SofTech Announces Q3 Fiscal Year 2013 Operating Results

LOWELL, Mass. – April 16, 2013 – SofTech, Inc. (OTCQB: SOFT), a proven provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions today announced its third quarter fiscal 2013 operating results. Revenue for the three months ended February 28, 2013 was $1.459 million, a decrease of 12.1% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. The net loss was $(14,000) or $(.01) per share for the three months ended February 28, 2013, as compared to net income of $137,000 or $.14 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Revenue for the nine months ended February 28, 2013 was $4.8 million, a decrease of 2.6% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. Net income increased 9% to $411,000 or $.41 per share for the nine months ended February 28, 2013, from net income of $377,000 or $.38 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.

During the current quarter, the Company reduced its outstanding debt by $495,000 bringing its total debt to $1.645 million, its lowest quarter ending outstanding debt position since August 31, 1997. Since the March 2011 Recapitalization Transaction the Company has paid down its debt by $1.255 million.

"Last quarter we had our best revenue quarter since the Recapitalization Transaction," said Joe Mullaney, SofTech's CEO. "This quarter we experienced our weakest revenue quarter as some license revenue orders we were expecting did not close. Despite the revenue weakness in the current quarter we still generated nearly $200K of EBITDA and more than $300K of cash from operating activities. In addition to strengthening our balance sheet, our consulting revenue increased 45% in the current quarter compared to the same period in fiscal 2012. While disappointed with the product revenue, the pipeline is sufficient to get back on track in the next several quarters," he added.

"Although the debt outstanding at the end of the quarter is less than at any point in more than 15 years, it is due in full on February 28, 2014 and has therefore been classified as a current liability. We are actively engaged in refinancing activities and based, on those efforts, we are comfortable that we can meet our liquidity needs over the course of the next year," Mullaney stated.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to, among other matters, our outlook for fiscal year 2013 and beyond. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as "may," "will," "should," "could," "would," "expects," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "projects," "predicts," "potential" and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on estimates, projections, beliefs, and assumptions and are not guarantees of future events or results. Actual future events and results could differ materially from the events and results indicated in these statements as a result of many factors, including, how successful the buyer of our patents will be in its efforts to monetize them and our ability to: (1) generate sufficient cash flow from our operations or other sources to fund our working capital needs and growth initiatives; (2) maintain good relationships with our lender; (3) comply with the covenant requirements of the loan agreement; (4) successfully introduce and attain market acceptance of any new products and/or enhancements of existing products; (5) attract and retain qualified personnel; (6) prevent obsolescence of our technologies; (7) maintain agreements with our critical software vendors; (8) secure renewals of existing software maintenance contracts, as well as contracts with new maintenance customers; and (9) secure new business, both from existing and new customers, among others.

These and other additional factors that may cause actual future events and results to differ materially from the events and results indicated in the forward-looking statements above are set forth more fully under "Risk Factors" in the Company's Form S-1 Registration Statement (No. 333-174818) and the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended February 28, 2013. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors that may affect such forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company has presented EBITDA, which is defined as Net income plus interest expense, tax expense, non-cash expenses such as depreciation, amortization, non cash loss (gain) and stock based compensation expense, non-recurring professional fees. The Company believes that the inclusion of EBITDA helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company's core operating results comparing such performance with prior periods, without the distortion of non-operating expenses and non-cash expenditures. Management uses EBITDA, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring our core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. EBITDA is also the most important measure of performance in measuring compliance with the Company's debt facilities. EBITDA is not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release.
