Operating Results

Gross revenues for the first quarter were $836,432 compared to $485,385 for the prior year quarter, which is an increase of 72% percent over last year. Most of the increase is attributed to increased activity in the Asia-Pacific region and new product sales. Gross margins were $244,194 or 29% vs 55% for the prior year quarter.  Margins in 2015 were unusually high as IDC sold several parts with low inventory costs due to previous write-downs.


Operating costs (sales and marketing, general and administrative, production and manufacturing, and research and development) were up by 150 percent to $1,242,570 from $476,441 as compared to the prior year. The increase reflects the investment in people and is directly attributed to establishing operations in Calgary, Shanghai, and Beijing. Included in this total is research and development costs which increased by 571%.  The Company is focusing on building and investing in its new strategic direction to address its goals of achieving further product development, diversification and operating efficiencies to build on its global brand recognition.


Financing costs increased to $213,191 from $14,794 in the prior period due to IDC`s commitments arising from the convertible debentures.


For the reasons mentioned above, the net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $1,295,582 compared to a net loss of $288,968 for the same period of 2015.
