Analysis of Results:

Paragon's third quarter results for the period ending September 30, 2017 is the second full quarter to include the consolidated results of SED International de Colombia (SEDC), our majority owned subsidiary which was acquired on March 1, 2017.

The net loss of $(851,000) attributable to Paragon Technologies, Inc. and Subsidiaries in the third quarter is a result of a one-time adjustment resulting from the 20% minority owned interest in SEDC owned by the President of SEDC. During the first quarter of 2017, Paragon booked a gain on the acquisition of SEDC of $4.2 million, a figure that represented the gain on bargain purchase of 100% of SEDC. In the third quarter, a year to date equity true up of $811,662 was made along with a year to date compensation expense true up of $85,601. On a pro forma basis for the three months ended September 30, 2017, the net income attributable to non- controlling interest would have been $22,000, versus the reported amount of $834,000 and the net loss attributable to Paragon Technologies, Inc. and Subsidiaries would have been $(39,000), versus the reported amount of $(851,000).

Paragon's investment gains or losses reflect realized gains or losses in the company's investment portfolio.

Paragon utilizes pre-tax operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure, in its analysis of financial results. Paragon Technologies defines pre-tax operating earnings outside of the investment gains/losses of the Company.
