PAR Technology Corporation Announces 2014 Second Quarter Results from Continuing Operations

July 31, 2014

NEW HARTFORD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) today announced results from continuing operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. PAR reported revenues from continuing operations of $57.4 million and net loss of $519,000 or $0.03 loss per share. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company’s net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter was $336,000 or $0.02 loss per share. During the second quarter of 2013, PAR reported revenue from continuing operations of $59.5 million and net income of $248,000 or $0.02 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company’s net income from continuing operations was $302,000 or $0.02 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013. These non-GAAP results exclude charges related to the Company’s equity based compensation plans.

Commenting on the second quarter, Ronald J. Casciano, Chief Executive Officer & President, stated, “Although not unexpected, our results were impacted in the quarter by lower revenues in our Government segment due to the timing of certain task orders. Our bottom line results were impacted by the continuing investments in our hospitality segment and specifically regarding our next generation hotel products. However, we continue to make progress on executing that investment strategy and are making important strides towards broadening our customer base as well. While certainly not satisfied with our results, we remain confident in our market opportunities and our leading technology and services in our Hospitality and Government segments.”

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP, which refers to financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as defined in the reconciliation table above, are provided herein because management uses such measures in evaluating the results of the continuing operations of the Company and believes this information provides investors better insight into underlying business trends and performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The adjustments for the three months ended June 30, relate to the Company’s stock compensation expense included within the Company’s operating expenses. During the second quarter of 2014, the Company recorded equity based compensation charges of $278,000 as compared to $82,000 recorded during the second quarter of 2013.

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded $802,000 for equity based compensation expense. During the first six months of 2013, the Company recorded total charges of $928,000, which included a benefit of $281,000 related to equity compensation expense. The other charges of $1,209,000 were composed of $938,000 for separation related charges and legal costs of $271,000 associated with an intellectual property matter that was settled during 2013. The aforementioned charges, along with an associated adjustment to the Company’s provision for income taxes have been excluded in the Company’s non-GAAP measures because they are considered non-recurring in nature and are quantitatively and qualitatively different from the Company’s core operations during any particular period.
