Q&A with International Dispensing Corp (IDC) CEO Greg Abbott

The following is a Q & A with International Dispensing Corporation (IDND) CEO, Greg Abbott.

1) According to your latest Quarterly report (9/30/10), the original vision for IDC was to create and market a cost-effective dispensing system that could keep liquid contents fresh and uncontaminated through the entire dispensing cycle without refrigeration or preservatives. However now, because the company has widened its scope over the entire supply chain, your have added, “innovative, cost effective dispensing solutions in an environmentally responsible manner.” How has your dispensing solution become more environmentally responsible? Are you still keeping liquids fresh and uncontaminated through the entire dispensing cycle?

The Answer(R) tap, our core product, keeps liquids shelf-stable even after dispensing has commenced – that hasn’t changed. As for being environmentally sustainable, a couple of years ago IDC commissioned a company called Allied Development to conduct an independent life cycle analysis of a bag-in-box package with The Answer(R) versus PET bottles, milk jugs, and aseptic cartons. The study took all supply chain factors into account, from resins, to filling, to shipping of the finished product. The results showed that the bag-in-box package with The Answer(R) (Multiserve Safepak) utilized significantly less energy and greenhouse gases through all the production cycles, and took up significantly less landfill, than the other packaging formats. Also, given the fact that over half of the world’s food supply spoils or is thrown away, The Answer(R) keeps product shelf-stable and ensures 99%+ evacuation. We may have changed our mission statement a bit to be more encompassing of what we are accomplishing, but our core mission has never wavered.

Destiny Media Announces Record Results for Q1

VANCOUVER, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Destiny Media Technologies (OTCBB: DSNY) is pleased to announce results for the quarter and period ending November 30th, 2010. Revenues of $1,056,638 are the highest in the company’s history and reflect an increase of 17% over the previous quarter and 1% over the same quarter in the prior year. International revenues grew 23% over the prior year, expressed in USD, despite an 8% decline in the Euro. North American revenues declined 7% reflecting lower paid transaction volumes by two of the four major labels.

Net income of $72,680 declined from $322,680 in the prior quarter, as a result of a 27% increase in operating expenditures. The majority of this increase was associated with non-recurring costs associated with a new TSX stock exchange listing, an increase in legal fees because of a trial which occurred during the quarter, and unfavorable exchange fluctuations.

Company CFO, Fred Vandenberg comments “In 2011 we expect to capitalize on the investments we made in 2010 which include the integration of our patent pending watermarking technology into the industry’s anti piracy web crawler and the ongoing development of the ability to deliver music directly into RCS’s global network of radio scheduling systems, first announced in December 2009. We have observed continual growth in Play MPE® revenue over the past 4 years and believe we can continue this trend in the immediate future.”
