Wayside Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTG) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. The results will be discussed in a conference call to be held on Friday, April 26, 2013 at 10:00 AM Eastern time. The dial-in telephone number is (866) 793-1341 and the pass code is "WSTG." This conference call will be available via live webcast -- in listen-mode only -- at www.earnings.com.

"I am pleased to report solid quarterly results as compared to Q1 2012's exceptional revenues and considering the persistent downward price competition in the distribution segment. Our Lifeboat Distribution segment delivered solid results as it continued to execute on its strategic plan. Our TechXtend segments revenues were down compared to an exceptionally strong Q1 last year, which benefited from a strong level of extended payment term sales transaction business in such prior period," said Simon F. Nynens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Cash and cash equivalents amounted to $13.6 million, representing 42% of equity as of March 31, 2013. Working capital amounted to $23.0 million, representing 72% of equity as of March 31, 2013.

Net sales for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 decreased 1% or $0.9 million to $66.0 million, compared to $66.9 million for the same period in 2012. Total sales for the first quarter of 2013 for our Lifeboat Distribution segment were $53.9 million compared to $49.3 million in the first quarter of 2012, representing an increase of $4.6 million or 9%. Total sales for the first quarter of 2013 for our TechXtend segment were $12.1 million compared to $17.6 million in the first quarter of 2012, representing a decrease of $5.5 million or 31%.

The 9% increase in net sales for the Lifeboat Distribution segment was mainly a result of the strengthening of our account penetration, our continued focus on the expanding virtual infrastructure-centric business and the addition of several key product lines. The 31% decrease in net sales in the TechXtend segment was primarily due to a decrease in extended payment term sales transactions as compared to an exceptionally strong extended payment term sales in the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Gross Profit for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $5.3 million, a 5% decrease as compared to $5.6 million for the first quarter of 2012. Gross profit for our Lifeboat segment in the first quarter of 2013 and 2012 was $3.8 million for each period. Although Lifeboat Distribution's net sales increased its gross profit remained flat due to a decrease in its gross profit margin. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment in the first quarter of 2013 was $1.5 million compared to $1.8 million for the first quarter of 2012, representing a 14% decrease. This decrease for the TechXtend segment was primarily due to the decreased sales volume, including a reduced level of extended payment term sales transactions in the first quarter of 2013. Gross profit margin (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 was 8.1% compared to 8.3% for the first quarter of 2012. 

Total selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the first quarter of 2013 were $3.9 million compared to $4.0 million for the first quarter of 2012, representing a decrease of $0.1 million or 1.8%. This decrease is primarily the result of a decrease in commissions and bonus expense, which are based on gross profit, offset by an increase in salary and related expenses, due to increased headcount in sales, finance and operations to support business growth, in 2013 compared to 2012.

Net income and diluted earnings per share for each of the first quarters of 2013 and 2012 were $1.0 million and $0.22, respectively.

On April 24, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $.16 per share of its common stock payable May 17, 2013 to shareholders of record on May 7, 2013.
