TEL AVIV, Israel, May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperCom (SPCB), a global provider of secure solutions for the e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors today provided an update around the FY 2018 audit and preliminary selected financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.
The 2018 financial audit is in its advanced stages. This audit, while not yet complete, has potential to impact certain elements of the FY 2018 financial results, hence management has decided to wait until the audit is complete before announcing FY 2018 results. Upon completion of the audit, SuperCom will also file its Annual Report on Form 20-F for FY 2018 and set up an investor conference call to discuss the results.
Meanwhile, the company can share preliminary information on unaudited first quarter 2019 financials. Based on preliminary estimates, the following results are expected:
- Revenue in the range of $5.0 million to $5.8 million
- Gross Profit margin in the range of 51% to 55%
- *EBITDA in the range of $1.4 million to $1.9 million
The anticipated financial results discussed in this press release are based on management's preliminary unaudited analysis of financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. As of the date of this press release, the Company has not completed its financial statement reporting process for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. During the course of the Company's quarter- closing procedures, the Company may identify items that would require it to make adjustments, which may be material, to the information presented above. As a result, the estimates above constitute forward-looking information and are subject to risks and uncertainties, including possible adjustments to preliminary financial results.
*EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure used by the company to represent earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other non-cash items such as stock based compensation and foreign exchange currency loss/gains.
With respect to such non-U.S. GAAP financial measure included in the preliminary results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019, a quantitative reconciliation to U.S. GAAP is not available without unreasonable efforts.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this release of operating results also contains non-GAAP financial measures, which SuperCom believes are the principal indicators of the operating and financial performance of its business. Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provided are useful to investors' understanding and assessment of the Company's on-going core operations and prospects for the future, as the charges eliminated are not part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as a basis for strategic decisions, forecasting future results and evaluating the Company's current performance. However, such measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, or superior to, operating loss and or net income (loss) or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or any other measures of our cash flows or liquidity.
