Management Comments

Commenting on the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, Anthony Ambrose, President and CEO of Data I/O Corporation, said, “We are pleased to return to profitability in the third quarter. Performance in the quarter was driven by the recovery in the automotive electronics market, solid delivery performance of our factories in challenging conditions, and continued strength in adapters. Revenues increased 13% in the third quarter as compared to the prior year, and are up 27% year-to-date as compared to the same period in 2020.

“Bookings of $19.2 million through the first nine months of the year increased 30% over the same period of the prior year. Third quarter bookings of $5 million were down from $8.9 million in the second quarter, which we believe reflects a pull in of orders from the third quarter into the second quarter, and pushouts from customers who had not yet secured adequate silicon supply for their planned capacity expansion.

“Adapter bookings in the third quarter of 2021 remained strong. Our increasing installed base of PSV machines provide recurring and consumable revenues which supplement our capital equipment sales. Additionally, we have seen customers qualifying second source designs which require new adapters from Data I/O. We have also seen increased software and service contract bookings year-to-date, which will increase revenue as it is recognized.

“Our resilient supply chain delivered well in the third quarter. Our factories in Redmond and Shanghai were able to ship despite global supply shortages, shipping issues, and ongoing concerns with COVID-19 in many customer locations. Our strategy to extend our purchase commitments for the PSV family late last year has paid dividends for us and our customers. We are maintaining lead times on the PSV family and are ready to respond to the next uptick in orders. The industry sees a decade of 10-15% long term growth rate in silicon for the automotive electronics market, and Data I/O is extremely well positioned in this space with about 60% of our sales to the automotive industry. While we expect some short-term turbulence in demand as silicon remains constrained, we are investing for this long-term growth trend.

“We believe the continued execution of our operational and growth strategies has positioned Data I/O as the most resilient market leader with unparalleled secure programming technologies and the strongest balance sheet. As the automotive industry operating environment returns to more normal times, we expect to benefit from the resurgence of demand for both machines and consumables with the increase in automotive demand. This should enable the Company to demonstrate its full earnings and cash flow leverage.”

Financial Results

Net sales in the third quarter of 2021 were $6.7 million, up 13% as compared with $5.9 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase from the prior year period primarily reflects higher overall demand for equipment, higher adapter usage and growing installed base of systems throughout the world. Recurring and consumable revenues which includes adapter sales represented $2.7 million or 39% of total revenues in the third quarter 2021, as compared with $2.1 million or 35% of the lower third quarter 2020 total.

Third quarter 2021 bookings were $5.0 million, down from $5.6 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Backlog at September 30, 2021 was approximately $3.3 million, down from $5.0 million at June 30, 2021 and up from $2.8 million at September 30, 2020.

Gross margin as a percentage of sales was 60.7% in the third quarter of 2021, as compared to 55.1% in the same period of the prior year. The difference in gross margin as a percentage of sales primarily reflects the impact of higher sales volume on relatively fixed costs, improved factory variances and channel mix in the 2021 period.

Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2021 were $3.9 million, as compared to operating expenses of $3.4 million in the 2020 period. Data I/O’s R&D expenses were $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2021 and $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. Selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2021 increased by approximately $406,000 from the prior year period primarily due to higher sales commissions associated with the increased demand for programming equipment, as well as higher incentive compensation.

Net income in the third quarter of 2021 was $12,000, or $0.00 per share, compared with a net loss of ($707,000), or ($0.09) per share, for the third quarter of 2020. Included in net loss are foreign currency transaction losses of ($26,000) for the 2021 period and ($271,000) for the third quarter of 2020.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”), which excludes equity compensation, was $564,000 in the third quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $169,000 in the third quarter of 2020.

Data I/O’s financial condition remained strong with cash of $14.2 million at September 30, 2021, up from $13.0 million at June 30, 2021. The difference in the cash balance from the end of the second quarter primarily reflects the shift in working capital from accrued expenses and collection of receivables, partially offset by increased inventory related to the continued and anticipated improvement in market conditions. Data I/O had net working capital of $18.5 million at September 30, 2021, up from $18.2 million at June 30, 2021, and $18.1 million at December 31, 2020, and continues to have no debt.
