Clarus Corporation Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

Forward-Looking Guidance

For the full fiscal year, ending December 31, 2010, the Company expects pro forma sales to range between $120 million and $125 million. The Company also expects the costs associated with the Acquisitions to decrease substantially and to be complete early in the first quarter of 2011.

Net Operating Loss

The Company estimates that it has available net operating loss carryforwards for U.S. federal income tax purposes of approximately $242.0 million, after application of the limitation under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Company’s common stock is subject to a Rights Agreement dated February 7, 2008, designed to assist in limiting the number of 5% or more owners and thus reduce the risk of a possible “change of ownership” under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as amended. Any such “change of ownership” under these rules would limit or eliminate the ability of the Company to use its existing NOLs for federal income tax purposes. There is no guaranty, however, that the Rights Agreement will achieve the objective of preserving the value of the NOLs.

Conference Call Details

The Company will broadcast a question and answer conference call at 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday, November 8, 2010. The call can be accessed by dialing 1-877-407-0789 (U.S. participants) or 1-201-689-8562 (International participants).

To listen to a telephonic replay of the conference call, dial toll-free 1-877-870-5176 or 1-858-384-5517 (international) and enter conference ID number: 360346.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The earnings press release contains the non-GAAP measures combined, combined adjusted and pro forma sales and gross profit, net income before non-cash items and adjusted net income before non-cash items and related earnings per share, and adjusted net cash (used in) provided by operating activities and adjusted free cash flows. The Registrant also believes that presentation of certain non-GAAP measures, i.e., combined, combined adjusted and pro forma sales and gross profit, net income before non-cash, and adjusted net cash (used in) provided by operating activities and adjusted free cash flows, provides useful information for the understanding of its ongoing operations and enables investors to focus on period-over-period operating performance, and thereby enhances the user’s overall understanding of the Registrant’s current financial performance relative to past performance and provides, to the nearest GAAP measures, a better baseline for modeling future earnings expectations. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP financial measures in the financial tables within this press release. The Registrant cautions that non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Registrant’s reported GAAP results. Additionally, the Registrant notes that there can be no assurance that the above referenced non-GAAP financial measures are comparable to similarly titled financial measures by other publicly traded companies.
