PAR Technology Corporation Announces 2012 Third Quarter Results

PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. PAR reported third quarter revenues of $61.1 million, a 4% increase from the $58.7 million reported for the third quarter of 2011. Net income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2012 was $1.3 million, representing diluted earnings per share of $0.09, compared to the third quarter of 2011 figure of $1.6 million, representing diluted earnings per share of $0.11.

Paul B. Domorski, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Current market conditions, in the hospitality segments we serve, are making organic growth challenging in the near-term. Despite this uncertainty, PAR has been able to maintain profitability, while continuing our investment in expanding our market reach through new products and services.”

Mr. Domorski continued, “During the third quarter, PAR made several important announcements. In the hospitality segment, we introduced our all new PAR EverServ® 7000 Point of Sale terminal. This is a terrific new product, which delivers demonstrable value to our customers at an attractive price point. Also in the quarter, PAR Springer-Miller formally announced the transition of its ATRIO® Guest Experience Management software with Microsoft Corporation’s Windows Azure™ cloud platform. With Windows Azure, a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters, PAR is now able to provide computing and storage resources in support of ATRIO, assuring our customers of 99.95% uptime. During the quarter, we also announced new distribution partners, as we prepare for the aggressive roll-out of ATRIO worldwide.”

“Finally, our Government contracting segment announced several new contracts, most notably the award by the U.S. Army of an additional contract with a ceiling value of $48 million and a five year term. This is the most recent contract we have received based on our expertise in advanced Full Motion Video (FMV), Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) software and hardware technologies. PAR is providing research, development, deployment and operational support, and user training necessary to transition these innovative and important capabilities to the field.”

Mr. Domorski concluded, “The continued slowdown in business with our largest restaurant technology customer in the quarter has resulted in lower year-over-year revenue in our hospitality technology segment. Our other hospitality markets have also shown weakness in the quarter. However, given our conservative approach to uncertainty, we braced PAR for such conditions, refrained from any non-essential expenditures and concentrated on profitability while continuing our focus on innovation and new product introductions. It is important to note that we continue to benefit from our strong and growing Government contracting business through a pipeline of new contract wins. As our hospitality technology markets rebound from the current market slowdown, we are poised to return to improved growth patterns with higher profitability.”

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as defined in the reconciliation table above, are provided herein because management uses such measures in evaluating the results of the continuing operations of the Company and believes this information provides investors better insight into underlying business trends and performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Company recorded total charges of $29.4 million primarily related to an impairment of goodwill and intangible assets of $20.8 million. Additionally, the Company recorded a charge of $7.7 million related to a non-recurring write-down of certain inventory associated with discontinued products, and charges of $0.9 million related to the consolidation of some of its facilities. The aforementioned charges have been recorded net of tax benefit of $10.6 million and have been excluded in the Company’s non-GAAP measures because they are considered non-recurring in nature and are quantitatively and qualitatively different from the Company’s core operations during any particular period.

These charges did not have any impact on the Company’s financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2011.
