Intrinsyc Reports Quarterly Revenue Growth over Prior Quarter

Quarterly revenue increased to US$4.6 million

Vancouver, BC – August 9, 2017 –– Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation (TSX: ITC and OTC: ISYRF) (“Intrinsyc” or the “Company”), a leading provider of solutions for the development of embedded and IoT products, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 ended June 30, 2017.  Revenue was US$4.6 million (CDN$6.2 million) in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 with Adjusted EBITDA of US$84,268 (CDN$113,333), and net loss for the period being US$22,432 (CDN$31,905). Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by a reduction in higher margin engineering services business from one of our largest clients.

“We achieved another strong quarter of sales orders,” stated Tracy Rees, President and Chief Executive Officer, Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation.  “Among these orders was an order valued at $2,990,000 for memory components, which are planned for use in building computing modules for a Global 500 company.  While not contractually obligated at this time, beyond the purchase of these memory components, we expect our client to place future orders for full computing modules that incorporate this memory.  Should this occur as planned the Company would recognize additional revenues in excess of $10,000,000 through early FY 2019 from this client.   It is also important to note that our client selected Intrinsyc to design, develop, and build the next-generation computing module for their products”

“In addition, to the exciting developments with our Global 500 client, Intrinsyc made excellent progress in earning additional design wins, and moving clients from the product development stage into commercial production,” added Mr. Rees.  “The Company increased design and production wins for Open-Q™ computing modules from 39 to 42 and 14 to 18, respectively, during the quarter. Design and production wins are important metrics to track our progress in building our business with scalable repeat revenue.”
