PAR Technology Corporation Announces 2011 Fourth Quarter And Year End Results From Continuing Operations

PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR) today announced results from continuing operations for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011. The Company reported revenues of $60.1 million and net earnings of $1.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares with the prior year’s fourth quarter results from continuing operations of $63.5 million in revenues and net earnings of $1.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share.

For the year 2011, PAR reported total revenues from continuing operations of $229.4 million, down 2.4% from the $235.0 million reported for fiscal year 2010. On a GAAP basis, reflecting non-recurring charges incurred in the second quarter of 2011, net loss from continuing operations for 2011 was $13.4 million, representing a loss per diluted share of $0.89. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding these charges, adjusted net income from continuing operations for the year was $5.5 million, or $0.36 earnings per diluted share. The results compare to the $5.0 million of net income and $0.33 earnings per diluted share from continuing operations reported for fiscal year 2010.

“Since joining PAR, I have stressed focusing and streamlining our organization so we can best realize the important hospitality investments we have made to date. The fourth quarter met our expectations, producing solid results in a slowly improving economic environment. Besides the results, we demonstrated tangible progress towards our strategic goals as evidenced by the sale of our logistics segment, the selection by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., of our in-store food safety technology solution, SureCheck, and the successful deployment of our new cloud-based property management solution, ATRIO™,” commented Paul B. Domorski, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Focusing on the fundamentals, including improving the balance sheet, at the same time as changing our business model, has started to yield results.”

Mr. Domorski continued, “Our business segments performed consistent with our expectations for the quarter. Excluding sales to McDonalds, for which we had a large North American in-store technology upgrade deployment in 2010, Hospitality revenues increased. Domestic revenues from YUM! Brands increased 13% in the fourth quarter 2011 versus the same period of 2010. We also saw strong continued sequential growth in international revenues, which is an encouraging sign of overall economic recovery. Our cloud-based property management solution, ATRIO, continues to perform well in the initial stages of its deployment. Given the compelling operating and financial benefits of ATRIO, our prospect pipeline is expanding, reflecting growing enthusiasm for its SaaS model. With SureCheck, we are creating a new market with Wal-Mart Stores, the world’s largest retailer, as our launch customer. PAR has always been known for the reliability and value of our products and services; now customers are seeing innovation as well, viewing us in a new light.”

“Our Government segment performed well during the quarter, increasing revenues by 21% over the fourth quarter of 2010. Growth is being driven by the recent $42.5 million, five year contract to support the U.S. Army with Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) technologies and services. We are currently exploring commercial opportunities associated with the full motion video products related to the Army ISR contract and have also identified several U.S. military communication site contracts for which we expect to be bidding this year.”

“In conclusion, we see 2011 as a year of transition as we remain committed to building a world class company.”

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 year ended December 31, 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 December 31, 2011, nor did they impact the financial results of any period of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.
