Concurrent Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Results

Aug 25, 2015, 16:01 ET from Concurrent

ATLANTA, Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global provider of high-performance Linux® and storage solutions, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2015.

"During fiscal 2015, the company made good progress on several new initiatives related to our core Linux and storage technologies that are designed to generate growth and diversify our customer and revenue mix," said Derek Elder, CEO of Concurrent. "While we won several new projects and expanded our customer lis­t, our fourth quarter results were impacted by consolidation activities in the video service provider market which caused delays in customer orders. We are disappointed with the results; however we believe that we are well positioned for the future given our strong relationships with these customers.  While we expect delays will continue to have an impact through the rest of the calendar year, we believe market conditions will improve as we enter calendar 2016 enabling us to achieve revenue growth in Fiscal 2016 relative to 2015."

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $13.8 million, compared with $17.9 million for the same period in fiscal 2014 and $17.1 million in the preceding quarter.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was 56.5%, compared with 60.0% for the same period in fiscal 2014 and 58.9% in the preceding quarter. Fourth quarter operating expenses were $8.6 million, the same as in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and also in the preceding quarter.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, the company reported an operating loss of $0.8 million, which included non-cash expenses of $0.4 million in depreciation and amortization and $0.3 million in share-based compensation. For the same period in the prior year, the company reported operating income of $2.1 million, which included non-cash expenses of $0.4 million in depreciation and amortization and $0.2 million in share‑based compensation.  The company reported operating income of $1.5 million in the preceding quarter of fiscal 2015, which included non-cash expenses of $0.5 million in depreciation and amortization and $0.2 million in share-based compensation.

The company reported a net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.10 loss per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared with net income of $15.6 million, or $1.71 income per diluted share, in the same period in fiscal 2014, and a net income of $0.8 million, or $0.09 income per diluted share, in the preceding quarter. The fourth quarter fiscal 2014 results included a $13.7 million non-cash gain associated with the reversal of a portion of the company's U.S. tax valuation allowance.

Fiscal 2015 Financial Highlights For fiscal 2015, revenue totaled $64.5 million, compared with $71.2 million for fiscal 2014.  Consolidated gross margin for the year was 56.5%, compared with 56.8% for fiscal 2014.  Total operating expenses were $35.4 million for fiscal 2015, compared with total operating expenses of $35.1 million for fiscal 2014.
