Rishon Lezion, Israel — October 22, 2014 — B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. (“BOS”) (NASDAQ: BOSC), today announced that its RFID & Mobile division in cooperation with Live in Clean City  Ltd. (“Clean City”), has successfully completed the first implementation of an RFID based system for tracking garbage trucks (“RFID System”).

Clean City is a leading provider of technological solutions for waste management in municipalities in Israel. By using an RFID System, waste can be identified and tracked through the entire waste chain. RFID tags are attached to waste containers and the trucks are equipped with RFID readers thereby improving the verification of pickups and tracking the number of times a container is used for collection.  The RFID System was integrated at the Modiin municipality in Israel.

Mr. Yizhak Gazit, CEO of Clean City stated: “Waste management is a growing industry. It’s also an industry that has turned to technology to help manage many aspects of its day to day operation. RFID has been used by municipalities outside of Israel, to increase efficiency of waste management. We teamed up with BOS’ RFID and Mobile division due to its long experience in RFID based systems. Together with BOS, we plan to offer to all the major municipalities in Israel an RFID System for waste management.”

Mr. Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, stated: “Waste containers come in many forms, materials and sizes, but they are all subject to harsh environments and rough handling. Being outdoors, waste containers are exposed to cold wet, heat and machine abuse. Only RFID tags can withstand such conditions and continue to function throughout the life cycle of these containers and allow constant monitoring. Together with Clean City, we are able to offer municipalities a one stop shop for waste management solutions. I am confident that this collaboration has a promising future”.About BOS

*Ladies and gentleman, Thank you for standing by.   The conference will begin shortly.
B.O.S.

Ve’idan Conference Coordinator:
Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by.
Welcome to the BOS 1st  Quarter of year 2013 results conference call.
All participants are at present in listen-only mode.   Following management’s formal presentation instructions will be given for the question and answer session.  
For operator assistance during the conference, please press *0.
As a reminder, this conference call is being recorded, and will be available on the BOS website as of tomorrow.

I would like to remind everyone that this conference call may contain projections or other forward-looking statements regarding future events or the future performance of the Company.   These statements are only predictions and may change as time passes.   B.O.S. does not assume any obligation to update that information.   Actual events or results may differ materially from those projected, including as a result of changing industry and market trends, reduced demand for our products, the timely development of our new products and their adoption by the market, increased competition in the industry and price reductions, as well as due to risks identified in the documents filed by the Company with the SEC.”

I would now like to hand over the call to Mr. Yuval Viner, CEO of the company.  
Go ahead Yuval.
Thank you and good morning to all our listeners in the US and good afternoon to those who are joining us from Israel and Europe.

In recent years, we have worked in a very challenging economic environment, both globally and locally. In 2010, following the appointment of BOS’ new management, we took a strategic decision  to strengthen BOS’ financial condition by: (a) reducing debt, (b) reducing business risks by closing non profitable product lines; and (c)  making selective M&A activities, all with the objective of  becoming profitable (on a non GAAP basis).

Looking back, we believe that we have made good progress on these goals, as Eyal will provide additional  detail shortly.

Today we feel much more comfortable to start the second step of our plan, which is growing our business. These days we are working intensively on our plan for 2014, which we hope will gradually set BOS on a path of growth and will positively affect our outlook for 2014.  Our outlook for 2013 remains to end the year with a profit on a NON GAAP basis.

Going back to the first quarter results:
The results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 reflect a bottom line improvement over the comparable period of last year, primarily as a result of an increase in the RFID and mobile division’s gross profit and a decrease in financial expenses. However, the revenues and gross margin of the supply chain division were lower than the comparable period of last year, which adversely affected the results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. On the positive side, the supply chain division backlog is relatively high, and amounted to $8 million. In addition, the supply chain division has recently entered into an agreement with a leading aircraft manufacturer. I am confident that the upcoming quarters of the supply chain division will generate higher revenues and an improved gross profit, which could positively impact the financial results of BOS.

Now, I would like to turn over the call to Eyal Cohen.

Eyal Cohen:

Thank you Yuval.
Since  2009, our loans  were reduced from $15m to $8m in year 2012, and we will continue to reduce our loans  in 2013.

Since 2010, we are profitable on a NON GAAP basis, excluding a relatively minor loss in year 2011.As Yuval Mentioned before we will end year 2013 with a profit on a NON GAAP basis.

As a result of the reduction in our loans and the improved results, the ratio of loans’ to EBITDA was significantly reduced from 25 years in 2011 down to 13 years in 2012. We plan to continue to improve this ratio in year 2013.

This completes the financial review.  
Thank you.

B.O.S Announces Financial Results for Third Quarter of 2011

RISHON LEZION, Israel, November 30, 2011 (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 global enterprises, today reported its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.


On a GAAP basis, the Company had a net loss of $826,000, for the three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to net income of $10,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2010 (and a net loss of $324,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2011.) The Company had a net loss of $1,113,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to net income of $25,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2010.

On a non GAAP basis, the Company had a net loss of $381,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to net income of $288,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The Company had a net loss of $20,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to net income of $869,000 in the nine months of 2010.
The increase in loss on a GAAP basis in the third quarter resulted mainly from: (a) a reduction in the gross margin of the Supply Chain division (from 18.9% to 15%, or $200,000) due to increased competition, and  (b) a $150,000 loss related to currency hedging contracts.  The gross margin of our RFID & Mobile Solutions division increased from 21% in the second quarter to 23% in the third quarter, due to improved results of the software activity.

Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, stated: “We are continuing to invest in our software solutions, which are our strategic growth engine for the coming years. In the recent months we have made significant progress toward our goal to turn our software activity into a profitable business.

We have implemented cost reductions, which we expect will lower our expenses by $100,000 in the fourth quarter of 2011, and by an additional $70,000 in the first quarter of 2012. The cost reductions include non-cash savings in the amount of $20,000 per quarter, due to the voluntary waiver by our senior management of all of its unvested options, reflecting management’s commitment to the Company’s profitability targets.

     In light of the financial results, we are updating our forecast for 2011, as follows:
• Revenue forecast remains unchanged: we expect revenues to exceed $33 million.
• EBITDA forecast is reduced to $0.8 million, from our latest forecast of $1.4 million.
• Net profit, on a non-GAAP basis, will reflect a minor loss.”
Eyal Cohen, BOS CFO, said: “The previously announced conversion of our debt at a premium of 36% over the current share price, which is subject to shareholders’ approval, will result in: (a) a reduction in our short term liabilities by $3 million, (b) an increase in our equity by $2.5 million, (c) a reduction in our annual finance expense that amounted to $360,000 in the first nine months of 2011, and (d) an expected $1.5 million non cash expense in the fourth quarter of 2011, due to the reduced conversion share price.”
 Mr. Cohen added: “The cost reductions and the conversion will lower our expenses by approximately $1 million in 2012, and allow us to allocate additional funds for further development of our business.”

BOS will host a conference call on Thursday, December 1, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time / 5:00 p.m. Israel Time. A question-and-answer session will follow management’s presentation.

B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Selected for Data Collection and Traceability Project by Plasan

Better Online Solutions Ltd. (“BOS”) (NASDAQ: BOSC) today announced that it has been selected by Plasan Sasa Ltd., a preferred armor supplier for the Israeli Defense Forces and an approved armor protection supplier to Ministries of Defense around the world, for a data collection optimization project.

The objective of the project is to optimize data collection on the production floor and to enhance the traceability of parts and final products for Plasan, which develops, manufactures and assembles Add-On Armor Kits for tactical wheeled vehicles, fixed and rotary wing aircraft, personal protection and civilian armor vehicles.

The solution will be based on BOS’ proprietary BOS ID software platform, as well as various mobile terminals, scanners, and other hardware, and will communicate with Plasan’s PLC (programmable logic controller) system, as well as with its Oracle-based ERP system.

“We decided to work with BOS because we liked the flexibility of its software platform, which will improve our ability to make adaptations quickly and without the need for additional software programming or development,” said Chen Cohen, VP Operations at Plasan. “This project will enable us to achieve improved visibility in our supply chain, thereby better serving our customers worldwide.”

“We are thrilled to have been selected by Plasan, a market leader in its industry, for this important data collection project. The project is expected to be fully deployed by the end of 2011,” said Yuval Viner, BOS CEO. “Although the project will not have a significant effect on our 2010 financial results, it does point to the potential of our BOS ID platform in Israel and abroad, and we view it as the beginning of a long-term relationship with Plasan.”

B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Supplies Israel’s Home Front Command with Multi-function Rugged Handheld Computers for Gas Mask Distribution Effort

Rishon Letzion, Israel — May 3, 2010 —B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. (“BOS”) (NASDAQ: BOSC), today announced the successful implementation and delivery of ruggedized Pocket PC/scanner/phone/GPS devices to Israel’s Home Front Command, for use in the massive effort to distribute new gas masks to every household, which began last month.

BOS expects revenues from the transaction to exceed $150,000.


The Israel Postal Company is distributing the new gas mask kits on behalf of the Home Front Command, and is using the M-3 mobile Hebrew-enabled handheld terminals supplied by BOS to track the kits at distribution centers throughout the country, as well as through its home delivery service. Families have the option of either collecting their gas masks for free at a branch of the Postal Company, or paying 25 NIS per household for a representative to make a home visit and fit gas masks on each person who lives in the household.

In addition to supplying the M3 Mobile terminals and accessories, BOS advised the Home Front Command on mobile and cellular data collection applications for the distribution effort. BOS continues to provide technological support to the IDF unit responsible for the technological aspects of the project.

Each gas mask kit distributed or collected – whether at the distribution centers or delivered to individual households – has a bar code that will be read by the M3 Mobile handheld terminals. Data on individual gas masks is then sent to the central server, enabling the Home Front Command to have a complete picture of which kit has gone to which household.

“We are very pleased to be part of this important national security effort,” said Yuval Viner, BOS CEO. “The data collected from our devices will provide the Home Front Command with necessary tools to manage and optimize the distribution of the gas masks.”
