Conference Call Today at 5:00 P.M. ET

ATLANTA, Sept. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in storage, protection, transformation, and delivery of visual media assets, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. 

"During fiscal 2017, we transformed Concurrent into a focused leader in video media storage and delivery creating a solid foundation for growth," said Derek Elder, President and CEO. "According to a recent industry report, by 2020 video will account for 79% of all global internet traffic, creating a need for a solution to manage the delivery and storage demands created by this explosion of video traffic on the Internet. With our Content Delivery and Aquari(TM) storage solutions, we are uniquely positioned to capitalize on this large and growing market opportunity.

"We are successfully executing on our growth initiatives and have made significant progress with new technology and channel partnerships, expanded customer relationships and new customer design wins.  As we move into the new fiscal year, our continued top priority is to maintain a solid foundation for steady, profitable growth. For fiscal 2018, we expect to generate full year revenue growth of at least 10% year over year. Additionally, we expect to generate breakeven to positive Adjusted EBITDA for the year. We have a significantly strengthened balance sheet, and our Board of Directors continues to evaluate strategies to maximize shareholder returns," concluded Mr. Elder.

Financial Results

With the sale of Concurrent's Real-Time business during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, the company now reports results from continuing operations, which excludes financial results from the Real-Time business. Financial results from the company's former Real-Time business are reported within discontinued operations. The following financial results for the current and prior periods are from Concurrent's continuing operations.

Fiscal Fourth Quarter Financial Results:

Total revenue for the fourth quarter was $7.8 million, compared to $7.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 and $8.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. 

Total gross margin as a percentage of revenue was 56.2%, compared to 54.6% in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 and 65.2% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. 

Loss from continuing operations was $(1.0) million, or $(0.10) per share, compared to loss from continuing operations of $(3.2) million, or $(0.34) per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 and a loss from continuing operations of $(9.5) million, or $(1.03) per share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations was $(0.9) million, which included $1.0 million in severance expenses in connection with reducing our operating expenses subsequent to the sale of the Real-Time business, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of $(2.9) million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017, which included $1.1 million in transaction-related expenses and $0.4 million of severance expenses, and an Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of $(0.7) million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measurements" below for more information on the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, including a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to loss from continuing operations. 

Business Highlights:

  • Added nine new Aquari customers in fiscal 2017, for a total of 18 at fiscal year end. 
  • Three Aquari customers expanded usage in fiscal 2017.
  • Added seven new Content Delivery customers in fiscal 2017, for a total of 27 at fiscal year end.
  • Nine Content Delivery customers expanded usage during fiscal 2017.
  • Signed multiple new strategic partnership agreements during the fiscal year, bringing the company's total number of channel partners to 19. These new partnerships include:
    --  An OEM agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), that expands Concurrent's reach with telecommunications customer that prefer HPE hardware
    --  Technology alliances with Moonwalk Universal and Endavo Media that expand Concurrent's reach into new use cases of video archiving and over-the-top (OTT) video platform offerings respectively
    --  Channel partnership with Rincon Technology that increases the sales breadth of Concurrent offerings to Rincon's 1000+ customers.

Fiscal 2017 Financial Results

Total revenue for fiscal 2017 was $27.6 million, compared to $32.0 million in fiscal 2016.

Gross margin was 55.0%, compared to 58.7% in fiscal 2016.

Loss from continuing operations was $(11.1) million, or $(1.20) loss per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $(12.7) million, or $(1.39) loss per diluted share, in fiscal 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations was ($10.0) million, which included $1.6 million in severance expenses, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of ($7.2) million in fiscal 2016, which included $0.2 million of severance expenses. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measurements" below for more information on the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations, including a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations to loss from continuing operations, which we believe to be the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP. 

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $42.8 million and working capital was $45.2 million as of June 30, 2017. The company continued to pay quarterly dividends of $0.12 per share in each of the four quarters of fiscal 2017. The company has no debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

To supplement the company's condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this news release provides information concerning the company's Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to loss from continuing operations, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in tables immediately following the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

For purposes of this news release, Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP loss from continuing operations, less interest income and other income (expense), net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, share-based compensation expense and gain on the sale of assets. The company considers Adjusted EBITDA important to understanding its historical results and identifying current and future trends impacting its business. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare the company's performance to that of prior periods and evaluate the company's financial and operating results on a consistent basis from period to period. The company also believes this measure, when viewed in combination with the company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends. The adjustments to the company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the company's underlying operational results, trends and performance. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash flow for management's discretionary use. We believe that the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors because securities analysts, noteholders and other investors use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess our operating performance across periods on a consistent basis and to evaluate the relative risk of an investment in our securities.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, however, including the following:

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our tax expense or any cash requirements to pay income taxes; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations, but may nonetheless have a material impact on our results of operations.

The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to the company's financial results determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies, including other companies in our industry.

At the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Chairman of Pilatus Bank draws a stark comparison of the role technology has played in banking vs telecommunication21.9.2017 08:58Pressemelding

LONDON, Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ali Sadr, Chairman of Pilatus Bank, believes that banks have failed to capture the true essence of technology for improving quality of service, as well as lacking the vision necessary to capture customers' imaginations. Meanwhile, other industries have been revolutionized and continue to thrive by the same technology. America has in the last 10 years been forced to close 10,000 branches. Since 2008, Europe has lost close to 48,000 branches, which is more than 20% of its branch network. There is little doubt that branch banking is on the decline, and online banking is failing to provide a quality service.  As we mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Ali Sadr, Chairman of Pilatus Bank, gives a sobering count of the current state of affairs in the use of technology among well established banks, and elaborates on a vision that has the potential to become the largest revolution the banking industry is yet to experience.
