IRVINE, Calif. and LONDON, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Endeavors Technologies, the pioneer in application streaming and virtualization technology, and its parent company, Tadpole Technology plc, today announced results for the year ended 30 September 2007.
Operating revenue from the Company's application streaming activities known as Endeavors Technologies ("continuing operations") increased by 56% to 3.3 million pounds Sterling from 2.1 million pounds Sterling whilst operating profit before non-cash charges was 27,000 pounds Sterling as opposed to an operating loss of 1.3 million pounds Sterling in the previous year.
Taking non-cash charges in to account, the Company's operating results from continuing operations improved significantly, recording a small loss of 0.3 million pounds Sterling compared to last year's loss of 6.7 million pounds Sterling.
"The trading performance of our core activities ("Endeavors Technologies") improved dramatically during 2007 as a new management team became effective and new licensing agreements were signed," commented David Lee, Tadpole Technology Chairman. "With the disposal of our Geospatial business activities, we are now demonstrably focused on exploiting our technological advantages in the application virtualization marketplace."
Revenues from the discontinued geospatial operations ("discontinued operations") declined significantly from 7.9m pounds Sterling to 4.5m pounds Sterling and profitability declined from 0.7m pounds Sterling to 0.5m pounds Sterling. The disposal of the Geospatial Division to ESRI(UK) Limited was concluded in November 2007.
David Lee added, "We will complete our transformation to a single, pure focus business during the first quarter of 2008, with the proposed name change to Endeavors plc. At the same time, we plan to offer our shareholders the opportunity to participate in a fundraising, to be announced in February for completion in March, in order to maintain existing operations and to provide working capital to further develop the business."
