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 June 28, 2013.

Second Quarter Highlights:
•Total revenue for the 13-week period increased 28% to $10.7 million compared to the same period last year.
•Profit before taxes for the 13-week period increased 56% to $376,800.

Revenues increased $2,367,500, or 28%, to $10,716,600 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, as compared to $8,349,100 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012. Greater e-commerce order volume for existing customers and the addition of new customers resulted in increases in Jagged Peak’s primary sources of revenue: fulfillment, technology fees and implementation of clients’ e-commerce sites.

Cost of revenue, which consists primarily of labor, fulfillment operations and facilities costs and freight, increased by $1,955,500 or 30%, to $8,560,300 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, as compared to $6,604,800 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 80% for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, as compared to 79% for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012.

Selling, general and administrative expense increased by $251,500, or 17%, to $1,693,500 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, as compared to $1,442,000 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012. This increase was primarily related to hiring of additional personnel to support new and existing customers.

Interest expense increased by $20,000 to $53,900 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, as compared to $33,900 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012, due to interest on the $2.388 million, 3.93% 5-year Term Loan, entered into on June 25, 2012 to finance the purchase of the Company’s previously leased warehouse facility in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Company realized a profit from continuing operations before provision for income taxes of $376,800 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, as compared to $240,700 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012.

Income tax expense was $152,300 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013 compared to an income tax expense of $132,200 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 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 June 28, 2013, the Company had U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $2,195,200 to reduce future taxable income, which will expire between 2024 and 2031. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $903,500 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 $224,500 for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013, compared with net income of $108,500 for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012.

Basic income per share from continuing operations for the 13-week period ended June 28, 2013 was $0.01 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.01 per weighted average share for the 13-week period ended June 29, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 26-week period ended June 28, 2013 was approximately $974,400 compared to approximately $770,800 for the 26-week period ended June 29, 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:

……………………………………..June 28, 2013………June 29, 2012
Net income as reported…………$322,800……………$161,300
Income tax expense……………….237,600……………..178,500
