Central-Eastern European countries have exceptional geothermal resources. These resources are either unexploited due to the lack of technological know-how or their utilisation is carried out in an unsustainable way; geothermal district heating projects lack the energy efficiency component and the used thermal water is not reinjected but instead released to surface waters. Geothermal Communities will demonstrate best available technologies in the use of geothermal energy combined with innovative energy-efficiency measures in three different pilot sites (Hungary, Slovakia and Italy). Furthermore the project will integrate a large number of cities as project partners (from Serbia, Romania, Poland and Italy) that either already have ongoing geothermal systems that needs the adoption of new technologies (e.g. Sacueni, Romania) or they would like to implement new systems from scratch with the help of the project partners (e.g. Subotica, Serbia). In addition to the demonstration component through the parallel implementation of three ambitious development works there is also a strong complementary component of research focusing on making geothermal projects more cost efficient and technologically sound. Results of the project activities will be disseminated via straightforward dissemination actions combined with a training programme organised for municipal-level decision makers. Finally, the Mayors Geothermal Club will be set up and will continue operating even after the EC-funded period as a permanent network of city mayors and municipal-level decision makers who are interested in the sustainable utilisation of geothermal energy.

LOWELL, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SofTech, Inc. (OTCQB: SOFT), a proven provider of Product Lifecycle Management (“PLM”) solutions today announced its third quarter fiscal year 2015 operating results. Revenue for the three months ended February 28, 2015 was approximately $.925 million as compared to approximately $1.342 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the current quarter was approximately ($356,000) or ($.40) per share compared to approximately $(339,000) or $(.39) per share for the same period in the prior fiscal year. EBITDA for current quarter was approximately $(171,000) as compared to approximately $(259,000) for the same period in fiscal year 2014. Revenue for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 was approximately $2.8 million as compared to approximately $4.1 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The net loss for the first nine months of the current fiscal year was approximately ($1,307,000) or ($1.47) per share compared to a net loss of approximately $(91,000) or $(.10) per share for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The prior year operating results included a one-time gain from the sale of the CADRA product line of approximately $649,000. EBITDA for the first nine months of the current fiscal year was $(686,000) as compared to approximately $3,580,000 for the same period in fiscal 2014. The EBITDA generated by the sale of the CADRA product line totaled approximately $3,954,000 (gain of $649,000 which included non-cash expenses of $3,305,000) in the nine months ended February 28, 2014. The sale of the CADRA product line was completed on October 18, 2013. Because the Company continued to market and support the technology as a reseller in Europe, the sale did not qualify for presentation as discontinued operations. The decline in revenue and profitability for the three and nine month periods ended February 28, 2015 compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year is almost entirely attributable to the sale of the CADRA product line as depicted in the tables below. The following summarizes total revenue by product line for each of the periods (in thousands, except %): The ProductCenter revenue increased 20.5% in the current quarter as compared to the same period in fiscal 2014. For the nine months ended February 28, 2015, ProductCenter’s revenue increased 8.6% as compared to the same period last fiscal year. Two long-time customers of this technology expanded their usage in fiscal 2015 and were responsible for the majority of the revenue increase. “ProductCenter is showing significant strength in the marketplace in fiscal 2015 as a robust, affordable PLM solution,” said Joe Mullaney, SofTech’s CEO. “ProductCenter’s license revenue year-to-date increased approximately 176% as compared to the same period in the prior year and maintenance renewal rates have improved significantly as compared to the last several fiscal years. Consulting revenue has lagged behind due to a delay in several large projects, however, these projects have begun to ramp up in the fourth quarter,” he added. “The sale of the CADRA product line in 2014 provided the capital and the flexibility for us to make a significant current year investment in the development of a new PLM-based product aimed at the consumer market. The product was created using our employees’ deep PLM expertise and it is currently in beta testing; we expect to be ready for commercial launch this coming summer. We believe this product has the potential to get SofTech on a revenue growth path, an essential element of shareholder value enhancement,” Mullaney concluded. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS The Statements of Operations for the three and nine month periods ended February 28, 2015 compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year are presented below. A reconciliation of Net loss to EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is also provided. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, we changed our accounting policy with regard to certain deferred payments we expect to receive from the sale of the CADRA product line. The effects of this change have been made retrospectively to the prior year three and nine month periods ended February 28, 2014 in accordance with ASC 250, Accounting Changes and Error Corrections. The Balance Sheet as of February 28, 2015 compared to the audited fiscal year-end Balance Sheet as of May 31, 2014 is presented below. SofTech, Inc.

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 (loss) plus interest expense, tax expense, non-cash expenses such as depreciation, amortization and the goodwill write-off related to the sale of our CADRA product line, non-cash loss (gain) and stock based compensation expense. The Company believes that the inclusion of EBITDA helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company’s core operating results and enhances comparing such performance with prior periods, without the effect 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 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.
