Bsquare Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results


SEATTLE, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bsquare Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2020.  For the second quarter of 2020, revenue was $8.9 million, net loss was $1.1 million, adjusted EBITDAS was negative $0.8 million, and cash increased by $1.9 million.

"COVID-19 and seasonal ordering patterns ended our three-quarter trend of increasing revenue. Partner Solutions segment revenue, which was strong in Q1 2020, was particularly affected as customer ordering slowed and magnified the quarter over quarter decrease. The challenges of the pandemic, however, did drive a higher level of collaboration that allowed us to strengthen relationships and retain our customers. Aggressive expense and cash management for the past several quarters enabled us to bolster our cash reserves," said Ralph C, Derrickson, CEO and President of Bsquare.

Added Derrickson: "The COVID-19 pandemic is driving rapid change in every corner of life and work, creating new requirements for the systems we all rely on. As our customers are responding we are seeing evidence that there is a significant role for Bsquare's intelligent device and system services, and we remain confident that our technology will be part of the answer."

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments totaled $12.6 million on June 30, 2020, an increase of approximately $1.9 million from March 31, 2020.
  • Revenue for Q2 2020 was $8.9 million, down $7.8 million from Q1 2020. Revenue declines were driven by pandemic-related reductions in demand on top of normal seasonality in the Partner Solutions segment, while Edge-to-Cloud segment revenue remained steady.
  • Gross margin for Partner Solutions was 14%, lower than the atypical gross margin of Q1 2020 and returning to a level consistent with prior periods. Edge-to-cloud margin improved sequentially but continues to reflect the cost of addressing customer requirements for previously delivered software.
  • Operating expenses for the quarter were at their lowest level since the first?quarter of 2019 and operating expenses, excluding restructuring costs, declined for the sixth consecutive quarter.
  • Net loss for the current quarter was $1.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDAS was approximately negative $0.8 million, compared to approximately break-even results in the first quarter of 2020.

Financial Commentary on Second Quarter 2020 Results Compared to Second Quarter 2019

  • Partner Solutions revenue decreased for the comparative period, driven by lower sales of Microsoft operating systems and other embedded software.
  • Edge to Cloud revenue decreased when compared to the prior year second quarter, primarily from completion of software consulting projects during 2019 that did not recur in 2020.
  • Total operating expenses, both including and excluding restructuring costs, decreased when compared to the second quarter of 2019 due to announced spending reduction initiatives that reduced salary, benefit and marketing costs.
  • Net loss for Q2 2020 was $1.1 million or $(0.08) per diluted share compared to a loss of $3.9 million or $(0.30) per diluted share in Q2 2019, an improvement of $2.8 million or $0.22 per diluted share.

Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we make regarding our preparation for and ability to service customers during the COVID-19 pandemic and our ability to achieve our business plans, strategies and expectations. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances about future performance. Instead, they are based on current beliefs, expectations and assumptions about the future of our business and other future conditions.

Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others: our ability to execute our development initiatives and sales and marketing strategies; the extent to which we are successful in gaining new long-term customers and retaining existing ones; whether we are able to maintain our favorable relationship with Microsoft as a systems integrator and distributor; our success in leveraging strategic partnering initiatives with companies such as Microsoft, AWS and Intel; the impact of COVID-19 on our business; risks relating to our receipt of a PPP loan; and such other risk factors as discussed in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Any forward-looking statement made by us in this release is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made.

(1)

Adjusted EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure that BSQUARE defines as income (loss) from operations before depreciation expense on fixed assets and amortization expense (including impairment) on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring costs, and goodwill impairment (when applicable). Adjusted EBITDAS should not be construed as a substitute for net income (loss) or net cash provided (used) by operating activities (all as determined in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position and cash flows. Adjusted EBITDAS has limitations, including that it does not reflect our entire cost structure to operate our business (such as the cost of replacing assets being depreciated or amortized, capital expenditures, and stock-based compensation expenses which we expect to continue being meaningful, and income tax expense (benefit)) and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. However, BSQUARE regards Adjusted EBITDAS as a complement to net income and other GAAP financial performance measures. BSQUARE uses Adjusted EBITDAS to evaluate BSQUARE's financial performance and the effectiveness of its business strategies on a consistent basis across reporting periods, and BSQUARE believes the measure is often used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate comparable companies.

Total operating expenses excluding restructuring costs and goodwill impairment is a non-GAAP financial measure that BSQUARE defines as total operating expenses, plus an add-back for restructuring costs (and goodwill impairment, when applicable). This measure should not be construed as a substitute for total operating loss for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, and it has limitations, including that it does not reflect our entire cost structure to operate our business. However, BSQUARE regards this measure as a complement to GAAP operating expenses because it excludes costs that may not be indicative of operating performance. BSQUARE uses this measure to evaluate its financial performance and the effectiveness of its business strategies on a consistent basis across reporting periods, and BSQUARE believes the measure is often used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate comparable companies.
