July 1, 2014

ENP Newswire - 01 July 2014

Release date- 27062014 - NEW YORK - MKTG INC (OTCQB: CMKG), a full service marketing agency, today announced its operating results for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.

Operating Results - Fiscal 2014

For its fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, Operating Revenue increased $1.0 million or 2% to $43.9 million, compared to $42.9 million for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2013. Compensation and general and administrative expenses were $41.0 million for the fiscal 2014, compared to $38.2 million for fiscal 2013. Operating income for fiscal 2014 was $2.8 million, compared to $4.7 million for fiscal 2013. Modified EBITDA for fiscal 2014 was $3.9 million, compared to $6.1 million for fiscal 2013.

Fair Value Adjustment to Compound Embedded Derivatives

The Company's income statements for the periods include accounting adjustments shown below the operating income line. These are non-cash fair value adjustments to compound embedded derivative generated from the Company's December 2009 financing. For the twelve months ended March 31, 2014 and March 31, 2013, these adjustments amounted to $979,000 and ($1,660,000), respectively.

The amount of these adjustments is driven by a number of factors, most importantly, by the value of the Company's stock. As its stock price fluctuates, the Company is required to record adjustments, with increases in stock price reducing net income, and declines in stock price increasing net income. Consequently, the Company believes it is most appropriate to focus on its operating income as the basis for assessing operating performance.

Operating Revenue and Modified EBITDA

The Company believes Operating Revenue and Modified EBITDA are key performance indicators. The Company defines Operating Revenue as sales less reimbursable program costs and expenses and outside production and other program expenses. Operating Revenue is the net amount derived from sales to customers that management believes is available to fund compensation, general and administrative expenses and capital expenditures.

The Company defines Modified EBITDA as income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization plus other non-cash expenses. The Company uses Modified EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate operational performance. Operating Revenue and Modified EBITDA are Non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by management to provide additional information to investors in order to provide them with alternative methods for assessing the Company's financial condition and operating results.

These measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, GAAP and may be different from or inconsistent with Non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Reconciliations of Operating Revenue to sales and Modified EBITDA to operating income are provided at the end of this press release.
