OXNARD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/02/13 -- CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today reported results for its second quarter ended August 31, 2013. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Consolidated second quarter revenue of $58.8 million, up 34% compared to the second quarter last year with Wireless Datacom revenue up 38% over prior year second quarter to $47.2 million.
  • Second quarter GAAP net income of $2.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to $3.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the second quarter last year.
  • Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $6.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $4.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the same period last year.
  • Net cash provided by operations for the second quarter of $8.0 million, and total cash balance at August 31, 2013 of $29.7 million.

Commenting on results in the latest quarter, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am very pleased with our second quarter performance, particularly the strong revenue growth and solid profitability. Our focused execution coupled with continued strong customer demand for our products and services resulted in a 38% year-over-year increase in Wireless Datacom revenue during the second quarter. This growth was driven to a large extent by our Mobile Resource Management (MRM) products business, which benefited from significant channel demand for stolen vehicle recovery products, along with continued strength in fleet management and asset tracking. Our Wireless Networks business, which comprises the remainder of our Wireless Datacom segment, also generated strong year-over-year growth. The acquired operations of Wireless Matrix, along with growth in the Energy vertical, more than offset a year-over-year reduction in Rail revenue resulting from the completion of our Positive Train Control development project in the second quarter last year. In addition, our Satellite segment once again generated meaningful operating cash flow and contributed to our bottom-line profitability. We believe CalAmp's strong momentum exiting the second quarter and healthy pipeline of new opportunities, driven by an expanding network of global channel partners and a robust portfolio of innovative products, provide the Company with a strong tailwind as we enter the second half of fiscal 2014."

Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Results
Total revenue for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $58.8 million compared to $44.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of 34%. Wireless Datacom revenue increased to $47.2 million from $34.2 million in the same period last year, and Satellite revenue was $11.6 million compared to $9.8 million in the second quarter last year.

Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $19.8 million, an increase of $5.7 million over the same quarter last year, primarily attributable to higher revenue. The consolidated gross margin was 33.7% in the fiscal 2014 second quarter, up from 32.1% in the second 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 second quarter was $2.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the second quarter of last year. The lower GAAP net income is due to higher intangibles amortization expense in the current year associated with the acquisition of Wireless Matrix, and 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 second quarter was $6.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $4.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP earnings excludes the impact of intangibles amortization and stock-based compensation, and includes income tax expense that reflects cash taxes paid or payable 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 August 31, 2013, the Company had total cash of $29.7 million and an outstanding bank term loan of $4.6 million. Net cash provided by operating activities during the second quarter was $8.0 million, and the unused borrowing capacity on the bank revolver as of the end of the second quarter was $10.4 million.

Business Outlook
Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr. Burdiek said, "Based on our latest projections, we expect our fiscal 2014 third quarter consolidated revenues to be in the range of $59 to $63 million. We anticipate that Wireless Datacom third quarter revenues will increase on a sequential basis partly driven by emerging demand for insurance telematics products. We expect Satellite third quarter revenues to be relatively flat on a sequential basis, but up significantly year-over-year. At the bottom line, we expect third quarter GAAP basis net income in the range of $0.07 to $0.10 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.19 to $0.23 per diluted share."

"GAAP" refers to financial information presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. This press release includes historical non-GAAP financial measures, as defined in Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. CalAmp believes that its 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 press release, CalAmp reports the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted Basis Net Income and Adjusted Basis Net Income Per Diluted Share. CalAmp uses these non-GAAP financial measures to enhance the investor's overall understanding of the financial performance and future prospects of CalAmp's core business activities. Specifically, CalAmp believes that a report of Adjusted Basis Net Income and Adjusted Basis Net Income Per Diluted Share provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates the comparison of results of core business operations between its current and past periods.

The reconciliation of the GAAP Basis Pretax Income to Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) Net Income is as follows
