Brendan Reidy, CEO, Top Image Systems, commented, "Since joining TIS in late August, I have toured the Company's offices worldwide to evaluate the performance of our global operations. I have been impressed by the Company's R&D resources and product management team, as well as by the high caliber of our professional services' organization. I have participated in business reviews in each region to evaluate our sales and marketing strategies and consider how to improve our execution and accelerate achievement of our goals. One high priority goal is our FPA cloud solution development, which is making great progress. This cloud deployment model will enable us to adapt our solution to address the specific deployment demands of virtually any enterprise. Coupled with our well-received on-premise FPA solution, our cloud offering widely expands our addressable market opportunity in the Accounts Payable space. In the recent quarter, 64% of our business was recurring; by growing sales of our cloud-based FPA solution sold via a SaaS business model, our revenue will be more predictable and, due to their relatively short sales cycles, should also bring faster revenue growth. These new solutions bolster our continued presence in the profitable content and banking process automation markets where we have reinforced our core capture technologies with innovative and high-in-demand mobile and cloud capabilities and are improving our go-to-market via powerful strategic partnerships."

"After two consecutive quarters of revenue in line with expectations, in Q3 the Company experienced a delay in the deployment of an important government project which caused a revenue shortfall for the quarter," added Mr. Reidy. "For this reason we are working hard to modify our product strategy so that an increasing percentage of revenues will be predictable and reliable, reducing our dependency on the profitable yet volatile capture market. Despite the temporary revenue shortfall, we achieved a positive adjusted EBITDA of $234,000 this quarter and we continued to make steady progress executing on our growth initiatives, including receiving orders for half a million dollars in sales from our on-premise FPA solution.  Nevertheless, going forward, I have now put in place a 90-day operational and strategic priorities program. Our imperative is to return the Company to profitable growth while we transform our business to focus on the higher velocity cloud applications software market opportunity."

Mr. Reidy concluded, "The institution of these measures will include rigorous opportunity pipeline review, additional capacity in leads qualifications, targeted campaigns to upsell new solutions to our installed base, continued focus on services delivery, steps to better leverage our remittance business in the U.S. and investments in strategic partnerships. In short, we must improve our top line revenue through better execution.   I will be relentlessly focused on addressing this challenge to ensure that our revenue performance is more consistent.  With my personal commitment to the execution of these measures, in parallel with our ongoing mission to transform our company into a cloud applications software company, I am confident that we can realize our growth potential."

Izhak Nakar, Chairman of Top Image Systems, remarked, "Our Board of Directors is confident that recruiting the well-respected, enterprise software industry veteran Brendan Reidy will lead to accelerated revenue growth. Brendan's experience in bringing cloud-based solutions to market and defining successful business models will prove extremely valuable at this critical inflection point for our company."

* GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures This release includes GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, including, without limitation, adjusted EBITDA (which eliminates the impact of interest, taxes, amortization and depreciation expenses, as well as non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other non-recurring items not part of regular business), Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) (which eliminates the impact of amortization expenses as well as non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other non-recurring items not part of TIS' ongoing business operations) and Non-GAAP Income (Loss) per share. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures in the tables below.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to TIS' GAAP results provided in the attached financial statements for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 and the other periods presented, and is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The tables below reconcile each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. TIS' management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding TIS' performance by excluding the impact of certain items that may not be indicative of TIS' core business operating results. TIS' management believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing TIS' performance in addition to the GAAP results. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons to TIS' historical performance and its competitors' operating results. TIS includes these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.
