Memex Inc. Receives Over $1 Million in Aggregate Purchase Orders Since Mid-December

Includes $560,000 in New Business Since February 1

Burlington, ON, Canada – March 27, 2018 – Memex Inc. (“Memex” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: OEE), a global leader in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) manufacturing productivity software, is pleased to announce that it has received approximately $560,000 in new purchase orders since February 1, 2018. An aggregate of six existing and four new customers make up these new purchase orders. This builds upon the previously announced $475,000 in purchase orders from mid-December through February 1, 2018, bringing the total purchase orders received since mid-December to over $1 million.

“In less than 100 days, we have generated more than $1 million in new purchase orders,” said MEMEX President and CEO David McPhail. “We’ve noticed an uptick in order flow and prospects due to changes in U.S. tax code, namely the lowering of corporate tax rates, the repeal of the alternative minimum tax, and immediate expensing of certain capital expenditures. As a result, we’re seeing manufacturers take advantage of these reforms to invest in IIoT solutions, and we anticipate follow-on orders to continue.”

In the fourth quarter of 2017, the National Association of Manufacturers Outlook Survey of 14,000 manufacturers found that industry optimism is at a 20-year high. Nearly 63% stated that      business tax reform would encourage their company to increase capital spending, and almost 58% said they would expand their businesses.

Allied Market Research forecasts that the $115 billion IIoT market of 2016 could grow to $197 billion by 2023 with manufacturing maintaining its leading position through the period. IDC sees a $189 billion market for manufacturing IoT with manufacturing operations and production asset management being focus areas.

MEMEX also announces that it has renewed its contract with Sophic Capital for capital markets services for one year. As part of these services, the Company has granted Sophic Capital 500,000 options at a $0.07 strike. The options will vest in equal tranches over a twelve-month period.

Memex Inc. Releases Annual Financial Results

BURLINGTON, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 16, 2018 / Memex Inc. (”Memex” or the ”Company”) (TSX-V: OEE), a global leader in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) manufacturing productivity software, today released its annual financial and operational highlights for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2017. All results are reported in Canadian dollars.

Summary Financial Highlights for the Year Ended September 30, 2017:

  • Memex reported a $3.98 million net and comprehensive loss for the year ended September 30, 2017 on $2.01 million in revenue equating to a $0.034 loss per share. This compares with a $2.81 million net and comprehensive loss on $2.91 million in total revenue for the year ended September 30, 2016, and a $0.028 loss per share;
  • Bookingsi for the year totalled $2.37 million versus $3.42 million a year ago;
  • Backlogii at September 30, 2017 was $1.31 million, up $464 thousand from $848 thousand a year ago;
  • Gross margin percentage for the fiscal year was 55.4%, down from the 66.2% last year;
  • Cash consumed from operating activities (before changes in working capital balances) was $3.69 million for the year, up $969 thousand from $2.72 million a year ago; and
  • The Company had $2.79 million in working capital including $3.46 million in cash at year end, relative to $3.11 million in working capital and $2.90 million in cash at the end of fiscal 2016.

Management Commentary:

”Fiscal 2017 was a challenging year for Memex,” said President and CEO David McPhail. ”Uncertainty surrounding the tax policy during the U.S. election extended well into mid-2017 for our targeted customers. Our sales ramp through the back half of 2017 was slower than anticipated. Although I am disappointed with our results, we continue to get positive feedback from our customers around MERLIN’s value proposition and feature set. As the largest shareholder, I remain confident in the positioning of our product, the significant funnel of interested customers and can assure you we are working to turn around our financial performance in 2018. I would like to thank our loyal shareholder base over the last year as we worked through the more challenging than anticipated market conditions.”

2017 Fiscal Year End Operational Highlights:

  • The Company successfully closed an equity financing for more than $2.85 million in (gross) proceeds through the sale of 17.8 million units at $0.16 (a share and half warrant) on September 26, 2017;
  • In Q3 the Company secured its largest ever single-customer project, SEW Eurodrive, worth more than $450 thousand dollars for a plant-wide MERLIN implementation at one of this customer’s locations; and
  • The Company restructured its sales management and delivery procedures during the year, including hiring a VP of Sales and the adoption of SalesForce to better mine Memex’s existing U.S. Pipeline, develop new markets and growth opportunities and to better monitor the Company’s sales development activities.

Summary Financial Highlights for the Fourth Quarter Ended September 30, 2017:

  • Memex reported revenue of $626 thousand, 22% lower than the same quarter a year ago;
  • Gross margin of 66.4% was down from 71.9% reported the same quarter a year ago;
  • Bookings[i] for the quarter were $364 thousand (net of a $129 thousand lost order), down 55% from the same quarter a year ago; and
  • Memex reported a net and comprehensive loss of $881 thousand for the quarter, equating to a $0.008 loss per share. This compares with a $726 thousand net and comprehensive loss in Q4 last year, and a $0.007 loss per share.
