Teleconference and Webcast to be Held Today at 4:30 pm ET

MILWAUKEE, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Telkonet, Inc. (OTCQB: TKOI), whose complementary business divisions include EcoSmart™, an energy management technology platform featuring Recovery Time™ technology and EthoStream®, one of the largest hospitality High-Speed Internet Access (HSIA) providers in the world, today announced their 2014 first quarter financial results.

Developer of the revolutionary EcoSmart energy management platform which provides comprehensive savings, management and reporting of a building's energy consumption.

Telkonet management will hold a teleconference and webcast to discuss these results with the financial community today, May 15th at 4:30 pm ET/3:30 pm CT.

Jason Tienor, Telkonet's CEO stated, "While significantly impacted by deferred revenue recognition due to delayed customer signoffs, Telkonet saw traction in a typically slow quarter.  With continued growth of our record backlog entering into the busiest season for our educational market, we remain excited about 2014 and the wins we've seen from business development across our diversified target market segments."

Gene Mushrush, Telkonet's CFO commented, "In accordance with GAAP's revenue recognition guidelines, which require fulfillment of our contractual obligations prior to recognizing revenues associated with those obligations, $0.5 million in progress billings were recorded as deferred revenue at quarter end. This revenue will be recognized based on the timing of customer signoffs, which we anticipate will occur during Telkonet's fiscal second quarter.  In the short term, we've taken the necessary steps to address expenses accordingly."

Highlights for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014:

  • Revenue of $2.6 million, down 16% compared to $3.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
  • Selling, General and Administrative expense of $1.4 million, down 5% compared to $1.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
  • Research and Development expense down 2% compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
  • Executed and paid in full, voluntary disclosure agreement's (VDA's) relating to sales tax liability with 7 states totaling approximately $.09 million.
  • Secured contracts for a record $1.7 million in new EthoStream business during the quarter, resulting in backlog of over $1.5 million.
  • Installation completed for the first full EcoSmart Suite platform deployment in a marquee 400 room hospitality property.
  • Initiated Telkonet's largest single educational deployment to date which will be completed in the 3rd quarter.
  • Awarded Telkonet's largest combined EthoStream/EcoSmart installation to date by a new reseller which has now contracted for three additional projects.

Mr. Tienor continued, "Our first quarter operations have provided a different view of our year to date performance and the remainder of our year.  With a record number of educational projects moving into the summer break and having secured some of our most prestigious projects to date, we look forward to extensive growth in our secondary markets."

NON-GAAP Financial Measures

Telkonet will post to the Company's investor relations web site (www.telkonet.com) any reconciliation of differences between non-GAAP financial information that may be required in connection with issuing the Company's financial results.

The Company, as is common in its industry, uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measurement gauge to demonstrate earnings exclusive of interest and non-cash events. The Company manages its business based on its cash flows. The Company, in its daily management of its business affairs and analysis of its monthly, quarterly and annual performance, makes its decisions based on cash flows, not on the amortization of assets obtained through historical activities. The Company, in managing its current and future affairs, cannot affect the amortization of the intangible assets to any material degree, and therefore uses adjusted EBITDA as its primary management guide. Adjusted EBITDA is not, and should not be considered, an alternative to net income (loss), income (loss) from operations, or any other measure for determining operating performance of liquidity, as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). In assessing the overall health of its business for the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company excluded the following category of expense, described below:

  • Stock-based compensation: The Company believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, varying methodologies for determining stock-based compensation and the assumptions and estimates involved in those determinations, the exclusion of non-cash stock-based compensation expense enhances the ability of management and investors to understand the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation on our operating results. Further, the Company believes that excluding stock-based compensation expense allows for a more transparent comparison of its financial results to the previous year.

Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, a measure of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, investors are cautioned that there are inherent limitations associated with the use of the non-GAAP financial measure as an analytical tool. In particular, the non-GAAP financial measure is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and many of the adjustments to the GAAP financial measure reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in the Company's financial results for the foreseeable future. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing specific information in the reconciliation included in this press release regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measure.
