Total revenue in the third quarter of 2012 was $6.8 million, compared to $10.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. Total booked sales for the third quarter were $7.7 million, compared to $12.2 million in the third quarter of 2011. The net loss in the third quarter of 2012 was $(2.2) million, or $(0.10) per share, compared to a net loss of $(1.2) million, or $(0.07) per share, in the third quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA (which includes the restructuring charge as an adjustment) was a loss of $(957) thousand in the third quarter of 2012 compared to a loss of $(453) thousand in the same period of 2011. "Rapid customer transition to our new on demand platform (MySciLEARN) continues with over 70% converted as we established a record peak of over 85,000 student training sessions per day," stated Bob Bowen, Chairman and CEO. "In the third quarter of 2012 we achieved our goal of realigning our cost structures, putting us in a position of being cash flow positive in 2013 on much more conservative sales targets. Our employees have been terrific and their commitment to our important mission is inspiring." Third Quarter 2012 Metrics: oK-12 transaction volume increased 9% over third quarter 2011 oThe number of active school sites increased approximately 11% year over year to almost 3,400 sites oSubscription revenue increased 127% over third quarter 2011 oAs of September 30, 2012, 70% of the Company's active K-12 school sites are accessing Fast ForWord or Reading Assistant via the new on-demand, SaaS platform known as MySciLEARN, up from about 51% at the end of June, 2012 oAs of September 30, 2012 the number of employees was 146 compared to 229 on June 30, 2012 "The above metrics demonstrate good progress on moving to our new SaaS business model; however, booked sales and revenue do not yet reflect this progress because of the lower average price for a subscription license compared to a perpetual license," stated Bob Bowen.

booked sales is a good indicator of current activity.The table above shows the reconciliation of booked sales, revenue, and changes in deferred revenue.

We also believe that Adjusted EBITDA will be useful in allowing investors to compare our performance with that of other companies.The table above shows a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the closest GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis for our results as reports under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has the following differences from net loss, the closest GAAP measure: ^1 Provision for income taxes is a required expense for all businesses. We excluded it inorder to allow investors to evaluate our operating results without regard to our tax obligations. ^2 Because we have borrowed and invested money, interest income and expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate profits and cash flows. We excluded interest income and expense in order to allow investors to evaluate our operating results without regard to our financing methods. Other income and expense includes foreign exchange gain and loss as well as gain and loss on disposal of fixed assets, all of which we believe are not indicative of our core operating performance and are not meaningful in comparison to our past operating performance. ^3 Depreciation and amortization are necessary elements of our costs and our ability to generate profits; and the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. See below for allocation of non-cash charges. ^4 Stock-based compensation consists of expenses for employee stock options and awards and purchase rights under our employee stock purchase plan. We exclude stock-based compensation because we believe it is not an indicator of the performance of our core operations. See below for allocation of non-cash charges. ^5 Change in fair value of warrant is the change in the fair value of our common stock warrants which were issued on March 28, 2012. The fair value was estimated using the Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model, which requires the input of highly subjective assumptions as determined by the Company's management which we believe is not indicative of our core operating performance and is not meaningful in comparison to our past operating performance. ^6 Restructuring charge consists of severance and related benefits incurred as related to reduction in force completed in the third quarter 2012 which we believe is not indicative of our core operating performance and is not meaningful in comparison to our past operating performance. ^7 Impairment charge consisting of a write off of an investment which was deemed to be impaired as of June 30, 2012 due to the financial condition of the company with which this investment was for.
