TransAct Technologies Reports Preliminary Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Share:

FST Recurring Revenues up 157% on a Year-Over-Year Basis

Completed $9.8 Million Public Offering of Common Stock

TransAct Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ:TACT) ("TransAct" or the "Company"), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today reported preliminary operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

"We are pleased with our execution in the third quarter and especially pleased with the strong momentum in our Food Service Technology ("FST") market. Our FST revenue increased 20% over Q3 2019, with our recurring FST revenue, which includes software, labels, and service sales, increasing 157% year over year. The traction we continue to generate in this market is incredibly encouraging and we are looking forward to further momentum with the recently announced native iOS BOHA! Restaurant Operations Platform and our all-new BOHA! Work Station that is paired with iPad," said Bart Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct. "In addition, our Casino and Gaming sales increased sequentially despite the very difficult operating market for casinos around the world."

Shuldman continued, "Finally, our recently completed $9.8 million common stock offering provides us with additional operating capital to increase penetration into the FST market and to support our new relationship with Apple. All said, despite headwinds to our customers businesses, we made significant strides this quarter toward long term growth and value creation for our shareholders."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

TransAct is providing certain non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes that these measures are helpful to investors and others in assessing the ongoing nature of what the Company's management views as TransAct's core operations. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide the Company with an understanding of one aspect of earnings before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide relevant and useful information to an investor evaluating the Company's operating performance because these measures are: (i) widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to non-recurring items excluded from the calculation of such measure; (ii) used as financial measurements by lenders and other parties to evaluate creditworthiness; and (iii) used by the Company's management for various purposes including strategic planning and forecasting, assessing financial performance and paying incentive compensation. The presentation of this non-GAAP information is not considered superior to or a substitute for, and should be read in conjunction with, the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income (loss), the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and is adjusted for share-based compensation. The Company adjusts EBITDA for share-based compensation because the Company considers share-based compensation to be a non-cash expense similar to depreciation and amortization. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.
