TMNG Global Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Aug. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global (Nasdaq:TMNG), a premier provider of professional services and technical solutions to the global leaders in the communications, digital media, and technology industries, reported financial results for its 2012 second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

"In the first half of 2012, TMNG Global met key objectives by maintaining a stable revenue base, significantly reducing our operating cost structure, broadening and strengthening our management team with the formation of an executive committee composed of Company leaders, and engendering a stronger culture focused on restoring sustainable profitability and driving future growth," said Donald Klumb, CEO of TMNG Global. "Our second quarter results demonstrate substantially improved operating performance across key business units since the second half of 2011. Our balance sheet remains strong, with cash of $10.3 million and net working capital of $17.5 million. I am encouraged by the progress made so far in 2012 and by the actions we are taking as a company to improve our execution and enhance our competitive position. Going forward, our primary focus is on driving growth."

Financial Results for the Thirteen Weeks Ended June 30, 2012

Revenues in the second quarter of 2012 were $13.5 million, compared to $17.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $13.8 million in the first quarter of 2012. As expected, revenues declined as compared to the second quarter of 2011 due primarily to a significant Tier 1 carrier engagement that was substantially completed during the first half of 2011 and a decrease in software licensing revenues. During the quarter, TMNG's gross margin was 37.4%, compared with 39.4% in the second quarter of 2011 and 36.8% in the first quarter of 2012. The sequential gross margin increase reflects ongoing improvements in operational efficiency improvement and the leveraging of consulting capacity.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $6.2 million in the first quarter of 2012. This decline reflects the Company's success in significantly reducing its selling, general and administrative expense structure.

TMNG Global reported a net loss of ($0.4) million on a GAAP basis, or ($0.06) per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012, an improvement from the net loss of ($1.0) million or ($0.15) per diluted share in the second quarter of 2011 and the net loss of ($1.2) million or ($0.17) per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012.  The second quarter of 2012 included remaining charges related to the Company's strategic initiatives, including severance expense of approximately $0.4 million related to executive leadership changes during the second quarter of 2012 and general and administrative cost reductions that were initiated in the first quarter of 2012. After adjusting for the after tax impact of net realized losses on auction rate securities, depreciation and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, non-GAAP adjusted net loss was ($0.2) million, or ($0.02) per diluted share during the second quarter of 2012. The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss was ($0.2) million, or ($0.03) per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 and ($1.0) million, or ($0.13) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2012.

Financial Results for the Twenty-Six Weeks Ended June 30, 2012

For the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012, revenues were $27.3 million, compared with $34.1 million in the comparable period of fiscal year 2011. TMNG Global's gross margin was 37.1% during the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012, compared with 38.4% in the comparable period of fiscal year 2011.

Net loss for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012 was ($1.6) million or ($0.22) per diluted share, compared with a net loss of ($2.2) million or ($0.31) per diluted share in the comparable period of fiscal year 2011. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss, adjusted for the after tax impact of net realized losses on auction rate securities, depreciation and amortization expense, and share-based compensation, was approximately ($1.1) million, or ($0.16) per diluted share, for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012. The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the twenty-six weeks ended July 2, 2011 was ($0.9) million or ($0.12) per diluted share.

In addition to reporting net loss and net loss per share on a GAAP basis, this press release contains certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the schedule entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss" that accompanies this press release. In making these non-GAAP adjustments, the Company took into account certain non-cash expenses and benefits, including tax effects as applicable, and the impact of certain items that are generally not expected to be on-going in nature or that are unrelated to the Company's core operations.  Management believes non-GAAP financial information provides a useful basis for evaluating underlying business performance, but should not be considered in isolation and is not a substitute for GAAP financial information. The Company believes that providing such adjusted results allows investors and other users of the Company's financial statements to better understand TMNG Global's comparative operating performance for the periods presented.

TMNG Global's management uses the non-GAAP financial measure in its own evaluation of the Company's performance, particularly when comparing performance to the prior year's period and on a sequential basis. TMNG Global's non-GAAP measure may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even if similar terms are used to identify such measures. Although TMNG Global's management believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating the performance of its business, TMNG Global acknowledges that items excluded from such measure have a material impact on the Company's net loss and net loss per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, management uses non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP results. Investors and other users of our financial information should also consider the above factors when evaluating TMNG Global's results.
