CalAmp Reports Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Results

10/06/14

OXNARD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/06/14 -- CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today reported results for its second quarter ended August 31, 2014. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Consolidated second quarter revenue of $59.2 million, up $0.4 million compared to the second quarter last year, with Wireless Datacom revenue up 6% to a record $50.2 million and Satellite revenue down 22% to $9.0 million.
  • Second quarter GAAP net income of $3.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $2.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share for the second quarter last year.
  • Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $7.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $6.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the same period last year.
  • Net cash provided by operations for the second quarter of $8.5 million, and total cash and marketable securities of $36.8 million at August 31, 2014.

Commenting on the second quarter fiscal 2015 results, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our solid performance in the second quarter was driven by ongoing strength in the Wireless Datacom segment, which generated record revenues of $50.2 million and led to an 11% year-over-year growth in non-GAAP earnings. During the quarter we experienced strong growth in energy revenues with renewed shipments to our solar power customer, coupled with robust demand for our Mobile Resource Management (MRM) products from fleet management and asset tracking customers. I am particularly encouraged by the expanding pipeline of opportunities and the momentum in demand for our MRM products as we enter the second half of fiscal 2015. In our Satellite segment, we saw an expected decline in revenues to $9 million, though a favorable product mix drove higher gross margins and meaningful contribution to our overall operating cash flow and profitability."

Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Results
Total revenue for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $59.2 million compared to $58.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Wireless Datacom revenue increased to $50.2 million from $47.2 million in the same period last year, while Satellite revenue was $9.0 million in the latest quarter compared to $11.6 million in the second quarter last year due to normal demand fluctuations in this business.

Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $20.5 million, an increase of $0.7 million over the same quarter last year, primarily attributable to higher Wireless Datacom revenue. The consolidated gross margin was 34.6% in the fiscal 2015 second quarter, compared to 33.7% in the second quarter last year.

GAAP net income for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $3.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the second quarter of last year. While the Company's GAAP-basis effective tax rate approximates the combined US federal and state statutory tax rate, the Company's pretax income is still largely sheltered from taxation by net operating loss and research and development tax credit carryforwards, and is expected to remain so for the next several years.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $7.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP earnings of $6.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP net income excludes the impact of intangibles amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related expenses, and includes an income tax provision for cash taxes paid or payable for the period. 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.

Liquidity
As of August 31, 2014, the Company had total cash and marketable securities of $36.8 million and no bank debt outstanding. Net cash provided by operating activities during the second quarter was $8.5 million, and the unused borrowing capacity on the bank revolver as of the end of the second quarter was $15 million.

Business Outlook
Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr. Burdiek said, "In the fiscal 2015 third quarter, we expect consolidated revenue in the range of $61 to $65 million. We anticipate Wireless Datacom revenue in the third quarter will be higher on a sequential quarter basis due primarily to the commencement of production shipments of telematics devices to a key OEM customer in the heavy equipment industry. Satellite revenue in the third quarter is expected to be down slightly on a sequential quarter basis to the lower end of its normal quarterly operating range. At the bottom line, we expect third quarter GAAP-basis net income in the range of $0.08 to $0.12 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.21 to $0.25 per diluted share."

Mr. Burdiek continued, "For fiscal 2015 as a whole, we expect consolidated revenues to gain momentum as the year progresses with revenue from our key heavy equipment OEM customer likely exceeding $10 million in the second half of this fiscal year. We anticipate full year revenues in the range of $250 to $255 million, GAAP-basis net income in the range of $0.36 to $0.42 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.88 to $0.94 per share. We are pleased with the momentum we are experiencing across our core portfolio, and anticipate that continued execution and investments in new applications and geographic expansion will drive growth into fiscal 2016 and beyond."
