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.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
