Ameri100 Reports Positive Adjusted EBITDA for the Second Quarter of 2018


ATLANTA, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMERI Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMRH) ("Ameri100" or the "Company"), a specialized SAP® cloud, digital and enterprise services company, today reported its unaudited financial results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 vs. Second Quarter 2017

  • Revenue of $11.1 million compared to $12.3 million;
  • Gross profit of $2.4 million compared to $2.3 million;
  • Gross margin of 21.6% compared to 19.0%;
  • GAAP net (loss) of $(1.4) million compared to $(3.8) million;
  • (Loss) per share of $(0.07) compared to $(0.26); and
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $141,000 compared to $(603,000).

First Half of 2018 vs. First Half of 2017

  • Revenue of $22.1 million compared to $24.6 million;
  • Gross profit of $4.7 million compared to $5.6 million;
  • Gross margin of 21.4% compared to 22.9%;
  • GAAP net (loss) of $(3.5) million compared to $(5.0) million; 
  • (Loss) per share of $(0.19) compared to $(0.35); and
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $30,000 compared to $231,000. 

"Our second quarter results reflect solid solutions sales and operational execution that takes us across a critical threshold of achieving positive Adjusted EBITDA for both the quarter and for the first half of the year in-line with our profitability guidance," stated Brent Kelton, Chief Executive Officer at Ameri100. "Gross margins increased by approximately 250 basis points year-over-year on lower revenue as we are deliberately shifting our sales towards high-margin solutions sales and de-emphasizing low-margin professional services revenue. As an example, during the quarter we secured wins in high-growth, high demand segments of the SAP services market, including our first healthcare sector win. 

"Operationally, we reduced costs by approximately 25% as we continued to restructure and streamline our acquired entities in the quarter. Subsequent to the close of the quarter, we moved to deleverage our balance sheet and support our working capital needs through a private placement that gives us greater operational and financial flexibility with which to pursue solution sales growth." 

Concluded Mr. Kelton, "Looking ahead to the second-half of the fiscal year, with a more efficient cost structure, a services offering aligned with high growth segments of the SAP services market and a robust sales pipeline, we have a strong foundation for organic growth. With SAP migrations serving as a tailwind, and with a scalable platform and clean balance sheet, we are actively building a stable of target M&A opportunities to build scale in the fragmented SAP business services market and better realize the earnings power of our business model." 

Updated Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook

Based on 2018 second quarter and first half results and assuming a continued mix shift in favor of higher-margin solution sales, the Company now expects:

  • Revenues to be comparable with fiscal 2017; and
  • Positive adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), information containing non-GAAP financial measures for the Company are disclosed in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Management encourages readers to rely upon the GAAP numbers, but includes the non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental metrics to assist readers.

In this press release, the Company presents the non-GAAP financial measure "adjusted EBITDA." Company management uses this non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's performance. As the Company's core business is providing information technology services and products, Company management finds it useful to use "adjusted EBITDA", which does not include interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, preferred stock dividends, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, restructuring expenses and changes in estimates related to acquisitions. While we may have these types of items and charges in the future, Company management believes that they are not reflective of the day-to-day offering of its products and services and relate more to strategic, multi-year corporate actions, without predictable trends, and that may obscure the trends and financial performance of the Company's core business. Company management believes the exclusion of the items described above from "adjusted EBITDA" is a very common measure utilized in the investment community and it helps Company management benchmark its operations and results with the industry.

The limitation associated with using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these measures exclude items that impact the Company's current period operating results. This limitation is best addressed by using these non-GAAP financial measures in combination with "net income (loss)", and "net income (loss) per diluted share" (the most comparable GAAP measures) because these non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect items that impact current period operating results and may be higher or lower than the most comparable GAAP measure.
