We believe that our third consecutive quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA is indicative of a sustainable trend. We further believe that the markets we have targeted will enhance our ability to weather the government sequestration issues. As always, we remain focused on long-term growth and improving shareholder value." The Company's FY13 Q3 results reflect that quarterly revenues increased 6.7% over the third quarter of FY12. Kathryn JohnBull, DLH CFO, added: "Our third quarter results reflect our successful efforts to control costs while delivering world-class support to our customers and partners. While there are many risk factors that we continue to manage through, we believe we have refined our business model to support our ability to consistently deliver positive adjusted EBITDA. This quarter notably marks three consecutive quarters of revenue growth. Additionally, the Company's gross profit has increased 24.2% over the previous year, based on improved contract performance and cost management." Results for Three Months Ended June30, 2013 Revenues for the three months ended June30, 2013 and 2012 were $13.5million and $12.6million, respectively, which represents an increase of $0.9million or 6.7%, despite extended government delays in major awards. The increase in revenue is due primarily to expansion on current programs. Gross profit for the three months ended June30, 2013 and 2012 was $2.0million and $1.6million, respectively, which represents an increase of $0.4million or 24.2%. As a percentage of revenue, gross profit was 14.7% and 12.6%, for the three months ended June30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.The gross profit rate benefited from improved contract performance and cost management. Total G&A expenses for the three months ended June30, 2013 and 2012 were $1.8million and $2.2million, respectively, a decrease of $0.4 million or 18.0%. As a percent of revenue, G&A expenses were 13.5% and 17.6% for the three months ended June30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. This improvement was due principally to CFO transition costs of $0.2 million in the prior year period. Additionally, cost reduction initiatives helped to improve operating margins as revenue grew. Income from operations for the three months ended June30, 2013 was approximately $158,000 as compared to loss from operations for the three months ended June30, 2012 of approximately $625,000. The improvement in income from operations results from improved gross margin and decreased general and administrative expenses described above. Net income for the three months ended June30, 2013 was $68,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, as compared to loss from continuing operations of ($568,000) or ($0.09) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June30, 2012. This improvement is due to increased gross profit and constraints on spending as described in the preceding paragraphs. Earnings (Loss) Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") adjusted for other non-cash charges ("Adjusted EBITDA"(1)) for the three months ended June30, 2013 was $228,000 as compared to ($498,000) for the three months ended June30, 2012, due principally to the increased gross profit and reduced expenses described above. Results for Nine Months Ended June30, 2013 Revenues for the nine months ended June30, 2013 and 2012 were $39.5 million and $36.7 million respectively, which represents an increase of $2.8 million or 7.4% over the prior fiscal period. The increase in revenue is due primarily to expansion on current programs as well as having the full nine month impact of new business awards received during the prior year period. Gross profit for the nine months ended June30, 2013 and 2012 was $5.5 million and $4.5 million, respectively, which represents an increase of $1.0 million or 24.2% over the prior fiscal year period. As a percentage of revenue, gross profit was 14.0% and 12.1% for the nine months ended June30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The gross profit rate benefited from improved contract performance and cost management. Total G&A expenses for the nine months ended June30, 2013 and 2012 were $5.5 million and $5.9 million respectively, a decrease of $0.4 million or 6.7%. As a percent of revenue, G&A expenses were 13.8% and 15.9% for the nine months ended June30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The year-over-year reduction in G&A expenses is due to CFO transition expenses of $0.2 million in the prior year period. Additionally, cost reduction initiatives helped to improve operating margins as revenue grew. Income from operations for nine months ended June30, 2013 was approximately $74,000 as compared to loss from operations for the nine months ended June30, 2012 of approximately $1,399,000. The improvement in income from operations results from the same factors as discussed for the three-month period ended June30, 2013. Net loss for the nine months ended June30, 2013 was ($0.17million), or ($0.02) per basic and diluted share, as compared to net loss of ($1.67million), or ($0.27) per basic and diluted share for the nine months ended June30, 2012. This improvement is due to increased gross profit, constraints on spending, and reduced other expenses as described in the preceding paragraphs. Earnings (Loss) Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") adjusted for other non-cash charges ("Adjusted EBITDA"(1)) for the nine months ended June30, 2013 was $337,000 as compared to ($1,003,000) for the nine months ended June30, 2012, due principally to the increased gross profit and reduced expenses described above. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) to net loss from continuing operations 1.We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental non-GAAP measure of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus (i)interest and other expenses, net, (ii)provision for or benefit from income taxes, if any, (iii)depreciation and amortization, and (iv)G&A expenses - equity grants. This non-GAAP measure of our performance is used by management to conduct and evaluate its business during its regular review of operating results for the periods presented. Management and the Company's Board utilize this non-GAAP measure to make decisions about the use of the Company's resources, analyze performance between periods, develop internal projections and measure management performance. We believe that this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's ongoing operating and financial results and understanding how such results compare with the Company's historical performance. By providing this non-GAAP measure, as a supplement to GAAP information, we believe we are enhancing investors' understanding of our business and our results of operations. This non-GAAP financial measure is limited in its usefulness and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, USGAAP financial measures. Further, this non-GAAP measure may be unique to the Company, as it may be different from the definition of non-GAAP measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA with net loss is as follows: Forthethreemonths ended Fortheninemonths ended June 30, June 30, 2013 2012 2013 2012 Net income (loss) $ 68 $ (568 ) $ (169 ) $ (1,672 ) (i)Interest and 90 (57 ) 243 273 other expenses (net) (ii)Provision for - - - - taxes (iii)Amortization 30 37 95 87 and depreciation (iv)G&A expenses 40 90 168 309 -equity grants EBITDA adjusted for $ 228 $ (498 ) $ 337 $ (1,003 ) other non-cash charges Conference Call and Webcast Details Interested parties may participate in the conference call on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 11:00 AM EST by dialing 1-888-953-6857; international callers dial 1-617-399-3481 (passcode 28728748) approximately five to 10 minutes prior to the call.
