Jagged Peak Announces Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2015

TAMPA, Fla., May 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jagged Peak, Inc. (OTCBB:JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class e-commerce software solutions and supply chain services, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 27, 2015.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Total revenue for the 13-week period increased 15% to $16.2 million, as compared to $14.1 million for the same period last year.
  • Net income for the 13-week period increased to $120.7 thousand, as compared to $60.2 thousand for the same period last year.

Revenues increased $2,060,600, or 15%, to $16,151,300 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, as compared to $14,090,700 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014. 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 $971,600, or 8%, to $12,745,400 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, as compared to $11,773,800 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 79% for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, as compared to 84% for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014. This decrease is primarily related to improved management of fulfillment labor utilizing less full time employees.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $1,036,500, or 50%, to $3,094,500 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, as compared to $2,058,000 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014. This increase was primarily related to accelerated hiring of experienced managers to support our current and expected growth.

Interest expense increased by $13,400 to $60,200 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, as compared to $46,800 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014.

The Company realized income before the provision for income taxes of $203,500 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, as compared to income before provision for income taxes of $119,300 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014.

Income tax expense was $82,800 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015 compared to an income tax expense of $59,100 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014. Differences between the taxable income and the effective tax rate used for 2015 and 2014, as compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate, are primarily due to permanent differences and taxes on foreign operations. As of the quarter ended March 27, 2015 the Company has a remaining U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $1,370,700, which will expire between 2031 and 2033. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $2,232,300 which does not begin to expire until 2029. 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 $120,700 for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015, compared with net income of $60,200 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014.

Other income and expense consists of foreign currency gain or losses on transactions. Other comprehensive income and loss is the result of changes in the value of the swap agreement and foreign currency translation gain or losses.

Basic income per share from operations for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015 was $0.01 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.00 per weighted average share for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 13-week period ended March 27, 2015 was approximately $668,100 compared to approximately $379,500 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014.
