Vaso Corporation Announces Financial Results for Third Quarter 2018

Plainview, NY, November 14, 2018 – Vaso Corporation (OTC PK: VASO) (formerly Vasomedical, Inc.) today reported its operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2018.

“Total revenues for the three and nine months of 2018 were $18.8 million and $54.7 million, respectively, representing growth rate at 4% and 5% when compared to the same periods of last year,” commented Dr. Jun Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vaso.  “While all three of our business units contributed to the revenue growth, VasoHealthcare, the professional sales service business unit, enjoyed a 9% year-over-year revenue increase during the third quarter as a result of higher equipment delivery volume by our partner, turning deferred revenue into recognized revenue.”

“We also recorded improved quarterly and year-to-date operating results in 2018 as compared to 2017, and we anticipate the trend of growth in top- and bottom-line performances to continue for the remainder of the year and into the next year as deferred revenue and order backlog continue to convert to revenue when underlying equipment and services are delivered to customers.  We are excited about the future of the Company, as we believe our diversified operations and strong book of businesses could withstand market uncertainties and business fluctuations,” concluded Dr. Ma.

 Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2018

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, revenue increased 4% to $18.8 million from $18.0 million for the same period of 2017.  The year-over-year increase was the result of a $0.5 million, or 9%, growth in our professional sales service segment revenue, due to higher equipment deliveries by GE Healthcare (“GEHC”) compared to the third quarter 2017.  Revenue in our IT segment increased $0.2 million, or 2%, attributable to an increase in revenue in our NetWolves operation of network services business.  Revenue in the equipment segment increased $23 thousand for the quarter from the same quarter a year ago, due to an increase in EECP® business.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2018 increased 4% to $10.5 million, compared with $10.0 million for the third quarter of 2017.  The increase was principally due to the increase in revenue in the professional sales service segment and in the equipment segment, offset by a slightly lower gross profit margin in the IT segment as a result of the lower product margin sales mix in that segment.  Total gross profit margin was 56% of revenue for each of the three-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the third quarter of 2018 increased to $10.5 million from $10.4 million for the third quarter of the prior year.  The increase is primarily due to an increase in personnel costs in the IT segment, offset by lower costs in the professional sales service segment and the equipment segment.

The Company had an operating loss of $241 thousand for the third quarter 2018, a reduction of 61% when compared to an operating loss of $619 thousand for the same period in 2017.  The $378 thousand improvement was principally due to the higher revenue in the professional sales service segment. Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $377 thousand, compared with net loss of $816 thousand for the three months ended in the same period in 2017, an improvement of $439 thousand or 54%.

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation) was $476 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $152 thousand for the same period a year ago.

Net cash used in operating activities in the first nine months of 2018 was $1.5 million.  As of September 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $3.0 million, compared to cash and cash equivalents of $5.2 million at December 31, 2017.  We anticipate an improvement in cash flow from operations for the remainder of this year.
