TSS, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ TSS, Inc. (Other OTC: TSSI), a mission critical data center and technology services company, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Anthony Angelini, President & Chief Executive Officer of TSS, stated, "We continue to be excited about our market positioning and growth opportunities as a leading provider of infrastructure services to traditional and modular data center companies despite lower than expected activity in the third quarter. In particular, we experienced a slow quarter in our newly acquired systems integration business but we are seeing an increasing ramp of business in the fourth quarter and solid prospects for 2014. In the third quarter, we consolidated some internal functions and facilities that resulted in additional costs but will improve fixed operating costs going forward. In addition, we are further developing our technology platform which will enable us to scale more efficiently while continuing to provide superior customer service."

Angelini continued, "The data center industry continues to provide growth opportunities. We see tremendous interest in our core offerings of facilities management and system integration and we are focused in the near-term on sales and business development execution to accelerate growth. Overall, demand for storage and compute continues to grow and the broadening adoption of new technologies, including modular data centers, has created customer needs we are well positioned to serve."

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue of $10.3 million, compared with $9.3 million in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Gross profit of $2.2 million, compared with $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Normalized Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.3 million, compared with Normalized Adjusted EBITDA of $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, compared with net loss of $0.3 million or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012.

Maura McNerney, Chief Financial Officer of TSS, stated, "Revenues were up $1 million while gross profit was lower compared to the third quarter of 2012 due to a lower volume of product deployments. Both revenue and gross profit improved sequentially compared to the second quarter of 2013. The benefits of our lower cost structure, that Anthony mentioned earlier, will be more visible as we enter 2014. Our balance sheet at the end of the third quarter reflected the working capital investment we made in our systems integration business and a customer project that resulted in an inventory increase of $900 thousand. The related product was sold in October and our inventory level is now consistent with our second quarter ending inventory. Further, our accounts receivable level increased primarily due to the building and transition of receivables in our acquired business. Going forward, we expect days sales outstanding to be reduced by ten to fifteen days. Lower inventory levels and reduced days sales outstanding should contribute to improved year-end liquidity. Availability on our line of credit was $2.1 million at the end of September."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures not defined under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment loss on goodwill and other intangibles, stock-based compensation, and provision for bad debts. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe this supplemental measure of operating performance is helpful in comparing our operating results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding non-cash items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our results of operations in any particular period. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of certain management personnel when determining incentive compensation.

We define Normalized Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted EBITDA before restructuring charges, certain other non-recurring costs and acquisition expenses. We present Normalized Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is helpful in comparing our operating results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding from Adjusted EBITDA certain non-recurring items that do not directly correlate to our business and may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our performance during a particular period. Similar to Adjusted EBITDA, we also use Normalized Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of certain management personnel when determining incentive compensation.

Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA, while providing useful information, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or cash flows as determined under GAAP. Consistent with Regulation G under the U.S. federal securities laws, Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure, and this reconciliation is located under the heading "Normalized Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation" following the Consolidated Statements of Operations included in this press release.
