Management Commentary

 

“In the fourth quarter of 2019, we continued to capitalize on the momentum we’ve generated throughout the year by successfully executing against the strategic priorities we outlined last year,” said Bob Ferris, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VirTra. “Financially, the fourth quarter was highlighted by $5.9 million in revenue and $729,000 in adjusted EBITDA. These financial improvements were in large part due to VirTra’s growing reputation as the most trusted name for effective simulation training and our team’s ability to effectively deliver orders from the robust pipeline of business we’ve built.

 

 
 

 

“Due to our positive financial results in the latter half of the year, we were able to grow revenues for the 14th consecutive year. Our ability to consistently drive growth on an annual basis is a direct result of continuously introducing innovative solutions to the market, like our driving simulators, 4-K 300-degree simulators, and new drop-in recoil kit capabilities, while expanding the depth and breadth of our certified training curriculum. These products and programs enable us to better serve our customers and improve our industry position for the future.

 

“We’ve entered 2020 with a $9.6 million backlog along with the most expansive customer and product portfolio in our company’s history. While we cannot predict the full impact of COVID-19 on our industry, effectively training law enforcement and military personnel will remain integral to ensuring the safety of our communities, especially during this time. We are honored to play our part to ensure first responders have the best training possible.”

 

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

 

Total revenue increased 133% to $5.9 million from $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in total revenue was due to increases in sales of simulators, accessories, curriculum and training.

 

Gross profit increased 176% to $2.6 million (44.8% of total revenue) from $957,000 (37.8% of total revenue) in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to differences in the quantity and type of simulator systems, type of accessories and variety of services sold.

 

Net operating expense decreased 19% to $2.3 million from $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease in net operating expense was due to decreases in general and administrative expense as well as research and development expense due to custom training content development projects for clients.

 

Income from operations was $356,000 compared to a loss of $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

Net loss totaled $66,000 or $(0.01) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $1.3 million or $(0.16) per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

Adjusted EBITDA was $729,000 compared to a loss of $246,000 in the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

At December 31, 2019, backlog totaled approximately $9.6 million. At December 31, 2019, accounts receivable and unbilled revenues totaled approximately $5.9 million compared to $2.0 million at December 31, 2018, an increase of $3.9 million. Cash and cash equivalents and certificates of deposit totaled $3.3 million at quarter end.

 

Full Year 2019 Financial Results

 

Total revenue increased 3% to a record $18.7 million from $18.1 million in 2018. The increase in total revenue was driven by increases in sales of simulators, accessories, curriculum and training, and recurring extended warranty revenue in 2019.

 

Gross profit decreased 12% to $9.7 million (51.9% of total revenue) from $11.0 million (61.1% of total revenue) in the 2018. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to differences in the quantity and type of simulator systems, type of accessories and variety of services sold.

 

 
 

 

Net operating expense decreased 6% to $9.5 million from $10.0 million in 2018. The decrease in net operating expense was due to a decrease in stock option compensation and redemptions and a decrease in professional services and public company expenses, which were partially offset by an increase in salaries and benefits, an increase in sales and marketing, and an increase in facilities costs.

 

Income from operations was $262,000 compared to $1.0 million in 2018.

 

Net loss totaled $75,000, or $(0.01) per diluted share, compared to net income of $818,000, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the comparable period a year ago.

 

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.1 million compared to $1.9 million in 2018.

About the Presentation of Adjusted EBITDA

 

Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and before other non-operating costs and income (“Adjusted EBITDA”) is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA also includes non-cash stock option expense and other than temporary impairment loss on investments. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently. VirTra calculates its Adjusted EBITDA to eliminate the impact of certain items it does not consider to be indicative of its performance and its ongoing operations. Adjusted EBITDA is presented herein because management believes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to VirTra’s investors regarding VirTra’s financial condition and results of operations and because Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in VirTra’s industry, several of which present a form of Adjusted EBITDA when reporting their results. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of VirTra’s results as reported under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative for net income, cash flows from operating activities and other consolidated income or cash flows statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. A reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the following table:
