Jagged Peak Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2014

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jagged Peak, Inc. (OTCBB:JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class e-commerce solutions and supply chain services, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 26, 2014.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Completed new $2.0 million term loan and extended $5.0 million credit facility to September 2016
  • Launched enhanced Multi-Language, Multi-Currency EDGE solution to accept payments from our client's European Union customers in their local currency of Euros or Pounds.
  • Launched partner fulfillment center based in the United Kingdom to ship orders throughout Europe.
  • Net income for the 13-week period increased from $279,300 to $371,600 compared to the same period last year
  • Total revenue for the 13-week period increased 34% to $15.1 million compared to the same period last year

Revenues increased $3,821,100, or 34%, to $15,141,000 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, as compared to $11,319,900 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013. This increase is the result of higher e-commerce order processing volume. Revenues from implementation of new client sites and on-going development for existing clients were consistent across these periods.

Cost of revenue, which consists primarily of labor, fulfillment operations and facilities costs, increased by $3,351,400, or 37%, to $12,333,700 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, as compared to $8,982,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 81% for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, as compared to 79% for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013. This increase is primarily related to the increase in fulfillment employees and contract labor needed to manage order growth and fulfillment-related costs incurred as part of the expanded warehouse space.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $247,800, or 13%, to $2,099,700 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, as compared to $1,851,900 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013. This increase was primarily related to increases in staff costs due to additional employees needed to grow client support teams and the rent of the expanded warehouse space.

Interest expense increased by $4,900 to $56,200 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, as compared to $51,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013.

The Company realized income before the provision for income taxes of $597,500 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, as compared to income before provision for income taxes of $458,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013.

Income tax expense was $225,900 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014 compared to an income tax expense of $179,000 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013. Differences between the taxable income and the effective tax rate used for 2014 and 2013, as compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate, are primarily due to permanent differences and taxes on foreign operations. During the quarter ended September 26, 2014 the Company evaluated the availability of the net operating loss carryforward balance. Based on this evaluation, the Company made a redetermination of amounts available and the related valuation allowance. During the quarter ended September 26, 2014 the Company has a remaining U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $1,326,600 which does not begin to expire until 2033. This net operating loss carry forward is fully reserved. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $1,962,300 which does not begin to expire until 2030. Management believes there will be sufficient future earnings to support the more than likely realization of deferred tax assets in excess of existing taxable temporary differences. The amount of deferred tax assets considered realizable, however, could be reduced in the near-term if estimates of future taxable income are reduced.

The Company realized net income of $371,600 for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014, compared with net income of $279,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013.

Basic income per share from operations for the 13-week period ended September 26, 2014 was $0.02 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.02 per weighted average share for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 39-week period ended September 26, 2014 was approximately $1,132,800 compared to approximately $1,665,200 for the 39-week period ended September 27, 2013. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash compensation. To provide consistent comparisons of year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA, the following reconciliation is provided:
