Vislink Technologies Reports Q2 2019 Financial Results

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vislink Technologies, Inc. (“Vislink” or the “Company”) (VISL), whose brands are recognized as the global leaders in live video communications, announced its results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019. As previously announced, and in lieu of holding a conference call, the Company has issued a Corporate Update that includes a review of the financial results and an update on corporate developments (more information below).

Recent Highlights:

  • Introduced the INCAM-HS, an integrated 4K UHD wireless camera transmitter unit designed for SONY’s HDC-5500 multi-format live camera system.
  • Partnered with Grass Valley on an all-in-one broadcast solution that includes the Vislink INCAM-HG 4K UHD transmitter and Grass Valley’s LDX 86N Series camera.
  • Introduced the HCAM+ULRX wireless camera solution, which provides end-to-end, ultra-low latency when working with 4K content for broadcast sports and major entertainment event coverage applications.
  • Received $650,000 in airborne video downlink orders from California and Minnesota law enforcement agencies.
  • Deployed its wireless camera equipment to cover events at the OGN Super Arena, the largest esports studio arena on the U.S. West Coast, and the first esports venue in North America designed specifically for popular “battle royale” esports games.
  • Was awarded a $2.8 million U.S. Army contract for handheld intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) receiver devices.
  • Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, the Company also closed on a $12 million public offering that allowed it to pay off convertible debt incurred during 2018 in full and ahead of schedule.

“We successfully completed a company-wide restructuring over the last year and expected to have a revised capital structure in place in early 2019,” said Roger Branton, CEO of Vislink Technologies. The delay in finalizing that impacted our Q2 results and was reflected in the revenue and profit figures we announced. The Company succeeded in finalizing a new capital arrangement in July 2019 which allowed us to strengthen our balance sheet and become debt-free. We are optimistic that the difficult steps taken over the last year are behind us and we are in a much better position to reach our objective of sustainable and profitable growth.”

Vislink Technologies has issued a Corporate Update for its shareholders and other stakeholders that includes a review of the second quarter 2019 financial results and an update on corporate developments.

¹NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We disclose non-GAAP financial measures as we believe they provide useful information on actual operating
performance. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) consists of net income (loss) excluding (i) share-based compensation and (ii) one-time expenses including severance and restructuring charges and discontinued operations.

Non-GAAP EBITDA income (loss) consists of net income (loss) excluding (i) share-based compensation, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) interest expense and (iv) one-time expenses including severance and restructuring charges and discontinued operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by investors and analysts for valuation purposes and we believe that it is an important indicator of our operating performance.

We use the above-noted non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes and to allow us to assess the performance of our business before including the impacts of the items noted above as they affect the comparability of our financial results. These non-GAAP measures are reviewed regularly by management and the Board of Directors as part of the ongoing internal assessment of our operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus purchase price amortization, acquisition-related expense, restructuring expense, depreciation and amortization, foreign exchange gains or losses and interest expense.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with US GAAP on a basis consistent for all periods presented. In addition to results reported in accordance with US GAAP, we use non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental indicators of our operating performance. We disclose non-GAAP measures as we believe that these measures provide better information on actual operating results.

Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by US GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
