BIO-key(R) International, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

First Half 2014 Sales Growth of 44%, Strong Q3 Visibility

(OTCQB: BKYI), a leader in fingerprint biometric identification technologies, cloud-based mobile credentialing and identity verification solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2014, including strong visibility for Q3 2014.

Three Month Comparison

Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $402,788, compared to Q2'13 revenue of $422,257, a decrease of approximately 5%. Sales fell largely as a result of lower license sales and expected orders slipping out beyond Q2. "Despite disappointing Q2 sales, our pipeline continues to grow and our visibility of large opportunities continues to improve," stated Michael DePasquale, BIO-key Chairman and CEO. "In Q1, we reiterated the variable nature of our business and the potential impact to individual quarterly results. Thus, it's important to note that our sales for the first half of 2014 grew 44% year over year and our booked sales, thus far, for Q3'14 have already substantially exceeded total Q3'13 sales. Therefore we remain confident 2014 should represent a breakout year for BIO-key."

Q2'14 gross margin decreased to 60% from 78% in Q2'13. Operating expenses for Q2'14 increased 58%, quarter over quarter, to $1,366,000 from approximately $867,000 in Q2'13. Net loss for Q2'14 was ($1,026,286), which increased from Q2'13 net loss of ($554,831). Q2'14 EPS was ($0.01) versus Q2'13 EPS of ($0.01). Mr. DePasquale continued, "As planned, we invested in sales and marketing, hiring new sales executives and developing new marketing and lead generation programs to grow our pipeline. We hired or contracted engineering resources to support the multitude of new opportunities in our pipeline and we are starting to see the results of these investments and efforts."

Six Month Comparison

Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $1,770,311, compared to the first half of 2013 revenue of $1,226,900, an increase of approximately 44%.

First half 2014 gross margin increased to 84% from 83% in first half 2013. Operating expenses for the first half 2014 increased 45%, year over year, to $2,710,000 from approximately $1,862,000 in the first half 2013.

The Company reported cash, cash equivalents, and accounts receivables of $902,578 as of June 30, 2014, as compared to $1.9 million at March 31, 2014. Mr. DePasquale concluded, "With our pipeline growing so quickly, we are supporting more opportunities that we expect to turn into sales. We need to stay the course and will continue to manage our resources as efficiently as possible with higher sales in sight."

@ThingsExpo Stories
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
There will be 150 billion connected devices by 2020. New digital businesses have already disrupted value chains across every industry. APIs are at the center of the digital business.
