B.O.S. Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2014
Increase in revenues and gross profit as compared to the comparable quarter last year
RISHON LEZION, Israel, August 21 , 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. (the “Company”, “BOS”) (Nasdaq: BOSC), a leading Israeli provider of RFID and supply chain solutions to enterprises, today reported its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014.
Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 grew to $6.9 million as compared to $6.7 million in the comparable quarter last year.
Gross profit margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 improved to 18.5% as compared to 17.6% in the comparable quarter last year.
Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 amounted to $85,000 as compared to a net loss of $59,000 in the comparable quarter last year.
On a non-GAAP basis, the net profit for the second quarter of 2014 was $17,000 as compared to a net profit of $40,000 in the comparable quarter of last year.
Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, stated: “The results of the second quarter reflect an improvement in our gross profit margin as compared to the comparable period last year. We are continuing our efforts to streamline our operations and expand our solution offerings. We anticipate that we will end year 2014 with a net profit on a non-GAAP basis.”
Eyal Cohen, BOS CFO, stated: “BOS’ financial position continues to strength. Loans were reduced by an additional $1 million during the first half of year 2014, resulting in a clear decrease in our financial expenses. We expect this trend to continue going forward. The devaluation of the dollar against the Israeli Shekel in the second quarter and first half of year 2014 as compared to comparable periods last year was the main reason for the increase in our operating expenses”.
BOS will host a conference call on Monday, August 25, 2014 at 10a.m. EDT – 5:00p.m. Israel Time. A question-and-answer session will follow management’s presentation.
