The results for the reported period cause the Company to be non-compliant with certain covenants to the banks. The company is negotiating revised set of covenants which will reflect our current level of operations.

The Company has incurred negative cash flows from operations during 2010, the second and the third quarter of 2011. The Company is working to enhance the Company’s cash resources. However, there is no assurance that continued negative cash flow from operations will not create a material adverse effect on the Company’s future financial condition and results of operations.

  • Amortization of intangible assets;
  • Stock-based compensation;
  • Onetime expenses related to cost saving plan and one time charges; and
  • Revaluation of warrants and discount amortization.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to BluePhoenix' GAAP results and is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. BluePhoenix' management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding certain charges and gains that may not be indicative of BluePhoenix' core business operating results. BluePhoenix believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing BluePhoenix' performance.
