Company Achieves Positive EBITDA One-Year Ahead of Plan on a Adjusted Pro-forma Basis
PARK CITY, UT – September 24, 2009 – Park City Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PCYG), a developer of patented, innovative retail supply chain solutions and services, today announced its financial results for the year ended June 30, 2009.
- Total revenue of $5.9 million for the year ended June 30, 2009, representing growth of 78%;
- Adjusted pro-forma EBITDA increased to approximately $357,000 for the year ended June 30, 2009, achieving positive EBITDA one-year ahead of plan;
- Adjusted pro-forma EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 of approximately $330,000 exceeded the Company’s previous guidance for adjusted pro-forma EBITDA of between $235,000 and $300,000;
- Company continues to see strong new customer activity, highlighted by the recent signing of its fourth new retailer Hub in calendar 2009.
Park City Group reported total revenue of $5,964,767 for year ended June 30, 2009, compared with $3,344,973 for the year ended June 30, 2008. The increase is principally due to the acquisition of Prescient Applied Intelligence on January 13, 2009, partially offset by a one-time license sale in 2008 which did not recur in 2009.
Operating expenses of $9,337,682 for the year ended June 30, 2009 include a $1,457,383 non-cash charge related to the impairment of certain capitalized software costs acquired in connection with the acquisition of Prescient, as well as $236,117 in non-recurring costs incurred in connection with the consummation of the merger. No further impairment costs are currently anticipated. Operating expenses are anticipated to substantially decline as a percentage of revenue as a result of cost reduction measures initiated in fiscal 2009. The benefits of these cost reduction measures are expected to be more fully realized during the current 2010 fiscal year.
Adjusted pro-forma EBITDA increased to approximately $357,000 for the year ended June 30, 2009 compared with an EBITDA loss of approximately ($60,000) for the year ended 2008, achieving positive EBITDA one year ahead of plan on an adjusted pro-forma basis.
For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company reported adjusted pro-forma EBITDA of approximately $330,000, exceeding its preliminary guidance for adjusted pro-forma EBITDA to be between $235,000 and $300,000.
Including non-recurring costs and charges incurred in connection with the Prescient acquisition, net loss applicable to common shareholders for the year ended June 30, 2009 was $4,727,892, or $(0.48) per common share, compared with a net loss of $3,199,016 for the year ended June 30, 2008, or $(0.35) per common share.
“Fiscal 2009 exceeded our own expectations, with adjusted pro-forma EBITDA well ahead of our financial plan and preliminary guidance” said Randall K. Fields, Park City Group’s Chairman and CEO. “Our strategies are clearly working as evidenced by the recent announcement of our fourth new retailer Hub signing in calendar 2009. As I look forward to 2010, I anticipate a year of greater penetration of our broad suite of services into our existing customer base, the addition of new retailer Hubs and supplier Spokes, operating margin expansion, strong growth in EBITDA and our first year of positive net earnings and EPS.”
EBITDA is calculated as net income before deducting interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes items such as impairment charges, charges to consolidate and integrate recently acquired businesses, costs of closing corporate facilities, non-cash stock based compensation and other non-cash charges. Although EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not measures of actual cash flow because they do not consider changes in assets and liabilities that may impact cash balances, the Company’s management reviews these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the Company’s performance and manage the operations. Additionally, the Company believes they are useful metrics to evaluate operating performance and has therefore included such measures in the reporting of operating results.
The Company will host a conference call at 11:00 A.M. EDT on September 30, 2009 to discuss fiscal year 2009 financial results. Shareholders and other interested parties may participate in the conference call by dialing (888) 679-8018 or (International) (617) 213-4845 and entering Conference ID #40859144.
A replay of the conference call will be accessible until October 30, 2009 by dialing (888) 286-8010 and entering Conference ID # 77464283.
