LITTLETON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/14 -- Dover Saddlery, Inc. (NASDAQ: DOVR), the leading omni-channel retailer of equestrian products, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.
Total revenues for the first quarter of 2014 increased 9.4% to $19.7 million, from $18.0 million achieved in the first quarter of 2013. Revenues in the retail channel increased 21.5% to $8.8 million from $7.2 million, due primarily to the opening of new stores in 2013; while same-store sales for the first quarter of 2014 increased 3.7%.
The net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $(543,000), or $(0.10) per diluted share, compared to $(538,000) or $(0.10) per diluted share in the first quarter of the prior year.
"I am pleased to report that the three Dover Saddlery stores opened in the fourth quarter of 2013 performed very well in the first quarter of this year. These stores have contributed towards the 22% increase in retail channel revenues," commented Stephen L. Day, president and CEO of Dover Saddlery. "The increase in selling, general and administrative expense was due primarily to increased direct marketing costs and increased labor and lease expenses associated with the new stores."
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 improved to $(479,000), from $(514,000) in the first quarter of 2013. A reconciliation of the net income calculated in accordance with GAAP and the non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA measure is provided in the table accompanying this press release.
Business Outlook 2014

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Information
From time to time, in addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), the Company provides financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. The Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures in its analysis of the Company's performance and ongoing operations. The Company believes that these non-GAAP operating measures supplement our GAAP financial information and provide useful information to investors for evaluating the Company's operating results and trends that may be affecting the Company's business, as they allow investors to more readily compare our operations to prior financial results and our future performance. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.
When we use the term "Adjusted EBITDA," we are referring to net income minus interest income, investment income and other income plus interest expense, income taxes, non-cash stock-based compensation, depreciation, amortization and other investment loss. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we consider it an important measure of our performance, and the Company ties its executive and employee bonus pools directly to this measure. We also believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.
The following table reconciles net loss to Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands):

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
