CEO Commentary

Jerry Chase, President and CEO of Bsquare, commented, "The second quarter represented significant operational improvement for Bsquare. Financially, we reported sequential and year-over year revenue growth and we achieved GAAP profitability. As we have previously stated, 2014 is a building year for our DataV Internet of Things initiative with initial revenue not expected until 2015. We currently expect that our third quarter will also be GAAP profitable."

Financial Commentary on Second Quarter Results (Comparison to First Quarter Results)

  • The increase in engineering services revenue, up $1.4 million or 32%, was driven by strength in all regions. Japan contributed $533,000 of the increase which was primarily driven by the recognition of $478,000 in revenue and gross profit resulting from the completion of a large hand-held terminal project;

  • The increase in engineering services margin, up 107% or 16 percentage points, was driven by the aforementioned Japan revenue recognition impact, without which service margin would have been 24% in the quarter, and by improvements in both utilization and realized rate per hour; and

  • The increase in cash and investments from March 31, 2014 of $1.2 million, was driven by a decline in DSOs from 52 in Q1 of 2014 to 44 in Q2 of 2014 coupled with EBITDAS contribution.

Outlook

The Company currently has the following expectations for Q3 2014:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $23 million to $25 million; and

  • Cash and investments are projected to decline approximately $1.4 million from June 30, 2014.

(1) 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, the
Company regards Adjusted EBITDAS as a complement to net income and other
GAAP financial performance measures, including an indirect measure of
operating cash flow.
