Exhibit 99.1

 

BOS Reports Second Quarter of 2020 Financial Results

 

RISHON LE ZION, Israel, August 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – BOS Better Online Solutions Ltd. (“BOS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BOSC), a global provider of intelligent systems and services for production and logistics, reported its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2020.

 

Eyal Cohen, BOS CEO, stated: “Despite the outstanding performance of our Supply Chain and RFID divisions, we had a net loss of $1.4 million in the first half of the year. The loss was primarily derived from a write off of the entire intangible assets of the Robotics business and an impairment of its inventory, in a total amount of $1.7 million.”

 

Operational Profit (loss) by divisions  Six months ended June 30, 
(U.S. dollars in thousands)  2020   2019 
Supply Chain   613    568 
RFID   354    (284)
Intelligent Robotics   (2,215)   41 
Operating profit (loss)  $(1,248)  $325 

 

Eyal Cohen added: “We are effecting a turnaround process in our Robotics business, which is longer and deeper than initially anticipated. We are at the final stages of restructuring the operational side of the Robotics business to improve our competitive advantage. We have significantly reduced the cost of materials for our products and our operational expenses, and implemented additional controls to prevent future losses due to underestimated costs of projects.

 

The COVID 19 pandemic has made it much more difficult for the Robotics business to penetrate the U.S. market, which we have targeted as a key market for this business. In response, we are making personnel changes in the U.S. sales team and are adjusting the U.S. marketing activity. Also, we believe that our success in reducing the cost of materials improves our chances of growing the revenues of our Robotics business line in the rest of the world. Consequently, we have decided to work extensively towards increasing our network of distributors outside of the United States.

 

 

 

Historically, BOS has been able to overcome challenges presented in connection with other acquisitions such as of the Supply Chain division and the RFID divisions, which experienced substantial operating losses before becoming profitable.

 

There is no doubt that the Robotics business is the toughest challenge we have faced to date. However, with a clear plan for action in the near-term and a firm commitment of BOS’ employees and management to success, we believe that the Robotics business will reach an operational breakeven point in the fourth quarter of this year.

 

Outlook for the second half of the year 2020

 

Revenues for the first six months of year 2020 amounted to $14.9 million compared to $16.5 million in the comparable period last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic on sales of all of the Company’s operating businesses. We expect that we will make up for this shortfall in the second half of year 2020 so that the year 2020 revenues will remain the same as in the year 2019.

 

Based on the strong relative performance of our Supply Chain and RFID divisions in the first half of the year and the restructuring of the Robotics business operations, we further anticipate that BOS will return to a net profit in the third quarter of this year.”
