BELLEVUE, WA, August 4, 2011 – BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart, connected devices, today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011. Total revenue for the quarter was $23.4 million, down 13% year-over-year, while total revenue for the six months was $49.4 million, up 13%. Net income for the quarter was $21,000, or $0.00 per share, down 99% year-over-year, while net income for the six months was $205,000, or $0.02 per share, down 62%.

The year-ago quarter was positively affected by a cost overrun contract amendment signed with the Ford Motor Company in the amount of $2.5 million, or $0.24 per share. The year-ago quarter was also positively affected by the reversal of a loss contract accrual related to the Ford project recorded in the first quarter of 2010 in the amount of $390,000 or $0.04 per share. The year-ago six month results were negatively affected by an auction rate security write down in the amount of $546,000, or $0.05 per share.

CEO Commentary on Business and Financial Results

Brian Crowley, chief executive officer of BSQUARE, commented on the current quarter results and business activity, “We have talked for several quarters about various investments the company is making such as our Handset Certification Platform, or HCP, sales expansion in Europe and Asia, and the expansion of our Asia development platform. Some of these investments are still in their infancy and some are just beginning to pay off. For example, I am pleased to report that in Q2 we recognized our first revenue from our HCP installation at our recently announced customer, China Mobile. I also currently expect that we will start a HCP trial with a North American mobile operator in Q3. I am also pleased that we have generated $0.17 per share of EBITDA over the last six months, which is roughly in-line with the baseline of $0.14-0.15 per share, per quarter that we had previously communicated when factoring in the investments we made in the first half of 2011 which totaled roughly $1.0 million, or $0.09 per share, and the service project overruns that negatively affected the quarter.”

Financial Commentary on Three Month Results

 

   

The decrease in third-party software sales (down $958,000, or 6%) was driven by lower purchasing volumes from several of the Company’s larger Microsoft® General Embedded licensing customers, partially offset by higher Microsoft® Windows Mobile® and Adobe® Flash® product sales;

 

   

The service revenue decline of $3.3 million, or 34%, was due to a $3.8 million decrease in Ford-related service revenue ($2.5 million of which was due to the cost overrun contract amendment signed in the year-ago quarter), offset partially by higher service revenue in Asia and in North America outside of Ford;

 

   

The increase in proprietary software revenue (up $771,000, or 81%) was driven by higher royalties from the Company’s Texas Instruments OMAP board support packages and sales of Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Development Platform products, as well as increased product support revenue;

 

   

The 13% (two percentage points) increase in third-party software gross margin was driven by increased sales of higher-margin Adobe Flash products, and lower sales to our top Microsoft General Embedded customers, which are generally lower margin;

 

   

Service margin decreased 62% (29 percentage points) due primarily to the positive impact in the year-ago quarter of the Ford amendment and reversal of the loss contract accrual as well as the project overruns which negatively affected the current quarter;

 

   

Operating expenses increased $1.3 million, or 35%, due primarily to the Company’s international expansion and additional stock compensation expense of $380,000, or $0.03 per share; and

 

   

Quarter-end cash and investments of $23.2 million, including long-term amounts, were up $1.8 million compared to March 31, 2011, and $6.0 million year-over-year. DSO decreased to 52 days in Q2 compared to 55 in Q1.

Outlook

The Company currently has the following expectations for Q3 as compared to the current quarter:

 

   

Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $24 million to $26 million. Third-party software sales are expected to improve as several customers that overbought in previous quarters are expected to increase purchasing volumes. Service revenue is expected to improve based on existing backlog, elimination of overrun issues and utilization improvement whereas proprietary software is expected to decline due to a decrease in Texas Instrument OMAP BSP royalties;

 

   

Service gross margin is expected to improve due to elimination of the overrun issues that negatively impacted Q2;

 

   

Profitability and EBITDA are expected to improve; and

 

   

Cash and investments are projected to be flat or up slightly.

(1) EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before income taxes, interest income, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. EBITDA should not be construed as a substitute for net income (loss) or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities (all as determined in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position and cash flows, as EBITDA is not defined by GAAP. However, the Company regards EBITDA as a complement to net income and other GAAP financial performance measures, including an indirect measure of operating cash flow.
