Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
Jagged Peak, Inc. (OTC BB: JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class eCommerce solutions and supply chain services, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2012.
26-Week Period Highlights:
Net revenues for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012 increased 21% to approximately $16.8 million, compared to approximately $13.8 million for the same period last year. The increase in revenue primarily resulted from continued expansion of services to existing customers, the addition of new customers and increased sales from our Canadian operations. Cost of revenue, which consists primarily of labor, software amortization, technology, facilities, postage, freight and packing supplies, increased by approximately $2.5 million, or 23%, to approximately $13.5 million for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012, as compared to approximately $11.0 million for the 26-week period ended July 1, 2011. As a percentage of revenues, costs of revenue amounted to approximately 80% of related revenues for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012, and 79% for the 26-week period ended July 1, 2011.
Selling, general and administrative expense increased by approximately $204 thousand, or 8%, to approximately $2.8 million for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012, as compared to approximately $2.6 million for the 26-week period ended July 1, 2011. This was primarily related to an increase in wages due to headcount increases.
Interest expense decreased by approximately $45.6 thousand to approximately $163.5 thousand for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012, as compared to approximately $209.1 thousand for the 26-week period ended July 1, 2011, due to the new, lower-cost, credit facility.
As a result of the above mentioned items, Jagged Peak realized a profit from continuing operations before provision for income taxes of approximately $ 339.8 thousand for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012, compared with a profit from continuing operations before provision for income taxes of approximately $71.6 thousand for the 26-week period ended July 1, 2011.
Net income for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012, was approximately $161.3 thousand, compared to approximately $27.5 thousand for the same period last year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the 26-week period ended June 29, 2012 was approximately $770.8 thousand compared to approximately $537.7 thousand for the same period last year. The increase in the Adjusted EBITDA relates primarily to the increase in income from continuing operations. Jagged Peak defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest and amortization of debt costs, taxes, depreciation and amortization costs, and stock option expense. Jagged Peak believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure of operating performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions, making comparisons between companies’ earnings power more meaningful and consistent.
The following reconciliation is provided for consistent comparisons of year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA.

Chief Executive Officer of Jagged Peak, Inc., Paul Demirdjian, commented, “We are very pleased with Jagged Peak’s performance in the most recent quarter. We developed and launched a number of new client sites, continued growing our FlexNet fulfillment network and expanded our same-day delivery services. One of the new client sites to go live is Pelican ProGear, which represents the first direct-to-consumer channel for parent company Pelican Products, Inc. We also established an alliance with The Princeton Companies, which added new warehouse locations and bolsters our print-on-demand services and apparel product fulfillment capabilities. With our new financing in place and the recent purchase of our previously leased fulfillment facility, we are focused on growing our business with our end-to-end e-commerce solution."
“We began the year with a focus on improving revenue, cash flow and our bottom line,” said Chief Financial Officer of Jagged Peak, Inc., Albert Narvades. “In the first half of the year we have implemented prudent controls over operating expenses. Our new financing and the purchase of our fulfillment facility will add to the ongoing improvements in our cash flow and bottom line.”
Use of GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures
In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Jagged Peak (“the company”) has included in this report “Adjusted EBITDA,” with Adjusted EBITDA being defined by the company as earnings before interest and amortization of debt costs, taxes, depreciation and amortization costs and stock option expense. For each non-GAAP financial measure, the company has presented the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and has reconciled the non-GAAP financial measure with such comparable GAAP financial measure.
These non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors to assist in understanding the underlying operational performance of the company. Specifically, Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure of operating performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions, making comparisons between companies’ earnings power more meaningful and providing consistent period-over-period comparisons of the company’s performance. In addition, the company uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally to measure its on-going business performance and in reports to bankers to permit monitoring of the company’s ability to pay outstanding liabilities.
