Fiscal Q2 2016 Financial Results from Continuing Operations

Net revenues in the fiscal second quarter of 2016 increased 36% to $31.3 million compared to $23.1 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was due to the inclusion of Fifth Gear, which was acquired in the third quarter of fiscal 2015.

Adjusted gross profit margin was 17.1% compared to 23.9% in the year-ago quarter (see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" below for further discussion about this and other non-GAAP measures). The decrease was due to higher operating costs in the company's Ohio fulfillment center.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $(0.6) million compared to $2.6 million in the year-ago quarter.

Net loss from continuing operations was $26.0 million or $(0.32) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.9 million or $(0.06) per diluted share in the year-ago quarter. This net loss includes the impact of a $17.3 million pre-tax non-cash charge related to the impairment of goodwill and intangibles recognized during the second quarter of fiscal year 2016.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

In evaluating the company's financial performance and operating trends, management considers information concerning the company's adjusted gross margins, and adjusted EBITDA, among other items, which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America. The company's management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they provide supplemental information that facilitates comparisons to prior periods and for the evaluation of financial results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its financial results, develop budgets and manage expenditures. The method the company uses to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP, is likely to differ from the methods used by other companies and should not be regarded as a replacement for corresponding GAAP measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is attached to this release and can also be found on the company's website at
