Medipattern Reports Highlights and Results for Q1 2013

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/12 --

Attention: Business/Financial Editors

The Medipattern Corporation ("Medipattern" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MKI), is pleased to report first quarter highlights and results of operations from the Company's 2013 financial year, to September 30, 2012.

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE QUARTER:


--  Increased Visualize: Vascular(TM) customer base to a total of 46
    customers which provide services in a combined total of 272 sites. 
    
--  Processed 1,243 cases in the quarter. 
    
--  Completed the acquisition of Mytrak Health Systems Inc.'s Mobile
    Technology Business Unit ("mHealth division") in conjunction with a $1.8
    million financing. 

"The customer base for our vascular product line continues to grow. We are refining the installation and training to streamline our start up process for Visualize: Vascular(TM) customers. We have implemented a cloud based system for delivery of medical images and reports for our customers so we can begin to scale the solution as we anticipate increased scanning volume. This new delivery system will enable our customers to begin to increase their volumes as we transition many of them from pre-revenue test scanning to contracted primary workload cases," stated Jeff Collins, CEO of The Medipattern Corporation. "The company also introduced its wearable mobile health device, SMARTCOACH(TM), into its Visualize: Vascular(TM) customer base. The medical community appreciates the device's ability to highlight heart activity and monitor the intensity of physical activity. Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology is utilizing SMARTCOACH(TM) as a method to encourage all 600 of their employees to meet their individual wellness goals, emphasizing that the entire organization benefits when the team is in good health."

"A new case study shows that Visualize: Vascular(TM) improved the Physician's ability to better identify those patients at risk to stroke," Collins stated. "The paper was presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, a division of the American College of Radiology. The paper shows that Visualize's 3D rendering results have a greater than 99% correlation to Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA). Each case was run with the standard of care: Carotid Ultrasound and MRA, and then with Visualize. Angiography is the gold standard for determining vascular integrity. The study shows that the standard of care Carotid Ultrasound only agreed with MRA 75% of the time. Using Visualize's 3D with Carotid Ultrasound improved diagnostic accuracy to the same level as angiography, bringing the accuracy of angiography to ultrasound. Clinical results continue to strongly substantiate the benefits of our vascular product line."

Collins continues, "Medipattern is positioned well to continue growing its vascular product line and increase delivery of its mHealth division products through this channel."

Financial Highlights for Q1 Fiscal 2013:


--  Revenue totaled $100,743 for the three month period ended September 30,
    2012 (Q1 Fiscal 2013) versus $6,504 for Q1 Fiscal 2012. Of the $94,239
    increase, device and accessories sales from the new mHealth division
    accounted for $76,399, subscription fees for Visualize: Vascular(TM), B-
    CAD-FOR-LIFE(TM) and SMARTCOACH(TM) accounted for $14,344 and $10,000
    from the sale of B-CAD(r) licenses. Throughout Q1 2013 the Company
    continued to focus its core R&D resources and marketing expertise on
    meeting its iaHealth division deadlines for final commercialization of
    its Visualize: Vascular(TM) software, while improving the customer user
    experience and device interface on its mHealth division technology
    platform. As a consequence, no licensing or professional fees were
    earned in the quarter (Q1 2012 - $nil); 
    
--  Non-interest operating expenses in Q1 Fiscal 2013 totaled $1,291,287
    versus $581,029 for Q1 Fiscal 2012, an overall increase of 122%. Of the
    $710,258 increase, $403,492 was attributable to the addition of the new
    mHealth division, while related acquisition costs, increased patent fees
    and higher share-based compensation accounted for the balance of the
    increased expenses. The Company remains committed to controlling all
    discretionary non-interest spending until operating cash flow improves
    and new financing is arranged; 
    
--  Total interest expense (including accreted interest on Convertible Debt)
    for Q1 Fiscal 2013 increased 68% to $201,279 (Q1 2012 - $120,097) as a
    result of the commencement of 8% interest due on certain Convertible
    Notes starting on January 1, 2012; 
    
--  In Q1 Fiscal 2013 the Company also recorded 2 significant non-cash
    items; one, a fair value gain on embedded conversion options in its 2010
    Convertible Notes of $619,765 (Q1 - 2012 - $39,287) and two, a goodwill
    impairment provision on its recently acquired mHealth division of
    $1,764,584; 
    
--  Resulting net loss for Q1 Fiscal 2013 was $2,549,663 ($0.03 per share)
    versus $653,096 ($0.01 per share) for Q1 fiscal 2012; 
    
--  As at September 30, 2012, cash totaled $238,733 (June 30, 2012 -
    $348,732), current assets, including short-term investments of $272,689
    (June 30, 2012 - $271,665), were $1,549,431 (June 30, 2012 - $870,989)
    and current liabilities were $1,050,475 (June 30, 2012 - $355,636).
    Working capital at September 30, 2012 totaled $498,956 (June 30, 2012 -
    $515,353), total assets totaled $3,108,838 (June 30, 2012 - $922,373)
    and total liabilities were $6,814,934 (June 30, 2012 - $6,652,560).

Subsequent to September 30, 2012


--  The Company initiated significant cost reduction initiatives to minimize
    monthly cash expenses and allow available financial resources to focus
    specifically on revenue generation. Included in these cash containment
    measures is senior management's (including its NEO's) agreement to
    receive no or reduced salaries until sufficient new liquidity is
    achieved through either new capital financing or enhanced revenue
    generation. 
    
--  November 7, 2012, the Company announced it had arranged a term debt
    facility ('Facility") to provide up to $1,000,000 of working capital.
    The Facility calls for advances to be made monthly to the Company,
    initially for $100,000. The Notes will expire on June 30, 2013, and will
    bear interest at 6% per annum. The Notes will be secured by a general
    security agreement over all the assets of the Company, in priority to
    all existing security interests granted by the Company. The closing of
    the Facility and the initial $100,000 advance is subject to completion
    of definitive agreements and TSX Venture Exchange approval. Medipattern
    and its Board have agreed the holders of the Notes have the right to
    appoint up to two representatives as directors of Medipattern's Board.
    To date, this Facility has not closed and no funds have been advanced.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
