First Half 2019 and Recent Operational Highlights by Business Segment:
"We are pleased with our second quarter 2019 results, highlighted by an improvement in our financial performance compared to the same quarter last year. We also achieved sequential quarterly improvements in profitability margins with 33% EBITDA margins and Non-GAAP gross margins of 61%, and as we continued to optimize our cost structure, operating expenses reached a low of $2.7m," said Arie Trabelsi, President and CEO of SuperCom. "We expect more cost optimizations in the following quarters brining us closer to the lean operating structure that we have not seen since 2015, before the strategic acquisitions took place. Yet today, I believe our business prospects are multiples greater, with 2 additional business segments, a major presence in developed markets, over 60% growth in our steady-state recurring revenue, and significant enhancements to our technology portfolio backed by 119 patents."
"We continue to execute on our business plan across our business segments. In the recent past we have been expanding organically into new countries and governments faster than ever, including 10 new multi-year project wins in the last 12 months alone, which are expected to generate long term recurring revenues for years to come as well as additional business from customer references."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this release of operating results also contains non-GAAP financial measures, which SuperCom believes are the principal indicators of the operating and financial performance of its business. Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provided are useful to investors' understanding and assessment of the Company's on-going core operations and prospects for the future, as the charges eliminated are not part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as a basis for strategic decisions, forecasting future results and evaluating the Company's current performance. However, such measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the schedules attached to this release.
