTC: ISYRF) (“Intrinsyc” or the “Company”), a leading provider of solutions for the development of intelligent connected devices, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Intrinsyc achieved annual revenue growth of 4%, net income of US$86,966 (CDN$115,656), and earnings per share of US$0.00 (CDN$0.00), in the three months ended March 31, 2017. Revenue was US$4.5 million (CDN$5.9 million) which was an increase from US$4.3 million (CDN$5.9 million) in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in revenue over the same period in the prior year was due to increased revenue from the sale of hardware products.

“The Company signed several new product development projects and received significant orders for Embedded Computing Hardware during the quarter which led to our highest ever revenue bookings and order backlog at the end of the quarter,” stated Tracy Rees, CEO, Intrinsyc Technologies. “Additionally, we increased design and production wins for Open–Q™ computing modules from 36 to 39 and 11 to 14, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA[1] and net income performance in the first quarter was reduced from the previous quarter due to a combination of a change in revenue mix, as well as investment in sales, marketing, and product development. We are optimistic that our investments in new product development and marketing will lead to additional design and production wins for our embedded computing hardware, which will fuel long–term revenue growth.”
