Share:

COPPELL, Texas, May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Costar Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Markets Group: CSTI) announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020 that have been reviewed by the independent accounting firm BKD, LLP.

Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2020

  • Revenues of $17,028, a 18.3% increase compared to the first quarter of 2019. The increase is primarily due to increases in revenue generated by the CohuHD Costar business segment.
  • Operating expenses were down 16.5% to $6,617, compared to $7,922 in the first quarter of 2019. Decrease is primarily driven by approximately $828 of one-time expenses at AVC during the first quarter of 2019 (e.g. move expenses, ERP implementation, professional fees and other restructuring fees).
  • GAAP net loss of $193, or ($0.12) per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $2,632, or ($1.69) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted earnings of $156, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to ($2,222), or ($1.43) per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Adjusted earnings, a non-GAAP measure, is defined below.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $500, compared to ($2,699) for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is defined below.

Sarah Ryder, the Company's Chief Financial Officer, stated, "While our first quarter is historically soft, our financial performance for the first quarter of 2020 benefited from the release of previously delayed projects in the traffic and critical infrastructure markets. These projects combined with shipments of $1.2M on a large international order, drove CohuHD's sizeable contribution to first quarter revenue. The uncertainty of the current economic environment presents challenges for our business, but increased demand in the traffic, critical infrastructure and education markets helped offset some of the softness experienced in parts of our retail vertical. We made aggressive cost reduction efforts heading into the second quarter to mitigate the impact of demand decreases in certain segments. I'm very pleased with our first quarter results and our strong start to a challenging year."

Scott Switzer, the Company's Interim Chief Executive Officer, went on to say, "Our facilities have remained in full operation under the Essential Service Business Exception of the Shelter in Place orders. Our employees are our greatest asset and we take their safety very seriously. Office personnel are working from home and we have implemented measures to help ensure the safety of our production workers. While the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted our business, we were able to take advantage of the Small Business Association's (SBA) Payroll Protection Program (PPP) and obtained a $3M loan in April 2020. Additionally, increased international demand, a few large retail projects and the launch of a new thermographic camera helped drive revenue growth in the first quarter of 2020. In April, we announced changes to our executive leadership team. We also launched our "One Costar" vision which focuses on consolidating business functions to drive greater cross-selling and operational efficiencies as well as creating a unified customer-centric culture throughout our organization. I am confident that with the team we have in place today, combined with the funding secured under the SBA PPP and the cost reductions we've enacted, we will be able to successfully navigate the current challenges in the marketplace and our business."

The Company's independent auditors completed their analysis of the Company's financial condition. The Independent Auditor's Review Report, including financial statements and applicable footnote disclosures, is available on our website at www.costartechnologies.com.
