VirTra has received a new contract award under the five-year, single awardee indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, or IDIQ, contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The award covers the warranty and service of current systems and accessories in addition to the purchase of new technology with the 4K simulator systems, recoil kits, Threat-Fire devices, TASER training kits, training content and warranty and service plans. "This $1.4M order is continued validation of the value our systems provide to our customers, and we are appreciative of our long-standing relationship with the CBP," said Jason Mulcahy, General Manager of VirTra. "We are particularly excited about the potential for this order given the opportunity for a maximum order size of up to $24.5 million, which we believe demonstrates the significant market opportunity and the industry's need for VirTra's solutions that are the gold standard for effective simulation training."

VirTra has acquired a property in Chandler, Arizona that consists of approximately 4.3 acres and an industrial building with approximately 76,650 square feet. VirTra acquired the property for $10.8M, with $8.6M being financed through a mortgage loan and the remainder being paid in cash. The property gives VirTra a larger and more centralized facility to meet the anticipated growth in training simulator development and production, recoil kit development and production, training content creation and administrative functions. VirTra also expects the new building will provide greater operational efficiencies than its existing two leased locations in Tempe, Arizona with approximately 42,860 square feet in aggregate. VirTra plans to fully move into the new space within nine months or less and plans to sub-lease its current leased spaces once it has moved out. "As demand for VirTra's world-class training simulators in the law enforcement and military markets grows, it is critical that we scale our manufacturing and production capacity to meet not only the burgeoning demand today but the potential growth in the future as well," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Ferris. "This will be a state-of-the-art headquarters where we push the envelope of effective simulation training products for the benefit of our customers and stakeholders. The property will also allow us to centralize our operations and ultimately provide greater efficiencies across our entire organization."

Reports Q2 revenue $5.3M, consensus $3.79M. "We delivered strong financial results across the board in the second quarter, highlighted by a 90% increase in total revenue and a 99% increase in gross profit," said CEO Bob Ferris. "Continued market demand for our products drove profitable growth while enabling us to deliver another quarter of positive net income and strong adjusted EBITDA. Demand for VirTra's world-class training solutions from the law enforcement and military markets continues to build, demonstrated by the 6% sequential and 19% year-over-year increase in our backlog to a record $17M. Our strong financial performance in the second quarter also demonstrates our team's consistent operational excellence, as well as the value and effectiveness that VirTra's products provide to our end users and partners globally. As we look ahead, we believe that our business has never been better positioned to scale than it is today. Our pipeline is expanding, our sales are accelerating, and the need for effective training that enhances skills and saves lives is increasing. We believe that our financial and operational success in the first half of the year, coupled with the strategic initiatives we're executing, positions us to deliver accelerated and profitable growth in 2021 and beyond."

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. United Airlines (UAL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak thinking United's domestic leisure business will continue to recover, followed by an eventual recovery in other businesses. 2. Edison International (EIX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith saying California and the company are "facing a multitude of emerging risks." 3. First Solar (FSLR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst J.B. Lowe saying that, since April, the stock has flipped from lagging its module producer peers and the broader solar sector year-to-date to outperforming. 4. Sapiens (SPNS) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jackson Ader saying over the next few years, the analyst expects the company's growth to be in the high single digits, below expectations for peers, which he says are benefitting from a cloud transition among larger customers. 5. VirTra (VTSI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Maxim with analyst Allen Klee saying the favorable outlook seems to be already reflected in expectations as the firm's 2021 and 2022 revenue and EBITDA estimates are below consensus.
