TEMPE, AZ–(Marketwired – Nov 14, 2014) – VirTra Systems (PINKSHEETS: VTSI), a leading provider of firearms simulators to military, law enforcement agencies and other organizations, today announced the release of its 2014 third quarter financial statements. The financial statements are available on VirTra’s website and here.
Mark Skidmore, VirTra’s Vice President & Chief Accounting Officer, said, “The profitable third quarter demonstrates the variability in recognized revenue from quarter to quarter and is the historical nature of VirTra Systems’ business to date. However, the Company’s nearly $11 million in record sales/purchase orders booked in the third quarter positions the Company’s revenue to be strong over the next two to three quarters.”
Third Quarter 2014 Financial Summary:
- Net Sales for the quarter decreased 20% to $2.2 million compared to $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2013. The main reason for this difference is large multi-year projects with milestones in the first three quarters of 2013, but fewer milestones for 2014. These variations are reduced when reviewing a one year period versus a quarterly period.
- Gross margin for the quarter was 49% of Net Sales, compared to 68% last year. The drivers for the decrease, similar to second quarter 2014, are primarily due to client paid customization projects which means some salaries were recorded in Cost of Products Sold, instead of in Sales, General and Administrative (SG&A). In addition, the lower Net Sales for the quarter contributed to this difference.
- SG&A expenses of $1.0 million are level with third quarter 2013. As a percent of revenue, SG&A was 47% compared to 37% in third quarter 2013. The percentage increase is mainly the result of comparing SG&A to lower Net Sales. In addition, a portion of SG&A resources were assigned to client paid customization projects.
- Income from operations decreased $0.8 million to $0.1 million, compared to income of $0.8 million in third quarter 2013. This decrease was largely due to higher Net Sales in 2013 as compared to 2014.
- Through September 30, 2014, the Company used $0.8 million in cash from operating activities to fulfill orders secured by deposits. Cash and cash equivalents were $1.5 million, down from $1.8 million at third quarter 2013.
- The Company has no outstanding balance due on its line of credit as of September 30, 2014.
Bob Ferris, Chief Executive Officer of VirTra, commented, “One of VirTra’s key objectives for 2014 was to increase market penetration by expansion of our national footprint with military and law enforcement agencies in the United States, in addition to investing in development of the Company’s international presence. I am incredibly proud of our talented employees’ work and steadfast dedication to our stakeholders that enabled us to meet those goals through the first nine months of operations. The Company’s recent one quarter performance of nearly $11 million of purchase orders is validation of VirTra’s ability to expand our position in the marketplace and we look forward to delivering on those orders in the coming quarters.”
