The Company reported a net loss of ($296,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to net income of $3,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was ($85,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to $317,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. See the section entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss).

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $14,040,000 compared to $14,858,000 in the same period of 2015. Net loss for the first six months of 2016 was ($496,000) compared to net income of $7,000 in the same period in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was ($57,000) in the first six months of 2016 compared to $663,000 in the same period of 2015.

Shannon Zimmerman, CEO of Sajan, commented on the Company’s second quarter results:
“The translation business has always been project-oriented and subject to the timing and nature of the translation needs of our customers. During 2016, we have devoted substantial sales and marketing activities directed towards obtaining new customers and increased business from our current customers. These efforts have included adding a channel partner program, changing the focus of our VP of Life Sciences from operational towards winning new international Life Science customers, and the establishment of a Global Solutions Architect program ('GSA') within the company. The GSA is a dedicated team that will promote the customer experience and is designed to win more business. Although these initiatives resulted in higher costs during the second quarter of 2016 compared to 2015, we believe that along with continued technological improvements to Transplicity, our translation technology platform, the actions and investments will result in future revenue growth.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures – Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA 2016 2015 2016 2015

Adjusted EBITDA$(85) $317 $(57) $663

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by taking net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP, and adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. We believe that this non-GAAP measure of financial results provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Our management uses this non-GAAP measure to compare our performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and for budgeting and planning purposes. This measure is also used in financial reports prepared for management and our board of directors. We believe that the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Our management does not consider this non-GAAP measure in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of this non-GAAP financial measure is that it excludes significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our consolidated financial statements. In addition, it is subject to inherent limitations as it reflects the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining this non-GAAP financial measure. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents this non-GAAP financial measure in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
