04/28/22

Fourth Quarter Software and Subscription Services revenue increases 19% year-over-year to $41 million, representing a record 60% of total revenue

Remaining Performance Obligations (RPO) increase 47% year-over-year to $200 million at year-end

IRVINE, Calif., April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  CalAmp (Nasdaq: CAMP), a connected intelligence company helping people and organizations improve operational performance with a data-driven solutions ecosystem, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2022 ended February 28, 2022.

“Our Software and Subscription Services revenue increased 13% sequentially and 19% over the prior year period, reflecting our ongoing success in converting customers to recurring subscription contracts combined with new logo generation,” said Jeff Gardner, CalAmp’s president and CEO. “Notably, we transitioned approximately one-fifth of our eligible telematics device customers in the quarter and expect to convert the remaining customers throughout fiscal year 2023. As we enter our new fiscal year, we are well positioned with a robust solutions and partnership roadmap, a solid cadence of customer conversions to recurring software contracts, and historically high levels of backlog.”

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Overview

  • Fourth quarter revenue was $68.4 million compared to $68.8 million in the prior quarter; full year revenue was $295.8 million as compared to $308.6 million.
  • Software and Subscription Services (S&SS) revenue in the fourth quarter was $41.2 million, up 13% sequentially and represented 60% of consolidated revenue; full year S&SS revenue grew 19% to $154.3 million, representing 52% of consolidated revenue, compared to $129.9 million or 42% in the prior year.
  • Telematics Products revenue in the quarter was down 16% sequentially to $27.1 million; full year revenue declined 21% to $141.5 million compared to $178.7 million in the prior year due mainly to customer conversions to recurring software subscription arrangements coupled with ongoing component shortages.
  • Gross margin was 41% for the fourth quarter and consistent with the prior quarter despite cost increases resulting from continuing supply chain constraints; full year gross margin was 41% compared to 40% in the prior year.
  • GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $9.2 million, or a loss of $0.26 per share; for the full year, GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $31.1 million, or a loss of $0.88 per share, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $21.2 million or a loss of $0.62 per share in the prior year.

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 (loss), Adjusted basis net income (loss) 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 and legal expenses, impairment losses and certain other adjustments as detailed in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliation), and Adjusted EBITDA margin. Adjusted basis net income (loss) excludes the impact of intangible asset amortization expense, stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, acquisition and integration expenses, non-cash costs and expenses arising from purchase accounting adjustments, litigation and legal expenses, income tax provision adjustments, impairment losses 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 (loss), Adjusted basis net income (loss) per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before investment income, interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation 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 current and past periods.  

The reconciliation of GAAP basis net loss to Adjusted basis (non-GAAP) net income (loss) is as follows (in thousands except per share amounts):
