Digital Power Corporation Reports Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and the Year Ended December 31, 2013

FREMONT, Calif., March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Power Corporation (NYSE Amex: DPW) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013.

Digital Power's revenues for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $8,770,000, an increase of 2% from revenue of $8,589,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. We recorded an operating loss of $317,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to an operating loss of $94,000 for comparable 2012 period.  Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $632,000, an increase of 92%, or $303,000, over the loss of $329,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Gross margin in 2013 was 36%, a decrease from 40% reported in 2012.

Digital Power reported revenues of $2,267,000 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, an increase of 31% from revenue of $1,728,000 in the comparable quarter in 2012. We recorded an operating loss of $173,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to an operating loss of $438,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012. Digital Power reported a net loss of $361,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $415,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the results, President and CEO Amos Kohn stated: "During the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, we generated revenues from the sale of customized product solutions for the military, medical and telecom industries. This was part of our strategy to increase our efforts to provide fully customized power solutions, while continuing to engage with customers who buy our high-end standard and modified-standard product lines. Although our bottom line results were disappointing with respect to 2013, a majority of the increase in our net loss over 2012 was the result of an increase in non-cash related impairment charges associated with our 2011 investment in an affiliated company.  Operating expenses were slightly lower in 2013 versus 2012, but we did experience a decline in gross margins related to product mix and incremental warranty expenses associated with certain foreign contracts."

Mr. Kohn continued: "We expanded our presence in certain market segments, as we were awarded several new fully customized design projects to supply power solutions for defense battlefield uses and scenarios and expanded our medical product capabilities to include patient-contact medical surgical instruments. In addition, we continue to develop and sell power rectifier systems to international naval fleets. We will continue to focus on solution-driven applications for our major vertical markets, including the telecom, medical, military, and industrial market segments. In addition, we plan to expand our capabilities by accelerating our development and release of even more advanced power products."

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.
