Emtec, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results
Springfield, NJ. – Emtec, Inc. (OTCQB: ETEC) (“Emtec” or the “Company”) announced today that for the quarter ended February 28, 2013, its Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined by management as net earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, retention bonuses, stock-based compensation, severance, earn out liability adjustment, stock warrant expense, restructuring charge, impairment of identifiable intangible assets and impairment of goodwill (“Adjusted EBITDA”) increased by $102,000 to $110,000 compared to the second fiscal quarter of last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended February 28, 2013 was relatively consistent with the same period in 2012. A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is attached to this press release.
Total revenue for the quarter ended February 28, 2013 decreased by $5.9 million or 12.3% compared to the quarter ended February 28, 2012. Consulting and outsourcing gross profit for the six months ended February 28, 2013 increased by $581,000 or 5.4% versus the six months ended February 29, 2012, which is consistent with the Company’s focus on higher margin consulting and outsourcing revenues.
“We continue to experience weakness in demand for both procurement services and consulting services. Numerous projects were put on hold during the quarter. We have remained focused on finding higher margin business and longer term outsourcing engagements with our clients. Despite the drop we continued to improve our profitability through cautious investing and consolidation of our shared services functions. We have attracted and invested in high level sales and delivery talent and are prepared for a rebound in demand,” commented Dinesh Desai, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.
Greg Chandler, Chief Financial Officer added, “There was some procurement during the quarter where the client ordered and paid for the project but held off on its delivery. Had we been able to record the procurement revenue associated with this order during the quarter, our Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter would have been approximately $340,000 higher. We believe the sequester, the new tax and other laws including the healthcare laws and the mixed economic news have caused numerous clients to delay their technology buying decisions.”
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are key financial metrics used by the Company’s Board of Directors and management to evaluate and measure the Company’s operating performance. These metrics are not in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America “(GAAP”). Management’s calculation of EBITDA eliminates the effect of charges primarily associated with financing decisions, tax regulations and capital investments. Adjusted EBITDA also eliminates certain unusual costs and reflects certain changes in the business made by management and includes adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to reflect the underlying ongoing operations of the business. Net loss is the most comparable GAAP measure of the Company’s operating results presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. The Company has made a reconciliation of net loss, the most closely comparable GAAP measure, to these non-GAAP measures for the quarters and six months ended February 28, 2013 and February 29, 2012, and discussed these adjustments in this release. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or any other GAAP measure of performance or liquidity, and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Management believes that the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is important to investors because Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate financial performance and continuing operations and to determine resource allocation for each of our business segments.
