Givens has been a member of the board of directors for VirTra since November 2020.

In 2010, he founded the U.S. company of Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim), and during his tenure as president of the company, he led the business to becoming one of the most widely deployed simulation products throughout all branches of the U.S. and allied military forces, culminating in the 2022 purchase of BISim by BAE Systems plc for $200 million.

Givens graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Florida Institute of Technology and proudly served in the United States Army.

“John is that rare talent who can only be described as a force of nature and I’m honored to share the CEO duties with him,” said Co-CEO and Chairman Bob Ferris. “From operational excellence to record-setting business development successes, John has an unmatched and proven track record in the military simulation marketplace. His experience scaling successful business operations similar to VirTra in the U.S. and internationally should greatly help us capitalize on the significant opportunities for VirTra in the law enforcement and military markets.”

Givens added, “I am honored that VirTra has given me the opportunity to be a part of the next identified growth cycle.  The team, products and services are world class industry leaders ready for scalability under our combined Co-CEO roles. I am proud to be part of a customer-focused and driven company whose expertise and systems are making a significant difference for those who protect us.”

With Givens’s appointment, VirTra’s independent board of director members will decrease to two and the Company plans to add an independent director in the near future.

There is plenty of uncertainty in law enforcement. Everything from situation outcomes to departmental budgets are subject to change based on factors out of our control. However, one thing that should never be uncertain is high-quality training. Proper training is what gives officers the tools to succeed and save lives in the field. Thanks to a new year’s worth of grants, departments can ensure their officers receive high-quality training, no matter the budget, community difficulties, or other factors.

High-quality training is oftentimes expensive because of its qualities.

All of these are essential in the classroom, but it can be difficult for some departments to afford. To make it easier to obtain this technology, VirTra is compiling and sharing grant opportunities that can allow your department to purchase and utilize VirTra’s high-quality training.

TEMPE, Ariz. — April 7, 2022 — VirTra, Inc. (NASDAQ: VTSI) (“VirTra”), a global provider of judgmental use of force training simulators, and firearms training simulators for the law enforcement and military markets, announced today that it received a written notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on April 5, 2022, stating that because VirTra has not yet filed its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”), it is no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of VirTra’s shares on Nasdaq. However, if VirTra fails to timely regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), its common stock will be subject to delisting from Nasdaq.

Under Nasdaq rules, VirTra has 60 calendar days to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules. If Nasdaq accepts the plan, then Nasdaq may grant VirTra up to 180 days from the prescribed due date for filing the Form 10-K (as extended pursuant to Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) to regain compliance. If Nasdaq does not accept the plan, then VirTra will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq hearings panel.

VirTra CEO and Chairman Bob Ferris commented, “As we discussed in our recent business update and conference call, our growth over the past two years has necessitated implementing a new ERP system, which, along with COVID-related personnel limitations, has delayed the completion of the audit. We believe these transitory challenges are growing pains for an expanding company that is strengthening its infrastructure to catch up with the success of its business. We are working diligently to complete the independent audit and file our Form 10-K with the SEC as soon as possible while working with Nasdaq to maintain our listing.”

Record Orders for 2021 of $32.7 Million, 37% Year-Over-Year Growth

 

TEMPE, Ariz. — March 31, 2022 — VirTra, Inc. (NASDAQ: VTSI) (“VirTra”), a global provider of judgmental use of force training simulators, and firearms training simulators for the law enforcement and military markets, provided a business update for the full year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Full Year 2021 Financial Highlights:

  • Sales orders received in 2021 totaled a record $32.7 million, an increase of 37% compared to 2020
  • Estimated cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2021 totaled $19.7 million

 

Recent Operational Highlights:

  • Awarded standing offer from Government of Canada as part of countrywide effort to standardize purchasing from one simulation provider for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as well as a wide range of other Canadian agencies.
  • Secured $2.7 million in follow-on orders from two foreign countries, demonstrating strong customer retention.
  • Formed teaming agreement with Action Target to collaborate on best-in-class solutions for both simulation training systems and live-fire shooting ranges.

 

Management Commentary

“While we are not yet able to release financial 2021 results, we are highly optimistic given the 37% year-over-year growth in orders to a record $32.7 million,” said Bob Ferris, chairman and CEO of VirTra. “The record level of orders continues to demonstrate the market acceptance of VirTra’s world-class training solutions as the gold standard in the industry. As the world continues to move away from COVID-related restrictions, we are having more opportunities to attend trade shows and meet with prospective customers to demonstrate VirTra’s innovative technology, new software features and scenarios, recoil kits, simulated CEWs (conducted energy weapon) and instructor training capabilities. These in-person demonstrations allow us to better showcase the advantages of VirTra’s solutions, which we believe will translate to continued growth. Recent wins including the $2.7 million in two foreign country orders and the standing offer we won for the Government of Canada represents further market share gains for VirTra and our more effective simulation training products adopted by governments globally.”

VirTra filed a Form 12b-25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to disclose that it will not be able to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 by its due date of March 31, 2022, and is not expected to do so within the 15-day extension period allowed by the Form. The delay is due primarily to the integration of a previously disclosed new company-wide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

“VirTra’s growth has not come without transitory challenges as we have needed additional time to complete the independent audit of our financial statements,” continued Ferris. “We have expanded our business tremendously over the past two years, which necessitated implementing a new ERP system, which, along with COVID-related personnel limitations, has delayed the completion of the audit, particularly related to inventory and revenue reporting. We are continuing to work closely with our independent auditor to complete the audit as soon as practical. Despite these delays, the fundamentals of our business remain very strong with growing sales and a healthy balance sheet with $19.7 million of cash at the end of 2021, providing us with sufficient resources to execute our growth strategy in 2022 and beyond.”

 

Conference Call

VirTra’s management will hold a conference call today (March 31, 2022) at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time (1:30 p.m. Pacific time) to discuss these results. VirTra’s chairman and CEO, Bob Ferris, and chief accounting officer, Marsha Foxx, will host the call, followed by a question-and-answer period.

Provides Update on its Independent Audit 

TEMPE, AZ – March 21, 2022 – VirTra, Inc. (NASDAQ: VTSI) (“VirTra”), a global provider of judgmental use of force training simulators, and firearms training simulators for the law enforcement and military markets, will hold a conference call on Thursday, March 31, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time (1:30 p.m. Pacific time) to discuss preliminary unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021. These preliminary unaudited financial results will be issued in a press release prior to the call. 

 VirTra plans to file a Form 12b-25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission requesting a 15-day extension to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. The Company does not anticipate having the audit of its financial statements completed in order to meet the March 31, 2022 deadline due primarily to the integration of a previously disclosed new company-wide ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system.  

 “We are working diligently to complete the independent audit and file our Form 10-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as soon as possible, but we do not anticipate meeting the March 31 filing deadline,” said VirTra CEO and Chairman Bob Ferris. “Our continued and anticipated growth necessitated the complete changeover of our production and accounting systems from three independent systems to a new ERP system to improve internal operating efficiency. The integration of this system has caused delays in completing the independent audit. Despite this delay, VirTra continues to be in a strong operating position and we expect 2021 financial results to be among the best in our history.” 

VirTra management will host the presentation, followed by a question-and-answer period. 

Date: Thursday, March 31, 2022

(NASDAQ: VTSI) (“VirTra”), a global provider of judgmental use of force training simulators, and firearms training simulators for the law enforcement and military markets, has received its first order attributable to the standing offer it was awarded from the Government in Canada in December 2021.

The initial order was placed by a Canadian law enforcement agency to receive multiple simulators and associated tools and accessories designed for simulator training. Part of the installation will also include hands-on training for system and hardware operation.

“We are thrilled to have received our first order from the Government of Canada and look forward to growing our footprint in the country through the standing offer,” said VirTra CEO and Chairman Bob Ferris. “VirTra is confident this roll-out will provide Canada with the most effective training on the planet, making them better prepared to handle difficult situations.”

All services and products ordered by the Canadian agency are expected to be delivered within the next three months.
