BluePhoenix Solutions Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

BluePhoenix Solutions (NASDAQ: BPHX), the leader in legacy lifecycle modernization, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012. The turnaround plan continues to be on target showing better operating income and increased gross profit.

With the completion of another discontinued operation, BridgeQuest Inc., net operating income on a non-GAAP basis is reported to have improved 45% in Q4 over Q3 with a loss of only $72 K. Additional achievements in Q4 include an improvement in the cash balance of 33% to $2.56 million. Net cash burn continues to decrease and is down to $281 K in Q4. Earnings per share were better quarter over quarter with a non-GAAP loss of $(0.02) per diluted share in Q4 compared to a loss of $(0.03) in Q3.

Matt Bell, CEO of BluePhoenix said, “We are very happy with the progress we are making and the quarterly numbers continue to show improving results. Almost all of the restructuring is behind us and we are now focused on our core strengths, building sales, and launching new marketing efforts. As a result the pipeline is growing and we are finding new areas to leverage existing technology to sell to new markets.”

BluePhoenix will go over the following numbers during their quarterly conference call today at 4:30PM Eastern US time. The call can be accessed by dialing 1-888-668-9141 within the United States, or via +972-3-9180610 if calling internationally, approximately five minutes prior to its scheduled commencement. A live Veidan Broadcasting and a replay can be accessed through a link that will be available via the BluePhoenix website.

Non-GAAP financial measures

The release includes non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and other non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income. These non-GAAP measures exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of intangible assets;
  • Stock-based compensation;
  • Onetime expenses related to cost saving plan and one time charges;
  • Revaluation of derivatives and discount amortization;
  • Gain on sales of subsidiaries and Appbuilder ;
  • Net loss from discontinued operation.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to BluePhoenix' GAAP results and is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. BluePhoenix' management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding certain charges and gains that may not be indicative of BluePhoenix' core business operating results. BluePhoenix believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing BluePhoenix' performance. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons to BluePhoenix' historical performance. BluePhoenix includes these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures in the table entitled "Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP."
