These forward-looking statements are based on estimates, projections, beliefs, and assumptions and are not guarantees of future events or results. Actual future events and results could differ materially from the events and results indicated in these statements as a result of many factors, including, how successful the buyer of our patents will be in its efforts to monetize them and our ability to: (1) generate sufficient cash flow from our operations or other sources to fund our working capital needs and growth initiatives; (2) maintain good relationships with our lender; (3) comply with the covenant requirements of the loan agreement; (4) successfully introduce and attain market acceptance of any new products and/or enhancements of existing products; (5) attract and retain qualified personnel; (6) prevent obsolescence of our technologies; (7) maintain agreements with our critical software vendors; (8) secure renewals of existing software maintenance contracts, as well as contracts with new maintenance customers; and (9) secure new business, both from existing and new customers, among others.
These and other additional factors that may cause actual future events and results to differ materially from the events and results indicated in the forward-looking statements above are set forth more fully under “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Form S-1 Registration Statement (No. 333-174818) and the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended February 28, 2013. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors that may affect such forward-looking statements.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company has presented EBITDA, which is defined as Net income plus interest expense, tax expense, non-cash expenses such as depreciation, amortization, non cash loss (gain) and stock based compensation expense, non-recurring professional fees. The Company believes that the inclusion of EBITDA helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company’s core operating results comparing such performance with prior periods, without the distortion of non-operating expenses and non-cash expenditures. Management uses EBITDA, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring our core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. EBITDA is also the most important measure of performance in measuring compliance with the Company’s debt facilities. EBITDA is not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release.
