*Company reports net income of $2.8 million with forgiveness of PPP loan*
*PLAINVIEW, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 13, 2021 /* Vaso Corporation ("Vaso") (OTC PINK:VASO) today reported its operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
"In the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded an operating loss of $0.7 million on revenue of $16.1 million, as compared to an operating loss of $0.6 million on revenue of $16.3 million in the same quarter of the prior year. For the first half of the year, operating loss decreased by $0.7 million, or 37%, to $1.3 million on revenue of $32.7 million from $2.0 million on revenue $33.5 million for the first half of 2020," commented Dr. Jun Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vaso Corporation. "We are very much encouraged by the operating results this year so far, especially the progress in the IT segment despite the continued negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic."
"With the forgiveness of the $3.6 million PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) loan in June, which was accounted for as other income, the Company recorded net income of $2.8 million and $2.1 million for the three- and six-month periods ending June 30, 2021, respectively. Operating cash flow during the first half of the year was up 39% year-over-year, enabling us to pay down most of the debts," Dr. Ma continued.
"New variants of the COVID virus have brought new challenges to the world and have greatly slowed down the economic reopening in the country. However, we remain cautiously optimistic for the remainder of the year as we have reduced operating expenses, improved business efficiency, and prepared for the market uncertainty going forward," concluded Dr. Ma.
*Financial Results for Three Months Ended June 30, 2021*
For the three months ended June 30, 2021, revenue decreased 1% to $16.1 million from $16.3 million for the same period of 2020. When compared to the second quarter of 2020, revenue in the IT segment decreased $0.3 million or 3%, as this segment continued to experience the impact of COVID-19; revenue in our professional sales service segment increased $0.3 million or 5% as a result of higher deliveries of underlying equipment by our partner and a higher blended commission rate; and revenue in the equipment segment decreased $0.1 million or 10% as a result of lower EECP service revenue.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2021 increased 3% to $8.6 million, compared with a gross profit of $8.4 million for the same quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily the result of the increase in revenue in the professional sales service segment.
Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the second quarter of 2021 increased 4% to $9.2 million, when compared to the first quarter of 2020. The increase is primarily attributable to higher travel and personnel costs in the professional sales service and equipment segments as well as an increase in corporate accounting fees, offset by a reduction in the costs in the IT segment as a result of lower personnel costs.
Other income, net, increased $3.6 million in the second quarter 2021 from net expense of $54 thousand in the second quarter 2020. The increase was due primarily to the $3.6 million gain on the forgiveness of the PPP loan.
Net income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was $2.8 million, compared to a net loss of $0.7 million in the second quarter 2020. The improvement was primarily due to the forgiveness of the PPP loan.
Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation) was $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $121 thousand for the same period a year ago.
Net cash provided by operating activities in the first six months of 2021 was $5.6 million, a 39% improvement when compared to cash provided by operations of $4.0 million for the same period in 2020. The Company repaid debt totaling $3.0 million in the first half of 2021 and an additional $2.6 million in August 2021. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $9.4 million and $6.8 million, respectively.
