Bsquare Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

11/10/16 at 4:11 pm EST
Q3 Revenue $22.5 million; Q3 EPS $(0.01); Cash balance up by $4.4 million; DataV operational in customer environment.

BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bsquare Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR) today announced financial results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016.

 

Jerry Chase, Bsquare President and CEO, commented, "During the third quarter we continued to make strong progress executing on our business transition, the result of which we believe will be an increasing percentage of our revenue generated by DataV, our own high-margin software offering. Toward that end, DataV is now operational within our launch customer, a global Fortune 500 industrial transportation company. As a result of that early success, and consistent with guidance provided in our last earnings call, cash balances were up significantly during the third quarter as we collected cash in line with contract milestones. We will recognize revenue over the contract period."

Chase continued, "After the close of the third quarter, we secured additional DataV contract wins, providing further momentum for this important product. We are encouraged by our sales pipeline and will continue to invest accordingly."

As noted in our second quarter release, we initiated a restructuring plan in July reducing the size of our engineering services organization. We expect this plan will result in approximately $2.6 million in annualized cost savings. These actions and the resulting severance and restructuring costs negatively impacted our Q3 results, and they were mostly completed during the third quarter of 2016. We incurred pre-tax restructuring charges of approximately $800,000 in the third quarter of 2016 with another $200,000 expected to be incurred in the current quarter.

Q3 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $22.5 million, a 1% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2016 and a 15% decrease from the third quarter of 2015.
  • Net loss was $(0.1) million, or $(0.01) per share, compared to net loss of $(0.2) million, or $(0.02) per share, in the second quarter of 2016 and net income of $1.2 million, or $0.10 per share, in the year-ago quarter. Quarterly results were negatively impacted by the $800,000 restructuring charge within our engineering services group.
  • Adjusted EBITDAS* was $4,000, a decrease of $278,000 from the second quarter of 2016 and a decrease of $2.0 million from the third quarter of 2015.
  • Cash and investments at September 30, 2016 totaled $31.6 million, an increase of $4.4 million from June 30, 2016.

*Adjusted EBITDAS = Operating income (loss) before depreciation, amortization and stock compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDAS is a non-GAAP measurement (reconciliation provided after financial statement tables).

Additional DataV Metrics

  • 2016 DataV GAAP revenue recognized through September 30, 2016 was $0.3 million, with 2016 DataV bookings of $4.3 million (which is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as new agreements signed with customers) and cash receipts from DataV contracts of $2.3 million.
  • DataV backlog was $4.0 million at September 30, 2016 (which is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as total DataV bookings less DataV revenue recognized to date).
  • Total GAAP deferred revenue on our consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2016 was $3.2 million. This balance included DataV deferred revenue of $2.8 million, with $0.8 million classified as current and $2.0 million classified as long-term. The GAAP deferred revenue balances relating to our DataV sales do not represent the total contract value of our DataV agreements. DataV unbilled deferred revenue (which is a non-GAAP measure) was an additional $1.2 million at September 30, 2016, and represents future contract billings that have not been invoiced, and, accordingly, are not recorded in deferred revenue.

Bookings, backlog and unbilled deferred revenue are non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures have been included because management believes they provide meaningful information related to our new DataV product sales, since revenue will often be recognized in periods later than those in which orders have been received or cash has been collected.

Financial Commentary on Third Quarter 2016 Results (Compared to Second Quarter 2016)

  • Revenue from third-party software was $18.2 million, a decrease of 1% from $18.3 million in the second quarter of 2016, due primarily to lower sales of Microsoft software as a result of timing of customer purchases.
  • Engineering services revenue decreased $0.8 million, or 19%, to $3.3 million, while engineering services margin decreased by 23 percentage points to -8%. The margin decrease resulted from a combination of lower revenue and utilization rates resulting from the completion of several large projects and the recognition of approximately $0.8 million in restructuring costs.
  • The increase in cash and investments of $4.4 million during the third quarter of 2016 was primarily due to payments received from our first DataV sale, positive working capital changes and proceeds from the exercise of stock options. Days sales outstanding (DSO) increased to 80 days at September 30, 2016, from 78 days at June 30, 2016, 70 days at December 31, 2015 and 54 days at September 30, 2015. The DSO increase is a result of extended payment terms granted to a Fortune 100 customer.

First Nine Months 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $70.6 million, a 13% decrease compared to $81.6 million for the year-ago period, due primarily to decreases in third-party software sales, engineering services revenue and proprietary software sales.
  • Net income was $0.2 million, or $0.02 per share, a $4.7 million decrease compared to net income of $5.0 million, or $0.40 per share, in the first nine months of 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDAS was $1.5 million, a decrease of $5.1 million compared to $6.6 million in the year-ago period.

Financial Commentary on First Nine Months 2016 Results (Compared to First Nine Months 2015)

  • Revenue from third-party software was $56.5 million, a 12% decrease from $63.9 million recorded in the prior year period due to a $1.6 million decrease in sales of Windows Embedded operating systems and a $4.8 million decrease in sales of Windows Mobile operating systems.
  • Third-party gross profit was $8.9 million, a $0.7 million or 7% decrease from $9.6 million in the prior year period. The decrease was volume driven.
  • Engineering services gross profit was $1.6 million, a $2.0 million decrease from the prior year period, due to the decrease in revenue, lower utilization rates driven by the completion of a number of North American projects and recognition of approximately $0.8 million in restructuring costs in the third quarter of 2016.
  • Proprietary software gross profit was $1.4 million, a decrease of $1.0 million from $2.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease was due to sales of our legacy software in the first nine months of 2015 that exceeded the historical trend combined with a relatively fixed cost of sales.
  • Operating expenses totaled $11.7 million, an increase of $1.3 million from $10.4 million in the prior year period. This increase was due to higher R&D and marketing spending on our new DataV software product line.

Q4 2016 Outlook

Management currently has the following expectations for Q4 2016:

  • DataV:
    • We anticipate additional DataV bookings, including an order for $4.8 million that was received in November from a major industrial firm. The first year of that order is valued at $1.9 million, with an optional four-year extension valued at $2.9 million. Additionally, Bsquare will be entitled to collect monthly per-app royalties once certain volume milestones have been achieved. DataV revenue will generally be recognized over the life of the contract
    • Operating expenses will continue to reflect targeted increased investments in DataV R&D and sales and marketing in an effort to capitalize on a growing customer pipeline.
  • Total revenue will be in the range of $21 to $24 million.
  • Gross margin percentage for engineering services will continue to be lower than we have historically achieved as a result of our business transition to DataV.
  • Q4 GAAP net loss with implementation of our restructuring plan, including approximately $200,000 in estimated severance charges.

Additionally, management expects that its commitment to significant investments in DataV may result in net losses in upcoming quarters as Bsquare transitions to DataV. However, we expect that these investments will be funded by cash flow and investments on hand.

Adjusted EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flow 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 GAAP. Adjusted EBITDAS is defined as operating income (loss) before depreciation expense on fixed assets and amortization expense (including impairment) on intangible assets, and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDAS should not be construed as a substitute for net income (loss) or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities (all as determined in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position and cash flows, as Adjusted EBITDAS is not defined by GAAP. However, BSQUARE regards Adjusted EBITDAS as a complement to net income and other GAAP financial performance measures, including an indirect measure of operating cash flow.
