AUSTIN, Texas, May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asure Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software, announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.
Closed cloud-based and mobile sales with new clients Allstate, Ricoh for Thompson Hine, St David's Medical Center and BCBS of Massachusetts.
Accelerated client conversions from on premise to on demand solutions and product expansions, including upgrades to McKool Smith, P.C., Horizon Lines, Royal Bank of Canada, KPMG, State Street and the United States Army.
Made operational improvements to optimize costs:
Supply chain process improvements and improved COGS anticipated to drive 25% savings on certain hardware products. Based on projected 2015 sales units, this would save the company approximately $160,000.
Consolidated Framingham, MA and Warwick, RI offices to a centralized location in Dedham, MA, resulting in annual savings of $120,000; also opened new London office as a new European headquarters.
- Supply chain process improvements and improved COGS anticipated to drive 25% savings on certain hardware products. Based on projected 2015 sales units, this would save the company approximately $160,000.
Reorganized sales team to introduce a new National Account Sales Executive team consisting of seasoned sales executives focused on larger deals in the enterprise and global markets.
The company will start reporting backlog on a quarterly basis beginning Q2 2015. Asure Software defines backlog as sales bookings that have not yet turned into revenue or deferred revenue, including both repetitive and non-repetitive product lines. For repetitive products, one year's value is included in backlog.
- Introduced new product enhancements and touch panels with a sleeker design and enhanced features that make viewing and scheduling schedule space and resources easier.
Cloud and mobile bookings decreased by 22% from the first quarter 2014. Contributing to this decrease is the sales force reorganization described above and longer enterprise and global sales cycles correlated to larger average deal sizes.
Revenue for the quarter was $6.3 million as compared to $6.5 million in the first quarter 2014, a decrease of 3%.
Recurring revenue as a percent of total revenue was 79% for the quarter as compared to 76% in the first quarter of 2014.
Gross margin for the quarter was $4.7 million compared to $5.0 million in the first quarter 2014, a decrease of 6%.
EBITDA* excluding one-time items* for the quarter was approximately $970,000 compared to $1.14 million in the first quarter of 2014, a decrease of 15%.
First quarter net loss per share, excluding one-times*, was $(0.03) compared to $(0.02) in the first quarter of 2014.
- Cash flow provided by operating activities for the quarter was $546,000 compared to $71,000 in the first quarter 2014, an increase of 669%.
Pat Goepel, Chief Executive Officer of Asure Software commented, "The Q1 revenue decline was impacted by : 1) an inventory issue which delayed delivery of orders - we anticipate a catchup in Q2, and 2) increased enterprise sales, which typically involve phased implementations and which resulted in an increase to backlog as project work was not completed in the quarter. Although these items contributed to an otherwise seasonally slow Q1, we expect a much improved Q2. Further, we are seeing increased demand and interest for cloud-based and mobile solutions to manage enterprise and global hoteling, hot-desking, and alternative workforce solutions. The strategic investments the Company has made gives us confidence for growth as we move forward."
Brad Wolfe, Asure's Chief Financial Officer added, "The company is well-positioned to drive bookings growth, revenue and EBITDA moving forward. We expect improved performance and a resumption of continued quarter over quarter growth in Q2 and beyond. Accordingly, we reaffirm our 2015 guidance as stated in our fourth quarter 2014 earnings release."

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission: EBITDA and GAAP Net Income/(Loss) excluding one-time items. These supplemental financial measures are not required by GAAP, nor is the presentation of this financial information intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with Asure's earnings results as determined in accordance with GAAP. However, for the reasons described below, management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of Asure's business. Asure's management believes that it is important to provide investors with these same tools, together with reconciliation to GAAP, for evaluating the performance of Asure's business, as it may provide additional insight into Asure's financial results. See the "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income/(Loss) to Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Stock Compensation Expense (EBITDA)" and the "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income/(Loss) to Net Earnings Excluding One-Time Items" tables included in this press release for further information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, these measures are presented because management believes they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and others in the evaluation of companies. EBITDA is calculated by adding income taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization and stock compensation expense to net earnings. EBITDA is not defined under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings and other consolidated earnings data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of Asure's profitability.
Net Earnings Excluding One-Time Items is calculated by combining the company's GAAP Net Earnings, or earnings per share, with items that are one time in nature and are not expected to recur on a dollar or per share basis.
Free Cash Flow is computed by subtracting capital expenditures from cash flow from operations, each as determined in accordance with GAAP and as reflected in the statement of cash flows.
