Management Commentary

“This quarter exceeded our expectations, with record revenue for a third quarter at $16.0 million, up 23% over the same year-ago quarter and up 7% sequentially,” commented OSS president and CEO, David Raun.

“These strong results reflect exceptional performance by our European-based Bressner business, as well as strengthening revenue from our large media and entertainment customer as their new virtual products continue to gain traction.

“Like most companies, we have been facing supply challenges, but we have been able to manage the impact during this unusual period by working closely with our customers and suppliers and carefully making strategic purchases. Given the positive progress on our balance sheet and overall financial performance, we remain undaunted in the pursuit of our AI Transportable vision.

“During the quarter, we had two new major program wins: an AI transportable data acquisition system and a Gen 4 PCI Express expansion interconnect for high-performance 3D printing. Together, they brought our total major wins to eight so far this year.

“Now with the return to live, in-person trade shows, plus our focus on AI Transportables and the additional key investments in sales personnel and channels, we are seeing increased activity across our opportunity pipeline. The pipeline has expanded to 22 major pending opportunities, half of which are in the AI Transportable space. AI Transportable wins represent higher margins given our expertise in the space.

“We are planning the launch of an exciting new platform next week at the SC21 conference, which we anticipate will represent another major step in the continued evolution of OSS. Based on initial customer feedback, we expect this leading-edge AI Transportable solution to drive additional customer engagement, contract wins, and accelerated growth.

“Looking ahead, we are providing revenue guidance of $17.1 million for the fourth quarter. This would represent 23% growth over Q4 of last year, 7% growth over Q3, and record annual revenue of approximately $61.3 million.”

Q3 2021 Financial Summary
Revenue in the third quarter of 2021 increased 23% to $16.0 million, compared to $13.0 million in the same year-ago quarter. Growth was primarily driven by exceptional performance from OSS’ European subsidiary, Bressner, and strengthening revenue from the company’s large media and entertainment customer.  

Revenue from OSS’ largest customer grew to $3.2 million, quadrupling from a low of $800,000 in the year ago quarter. Most of the growth was from sales of the customer’s new innovative virtual products.

Bressner revenue increased 68%, contributing a record $6.7 million in the third quarter. Growth for Bressner is traceable to maturing leadership, the implementation of pre-planned inventory strategies, and aggressive sales efforts resulting in expansion of the European customer base.

The media and entertainment business and the Bressner subsidiary revenue tends to be lower margin, having the effect of decreasing margins 3.3 percentage points as compared to the year-ago quarter. Overall margins were up over the previous quarter by 3.3 percentage point.

Gross profit was $5.5 million or 34.5% of revenue in the third quarter of 2021, up from $4.9 million or 37.8% of revenue in the third quarter of 2020.

Operating expenses increased 14% to $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $3.9 million in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased to 28.1% in the third quarter of 2021 versus 30.2% in the year-ago quarter.

Net income on a GAAP basis totaled $981,000 in the third quarter of 2021 or $0.05 per basic and diluted share compared to $858,000 or $0.05 per basic and diluted share in the year-ago period.

Non-GAAP net income totaled $1.5 million or $0.08 per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of 2021, as compared to a non-GAAP net income of $1.2 million or $0.07 per basic and diluted share in the same year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, totaled $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to $1.6 million in the same year-ago period.  

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $18.5 million as of September 30, 2021, as compared to $18.5 million on June 30, 2021. The company believes its cash position and other available funds provide sufficient liquidity to meet its cash requirements for working capital and paying down debt, while supporting its strategic growth initiatives.

First Nine Months 2021 Financial Summary

Total revenues increased 16% to a record $44.2 million compared to $38.0 million in the prior year.

Gross profit for the first nine months of 2021 was $14.6 million or 33.0% of revenue, up 2.4 percentage points, compared to $11.6 million or 30.6% of revenue in the same year-ago period. This was due to growth in the high-margin military business, a fundamental corporate focus which is gaining strength. OSS business contributed an additional 2.9 percentage points, and the Bressner subsidiary was up by 3.3 percentage points.

Total operating expenses increased 2% to $12.8 million versus $12.6 million in the first nine months of 2020. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue improved to 28.9% during the first nine months of 2021 versus 33.1% in the same year-ago period.

Net income on a GAAP basis improved by $3.0 million to $2.7 million or $0.14 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $250,000 or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share in the first nine months of 2020. This includes $1.5 million in PPP loan and interest forgiveness.

Non-GAAP net income totaled $3.0 million or $0.15 per diluted share, as compared to $773,000 or $0.05 per basic and diluted share in the first nine months of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, was 9.6% of revenue or $4.3 million, as compared to $682,000 in the first nine months of 2020.  

Outlook
For the fourth quarter of 2021, OSS expects revenue of approximately $17.1 million, which would represent an increase of 23% versus the same year-ago quarter, 7% sequentially, and record annual revenue of approximately $61.3 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management believes that the use of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or adjusted EBITDA, is helpful for an investor to assess the performance of the company. The company defines adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition expenses, impairment of long-lived assets, financing costs, fair value adjustments from purchase accounting, stock-based compensation expense and expenses related to discontinued operations. For this reporting period, it excludes PPP loan forgiveness, which the company does not anticipate will reoccur in the foreseeable future.
           
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash operating expenses, management believes that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash and non-recurring expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between the company’s core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing management with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating the company’s own core business operating results over different periods of time.
  
The company’s adjusted EBITDA measure may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in its industry, as other companies in the company’s industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. The company’s adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. Management does not consider adjusted EBITDA to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA   $ 1,811,899     $ 1,566,649     $ 4,262,897     $ 682,147  

Adjusted EPS excludes the impact of certain items and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that exclusion of certain selected items assists in providing a more complete understanding of the company’s underlying results and trends and allows for comparability with its peer company index and industry. Management uses this measure along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures to manage the company’s business and to evaluate its performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace. The company defines Non-GAAP (loss) income as (loss) or income before amortization, stock-based compensation, expenses related to discontinued operations, impairment of long-lived assets and non-recurring acquisition costs. For this reporting period, it excludes PPP loan forgiveness, which the company does not anticipate will reoccur in the foreseeable future. Adjusted EPS expresses adjusted (loss) income on a per share basis using weighted average diluted shares outstanding.
  
Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. Management expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted EPS financial adjustments described above, and investors should not infer from the company’s presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
