Anthony Angelini, Chief Executive Officer of TSS, stated, "Our first quarter was reflective of the trends and results we expect to see as we move through the year. The revenue mix was balanced across our core businesses. This mix resulted in a 10% growth in gross profit over our fourth quarter and gross margin of 31.7%. The expanded gross profit was achieved on lower revenue sequentially but is reflective of our focus on higher margin, recurring business streams. Last year in the first quarter we benefited from a one-time battery sale that contributed approximately $5 million in revenue and roughly $500 thousand in gross profit. As we progress through the year, we anticipate improved performance and contribution from our acquired systems integration business and see our overall business benefitting from the solutions we are bringing to our current and prospective customers."

Commenting further, Angelini stated, "Our first quarter results included elevated audit and other costs. Without these specific costs and at our current business levels, we expect to experience lower operating costs quarterly through the balance of the year. We believe the balance of 2014 will show continued improvement in our core businesses and deliver normalized adjusted EBITDA profitability for the year."

First Quarter Financial Highlights:

•First quarter 2014 revenue of $7.1 million compared with $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. •Gross profit of $2.2 million compared with $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2013. •Gross Margin of 31.7% compared with 19.5% in the first quarter of 2013. •Normalized Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.3 million compared with Normalized Adjusted EBITDA income of $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. •Net loss of $0.9 million, or $(0.06) per basic and diluted share, compared with net loss of approximately $23,000, or $(0.00) per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures not defined under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment loss on goodwill and other intangibles, stock-based compensation, and provision for bad debts.  We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe this supplemental measure of operating performance is helpful in comparing our operating results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding non-cash items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our results of operations in any particular period. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of certain management personnel when determining incentive compensation.

We define Normalized Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted EBITDA before restructuring charges and certain other non-recurring costs. We present Normalized Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is helpful in comparing our operating results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding from Adjusted EBITDA certain non-recurring items that do not directly correlate to our business and may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our performance during a particular period.  Similar to Adjusted EBITDA, we also use Normalized Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of certain management personnel when determining incentive compensation.  

Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA, while providing useful information, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or cash flows as determined under GAAP. Consistent with Regulation G under the U.S. federal securities laws, Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure, and this reconciliation is located under the heading "Normalized Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation" following the Consolidated Statements of Operations included in this press release.
