TAMPA, Fla., May 9, 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 quarter ended March 28, 2014.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Total revenue for the 13-week period increased 36% to $14.1 million compared to the same period last year.
  • GAAP net income of $60,200 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014 reflecting continued profitable growth.

Revenues increased $3,739,000, or 36%, to $14,090,700 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014, as compared to $10,351,700 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013. 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 $3,573,200, or 44%, to $11,773,800 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014, as compared to $8,200,600 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue was 84% for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014, as compared to 79% for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013. This increase is primarily related to the increase in fulfillment employees needed to manage order growth.

Selling, general and administrative expense increased by $170,800, or 9%, to $2,058,000 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014, as compared to $1,887,200 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013. This increase was primarily related to increases in staff costs due to additional employees needed to grow client support teams.

Interest expense decreased by $3,700 to $46,800 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014, as compared to $50,500 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013.

Income tax expense was $59,100 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014 compared to an income tax expense of $85,300 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013. Differences between the taxable income and the effective tax rate used for 2014 and 2013, as compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate, are primarily due to permanent differences and taxes on foreign operations. As of March 28, 2014, the Company had U.S. (federal and state) net operating loss carry forwards of $791,100 to reduce future taxable income, which will expire between 2027 and 2032. The Company also has a Canadian net operating loss carry forward of $1,235,800 which does not begin to expire until 2030.

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 $60,200 for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014, compared with net income of $98,300 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013, a decrease of 39%.

Basic income per share from continuing operations for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014 was $0.00 per weighted average share, compared with basic income of $0.01 per weighted average share for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2014 was approximately $379,500 compared to approximately $381,700 for the 13-week period ended March 29, 2013. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization. To provide consistent comparisons of year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA, the following reconciliation is provided:
