Concurrent Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Results
ATLANTA, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global provider of high-performance Linux® and storage solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2015.
"In the second quarter we achieved a number of milestones in the business, including field deployment of our new Aquari scale-out storage platform with multiple customers, setting a new high water mark for gross margins, and expansion of our footprint in each of our target markets," said Derek Elder, CEO and President of Concurrent. "While we are encouraged by our progress, some customer spending decisions continue to delay and we are therefore revising our full year revenue expectations to a range of $58 to $60 million."

Recent Company Highlights
Non-GAAP Financial Measurements
To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this news release provides information concerning the Company's Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in tables immediately following the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
For purposes of this news release, Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP net income, less interest income and other income (expense), net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, share-based compensation expense and gain on the sale of assets. The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA important to understanding its historical results and identifying current and future trends impacting its business. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare the Company's performance to that of prior periods and evaluate the Company's financial and operating results on a consistent basis from period to period. The Company also believes this measure, when viewed in combination with the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends. The adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results, trends and performance.
Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, however, including the following:
The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to the Company's financial results determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies, including other companies in our industry.
