OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Nov. 11, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global (Nasdaq:TMNG), a leading provider of professional services to the global communications, digital media, technology, and financial services industries, reported financial results for its 2010 third quarter ended October 2, 2010. All per share amounts have been adjusted to reflect the 1-for-5 reverse stock split of the Company's common stock effective February 7, 2010.

Revenues in the third quarter of 2010 were $16.4 million, compared to $16.8 million in the 2009 third quarter and $17.0 million in the 2010 second quarter. The year-over-year decline was due to lower revenue contributions from carrier customers and the European market, partially offset by an increase in strategic consulting services. During the quarter, TMNG's gross margin was 37.9%, compared with 40.8% in the third quarter of 2009 and 39.1% in the second quarter of 2010. Margins were negatively impacted by start-up expenses related to the SmartXchangeSM solution, which was launched early in the fourth quarter.

TMNG Global reported a net loss of ($0.7) million on a GAAP basis, or ($0.10) per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010, compared with a net loss of ($0.5) million, or ($0.08) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009. After adjusting for the after tax impact of net realized gains and losses on auction rate securities, depreciation and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, the non-GAAP adjusted net income was $0.1 million or $0.01 per diluted share during the third quarter of 2010. The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 was $0.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.

"TMNG Global generated positive non-GAAP adjusted net income in the third quarter, even though our revenue level was lower on a sequential basis, as anticipated. This solid execution is testament to our disciplined operating and expense management, which remains a cornerstone of our strategy to drive year-over-year growth in 2010," said Richard Nespola, TMNG Global Chairman and CEO. "We are positioning the business well for 2011, with a solid foundation in key areas including revenue assurance, mobility, cloud computing, and content delivery, which are driving a healthy new business pipeline. While our performance this quarter was not as strong as we would have liked, we are cautiously optimistic that our initiatives will bear fruit in the coming year."

Financial Results for the Thirty-Nine Weeks Ended October 2, 2010

For the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2010, revenues were $50.8 million, compared with $47.8 million in the comparable period of fiscal year 2009. The growth was driven by an approximately 90% increase in strategic consulting services revenue from the comparable period of fiscal year 2009 due to strength in the first half of the year. TMNG Global's gross margin was 38.3% during the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2010, compared with 41.1% in the comparable period of fiscal year 2009. Margins were negatively impacted by pricing pressure associated with a marginal economy.

Net loss for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2010 was ($2.0) million or ($0.28) per diluted share, compared with a net loss of ($3.1) million or ($0.44) per diluted share in the comparable period of fiscal year 2009. Non-GAAP adjusted net income, adjusted for the after tax impact of net realized gains and losses on auction rate securities, depreciation and amortization expense, and share-based compensation, was approximately $0.5 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2010. The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 3, 2009 was ($0.1) million or ($0.02) per diluted share.

In addition to reporting net loss and net loss per share on a GAAP basis, this press release contains certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the schedule entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss)" that accompanies this press release. In making these non-GAAP adjustments, the Company took into account certain non-cash expenses and benefits, including tax effects as applicable, and the impact of certain items that are generally not expected to be on-going in nature or that are unrelated to the Company's core operations. Management believes the exclusion of these items provides a useful basis for evaluating underlying business performance, but should not be considered in isolation and is not in accordance with, or a substitute for, evaluating Company performance utilizing GAAP financial information. The Company believes that providing such adjusted results allows investors and other users of the Company's financial statements to better understand TMNG Global's comparative operating performance for the periods presented.

TMNG Global's management uses the non-GAAP financial measure in its own evaluation of the Company's performance, particularly when comparing performance to the prior year's period and on a sequential basis. TMNG Global's non-GAAP measure may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even if similar terms are used to identify such measures. Although TMNG Global's management believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating the performance of its business, TMNG Global acknowledges that items excluded from such measure have a material impact on the Company's net loss and net loss per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, management uses non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP results. Investors and other users of our financial information should also consider the above factors when evaluating TMNG Global's results.
