Management Commentary

“In Q2, we achieved strong top-line growth with revenue up 28% to $14.9 million, and this helped drive first half revenue up 13% to a record $28.2 million,” commented OSS president and CEO, David Raun. “The strong top-line performance reflects our broadening customer base and new wins with major accounts.

“We also drove down our operating expenses as a percentage of revenue. Together, these results generated solid bottom-line improvements with net income in the second quarter increasing $1.7 million versus the year-ago quarter and adjusted EBITDA up by $1.3 million, reaching more than 9% of total revenue.

“During the second quarter, we won three new major opportunities that included a medical control system, an edge flash storage program, and a GPU-accelerated training and inference system with a major vehicle supplier in Germany. The vehicle supplier win expanded our footprint in the autonomous vehicle market. Altogether, these successes brought our first half of the year major wins to six. We also shipped our latest SDS rugged server which was designed into a military mobile datacenter application.

“While we expect the effects of the pandemic to continue through the rest of the year, we are seeing improving customer demand. Even our commercial aerospace customers, which were severely affected by COVID, are re-engaging with us on new programs, as well as bringing back programs previously put on hold. We have now 17 major pending opportunities in our pipeline that we are focused on closing.

“Executing on our long-term strategic vision and product road map continues to be our top priority. This plan includes strengthening our value proposition in the fast-growing, edge-computing industry with the goal of becoming the market leader in the AI Transportables space. This target market requires the highest performance computing in a challenging mobile environment, which we believe to be one of our greatest strengths.

“We continue to proactively manage the challenges imposed by the pandemic, and in doing so, our team has become adept at optimizing engineering and manufacturing processes, shipping product on time, and not only protecting but increasing margins.

“While we are experiencing increased product demand, supply chain challenges such as price increases and long lead-times continue to be significant. However, our team is managing the fluid landscape on multiple fronts by qualifying additional vendors, implementing extended purchase planning, and focusing on other strategic and tactical activities.

“We believe our execution of our strategic plan, corporate reorganization, and improved board composition has contributed to a tripling of shareholder value over the past two years. So far this year, we have made better-than-expected top- and bottom-line progress.

“Given our adjusted EBITDA at 9% of total revenue in the first half of the year, we are well on our way to achieving our objective of it being no less than 10% of revenues. For the current third quarter, we believe we are on track to generate revenue of about $15.9 million, which would represent an increase of 23% over the same year-ago quarter and would exceed all historical third quarters.”

Q2 2021 Financial Summary
Revenue in the second quarter of 2021 increased 28% to $14.9 million, compared to $11.6 million in the same year-ago quarter. This growth was primarily driven by improvements in the sale of ruggedized servers in the media and entertainment markets, differentiated military AI Transportables data processing and storage products, as well as continued expansion of the company’s customer base and new applications within key accounts.

Gross profit was $4.7 million or 31.2% of revenue in the second quarter of 2021, up from $3.3 million or 28.6% of revenue in Q2 2020. The improvement in quarterly margin was attributed to changes in product mix and type of customer.

Operating expenses increased 11% to $4.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $3.7 million in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased to 27.7% in the second quarter of 2021 versus 32.1% in the year-ago quarter.

Net income on a GAAP basis totaled $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2021 or $0.09 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $12,000 or $(0.00) per diluted share in the year-ago period. This improvement was due to more favorable gross margins as well as debt and interest forgiveness on the company’s PPP loan of approximately $1.5 million.

Non-GAAP net income totaled $812,000 or $0.04 per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2021, as compared to a non-GAAP net income of $248,000 or $0.01 per diluted share in the same year-ago period. Non-GAAP net income excludes the $1.5 million PPP loan forgiveness.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, totaled $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2021 as compared to $73,000 in the same year-ago period. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the $1.5 million PPP loan forgiveness.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $18.5 million as of June 30, 2021, as compared to $19.6 million on March 31, 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 Half 2021 Financial Summary

Total revenues increased 13% to a record $28.2 million compared to $25.0 million in the prior year. This growth was primarily driven by improvements in the sale of ruggedized servers in the media and entertainment markets, our differentiated military AI Transportables data processing and storage products, as well as continued expansion of our customer base and new applications within key accounts.

Gross profit for the first half of 2021 was $9.1 million or 32.2% of revenue, compared to $6.7 million or 26.9% of revenue in the same year-ago period. The improvements in quarterly margins were attributable to product mix, additional sales of high-value products, and increased efficiencies.

Total operating expenses decreased 4% to $8.3 million versus the first half of 2020. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue improved to 29.4% during the first half of 2021 versus 34.6% in the same year-ago period.

Net income on a GAAP basis totaled $1.7 million or $0.09 per diluted share, as compared to a loss of $1.1 million or $(0.07) per share in the first half of 2020. Net Income includes the $1.5 million PPP loan forgiveness.

Non-GAAP net income totaled $1.5 million or $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to non-GAAP net loss of $466,000 or $(0.03) per share in the first half of 2020. Non-GAAP net income excludes the $1.5 million PPP loan forgiveness.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, totaled $2.5 million as compared to negative $885,000 in the first half of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the $1.5 million PPP loan forgiveness.

Outlook
For the third quarter of 2021, OSS expects revenue of approximately $15.9 million which would be an increase of 7% sequentially and 23% versus the same year-ago quarter.

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 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.
