A reconciliation and description of non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables following this news release.

“We are encouraged with the improved performance in the quarter, on a non-GAAP basis, as it demonstrates the progress being made as evidenced by the revenue growth in both our Hospitality and Government segments. Within our Hospitality segment, we have continued to experience success with our strategy of increasing our revenue generated through sales to smaller chains and independent restaurants, a strategy further facilitated by our acquisition of Brink Software in September of last year. Partially offsetting the revenue growth was a reduction in volume from certain large restaurant customers resulting from the completion of technology rollouts in prior periods. To mitigate the revenue volatility created by our tier one customers, we are committed to our revenue diversification strategy and are encouraged by the recent market acceptance and adoption of our cloud technologies,” commented PAR President & CEO Ronald J. Casciano. Furthermore, our Government business continued to perform well resulting from an increase in task orders on our large ISR contracts.

Casciano concluded, “Fiscal 2014 was a year of transition for PAR as new Directors were added to our Board and several changes were made to our management structure. We have recommitted the Company to focus and execute upon our strategic goals to reestablish PAR as a consistent performing technology solutions company.”

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP, which refers to financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as defined in the reconciliation table above, are provided herein because management uses such measures in evaluating the results of the continuing operations of the Company and believes this information provides investors better insight into underlying business trends and performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The adjustments for the three months ended December 31, primarily relate to the Company’s stock compensation expense and other severance related charges included within the Company’s operating expenses. During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company recorded severance and other related charges of $324,000, acquisition related costs of $71,000, amortization of acquired intangible assets of $248,000 and equity based compensation charges of $198,000. In addition, the Company recorded income tax expense of $1,969,000 primarily associated with the repatriation of earnings from a foreign, wholly owned subsidiary.
