Vaso Corporation Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter 2020

PLAINVIEW, N.Y. August 14, 2020 – Vaso Corporation (“Vaso”) (OTCMKTS: VASO) today reported its operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues its unprecedented impact on the nation’s economy and people’s lives, and all of our businesses have been adversely affected as well. During the second quarter of 2020, the Company experienced a drop in its total revenue, by 7% year-over-year, although we still recorded a higher revenue year-to-date,” commented Dr. Jun Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vaso Corporation. “At the same time, however, quarterly operating expenses were reduced by 10% from a year ago; as a result, operating loss for the quarter only increased slightly when compared to the same quarter last year. For the first half of the year, we maintained a significant improvement in the operating results over the same period of the prior year.”

“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown in most parts of the country, we have taken steps to protect the safety of our employees and have reached out to many of our customers and suppliers to jointly assess and mitigate risks. As uncertainties in our markets are expected to continue for an extended period of time, we are exercising extra caution in managing business expenses to stay financially stable and be ready for the reopening of the economy,” concluded Dr. Ma.

Financial Results for Three Months Ended June 30, 2020

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, revenue decreased 7% to $16.3 million from $17.5 million for the same period of 2019, as all three business segments were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. When compared to the second quarter of 2019, revenue in the IT segment decreased $0.6 million or 5%; revenue in our professional sales service segment decreased $0.4 million or 8%; and revenue in the equipment segment decreased $0.2 million or 21%. The decreases were due to lower deliveries of equipment and lower service revenues, all primarily caused by the pandemic and the economic shutdown.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 decreased 11% to $8.4 million, compared with a gross profit of $9.4 million for the same quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily the result of the decrease in revenue as discussed above.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the second quarter of 2020 decreased 10% to $9.0 million, compared to the first quarter of 2020. The decrease is primarily attributable to personnel cost reductions in the IT segment and decreases in travel and other operating costs as a result of the
shutdown, as well as a decrease in operating costs of the EECP operation.

Other income and expense, net, improved by $149 thousand in the second quarter 2020 compared to the second quarter 2019, due primarily to a gain on the sale of 51% of the EECP business and to a decrease in interest costs resulting from the reduction of debt.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $0.6 million, an improvement of $153 thousand or 20% over the loss of $0.7 million for the second quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash stockbased compensation) was $221 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $228
thousand for the same period a year ago.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first six months of 2020 was $4.0 million, a significant improvement when compared to net cash used in operations of $2.4 million for the same period in 2019. As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $6.9 million and $2.1 million, respectively.
