August 11, 2014

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jagged Peak, Inc.(OTCBB:JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class e-commerce solutions and supply chain services, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 27, 2014.

Second Quarter Highlights:

• Total revenue for the 13-week period increased 27% to $13.6 million compared to the same period last year.• Interest expense for the 13-week period decreased by $6,100 to $47,800 compared to the same period last year.• Added 175,000 square feet of leased warehouse space in Florida.

Revenues increased $2,908,200, or 27%, to $13,624,800 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, as compared to $10,716,600 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013. Greater e-commerce order processing resulted in increases in both technology and fulfillment service revenues. Revenues from implementation of new client sites and on-going development for existing clients were consistent across these periods.

Cost of revenue, which consists primarily of labor, fulfillment operations and facilities costs, increased by $3,154,600, or 37%, to $11,714,900 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, as compared to $8,560,300 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 86% for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, as compared to 80% for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013. This increase is primarily related to the increase in fulfillment employees, contract labor needed to manage order growth and fulfillment costs incurred as part of the expanded warehouse space.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $717,100, or 42%, to $2,410,600 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, as compared to $1,693,500 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013. This increase was primarily related to increases in staff costs due to additional employees needed to grow client support teams and the expanded warehouse space.

Interest expense decreased by $6,100 to $47,800 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, as compared to $53,900 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013.

The Company realized a loss before provision for income taxes of $504,800 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, as compared to income before provision for income taxes of $376,800 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013.

Income tax benefit was $137,400 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014 compared to an income tax expense of $152,300 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013. Differences between the taxable income and the effective tax rate used for 2014 and 2013, as compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate, are primarily due to permanent differences and taxes on foreign operations. As of June 27, 2014, the Company had U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $880,400 to reduce future taxable income, which will expire between 2027 and 2032. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $1,649,600 which does not begin to expire until 2030. Management believes there will be sufficient future earnings to support the more than likely realization of deferred tax assets in excess of existing taxable temporary differences. The amount of deferred tax assets considered realizable, however, could be reduced in the near-term if estimates of future taxable income are reduced.

The Company realized a net loss of $367,400 for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014, compared with net income of $224,500 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013.

Basic loss per share from operations for the 13-week period ended June 27, 2014 was $0.02 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.01 per weighted average share for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 26-week period ended June 27, 2014 was approximately $181,400 compared to approximately $974,400 for the 26-week period ended June 28, 2013. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization. To provide consistent comparisons of year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA, the following reconciliation is provided:
