CalAmp Reports Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results


OXNARD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 -- CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today reported results for its first quarter ended May 31, 2013. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Consolidated first quarter revenue of $53.7 million, up 22.5% compared to the first quarter last year with Wireless Datacom revenue up 29% over prior year first quarter to $40.9 million.
  • First quarter GAAP net income of $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to $4.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share for the first quarter last year.
  • Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $5.6 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the same period last year.
  • Net cash provided by operations for the first quarter of $5.8 million, and total cash balance at May 31, 2013 of $24.5 million.

Commenting on the first quarter results, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We're off to a strong start in fiscal 2014. In the first quarter, our Wireless Datacom segment revenue increased 29% year-over-year driven by continued momentum from our Mobile Resource Management (MRM) products and contributions from our Wireless Matrix acquisition that was completed at the beginning of the first quarter. The Wireless Datacom gross margin improved to 39.1% due mainly to higher margin subscription revenue from our Wireless Matrix acquisition. In addition, rapid progress on the integration front during the first quarter resulted in lower than expected operating expenses from the acquired operations of Wireless Matrix. In our Satellite segment, we saw improving margins along with some growth resulting in a meaningful impact to our bottom line results. We believe our unique hardware, software and service portfolio, supported by expanding channel partnerships with global reach, has given us the leverage to win an increasing share of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) market opportunities as they emerge."

Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results
Total revenue for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $53.7 million compared to $43.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of 22.5%. Wireless Datacom revenue increased to $40.9 million from $31.7 million in the same period last year, and Satellite revenue was $12.9 million compared to $12.2 million in the first quarter last year.

Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $18.5 million, an increase of $4.8 million over the same quarter last year that was primarily driven by higher revenue. The consolidated gross margin was 34.4% in the fiscal 2014 first quarter, up from 31.2% in the first quarter last year. The increase in consolidated gross margin reflects the higher proportion of total revenues represented by the Wireless Datacom segment in fiscal 2014 versus the prior year and, within Wireless Datacom, the shift in revenue mix toward higher margin subscription-based revenues associated with the Wireless Matrix acquisition.

GAAP net income for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net income of $4.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the first quarter of last year. The lower GAAP net income is due in part to the elimination of substantially all of the Company's deferred income tax asset valuation allowance at the end of fiscal 2013 that caused GAAP basis income tax expense to revert to a level that reflects full statutory tax rates beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Despite this, on a cash basis, the Company's pretax income is still largely sheltered from taxation by net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards, and is expected to remain so for the next few years.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $5.6 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP earnings exclude the impact of intangibles amortization, stock-based compensation and acquisition-related expenses, and include income tax expense that reflects cash taxes paid for the period after giving effect to the utilization of NOL and tax credit carryforwards. A reconciliation of the GAAP-basis pretax income to the non-GAAP net income and earnings per diluted share is provided in the table at the end of this press release.

As of May 31, 2013, the Company had total cash of $24.5 million and an outstanding bank term loan of $4.8 million. Net cash provided by operating activities during the first quarter was $5.8 million, and the unused borrowing capacity on the bank revolver as of the end of the first quarter was $10.2 million.

Business Outlook
Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr. Burdiek said, "Based on our latest projections, we expect fiscal 2014 second quarter consolidated revenues to be in the range of $53 to $57 million. We anticipate that Wireless Datacom second quarter revenues will be up moderately on a sequential basis and up significantly year-over-year. We expect Satellite second quarter revenues to be down slightly on a sequential basis, but up year-over-year. At the bottom line, we expect second quarter GAAP basis net income in the range of a $0.04 to $0.08 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.14 to $0.18 per diluted share. Looking further ahead, we continue to expect that the second half of fiscal 2014 will be stronger than the first half of the year, as several previously announced opportunities as well as recently launched products begin ramping up, and we realize the full benefit of synergies from our Wireless Matrix acquisition."
