AUSTIN, Texas, November 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asure Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software, announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.
 
Strategic Highlights
 
·  
Cloud revenue growth was driven with the key sales and upgrades of AsureForce workforce management solutions to ECI Electronic Commerce, Inc., Startek, Inc. and Forum Credit Union in the US and key sales and upgrades of AsureSpace workspace management solutions to KPMG, Deutsche Bank, and Alexander Mann in the UK and Pfizer, Fitch, and the Educational Testing Service in the US.
·  
Expanded the Company’s product portfolio with the introduction of some key first-to-market SaaS-based technologies, including the introduction of NowSpace™, a space scheduling mobile app, the AsureForce AirClock™, a tablet-based time collection device with facial recognition, and SmartTag™, a highly visual SaaS-based asset management solution; also launched new advanced scheduling and enterprise scheduling capabilities within the AsureForce product line.
·  
Expanded the Company’s global presence with new partnerships in South Africa and Dubai and transitioned two of the Company’s largest U.S. partners from on premise to SaaS solutions.
·  
There was a pullback in the third quarter of 22% from our very strong second quarter bookings of $3.9 million. Year to date the trend line for bookings remains strong with an overall increase of 36% and an increase of 28% in cloud bookings.

Management Commentary
Pat Goepel , Chief Executive Officer of Asure Software commented, “Consistent with our overall strategy, the company continues to drive toward repetitive revenue growth and operational efficiency.  In Q3, Asure brought several best-in-breed technologies to market that directly support our continued focus on bringing SaaS-based best-in-class solutions to a global market place. These expanded capabilities, along with the expansion of our partner channels, allow us to drive sales, growth and long-term profitability; as a result, Q4 sales activity is encouraging.”

Brad Wolfe, Asure’s Chief Financial Officer added, “Third quarter brought continued improvement in net income and growth in bookings. The combination of SaaS-based repetitive revenue with one-time revenue gained from professional services and integrated hardware sales has had a positive impact on the quarter and year over year Cloud revenue growth remains positive. We anticipate a strong end to the year with continued year over year growth in both revenue and EBITDA. As we approach year end, we are adjusting our guidance for the full year as reflected below.”

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission: EBITDA and GAAP Net Income/(Loss) excluding one-time items. These supplemental financial measures are not required by GAAP, nor is the presentation of this financial information intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with Asure's earnings results as determined in accordance with GAAP. However, for the reasons described below, management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of Asure's business. Asure's management believes that it is important to provide investors with these same tools, together with reconciliation to GAAP, for evaluating the performance of Asure's business, as it may provide additional insight into Asure's financial results. See the “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income/(Loss) to Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Stock Compensation Expense (EBITDA)” and the “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income/(Loss) to Net Earnings Excluding One-Time Items” tables included in this press release for further information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, these measures are presented because management believes they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and others in the evaluation of companies. EBITDA is calculated by adding income taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization and stock compensation expense to net earnings. EBITDA is not defined under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings and other consolidated earnings data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of Asure's profitability.

Net Earnings Excluding One-Time Items is calculated by combining the company’s GAAP Net Earnings, or earnings per share, with items that are one time in nature and are not expected to recur on a dollar or per share basis.
 
Free Cash Flow is computed by subtracting capital expenditures from cash flow from operations, each as determined in accordance with GAAP and as reflected in the statement of cash flows.

Non-GAAP Revenue is computed by adding back the deferred revenue fair market valuation to GAAP revenue.

Reconciliation of GAAP Net Earnings to Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Stock Compensation Expense (EBITDA) and EBITDA Excluding
One-time items.
