Commenting on the third quarter, Randall K. Fields, Park City Group’s Chairman and CEO said, “We substantially completed our scaling initiatives in Q3 and are very pleased with the additional capacity gained from our work. As a result, we are ready to accelerate the pace of growth in our subscription revenue and address the current and growing pipeline of new business. We expect our fourth quarter to mark an inflection point in our growth, as we are on pace to make 75 to 100 supplier connections primarily associated with the previously announced implementation of our first Mega Hub retail customer. This represents a pace that is three to four times faster than we have ever achieved. Even more impactful to our bottom line, our new highly-automated processes will support the next stage of growth of the Company without the need for significant additional fixed costs.”
Subscription revenue increased 11% year over year to $1.7 million during the third quarter ended Mar. 31, 2011. “Growth in subscription revenue continues to meet our expectations and reflects our disciplined approach to grow at a pace that will allow us to deliver superior customer service,” said Mr. Fields.
While subscription revenue increased during the fiscal third quarter, total revenue decreased 16% primarily as the result of a one-time license sale of patents during the prior year. Total operating expenses during the quarter remained flat year over year at $2.7 million. “Due to customer demand, our model continues to shift toward subscription revenue. Unlike our historical license and maintenance model, which can see significant fluctuations in quarterly revenue, a subscription model provides regular recurring revenue and great visibility into future revenue and earnings,” said David Colbert, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer.
“It is absolutely critical to our long-term success that we continue to deliver high levels of customer service while we ramp the pace of our growth. Thus far in the fourth quarter, our team has contracted or completed 25 supplier connections with outstanding execution. We continue to build and strengthen our account management team, which will assist in our efforts to scale our business and deliver world-class service to our customers. We have built a business model with tremendous operating leverage which we expect to produce 75% contribution margin on incremental revenue. As our top line accelerates, our bottom line should grow even faster,” concluded Mr. Fields.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes the following financial measures defined as “non-GAAP financial measures” by the Securities and Exchange Commission: non-GAAP EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) to common shareholders, non-GAAP earnings per share and free cash flow. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures are included in the following tables.
Non-GAAP EBITDA excludes items such as impairment charges, allowance for doubtful accounts, charges to consolidate and integrate recently acquired businesses, costs of closing corporate facilities, non-cash stock based compensation and other one-time cash and non-cash charges. Non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) applicable to common shareholders excludes items such as non-cash stock based compensation, charges to consolidate and integrate recently acquired businesses, costs for closing corporate facilities, amortization of acquired intangible assets and other one-time cash and non-cash charges. Free cash flow includes net cash provided (used) by operating activities less purchase of property and equipment and capitalization of software costs. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses or net purchases of property and equipment, as the case may be, which may not be indicative of its core operation results and business outlook. In addition, because Park City Group has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company’s financial reporting.
