TransAct Technologies Reports Preliminary Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

2020 Second Quarter Net Sales of $5.3 Million

Food Service Technology Revenues up 7% on a Year-Over-Year Basis

HAMDEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or the “Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today reported preliminary operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“TransAct’s second quarter performance was relatively solid given the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Notwithstanding these challenges and during the heart of the pandemic in Q2 2020, our Food Service Technology (“FST”) recurring revenue, which includes software, labels and service sales, increased over 100% from Q2 2019. Additionally, we continue to invest in our technology to enhance our position in the FST market. Our most recent addition to the BOHA! solution suite is BOHA! Employee Wellness. BOHA! Employee Wellness offers a safe and secure digital process with its mobile app to conduct wellness screenings that will either greenlight employees that can work or identify employees that must go home to recover,” said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct. “Although the near-term business environment is uncertain, we continue to be excited by the momentum of our BOHA! solution and the long-term opportunities it provides us. Our BOHA! solution continues to resonate with customers and orders for Q3 are projected to grow from the Q2 trough. Most exciting is our projection that BOHA! recurring revenue may exceed $1 million in the third quarter, which would be a first for TransAct. As the headwinds from COVID continue to abate our solutions will be ready to drive measurable improvement across restaurant and foodservice operators’ bottom line.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

TransAct is providing certain non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes that these measures are helpful to investors and others in assessing the ongoing nature of what the Company’s management views as TransAct’s core operations. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide the Company with an understanding of one aspect of earnings before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide relevant and useful information to an investor evaluating the Company’s operating performance because these measures are: (i) widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to non-recurring items excluded from the calculation of such measure; (ii) used as financial measurements by lenders and other parties to evaluate creditworthiness; and (iii) used by the Company’s management for various purposes including strategic planning and forecasting, assessing financial performance and paying incentive compensation. The presentation of this non-GAAP information is not considered superior to or a substitute for, and should be read in conjunction with, the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA is defined as net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and is adjusted for share-based compensation. The Company adjusts EBITDA for share-based compensation because the Company considers share-based compensation to be a non-cash expense similar to depreciation and amortization. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.
