Cover-All Technologies Inc. (NYSE MKT: COVR) today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2014.

"While total revenues were flat compared to last year's record revenues, profitability improved significantly to $0.4 million for 2014 from a net loss of $2.9 million last year," said Manish Shah, CEO and President of Cover-All. "Profitability would have been even higher had it not been for $0.4 million of expenses we incurred during the 2014 fourth quarter as a result of the proposed merger with Majesco we announced on December 14, 2014. Improvements to profitability and prudent cash management meaningfully improved our liquidity and balance sheet, and at December 31, 2014 the Company's cash position increased nearly 150% to $4.6 million.

"We reported record professional services revenue in 2014 driven by implementations of last year's licensing sales. Throughout 2014, we successfully completed several implementation phases and helped five customers go live with their Cover-All products. Successful and rapid implementations are critically important as we work on achieving the next cycle of licensing sales. Strong demand for professional services continues to increase as a result of ongoing implementation projects, as well as the next rounds of recently completed implementations at existing customers. We expect demand for professional services to remain strong throughout 2015. Cover-All's ability to implement our software quickly and cost effectively increases our value proposition to potential customers and enhances our credibility within the industry.

"The other significant milestone of 2014 was the December 14 merger announcement with Majesco. This is a transformative opportunity for Cover-All's shareholders, employees and customers. The merger should improve our competitiveness as there are a limited amount of vendors in the marketplace today that will compare to the combined company's proven and comprehensive solutions. We are excited about this opportunity, which accelerates the creation of shareholder value through what we expect to be faster and more consistent growth. Majesco is expected to file a registration statement on Form S-4 on February 19, 2015 and we look forward to providing more details on the proposed merger in our conference call and webcast today."

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Statements in this press release, other than statements of historical information, are forward-looking statements that are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks which may cause the Company's actual results in future periods to differ materially from expected results. Those risks include, among others, risks associated with increased competition, customer decisions, the successful completion of continuing development of new products, the successful negotiations, execution and implementation of anticipated new software contracts, the successful implementation of our acquisition strategies and our ability to complete or integrate acquisitions, the successful addition of personnel in the marketing and technical areas, our ability to complete development and sell and license our products at prices which result in sufficient revenues to realize profits and other business factors beyond the Company's control. Those and other risks are described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") over the last 12 months, including but not limited to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, filed with the SEC on March 28, 2014, copies of which are available from the SEC or may be obtained upon request from the Company.

*ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In evaluating its business, Cover-All considers and uses EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its operating performance. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company presents EBITDA because it believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance.

The term EBITDA is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Among other things, EBITDA does not reflect the Company's actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Cover-All, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. Cover-All compensates for these limitations by relying on its GAAP results and using EBITDA only supplementally.
