Management Commentary

“Q2 was another good quarter for One Stop Systems, as we achieved record Q2 revenue of $18.3 million, up 7% sequentially and up 23% over the same year-ago quarter,” stated OSS president and CEO, David Raun. “The strong growth in Q2 was largely attributable to two factors: the continued strength of our customer in the media and entertainment space, where revenue grew 135% to a record $6.4 million; and the exceptional performance of our European unit, Bressner, which continued to leverage strong inventory investments and drive market share expansion, resulting in its revenue increasing 31% to $7.6 million.

“Aligned with our strategy to bring more standard products to the AI Transportable market, we shipped our Centauri product that we announced in April to one of our autonomous truck customers. Centauri is a PCIe Gen 4 NVMe rugged storage solution offering high capacity in a proprietary compact, hot-swappable canister, which makes it ideal for capturing and transporting the vast amount of data generated in autonomous vehicles.

“Also, on the technology front, we are one of the first developers to ship PCIe Gen 5 technology. This is key to our AI Transportable and technology leadership strategy since it doubles the performance of PCIe Gen 4. Our plan includes deploying this next gen technology in multiple additional OSS products over the coming quarters, including our next innovative product we are planning to announce at the Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo in San Jose, California in September.

“OSS is currently supplying compute and/or storage solutions to three of the leaders in the Level 4 and 5 long haul hub-to-hub market. Our products work in conjunction with their software to gather, store, and/or process data from multiple sensors embedded around the vehicle, including LiDAR, radar, and cameras.

“We believe all three of these customers could end up in our top 10 customer list in 2022, and over time could be some of our largest accounts. Although our relationship and what we supply varies, we continue to learn and lead the market as we define next generation products.

“Beyond autonomous trucks, we have keen interest and activity with other vehicles including shuttles, buses, and ships. We also continue to see the opportunity for AI Transportables to be significant in the armed forces and throughout the military theater. Such applications take significant time to close and even more time to generate revenue, but we are now engaged with multiple high-profile programs, which include drones, aircraft, ships, and land vehicles.

“These applications are perfect for disruptive solutions from OSS where we can provide high performance without compromise in compact rugged form factors. We look forward to sharing more on this front, as we turn these opportunities into major program wins over the quarters ahead.”

Outlook

For the third quarter of 2022, OSS expects revenue of approximately $18.5 million, which would represent 16% growth over the third quarter of last year.

Q2 2022 Financial Summary

Revenue in the second quarter of 2022 totaled $18.3 million, up 23% compared to $14.9 million in the same year-ago quarter.

The core OSS business revenue increased 18% to $10.7 million in the second quarter, representing 59% of total revenue. Revenue from Bressner, OSS’ European subsidiary, increased 31% to $7.6 million, which represented 41% of total second quarter revenue. Bressner’s increase was attributable to increased market share, made possible by strong sales efforts and strategic inventory buys.

Gross profit in the second quarter increased $548,000 to $5.2 million. The gross margin for the core OSS business decreased 3.7 percentage points from the same year ago quarter to 33.0%. This was largely due to the strength of record media and entertainment revenue, which has lower margin.

Bressner’s gross margin percentage also decreased slightly to 21.9% in the second quarter, compared to 22.6% in the same year-ago quarter, primarily due to increased material and transportation costs.

Overall, gross margin was 28.4% in the second quarter, compared to 31.2% from the same year-ago quarter. The aggregate 2.8 percentage point decrease from the prior year quarter was primarily due to increased revenue from the lower margin media and entertainment customer and strong Bressner revenue.

Overall quarterly operating expenses increased 16% to $4.8 million, while operating expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased to 26.2% compared to 27.7% in the same year-ago quarter. This increase in operating expense was primarily due to the company’s investments in pursuing the AI Transportable market, resulting in increases of $246,000 in marketing and selling expenses, $244,000 in R&D expense and $173,000 in G&A expenses.

GAAP net income totaled $323,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, decreasing from net income of $1.7 million or $0.09 per diluted share in the same year-ago period that included a one-time benefit of $1.5 million, or $0.08 per share, for forgiveness of a PPP loan and related interest.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $871,000 or $0.04 per diluted share for the quarter, up from $812,000 or $0.04 per diluted share in the same year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP metric, was $1.2 million or 6.5% of quarterly revenue as compared to $1.4 million or 9.3% of quarterly revenue in the same year-ago quarter.

Both non-GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA exclude the PPP loan and interest forgiveness.

First Half 2022 Financial Summary

For the first half of 2022, revenue was $35.4 million, an increase of 25% from $28.2 million in the first half of 2021. The increase was due primarily to an increase in shipments of product to the company’s media and entertainment customer.

Core OSS business increased 20%, contributing $21.3 million of total revenue, and Bressner contributed $14.1 million, an increase of 34%.

OSS overall gross profit improved $1.3 million to $10.3 million or 29.2% of revenue. This compares to $9.1 million or 32.2% of revenue in the first half of 2021.

Gross margin for the core OSS business decreased to 34.3%, as compared to 37.3% in the first half of 2021. This is largely due to the 80% year-over-year revenue increase from the company’s media and entertainment customer. Bressner's gross margin decreased to 21.5% due to higher transportation and material costs, as compared to 23.6% a year ago.

For the second half of 2022, OSS expects a slight improvement in overall gross margin compared to the first half of 2022.

Total operating expenses increased 12% to $9.3 million. This increase is primarily due to an increase of $549,000 in selling and marketing expense resulting from additional marketing, trade shows and travel, and an increase in R&D expense of $656,000 for the development of new standard products for the AI Transportables market. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $210,000 in G&A expenses.

Operating expense as a percentage of revenue decreased to 26.3% compared to 29.4% a year ago, reflecting on-going cost containment efforts.

Income from operations increased $260,000 to $1.1 million compared to $792,000 in the first half of 2021.

Net income on a GAAP basis was $902,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $1.7 million or $0.09 per diluted share, which included a one-time benefit of $1.5 million or $0.08 per share due to forgiveness of the PPP loan and related interest. After giving effect to this one-time benefit, on a proforma basis there was a year-over-year increase of $618,000.

Non-GAAP net income totaled $1.8 million or $0.09 per diluted share as compared to $1.5 million or $0.08 per diluted share in the same year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $2.6 million or 7.3% of revenue compared to $2.5 million or 8.7% of revenue in the first half of 2021.

Both non-GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA exclude the PPP loan and interest forgiveness.

On June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents totaled $2.9 million with short-term investments of $11.5 million for a combined total of $14.4 million. This compares to $15.8 million on March 31, 2022. During the second quarter, the company invested an additional $4.0 million in inventory.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company believes that the use of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or adjusted EBITDA, is helpful for an investor to assess the performance of the Company. The company defines adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition expenses, impairment of long-lived assets, financing costs, fair value adjustments from purchase accounting, stock-based compensation expense and expenses related to discontinued operations.
  
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash operating expenses, the company believes that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash and non-recurring expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between the company’s core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing the company with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating the company’s own core business operating results over different periods of time.
  
The company’s adjusted EBITDA measure may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the company’s industry, as other companies in the company’s industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. The company’s adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The company does not consider adjusted EBITDA to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results

Adjusted EPS excludes the impact of certain items, and therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The company believes that exclusion of certain selected items assists in providing a more complete understanding of the company’s underlying results and trends and allows for comparability with the company’s peer company index and industry. The company uses this measure along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures to manage the company’s business and to evaluate the company’s performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace. The company defines non-GAAP income (loss) as income or (loss) before amortization, stock-based compensation, expenses related to discontinued operations, impairment of long-lived assets and non-recurring acquisition costs. Adjusted EPS expresses adjusted income (loss) on a per share basis using weighted average diluted shares outstanding.
  
Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted EPS financial adjustments described above, and investors should not infer from the company’s presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

The following table reconciles non-GAAP net income (loss) and basic and diluted earnings per share:
