Recent surge leads to more than $380 Thousand in purchase orders for MEMEX

BURLINGTON, ON–(Marketwired – June 27, 2017) –
Memex Inc. (“MEMEX”) (TSX VENTURE: OEE) announced today that in the past six weeks (ending June 21, 2017) it has received more than $380 thousand of purchase orders. These are an aggregate of net-new orders and follow-on orders from existing customers.

“We believe these stronger recent results are an indication that the U.S. manufacturing technology market is beginning to strengthen, and that MEMEX’s efforts to revitalize its sales process and strategy are proving effective,” said MEMEX president and CEO David McPhail. “Existing customers are seeing significant improvements in the operating efficiency of the machines already connected in real time to the corporate network via MERLIN. These customers are now extending those benefits to the rest of their equipment to maximize both productivity and profits.”

Beyond existing customers expanding their deployments with MERLIN, new customers are also recognizing MEMEX as the vendor of choice with proven solutions that work on industry standards to help them remotely manage and monitor their equipment in real time and gain a better perspective of exactly what is happening on their shop floors.

“We are starting not only to see a recovery in US manufacturing spending, but we also feel more confident in the recent changes at MEMEX, including hiring a new U.S.-based vice president of sales, allowing a key executive to focus on business development and marketing, and reinvigorating the sales force,” said Mr. McPhail. “I believe the recent net-new orders are just the beginning. MEMEX has been working diligently to secure more sales and bring on additional new customers.”

FLYHT Provides Second Quarter 2017 Update

CALGARY, AB
–(Marketwired – June 26, 2017) –
FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd.
(TSX VENTURE: FLY)
(OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) is pleased to announce more than USD $3 million in additional sales contracts and purchase orders during the quarter, bringing the total for the quarter to nearly USD $5 million. The following are the updates to the sales activity during the second quarter of 2017:

  • FLYHT received orders from an existing OEM partner (see release on July 15, 2014) for approximately USD $2.2 million of parts with related license fees for delivery through January 2018.
  • Seven current customers signed contracts for additional Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS™) 228 hardware kits and/or voice and data services. These include two Chinese customers, three customers in Africa, one in North America and one in Mexico. These contracts will total approximately USD $833,000 assuming FLYHT provides services over the full term of the agreements.

In addition to these orders, FLYHT previously announced an AFIRS contract with a new Chinese commercial airline customer for USD $1.9 million in a press release on April 20, 2017.

“Our sales team continues to engage with airlines in our target market and attended a number of globally-recognized conferences this quarter in the United States, China, Europe and Mexico,” remarked FLYHT’s CEO Thomas R. Schmutz. “FLYHT’s sales order backlog for just two of our revenue sources, AFIRS hardware kits and the associated recurring voice and data services, now exceeds $25 million dollars.”

The measure of sales order backlog is comprised of the sales value of prior committed contracts for which neither the AFIRS hardware is installed, nor the voice and data services activated. These signed contracts have been previously announced in various press releases. This sales order backlog value assumes that FLYHT provides hardware and services over the full scope and term of the constituent contracts.

FLYHT was also awarded a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the AFIRS 228 by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for Boeing 737-300/400/500 aircraft. FLYHT holds an industry-significant number of STCs which authorize installation of FLYHT’s products on air transport aircraft, thus enabling sales opportunities for FLYHT. A complete list of STCs can be found on FLYHT’s website (certifications).

MEMEX Restructures Sales Management to Capitalize on U.S. Manufacturing Recovery

BURLINGTON, ON–(Marketwired – June 26, 2017) –
MEMEX Inc. (“MEMEX” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: OEE) today announced management changes to capitalize on the growing number of sales opportunities precipitating from the rebound in U.S. manufacturing.

MEMEX has hired John Artman as the Company’s Vice President of Sales. Mr. Artman will leverage his past senior management sales experience to mine MEMEX’s existing U.S. pipeline and develop new markets and growth opportunities. John Rattray, has transitioned from Vice President of Sales to Senior Vice-President of Business Development and Marketing.

“MEMEX weathered an extended period of business uncertainty stemming from the vague capital cost allowance and NAFTA policies of both U.S. presidential election candidates. Data from the Association of Manufacturing Technology (AMT) now indicates that U.S. manufacturers are comfortable with the new political reality and are investing in capital infrastructure again,” said MEMEX President and CEO David McPhail. “Given this, we felt it was best to refocus our human capital. I’m very pleased that John Rattray has gladly accepted the challenge to lead our marketing team. I’m also delighted that an industry sales veteran like John Artman saw the potential presented by MERLIN TEMPUS to optimize American manufacturing, leading him to join the Company.”

Mr. Artman, who is based in Sellersburg, Indiana, is an electrical engineer who has held senior management and sales positions at numerous U.S.-based automation and manufacturing technology companies. Most recently, he was Vice President of Sales, Business Development and Marketing at Simplimatic Automation. Before that, he held senior positions at Bishop-Wisecarver Group, Jacobs Automation, Bodine Assembly & Test Systems and Wright Industries. Mr. Artman will continue to work from his office in Indiana.

“The value proposition presented by MERLIN TEMPUS surpasses all other industry solutions,” said Mr. Artman. “MEMEX is a growing company, and industry adoption of MERLIN is a testament to the Company’s strong leadership, vision and teams. I am starting to see increased confidence from U.S. manufacturers who seem ready to make purchasing decisions to grow revenues, reduce costs, and increase profitability. I’m convinced that that MEMEX’s MERLIN software platform will become a key component for manufacturers to achieve these goals.”

Mr. Rattray added, “With MEMEX’s growth and the indications of a U.S. manufacturing recovery, it makes sense to expand our sales management into the U.S. Adding John to the team and giving him the responsibility to lead our sales growth allows me to focus more intently on business development, brand development, and marketing.”

Mr. McPhail also noted that these management changes better position the Company to meet the growing demand for Data-Driven Manufacturing solutions — a demand he expects to increase as more manufacturers add new technology and equipment to their facilities. To optimize the performance of the additional machines, McPhail says Data-Driven Manufacturing — the process which automates machine monitoring and management — will be required to ensure the equipment is being used in the most efficient manner possible.


U.S. Manufacturing Recovery

AMT-compiled data indicates that manufacturers are again spending on new equipment. Manufacturing technology orders totalled $324.46 million during the month of April 2017, a 12.3% year-over-year increase from April 2016. From January 1, 2017 through April 30, 2017, orders were up 2.1% compared to the same period in 2016. AMT also found business confidence among U.S. manufacturers was at its highest level in 13 years.
