Second Quarter 2023 Business Highlights:

Mr. Fabien Haubert, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Senstar Technologies, stated, "The second quarter featured strong growth from the key regions that we focus on, EMEA and the U.S. This growth was offset by the absence of a one-off project in Asia that was booked in last year's second quarter making for a challenging year-over-year comparison and masking the progress we are making in key regions."

Mr. Haubert continued, "Senstar remains committed to its primary objective to expand market share within our four high-value verticals in key geographic regions. The upward trajectory of revenue within these verticals year-to-date fuels our enthusiasm, particularly given the scalability of our business model. Our gross margin remains a healthy 60%, demonstrating our industry leadership. Noteworthy is our ability to deliver positive operating income and EBITDA during the quarter despite a decline in year-over-year revenue. As we navigate through challenges and successes alike, Senstar is growing in key areas and positioning for long-term value creation."

Second Quarter 2023 Results Summary

Revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was $8.4 million, a decrease of 7.5% compared with $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2022. Second quarter gross profit was $5.1 million, or 60.7% of revenue, compared with $5.5 million, or 60.0% of revenue, in the year ago quarter. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to a shift in the mix of products sold during the quarter.

Operating expenses were $5.0 million, a decrease of 6.1% compared to the prior year's second quarter operating expenses of $5.4 million. The decrease in operating expenses is primarily attributable to a decrease in general and administrative expenses, which was partially offset by an increase in selling and marketing expenses, compared to the 2022 period.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2023 was $83,000 compared to $107,000 in the year-ago period.

Financial expense was ($74,000) compared to ($109,000) in the second quarter last year.

Net loss in the second quarter of 2023 was ($211,000) or ($0.01) per share versus net income of $164,000, or $0.01 per share in the second quarter of last year.

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2023 was $290,000 versus $460,000 in the second quarter of 2022.

The Company had cash and cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits and restricted deposits of $11.9 million, or $0.51 per share, as of June 30, 2023, compared with $15.0 million, or $0.65 per share, at December 31, 2022.
