Kendall Hunt, Chairman & CEO.  "We do, however, have a strong base of business to build upon in both the Banking and in the Enterprise and Application Security markets.  As we go forward, we will be assessing every operation, with a focus on our investments in the Enterprise and Application Security market and our cloud-based services products.  Our goal will be to make our company more efficient in 2014 and beyond."

"We began our detailed review of our investments earlier this year," stated Jan Valcke, VASCO's President and COO.  "As a result of that review, we decided to close our R&D facility in Brisbane Australia, which was announced earlier this week, and to transfer the responsibility for the development of those products to our engineers in Vienna.  While the review will be ongoing, we will not lose focus on continuing to invest in our growth areas.  We are pleased with our recent acquisition of Cronto and the integration of their technology into ours is going well.  Both existing customers and potential new customers are showing a high level of interest in the Cronto technology."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP, but Company management also evaluates its performance using EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS.  The Company's management believes that these measures provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business and facilitates comparisons to our historical operating results. 

These non-GAAP measures are not measures of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives or substitutes for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.   While we believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful within the context described below, they are in fact incomplete and are not a measure that should be used to evaluate our full performance or our prospects. Such an evaluation needs to consider all of the complexities associated with our business including, but not limited to, how past actions are affecting current results and how they may affect future results, how we have chosen to finance the business, and how taxes affect the final amounts that are or will be available to shareholders as a return on their investment.

EBITDA

We define EBITDA as net income from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We use EBITDA as a simplified measure of performance for use in communicating our performance to investors and analysts and for comparisons to other companies within our industry. As a performance measure, we believe that EBITDA presents a view of our operating results that is most closely related to serving our customers. By excluding interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization we are able to evaluate performance without considering decisions that, in most cases, are not directly related to meeting our customers' requirements and were either made in prior periods (e.g., depreciation and amortization), or deal with the structure or financing of the business (e.g., interest) or reflect the application of regulations that are outside of the control of our management team (e.g., taxes). Similarly, we find that the comparison of our results to those of our competitors is facilitated when we do not need to consider the impact of those items on our competitors' results.

Adjusted Net Income & Adjusted Diluted EPS

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS, as net income or EPS from continuing operations before the consideration of long-term incentive compensation expenses and the amortization of purchased intangible assets.  We use these measures to assess the impact of our performance excluding items that though they are recurring, can significantly impact the comparison of our results between periods and the comparison to competitors.

Long-term incentive compensation for management and others is directly tied to performance and this measure allows management to see the relationship of the cost of incentives to the performance of the business operations directly if such incentives are based on that period's performance.  To the extent that such incentives are based on performance over a period of several years, there may be periods which have significant adjustments to the accruals in the period but which relate to a longer period of time, and which can make it difficult to assess the results of the business operations in the current period. In addition, the Company's long-term incentives generally reflect the use of restricted stock grants or cash awards while other Companies may use different forms of incentives the cost of which is determined on a different basis, which makes a comparison difficult.

The Company also excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets because it believes that the amount of such expenses in any given period may not be correlated directly to the performance of the business operations and that such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions, the full amortization of previously acquired intangible assets or the write down of such assets due to an impairment event.

Forward Looking Statements:
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933.  These forward-looking statements (1) are identified by use of terms and phrases such as "expect", "believe", "will", "anticipate", "emerging", "intend", "plan", "could", "may", "estimate", "should", "objective", "goal", "possible", "potential", "projected"  and similar words and expressions, but such words and phrases are not the exclusive means of identifying them, and (2) are subject to risks and uncertainties and represent our present expectations or beliefs concerning future events. VASCO cautions that the forward-looking statements are qualified by important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.  Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated above include, among others, our ability to integrate and effectively sell Cronto's technology, our ability to recover amounts held in escrow related to our acquisition of DigiNotar and unanticipated costs associated with DigiNotar's bankruptcy or potential claims that may arise in connection with the hacking incidents at DigiNotar.  Additional risks, uncertainties and other factors have been described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and include, but are not limited to, (a) risks of general market conditions, including currency fluctuations and the uncertainties resulting from turmoil in world economic and financial markets, (b) risks inherent to the computer and network security industry, including rapidly changing technology, evolving industry standards, increasingly sophisticated hacking attempts, increasing numbers of patent infringement claims, changes in customer requirements, price competitive bidding, and changing government regulations, and (c) risks specific to VASCO, including, demand for our products and services, competition from more established firms and others, pressures on price levels and our historical dependence on relatively few products, certain suppliers and certain key customers. Thus, the results that we actually achieve may differ materially from any anticipated results included in, or implied by these statements. Except for our ongoing obligations to disclose material information as required by the U.S. federal securities laws, we do not have any obligations or intention to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances in the future or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
