Bsquare Third Quarter 2020 Results Show Improving Financial Performance

SEATTLE, Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bsquare Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2020. Revenue was $10.4 million up 17% over Q2 2020, net loss was $0.1 million, adjusted EBITDAS was $0.3 million, and cash was breakeven for the quarter.

"We had a good quarter especially given the challenges we experienced in Q2.  Revenue and margins were up sequentially, EBITDAS results improved, and cash utilization was minimal, all suggesting that COVID-19 did not derail us.' said Ralph C, Derrickson, CEO and President of Bsquare.

Added Derrickson:  "The investments we made in our large Edge-to-Cloud customer relationships are bearing fruit and suggest that at the intersection of our two business segments, there lies the potential to accelerate our emergence from the period of business rebuilding that has dominated our management attention for the last five quarters."

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments totaled $12.6 million on September 30, 2020, unchanged from June 30, 2020. 
  • Revenue for Q3 2020 was $10.4 million, up $1.5 million from Q2 2020.  Revenue increases were driven by higher sales in the Partner Solutions segment and increased service revenue in the Edge-to-Cloud segment. 
  • Partner Solutions gross margins were 19%, up from Q2 2020. Edge-to-cloud margins also improved sequentially as investments in our large customers began to wind down.
  • Net loss for the current quarter was $0.1 million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or $(0.08) per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDAS was approximately $0.3 million, a $1.1 million improvement over the negative $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

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

  • Partner Solutions revenue increased for the comparative period, driven by higher sales of Microsoft operating systems and other embedded software.
  • Edge to Cloud revenue decreased when compared to the prior year third 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 third quarter of 2019 due to announced spending reduction initiatives that reduced salary, benefit, and marketing costs.
  • Net loss for Q3 2020 was $0.1 million or $(0.01) per diluted share compared to a loss of $1.1 million or $(0.09) per diluted share in Q3 2019, an improvement of $1.0 million or $0.08 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.
