Intrinsyc Reports 2012 Third Quarter Financial Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Intrinsyc Software International, Inc. (TSX:ICS) ("Intrinsyc" or the "Company"), developer of intelligent connected devices, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, reported in United States dollars and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The Company's results are presented in comparison to the three months ended June 30, 2012 and the three months ended September 30, 2011, also in accordance with IFRS.

Intrinsyc achieved revenue of approximately $1.6 million in the third quarter, 24% lower than in the previous quarter, with lower operating expenses. The Company reported negative EBITDA(1) of $94,356 and a Net Loss of $227,936.

"Revenue was lower in the quarter corresponding with a reduction in engineering capacity and decline from navigation software," stated Tracy Rees, President and Chief Executive Officer of Intrinsyc. "We are addressing our declining revenue through the development of new products that can provide recurring revenue, including the recently announced DragonBoard(TM) Development Kit and production ready Open-Q(TM) System on Module. These products complement our engineering services business and offer broader customer opportunities."

(1) Non-IFRS measure that does not have a standardized meaning and may not be comparable to a similar measure disclosed by other issuers. This measure does not have a comparable IFRS measure. EBITDA referenced here relates to operating loss less other operating expenses. Please refer to the reconciliation of EBITDA to reported financial results attached to this press release.
