                XRS Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results

Net income of $0.3 million drives free cash flow of $1.6 million for the first
quarter of fiscal 2013

PR Newswire

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 7, 2013

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XRS Corporation (formerly Xata
Corporation), (NASDAQ:XRSC) reported its results for its fiscal 2013 first
quarter ended December 31, 2012.

The Company reported net income to common shareholders for the first quarter
of fiscal 2013 of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net
loss to common shareholders of $1.7 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for
the comparable period in fiscal 2012. Total revenue was $14.2 million for the
quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to $16.6 million for the comparable
period in fiscal 2012. Further highlights for the quarter include:

  o Growth in Turnpike software revenue of 19 percent year-over-year drove
    total software revenue to $11.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal
    2013.
  o Fiscal 2013 first quarter software revenue accounted for approximately 83
    percent of total revenue, compared to 70 percent percent for the same
    period of fiscal 2012 contributing to a 15 percentage point improvement in
    overall margins.
  o The Company acquired 109 new customers in the first quarter of fiscal
    2013, all of whom selected the Turnpike solution.
  o Net income of $0.3 million contributed to free cash flow of $1.6 million
    for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to negative free cash flow
    of $0.7 million for the same period in fiscal 2012.

"We are pleased with the first quarter financial performance. We are also
encouraged by the progress we are making in the testing of our new XRS mobile
platform which is now in its beta phase," said Jay Coughlan, chairman,
president and CEO of XRS Corporation. "Customers are eager to begin using the
XRS solution, and we anticipate rollout of this new mobile solution in the
spring of 2013."

For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, selling, general and administrative
expenses decreased to $5.5 million compared to $6.1 million for the first
quarter of fiscal 2012. The intangible asset impairment and business
realignment events which occurred in the third quarter of fiscal 2012
contributed to a reduction in amortization and personnel expenses,
respectively, driving the fiscal 2013 favorability.

Research and development expenses were $3.1 million and $3.5 million for the
first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively, or 21 percent of revenue.
Research and development expenses reflect the Company's continued investment
in the successful development and roll out of the new XRS mobile solution.

The Company reported non-GAAP earnings of $2.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted
share for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to non-GAAP earnings of
$0.5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the same period in fiscal 2012,
an increase of $1.7 million. The increase in non-GAAP earnings is a reflection
of improved margins and a reduced cost structure.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company used cash generated from
operations to pay down all outstanding debt facilities, resulting in a
debt-free balance sheet as of December 31, 2012 as compared to debt of $2.3
million recorded as of September 30, 2012.  In addition, the Company generated
positive free cash flow of $1.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013,
compared to negative free cash flow of $0.7 million in the comparable period
in fiscal 2012, resulting in an improvement of $0.7 million in working
capital, which was $10.3 million at December 31, 2012.

"Looking ahead, we remain focused on the successful launch of our XRS mobile
solution, as well as continuing to serve our existing customer base to ensure
that our solutions are able to meet their needs now and into the future,"
Coughlan said. "As we move the new solution to market in fiscal 2013, the
Company will also continue to strive for operational effectiveness."

Non-GAAP vs. GAAP Financial Measures

To assist investors in understanding the Company's financial performance, the
Company supplements the financial results that are generated in accordance
with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or
GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP earnings, non-GAAP
earnings per diluted share, working capital and free cash flow. These non-GAAP
financial measures are useful to investors for evaluating the Company's
historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance
relative to competitors. Management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial
measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its ongoing business
operations and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP financial measures
are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting
future period performance. Management believes that these non- GAAP financial
measures reflect an additional way of analyzing aspects of the Company's
ongoing operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more
complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business.

The specific non-GAAP financial measures, along with a reconciliation to the
nearest comparable GAAP measures and further explanation of their usefulness
to investors can be found at the end of this release.

Footnotes to GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

(Unaudited)

The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or
as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures. The method we use to produce
non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the
methods used by other companies. The methods of calculation and explanations
of the adjustments to the most comparable GAAP measures are set forth below:

Non-GAAP Earnings

This measure provides a supplemental view of earnings trends. Non-GAAP
earnings excludes depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, net
interest expense, preferred stock dividends and deemed dividends, income
taxes, acquisition and financing related costs and litigation settlement costs
from GAAP net income (loss) to common shareholders. We believe our investors
benefit from understanding these exclusions when comparing current to
historical results from operations.

Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share

We believe investors benefit by understanding the Company's non-GAAP operating
performance as reflected in a per share calculation as a way of measuring
non-GAAP operating performance by ownership in the Company. Non-GAAP earnings
per diluted share is based on non-GAAP earnings, as defined above, divided by
the sum of the weighted average common and dilutive common shares equivalents,
such as options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, warrants or
convertible preferred stock, assuming they were exercised or converted into
common stock that then shared in the non-GAAP earnings of the Company, as
defined by GAAP. Non-GAAP loss per diluted share is based on non-GAAP loss, as
defined above, divided by only the weighted average number of common shares
outstanding for the period, as defined by GAAP. The non-GAAP loss per diluted
common share is equal to basic non-GAAP loss per common share because the
effect of including such securities or obligations would be antidilutive. We
believe that these exclusions provide investors a useful view of current
operations when comparing current to historical non-GAAP diluted earnings per
share.

Working Capital

Working capital represents current assets, less current liabilities, excluding
the current portion of deferred revenue, net of deferred costs. We believe
working capital provides investors with an additional view of the Company's
liquidity and ability to repay current obligations.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities reduced by
net cash used in investing activities. We believe free cash flow provides
investors insight into the Company's ability to generate cash to support
operating and investing activities.
