Vislink Technologies Reports Q3 2020 Financial Results

Vislink Technologies, Inc.
·10 min read

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ , Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vislink Technologies, Inc. (“Vislink” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: VISL) announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020. Company management will host a live webcast on Friday, November 13, 2020 at approximately 10:00 a.m. ET to review the Company’s financial and operating results and provide a general business update (see webcast details below).

Financial Highlights

  • Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $4.8 million, compared to $5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

  • EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes depreciation and amortization) was a negative $2.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to a negative $4.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

  • Ended the third quarter 2020 with $3.1 million in cash.

  • Gross margins were 31.8% of revenue in the third quarter of 2020, compared to 40.7% in the third quarter of 2019.

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $2.8 million, or $(0.17) per share in the third quarter 2020 compared to a net loss of $5 million, or $(2.41) per share in the third quarter of 2019.

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $8 million, or $(0.61) per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to a net loss of $11.7 million, or $(12.77) per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

“In the third quarter, we continued to feel the effects of a challenging macro business environment,” said Carleton Miller, CEO of Vislink Technologies. “The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic limited our growth and softened demand in our key Live Production and MilGov markets, as customers delayed deliveries for new and upgraded equipment. The pandemic also impacted our supply chain, which led to an interruption in receiving components from our suppliers. This further constricted our ability to fulfill orders in the quarter, although we do expect these interruptions to be resolved over the course of Q4.”

“In response to this, we redoubled our efforts to successfully streamline all aspects of our business. We built on the disciplined, cost-focus approach we instituted earlier this year and realized additional operational efficiencies during the quarter. We will continue this approach with additional cost reduction measures that are expected to achieve $5 million in savings. Our diligence in adhering to this next phase of our operational turnaround helped us mitigate the effects of the business downturn, conserve cash and stabilize our finances. These actions have put us in a better position to pursue and capture growth opportunities as they arise for the remainder of 2020 and into next year.”

Mr. Miller continued, “During the third quarter, we experienced positive results from our product-focused innovation. We were pleased to introduce two significant product lines: the DVE/IRD satcom encoder/decoder, and the IP Link 3.0 digital microwave system. These will be followed by the introduction of the new Quantum Receiver in the first half of 2021. While the cancelling and scaling back of major live sporting and entertainment events has pushed back infrastructure investments over the past two quarters, we are slowly witnessing such events coming back on line. This will allow us to again leverage our experience in covering events like the Olympic Games, World Cup and other tier-one competitions that we traditionally participate in. Because of this, we remain cautiously optimistic for a return to normalcy in the industries we serve.”

Financial Results Webcast Details

On Friday, November 13, 2020, Vislink’s CEO, Carleton Miller, and CFO, Michael Bond, will host a webcast at approximately 10:00 a.m. ET to review the Company’s financial and operating results and provide a general business update. This webcast will be live at https://services.choruscall.com/links/visl201113.html. Investors will be able to submit questions during the webcast.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure: EBITDA

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), we are presenting EBITDA in this earning release and the related earning conference call. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. We define EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization expense and interest income/expense. We have presented EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance, to establish budgets and to develop operational goals for managing our business. In particular, we believe that excluding the impact of these expenses in calculating EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance.
