Company Delivers Record EBITDA of $3.2 Million
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DynTek, Inc. (DYNE.OTC), a leading provider of professional technology services, today announced results for its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2018.
First Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results
For the first quarter ended September 30, 2018 as compared to the prior year first quarter ended September 30, 2017.
First quarter results reflect higher revenue and gross profit performance across our product mix, with the most favorable increases in the demand for data center upgrades. Gross profit rose 16.6% to $10.1 million, from $8.6 million. Gross margin improved 50 basis points to 18.5%, compared with 18.0% last year. The reduction in operating expenses was due in a large part to the prior year stock option buyback charge of $1.4 million which was reclassed to Equity at year end. Prior year operating expenses without this charge were $6.9 million, equal to the current year despite continued growth in revenues. Net earnings for the first quarter on a comparative basis were 42% higher that prior year earnings adjusted for the stock option buyback charge. EBITDA rose 58.0% from $2.0 million to $3.2 million, driven primarily by the increase in gross profit, while controlling expenses.
“The team delivered a record quarter, with a key focus on increased profitability as evidenced by our record EBITDA results,” said Ron Ben-Yishay, DynTek’s chief executive officer. “Our performance this quarter was driven by our customers’ growing needs to modernize data centers and IT infrastructure, both on-premises and in the cloud. In addition, we continue to see increasing demand for cybersecurity solutions, as our customers face new threat vectors.”
The Company defines EBITDA as net income from operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. Other companies may calculate EBITDA differently. Although EBITDA is a widely used financial indicator of a company's ability to service debt, it is not a recognized measure for financial statement presentation under generally accepted accounting procedures (GAAP). EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as superior or as an alternative to net income or to cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP. Nonetheless, the Company believes that EBITDA provides useful supplemental information for investors and others to measure operating performance, especially in situations where a company has significant non-cash operating expenses that are not indicative of core business operating results. EBITDA is widely used in the IT services industry to analyze comparable company performance, and management of the Company also uses EBITDA, in addition to GAAP information, as a measure of operating performance for assessing its business units.
