ATLANTA, Aug. 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global provider of high-performance Linux® and storage solutions, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2016.
“We are pleased to report our third consecutive quarter of revenue growth, finishing out the fiscal year strongly with Q4 revenue of $17.4M, an increase of 12.8% quarter-over-quarter and more than 26% compared to the same quarter last year,” said Derek Elder, President and CEO of Concurrent. “In the fourth quarter, we grew our Aquari™ software-defined storage business and expanded our customer list to include 6 of the top 25 North American multiple-system operators. We also sold our high performance Linux operating system to several new customers and extended our success with a top 5 North American cable operator to complete a nationwide displacement of a video-streaming competitor.”
Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights
Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was $17.4 million, compared with $15.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 and $13.8 million for the same period in fiscal 2015. The fourth quarter 2015 comparable included $0.7 million in revenues from the multi-screen video analytics product line that was sold in September 2015.
Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was 63.4%, compared with 51.5% in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 and 56.5% for the same period in fiscal 2015.
The company reported a net loss of $(12.9) million, or $(1.40) loss per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with a net loss of $(1.2) million, or $(0.13) loss per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 and a net loss of $(0.9) million, or $(0.10) loss per diluted share, in the same period in fiscal 2015. The net loss in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was due to the company’s income tax provision, which is comprised almost entirely of non‑cash income tax expense due to the reestablishment of a full valuation allowance on our U.S. net operating losses.
Adjusted EBITDA was $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(1.3) million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 and an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(0.3) million in the same period in fiscal 2015. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measurements” below for more information on the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, including a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, which we believe to be the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP.

The net loss in fiscal 2016 was due to the company’s income tax provision, which is comprised almost entirely of non‑cash income tax expense due to the reestablishment of a full valuation allowance on our U.S. net operating losses.
Adjusted EBITDA was $0.3 million in fiscal 2016 compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million in fiscal 2015. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measurements” below for more information on the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, including a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, which we believe to be the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP.
The company continued to pay quarterly dividends of $0.12 per share in each of the four quarters of fiscal 2016. At June 30, 2016, Concurrent had working capital of $22.6 million including cash and cash equivalents of $20.3 million. The company has no debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements
To supplement the company’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this news release provides information concerning the company’s Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in tables immediately following the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
For purposes of this news release, Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP net income, less interest income and other income (expense), net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, share-based compensation expense and gain on the sale of assets. The company considers Adjusted EBITDA important to understanding its historical results and identifying current and future trends impacting its business. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare the company’s performance to that of prior periods and evaluate the company’s financial and operating results on a consistent basis from period to period. The company also believes this measure, when viewed in combination with the company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends. The adjustments to the company’s GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the company’s underlying operational results, trends and performance. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash flow for management’s discretionary use. We believe that the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors because securities analysts, noteholders and other investors use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess our operating performance across periods on a consistent basis and to evaluate the relative risk of an investment in our securities.
Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, however, including the following:
- Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our tax expense or any cash requirements to pay income taxes; and
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations, but may nonetheless have a material impact on our results of operations.
The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to the company’s financial results determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies, including other companies in our industry.
