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.

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):

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
