ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Vuzix Corporation (TSX-V: VZX, OTC:BB: 
VUZI, FMB: V7X) ("Vuzix" or, the "Company") a leader in the design and 
manufacture of Video Eyewear products that provide users with portable high 
quality viewing experiences, today reported its financial results for the 
three and nine month periods ending September 30, 2012. Unless otherwise 
indicated, dollar amounts referred to herein are references to United States 
dollars.

On June 15, 2012, Vuzix sold its Tactical Display Group business ("TDG"). As 
such, the financial results of those operations have been classified and 
presented as Discontinued Operations and have been excluded from the Company's 
financial results from Continuing Operations for the periods being reported. 
For the three month period ended September 30, 2012, gross sales from 
continuing operations amounted to $756,495 versus $1,241,134 during the 
corresponding period in 2011. The 39 percent decrease in sales was primarily 
attributable to the Company's limited working capital preceding the TDG sale 
and the resulting supply chain delays for components to build product to match 
sales demand, particularly on the newer product lines in our third quarter. 
Due to the Company's sale of its TDG business unit, and ongoing efforts and 
focus on managing costs, operating expenses from continuing operations during 
the third quarter of 2012 decreased by 18 percent to $1,181,107, compared to 
$1,447,288 during the same period last year. As a result, net loss from 
continuing operations during the third was $1,116,023 versus $1,320,758 during 
the third quarter of 2011. 
For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, gross sales from 
continuing operations amounted to $2,517,222 versus $2,917,829 during the 
corresponding period in 2011. Operating expenses for continuing operations 
decreased 16% to $3,676,916, from $4,384,066 during the nine month period, 
leading to a net loss of $3,351,090 versus a loss of $4,099,630 during the 
nine month period in 2011. 
Net Loss inclusive of Discontinued Operations for the third quarter of 2012 
was $1,181,079 versus $920,553 in the same period in 2011. For the nine-month 
period ending September 30, 2012 the Company reported Net Income inclusive of 
Discontinued Operations of $1,738,937 versus a Net Loss of $2,268,399 in the 
same period in 2011. Included in Net Income for the nine months ending 
September 30, 2012 was a Net Gain on Sale of Discontinued Operations of 
$5,837,607. 
"The transition from our defense activities to the commercial side of our 
business has taken us some time but we are seeing great signs of success and 
are very excited with the growth opportunity ahead of us," noted Paul Travers, 
President of Vuzix. "I am pleased with our ability to manage overall costs and 
improve gross margin which should allow for stronger bottom line performance 
once we ramp up sales of our new products. We are excited about the growth 
prospects of our business and will continue to be very visible and a major 
contender in the smartphone accessory market."
