“2018 was a transitional year for Sysorex as we have successfully separated from our former parent and we are now focused on our core business in delivering information technology solutions and services to our federal, state and local customers. The federal civilian and defense market budget increased over 2018 for the 2019 government fiscal year from $89.6 billion to $90.8 billion for information technology spending,” said Zaman Khan, CEO of Sysorex. “We have several Best-In-Class contracts that are accessible by all government agencies and some state and local customers.”

“Our major focus after the separation of our former parent was to focus on reducing the trade debt that we inherited, which we have reduced from $23 million, as of January 1, 2018, to $11.1 million, as of December 31, 2018. We have also added several new vendors to our portfolio of offerings, became first tier subcontractors on recently awarded prime contracts to large systems integrators, and we have created a pipeline of strategic capture that we are pursuing in 2019. Additionally, we are actively working on improving our cash position and are investigating potential acquisition opportunities. With all these activities, I am pleased with our progress, which we believe will help us move towards positive cash flow,” Mr. Khan concluded.

2018 Financial Results

Net Revenue: Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018 were $4.5 million compared to $41.2 million in 2017; a decrease of approximately $36.7 million, or 89%.

Gross Profit: The gross profit margin for the year ended December 31, 2018 was 50% compared to 20% for the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase in gross margin is primarily attributable to the adoption of Accounting Standards Codification 606, principal versus agent, where certain maintenance and software contracts costs are netted against revenues and not recorded in cost of goods sold.

GAAP Net Loss: Net loss attributable to stockholders of Sysorex for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $7.9 million compared to $16.9 million for the comparable period in the prior year. This decrease in net loss of approximately $9 million was primarily attributable to the $7.4 million lower other income/expenses in addition to a $1.6 million decrease in Other Income (Expense) which was primarily attributable to reduced interest charges and an extinguishment loss on debt modification in 2017 of $900,000.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2018 was a loss of $4.8 million compared to a loss of $4.9 million for the prior year period. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash items.

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”.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes that certain financial measures not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) are useful measures of operations. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Sysorex defines “EBITDA” as net income (loss) before interest, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as the matrix in which it manages the business and Sysorex defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA plus adjustments for other income or expense items, non-recurring items and non-cash items.

Management provides Adjusted EBITDA 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 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 has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Sysorex’s results as reported under GAAP.
