Intrapower posts revenue drop

But earnings and cash flow increase for cloud provider

Communications and technology company, Intrapower Limited (ASX: IPX), has posted a slight revenue drop from $29.4 million last year to $25.1 million for the financial year ended June 30, as a result of less interest revenue.

According to an ASX statement, the company's earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose 7.1 per cent to $1.45 million from the previous $1.36 million.

Net profit after tax increased to $281,000 from a $3.96 million loss in 2009 when its result was affected by an impairment charge of $4.56 million. Operating efficiencies also drove costs down from 9.31 million to $7.85 million.

Cash flow also increased from $1.39 million last year to $2.26 million.

In a company statement to the ASX, Intrapower said that, due to consolidation in the voice and data industry, it had changed direction to focus on its cloud computing platform, Business On Demand, and opportunities in the small to medium business sector.

The company recently signed a [[artnid: 350464|five year $16 million deal with Wilson HTM Investment Group| Wilson HTM to float on the cloud |new]]. Intrapower migrated the company’s IT infrastructure to Business On Demand.

“Business On Demand has increased year on year, growing from 12 per cent of revenues in 2009 to 19 per cent of revenues. We expect this number will increase to approximately 35 per cent for the 2011 financial year,” said the statement.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
