OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global (Nasdaq:TMNG), a premier provider of professional services and technical solutions to the global leaders in the communications, digital media, and technology industries, reported financial results for its 2012 third quarter ended September 29, 2012.

"TMNG Global achieved profitability in the third quarter, on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, in-line with the goals we outlined earlier in 2012. This success was achieved through our focus on stabilizing our revenue base while reducing our expense structure and maximizing efficiency. On behalf of the entire executive committee, I am proud of our accomplishments thus far in 2012," said Donald Klumb, CEO of TMNG Global. "By improving our operational execution, we also further strengthened our balance sheet in the quarter, which has a healthy cash position of $10.7 million and net working capital of $17.9 million. Now that the foundation is in place, our main objectives are to drive growth and enhance our competitive position, while remaining disciplined and focused on sustaining profitability."

Financial Results for the Thirteen Weeks Ended September 29, 2012

Revenues in the third quarter of 2012 were $12.7 million, compared to $15.5 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $13.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. During the quarter, TMNG's gross margin was 38.6%, compared with 35.9% in the third quarter of 2011 and 37.4% in the second quarter of 2012. The gross margin increase reflects continued improvements in operational efficiency and a favorable services and solutions mix.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $6.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. This decline demonstrates the Company's success in significantly reducing its selling, general and administrative expense structure.

TMNG Global reported a net income of $0.1 million on a GAAP basis, or $0.02 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012, a significant improvement from the net loss of ($0.8) million or ($0.11) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011 and the net loss of ($0.4) million or ($0.06) per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012. After adjusting for the after tax impact of depreciation and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $0.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share during the third quarter of 2012. The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss was ($0.5) million, or ($0.07) per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and ($0.2) million, or ($0.02) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012.

Financial Results for the Thirty-Nine Weeks Ended September 29, 2012

For the thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2012, revenues were $40.1 million, compared with $49.5 million in the comparable period of fiscal year 2011. TMNG Global's gross margin was 37.6% during the thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2012, flat with the comparable period of fiscal year 2011.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $16.4 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2012, compared to $20.8 million in the comparable period of fiscal year 2011.

Net loss for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2012 was ($1.5) million or ($0.20) per diluted share, compared with a net loss of ($3.0) million or ($0.43) per diluted share in the comparable period of fiscal year 2011. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss, adjusted for the after tax impact of net realized losses on auction rate securities, depreciation and amortization expense, and share-based compensation, was approximately ($0.8) million, or ($0.11) per diluted share, for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2012. The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 1, 2011 was ($1.4) million or ($0.19) per diluted share.

In addition to reporting net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share on a GAAP basis, this press release contains certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the schedule entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss)" that accompanies this press release. In making these non-GAAP adjustments, the Company took into account certain non-cash expenses and benefits, including tax effects as applicable, and the impact of certain items that are generally not expected to be on-going in nature or that are unrelated to the Company's core operations. Management believes non-GAAP financial information provides a useful basis for evaluating underlying business performance, but should not be considered in isolation and is not a substitute for GAAP financial information. The Company believes that providing such adjusted results allows investors and other users of the Company's financial statements to better understand TMNG Global's comparative operating performance for the periods presented.

TMNG Global's management uses the non-GAAP financial measure in its own evaluation of the Company's performance, particularly when comparing performance to the prior year's period and on a sequential basis. TMNG Global's non-GAAP measure may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even if similar terms are used to identify such measures. Although TMNG Global's management believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating the performance of its business, TMNG Global acknowledges that items excluded from such measure have a material impact on the Company's net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, management uses non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP results. Investors and other users of our financial information should also consider the above factors when evaluating TMNG Global's results.
