TUALATIN, Ore., March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative technologies, today announced year-end financial results for the year ended December 31, 2011.
The Company's revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011 were $38,938,326, up from $37,575,157 in FY 2010. More significantly, the company reported EBITDA of $2,004,747 for FY 2011 as compared to EBITDA of ($1,169,120) for FY 2010. Combined non-GAAP supplemental disclosure follows this release.
In addition, the company's cash flow from continuing operating activities increased 107% to $860,705, while its income from operations for FY 2011 was $658,887 compared to a loss for FY 2010 of ($1,473,250). The company has reduced its net loss per share from ($1.12) per share in FY 2010 to ($0.01) in FY 2011. This reduction in net loss is a result of the company's improved cash flow, strategic debt reduction, and introduction of other initiatives to reduce costs, increase revenues, and enhance profitability.
William Clough, chief executive officer, stated, "These results continue to demonstrate the effectiveness of our initiatives, including an enhanced sales channel, the retirement and/or re-structure of significant debt, and the continued introduction and commercialization of our new products, including product based upon CUI Global's proprietary technologies."
"Moreover, these results include no significant income from either our Vergence™ Technology or Novum™ Digital Point-of-Load Technology; and no income from our Solus™ Technology," explained Clough. "As these exciting new technologies come to market this year and into FY 2013, coupled with the significant reduction in debt we recently accomplished, along with our recent up-listing to the Nasdaq Capital Market, should all combine to put us in a position to see significant growth in both revenue and shareholder value in FY 2012," Clough concluded.

EBITDA does not represent funds available for management's discretionary use and is not intended to represent cash flow from operations. EBITDA should not be construed as a substitute for net loss or as a better measure of liquidity than cash flow from operating activities, which is determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). EBITDA excludes components that are significant in understanding and assessing our results of operations and cash flows. In addition, EBITDA is not a term defined by GAAP and as a result our measure of EBITDA might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. However, EBITDA is used by management to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Company's operational results and the Company believes that EBITDA is relevant and useful information, which is often reported and widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in our industry. Accordingly, the Company is disclosing this information to permit a more comprehensive analysis of its operating performance, to provide an additional measure of performance and liquidity and to provide additional information with respect to the Company's ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditure and working capital requirements.
