2013 Full Year Financial Highlights and Recent Developments

  • National launch of the patented "4D Sports powered by ButtKicker" tactile enabled broadcast technology for the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) on ESPN2 telecasts. Debuting with the September 14th, 2013 telecast and then for all subsequent 2013 telecasts.

  • Significant acceleration in worldwide cinema deployment with over 4,000 "4D Cinema powered by ButtKicker" seats added in 22 auditoriums in the US, China and Hong Kong which almost doubled the Company's US footprint and more than doubled the Company's footprint in China & Hong Kong.

  • 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.

  • US sales increased over 10% to approximately $1,060,000 in 2013 from approximately $960,000 in 2012.

  • 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.

  • Continued trend from 2012 of improving working capital deficit with an improvement of (i.e. a decrease of) $70,000 or 4.4 percent in 2013 as compared to 2012.

Rich Conn, Guitammer's CFO, stated, "We are pleased with our Q4 2013 results, last year's gross margin, and the fact that we were able to continue to invest in and begin to commercialize our broadcast technology."

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:
