  • Cinema deployment included outfitting every seat, totaling approximately 1,100, in all 5 locations of a new concept theater by a US top 4 theater operator.

  • Total revenues decreased 10 percent year-over-year to approximately $1.92 million, primarily due to a decrease in international sales, noted below.

  • International sales decreased to $860,000 in 2013 from approximately $1,170,000 in 2012, primarily due to weakness in sales to the European market and most notably France.

  • Gross margins increased to 42 percent for all of 2013 as compared to 40 percent for all of 2012.

  • Approximately $1.25 million of new equity was raised from private placements in FY2013.

Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP Net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:

EBITDA is defined as earnings (loss) before net interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock warrant expense, payment of stock and warrants to consultants and employee stock-based compensation. Although EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Guitammer believes that these non-GAAP measures will allow for a better evaluation of the operating performance of the business and facilitate meaningful comparison of the results in the current period to those in prior periods and future periods. However, investors should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, or any other measure for determining Guitammer's operating performance that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, net loss, follows:
