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.

Notes:

* During Q4 2012 we announced the initiation of the sale of the operations of BridgeQuest. The results for 2012 are presented after reclassification of Liacom Ltd. and Bridgequest Inc. as discontinued operation.

** The goodwill valuation is currently underway by a third party appraisal. We expect that the valuation will be completed prior to the filing of our Annual Report on Form 20-F. Actual results may differ from the estimated amount in this press release.

At present, following the completion of the sale of AppBuilder business, an amount of $1 million is held in escrow accounts to secure certain company obligations under the sale agreement.

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."

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.
