MTS Announces 2020 Half Year 2020 Financial Results

Ra’anana, Israel / Powder Springs, Georgia, USA - May 6, 2021 - Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd. (MTS) (Nasdaq Capital Market: MTSL), a global provider of telecommunications expense management (TEM), call accounting and contact center software, today released its financial results for the six and twelve months ended December 31, 2020.

On April 15, 2021, we entered into a definitive agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with SharpLink, Inc., a leading online technology company that works with sports leagues, fantasy sports sites and media companies to connect fans to relevant and timely betting content sourced from its sportsbook partners.

Financial information

The Company recorded revenues of $1.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, compared with $2.6 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019. The Company incurred losses of $(1.2) million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, or $(0.17) per diluted share compared with net income of $85,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2019. On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), The Company posted a net loss of $(224,000) or $(0.03) per diluted share, for the six months ended December 31, 2020 compared with  net income of $262,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2019.

The Company recorded revenues of $4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared with $5.2 million for the comparable period in 2019. The Company incurred a net loss of $(1.8) million or $(0.30) per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared with a net loss of $(135,000) or $(0.03) per diluted share for the comparable period 2019. On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), the Company posted a net loss of $(376,000), or $(0.06) per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared with net income of $79,000, or $0.02 per diluted share for the comparable period in 2019.

During the period 2018-2020 an institutional investor invested, $3 million in a newly-created class of convertible preferred shares and $0.2 million in ordinary shares of the Company, at a price per preferred share and ordinary share of $1.14. The preferred shares are convertible into ordinary shares on a one to one basis. The stock purchase agreement with the institutional investor included a green shoe option for future investment of up to $1.5 million in the Company’s preferred shares at a price per preferred share of $1.14. During, 2019 and 2020, the institutional investor fully exercised its green shoe option as part of its $3 million investment.


As previously reported on April 15, 2021, we entered into a definitive agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with SharpLink, Inc. (“SharpLink”), a leading online technology company that works with sports leagues, fantasy sports sites and media companies to connect fans to relevant and timely betting content sourced from its sportsbook partners, and New SL Acquisition Corp., a company incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”). On the terms and subject to the satisfaction of the conditions described in the Merger Agreement, including approval of the transaction by the Company’s shareholders, Merger Sub will be merged with and into SharpLink (the “Merger”) with SharpLink surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

Mr. Roy Hess, Chief Executive Officer of MTS, said, “We are excited to achieve this major milestone by signing the definitive merger agreement with SharpLink, a promising leading online technology company that works with sports leagues, fantasy sports sites and media companies. We are also excited about our future growth strategy as well as the current industry's rapid expansion both in the U.S. and globally. Our results in 2020 reflect the substantial reduction of our ongoing operations which were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. During 2020, the Company continued implementing its efficiency plan and reduced its operational expenses which contributed to improved operating margins. Excluding the impact of one-time non-cash impairment charges, our net loss for the second half of 2020 was $(224,000) on a non-GAAP basis. In June 2019, we introduced Omnis - Contact Center Software with “Out-Of-The-Box” capabilities and open channel architecture. During the end of 2019, we started to see initial revenues from this new product, which we consider to be our main growth engine in the coming years. While our marketing of this new product was delayed by the onset of the pandemic we intend to accelerate its introduction in 2021.” Mr. Hess concluded, “we are looking forward to completing the SharpLink transaction in the near future and beginning a new chapter in the life of our company.”
