RISHON LEZION, Israel, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd.
(the “Company” or “BOS”) (NASDAQ: BOSC; TASE: BOSC) reported today its results for the
first quarter ended March 31, 2007.
First – Quarter 2007 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues of $5.4 million, up 5.5% from $5.1M in the first quarter of 2006
  • Supply Chain solutions division revenues grew by 10.7% to $5.0 million from $4.5 million
    in the first quarter of 2006
  • Quarterly non–GAAP operating results show breakeven, with GAAP operating loss of
    $169 thousand.
  • Quarterly GAAP net loss of $326 thousand, or $(0.05) per share
  • Backlog increased by 7% to $6.5 million as of March 31, 2007 from $6.1 million in December

Revenues for the first quarter of 2007 amounted to $5.4 million, a 5.5% increase over the
revenues in the first quarter of 2006. Our backlog as of March 31, 2007 amounted to $6.5
million, reflecting a 7% increase over backlog of $6.1 million in December 31, 2006.
Operating results show breakeven on a non – GAAP basis (excluding option compensation
and amortization of intangible assets) in the first quarter of the year 2007 as compared to a non – GAAP operating income of $130 thousands in first quarter of the year 2006. Operating
loss in the first quarter of the year 2007, on a GAAP basis, was $169 thousand as compared to a loss of $43 thousand in first quarter of the year 2006.

Information with respect to stock-based compensation and amortization expenses for the first quarter of 2007 and 2006 is included in a table setting forth non-GAAP information that accompanies the condensed financial statements in this release.
Financial expenses in the first quarter of 2007 were $195 thousand, as compared to $78 thousand in the first quarter of 2006. The increase is attributed mainly to the raise of an additional $1.5 million of convertible note during August 2006. The principal balance of the convertible note as of March 2007 was $2.4 million, with conversion prices of $2.97 and $3.78. Conversion of the convertible note could significantly reduce the Company’s financial expenses. Net loss for the first quarter of 2007 amounted to $326 thousand (or $0.05 per share) as compared to net loss of $160 thousand (or $0.03 per share) in the first quarter of 2006 (excluding a gain of $297 thousand from discontinued operations).

Cash reserves, as of March 31, 2007, totalled $2.6 million. The Company’s balance sheet also shows short term loans of $5.1 million and long term loans of $1.9 million. During the first quarter of 2007, we converted $1.4 million of our short term bank loan into long term bank loans. In rights offering completed in April 2007, we raised gross proceeds of approximately $4.4 million, which strengthen our cash and equity position.
Edouard Cukierman, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said: “we are very pleased with the execution of BOS’s strategic plan and are looking forward to take the Company to the next level.” Shmuel Koren, BOS’s President and CEO, added:” There are clear signs that our organic growth engines are gaining momentum as reflected in the 11% growth we achieved in our Supply Chain Solutions division. We continued to win new non – Israeli customers, expanded distribution agreements and, in particular, managed to ramp up our RFID revenues to a new quarterly record of $420,000. With a much strengthened balance sheet following a successful raise of approximately $4.4 million through a rights offering, we are well positioned to continue to enhance our company’s growth and exploit lucrative opportunities in our space. “
