CalAmp Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

05/05/20
Fourth quarter consolidated revenue of $87.2 million, up 3% year-over-year
SaaS revenue of $34.8 million, up 83% year-over-year
Full year SaaS revenue of $124.9 million

IRVINE, Calif., May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CalAmp (Nasdaq: CAMP), a global technology solutions pioneer transforming the mobile connected economy, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2020 ended February 29, 2020. 

"Our fourth quarter revenue reflected the supply chain shortages primarily related to the COVID-19 pandemic and softness in demand for our MRM Telematics products that we discussed in our pre-announcement release on March 5, 2020," said Jeff Gardner, interim president and chief executive officer. "Highlighting the quarter, the Software & Subscription Services business had another quarter of solid growth, further underscoring our progress in transforming our business to a SaaS-based model. As CalAmp's newly appointed interim president and CEO and a long-time board member, my primary focus is to leverage our broad global scale and sales organization to deliver enhanced performance metrics across the Company."

"As we navigate the COVID-19 worldwide crisis, our primary concern is the health and safety of all employees who are effectively working remotely by utilizing technologies to support virtual communications across our organization and also with our customers, partners and suppliers. At the same time, I am closely evaluating the entire business for implementing further strategic enhancements, and I remain fully committed to transforming CalAmp into a leading SaaS solutions provider, supported by steady and predictable recurring revenue streams. With our strong balance sheet and recently extended credit line, I believe we are well positioned to manage through these uncertain times and emerge as an even stronger company."

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Overview

  • Consolidated revenue was $87.2 million for the fourth quarter and $366.1 million for fiscal year 2020.
  • Software & Subscriptions Services revenue was $34.8 million for the fourth quarter representing an increase of 83% year-over-year primarily due to contribution from the recent acquisitions and solid growth in LoJack® international subscription services.
  • Telematics Systems revenue declined sequentially to $52.4 million due to supply chain shortages related to the COVID-19 pandemic and softer demand for MRM telematics products, while Network & OEM products revenue increased sequentially to $17.9 million due to consistent demand from its largest customer.
  • Total subscribers increased to 1.3 million from 1.0 million a year ago driven by increased subscriptions from the recent acquisitions.
  • Gross margin was 39% for the full year 2020, reflecting the impact of unfavorable product mix and manufacturing variances related to closure of the Company's U.S. manufacturing facility.
  • GAAP net loss was $79.3 million, or a $2.36 loss per share for fiscal year 2020, which is attributable to non-cash charges for a $19.1 million impairment loss on intangible and other long-lived assets and a $34.6 million valuation allowance recorded against net deferred tax assets.
  • Adjusted basis non-GAAP net income was $15.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share for fiscal year 2020.
  • Operating cash flow was $11.5 million for fiscal year 2020, with adjusted EBITDA of $36.9 million and adjusted EBITDA margin of 10% .
  • Repurchased $94.9 million in aggregate principal amount of the 1.625% Convertible Senior Notes plus accrued interest with the remaining balance of $27.6 million due on May 15, 2020.
  • Ended the fiscal year 2020 with $107.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and extended the $50 million revolving credit facility with J.P. Morgan through March 2022.

Business and Recent Highlights

  • Launched LoJack's new Connect Family of subscription services to dealers and drivers across the U.S.
  • Announced availability of new iOn Tags™ and iOn Vision™ powered by the CalAmp Telematics Cloud.
  • Expanded Synovia's award-winning Here Comes The Bus (HCTB) application's reach across North America with some school districts currently using HCTB to deliver critically-needed meals to school children during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Appointed Arym Diamond with extensive SaaS experience as Senior Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer and Jeff Clark as Senior Vice President of Product Management.

First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Business Outlook

"With the timing, magnitude and duration of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic virtually impossible to fully ascertain at the present time, we have decided not to provide guidance for the fiscal 2021 first quarter," said Kurt Binder, CalAmp's executive vice president and CFO. "With the global work-from-home mandates and the limited access to labor in Malaysia and Mexico, we are seeing a broad impact across our global supply chain that is in turn creating delivery and scheduling challenges for installations. Additionally, visibility into customer demand remains uncertain, especially for end markets such as automotive with a number of dealerships closed throughout the United States and an even more acute impact to those customers in Italy and other areas of Europe. Overall, our team is doing an effective job proactively addressing and managing all of these factors in order to help mitigate the impact to our business. Although we hope to return to providing quarterly guidance as conditions and visibility improve, the current global situation prevents us from accurately doing so at this time."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

"GAAP" refers to financial information presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. This announcement includes non-GAAP financial measures, as defined in Regulation G promulgated by the SEC. We believe that our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to investors. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided in addition to, and not as a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In this announcement, we report the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted basis net income, Adjusted basis net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Investment Income, Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition and integration expenses, non-cash costs and expenses arising from purchase accounting adjustments, litigation provisions, gain from legal settlement, impairment loss and certain other adjustments as detailed in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliation), and Adjusted EBITDA margin. Adjusted basis net income excludes the impact of intangible assets amortization expense, stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, acquisition and integration expenses, non-cash costs and expenses arising from purchase accounting adjustments, litigation provisions, gain on legal settlement, income tax provision adjustments, impairment loss and certain other adjustments as shown in the non-GAAP reconciliation provided in the table at the end of this announcement.  We use these non-GAAP financial measures to provide investors with additional information about our financial performance and future prospects of our core business activities. Internally, these non-GAAP measures are significant measures used by management for purposes of evaluating our core operating performance, establishing internal budgets, calculating return on investment for development programs and growth initiatives, comparing performance with internal forecasts and targeted business models, strategic planning, evaluating and valuing potential acquisition candidates and how their operations compare to our operations, and benchmarking performance externally against our competitors. We believe this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into our ongoing performance and have therefore chosen to provide this information to investors to help them evaluate our results of ongoing operations and enable additional period-to-period comparisons. The presentation of these and other similar items in our non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent, or unusual.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES TO GAAP
(Unaudited)

GAAP refers to financial information presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. This announcement includes historical non-GAAP financial measures, as defined in Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.  We believe that our presentation of historical non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to investors.  The presentation of historical non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In this announcement, we report the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted basis net income, Adjusted basis net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Investment Income, Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and stock-based compensation, gain on legal settlement, impairment loss and other adjustments as identified below), and Adjusted EBITDA margin. We use these non-GAAP financial measures to provide investors with an overall understanding of the financial performance and future prospects of our core business activities. Specifically, we believe that the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates the comparison of results of core business operations between its current and past periods.

(a) 

The non-GAAP income tax provision represents cash taxes paid or payable for the period after giving effect to the utilization of net operating losses and tax credit carryforwards.

(b) 

Other favorable (unfavorable) impacts to Adjusted basis net income and Adjusted EBITDA represent financial impacts that cannot be included in these Non-GAAP measures, but management believes can provide insights into underlying operational earnings for the periods presented above. These items include a) deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustment resulting from the recent acquisitions which reduces revenue and gross profit, b) manufacturing variances for  under absorption of labor and overhead into our inventory during the closure of our company's U.S. manufacturing facility, and c) inventories that are obsolete or in excess of demand forecast.
