RISHON LEZION, Israel, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. ("BOS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:BOSC), a leading Israeli integrator of RFID and Mobile solutions and a global provider of Supply Chain solutions to enterprises, today reported its financial results for the fiscal 2018 second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.

BOS reported revenues of $7.6 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018, a 12% increase as compared to $6.7 million in the comparable quarter in 2017.  Net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $192,000, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, as compared to net income of $166,000, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) was $317,000 for the second quarter of 2018, as compared to $311,000 for the second quarter of 2017 (See Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA in the supplemental table included at the end of this release).

BOS reported revenues of $15.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, a 15% increase as compared to $13.8 million in the comparable 2017 period. Net income for the six month period was $397,000, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, as compared to net income of $313,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.  The Company reported EBITDA of $682,000 for the first six months of 2018, as compared to $626,000 for the first six months of 2017.

Shareholders' equity increased to $10.9 million ($3.07 per share) as of June 30, 2018 from $10.2 million ($3.04 per share) in December 31, 2017. The increase was primarily related to the growth in net income for the first half of 2018, as well as to $400,000 of equity raised in April of 2018. The proceeds raised were mainly used to finance the Company's new logistic center that was launched during the second quarter of 2018. 

Yuval Viner, Co-CEO at BOS, stated, "We are pleased with the organic revenue growth we experienced across our Supply Chain and RFID and Mobile divisions.  As we have stated in the past, we are focused on strategically building our international pipeline, specifically for our Supply Chain division, while leveraging our leading position in Israel as a provider of RFID and Mobile solutions, and our first half results reflect our efforts to do so.  During the second quarter we announced two orders for our comprehensive Supply Chain solutions, and have also completed the delivery of a mobile system order for a top tier customer in the Israeli market, demonstrating our leadership position. We look forward to continuing this momentum into the second half of fiscal 2018, and meet our forecast for fiscal 2018 of revenues exceeding $29 million and net income surpassing $800,000."

Eyal Cohen, Co-CEO at BOS, added, "Revenue growth in the Supply Chain division was primarily due to a 54% increase in sales to the Far East, and growth in the RFID and Mobile division was largely attributable to orders from both new and existing customers within the Israeli market.  Our gross margins decreased slightly as compared to the comparable periods, due primarily to product mix, but we expect gross margins to improve in the second half of the year.  Furthermore, we continued to strengthen our balance sheet providing us with a solid platform for future growth."
