Homeland Security Capital Corporation Announces Third Quarter Results

Homeland Security Capital Corporation (“HSCC”) (OTCBB:HOMS), an international provider of specialized technology-based radiological, nuclear, environmental, disaster relief, and security solutions to government and commercial customers, filed its quarterly report on Form 10Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

The Company reported revenue for the third quarter ended March 31, 2009 of $19.1 million and a net operating loss of ($1.8) million. Adjusted EBITDAS for the third quarter was a loss of approximately ($.3) million. The Company defines adjusted EBITDAS as income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and non-cash compensation. This is a measurement of how the Company views its operational effectiveness and the overall performance to its annual plan.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2009, the Company recorded revenue of $58.9 million and a consolidated net operating loss of ($4.1) million. For the nine months, the Company’s EBITDA was approximately $1.1 million.

The Company consolidates the results of subsidiaries Safety and Ecology Corporation, Nexus Technologies Group, Inc., Polimatrix, Inc. and Homeland Security Capital Corporation, the holding company. At March 31, 2009, there were 46.4 million shares of common stock outstanding.

HSCC Chairman and CEO C. Thomas McMillen said, “We continue to meet our revenue projections and have continued to keep our expense levels in check. Unfortunately our margins eroded a bit this quarter, mostly attributable to weather and slower than expected start up on some projects.” McMillen continued, “We remain very optimistic concerning our efforts in contracting new business based on government stimulus funding over the next several months.”

HSCC President and Safety and Ecology Corporation CEO Christopher Leichtweis commented, “We are aggressively promoting our contracting vehicles to our government customers. We are in an excellent position with these contracts to start shovel ready projects in the near term.”

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
