Vaso Corporation Announces Financial Results for First Quarter 2020

Revenue Increases 11% Year-over-Year

PLAINVIEW, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 4, 2020 / Vaso Corporation (“Vaso”) (OTC PINK:VASO) today reported its operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

“The Company’s total revenue for the first quarter 2020 was $17.3 million, an increase of 11% when compared to the same quarter in the prior year, primarily as a result of a $1.8 million increase in revenue in our professional sales service segment,” commented Dr. Jun Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vaso Corporation. “Combined with a significant increase in the gross profit margin, Vaso Corporation achieved an impressive improvement of $1.4 million in operating income, reducing its quarterly operating loss by 53% year-over-year, to $1.3 million.”

“On the other hand, like many others, we started to experience the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic toward the end of the first quarter as the shutdown became widespread. All of our businesses have been adversely affected and much uncertainty continues to remain for the rest of the year. While we regard the safety and well-being of our employees and customers a top priority, we have also been actively engaging with our customers to maintain ongoing business relationships and help each other weather the storm. With the assistance of the $3.6 million PPP loan the Company received in the second quarter under the CARES Act, we believe Vaso will continue to be financially stable despite the anticipated volatility in orders, revenue and cash receipts,” concluded Dr. Ma.

Financial Results for Three Months Ended March 31, 2020

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, revenue increased 11% to $17.3 million from $15.5 million for the same period of 2019, due primarily to the increase of $1.8 million, or 51%, in revenue in our professional sales service segment as the result of higher equipment deliveries by GEHC during the quarter. Revenue in our IT segment increased less than 1%, to $11.3 million in the first quarter 2020, compared to the same quarter of 2019, while our equipment segment revenue decreased slightly to $778 thousand compared to the first quarter of 2019, principally due to lower service revenues in that segment.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 increased 17% to $9.2 million, compared with a gross profit of $7.9 million for the same quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily the result of the increase in revenue in the professional sales service and an increase in profit margin in the equipment segment due to the higher margin product mix, partially offset by a decrease in gross profit in the IT segment.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the first quarter of 2020 decreased 1% to $10.3 million, compared to the first quarter of 2019. The decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease in personnel costs in the IT and equipment segments, offset by an increase in SG&A costs in the professional sales service segment resulting from costs for the national sales meeting held during the quarter. (No national sales meeting was held in 2019.) SG&A expenses were 59% and 67% of revenue in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $1.4 million, a significant improvement over the loss of $2.8 million for the first quarter of 2019.
