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

 

WAUKESHA, WI – November 16, 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 September 30, 2020. Management will host a teleconference at 4:30pm ET today to discuss these results with the financial community.

 

“While the economic environment continued to struggle during the third quarter, Telkonet’s performance has demonstrated our ability to successfully identify opportunities, even during a difficult situation,” stated Jason Tienor, Telkonet’s Chief Executive Officer. “Having shown year-over-year revenue growth during for the third quarter shows promise for what potentially exists in Telkonet’s target markets.”

 

Operational Summary:

 

·For the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020, revenues increased 2% to $2.24 million and decreased 38% to $5.33 million, respectively, compared to the prior year periods. Two customers accounted for approximately 67% of total product revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2020.
·Third quarter gross profits increased 26% to $1.09 million and the gross profit percentage increased 10% to 49%, compared to the prior year period. This was primarily driven by an improved gross profit percentage on recurring revenue due to decreases in call center staffing as the Company migrated to a combination of internal and external solutions.
·For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the gross profit percentage increased 6% to 44%, compared to the prior year period.
·Import tariffs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 resulted in an adverse impact of approximately 7% on gross profits, which is consistent with the prior year period.
·Telkonet was awarded a $1.0 million, marquis project to be executed across several phases with a renowned casino operator.

 

“As the quarter demonstrates, we’ve begun to recognized value in niche areas and capitalize on the versatility and flexibility of our platform and solutions,” continued Tienor. “With our latest hardware and software releases, Telkonet’s team continues to capitalize on innovation, market penetration across key industries and a growing understanding of customer needs.”

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:

 

 

 

 

 2 

 

 

 

 

·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.
