"We are very pleased to continue realizing both revenue growth and margin expansion as a result of the acquisitions we have made since 2013.

"We accomplished a great deal in the second quarter including raising capital, acquiring AirPatrol and listing our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market. We believe our foundation is stronger than ever and our integration and transition continues according to plan," he continued.
Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Revenues for the three-month period ended June 30, 2014 were $17,145,000 compared to $14,789,000 for the comparable period in the prior year. This increase of $2,356,000 was primarily attributable to Sysorex’s acquisitions of Shoom in August 2013 and AirPatrol in April 2014.
Cost of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $11,465,000 compared to $11,790,000 for the comparable period in the prior year, a slight decrease of $325,000 primarily attributable to increased higher margin data analytics revenues from Lilien offset by the inclusion of Shoom and AirPatrol cost of revenues. Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were $8,050,000 compared to $3,429,000 for the comparable period in the prior year, an increase of $4,621,000. The increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to increased Lilien operating expenses and the Shoom and AirPatrol acquisitions.
Loss from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was ($2,370,000) compared to ($430,000) for the comparable period in the prior year. This increase of $1,940,000 was primarily attributable to acquisition transaction costs, expenses and amortization of intangibles related to the pursuit of Sysorex’s acquisition strategy.
Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $455,000 compared to $190,000 for the comparable period in the prior year. Consolidated net loss attributable to Sysorex shareholders was ($2,407,000) or ($0.13) per share compared to ($436,000) or ($0.03) per share for the comparable period in the prior year. Pro forma net loss per share was ($0.01) per share compared to ($0.00) per share for the comparable period in the prior year.
Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Loss and Pro Forma Net Loss per Share to GAAP Net Loss per Share
Management believes that certain financial measures not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") are useful measures of operations. EBIDTA, Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share are non-GAAP measures. Sysorex defines “EBITDA” as net income (loss) before interest, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as the matrix in which it manages the business and Sysorex defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash stock-based compensation. Sysorex defines “pro forma net loss per share” as GAAP net loss per share adjusted for stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and one time non-recurring charges such as acquisition and offering costs.
Management provides Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share measures so that investors will have the same financial information that management uses, which may assist investors in assessing Sysorex’s performance on a period-over-period basis. Adjusted EBITDA or pro forma net loss per share is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss) or any other measure of performance under GAAP, or to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Sysorex’s results as reported under GAAP.
The following table presents a reconciliation of net income/loss attributable to stockholders of Sysorex, which is our GAAP operating performance measure, to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013:
|Gain on settlement of obligations||--||15,000|
|Cost of public offering - non recurring one time charges||--||(87,000||)|
|Acquisition transaction costs - non-recurring one time charges||(771,000||)||(144,000||)|
|Stock-based compensation – included in acquisition costs||(320,000||)||--|
|Stock-based compensation – included in SG&A expense||(332,000||)||(127,000||)|
|Other interest expense||(104,000||)||(59,000||)|
|Depreciation and amortization||(1,335,000||)||(224,000||)|
|Net loss attributable to stockholders of Sysorex Global Holdings Corp.||$||(2,407,000||)||$||(436,000||)|
The following table presents a reconciliation of net loss per share – basic and diluted, which is our GAAP operating performance measure, to pro forma net loss per share for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013:
|Net loss per share – basic and diluted||$||(0.13||)||$||(0.03||)|
|Amortization of intangibles||0.06||0.02|
|Stock based compensation||0.02||0.01|
|Stock based compensation – acquisition costs||0.02||--|
|Proforma net loss per share||$||(0.01||)||$||(0.00||)|

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.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
