2021 First Quarter
On Track Innovations Ltd. Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

YOKNEAM, Israel, May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On Track Innovations Ltd. ("OTI") (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 first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Management Comments

Mr. Yehuda Holtzman, OTI's CEO, commented, "We are pleased with our results, particularly the 18% growth in our Software as a Service (SaaS) revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2020. We are happy with the increased traction we are gaining in key regions and we have added many new customers in the past few months, all of which have provided us with initial sales. A large portion of them have significant long-term growth and recurring revenue potential for OTI. Our new strategy is beginning to bear fruit and we are starting to successfully capture the new opportunities." 

Added Mr. Holtzman, "Looking ahead, I believe 2021 will be a year of continuous growth for OTI. I expect that continued revenue growth and efficient operation should allow us to reach profitability during the second half of the year."

Concluded Mr. Holtzman, "We recently launched a rights-offering for all our shareholders to strengthen our balance sheet. We wish to raise enough capital to provide us with ongoing working capital and enable us to execute on our growth strategy."

Following OTI's sale of our 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.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of ordinary shares in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.  The above-mentioned rights offering is being made solely pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-254921), including a prospectus dated April 20, 2021, each filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Before investing in the rights offering, interested parties should read in their entirety the prospectus and the other documents that the Company has filed with the SEC that are incorporated by reference in such prospectus, which provide more information about the Company and such offering.

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, increased traction and opportunities, the Company's expected growth and profitability, and the result of its rights offering. 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.
