Edmonton, Alberta, July 23, 2013 – Titan Logix Corp., (TSX Venture: TLA) ("Titan" or the "Company"), an advanced technology industrial instrumentation and controls company today reported its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of its fiscal 2013, ended May 31, 2013.
In the third quarter of fiscal 2013 Titan Logix Corp. experienced an increase in revenue and net earnings as compared to the previous two quarters of this fiscal year, though this was a decrease from the third quarter of fiscal 2012. EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased compared to the previous year primarily due to decreased sales and additional expenditures incurred to support upcoming new burner management products. New tanker construction in Titan‟s primary market (oil industry tankers) has decreased from the peak levels of the previous fiscal year. In spite of this decrease in market activity the Company has sustained year to date sales and increased EBITDA compared to fiscal 2012.

Titan's sales outside of Canada, primarily to the U.S., were $2,452,116 in this third quarter of fiscal 2013, a decrease of 12% from sales of $2,782,586 in the third quarter ended May 31, 2012. This decrease is primarily a result of new tanker construction in our primary market decreasing from the peak levels of the previous fiscal year. Sales to the U.S. were 54% of Titan‟s total revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 comparable to 54% in the same period of 2012. Sales in Canada for the quarter ended May 31, 2013 decreased by 11% to $2,124,353 from sales of $2,394,791 in the comparable period of fiscal 2012. Reduced drilling activity during spring break up and a reduction in new tanker construction had an adverse impact on Canadian sales.
Total expenses for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were $3,357,206 compared to $3,194,855 in the same period a year ago. General and administration expenses were $1,736,345, compared to $1,556,558 recorded in the same period of the previous fiscal year. Engineering expense, net of product development costs, was $413,053 compared to $564,296. During the nine months ended May 31, 2013, Titan recorded an increase to capitalized product development costs of $717,079 compared to $179,770 in the nine months of the previous fiscal year. This increase is a result of additional resources being allocated to new product development as Titan focuses on the completion and launch of new products. Marketing and sales expense increased from $1,160,860 in the previous fiscal year‟s first nine months to $1,263,278 for the first nine months of fiscal 2013.
At May 31, 2013 cash and cash equivalents and short term investments were $8,876,963 compared to $5,760,318 at the end of fiscal 2012. Titan does not have any debt except for trade and accrued payables.
Titan continues to invest in U.S. market expansion plans where increased growth is attainable and explore opportunities to sell its products beyond North America. Short term growth for fiscal 2013 has been constrained by a reduction in market activity, primarily in Canada. Therefore, while new product development presents long term opportunities for 2014 and beyond, Titan expects to see a decrease in revenue for the fourth quarter compared with the peak levels of 2012.
Titan reports that it is progressing on the development and deployment of its complete „In the Field, On the Road, In the Office‟ solutions for various markets and applications. The Rack Control Module (RCM) was launched, which enables TD80 customers to load at loading racks, thereby expanding the use and market reach of the TD80 solution. The Company is completing the development of the next Stik products for new markets. Titan is in the final stages of testing and field trials for these products.
