FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Telkonet Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Teleconference and Webcast to be Held Today at 4:30 P.M. EST

 

WAUKESHA, WI – August 14, 2020 -- Telkonet, Inc. (OTCQB: TKOI), (the “Company”, “Telkonet”), an innovation leader in commercial intelligent automation and energy management solutions for Hospitality, Healthcare, Education, Military and Residential markets announces financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Management will host a teleconference at 4:30pm ET today to discuss these results with the financial community.

 

“While 2020 has been a difficult year throughout the economy, our target markets have been affected especially hard,” stated Jason Tienor, Telkonet’s CEO. “Although we saw increased customer orders placed at the end of the second quarter, the first and second quarters were fundamentally impacted as certain customers in the Hospitality and Educational industries, Telkonet’s largest revenue segments, were forced to close their operations due to the pandemic. Ongoing activity within secondary markets, international efforts and strategic discussions will continue to be areas of focus for the Company.”

 

Operational Summary:

 

For the six month period ended June 30, 2020:

 

·Gross profit percentage increased 2% to 40% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the prior year period. This was primarily driven by an improved gross profit percentage on reoccurring revenue due to decreases in call center staffing as the Company migrated to a combination of internal and external solutions.
·Import tariffs resulted in an adverse impact of approximately 7% on gross profits for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to approximately 9% for the prior year period.
·Received $0.91 million in loan proceeds under the Paycheck Protection Program authorized by the Keeping American Workers Employed and Paid Act, which is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
·Awarded additional phase in large scale hospitality project in Las Vegas, NV.

 

“While the ongoing difficulties in Telkonet’s target markets currently creates broad uncertainty in our business, we remain bullish on our prospects moving forward based on our prior year's results entering into the year as well as our ongoing strategic discussions for Telkonet’s future,” continues Tienor. “With continued execution of our strategic priorities to position for the long-term recovery, including operational efficiencies, ongoing cost-savings measures and market expansion, we hope to see a rapid return to pre-pandemic levels once the economy stabilizes."

For the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020:

NON-GAAP Financial Measures

 

Telkonet will post to the Company's investor relations web site (www.telkonet.com) any reconciliation of differences between non-GAAP financial information that may be required in connection with issuing the Company's financial results.

 

The Company, as is common in its industry, uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measurement gauge to demonstrate earnings exclusive of interest and non-cash events. The Company manages its business based on its cash flows. The Company, in its daily management of its business affairs and analysis of its monthly, quarterly and annual performance, makes its decisions based on cash flows, not on the amortization of assets obtained through historical activities. The Company, in managing its current and future affairs, cannot affect the amortization of the intangible assets to any material degree, and therefore uses adjusted EBITDA as its primary management guide. Adjusted EBITDA is not, and should not be considered, an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss), or any other measure for determining operating performance of liquidity, as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). In assessing the overall health of its business for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company excluded items in the following general category described below:

 

·Stock-based compensation: The Company believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, varying methodologies for determining stock-based compensation and the assumptions and estimates involved in those determinations, the exclusion of non-cash stock-based compensation enhances the ability of management and investors to understand the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation on our operating results. Further, the Company believes that excluding stock-based compensation expense allows for a more transparent comparison of its financial results to the previous period.

Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, a measure of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, investors are cautioned that there are inherent limitations associated with the use of the non-GAAP financial measure as an analytical tool. In particular, the non-GAAP financial measure is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and many of the adjustments to the GAAP financial measure reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in the Company's financial results for the foreseeable future. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing specific information in the reconciliation included in this press release regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measure.
