SEATTLE, Aug. 12, 2021

SEATTLE, Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Bsquare Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2021. Revenue was $10.7 million, an increase of 7.0% compared to the first quarter of 2021. Loss from operations was $1.3 million compared to an operating loss of $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2021. Cash decreased $1.1 million from March 31, 2021. EBITDAS, a non-GAAP measure, decreased $0.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2021. 

"The increase in revenue quarter-over-quarter came as COVID-19 related supply chain issues eased for some of our large customers.  The combination of increased revenue, continued expense management and forgiveness of our PPP loan, drove the improvement in our bottom line," said Ralph C. Derrickson, CEO and President of Bsquare.  

During the second quarter, the Company raised $0.3 million in cash through the sale of its common stock. In July, the Company raised an additional $31.8 million. To date, the Company has sold a total of 6.9 million shares of its common stock for net cash proceeds of $32.1 million. As described in previous SEC filings, the Company intends to use the proceeds to fund operations and strategic growth opportunities.      

Second Quarter 2021 Results Compared to First Quarter 2021

Revenue for Q2 2021 was $10.7 million, an increase of $0.7 million, or 7.0%, from Q1 2021. Partner Solutions drove the improvement with a revenue increase of $1.2 million or 13%. This was partially offset by a revenue decrease of $0.5 million or 40% in the Edge to Cloud segment. 



Partner Solutions gross margin rate was 13.9%, a decrease from Q1 2021 due to minor fluctuations in product mix. Edge to Cloud gross margin rate decreased from Q1 2021 which had benefited from one-time revenue with relatively high margins.



Net income for the current quarter was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in Q1 2021.



Second quarter net income includes a non-operating gain of $1.6 million related to the forgiveness of the Company's Paycheck Protection Program loan.



EBITDAS was a loss of approximately $1.0 million, a $0.4 million decline compared to EBITDAS of $0.6 million in Q1 2021



Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $9.2 million on June 30, 2021. The use of cash during the quarter was driven primarily by investment in R&D, operations and variation in working capital.

Second Quarter 2021 Results Compared to Second Quarter 2020


Partner Solutions revenue increased for the comparative period. The second quarter of 2020 was negatively impacted by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic while the second quarter of 2021 saw improvement in ordering by some of our larger customers.





Edge to Cloud revenue decreased compared to the second quarter of 2020, driven by lower professional services revenue from certain of the company's smaller customers.





Total operating expenses increased compared to the second quarter of 2020, due to one-time professional fees and a quarter-over-quarter decrease in vendor rebates.





Net income for Q2 2021 was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or $(0.08) per diluted share, in Q2 2020.  Second quarter 2021 net income includes a non-operating gain of $1.6 million related to the forgiveness of the Company's Paycheck Protection Program loan.

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.

In connection with the preparation of our financial statements, we identified an immaterial error related to the recognition of $77,000 in revenues in our Edge to Cloud segment in the third quarter of 2019 that had a rollforward effect on consolidated equity and deferred revenue in all quarterly and annual periods through the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. Reported amounts revise Edge to Cloud revenue, deferred revenue and accumulated deficit (and line items including such amounts) in prior period financial statements to correct this error.

(1)

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 and stock-based compensation expense. Through 2020, Bsquare also excluded restructuring costs applicable to 2019, which are no longer applicable in 2021. 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. 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 EBITDAS as a complement to net income and other GAAP financial performance measures. Bsquare uses 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.
