"We continue to be pleased with the steady progress of the SI/VAR portion of our business. We are most excited about the positive feedback we have received about both AirPatrol & LightMiner from clients, prospective clients and partners," stated Mr. Nadir Ali, CEO of Sysorex. "Over the past twelve months we have transformed both AirPatrol and LightMiner from concepts to reality. It has been encouraging to see the industry in which these products compete not just embrace the products, but begin to change as we believe both LightMiner and AirPatrol are disruptive technologies. Sysorex is at an inflection point in 2016 that will be transformational, and if our sales increase as we have forecasted, we expect to be cash flow positive by the end of this year. We believe that the launch and market response to our integrated LightMiner Analytics platform, the partnership with LightMiner and Tableau and the launch of our AirPatrol for Healthcare solution is evidence of this transformation.”

First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Revenue: Total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 were $14.1 million compared to $14.1 million for the comparable period in the prior year. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, mobile, IoT & big data products revenue was $195,000 compared to $143,000 for the prior year period. Storage and Computing revenue was $10.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, and $10.3 million for the prior year period. SaaS Revenues was $829,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and $973,000 during the prior year period. Professional services revenue was $2.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and $2.7 million during the prior year period.

Gross Profit: Total gross profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $3.9 million, compared to $4 million for the comparable period in the prior year. Gross margin for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was approximately 28% compared to approximately 29% for the comparable period in the prior year. This slight difference in margin is based on sales mix.

Net Loss: GAAP net loss attributable to the stockholders for quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $4.3 million compared to $2.9 million for the prior year period. This increase in loss of $1.4 million was primarily attributable to an increase in amortization of intangibles, depreciation and costs of expanding our engineering, sales and marketing operations including hiring more resources in those departments to support the anticipated growth from our AirPatrol and LightMiner products.

Non-GAAP net loss1: For the quarter ended March 31, 2016, pro-forma non-GAAP net loss was $2.9 million, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $1.6 million for the prior year period. For the quarter ended March 31, 2016, non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.11, compared to a non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.08 for the prior year period. Non-GAAP net loss per share is defined as net loss per basic and diluted share adjusted for non-cash items including stock based compensation, amortization of intangibles and one time charges including change in the fair value of shares to be issued and acquisition costs.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA1: Total adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was a loss of $2.5 million compared to loss of $1.3 million for the prior year period. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash stock-based compensation.

1 A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Safe Harbor Statement

All statements in this release that are not based on historical fact are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and the provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. While management has based any forward-looking statements included in this release on its current expectations, the information on which such expectations were based may change. These forward-looking statements rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of the control of Sysorex and its subsidiaries, which could cause actual results to materially differ from such statements. Such risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to, the fluctuation of global economic conditions, the performance of management and employees, the company’s ability to obtain financing, competition, general economic conditions and other factors that are detailed in the company’s periodic and current reports available for review at www.sec.gov. Furthermore, we operate in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment where new and unanticipated risks may arise. Accordingly, investors should not place any reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. We disclaim any intention to, and undertake no obligation to, update or revise forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes that certain financial measures not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") are useful measures of operations. EBIDTA, Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share are non-GAAP measures. Sysorex defines “EBITDA” as net income (loss) before interest, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization and “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash stock-based compensation. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a metric in managing the business. Sysorex defines “pro forma net loss per share” as GAAP net loss per share adjusted for stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and one-time non-recurring charges such as change in the fair value of shares to be issued and acquisition costs.

Management provides Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share measures so that investors will have the same financial information that management uses, which may assist investors in assessing Sysorex’s performance on a period-over-period basis. Adjusted EBITDA or pro forma net loss per share is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss) or any other measure of performance under GAAP, or to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma net loss per share have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Sysorex’s results as reported under GAAP.
