  ModusLink Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter of Fiscal 2014  Business Wire  WALTHAM, Mass. -- June 9, 2014  ModusLink Global Solutions^™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK) today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2014 ended April 30, 2014. Results for that period are summarized in the following paragraphs. For a full discussion of the results, please see the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q, which can be accessed through www.moduslink.com.  Third Quarter Financial Summary    *Net revenue of $173.3 million compared to $173.0 million in the third     quarter of fiscal 2013   *Gross margin of 9.1% compared to 8.9% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013   *SG&A expenses of $17.1 million, a 11.3% reduction compared to the third     quarter of fiscal 2013   *Operating loss of $5.1 million compared to operating loss of $6.8 million     in the third quarter of fiscal 2013   *Net loss of $9.5 million, or $0.18 per share, compared with net loss of     $8.3 million, or $0.17 per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2013   *Adjusted EBITDA of $3.4 million compared to $2.2 million in the third     quarter of fiscal 2013  ModusLink reported net revenue of $173.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $173.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The change in net revenue was primarily driven by increased revenue from an aftermarket services program in the Americas related to the repair and refurbishment of mobile devices, and revenue growth from programs for a consumer electronics client, which primarily benefited results in the Americas and Europe. Revenue growth from those programs was partially offset by lower revenues from certain programs for clients in the computing, software and communications markets.  Operating loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $5.1 million, compared to an operating loss of $6.8 million in the third quarter of the previous year. The improvement in operating loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was primarily driven by a more favorable revenue mix, lower professional fees and improved operational cost efficiency. Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $9.5 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to a net loss of $8.3 million, or $0.17 per share.  For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, Adjusted EBITDA was $3.4 million compared to $2.2 million for the same period in fiscal 2013. EBITDA represents earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding certain items. Please refer to the non-GAAP information and table reconciling the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA to its GAAP net income/(loss) below.

Non-GAAP Information  In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to assess its performance. EBITDA represents earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization.We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the effects ofprofessional fees associated with our SEC inquiry and financial restatement, strategic alternatives and other professional fees, executive severance and employee retention, restructuring, share-based compensation, impairments of goodwill and long-lived assets, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses, net, other non-operating gains or losses, net, equity in losses of affiliates and impairments, and discontinued operations.  We believe that providing Adjusted EBITDA to investors is useful as this measure provides important supplemental information of our performance to investors and permits investors and management to evaluate the operating performance of our core supply chain business. We use Adjusted EBITDA in internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors, determining a component of incentive compensation for executive officers and other key employees based on operating performance and evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our core supply chain business. We believe that the Adjusted EBITDA financial measure assists in providing an enhanced understanding of our underlying operational measures to manage the core supply chain business, to evaluate performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals. We believe that these non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in our financial and operational decision making.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies.  A table reconciling the Company’s EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to its GAAP net income/(loss) is included in this release.
