CalAmp Reports Record Fiscal 2016 Second Quarter Financial Results

10/01/15

OXNARD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/01/15 -- CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today reported results for its second quarter ended August 31, 2015. Highlights include:

  • Consolidated revenue up 18% year-over-year to a record $69.8 million

  • Wireless Datacom revenue up 23% year-over-year to a record $61.8 million

  • GAAP net income up 7% year-over-year with diluted GAAP EPS of $0.10

  • Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income up 30% with diluted non-GAAP EPS of $0.27

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of 16.9% compared to 14.1% in the second quarter last year

  • Operating cash flow of $12.4 million compared to $8.7 million in the second quarter last year

  • Total cash and marketable securities balance at August 31, 2015 of $218 million

Commenting on the second quarter fiscal 2016 results, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We had an outstanding second quarter, posting record revenues of $69.8 million and a 30% year-over-year increase in non-GAAP net income. Our continued operational execution resulted in Adjusted EBITDA of $11.8 million and operating cash flow of $12.4 million. During the quarter we experienced robust demand for our Mobile Resource Management (MRM) products from fleet management and asset tracking customers, along with solid growth in our Wireless Networks business. Our Satellite segment revenues were in-line with expectations while a favorable product mix drove higher gross margins and strong profitability. Our momentum exiting the quarter, coupled with an expanding pipeline of opportunities, is providing CalAmp with a strong tailwind heading into the second half of fiscal 2016."

Fiscal 2016 Second Quarter Results
Total revenue for the fiscal 2016 second quarter was a record $69.8 million compared to $59.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Wireless Datacom revenue increased to $61.8 million from $50.2 million in the same period last year, while Satellite revenue was $8.0 million in the second quarter compared to $9.0 million in the comparable quarter last year.

Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2016 second quarter was $25.3 million, an increase of $4.8 million over the same quarter last year, primarily attributable to higher Wireless Datacom revenue. Consolidated gross margin was 36.2% in the fiscal 2016 second quarter, compared to 34.6% in the second quarter last year.

GAAP net income for the fiscal 2016 second quarter was $3.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of last year. Although the Company's GAAP-basis effective tax rate of 37.0% in the latest quarter 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 2016 second quarter was $9.8 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP earnings of $7.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the second quarter last year. Non-GAAP net income excludes the impact of intangibles amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense and non-cash interest expense in the form of debt discount amortization, 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, 2015, the Company had total cash and marketable securities of $217.7 million and total debt outstanding of $136.7 million. Net cash provided by operating activities was $12.4 million during the second quarter and $28.8 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016, up from $16.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015. The unused borrowing capacity on CalAmp's bank revolver at quarter-end was $15 million.

Business Outlook
Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr. Burdiek said, "Looking at our fiscal 2016 third quarter, we expect to achieve consolidated revenue in the range of $71 to $76 million. We expect our Wireless Datacom and Satellite segment revenues in the third quarter to be solidly higher on both a sequential quarter and year-over-year basis. 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 $0.26 to $0.30 per diluted share."

Mr. Burdiek continued, "For our fiscal 2016 full-year outlook, we continue to expect consolidated revenues to gain momentum as the year progresses. Full-year revenues are expected to be in the range of $281 to $289 million, driven by continued growth in our Wireless Datacom segment and a much stronger second half in our Satellite segment. Our increasing scale, impressive roster of global enterprise customers and ongoing strategic investments position us well to sustain our momentum into fiscal 2017 and beyond."
