LOWELL, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--SofTech, Inc. (OTCQB: SOFT), a proven provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions today announced its first quarter fiscal year 2014 operating results. Revenue for the three months ended August 31, 2013 was approximately $1.38 million as compared to approximately $1.57 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year, a decline of about 12%. The $190,000 in revenue from the sale of its patents in the prior year accounted for the revenue decline; there was no patent revenue in the current quarter. Net income (loss) for the current quarter was about ($266,000) or ($.30) per share compared to net income of $173,000 or $.17 per share for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
“Our first quarter is often the most challenging and the first quarter of fiscal 2014 fits that pattern”
EBITDA for current quarter was about ($124,000) as compared to about $285,000 for the same period in fiscal year 2013.
“Our first quarter is often the most challenging and the first quarter of fiscal 2014 fits that pattern,” said Joe Mullaney, SofTech’s CEO. “During the current quarter we experienced flat revenue as compared to last year after adjusting for the patent sale in Q1’13. We had increased development expenses as more effort was directed at new releases and we incurred increased professional fees related to the sale of the CADRA product line, the purchase of 170,000 shares of common stock from a significant shareholder and litigation expenses. On a positive note, Q2’14 is off to a great start with license revenue in September totaling almost $250,000, more than all of Q1. Lastly, the sale of our CADRA product line is nearly complete,” he added.
The Statements of Operations for the three-month period ended August 31, 2013 compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year are presented below. A reconciliation of Net income (loss) to EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is also provided.

Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to, among other matters, our outlook for fiscal year 2014 and beyond. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “projects,” “predicts,” “potential” and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on estimates, projections, beliefs, and assumptions and are not guarantees of future events or results. Actual future events and results could differ materially from the events and results indicated in these statements as a result of many factors, including, among others, (1) generate sufficient cash flow from our operations or other sources to fund our working capital needs and growth initiatives; (2) maintain good relationships with our lenders; (3) comply with the covenant requirements of the loan agreement; (4) successfully introduce and attain market acceptance of any new products and/or enhancements of existing products; (5) attract and retain qualified personnel; (6) prevent obsolescence of our technologies; (7) maintain agreements with our critical software vendors; (8) secure renewals of existing software maintenance contracts, as well as contracts with new maintenance customers; (9) secure new business, both from existing and new customers; and (10) the closing of the sale of our CADRA product line.
These and other additional factors that may cause actual future events and results to differ materially from the events and results indicated in the forward-looking statements above are set forth more fully under “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended August 31, 2013. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors that may affect such forward-looking statements.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company has presented EBITDA, which is defined as Net income (loss) plus interest expense, tax expense, non-cash expenses such as depreciation, amortization, non cash loss (gain) and stock based compensation expense. The Company believes that the inclusion of EBITDA helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company’s core operating results and enhances comparing such performance with prior periods, without the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash expenditures. Management uses EBITDA, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring our core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. EBITDA is also the most important measure of performance in measuring compliance with the Company’s debt facility. EBITDA is not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release.
