SofTech Announces Annual Financial Results for FY 2008

LOWELL, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 24, 2008— SofTech, Inc. (OTCBB:SOFT), a proven provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced Fiscal Year 2008 results. Revenue for FY 2008 was $10.1 million as compared to $11.0 million for the same period in FY 2007. The Companys results of operations improved substantially, with the Companys net loss decreasing by approximately $900,000 from ($1.2 million) ($.10 per share) in FY 2007 to approximately ($300,000) ($.03 per share) in FY 2008.

Net Cash flows from operating activities also improved considerably during FY 2008, increasing from approximately $300,000 (FY 2007) to approximately $1 million (FY 2008), over a 200% increase. While the Company has incurred operating losses during each of the six fiscal years ended May 31, 2006, the Company had income from operations during the last two fiscal years and generated positive net cash flow from operating activities in five out of the last six years. The year the Company failed to generate positive cash flow, it was break even. The Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the fiscal years ended May 31, 2008 and 2007 is provided on the attached Financial Summary.

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA), a non-GAAP financial measure, also improved substantially during FY 2008, increasing from $1.7 million (FY 2007) to $2.4 million (FY 2008), a 42% increase. A reconciliation of EBITDA to Net Loss is provided on the attached Financial Summary.

The Companys revenue is derived almost entirely from technology acquisitions completed between 1997 and 2002 and the Companys operations are not capital intensive. As of May 31, 2008, approximately 63% of the Companys assets represent intangible assets related to these historical acquisitions. The Company does not anticipate making further acquisitions in the foreseeable future. For FY 2008, amortization expense related to these intangible assets was approximately 13% of total expenses and total revenue. Further, the periods over which these intangible costs are expensed are highly judgmental.

The Company believes that EBITDA is useful supplemental information for investors when considered along with net income and other income statement data. The Company believes that EBITDA is useful because it provides investors with information concerning the potential longer term profitability of the Companys technology assets (subsequent to full amortization of costs), as amortization of acquisition costs has been added back to net income in arriving at EBITDA. Further, management believes that EBITDA provides a useful financial metric by which the Company can be compared with other companies that have different capital structures (interest (a cost of capital) has been added back to net income in arriving at EBITDA). It is also managements belief that this non-GAAP measure of performance continues to be used in the investment community as a financial metric for business valuation purposes.

However, the Company believes that EBITDA is not a substitute for cash flow from operating activities, which is disclosed above and in the Companys financial statements. Investors should carefully review the financial statements of the Company in their entirety in order to obtain a complete understanding of the Companys financial condition and results of operations.
