Fiscal 2015 Guidance:
- Revenues for fiscal 2015 are expected to be between $39 and $40 million, which would represent year-over-year growth in the range of 6 to 8 percent.
- The Company should be close to breakeven on a non-GAAP basis for the fiscal year 2015.
The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, loss before taxes, net loss and loss per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes that this presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing our income generation since stock-based compensation is excluded from the non-GAAP earnings calculation and adjustments are made for Proforma taxes. Since we are in a cumulative loss position, the non-GAAP income tax expense (benefit) for the period ended September 30, 2015 was computed by using a tax rate of 38 percent using the Company’s normalized combined U.S. federal, state and foreign statutory tax rates less various tax adjustments. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The tables below present the differences between non-GAAP earnings and net loss on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-financial measures as reported by Smith Micro Software may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.
