Emtec, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2009 Results Services and consulting revenue increased by 171.5%; Earnings per share increased by 33.3%

MARLTON, N.J., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emtec, Inc. (OCT Bulletin Board: ETEC) ("Emtec" or the "Company") announced today that for the year ended August 31, 2009, consolidated operating income increased to $4.1 million, compared to $3.3 million in the prior year. Net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") for the year ended August 31, 2009 increased to $6.4 million from $4.7 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined by management as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, retention bonuses, non-essential overhead, stock based compensation, executive recruiting fees, severance, temporary wage reductions and the recovery of prior year expenses ("Adjusted EBITDA"), increased to $8.3 million in 2009 from $5.0 million in 2008. Net income for the year ended August 31, 2009 increased to $1.7 million, as compared to $1.3 million in the prior year. Earnings per share for the year ended August 31, 2009 increased $0.03 to $0.12 per share from $0.09 per share in the prior year. A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is attached to this press release.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are key financial metrics used by the Company's board of directors and management to evaluate and measure the Company's operating performance on a going forward basis. These metrics are not in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Management's calculation of EBITDA eliminates the effect of charges primarily associated with financing decisions, tax regulations and capital investments. Adjusted EBITDA also eliminates certain non-recurring or unusual costs, reflects certain changes made by management during the year and makes adjustments which in the opinion of management are necessary to reflect the underlying ongoing operations of the business going forward. Net income (loss) is the most comparable GAAP measure of the Company's operating results presented in the Company's consolidated financial statements. We have made a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to net income (loss), the most closely comparable GAAP measure, for the years ended August 31, 2009 and 2008 and discussed these adjustments below. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or any other GAAP measure of performance or liquidity, and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Management believes that the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is important to investors because Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate financial performance and continuing operations and to determine resource allocation for each of our business segments.

Highlights for year ended August 31, 2009

  • Services and consulting revenue increased 171.5% from $20.6 million to $55.8 million
  • Services and consulting revenue increased to 24.9% from 9.7% as a percentage of total revenue
  • Overall gross margin rose to 14.7% from 12.8%
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased to $8.3 million from $5.0 million
  • Long term debt, including the current portion of long term debt, was reduced by $2.4 million

The consolidated financial information for the year ended August 31, 2009 includes the accounts and transactions of KOAN-IT and EMS as of the respective acquisition dates of February 12, 2009 and May 12, 2009. The consolidated financial statement for the years ended August 31, 2009 and 2008 includes the accounts and transactions of Luceo and eBAS/Aveeva as of the respective acquisition dates of March 20, 2008 and August 13, 2008.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Emtec Infrastructure Services ("EIS') division increased $1.6 million to $6.1 million for the year ended August 31, 2009, compared to $4.5 million for the year ended August 31, 2008. This increase in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to increased gross profit from the growth in revenues from services and consulting and decreased selling, general and administrative expenses that resulted from cost-cutting measures we enacted during 2009. Except for retention bonuses all adjustments included in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA set forth in the reconciliation table below were for this division. In addition, the EIS division incurred $238,000 in merger and acquisition expenses versus $296,000 in 2008 which are not included in the adjustments to EBITDA set forth in the reconciliation that appears below.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Emtec Global Services ("EGS") division increased $1.7 million to $2.2 million for the year ended August 31, 2009, compared to $502,000 for the year ended August 31, 2008. This increase in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to comparing a full year of operations in fiscal 2009 to a shorter stub period in the year ended August 31, 2008 and a reduction in selling, general and administrative costs as a percentage of revenue. The EGS adjustment included in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA includes retention bonuses paid during 2009.

Net income on a consolidated basis increased by $397,000 to $1.7 million for the year ended August 31, 2009, compared to $1.3 million for the year ended August 31, 2008.

"In light of the continued economic downturn I am delighted to be able to report this improved annual performance once again," said Dinesh Desai, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Emtec. "Early in the year we took measures to preserve long term value for the Company and eliminate certain excess costs. During the second half of the year we were able to take advantage of our increasingly prominent position in the market to invest in our people and our clients. Our execution in our education market was extremely pleasing as we look to not only improve our stockholder value but to provide technology needs to improve the critically important education sector."

1) Expenses associated with retention bonuses which were agreed to in connection with the closing of the Company's acquisitions of EBAS/Aveeva and Luceo.

2) Elimination of non-essential overhead includes expenses incurred in 2009 which were eliminated by management during the year and will not recur on an ongoing basis. These charges included $149,000 paid to the former owners of Westwood under contracts that were not renewed (net of ongoing consulting costs paid to an owner), $399,000 paid to a senior executive under a contract that was not renewed and paid to other at-will employees whose positions were terminated and $402,000 in sales compensation changes implemented during the year.

3) Reflects executive recruiting fees incurred in connection with a management launched search for a senior executive in 2009. Management made a one-time decision to invest in the business by hiring new senior executives to grow the business in 2010 and thereafter.

4) Due to the uncertain economic situation in late calendar 2008, management reduced wages by $464,000 during the year and later reinstated full wages at the end of the year, resulting in a one-time cost savings of $464,000. This amount was netted against $190,000 in one-time bonuses paid out to employees after the prior wages we reinstated.

5) Offset from recovered professional fees which the Company previously recorded as an expense that were associated with defending the Company's tax positions during the IRS' 2003 and 2004 tax audit and appeal process.
