  • Q3 2021 Gross margin was 66% compared to 52% for Q3 2020 and 61% for Q2 2021.

"We are pleased to report quarter over quarter improvements in cash, revenues, bookings, backlog, EBITDA and net profit," stated Richard Yoon, Chief Executive Officer. "The company has made great strides this past quarter in driving revenue growth while also increasing gross margin to 66%, a dramatic improvement over the 52% achieved in the same quarter last year. I am extremely encouraged by the current market conditions and the increase  in deployments from our customer base. Coming out of the softness in the business caused by the COVID pandemic, we are seeing more customers ramping up their digital transformation plans, which we expect to be a key driver of product demand in the coming quarters".

Financial and Business Review

Gross margin of 66% in Q3 2021 was up 5 percentage points from Q2 2021 and up substantially from 52% in Q3 2020. The changes are primarily due to changes in sales mix.

Total operating expenses for Q3 2021 were $3.9 million, up 12% from $3.5 million in Q3 2020 and flat compared to Q2 2021. The year-over-year increase was due primarily to increased expenses in R&D related to new product development as well as increased sales costs associated with the increase in gross profit.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for Q3 2021 was $0.2 million, an improvement of $0.5 million and $0.2 million compared to Q2 2021 and Q3 2020 respectively.

Net loss improved from $0.7 million  in Q2 2021 and $0.4 million in  Q3 2020 to $0.1 million  in Q3 2021.
