Cemtrex’s Chairman and CEO, Saagar Govil, commented on the results, “Our Company continued to perform well during the global pandemic with only a modest decrease in revenue for the period while the entire world remained largely closed. Our Company remained fully operational, largely remotely, during the shutdown but many customers were closed and postponed purchasing during this June Quarter. For the nine-month period our year over year revenues are up 16% and we believe that as the global shutdowns wind down we will be able to see continued top line growth. Our Advanced Technology bookings for July were better on a YoY basis which gives us confidence in our overall outlook. Many of our customers who were shut down for the last several months are now resuming their operations and looking to pick up where they left off.”
“During the most recent quarter the Company continued its progress on its exciting product roadmap. We released several new products under our security technology brand, Vicon, including a Thermal Camera for assisting in the detection of COVID-19 symptoms, as well as a new line of cameras with on board AI based analytics technology. We remain on track for the release of our new SmartDesk later this year which we believe has strong potential due to the enormous need for a solution like ours in the home office segment.”
“The Company also received a major cash infusion of over $10 million from institutional investors during the period which has bolstered the balance sheet and fueled the Company for positive growth over the coming months. It has also provided the Company with cash to pursue strategic acquisition opportunities. With a strong cash position and many new product releases planned over the next few months we believe the next 18 months will be an exciting growth period for our Company. While uncertainties remain due to the COVID-19 pandemic we remain cautiously optimistic looking forward,” continued Mr. Govil.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures: Earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. In defining Non-GAAP EBITDA, the Company excludes the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation and other non-recurring items, such as R&D expenses and equity interest loss. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be evaluated in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Management utilizes this metric as a basis for evaluating our ongoing operations, and believes investors’ understanding of our performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for evaluating our ongoing results of operations, without the effects of interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization and other non-recurring expenses.
