Wayside Technology Group Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

Net Sales up 12% to $56.6 Million Despite Industry Challenges from COVID-19

Working Capital Improvements Drive Cash Position up 3x to $45.0 Million

Eatontown, NJ – August 12, 2020 – Wayside Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTG) (“Wayside” or the “Company”), an IT channel company providing innovative sales and distribution solutions, is reporting financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

The second quarter includes the results of operations from the acquisition of Interwork Technologies Inc., effective May 1, 2020. More information is available in the Company’s quarterly report filed on form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Second Quarter 2020 Summary vs. Same Year-Ago Quarter (excl. balance sheet items)

Net sales increased 12% to $56.6 million compared to $50.7 million.
Gross profit was $7.1 million compared to $7.8 million.
Net income was $0.6 million or $0.13 per share, compared to $1.9 million or $0.41 per share.
Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure defined below) was $2.1 million compared to $2.7 million.
At June 30, 2020, cash and cash equivalents increased significantly to $45.0 million compared to $15.0 million at December 31, 2019. The Company remains debt-free.

Management Commentary

“We continued to serve as a vital partner to our vendors during the second quarter despite the many COVID-19 related uncertainties we all faced,” said Dale Foster, CEO of Wayside. “During the quarter, we experienced softness in volumes with a few key vendors, which impacted margins and profitability. However, we still managed to increase sales by 12%, driven by both our acquisition of Interwork as well as driving growth with other vendors in our line card, which speaks to the investments we have made over the past 18 months to diversify our revenue streams.

“During the quarter, we also implemented an ‘early pay discount program’ with one of our large customers that has materially improved our working capital position, leaving us at quarter end with a cash balance of $45 million. This was completed in exchange for a concession of approximately $0.3 million of gross profit per quarter going forward. We believe this exchange significantly enhances our position to continue investing in our business to accelerate growth and profitability over the long term.

“Despite COVID-19 disruptions across our industry, we continued to make progress in improving our market position as a sales-driven organization. Our integration of Interwork is progressing very well and even exceeding expectations in certain areas, and we are well underway in leveraging their vendor relationships to grow our network.

“Further, in May we rebranded our core Lifeboat Distribution business to Climb Channel Solutions, which better reflects our focus on emerging data center, cloud and security products, all of which are

experiencing strong momentum in this new remote work and stay-at-home environment. We believe this name change will improve our outreach to disruptive technology vendors that can generate growth for years to come. As we continue to navigate this new environment, we remain committed to supporting our vendors and customers while building upon our resilient operational foundation.”

Dividend

Subsequent to the quarter, on August 4, 2020, Wayside’s board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share of its common stock payable on August 28, 2020 to shareholders of record on August 24, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net sales in the second quarter of 2020 increased 12% to $56.6 million compared to $50.7 million for the same period in 2019. Segment net sales for Climb Channel Solutions (formerly Lifeboat Distribution) in the second quarter increased 15% to $54.2 million compared to $47.3 million, and TechXtend segment net sales for the second quarter were $2.4 million compared to $3.4 million.

Adjusted gross billings (a non-GAAP financial measure defined below) in the second quarter of 2020 increased 11% to $158.7 million compared to $142.6 million for the same period last year.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2020 was $7.1 million compared to $7.8 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was driven by lower volumes among a few key vendors and an additional $0.3 million impact related to the implementation of an early-pay discount program for a large customer. There were also approximately $0.4 million of non-recurring benefits related to vendor discounts and marketing event income realized in the second quarter of 2019 that did not occur in 2020.

Total selling, general, and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses in the second quarter of 2020 were $6.4 million compared to $5.6 million in the same period in 2019. The increase was driven by costs related to the settlement with the North & Webster Group regarding their unsolicited proposal and director nominees, as well as costs related to the Company’s Interwork acquisition, both of which are discussed in detail in the company’s first quarter update. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A increased 20 basis points to 11.2% compared to 11.0% in Q2 2019.

Net income in the second quarter of 2020 was $0.6 million or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to $1.9 million or $0.41 per diluted share for the same period of 2019. The decrease was driven by costs related to the N&W settlement and Interwork acquisition. Net income excluding costs related to the N&W settlement and Interwork acquisition was $1.2 million or $0.28 per share, compared to $1.9 million or $0.41 per share in the second quarter of 2019.

The initial allocation of the purchase price of Interwork Technologies was based on preliminary information and is subject to adjustment during a one-year measurement period. This may include adjustments to intangible asset values, amortization and deferred taxes. More information is available in the Company’s quarterly report filed on Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2020 was $2.1 million compared to $2.7 million in the year-ago period.

Effective margin, which is defined as adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure defined below) as a percentage of gross profit, was 29.3% compared to 34.9% in the prior year period.


Graphic

Cash and cash equivalents increased to $45.0 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $15.0 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in cash was primarily driven by the early-pay discount program with one of the Company’s large customers. The Company remained debt free at both June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, with no borrowings outstanding under its $20 million credit facility.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted gross billings, net income excluding separation expenses, net of taxes, and adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of the performance of our business. Our use of these financial measures has limitations and you should not consider them in isolation or use them as substitutes for analysis of our financial results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The attached tables provide a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most nearly comparable measure under U.S. GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

All statements in this release other than statements of historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties. These risk and uncertainties include, without limitation, the continued acceptance of the Company’s distribution channel by vendors and customers, the timely

availability and acceptance of new products, product mix, market conditions, contribution of key vendor relationships and support programs, as well as factors that affect the software industry in general and other factors. Currently, one of the most significant factors, however, is the potential adverse effect of the current pandemic of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, on the Company, the global economy and financial markets. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts the Company will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, including the impact on our reseller partners and the end customer markets they serve, among others. The forward-looking statements contained herein are also subject generally to other risks and uncertainties that are described from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We provided a reconciliation of adjusted gross billings to net sales, which is the most directly comparable US GAAP measure. We use adjusted gross billings of product and services as a supplemental measure of our performance to gain insight into the volume of business generated by our business, and to analyze the changes to our accounts receivable and accounts payable. Our use of adjusted gross billings of product and services as analytical tools has limitations, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our financial results as reported under US GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, might calculate adjusted gross billings of product and services or similarly titled measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.
