OMNIQ Corp. Announces Second Quarter Financial Results 2020

  • Achieved over $26M revenue for first six months of 2020 despite conditions resulting from COVID-19.
  • Large Food Industry Orders received in late June have already been delivered in 3rd quarter.
  • Launched advanced AI-based solutions including the patented automatic High Occupancy Vehicles Violation Detection System.
  • Breakthrough AI-based Public Safety projects in Schools and Universities.

SALT LAKE CITYAug. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OMNIQ Corp. (OTCQB: OMQS) (“OMNIQ” or “the Company”), a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based solutions, today announced its second-quarter financial results for the three and six-month period ended June 30, 2020.

Shai Lustgarten, CEO, commented “We’re living through an unprecedented time, and we are encouraged by our success in achieving sales of over $26M for the six months ended June 30, 2020, which implies over $52M on an annualized basis. While we’ve seen growing interest in our AI technology, some key projects that required hands on and face-to-face meetings have been delayed to Q3 due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. We are confident that soon we will be able to announce some significant victories mainly in critical Homeland Security lifesaving projects. We believe that we have established ourselves for future success by building a strong sales team combined with a sophisticated R&D team that provide us with world class innovative machine-vision based solutions like the Seetire™ for the multibillion Tire industry and the patented solution to detect HOV violations and enable better traffic flow. We expect to be able to share some commercial news on these innovative solutions in 2021. We see our ability to provide efficient and cost-saving solutions to enhance supply chain and public safety operations as a significant competitive advantage, especially as companies and municipalities focus more intently on “touchless” technology.  We remain focused on strengthening our capabilities and expanding the reach of our solutions as we move through 2020.”

Despite the challenging worldwide economic environment throughout and subsequent to the second quarter of 2020, OMNIQ recorded several major achievements:

  • Received a $4.0 million order from a leading healthcare company for mobile data collection devices and advanced services
  • Received purchase orders in June with a total value of approximately $5.5 million from one of the largest U.S. supermarket chains
  • Awarded a key project by the City of San Mateo, California to provide an innovative cloud-based Smart City parking and traffic control solution
  • Selected to deploy its Quest Shield™ campus safety solution at the Talmudical Academy of Baltimore in Maryland
  • Received an order for a new PERCSTM cloud-based permitting, citation, access control and parking collection system from the University of Kansas Medical Center
  • Received a follow-on order to upgrade the access control and parking system at La Sierra University in Riverside, California

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results
OMNIQ reported revenue of $12.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $14.1 million in the comparable 2019 period. Sequentially, revenue decreased 8% as compared to first quarter 2020 revenue of $13.8 million.  The revenue decrease was primarily related to the COVID-19 effect on sales of our AI-based solutions during the quarter and strong fulfillment and deliveries by the Company’s subsidiary omniQ Image Processing in second quarter 2019.  The change in the product mix sold in second quarter 2020 resulted in a gross margin that was lower than first quarter 2020.  Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020 were $3.9 million as compared to $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2019.  The increase in operating expenses was largely related to increases in general and administrative expenses and non-cash stock-based compensation, partially offset by lower professional fees.  Net loss for the quarter was $2.0 million, or a loss of $0.49 per basic share, compared to a loss of $530 thousand, or a loss of $0.14 per basic share, for the second quarter of last year.  The increase in net loss is mainly attributable to lower sales and corresponding margin during the quarter, compared with the same period in 2019, as well as the increase in operating expenses.  EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) for the second quarter of 2020 was a loss of $1.0 million, as compared to EBITDA of $478 thousand in the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was a loss of $551 thousand compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $451 thousand in second quarter 2019.

First Six Months 2020 Financial Results
OMNIQ reported revenues of $26.5 million for the first six months of 2020, a decrease of 19% compared to the first six months of 2019. The revenue decrease was primarily related to the COVID-19 effect on sales of our AI-based solutions during the period and strong fulfillment and deliveries by the Company’s subsidiary omniQ Image Processing during the first six months of 2019. Gross margin percentage for the first six months of 2020 decreased to 21% compared to 25% in the same prior year period. Total operating expenses for the first half of 2020 were $9.0 million compared to $8.3 million in the first half of 2019. The increase in operating expense was largely related to an increase in non-cash stock-based compensation granted to professional service providers as well as increased general and administrative expenses. Net loss for the first six months of 2020 was $4.9 million, or a loss of $1.21 per basic share, compared to a loss of $1.2 million, or a loss of $0.33 per basic share, for the first six months of 2019. EBITDA in the first half of 2020 was a loss of $2.6 million, as compared to EBITDA of $1.1 million in the first half of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2020 was a loss of $1.4 million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1.6 million in the first half of 2019.
