SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- 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 Q3 2012 sales of $4.1 million, down 22% as compared to Q3 2011 which was favorably impacted by the fulfillment of a single large order during the period. Excluding the impact of the record order in Q3 2011, DCT's sales in Q3 2012 would have been up slightly as compared to Q3 2011. Sales for the nine months ending September 30, 2012 increased by 4% to $13.1 million over the same period in 2011.
DCMT reported gross profit of $1.4M during Q3 2012, down 31% as compared to Q3 2011. Gross profit margin of 34% in Q3 2012 decreased from 39% in Q3 2011, due to the mix of products sold. In both cases, the gross margin comparison is impacted by inclusion of the large order shipped in Q3 2011.
Total operating expenses during Q3 2012 remained consistent at $1.8 million as the Company continues its strategic investment spending in personnel and R&D to fuel growth and product expansion. R&D expenditures increased by 55% in Q3 2012 as compared to Q3 2011. SG&A expense as a percentage of sales increased to 32% in Q3 2012 as compared to 28% in Q3 2011, and total operating expense as a percentage of sales increased to 43% in Q3 2012 as compared to 33% in Q3 2011. The large order fulfilled for one customer during Q3 2011 impacted the comparison of operating expenses as a percentage of sales.
Q3 2012 EBITDA* (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was ($119,000) versus $640,000 for the same period in 2011, a decrease of $759,000.
DCT ended Q3 2012 with a strong financial position, reporting no debt, working capital in excess of $5.5 million, and an available borrowing capacity on its bank line of credit of over $1.9 million.
As part of its IP strategy in the area of security, DCT invested in Advanced Cyber Systems Corp ("ACSC") in Q3 2012. ACSC is focused on technology that can assess, analyze and advise on security threats associated with mobile web applications, websites and e-commerce systems. The investment is evidence of our commitment to expedite DCT's evolution into a mobile and cloud-centric solutions provider while emphasizing document and data capture in a secure environment. "We are excited about the possibilities of combining ACSC's expertise in security technologies with DCT's end to end solutions strategy going forward," said David P. Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Document Capture. "DCT's continued strong financial position has enabled us to expand our R&D efforts, and we continue to add value to our legacy hardware as well as develop the next generation of smart device capture and secure scan-to-cloud solutions."

*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 Nine Months Ended September 30, September 30, ------------------ ------------------ 2012 2011 2012 2011 -------- -------- -------- -------- Operating (loss) income $ (374) $ 285 $ (861) $ (637) Adjustments: Depreciation included in operating expenses 11 11 31 36 Stock-based compensation cost - options 224 325 727 971 Fair value of common stock and warrants issued for services rendered 20 19 59 60 -------- -------- -------- -------- EBITDA $ (119) $ 640 $ (44) $ 430 ======== ======== ======== ========
