AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asure Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software, announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Strategic Highlights

  • Hoteling demand continues to increase - closed on seven hoteling deals, including solutions for Fiserv, Genpact, and Rogers Communications.
  • Migrated 89 clients from on-premise to on-demand products, representing a 46% increase over the same quarter last year.
  • Previously arranged multi-year technology transfer agreement with MPAY, agreed to in 2012, resulted in recognizing revenue of $200,000 this quarter with $600,000 of deferred revenue to be recognized ratably over the next three years.
  • Implemented a strategic channel sales strategy which led to the signing of one of the largest IT integrators in South Africa and another in Brazil.
  • The company is introducing backlog as a metric this quarter. The quantification of backlog will lead to more transparency and visibility of revenue growth. We define backlog as sales bookings that have not yet turned into revenue or deferred revenue, including both repetitive and non-repetitive product lines. For repetitive products, one year's value is included in backlog. Backlog at June 30, 2015 is $2.2 million.


  • Cloud bookings, including PSSI, decreased by 23% from the second quarter of 2014, but increased by 103%, excluding PSSI.
  • Revenue for the quarter was $7.2 million as compared to $6.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 9%.
  • Recurring revenue as a percent of total revenue was 70% for the quarter as compared to 78% in the second quarter of 2014. This decrease is primarily the result of a shift in our revenue mix due to strong hardware and professional services revenue in the quarter.
  • Gross margin for the quarter was $5.3 million compared to $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 2%.
  • EBITDA* excluding one-time items* for the quarter was approximately $1.4 million compared to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 18%.
  • Second quarter net income per share, excluding one-times*, was $0.04 compared to $0.02 in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Cash flow provided by operating activities for the quarter was $316,000 compared to $676,000 in the second quarter of 2014, representing a decrease of 53%. Cash flow provided by operating activities year to date was $862,000 compared to $747,000 in the first half of 2014, an increase of 15%.

Pat Goepel, Chief Executive Officer of Asure Software commented, "We are continuing to see the growth of the hoteling, hotdesking, and mobile workforce around the world. With recent wins across numerous Fortune 1000 companies over the last four months, we are well positioned to build on this momentum going into the last half of the year. As we anticipated, we solved our hardware inventory delay challenges. We're really starting to hit our stride and are excited to see the continuation of the progress we've made this quarter as we work to sign additional technology partners, continue to innovate our products, work through our partner channels and as more of the market understands the scope of the products and services we provide in supporting the digital workplace. "

Brad Wolfe, Asure's Chief Financial Officer added, "The Company is well-positioned to drive bookings growth, revenue and EBITDA moving forward. We expect to continue our Q2 performance throughout the remainder of year and forward. Accordingly, we reaffirm our 2015 guidance as stated in our fourth quarter 2014 earnings release."

*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.
