On Track Innovations Ltd. Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

YOKNEAM, Israel, Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTCQX: OTIVF) (the "Company" or "OTI"), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, today provided a business update and announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Management Comments

Mr. Amir Eilam, OTI's new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), commented, "We are pleased with our results – particularly the revenue growth, which has shown solid recovery and is up 69% year-over-year and up 77% sequentially . We see strong traction in our target regions, particularly in the United States, bringing a number of new customers in the quarter, all with potential for long-term recurring revenue growth."

Mr. Holtzman, OTI's CEO until November 3rd, commented,  "I was brought to OTI two years ago to bring about a turnaround in the business. With our shift towards a recurring, software-as-a-service, revenue model, I believe I leave OTI well positioned. I welcome Amir Eilam as the new CEO, a long-time OTI employee. I believe he will be a strong CEO and bring OTI to the next level."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results Summary[1]

  • Revenue in the quarter was $5.0 million, compared to $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 69%. These amounts include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) revenues, which are recurring by nature, and amounted to $407 thousand in the quarter of 2021, compared to $362 thousand in the third quarter of last year, an increase of 12%.
  • Gross profit in the quarter was $1.3 million, or 26% of revenues, compared to $1.2 million, or 39% of revenues, in the third quarter of last year.
  • Operating expenses totaled $2.4 million in the quarter, compared to operating expenses of $2.4 million in the third quarter of last year.
  • Operating loss from continuing operations was $1.1 million, compared to an operating loss from continuing operations of $1.3 million in the third quarter of last year.
  • Net loss was $1.5 million, or loss of $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or loss of $0.03 per share, in the third quarter of last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations was $1.0 million in the quarter, compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.1 million in the third quarter of last year.
  • As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1.3 million.

As a result of the uncertainty regarding the likelihood that the Company will be required to repay its loan agreement on the extended maturity date, OTI management has added a going concern note in the third quarter of 2021 financial results. The Company is negotiating the terms of a loan agreement with its controlling shareholder that would address its cash needs.

Safe Harbor / Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains express or implied forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other Federal securities laws. Whenever we use words such as "will," "look forward," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate," "believe," "should," "can" or similar expressions, we are making forward-looking statements. For example, we are using forward-looking statements when we discuss, among others: the Company's strategy, potential of new customers, growing business with existing customers and the potential for long-term recurring revenues, the Company's expected growth,scarcity of electronic parts and extended delivery dates, the Company's cash needs and the potential to secure additional funding resources, whether in the form of a loan or otherwise and the success of OTI's new CEO. Because such statements deal with future events and are based on OTI's current expectations, they are subject to various risks and uncertainties and actual results, including those as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Performance or achievements of OTI could differ materially from those described in or implied by the statements in this press release. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by our forward-looking statements are stated under the captions "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report (Form 10-K) and other known and unknown uncertainties and risk factors including those detailed from time to time in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this release, and we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update forward-looking statements. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain non-GAAP measures, namely, adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations, or adjusted earnings from continuing operations before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations represents earnings before interest or financing expenses, income tax, depreciation and amortization, and further eliminates the effect of stock-based compensation expense. OTI believes that adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations should be considered in evaluating the Company's operations since it provides a clear indication of the Company's operating results. This measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for the U.S. GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the U.S. GAAP results in the table below.

[1] Following OTI's sale of its Polish subsidiary, ASEC, in Poland, the financial results of ASEC were included as discontinued operations and all the prior periods' information has been reclassified to conform with the current period's presentation.
