Casino and Gaming Sales of $12.2 Million, up 87% on a Year-Over-Year Basis

FST Sales of $3.9 Million, up 14% on a Year-Over-Year Basis

HAMDEN, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or the “Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today reported preliminary results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

Our team continues to capitalize on opportunities in our core markets as they present themselves, and while the competitive environment in casino and gaming has started to normalize as predicted, we believe that we will see a sustainable, net market share gain in the long run,” said John Dillon, Chief Executive Officer of TransAct. “We have also been hard at work with our now restructured food service technology (“FST”) sales team, and are beginning to actively market and demonstrate our new BOHA! Terminal 2 to existing and potential customers. While these are multi-stage sales opportunities with lengthy cycle times, we are encouraged by our early results and pre-orders, and believe a solid foundation has been laid for future growth.”

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Net Sales: Net sales for the second quarter of 2023 were $19.9 million, up 58% compared to $12.6 million for the second quarter of 2022.
  • FST Recurring Revenue: FST recurring revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was $2.5 million, up 14% compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2022.
  • Gross Profit: Gross profit for the second quarter of 2023 was $10.9 million, resulting in gross margin of 54.5%, compared to gross profit of $5.4 million for the second quarter of 2022, which delivered a 43.0% gross margin.
  • Operating income (loss): Operating income for the second quarter of 2023 was $1.2 million, compared to operating loss of $(3.0) million for the second quarter of 2022.
  • Net income (loss): Net income for the second quarter of 2023 was $765 thousand, or $0.08 net income per diluted share, based on 10.0 million weighted average common shares outstanding. Net loss for the comparable 2022 period was $(2.4) million, or $(0.24) net loss per diluted share, based on 9.9 million weighted average common shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted net income (loss): Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2023 was $2.2 million, or $0.22 net income per diluted share. Adjusted net loss for the comparable 2022 period was $(2.4) million, or $(0.24) net loss per diluted share.

  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $3.2 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of $(2.5) million for the second quarter of 2022.

2023 Financial Outlook

  • Total Net Sales: The Company currently expects total net sales of between $71.5-73.5 million.
  • Total Adjusted EBITDA: The Company currently expects total adjusted EBITDA of between $8.0 -$8.5 million.

Our outlook for non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is presented only on a non-GAAP basis because not all of the information necessary for a quantitative reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is available without unreasonable effort, primarily due to uncertainties relating to the occurrence or amount of these adjustments that may arise in the future. If one or more of the currently unavailable items is applicable, some items could be material, individually or in the aggregate, to GAAP reported results.

TransAct is hosting a conference call and webcast today, August 9, 2023, beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the Company’s preliminary second quarter 2023 results and other matters.

Please call ten minutes prior to the presentation to ensure that you are connected.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

TransAct is providing certain non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes that these measures are helpful to investors and others in assessing the ongoing nature of what the Company’s management views as TransAct’s core operations. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide the Company with an understanding of one aspect of earnings before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide relevant and useful information to an investor evaluating the Company’s operating performance because these measures are: (i) widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items that do not reflect the Company’s ongoing operations and are excluded from the calculation of such measure; (ii) used as financial measurements by lenders and other parties to evaluate creditworthiness; and (iii) used by the Company’s management for various purposes including strategic planning and forecasting and assessing financial performance. Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share provide the Company with an understanding of the results of the primary operations of the business by excluding the effects of special items (for example, the $1.5 million severance charge related to the resignation of the Company’s former CEO) that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of the Company’s operations. The Company uses these measures to evaluate period-over-period operating performance because the Company believes this provides a more comparable measure of the Company’s continuing business, as these measures adjust for the special items that are not reflective of the normal results of the business. The presentation of this non-GAAP information is not considered superior to or a substitute for, and should be read in conjunction with, the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. A reconciliation of EBITDA to net income (loss), the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and is adjusted for (1) share-based compensation and (2) the $1.5 million severance charge related to the resignation of the Company’s former CEO. The Company adjusts EBITDA for share-based compensation because the Company considers share-based compensation to be a non-cash expense similar to depreciation and amortization. The Company also adjustes for the severance charge related to the resignation of the Company’s former CEO because the Company believes this charge does not reflect the ordinary earnings of the Company’s operations. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.

Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for the $1.5 million severance charge related to the resignation of the Company’s former CEO. A reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) to net income (loss), the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.

Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share is defined as adjusted net income (loss) divided by diluted shares outstanding. A reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share to net income (loss) per diluted share, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found attached to this release.

The Company has prepared the preliminary financial information set forth below on a materially consistent basis with its historical financial information and in good faith based upon its internal reporting as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023. This financial information is preliminary and is thus inherently uncertain and subject to change as the Company finalizes its financial results and related review for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023. During the course of the preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company may identify items that could cause its final reported results to be materially different from the preliminary financial information set forth above. As a result, there can be no assurance that the Company’s final results for this period will not differ from the preliminary financial information.

This preliminary financial information should not be viewed as a substitute for full financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, this preliminary financial information is not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for any future period.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements included in this press release may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are any statements other than statements of historical fact. Forward-looking statements represent current views about possible future events and are often identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, such as “may”, “will”, “expect”, “intend”, “estimate”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “project”, “plan”, “design” or “continue”, or the negative thereof, or other similar words. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions. In the event that one or more of such risks or uncertainties materialize, or one or more underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Important factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: the adverse effects of current economic conditions, whether due to the COVID-19 pandemic or otherwise, on our business, operations, financial condition, results of operations and capital resources, difficulties or delays in manufacturing or delivery of inventory or other supply chain disruptions, inflation and the Russia/Ukraine conflict, an inability of our customers to make payments on time or at all, diversion of management attention, a possible future reduction in the value of goodwill or other intangible assets, inadequate manufacturing capacity or a shortfall or excess of inventory as a result of difficulty in predicting manufacturing requirements due to volatile economic conditions, price increases or decreased availability of component parts or raw materials, exchange rate fluctuations, volatility of and decreases in trading prices of our common stock and the availability of needed financing on acceptable terms or at all; our ability to successfully develop new products that garner customer acceptance and generate sales, both domestically and internationally, in the face of substantial competition; our reliance on an unrelated third party to develop, maintain and host certain web-based food service application software and develop and maintain selected components of our downloadable software applications pursuant to a non-exclusive license agreement, and the risk that interruptions in our relationship with that third party could materially impair our ability to provide services to our food service technology customers on a timely basis or at all and could require substantial expenditures to find or develop alternative software products; our ability to successfully transition our business into the food service technology market; risks associated with potential future acquisitions; general economic conditions; our dependence on contract manufacturers for the assembly of a large portion of our products in Asia; our dependence on significant suppliers; our ability to recruit and retain quality employees as the Company grows; our dependence on third parties for sales outside the United States; our dependence on technology licenses from third parties; marketplace acceptance of new products; risks associated with foreign operations; the availability of third-party components at reasonable prices; price wars, supply chain disruptions or other significant pricing pressures affecting the Company’s products in the United States or abroad; increased product costs or reduced customer demand for our products due to changes in U.S. policy that may result in trade wars or tariffs; our ability to protect intellectual property; and other risk factors detailed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Actual results may differ materially from those discussed in, or implied by, the forward-looking statements. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this release. We undertake no obligation to publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or other factors, except where we are expressly required to do so by applicable law.
