  • Non-GAAP net loss for the first nine months of 2018 was $1.1 million, or $0.07 loss per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $4.0 million, or $0.25 earnings per diluted share, for the same period in 2017.

A reconciliation and description of non-GAAP financial measures to corresponding GAAP financial measures are included in the tables at the end of this press release.

Our results for the quarter reflect the continued transition of the Company, with declining revenues from our legacy products offset by growth from our new offerings, including a 60% increase in year-over-year subscription revenues. In addition, Brink, our industry leading cloud POS solution, continues to gain traction in the restaurant marketplace, evidenced by the 886 new restaurant bookings in the quarter, an increase of more than 150% from last years third quarter, commented PAR President & CEO, Dr. Donald H. Foley. In the recently ended quarter we also reported a 17% increase in year-over-year contract revenues in our Government segment. We continue to focus on making important investments in the Company that will support and enhance our future growth.

Forward-Looking Statements.

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements appear throughout this press release, including express or implied forward-looking statements relating to our expectations regarding anticipated financial performance, customer and product opportunities, and assumptions as to future events. Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Companys control that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in these statements. Risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially include: delays in new product development and/or product introduction; changes in customer base and product, and service demands, including changes in product or service demands by the two customers from whom a significant portion of our revenue is derived; risks associated with the internal investigation into conduct at our China and Singapore offices, including sanctions and fines that may be imposed by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and other governmental authorities; our ability to execute our business plan and continue to fund current operations will require us to obtain waivers or modifications to our credit agreement and/or secure alternative or additional sources of capital, which may be unavailable on acceptable terms, or at all; significant changes in U.S. and international trade policies that restrict imports or increase tariffs on goods imported to the United States from China; and the other risk factors discussed in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings with the SEC. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities law.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as set forth in the reconciliation tables below, are provided because management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the results of the Company’s continuing operations and believes this information provides investors supplemental insight into underlying business trends and operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the Companys financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company’s results of operations are impacted by certain non-recurring charges, including equity based compensation, acquisition related expenditures, expense relating to the internal investigation into conduct in China and Singapore and the SEC subpoena, and other non-recurring charges that may not be indicative of the Companys financial performance. Management believes that adjusting its operating expenses, operating income (loss), net earnings (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share to remove non-recurring charges provides a useful perspective with respect to our operating results and provides supplemental information to both management and investors by removing items that are difficult to predict and are often unanticipated. While the Company believes the adjustments provide a useful comparison, the reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to corresponding GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated.

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company recorded $305,000 of selling, general and administrative expenses related to the Companys internal investigation into conduct at its China and Singapore offices and the SEC subpoena. Additionally, $323,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the third quarter of 2018. There were $157,000 of severance expenses recorded in the third quarter. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $241,000 related to the Companys 2014 acquisition of Brink Software, Inc. (“Brink”) and recorded a one-time $14,894,000 valuation allowance to reduce the carrying value of its deferred tax assets. FASB ASC 740-10-30-21 indicates that the main negative factor in determining whether to establish a valuation allowance is the incurrence of cumulative losses in the most recent three years. Such objective evidence (or factor) limits the ability to consider other subjective factors, such as projections for future growth. The Company has incurred losses for two of the past three years and is in a loss position for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. A significant factor of the losses has been the Companys strategic investment in operating expenses to fund the growth of the Brink business line. The increase in investments has outpaced operating performance of the Companys other lines of business. The Company plans to continue to fund the Brink business line growth in the foreseeable future. Based on its evaluation of its deferred tax assets at September 30, 2018, the Company established a full valuation allowance for the carrying value of its deferred tax assets. The valuation allowance can be reversed if objective negative evidence in the form of cumulative losses is no longer present and additional weight is given to subjective evidence, such as our projections of future growth. The valuation allowance was offset by $0.3 million or 24% representing the tax impact of non-GAAP adjustments.

During the third quarter of 2017, the Company recorded charges within selling, general and administrative of $705,000 related to the Companys internal investigation into conduct at its China and Singapore offices and the SEC subpoena. In addition, $63,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the third quarter of 2017. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $241,000 related to the Companys acquisition of Brink. The benefit from income tax was decreased by 37%, or $373,000, to reflect the tax impact from non-GAAP adjustments.
