Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

ATLANTA, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TRX, Inc. (www.trx.com) (OTCQB: TRXI), a world-leading provider of travel technology, process automation, consulting and data services, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended 30 June 2012.

Total revenues excluding client reimbursements for the quarter were $11.6 million, compared with $12.4 million in the second quarter of 2011. Net income was $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared with a net loss of $(0.5) million for the second quarter of 2011. Net income per diluted share was $0.02 for the second quarter of 2012, compared with a net loss per diluted share of $(0.03) for the second quarter of 2011. Revenues from transaction processing services for the quarter were $8.3 million, compared to $9.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. Revenues from data intelligence services for the quarter were $3.3 million, compared to $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.3 million for the quarter, compared to $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2011.

"Our team delivered a strong quarter marked by material progress across our strategic initiatives," said Shane Hammond, President and CEO of TRX, Inc.  "We have invested in features, scale, and stability across all of our products, and we have generated exciting growth opportunities through both our direct sales efforts and through our alliances with partners in the industry.  We capped off a productive summer at the Global Business Travel Association convention, the business travel event of the year, with our best event in history, leaving us excited about our near term future."

David Cathcart, CFO, added, "I am pleased with our Adjusted EBITDA improvement versus prior year, indicative of the strategic shift in our revenue mix to more profitable products.  Additionally, revenues from our transaction processing services remain steady while continuing to reflect the sale of our booking product in the fourth quarter of 2011."

Based on management's expectations, TRX reaffirmed the calendar year 2012 financial guidance provided earlier in the year as follows:

  • Revenues of $45 to $47 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $4.5 to $5.5 million

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

TRX provides financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). Presentation of non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow provide investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate our performance. These non-GAAP measures provide a baseline for assessing the Company's future earnings expectations. TRX management uses these non-GAAP measures for the same purpose. The non-GAAP measures included in this release are provided to give investors access to the types of measures that we use in analyzing our results.

EBITDA consists of GAAP net income adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. EBITDA provides useful information to investors about the Company's performance because it eliminates the effects of period to period changes in the cost associated with capital investments, interest expense and taxes. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not give effect to the cash the Company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes and thus do not reflect the funds generated from operations or actually available for capital expenditures.

Free Cash Flow consists of GAAP cash flow from operating activities minus capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow provides a useful indicator about the Company's ability to fund its operations and repay its debts.

TRX's calculation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. These non-GAAP measures may be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Schedules that reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income and Free Cash Flow to Net Cash Provided by Operations are included with this release.
