For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $34.470 million compared to $31.252 million a year ago. Profit from operations was $0.858 million compared to $5.029 million a year ago. Net profit attributable to the company's shareholders was $0.145 million or $0.00 per basic and diluted share compared to $5.621 million or $0.16 per basic and diluted share a year ago.

Net cash generated from operating activities was $13.1 million compared to $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The primary source of cash from operating activities was collections from its customers received through its independent sales representative organizations. Profit before income tax was $1,238,000 against $5,303,000 a year ago. The growth in revenue was resulted mainly from its new SIMM machinery shows that the company held in March 2014 off-set partially by the move of its International IC China Conferences and Exhibitions in Shenzhen, China to third quarter of 2014 from first quarter of 2013 and a 15% decline in its online and other media services revenue. Total profit from operations declined mainly as there is no profit on sale of property during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and due to increases in event production costs and general and administrative costs, off-set partially by increase in revenue and declines in sales costs, community and content costs and information and technology costs. For the second quarter ending June 30, 2014, the company expects revenue to be in the range of $88 to $90 million, representing a decrease of 3% to 5%, as compared to $92.7 million for the first half of 2013. IFRS EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.14 to $0.18. Non-IFRS diluted net income per share is expected to be in the range of $0.18 to $0.22.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $12.6 million and $13.8 million, as compared to $16.3 million in the first half of 2013.
