Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $74.3 million, an increase of 12% from $66.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $5.1 million or $0.76 per diluted share compared to net income of $6.1 million or $0.92 per diluted share for the same period a year ago.  Excluding income from discontinued operations, net income from continuing operations was $4.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, or $0.71 per diluted share.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we also report adjusted EBITDA.  The method we use to calculate adjusted EBITDA is not in accordance with GAAP, is likely to differ from the methods used by other companies for similarly titled measures and should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. 

We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to both management and investors and is an additional measurement which may be used to evaluate our operating performance. Our management and Board of Directors use adjusted EBITDA as part of their reporting and planning process and it is the primary measure we use to evaluate our operating performance.  In addition, we have historically reported adjusted EBITDA to the investment community.  We also believe that the financial analysts who regularly follow and report on us and the business sector in which we compete use adjusted EBITDA to prepare their financial performance estimates to measure our performance against other sector participants and to project our future financial results.

We define adjusted EBITDA as earnings or loss from continuing operations before gain on sale of non-marketable securities, interest and other expense, income taxes, stock-based compensation and depreciation.  Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain expenses that we believe are not directly related to our core operating results.  Although some of the items may recur on a regular basis, management does not consider activities associated with these items as core to its operations.  With respect to stock-based compensation, we recognize expenses associated with stock-based compensation that require management to make assumptions about our common stock, such as expected future stock price volatility, the anticipated duration of outstanding stock options and awards and the forfeiture rate.  While other forms of expenses (such as cash compensation, inventory costs and real estate costs) are reasonably correlated to our underlying business and such costs are incurred principally or wholly in the particular fiscal period being reported, stock-based compensation expense is not reasonably correlated to the particular fiscal period in question, but rather is based on expected future events that have no relationship (and in certain instances, an inverse relationship) with how well we currently operate our business.

NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS: This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on our current expectations, and involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements contained herein include statements regarding our ability to take advantage of future business opportunities.  Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements due to various factors, including: popularity and demand for our retail products; management's strategy, plans and objectives for future operations; employee relations and our ability to attract and retain highly qualified personnel; our ability to continue to invest in developing and acquiring new products; competition, competitors and our ability to compete; liquidity and capital resources; the outcome of any litigation to which we are a party; our accounting policies; and sufficiency of our cash resources and investments to meet our operating and working capital requirements.    Investors should consult our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, sec.gov, including the risk factors section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, for further information regarding these and other risks of our business. All forward-looking statements included in this press release are based upon information available to us as of the date hereof, and we do not assume any obligations to update such statements or the reasons why actual results could differ materially from those projected in such statements.
