Named seasoned industry executives Bob Fresneda as TIS Americas President and Andrew Pery  as CMO;

Yossi Dagan, most recently VP Finance at a large SaaS vendor, appointed TIS’ CFO.

Michael Schrader, Chief Executive Officer of Top Image Systems, commented, “Our strong performance in the second quarter reinforces our confidence in our strategy and solidly positions us to continue to execute on our financial and operational program in the second half of the year. We are back on track as a rapidly growing, profitable company and expect to maintain this performance in the coming quarters. Growth in our mobile business is accelerating, as during the first half of 2015 we have already surpassed 90% of our annual mobile revenues for 2014, fortifying our strong belief that this business will increasingly drive growth. In addition, our cloud and SaaS-based offerings are gaining traction to further expand our base of recurring revenues, which represents more than 52% of our total revenues. As proof of this progress and in alignment with the goal we set for 2015, following the quarter’s end we have signed a large multi-year multi-million dollar contract with a top 5 U.S. bank;  this contract will have a strong impact on the company’s recurring revenue run rate.”

Mr. Schrader continued, “Consolidation in our industry is changing the competitive landscape, especially relating to hardware companies looking for software partners to replace prior relationships that may no longer be viable due to consolidations. This climate has created significant business partnership opportunities. We are actively pursuing these opportunities and we are confident that this industry evolution will help us increase our market share. The recent executive appointments of Bob Fresneda to the role of President of TIS Americas, Carsten Nelk to Chief Technology Officer, and now Andrew Pery to the role of CMO enhance our competitive position and reputation as an innovative technology solutions provider. As one of the only independent global software companies in our space, we are unrestricted in pursuing business relationships and well-positioned to capture a significant share of the opportunities that lie ahead.”

Mr. Schrader added, “Effective August 15, 2015, Mr. Yossi Dagan will assume the position of TIS’ Chief Financial Officer, replacing Mr. Lyron Bentovim.  In 2014 the company asked Mr. Bentovim, formerly a member of the Board of Directors, to assume the position of Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer to take responsibility for the post-merger integration of eGistics; following the successful integration of eGistics, Mr. Bentovim is stepping down from his executive role but will continue to advise the company’s chairman on M&A matters. Mr. Dagan most recently held the position of VP of Finance at Kenshoo, a global SaaS company with 600 employees. At Kenshoo, he was responsible for all aspects of finance, including leading the financial planning and analysis. Prior to Kenshoo, Mr. Dagan served as Corporate Controller and acting VP Finance at Imperva Inc., a NYSE-listed company.”

Mr. Schrader concluded, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lyron for his contribution as COO/CFO and invaluable assistance in overseeing the acquisition of eGistics and the successful post-merger integration of TIS and eGistics. I would also like to warmly welcome the new members of our executive management team: Carsten Nelk as CTO; Bob Fresneda as President, TIS Americas; Andrew Pery as CMO; and Yossi Dagan, who will become CFO as of August 15, 2015. I am excited and enthusiastic about the energy, creativity and leadership that this group of talented, experienced and effective managers will undoubtedly contribute to TIS in the long term, while taking full responsibility in the short term to enable TIS to realize our goals for growth and profitability.”

* Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes non-GAAP financial measures, including, without limitation, adjusted EBITDA (which eliminates the impact of interest, taxes, amortization and depreciation expenses, as well as non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other non-recurring items not part of regular business), Adjusted EBITDA margin, Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) (which eliminates the impact of amortization expenses as well as non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other non-recurring items not part of regular business) and Non-GAAP Income (Loss) per share. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures in the tables entitled “GAAP and Non-GAAP Statements of Operations”.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as an addition to TIS’ GAAP results provided in the attached financial statements for the second quarter and six months ended June 31, 2015, and is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The attached tables reconcile each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. TIS’ management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding TIS’ performance by excluding the impact of certain charges and gains that may not be indicative of TIS’ core business operating results. TIS’ management believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing TIS’ performance. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons to TIS’ historical performance and its competitors’ operating results. TIS includes these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.
