CSI Update: HOLD XRSC

XRSC announced Q2 2014 earnings (quarter ended March 31, 2014) on May 8th. Revenues were $12.8 million down from $14.5 million last year. XRSC is a bit similar to BLIN as they are transitioning their legacy software business to a subscription based service and revenues take a hit as they don’t book a big software sale upfront, but rather record it monthly in smaller pieces. But subscription based revenues are generally worth more to a buyer than one-time sales. GAAP net loss was $.07 a share, compared to a gain of $.01 per share last year. Non-GAAP earnings were $1.2 million or $.04 per share compared to $2.2 million or $.08 a share last year. Our valuation rose to $5.60 up from $5.57 last quarter. XRSC is trading at about 50% of our valuation. We will continue to HOLD as results were not that exciting, but the valuation is still compelling.

CSI Update: Dex Media

DXM announced Q1 2014 earnings on May 6th. Revenues were $456 million down from $581 million last year (adjusting for the SuperMedia acquisition). GAAP net loss was $4.74 a share, compared to a loss of $.5.84 per share last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $194 million compared to $230 million last year. Not a bad quarter as YOY declines have been anticipated, but a bit below our expectations. DXM generated $97 million in free cash flow and paid down its debt by $74 million in the quarter. Net debt stands at $2.447 billion. Our valuation rose to $37.98 up from $34.36 last quarter. DXM is trading at about 20%% of our valuation, but due to the high debt level and small number of shares outstanding, relatively small changes in DXM’s results can cause large swings in our valuation. We will continue to HOLD.

CSI Update: Concurrent Computer Earnings April 29th 2014

CCUR announced Q3 2014 earnings after the close today. Revenues were $18.3 million, up 8% from last year and EPS was $.12 up 9% from last year. Net cash was $2.47 per share. Overall a nice quarter. Our valuation fell slightly to $15.01 from $15.10 last quarter. CCUR is trading at 56% of our valuation and cash is 30% of the market cap. If we were not up 98% on this, we would think about buying it here based on the valuation.
