Concurrent Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2017 Financial Results

ATLANTA, 2016-11-09 22:01 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent(NASDAQ:CCUR), a global provider of high-performance Linux®and storage solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2016.

“In the first quarter, Concurrent reported revenue of $13.1 million. The results were impacted by the timing of a large order from a Content Delivery customer, which we received shortly after the close of the quarter,” said Derek Elder, President and CEO of Concurrent. “While we had higher expectations in the quarter for our Content Delivery business, we had another strong quarter with our Real-Time customers and made good progress on the development of our Aquari scale-out storage product.”

First Quarter Financial Highlights

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $13.1 million, compared with $17.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and $13.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The first quarter 2016 comparable included $0.5 million from the multi-screen video analytics product line that was sold in September 2015.

Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was 54.8%, compared with 63.4% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and 58.8% for the same period in fiscal 2016.

The company reported a net loss of $(2.9) million, or $(0.32) loss per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, compared with a net loss of $(12.9) million, or $(1.40) loss per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and net income of $3.2 million, or $0.35 income per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The net loss in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was due to the company’s income tax provision, which was comprised almost entirely of non‑cash income tax expense due to the reestablishment of a full valuation allowance on our U.S. net operating losses. Net income during the first quarter of fiscal 2016 included a gain of $4.1 million related to the sale of the company’s multi‑screen video analytics product line.

Adjusted EBITDA was $(2.2) million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and Adjusted EBITDA of $(0.6) million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measurements” below for more information on the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, including a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income.

The company continued to pay a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. At September 30, 2016, Concurrent had working capital of $18.5 million including cash and cash equivalents of $19.3 million. The company has no debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

To supplement the company’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this news release provides information concerning the company’s Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in tables immediately following the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

For purposes of this news release, Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP net income, less interest income and other income (expense), net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, share-based compensation expense and gain on the sale of assets. The company considers Adjusted EBITDA important to understanding its historical results and identifying current and future trends impacting its business. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare the company’s performance to that of prior periods and evaluate the company’s financial and operating results on a consistent basis from period to period. The company also believes this measure, when viewed in combination with the company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends. The adjustments to the company’s GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the company’s underlying operational results, trends and performance. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash flow for management’s discretionary use. We believe that the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors because securities analysts, noteholders and other investors use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess our operating performance across periods on a consistent basis and to evaluate the relative risk of an investment in our securities.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, however, including the following:

· Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;

· Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

· Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;

· Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our tax expense or any cash requirements to pay income taxes; and

· Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations, but may nonetheless have a material impact on our results of operations.

The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to the company’s financial results determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies, including other companies in our industry.
