Vislink Reports Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Sarasota, Florida, UNITED STATES


Mt. Olive, NJ, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vislink (Nasdaq: VISL), a global technology leader in the capture, delivery and management of high quality, live video and associated data in the media & entertainment, law enforcement and defense markets, announced its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. Company management will host a live video conference call to discuss the second quarter 2022 results on Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern (9:00 a.m. Central) which will be followed by a Q&A session. The conference call will be accessible at the following link: https://marketscale.com/live/vislink-q2-2022-financial-results-video-conference-call/. An archived replay will be made available after the call ends.

Financial Update:

  • Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were $6.8 million, compared to $7.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Revenues for the first half of 2022 were $13.9 million, compared to $11.6 million for the first half of 2021.
  • Gross margins were 53% of revenue in the second quarter of 2022 compared to 52% of revenue for the second quarter of 2021.
  • In the second quarter of 2022, net loss attributable to common shareholders was $2.6 million or $(0.05) per share, compared to $834,000, or $(0.02) per share for the second quarter of 2021 and $2.8 million, or $(0.06) per share for the first quarter of 2022.
  • EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes depreciation and amortization) for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was negative $2.1 million compared to negative $578,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

“While our results in the second quarter fell short of our expectations, we are encouraged to see that business conditions in our key market sectors have markedly improved,” said Carleton Miller, CEO of Vislink. “The return of live events being held and positive traction for our new products has increased opportunities and led to robust quoting activity, despite delays in projects, particularly in government markets. This has allowed us to build a very strong pipeline of business for both the near and longer-term that we anticipate closing.”

He continued, “In the live event production market, our end-to-end solutions now incorporate the AI-assisted and 5G streaming technologies we added when we acquired Mobile Viewpoint last year. This expanded technology suite allows us to leverage our traditional strength in supporting large global live events to also supply smaller events, venues and leagues. We believe these capabilities provide us a lower cost of entry to capturing business from the rapidly growing lower tier market for live event production, and now gives us a presence in addressing all levels of competition, from local grassroots to professional.”

“Similarly, our quoting activity for government business has rebounded after delays due to long sales cycles and government funding slowdowns. In this market, we continue to be a leading provider of solutions that deliver the tactical insights demanded by law enforcement, public safety and first responder organizations, especially with the release of new solutions including the AeroLink aerial video downlink system. As a result, we are hopeful to close on a number of additional opportunities over the coming months.”

He continued, “Our revenue was also affected by impacts we experienced to our supply chain. While we had taken steps previously to mitigate such impacts, including purchasing critical components and producing more finished goods to service our customers, we are still experiencing intermittent shortages of critical components.”

“In response to the above challenges, we have undertaken a comprehensive transformation of virtually every aspect of our operations, with the goal of optimizing our business processes and reducing our cost structure by:

  • consolidating our worldwide footprint, which will result in reduced headcount and significantly lower operating expenses;
  • reconfiguring our go-to-market approach to deliver enhanced customer service and engagement;
  • streamlining and simplifying our solution offerings and expecting to derive a greater portion of future revenue from new targeted product releases;
  • making significant investments in our engineering capabilities while consolidating our Vislink and Mobile Viewpoint technology assets.”

He concluded, “In summary, we believe that the above actions will help us deliver better customer responsiveness, a fully streamlined product development methodology, and a substantially lower cost of operations. We are optimistic that the improved sales climate, coupled with our more efficient operating base, will put us in a position to finish strongly in the remainder of fiscal 2022.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure: EBITDA

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), we are presenting EBITDA in this earning release and the related earning conference call. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. We define EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization expense and interest income (expense). We have presented EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance, to establish budgets and to develop operational goals for managing our business. In particular, we believe that excluding the impact of these expenses in calculating EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance.
