Michael Schrader, COO, Top Image Systems, commented, "We delivered strong top line and bottom line performance this quarter, increasing revenue by 19% year over year to $8.1 million. We expect this double-digit revenue growth and continued margin improvement to be sustainable moving forward. The ability to generally fund operations from our cash flow has enabled us to earmark the money from our recent capital raise to pursue strategic inorganic opportunities and we are actively pursuing subscription-based, growing and accretive assets. During this process, we will make every effort to maximize shareholder value on any investment we make."

Mr. Schrader continued, "The organic growth that resulted in increased revenues derived from increased sales of our growth engine solutions: Mobile Imaging, ERP (INVOICE) and DMR (Digital Mailroom). Our business is highly defensible as our customers are large, blue chip companies with strong balance sheets that consider our solutions critical to their business success. Both our sales pipeline and our win rates have increased. In addition, our new SaaS business model is helping us win additional business and increase revenue predictability and visibility quarter to quarter. We continue to aggressively pursue sales and partnership opportunities in the U.S. For mobile imaging in particular, we are successfully engaging and landing industry-leading customers and partners thanks to our robust and flexible mobile imaging platform, which enables not only the mobile front end but also a complete back end platform, differentiating us from our competition. In fact, we find ourselves competing against first to market mobile providers in only a small percentage of our business, as we offer an open, extendible platform that they do not have. This important competitive advantage uniquely positions us to thrive in this space."

Professional Services revenues for the first quarter were $2.0 million, compared to $2.4 million for first quarter last year.

Gross Profit: Gross profit for the first quarter was $5.2 million, compared to $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 37%. Gross margin for the first quarter was 64%, compared to 56% in the first quarter last year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes non-GAAP financial measures, including, without limitation, Non-GAAP Operating Income (which excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expenses) and Non-GAAP Net Income (which excludes the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation expenses). Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures in the tables entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" below.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to TIS' GAAP results provided in the attached financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, and they are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The attached tables reconcile each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. TIS' management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding TIS' performance by excluding the impact of certain charges and gains that may not be indicative of TIS' core business operating results.

These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons to TIS' historical performance and its competitors' operating results.
