“I am pleased to report improved fourth quarter and year end results. Our restaurant technology business continues to see renewed strength from our Tier 1 customers, evidenced by the 6.6% product revenue growth in the fourth quarter when compared to the same period 2014. We are seeing positive momentum with our cloud solutions, Brink POS® and SureCheck® within restaurants and retail/grocery enterprises and are encouraged by the growth in software and software related revenues in the quarter and for the year,” commented Karen E. Sammon, PAR’s President & CEO. “PAR Government exceeded our internal plan for profit in the quarter while reporting lower revenues due to the higher than normal amount of task orders received in the fourth quarter 2014 that were not duplicated this year. Our Government business ended the year with several new contract awards in the quarter and an improved backlog that provides a solid base for our 2016 plan.”

Sammon continued, “2015 was an important and transformational year for our Company. Over the last twelve months we broadened our efficiencies as a company, continued to innovate with new technical solutions, strengthened our competitive position, divested an underperforming business unit and delivered improved results to our stakeholders. As our Company’s new CEO, I am pleased with the operational, strategic and financial progress made by PAR throughout last year and remain keenly focused on enhancing shareholder value.”
