SofTech Announces Q3 FY 2006 Financial Results

TEWKSBURY, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 14, 2006— SofTech, Inc. (OTCBB: SOFT), a proven provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced Q3 fiscal 2006 results. Revenue for Q3 FY 2006 was $2.9 million as compared to $3.0 million for the same period in fiscal 2005. The net loss for the current quarter was ($581,000) or ($.05) per share as compared to ($394,000) or ($.03) per share for the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Revenue for the nine months ended February 28, 2006 was about $9.4 million as compared to about $9.0 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the nine months ended February 28, 2006 was ($1,017,000) or ($.08) per share as compared to a net loss of ($943,000) or ($.08) per share for the same period in the prior fiscal year.

The net loss adjusted for non-cash expenses related to amortization of intangible assets resulting from acquisitions, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $(227,000) for the current quarter as compared to $217,000 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. This same non-GAAP financial measure for the nine months ended February 28, 2006 was $501,000 as compared to $889,000 for the same period in the prior year. A reconciliation is provided on the attached Financial Summary.

The Company's revenue is derived almost entirely from technology acquisitions completed between 1997 and 2002. As a result, management believes the Company's financial profile is very unique, at least in the industry in which it operates. Approximately 71% of its assets are composed of intangible assets related to these acquisitions. The amortization of these intangible assets was approximately 15% of its total expenses and 16% of its revenue. Further, the periods over which these intangible costs are expensed are highly judgmental.

It is management's opinion that comparing results of operations from period to period and to other companies in our industry absent these non-cash expenses related to acquisitions is a more meaningful measure of our performance given the Company's unique financial profile detailed above. It is also management's belief that this non-GAAP measure of performance is one of the most critical measures of Company valuation for investors. Lastly, this measure of performance has been, and is expected to continue to be, a significant component of the incentive compensation plan for the Company's President.

"Our revenue performance for Q3 was well below our expectations" said Joe Mullaney, SofTech's President. "We enjoyed 23% revenue growth from our ProductCenter technology offering in Q3 2006 (and 23% for the nine months) as compared to the same period in 2005, however, our CADRA and CAM product lines struggled with a combined 23% revenue decline for the quarter (and 11% for the nine months). As we finish up the fiscal year our goal is maintain the significant growth momentum for ProductCenter while bolstering our CADRA and CAM technology offerings through additional marketing incentives."

"The value of our ProductCenter PLM technology is very clear. We have increased our investment in this technology during the year which is the primary reason for the 13% increase in cash expenditures in Q3 2006 as compared to the same period in 2005. As of the end of the quarter the market reach of this technology has been greatly expanded. We introduced the German, Italian and French versions of ProductCenter, as well as the integration for the CATIA and the Unigraphics proprietary CAD technology offerings. By the end of the fiscal year we expect that we will also be able to support Microsoft's SQL Server database as well. These investments in ProductCenter are partly responsible for the increased net loss in Q3 but we hope it will fuel revenue and profit growth in the future."

"Our ProductCenter PLM technology offers its users an affordable, easy to use/install, data management and collaboration technology for managing the lifecycle of its products and is especially applicable in a multi-CAD environment. Our 23% revenue growth in 2006 for this product demonstrates the market's recognition of these attributes. With the addition of new languages, additional proprietary CAD tool integrations and Microsoft SQL Server we hope to continue this revenue growth into 2007 and beyond," Mullaney added.

Reconciliation  of  Net  Loss  to  Pro  Forma  Net  Income:

The  net  loss  calculated  in  accordance  with  GAAP  is  adjusted  below  by
non-cash  expenses  related  to  amortization  of  intangible  assets
resulting  from  acquisitions.  It  is  management's  view  that  this
non-GAAP  financial  measure  of  cash  flow  provides  important  information
in  understanding  the  Company's  financial  performance.
