PAR Technology Corporation Announces 2014 First Quarter Results

PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. The Company reported first quarter revenues of $56.5 million and a net loss from continuing operations of $989,000 or $0.06 loss per share. This compares with fiscal 2013 first quarter revenue of $66.7 million and a net loss from continuing operations of $369,000 or $0.02 loss per share. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company’s net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2014 was $644,000 or $0.04 loss per share. This compares to non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $178,000 or $0.01 per diluted share during the first quarter of 2013. See the attached Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Results table for further information on these non-GAAP results.

“Our first quarter results reflect a decline in revenue as we periodically experience volatility regarding the timing of product deployments with certain major customers within our Hospitality business, as well as volatility associated with task orders on our ISR contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense. Despite these revenue challenges, we have continued to execute upon cost reduction initiatives to help manage through this volatility,” said PAR Technology President and Chief Executive Officer Ronald J. Casciano. “Although our first quarter results were challenging, we have continued our investment in new technologies associated with both our Hospitality and Government businesses. While these investments impact profitability, they are essential for the Company’s long-term growth.”

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP, which refers 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.

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company recorded a charge of $523,000 for equity based compensation expense. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company recorded total charges of $878,000. The most significant of the charges was $607,000 of separation related and equity based compensation expense. In addition to this charge, the Company incurred legal costs of $271,000 associated with an intellectual property matter that was settled during the quarter. 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.
