“We continue to focus on expanding our customer portfolio with enterprise restaurant organizations that range in size all the way into the thousands of sites.  These are innovative restaurant companies looking to increase their in-store effectiveness and efficiencies through the use of technology; specifically, cloud software.   This is the sweet spot for our Brink POS solution and brings unparalleled value and features that resonate well within this market.  Our second quarter performance included 764 new customer deployments on Brink POS and a 40% increase in SaaS revenues from last year’s second quarter,” commented PAR Technology’s CEO & President, Savneet Singh.  “We have begun creating revenue streams within our Brink partner ecosystem that include a large number of companies that benefit from a technology relationship with PAR. We view these partnerships as accretive to our internal sales efforts. The financial impact of these relationships is still in its infancy and we are increasing our efforts to expand these partnerships when beneficial to our Company.  Correspondingly, we are exploring strategic acquisition candidates that will expand our addressable market.  We are confident that increasing the number of strategic partners along with targeted acquisitions are excellent pathways to expand our customer base and substantially grow our business.”

Mr. Singh added “The main initiative impacting near-term results is our substantial investments in Brink which are specifically focused on accelerating our development capabilities. We look at this as investment spend with a strong return profile and we will continue to push down this path.  We continue to be challenged by reduced year-over-year revenues in our hardware business due to the inherent cyclical nature of this industry.  However, our focus on cost reductions and capital returns has allowed this business to remain profitable.  We will continue to take the necessary steps to address the challenges and impact of the current business environment regarding our hardware platforms.”

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP.  However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as set forth in the reconciliation table above, are provided because management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the results of the Company’s continuing operations and believes this information provides investors supplemental insight into underlying business trends and operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

 

The Company’s results of operations are impacted by certain non-recurring charges, including equity based compensation, acquisition related expenditures, expense related to the internal investigation into conduct in China and Singapore (the “China/Singapore internal investigation”) and the SEC document subpoena, and other non-recurring charges that may not be indicative of the Company’s financial performance. Management believes that adjusting its operating expenses, operating loss, net loss and diluted loss per share to remove non-recurring charges provides a useful perspective with respect to our operating results and provides supplemental information to both management and investors by removing items that are difficult to predict and are often unanticipated.  While the Company believes the adjustments provide a useful comparison, the reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to corresponding GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated.

 

During the second quarter of 2019, the Company recorded $1,369,000 of expenses related to the expected sale of the SureCheck product group within the Restaurant/Retail reporting segment, this represents $581,000 included in costs of sales related to a reserve for inventory and $788,000 in costs of service related to impairment of intangible assets for the SureCheck product group. The Company recorded $100,000 of expenses related to the China/Singapore internal investigation and the SEC document subpoena. Additionally, $602,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the second quarter of 2019. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $242,000 related to the Company’s 2014 acquisition of Brink Software, Inc. (the “Brink Acquisition”). The provision for income tax line above is netted down by a 24%, or $693,000, tax impact from non-GAAP adjustments as well as a $4,065,000 tax adjustment relating to the sale of $80 million of 4.5% convertible senior notes in April 2019 (the “Notes”). Further, the Company recognized $573,000 accretion of interest related to the Notes.

 

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company recorded $314,000 of expenses related to the China/Singapore internal investigation and the SEC document subpoena. Additionally, $250,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the second quarter of 2018. There were $77,000 of severance expenses recorded in the second quarter related to the closing of the Company’s facility in France. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $242,000 related to the Brink Acquisition. The benefit from income tax was decreased by 24%, or $212,000, to reflect the tax impact from non-GAAP adjustments.
