HASCO Medical Reports Record First Quarter 2014 Results

Q1 2014 Total Net Revenues up 38% to Record $20.7 Million, Driving Net Income of $194,000

ADDISON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: HASC), a leading provider of handicap-accessible vans, parts and service, reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Q1 2014 Financial and Operational Highlights

  • Revenues up 38% to a record $20.7 million, marking five consecutive quarters of record revenue

  • Gross margin up 176 basis points to 25.4%

  • Net income of $194,000 vs. a net loss of $199,000 in same year-ago quarter

  • Delivered a record number of taxi orders totaling more than 100, which were sold primarily through the company's Ride-Away® Commercial Taxi location in NYC

Q1 2014 Financial Summary
Net revenues for the first quarter of 2014 totaled a record $20.7 million, up 38% from $15.0 million in the same year-ago quarter. The improvement was primarily due to the increase in private-pay business for van sales, as well as the contribution of Auto Mobility Sales that the company acquired last September. Service and other revenue totaled $3.9 million, up 36% from the same year-ago quarter.

Gross profit was a record $5.3 million or 25.4% of total net revenues, compared to $3.5 million or 23.7% of total net revenues in the same year-ago quarter. The increase is primarily due to the greater buying power and better utilization of capacity in service.

Net income totaled $194,000, as compared to net loss of $199,000 in the same year-ago quarter.

Management Commentary
"Our record first quarter results reflects strong sales of handicap accessible vehicles across all our East Coast dealerships," said Hal Compton, CEO of HASCO Medical. "We expect this sales momentum to be maintained with the help of two new dealerships we're planning to open in the Fall with the support of major brands like BraunAbility and VMI. As we look to the remainder of 2014, we expect our excellent customer service, high-quality products and custom solutions, and the strong tailwinds of a growing market to drive another record year."

2014 Outlook
HASCO Medical expects 2014 total net revenues to range between $75 million and $85 million, which represents an increase of 3% to 17%. The company also expects gross margin to range between 21% to 23%. The company also expects positive net income in 2014.

However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
