CEO Commentary
Jerry Chase, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bsquare, commented, "This was an important quarter for Bsquare, as we executed on a significant restructuring which positioned the Company for achieving our profitability objective which we currently expect in mid-2014. We remain focused on expanding our relationships with our existing world-class customers, and growing our presence within the Internet of Things ecosystem. I am increasingly excited about the opportunities before us. We have work to do, but I believe we are in a stronger competitive position as we end 2013 than we were at the beginning of the year, with the focus, opportunities and cost structure to deliver improved bottom-line results in 2014 and beyond."

"In my short time here at Bsquare, I have been impressed with the team and encouraged by the significant opportunities before the Company," continued Mr. Chase. "After productive discussions with the Board, and careful consideration, I am excited to formalize my position as chief executive officer and lead the Company in its efforts to increase shareholder value. What began as a short-term project to put the Company back on track has evolved into a long-term passion, as I join a solid team with the goal of taking Bsquare to the next level in its evolution."

Financial Commentary on Fourth Quarter Results (Comparison to Third Quarter Results)

  • The increase in third-party software sales, up $3.1 million or 17%, was due to a significant Adobe Flash sale and increased Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system sales;
  • The decrease in engineering services revenue, down $873,000 or 17%, was primarily due to the MyFord Touch program and, to a lesser extent, decreases at some of the Company's other larger customers;
  • The increase in third-party software margin, up 46% or six percentage points, was driven by the significant Adobe Flash sale;
  • The decrease in engineering services margin, down 59% or 10 percentage points, was driven primarily by an 8% decline in the Company's realized rate per hour; and
  • The decrease in operating expenses, down $273,000 or 6%, was driven by the cost reductions enacted this quarter and, to a lesser extent, lower marketing program costs.

Outlook
The Company currently has the following expectations for Q1 2014:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $20 million to $22 million; and
  • Cash and investments are projected to decline slightly from December 31, 2013.

(1) Adjusted EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure. Generally, a non-GAAP
financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance,
financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts
that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable
measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDAS
is defined as operating income (loss) before depreciation expense on fixed
assets and amortization expense (including impairment) on intangible assets,
and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDAS should not be
construed as a substitute for net income (loss) or net cash provided by
(used in) operating activities (all as determined in accordance with GAAP)
for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position
and cash flows, as Adjusted EBITDAS is not defined by GAAP. However, the
Company regards Adjusted EBITDAS as a complement to net income and other
GAAP financial performance measures, including an indirect measure of
operating cash flow.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
