(NASDAQ Capital Market: BDMS), operators of PERFECT TEETH®  dental practices, announced results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. For the year ended December 31, 2013, revenue increased $1.8 million, or 2.8%, to $64.1 million. The Company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and non-cash expense associated with stock-based compensation ("Adjusted EBITDA") decreased $805,000, or 16.0%, to $4.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to $5.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 decreased $718,000, or 89.0%, to $89,000 compared to $807,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Earnings per share decreased to $0.05 for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to $0.44 for the year ended December 31, 2012.  During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company remeasured and wrote down contingent liabilities by $196,000, which the Company recognized as other income, related to two offices that were acquired during 2009.  For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, revenue increased $335,000, or 2.3%, to $15.0 million. The Company's Adjusted EBITDA decreased $286,000, or 31.1%, to $633,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 compared to $919,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 increased $306,000 to $(333,000) compared to $(27,000) for the same period of 2012. Net loss per share increased to $(0.18) for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 compared to $(0.01) for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.  Since the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company has opened four de novo offices: in Tucson, Arizona in the fourth quarter of 2012; in Erie, Colorado in the fourth quarter of 2012; in Loveland, Colorado in July 2013; and in Monument, Colorado in December 2013. The Company has leased space for an additional de novo office in Fort Collins, Colorado, which is anticipated to open in the second quarter of 2014. The Company is also evaluating and negotiating leases for additional sites throughout its markets. Additionally, the Company has relocated and modernized one of its offices in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which opened in March 2014. During 2013, the Company completed remodels and/or relocations for two of its offices and converted eight additional offices to digital radiography. During December 2013, the Company consolidated the dental services of one of its offices, which it subsequently closed, into another office.  Fred Birner, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated that "While the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA in 2013 was disappointing, particularly in light of the increased revenue, it reflects our substantial investments in the Company, not only in capital projects as noted above but also personnel and training. We have yet to see the corresponding returns but believe we are doing the right thing for long-term growth and shareholder value. We believe to achieve our long-term growth objectives, we need to continue to convert and upgrade our offices to digital radiography and continue to open additional de novo offices. These activities obviously affect Adjusted EBITDA in the short-term. However, we believe the four de novo offices noted above are now moving in the right direction and making good progress."  During 2013, the Company had capital expenditures of approximately $5.0 million, paid approximately $1.6 million in dividends to its shareholders and increased total bank debt outstanding by approximately $1.6 million. The Company's outstanding bank debt increased because of the Company's development of de novo offices and its commitment to upgrading its existing offices through extensive remodels and office relocations and its continued commitment to converting its offices to digital radiography.  Birner Dental Management Services, Inc. acquires, develops, and manages geographically dense dental practice networks in select markets in Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. The Company currently manages 66 dental offices, of which 37 were acquired and 29 were de novo developments. The Company currently has 114 dentists. The Company operates its dental offices under the PERFECT TEETH® name.

However, the Company believes that it may be useful to an investor in evaluating the Company's ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. Investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure for determining the Company's operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, it may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income can be made by adding depreciation and amortization expense - Offices, depreciation and amortization expense – Corporate, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense, net and income tax expense to net income and subtracting change in fair value of contingent liabilities and gain from early extinguishment of debt as in the table below.
