CEO Commentary

Brian Crowley, chief executive officer for Bsquare, commented on Q3 results and business activity, "Third quarter revenue came in at the high end of our expectations and, combined with our previously announced expense reductions, drove solid performance in the quarter. Our business focus remains driving revenue growth through our Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 initiatives, maintaining revenue from TestQuest and other products while investing in new areas where we see growth potential and expanding our Microsoft Windows embedded licensing and service revenue in Europe. We will continue in our efforts to return service margin to an acceptable level. We are still carrying excess service capacity and expect that we will absorb some of that capacity into new projects and our Windows 8 initiatives."

Since its last earnings announcement, the Company made progress on a number of key initiatives, including:

  • Mike Stipe was hired as senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. Mr. Stipe brings more than 26 years of sales experience in executive and management positions at both Fortune 500 and entrepreneurial technology companies. This addition to the Bsquare leadership team puts the Company in a position to invigorate sales through direct and distribution channels worldwide;

  • The Company announced a Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Porting Service for Android, iOS and legacy Windows applications. The service ports existing applications from various platforms to Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 quickly and affordably and delivers completed applications for submission for Windows Store and Windows Phone Store certification;

  • The Company and AOpen America, a leading manufacturer of applied computing solutions, announced a partnership to accelerate the capabilities of AOpen's Certified System Builders to more effectively tap into the burgeoning market for specialized devices built on Windows Embedded technologies; and

  • The Company announced general availability of the next generation Mobile Development Platform (MDP/T) for Android tablets based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon™ S4 Pro APQ8064 processor. The MDP/T provides application developers and device manufacturers with access to a high-performance Android 4.0 platform for developing, testing, optimizing and showcasing applications and games.

Financial Commentary on Third Quarter Results (Y/Y Comparison)

  • The increase in third-party software sales, up $2.7 million, or 18%, was driven primarily by a $1.5 million increase in sales of Windows Mobile operating systems which, in turn, was driven by a large sale to a customer in Asia. The current period also includes $455,000 of Qualcomm board sales which were classified as proprietary software revenue in the prior year ($525,000 in the year-ago period);

  • The decrease in engineering services revenue, down $1.2 million, or 17%, was driven by a $1.9 million decline in North American service revenue resulting from the MyFord Touch™ program and revenue contribution from a major customer in the year-ago quarter not present in the current quarter;

  • The decrease in service margin, down 30% or seven percentage points, was due to a decrease in realized rate per hour, offset partially by a reduction in cost per billable hour;

  • The increase in proprietary software margin, up 29% or 18 percentage points, was driven by the classification of low margin Qualcomm board sales as proprietary software in the year-ago period (versus third-party software in the current period) and higher revenue, excluding Qualcomm board sales, in the current period driven by the first sales of the Company's HTML5 Rendering Engine product;

  • The decline in operating expenses, down $1.56 million, or 29%, was primarily attributable to a decrease in sales expense due to staff reductions and associated costs and a decline in stock compensation expense; and

  • Quarter-end cash and investments of $19.6 million, including long-term amounts, increased by $1.9 million compared to September 30, 2011, driven largely by positive EBITDAS.

Outlook

The Company currently has the following expectations for Q4 2012:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $24 million to $26 million; and

  • Cash and investments are projected to increase by approximately $1.6 million, net of an earn-out payment in the amount of $632,000.

(1) EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure. Generally, a non-GAAP
 financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance,
 financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts
 that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable
 measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDAS is
 defined as net income (loss) before income taxes, interest income,
 depreciation expense on our fixed assets and amortization expense
 (including impairment) on our intangible assets, and stock-based
 compensation. EBITDAS should not be construed as a substitute for net
 income (loss) or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities (all
 as determined in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of analyzing our
 operating performance, financial position and cash flows, as EBITDAS is
 not defined by GAAP. However, the Company regards EBITDAS as a complement
 to net income and other GAAP financial performance measures, including an
 indirect measure of operating cash flow.
