Exhibit 99.1



Socket Mobile Reports First Quarter Results


NEWARK, Calif., – April 29, 2020 –

Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), a leading innovator of data capture and delivery solutions for enhanced productivity, today reported 2020 first quarter results, which include the early stages of COVID-19 impacts.


Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $4.2 million, a 9 percent decrease compared to revenue of $4.6 million for the first quarter of 2019. Gross profit margins for the first quarter of 2020 was 52.7 percent and 51.8 percent in the first quarter of 2019. Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 was $2.31 million and $2.35 million for the first quarter of 2019. Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $90,000, or ($0.01) per share, compared to a net income of $12,000, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2019.


“Our Q1 results were adversely impacted by the COVID -19 pandemic, most significantly in March 2020, and the impact has continued into Q2. Over 70% of our business is related to retail-type activities, so we have experienced a significant decrease in demand for our products due to widespread business closures. We continue to have some demand from those conducting essential services. During this challenging time, we are focused on protecting all of Socket Mobile’s stakeholders,” said Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer.


“We are tightly managing our liquidity for our operating needs. In addition to leveraging the revolving credit facilities, we have received loan proceeds of approximately $1.0 million under the Paycheck Protection Program to safeguard our employees.


“Socket Mobile is better positioned to cope with today’s new operating environment as we moved our sales to an online model a few years ago, and in 2019 almost 100% of our sales were online sales. In addition, we expect the data capture requirement to evolve to meet many new requirements to document, track and trace using Apple and other consumer devices. We remain in a good position to support these requirements.” Mills concluded.
