Sysorex (NASDAQ:SYRX) , a global leader in big data analytics and location-based mobile solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

First Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Q1 2015 Revenue of $14.1 Million
  • Q1 2015 Gross Margin of 29%
  • Q1 2015 GAAP net loss of $0.15 per share
  • Proforma Non-GAAP net loss1 of $0.08 per share
  • Q1 2015 Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA1 loss of $1.3 Million

“We continue to make progress in growing our higher margin services business and in strengthening our technology portfolio specifically around data analytics,” said Nadir Ali, CEO of Sysorex Global Holdings Corp. “We have also been awarded several government contract awards this year that support our overall business strategy and revenue base,” he continued.

Revenue: Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $14.1 million compared to $16.3 million for the comparable period in the prior year. The $2.2 million decrease in revenue, or approximately 13%, was attributable primarily to an unusually large order in our Storage and Computing segment fulfilled during the three months ended March 31, 2014 that was not repeated in the three months ended March 31, 2015. Total first quarter 2015 revenue included $143,000 of Sysorex Mobile, IoT & Big Data Products revenue, $10.3 million of Storage and Computing revenue, $973,000 of SaaS revenue and $2.7 million of Professional Services revenue.

Gross Profit: Total gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $4 million compared to $4.4 million for the comparable period in the prior year. The gross profit margin for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was approximately 29% compared to approximately 27% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The increase in gross margin is a result of shifting our sales to higher margin products and an increase in revenue from our data analytics and managed services in the Professional Services segment.

Net Loss: GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $2.9 million compared to $780,000 for the comparable period in the prior year. GAAP net loss per share for the three months ending March 31, 2015 was $0.15, compared to a net loss per share of $0.05 for the comparable period in the prior year. This increase in net loss of $2.1 million was primarily attributable to the inclusion of AirPatrol’s operating expenses during the first quarter 2015, and the additional professional fees and administrative costs associated with being a public company.

Non-GAAP net loss1: Pro-forma non-GAAP net loss1 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $1.6 million compared to non-GAAP net loss of $131,000 for the comparable period in the prior year. Pro-forma non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $0.08 compared to $0.01 for the comparable period in the prior year. 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 acquisition costs and the costs associated with the public offering.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA1: Total Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was a loss of $1.3 million compared to income of $51,000 in the comparable period in the prior year. 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.
