Cover-All Announces First Quarter 2014 Results

Cover-All Technologies Inc. (NYSE MKT: COVR) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

“We are pleased to report solid financial results driven by growth in services revenue and improvements in gross margins for support and services revenue,” said Manish Shah, CEO and President of Cover-All. “We are focusing on executing services backlogs, further improving gross margins and extending our sales and marketing efforts to boost organic growth while we look for accretive and strategic acquisition targets.”

Mr. Shah continued: “Historically, license revenues vary quarter-to-quarter and, as a result, we do not use it as a measure for growth by comparing it against previous quarters. Our services and support revenue grew 83% and 5%, respectively, this quarter compared to the same period in 2013.

“The cost saving initiatives implemented in 2013 resulted in improved margins, operating profitability and free cash flow. Gross margins for services and support revenue were 36% this quarter compared to 3% for the same period in 2013.

“We are extending our sales and marketing reach to grow organically and continue to see demand for our core systems and data analytics in the US P/C insurance industry. To support our organic growth strategies, we believe there are opportunities for accretive acquisitions. We are seeking acquisitions that create enterprise-wide solutions, develop cloud, mobile, and analytic products, and complement our business processing services.”

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Statements in this press release, other than statements of historical information, are forward-looking statements that are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks which may cause the Company’s actual results in future periods to differ materially from expected results. Those risks include, among others, risks associated with increased competition, customer decisions, the successful completion of continuing development of new products, the successful negotiations, execution and implementation of anticipated new software contracts, the successful implementation of our acquisition strategies and our ability to complete or integrate acquisitions, the successful addition of personnel in the marketing and technical areas, our ability to complete development and sell and license our products at prices which result in sufficient revenues to realize profits and other business factors beyond the Company’s control. Those and other risks are described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) over the last 12 months, including but not limited to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, filed with the SEC on March 28, 2014, copies of which are available from the SEC or may be obtained upon request from the Company.

*ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In evaluating its business, Cover-All considers and uses EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its operating performance. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company presents EBITDA because it believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance.

The term EBITDA is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, EBITDA does not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Cover-All, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. Cover-All compensates for these limitations by relying on its U.S. GAAP results and using EBITDA only supplementally.
