  • GAAP operating margin from continuing operations of two percent for the quarter, compared to operating margin of negative (46) percent for the same period last year.

Without the impairment, 2012 operating margin in the quarter and the year were three percent and two percent, respectively.
  • GAAP net income from continuing operations of $453,000 for the quarter, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(7.3) million from continuing operations, or $(0.41) per diluted share for the same period last year. $3.3 million net income from continuing operations for the year, or $0.18 per diluted share, as compared to net loss from continuing operations of $(6.7) million or $(0.38) per diluted share in 2012. The goodwill and intangible asset impairment in the fourth quarter 2012 accounted for a net loss of approximately $(0.44) per diluted share in the quarter and year.
  • Non-GAAP operating profit and net income are measures the company uses to reflect the results of its core earnings. The Company’s reporting of Non-GAAP net income excludes expenses for restructuring, gain or loss on sale of assets, stock based compensation, amortization and impairment of intangible assets and goodwill related to the Company’s acquisitions, and non-cash related income tax expense.
    • Non-GAAP operating margin from continuing operations of 10 percent in the quarter, compared to seven percent in the same period last year. Non-GAAP operating margin for the year was nine percent as compared to eight percent in 2012.

  • $57.9 million of cash, short-term investments at December 31, 2013, an increase of approximately $3.0 million from the preceding quarter. This change reflects approximately $4.2 million of cash flow from operations less approximately $1.0 million in capital expenditures.

This schedule reconciles the Company's GAAP operating income and GAAP net income to its non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income. The Company believes that presentation of this schedule provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company's core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results.

 

(a) These adjustments reflect stock based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, and general and administrative expenses associated with the TelWorx investigation.

 

(b) These adjustments include the items described in footnote (a) as well as other income for the TelWorx legal settlement and insurance claims related to the TelWorx investigation, and non-cash income tax expense.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
