Management Commentary:

“We are in the throes of a 100-year pandemic that has negatively impacted the finances of our healthcare customer base. As such, software product sales were slow in the second quarter, as this was the first full quarter impacted by the pandemic. The majority of our healthcare customer base continued to struggle with the challenges presented by COVID-19,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer. “However, on a positive note, while hospitals are focusing their efforts on the current crisis, surveys are showing that by the end of the second quarter hospitals were back to more than a third of their pre-COVID-19 elective volumes and by the end of the year hospitals expect to be back to more than three-quarters of those volumes, with full recovery sometime in 2021,” continued Kelly. “While we did not lose a lot of deals, many were pushed back due to the pandemic, including our first significant Spok Go® deal, which was booked in July. The same was true with the installation of our backlog from prior bookings. As hospitals begin to open back up, we expect to see these trends improve. In the meantime, Spok continues to demonstrate a stable revenue base, as nearly 86 percent of our revenues in the second quarter were recurring in nature, coming from either our legacy wireless business or software maintenance contracts. This, combined with disciplined expense control, has allowed us to post profitable results. And, we did this while continue to invest in and develop our cloud native platform, Spok Go.  Spok provides a critical function, which we believe will become even more important in this environment. Spok’s clinical communications platform provides hospitals with a system of action, not just of record, delivering reliable communications and clinical information, including clinical test results, to care teams when and where it matters most to improve patient outcomes.”

In the second quarter of 2020, Spok returned $2.4 million in capital to stockholders, in the form of its regular quarterly dividend. “During the quarter, we took immediate steps to position our operations to a positive free cash flow basis through a combination of furlough and other cost savings initiatives.  As a result, we were able to generate increased levels of net income and EBITDA. We are focused on running positive EBITDA and Spok remains committed to paying our regular quarterly dividend. We believe we will be able to achieve this while continuing to support our Spok Care Connect® platform and in the near term, investing in the evolution of our cloud-native and integrated communication platform, Spok Go.

Business Outlook:

Michael W. Wallace, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, said: “Expense management and strong financial discipline have always been critical in balancing the short and long-term components of our business and that was especially so in the second quarter, given the impacts of COVID-19. In the second quarter, GAAP operating expenses were down nearly 22% from prior year levels, with improvements in all expense categories driven by furloughs, the CARES Act credits, and including a $3.6 million benefit versus 2019 due to capitalization of software costs required in 2020.  Spok’s balance sheet remains strong, with a cash, cash equivalents and short-term investment balance of $70.9 million at June 30, 2020.”

Commenting on the Company’s previously provided financial guidance for 2020, Wallace noted: “Spok has been focused on continuing to understand the impact of the pandemic on our business, particularly given the impact of COVID-19 on the roll-out of our Spok Go software business. Because of the fluid nature of the situation, we, like many of our peer public companies, believe that it is most prudent to continue to suspend our practice of providing annual guidance for revenues and expenses at this time. We look forward to returning to our normal guidance format after the crisis is over.

(b) EBITDA or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and accretion is a non-GAAP measure and is presented for analytical purposes only. Management and the Board of Directors rely on EBITDA for purposes of determining the Company’s capital allocation policies. EBITDA is also the starting point for the calculation of operating cash flow for purposes of determining whether management has achieved certain performance objectives in the Company’s short-term and long-term incentive plans.
(c) An adjustment to cost of revenue identified in the fourth quarter of 2018 of $771 has been reflected in this table as a reduction of Net (loss) income of $166, $196, $359, and $771 in the first, second, third, and fourth quarters respectively.
(d) Adjusted operating expenses is a non-GAAP measure and is presented for analytical purposes only. Management and the Board of Directors rely on adjusted operating expenses for purposes of assessing our core operating results based on expenses incurred within a period that directly drive operating income in that period. Management adjusts for certain items because we do not regard these costs as reflective of normal costs related to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course. In general, these items possess one or more of the following characteristics; non-cash expenses, factors outside of our control, items that are non-operational in nature, and unusual items not expected to occur in the normal course of business.
