For the three months ended March 31, 2012, Radiant reported a net loss attributable to shareholders of $74,600 on $70.7 million of revenues, or $0.00 per basic and fully diluted share, including $141,000 in non-recurring transaction costs related to the Company's recent acquisitions and $439,000 in non-recurring transition and legal costs which are principally associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA Distribution Services, Inc. ("DBA"). For the three months ended March 31, 2011, Radiant reported net income attributable to shareholders of $771,000 on $42.0 million of revenues, or $0.03 per basic and $0.02 per fully diluted share.
For the nine months ended March 31, 2012, Radiant reported net income attributable to shareholders of $998,000 on $215.2 million of revenues, or $0.03 per basic and fully diluted share, including $409,000 in non-recurring transaction costs related to the Company's recent acquisitions and $1,233,000 in non-recurring transition and legal costs which are principally associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA. For the nine months ended March 31, 2011, Radiant reported net income of $2,270,000 on $132.9 million of revenues, or $0.07 per basic and fully diluted share, including a charge on litigation settlement of $150,000.
The Company reported adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of $1,608,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, which includes $305,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA operations as well as $134,000 in nonrecurring legal costs, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1,540,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Excluding the $439,000 in non-recurring transition and legal costs, the Company would have reported $2,047,000 in adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2012, for an increase of $507,000 over the comparable prior year period.
The Company also reported adjusted EBITDA of $5,187,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, which includes $868,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA and $365,000 in other non-recurring legal costs, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $4,922,000 for the comparable prior year period. Excluding the $1,233,000 in non-recurring costs, the Company would have reported $6,420,000 in adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, for an increase of $1,498,000 over the comparable prior year period. A reconciliation of our adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure appears later in this release.
The Company has also provided additional prior period analysis using pro forma results of operations presented as if Radiant had acquired DBA, Isla and ALBS as of July 1, 2011 which will be available in the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
"We remain very pleased with our overall performance and progress in the integration of our February 2012 acquisition of New York- JFK based ALBS and December 2011 acquisition of Laredo, Texas based Isla International said Bohn Crain, Chairman and CEO. Both of these gateway operations have been fully integrated into our platform and have made an immediate and positive impact. For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, we posted record revenues of $70.7 million, an improvement of $28.7 million or 68.0% over the comparable prior year period in what is historically our slowest seasonal quarter. Net transportation revenues also increased 56.0% to $20.3 million as compared to $13.0 million for the comparable prior year period."
"These positive results were somewhat frustrated as a result of our on-going dispute with the former DBA shareholders and their breach of non-competition obligations in Los Angeles along with significant non-recurring legal expenses that we have incurred in connection with this and other matters. As we look at our operating costs as a function of net revenues, we saw reductions in agent commission expense (from 67.9% to 60.3%) partially offset by increases in our personnel costs (from 12.1% to 16.5%). This general dynamic is as expected with the composition of our network now including significant company owned operations in Newark, Los Angeles, Laredo and New York-JFK. We also reported significant increases in our selling, general and administrative expenses during the quarter which were 14.9% of net revenues for the quarter, as compared to 8.5% of net revenues for the comparable prior year period. These higher costs were driven, in part, by the incremental facilities costs of our new company owned locations which were as expected, as well as by the non-recurring transaction expenses of approximately $141,000 incurred in connection with our recent acquisitions and approximately $134,000 in legal expenses which we incurred in connection with our up-listing to the NYSE Amex and the on-going dispute with the former DBA shareholders and other legal matters. In addition, we also experienced a significant increase in depreciation and amortization expense (from 1.9% to 5.1%) as a result of our recent acquisition activity and corresponding increase in amortizable intangibles."
"As we continue to rationalize the historical DBA operations acquired in April of 2011, we have identified an additional $305,000 in non-recurring transition costs as a result of combining the historical Airgroup and DBA company owned locations in New Jersey into a single combined facility. These cost synergies were captured in May of this year and will not be part of our cost structure moving forward."
"For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, we also reported adjusted EBITDA of $1,608,000, which includes the $305,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with our New Jersey operations historically operated as DBA as well as the $134,000 in non-recurring legal costs, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1,540,000 for the comparable prior year period, for an increase of $68,000. Excluding the $439,000 in non-recurring transition and legal costs associated, we would have reported $2,047,000 in adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2012, for an increase of $507,000 and 32.9% over the comparable prior year period."
Mr. Crain continued, "We are reaffirming our guidance for our fiscal year ending June 30, 2012 with normalized EBITDA of approximately $10.5 million on $295.0 million in revenues which includes only 7 months of operations from our new Laredo gateway and only 4 months of operations from our new New York-JFK gateway. We are also reaffirming our preliminary guidance for our fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 with normalized EBITDA of approximately $14.0 million on $330.0 million in revenues for. These projection are burdened by degradation in performance of our company owned operations in Los Angeles and exclude any benefit that we might recognize in the future as a result of our $1.8 million claim against the former shareholders of DBA or our ability to enforce the non-competition obligations contemplated in that transaction. A reconciliation of our normalized EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure appears later in this release.
Supplemental Pro Forma Information
We believe that supplemental disclosure of our adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for stock-based compensation, unusual items and other non-cash costs is a useful measure for investors because it eliminates the effect of certain non-cash costs and provides an important metric for our business. A reconciliation of annual pro forma adjusted EBITDA amounts to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure is as follows:
(1) Excluding $305,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA and $134,000 in non-recurring legal costs, the Company's adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2012 would have been $2,047,000. Excluding $868,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA and $365,000 in non-recurring legal costs, the Company's adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 would have been $6,420,000.
Our estimate of future revenues and profits is based on the assumption that the cumulative historical financial results of operations of the Company (as normalized for nonrecurring costs) for the most recent 12 months ending March 31, 2012 are indicative of future financial performance of our base business and that the historical financial performance of the Company's December 2011 acquisition of Laredo, Texas based Isla International and February 2012 acquisition of New York-JFK based ALBS are indicative of future financial performance of these acquired operations. Further, these projections exclude the impact of any further acquisitions, new agent stations, benefit from the DBA arbitration proceeding or further improvement in the economic climate. A reconciliation of estimated annual adjusted EBITDA (as normalized for non-recurring expenses) for fiscal years ending June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2013 amounts to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure is as follows:

Reconciliation of EBITDA to Net Income (Loss) and Net Cash Provided By Operating Activities
As used in this report, adjusted EBITDA means earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for stock-based compensation, transaction and severance costs, changes in contingent consideration and other non-cash charges consistent with the financial covenants of our senior credit facility. We believe that adjusted EBITDA, as presented, represents a useful method of assessing the performance of our operating activities, as it reflects our earnings trends without the impact of certain non-cash charges and other non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by our creditors in assessing debt covenant compliance. We understand that although securities analysts frequently use EBITDA in their evaluation of companies, it is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. EBITDA is not intended as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance, nor as an alternative to any other measure of performance in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
The following is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to both net income (loss) and cash flow provided by operating activities:
