I have always been fascinated by the twisting, turning and bending like a pretzel that certain senior management teams do to make their company’s seem profitable on a quarterly basis. While I would normally not pick on this company, the 35% jump in share price today is beyond extreme and unwarranted.

“Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $2.0 million, compared with non-GAAP net income of $5.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 excludes restructuring and impairment charges of $9.0 million and the related tax effect, as well as tax expense of $3.0 million relating to the valuation allowance against deferred tax assets. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 excludes restructuring and impairment charges of $16.8 million and the related tax effect.”

So, in reality they really were not profitable. In addition, on a year over year basis revenue FELL SHARPLY.

“Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $131.4 million, compared with revenue of $147.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.”

That’s an almost 11% decline in revenue in one year. Pretty steep. And this was pretty funny too.

“Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $0.04, compared with non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share of $0.12 for the fourth quarter of 2014.”

Obviously, if you add back the full GAAP items, they actually showed a decent sized loss. Later in their release you’ll find this:

“Fully diluted loss per common share for the year ended December 31, 2015, was $1.54 compared with fully diluted earnings per common share of $0.21 for the year ended December 31, 2014.”

Those are terrible results on a year over year basis. This is not an 80-90 point gainer, but based on the overreaction, I am looking for 20-30 points on my red thumb.

A short rebound is due in my uneducated opinion
