("ISS," the "Company," "us," "we," or "our") in 2020 was $3.4 million compared to $4.2 million in the second quarter of 2019. Revenue from royalties was consistent at $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019. Product sales decreased to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020, a 42 percent decrease from $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2019. Autoscope video product sales and royalties were $250,000 and $2.2 million, respectively, and RTMS radar product sales were $922,000 in the second quarter of 2020.Gross margin for the second quarter of 2020 was 82 percent, a 10 percentage point or 14 percent increase from a gross margin of 72 percent for the same period in 2019.

Product sales gross margin for the second quarter of 2020 was 56 percent compared to 45 percent in the prior year period. The increase in the gross margin percent was primarily the result of a larger portion of total revenue generated from royalties in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 and there was an individually significant, low margin sale into the Middle East region in the second quarter of 2019.The 2020 second quarter net income includes operating expenses of $2.4 million, a 1 percent increase from the second quarter of 2019. The increase is primarily due to the decrease in capitalized costs in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 and higher legal and outside consulting costs related to the Company's exploration of strategic alternatives announced in January 2020. During the second quarter of 2020, the Company capitalized no internal software development costs compared to $343,000 in the prior year period. The Company's net income for the second quarter was $150,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to net income of $647,000, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the prior year period.On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the amortization of intangible assets and depreciation for the applicable periods, the operating income for the second quarter of 2020 was $621,000 compared to operating income of $844,000 in the prior year period.During the second quarter of 2020, ISS received funding of $924,000 from the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) in the form of a PPP loan. ISS plans to apply for forgiveness of the loan because the proceeds were used for payroll related costs, rent, and utilities. Upon the expected forgiveness, the Company will recognize the loan as other non-operating income. Year-to-Date Results:ISS’ revenue for the first six months of 2020 was $6.5 million, a 14 percent decrease from revenue of $7.6 million in the first six months of 2019. Sales gross margin for the first six months of 2020 was 81 percent, a 7 percentage point or 10 percent increase from the prior year period. The increase in gross margin was the result of a combination of a higher percentage of revenue from royalties in the first half of 2020 and the aforementioned significant low margin sale in the Middle East in 2019. Revenue from royalties was $4.3 million in the first six months of 2020 compared to $4.0 million in the same period in 2019, a 9 percent increase.

This was especially true for our international market segments due to their early and aggressive reaction to COVID-19, resulting in lockdowns of many regions. In reaction to market uncertainty, we worked to execute a conservative operating plan that eliminated discretionary spending and deferred programmatic expense to the second half of 2020. In total, we reduced our second quarter operating expenses by approximately $350,000 year-over-year when adjusted for 2019 software capitalization. These actions, combined with the PPP loan proceeds applied to payroll, rent, and utilities allowed us to retain all of our talented employees," said Chad Stelzig, CEO for ISS.Non-GAAP Financial Measures:We provide certain non-GAAP financial information as supplemental information to financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States).
