LOUISVILLE, Ky., CINCINNATI and COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 15, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTCBB:BEAC) today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2008.

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2008, was $1,571,742 and Gross Profit was $732,817. The Company recorded significant non-cash charges during the period, which contributed to a Net Loss of ($1,279,765). Adjusted EBIDTA(1) for the period was ($656,521).

"The three months ended March 31, 2008, represent the first quarter of consolidated operations for our recently acquired businesses," commented Bruce Widener, CEO of Beacon Solutions. "Our primary objectives during the quarter were to 1) consolidate the various operational elements of our initial acquisitions into a single core infrastructure; 2) integrate our acquired sales forces into a cohesive organization capable of cross selling multiple services and product lines; 3) begin establishing a manageable sales funnel for 2008. We successfully accomplished each of theses objectives during the first quarter," concluded Widener.

"In addition, we hired additional sales executives in each of our primary markets, increasing the size of our sales organization by over 20%; launched a network circuit sales group; re-branded our customer facing sales and support material under the Beacon Solutions brand; and began to capitalize on cross-selling opportunities among our different product and service groups," added Rick Mills, President of Beacon Solutions. "As a result of these and other efforts, we anticipate revenue for the quarter ending June 30, 2008, will exceed $2.6 million (an increase of 63% over the current period)."

Please see footnote 1 below for our definition of Adjusted EBITDA, a description of why we use Adjusted EBITDA and important disclaimers regarding Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the appropriate GAAP measure is also included in footnote 1.

(1) Explanation of Adjusted EBITDA, a Non-GAAP Financial Measure

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted for stock based compensation expense and other income. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA, which is a financial measure that is not defined by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S., or GAAP, is a useful performance metric because it eliminates significant non-cash and/or one-time charges to earnings. It is important to note that non-GAAP measures such as Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, net income, cash flows, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The items excluded from adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and evaluating financial performance and liquidity. A reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA is as follows for the quarters ended March 31, 2008.
