2014 Fiscal Year End Financial Results

Revenue: Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $63 million, an increase of approximately 25% over 2013 total revenue of $51 million. The increase is primarily due to the acquisitions we have completed and excludes approximately $1 million in sales from our IT commercial operating segment that was not recognized in the fourth quarter as a result of a shipment that was delayed until the first week of 2015. Total 2014 revenue included $52 million of IT commercial revenue, $5 million of IT government revenue, $4 million of eSolutions revenue, and $2 million of Location-based Technology revenue.

Gross Profit: Total gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $18.7 million, compared to $12.2 million in 2013. Gross margin for 2014 was approximately 30% compared to approximately 24% for 2013. The increase in gross margin is a result of our sales shifting to higher margin products from recent acquisitions and an increase in revenue from our data analytics and managed services in the IT commercial operating segment.

Net Loss: GAAP net loss attributable to the stockholders for 2014 was $7.5 million, compared to a net loss of $4.3 million for 2013. GAAP net loss per share for 2014 was $0.42, compared to a net loss per share of $0.35 for 2013. The increase in net loss was primarily attributable to the AirPatrol acquisition, amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation and other expenses related to being a public company.

Non-GAAP net loss1: 2014 pro-forma non-GAAP net loss was $2.6 million, compared to a non-GAAP net income of $132,000 for 2013. 2014 pro-forma non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.14, compared to a non-GAAP net income per share of $0.01 for 2013. Non-GAAP net loss or income per share is defined as net loss or income per basic and diluted share adjusted for non-cash items including stock based compensation, amortization of intangibles and one time charges including gain on the settlement of obligations, acquisition costs and the costs associated with the public offering.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA1: Total non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $1.9 million compared to income of $569,000 for 2013. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash stock-based compensation.

1 A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Forward-Looking Statements

All statements in this release that are not based on historical fact are “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and the provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. While management has based any forward looking statements included in this release on its current expectations, the information on which such expectations were based may change. These forward looking statements rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of our control, which could cause actual results to materially differ from such statements. Such risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to, the fluctuation of global economic conditions, the performance of management and our employees, our ability to obtain financing, competition, general economic conditions and other factors that are to be detailed in our periodic and current reports available for review at www.sec.gov. Furthermore, we operate in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment where new and unanticipated risks may arise. Accordingly, investors should not place any reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. We disclaim any intention to, and undertake no obligation to, update or revise forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes that certain financial measures not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) are useful measures of operations. EBIDTA, Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share are non-GAAP measures. Sysorex defines “EBITDA” as net income (loss) before interest, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as the matrix in which it manages the business and Sysorex defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash stock-based compensation. Sysorex defines “pro forma net loss per share” as GAAP net loss per share adjusted for stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and one time non-recurring charges such as acquisition and offering costs.

Management provides Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share measures so that investors will have the same financial information that management uses, which may assist investors in assessing Sysorex’s performance on a period-over-period basis. Adjusted EBITDA or pro forma net loss per share is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss) or any other measure of performance under GAAP, or to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Sysorex’s results as reported under GAAP.
