Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 08, 2013
Jagged Peak, Inc. (OTC BB: JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class e-commerce solutions and supply chain services, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 27, 2013.
Third Quarter Highlights:
Revenues increased $2,602,100, or 30%, to $11,319,900 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, as compared to $8,717,800 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012. Greater e-commerce order volume on client sites resulted in increases in both technology and fulfillment service revenues. Revenues from implementation of new client sites and on-going development for existing clients were consistent across these periods.
Cost of revenue, which consists primarily of labor, fulfillment operations and facilities costs, increased by $2,326,000 or 35%, to $8,982,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, as compared to $6,656,300 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 79% for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, as compared to 76% for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012. This increase is primarily related to the increase in fulfillment employees needed to manage order growth.
Selling, general and administrative expense increased by $238,100, or 15%, to $1,851,900 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, as compared to $1,613,800 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012. This increase was primarily related to increases in wages due to additional employees needed to grow support teams.
Interest expense decreased by $7,100 to $51,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, as compared to $58,400 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012, primary due to a lower average outstanding balance and lower rate on the line of credit.
The Company realized a profit from continuing operations before provision for income taxes of $458,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, as compared to $417,300 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012, an increase of 10%.
Income tax expense was $179,000 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013 compared to an income tax expense of $163,100 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012. Differences between the taxable income and the effective tax rate used for 2013 and 2012, as compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate, are primarily due to permanent differences and taxes on foreign operations. As of September 27, 2013, the Company had U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $1,635,500 to reduce future taxable income, which will expire between 2024 and 2031. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $988,400 which does not begin to expire until 2029.
Management believes there will be sufficient future earnings to support the more than likely realization of deferred tax assets in excess of existing taxable temporary differences. The amount of deferred tax assets considered realizable, however, could be reduced in the near-term if estimates of future taxable income are reduced.
The Company realized net income of $279,300 for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013, compared with net income of $254,200 for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012, an increase of 10%.
Basic income per share from continuing operations for the 13-week period ended September 27, 2013 was $0.02 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.02 per weighted average share for the 13-week period ended September 28, 2012.
Adjusted EBITDA for the 39-week period ended September 27, 2013 was approximately $1,665,200 compared to approximately $1,376,500 for the 39-week period ended September 28, 2012. The increase in the Adjusted EBITDA primarily relates to the increase in sales, improved operating margins from improved management of fulfillment operations, implementation of clients’ e-commerce sites and lower borrowing costs. These improvements were partially offset by higher salaries and wages. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, and stock option expense. The Company 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 providing consistent comparisons of the Company’s performance. To provide consistent comparisons of year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA, the following reconciliation is provided:
