Sajan, Inc. Announces Financial Results for 1st Quarter 2014

May 6, 2014 - River Falls, WI

Sajan, Inc. (OTCQB: SAJA), a leading provider of global language services and translation management system technology, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Revenues were $6,154,000, which represented an increase of 11% over revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 of $5,524,000. This was the Company's 5th consecutive quarter of double digit revenue growth. The Company reported a net loss of $400,000, or $0.02 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to net income of $16,000, or $0.00 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $52,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to earnings of $295,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. See the section entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss).

During the quarter the Company made investments in operations and research and development activities which are reflected in its operating expenses. These included adding project coordinators and other operating personnel to support anticipated revenue growth, especially from new customers attained in late 2013, and resulted in an increase in the Company's cost of sales both in dollars and as a percentage of revenue. The Company also added new research and development engineers early in the quarter. These were added to accelerate enhancements to Transplicity, Sajan's proprietary industry-leading translation management system technology.

"The quarter's results were in line with our expectations," said Shannon Zimmerman, CEO of Sajan. "Our 5th consecutive quarter of double digit revenue growth reflects our success in expanding our customer base."

"In order to support our expected growth in business from several of our new customers, we made investments in additional operating personnel in the quarter. We are excited about the opportunity these newer customers provide us. We also continue to invest in our Transplicity Translation Management Platform that is used by both our clients and our operations teams. Our R & D efforts are designed to both further differentiate us from our competitors and improve efficiency for our service teams. Transplicity has and continues to be a key factor in our new client wins over the last several quarters."

============= =============

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by taking net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP, and adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. We believe that this non-GAAP measure of financial results provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Our management uses this non-GAAP measure to compare our performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and for budgeting and planning purposes. This measure is also used in financial reports prepared for management and our board of directors. We believe that the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Our management does not consider this non-GAAP measure in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of this non-GAAP financial measure is that it excludes significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our consolidated financial statements. In addition, it is subject to inherent limitations as it reflects the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining this non-GAAP financial measure. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents this non-GAAP financial measure in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
