EBITDA margin is EBITDA divided by net revenue.

 

  • Revenue in the second quarter of 2020 decreased approximately 15% to $1,702 from $2,006 in the same year-ago period, primarily due to market challenges existing in many of the industries we serve. 
  • Gross margin increased to 58.6% from 52.5% due to revenue mix and efficiencies derived from relocation of our medical manufacturing to China from the United States.
  • Income from Operations was $41 for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $371 in the same period in 2019. The second quarter of 2019 included receipt of a milestone R&D incentive payment of $179 from the Singapore government. G&A expenses increased by costs associated with our submission of a Form 10 registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, partially offset by a COVID-19 related stimulus grant we received from the Singapore government.  Sales and marketing costs increased as a result of the Company building out its sales and marketing team.
  • In the second quarter of 2020, after-tax net income was $13 or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, compared to after-tax net income of $109 or $0.02 per basic and diluted share in the same year-ago period. 
  • EBITDA was $95 for the quarter, compared to $464 in the same period in 2019.  On a trailing-twelve basis, EBITDA was loss of $27
  • The company ended the period with $6,097 in cash and cash equivalents.  Coupled with no debt, its balance sheet remains robust.

"We are pleased with our results in light of the challenging environment created by COVID-19," stated Mr. Bronson, CEO of Interlink. "We are continuing to make investments in our business supported by a new HQ in Irvine and a pending investment and expansion of our Camarillo, California location to include a world-class R&D and materials science lab.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures. Other companies may use different non-GAAP measures and presentation of results.

In addition to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release presents EBITDA and EBITDA margin, each of which is a non-GAAP measure. EBITDA is determined by taking net income and adding interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and EBITDA margin is determined by dividing EBITDA by net revenue.  Interlink believes that these non-GAAP measure, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of net income and gross margin, provide useful information to investors by providing more focused measures of operating results. These metrics are an integral part of Interlink's internal reporting to evaluate its operations and the performance of senior management. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP measure, is available in the accompanying financial tables below. The non-GAAP measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
