Document Capture Technologies-DCMT Releases First Quarter 2012 Financial ResultsQuarterly Sales, Gross Profit, EBITDA, Working Capital Rise Versus First Quarter 2011 (May 09, 2012)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- Document Capture Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DCMT), an IP-driven leader in the design, development, manufacture and sale of advanced imaging technologies for over a decade, today announced Q1 2012 revenues of $4.4 million, up 23% over Q1 2011. The Company's $1.7M in gross profit during Q1 2012 was up 41% over Q1 2011. The increased gross profit was driven by the demand for the duplex, or two-sided, products and overall number of scanners sold.
Operating expenses rose to $1.9 million for the quarter versus $1.7 million for Q1 2011, as the Company continues its strategic investment spending in personnel and R&D to fuel growth and product expansion. Q1 2012 EBITDA* (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was $77,000 versus ($175,000) for the same period in 2011, an improvement of $252,000.
DCT's financial position remains strong, with no debt, working capital in excess of $5.6 million in Q1 2012 versus $4.6 million in Q1 2011, and available borrowing capacity of $2.0 million. This is the Company's 10th consecutive same quarter year-over-year increase in revenues.
"Following record sales in 2011, DCT has once again posted gains year-over-year in revenue, gross profit, EBITDA and working capital," said David P. Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Document Capture. "The first quarter was a solid start to 2012 and has allowed us to continue our commitment to developing and expanding our product line and maintaining our industry-leading position in the market place. DCT has reached a point where we can substantially maintain our cost and fixed overhead, while continuing our growth, which we expect will in turn dramatically increase our bottom line in future quarters."
Document Capture's patented technology provides high quality images at extremely low power consumption levels in a compact package. Easy to use, DCT's products are adaptable to a wide variety of businesses. DCT's standard software supports drivers for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Windows CE, Linux and the MAC OS.

*The Company is providing a non-generally accepted accounting principles financial measure, EBITDA (specifically defined by the Company as operating earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation included in operating expenses and amortization), because (i) the Company believes that this figure is helpful in allowing individuals to assess the ongoing financial performance of the business; (ii) the Company uses EBITDA, along with other GAAP measures, as a measure of profitability because EBITDA helps the Company compare its performance on a consistent basis by removing from its operating results the impact of non-cash expenses; and (iii) non-GAAP performance measures provide an additional analytical tool to clarify the Company's results from operations and helps the Company to identify underlying trends in its results of operations.
EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and has limitations because it does not include all items of income and expense that impact the Company's operations. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering the Company's GAAP results. The non-GAAP financial measure the Company uses is not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered an alternative to, measurements required by GAAP. Following is a reconciliation of operating loss to EBITDA (in thousands):
Three Months Ended March 31, -------------------- 2012 2011 --------- --------- Operating loss $ (200) $ (529) Adjustments: Depreciation expense included in operating 10 11 Expense Stock-based compensation cost - options 247 322 Fair value of warrants issued for services rendered 20 21 --------- --------- EBITDA $ 77 $ (175) ========= =========
