WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass., March 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cyalume Technologies Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:CYLU) today reported net income of $2.6 million on revenues of $38.0 million for the full year ending December 31, 2010, versus a net loss of $33.6 million on revenues of $32.2 million for the prior year. The net loss for fiscal 2009 was primarily attributable to goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges.  

Fiscal 2010 adjusted net income, which is net income before amortization and impairment charges, was $4.4 million, compared to adjusted net income of $1.4 million in 2009. Adjusted EBITDA, which is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, foreign currency gains and losses, and certain one-time gains or expenses was $10.7 million compared to $6.2 million in 2009. Adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA are important measures because they present a view of our performance on an ongoing basis without regard to certain one-time gains or expenses such as certain lawsuit settlement gains and corresponding legal fees incurred and impairment charges. Comparable GAAP amounts and a reconciliation to GAAP net income are shown later in this release.

For the three-months ending December 31, 2010 Cyalume reported revenue of $8.2 million compared to revenue of $7.8 million for the same period last year, a 5% increase. Adjusted net income was $0.5 million versus $0.1 million in the prior year fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $1.8 million versus $1.7 million in 2009.

Annual Highlights

  • The Company achieved year over year growth in all major financial categories in 2010:
  • Revenues up 18% to $38.0 million
  • Adjusted Net Income up 213% to $4.4 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA up 73% to $10.7 million
  • Gross margins improved to 50.4% vs. 41.6% in 2009
  • Ending balance sheet cash doubled to $4.1 million
  • The Company continued its leadership in the growing chemiluminescent "green" ammunition payload market with new strategic corporate partnership agreements, product introductions and identified caliber development opportunities for the versatile technology

Subsequent to the end of the year, Cyalume closed the sale of 871,823 shares of common stock to institutional investors in a private placement at a price of $4.60 per share. The consideration paid by investors consisted of approximately $3.5 million in cash and the cancellation of 1,015,000 public warrants, which were valued at $0.50 per warrant. The Company will use the net proceeds to fund general corporate purposes.

Derek Dunaway, Cyalume's President and CEO, said, "We saw significant growth and improved performance in our business in 2010. In addition to an 18% increase in revenues, our overall gross margin improved to a more normal level of approximately 50% yielding healthy adjusted net income growth of over 200%. Furthermore, we continue to work with our strategic partners to identify and execute on all of the significant growth opportunities that our unique environmentally-friendly chemiluminescent ammunition payload technology presents.  Looking forward, Cyalume is better positioned today than ever before to capitalize on its market leading position in chemical light technology."

Results of Operations -- Adjusted Basis

Adjusted net income is an alternative view of performance used by management and we believe that investors' understanding of our performance is enhanced by disclosing this information. We define adjusted net income as the net income of Cyalume excluding amortization expense. The adjusted net income measure is not, and should not be viewed as, a substitute for U.S. GAAP net income. Adjusted net income is an important internal measurement for us. We measure the performance of the overall Company on this basis. The following are examples of how we use adjusted net income:

*      Senior management and the Board of Directors receive a quarterly analysis of our operating results that is prepared on an adjusted net income basis;

*      Our annual budget, as presented to the Board of Directors, is prepared on an adjusted net income basis

Despite the importance of this measure, we stress that adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that has no standardized meaning under U.S. GAAP and therefore, has limits in its usefulness to investors. Due to its non-standardized definition, adjusted net income (unlike U.S. GAAP net income) may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures for other companies. Adjusted net income is presented solely to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses our performance.

Adjusted EBITDA (a Non-GAAP Financial Measure)

Cyalume defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, foreign currency gains or losses and one-time income or expense items. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for establishing internal budgets, goals and certain performance bonuses. Internal financial reports including those provided to the Board of Directors, focus on Adjusted EBITDA. Since Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily an indicator of overall cash flows of Cyalume, management reviews capital budgets and cash flow forecasts in parallel with Adjusted EBITDA analysis. Because Adjusted EBITDA eliminates interest expense, income taxes and depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, foreign currency gains or losses and one-time income or expense items, Cyalume considers this financial measure an important indicator of Cyalume's liquidity, operational strength and performance. Investors may find Adjusted EBITDA useful as it illustrates underlying operating trends in Cyalume's business.

In addition, components of Adjusted EBITDA are a key component in the determination of our compliance with certain covenants under our credit agreements. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net income, cash flows, or other consolidated income or cash flow data presented in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our liquidity or financial condition. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure determined in accordance with GAAP and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, Adjusted EBITDA as discussed may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The use of Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental liquidity measure is useful as it assists management in understanding and evaluating the Company's capacity, excluding the impact of interest, taxes, and non-cash depreciation and amortization charges, for servicing debt and other cash needs, prior to our consideration of the impacts of other potential sources and uses of cash, such as working capital items. Investors may find it useful for these purposes as well. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP, since it omits the impact of interest, taxes and changes in working capital that use or provide cash (such as receivables, payables and inventories) as well as the sources or uses of cash associated with changes in other balance sheet items (such as long-term loss accruals and deferred items). Because Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for the replacement of the assets being depreciated and amortized, which assets will often have to be replaced in the future. Further, Adjusted EBITDA, because it also does not reflect the impact of debt service, income taxes, cash dividends, capital expenditures and other cash commitments, does not represent how much discretionary cash we have available for other purposes. Nonetheless, Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure expected by and useful to our investors, rating agencies and the banking community in the analysis of a Company's ability to service debt, fund capital expenditures and otherwise meet cash needs, respectively. Cyalume also evaluates Adjusted EBITDA because it is clear that movements in these non-GAAP measures impact the Company's ability to attract financing. Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
