HASCO Medical Reports Record First Quarter 2014 Results

Q1 2014 Total Net Revenues up 38% to Record $20.7 Million, Driving Net Income of $194,000

ADDISON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: HASC), a leading provider of handicap-accessible vans, parts and service, reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Q1 2014 Financial and Operational Highlights

  • Revenues up 38% to a record $20.7 million, marking five consecutive quarters of record revenue

  • Gross margin up 176 basis points to 25.4%

  • Net income of $194,000 vs. a net loss of $199,000 in same year-ago quarter

  • Delivered a record number of taxi orders totaling more than 100, which were sold primarily through the company's Ride-Away® Commercial Taxi location in NYC

Q1 2014 Financial Summary
Net revenues for the first quarter of 2014 totaled a record $20.7 million, up 38% from $15.0 million in the same year-ago quarter. The improvement was primarily due to the increase in private-pay business for van sales, as well as the contribution of Auto Mobility Sales that the company acquired last September. Service and other revenue totaled $3.9 million, up 36% from the same year-ago quarter.

Gross profit was a record $5.3 million or 25.4% of total net revenues, compared to $3.5 million or 23.7% of total net revenues in the same year-ago quarter. The increase is primarily due to the greater buying power and better utilization of capacity in service.

Net income totaled $194,000, as compared to net loss of $199,000 in the same year-ago quarter.

Management Commentary
"Our record first quarter results reflects strong sales of handicap accessible vehicles across all our East Coast dealerships," said Hal Compton, CEO of HASCO Medical. "We expect this sales momentum to be maintained with the help of two new dealerships we're planning to open in the Fall with the support of major brands like BraunAbility and VMI. As we look to the remainder of 2014, we expect our excellent customer service, high-quality products and custom solutions, and the strong tailwinds of a growing market to drive another record year."

2014 Outlook
HASCO Medical expects 2014 total net revenues to range between $75 million and $85 million, which represents an increase of 3% to 17%. The company also expects gross margin to range between 21% to 23%. The company also expects positive net income in 2014.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
