TAMPA, Fla., March 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jagged Peak, Inc. (OTCBB:JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class e-commerce solutions and supply chain services, today announced financial results for the fiscal year ended December 27, 2013.

52-Week Period Ended December 27, 2013 Highlights:

  • Total revenue for the 52-week period increased 28% to $47.5 million, as compared to $37.2 million for the same period last year.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the 52-week period increased to $2.4 million, as compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2012.
     
  • Net income for the 52-week period increased to $847 thousand, as compared to $533 thousand for the same period last year.
     
  • In March 2013, Jagged Peak amended its Senior Credit Facility with Fifth Third Bank to reduce its interest rate to LIBOR plus 2.5%.
     
  • In August 2013, Jagged Peak increased the borrowing capacity on its Senior Credit Facility with Fifth Third Bank to $5.0 million.

Revenues increased $10,249,100, or 28%, to $47,481,800 for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013, as compared to $37,232,700 for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012. Greater e-commerce order processing 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 $8,451,900, or 29%, to $38,019,300 for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013, as compared to $29,567,400 for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 80% for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013, as compared to 79% for the 52-week period ended December 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 $1,328,300, or 21%, to $7,746,400 for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013, as compared to $6,418,100 for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012. This increase was primarily related to increases in staff costs due to additional employees needed to grow client support teams.

Interest expense decreased by $74,600 to $207,000 for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013, as compared to $281,600 for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012. The decrease in interest expense is a result of lower interest rates for the Fifth Third Bank Facility which replaced the more expensive Moriah Loan in March 2012.

Income tax expense was $573,800 for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013 compared to an income tax expense of $428,000 for the 52-week period ended December 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 December 27, 2013, the Company had U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $1,073,400 to reduce future taxable income, which will expire between 2027 and 2031. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $1,106,600 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 $847,300 for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013, compared with net income of $533,400 for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012, an increase of 59%.

Basic income per share from continuing operations for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013 was $0.05 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.03 per weighted average share for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 52-week period ended December 27, 2013 was approximately $2,436,200 compared to approximately $1,773,600 for the 52-week period ended December 28, 2012. The increase in the Adjusted EBITDA primarily relates to the increase in sales from greater e-commerce order processing, improved operating margins from improved management of administrative operations, and lower borrowing costs. These improvements were partially offset by higher staff related costs of client support teams. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, and non-cash compensation 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:
