 CalAmp Reports Fiscal 2018 First Quarter Financial Results
   Tuesday, June 27, 2017 4:05:00 PM ET

CalAmp (CAMP ), a pure-play pioneer of Internet of Things (IoT) enablement solutions, today reported results for its first quarter of fiscal 2018 ended May 31, 2017.

Revenue for the fiscal 2018 first quarter was $88.1 million, a decrease of 3% from the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Excluding last year’s revenue from the former satellite business, which ceased operations effective August 31, 2016, revenue in the latest quarter was up 6% from $82.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

Michael Burdiek, CalAmp’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased with our first quarter performance as we report a strong start to the fiscal year. We built on the momentum from last quarter and grew our core telematics and subscription revenues as we continued to expand our technology leadership. We see additional opportunities from large customers as we invest in our core technologies and expand our strategic partnerships with IoT industry leaders."

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $37.4 million, an increase of $2.6 million over the same quarter last year. Gross margin was 42.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, up from 38.2% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

Our GAAP-basis net loss in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $2.7 million, or ($0.08) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.7 million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, in the fiscal 2017 first quarter. Non-GAAP adjusted basis net income for the fiscal 2018 first quarter was $10.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted basis net income of $11.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

The GAAP-basis results of operations in the fiscal 2018 first quarter were adversely affected by a charge of $6.1 million, or ($0.11) per diluted share net of tax, for additional damages associated with the Omega patent infringement judgment. Notwithstanding the reserve recorded in the first quarter, the Company is continuing to pursue all legal remedies in this patent infringement matter, and management believes that CalAmp will ultimately prevail.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $13.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.0%, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $13.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 15.1% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

As of May 31, 2017, the company had total cash and marketable securities of $109.2 million and total debt outstanding of $148.6 million, which is the carrying amount of the company’s 1.625% convertible notes in the face amount of $172.5 million. Net cash provided by operating activities was $10.9 million during the first quarter.

Q1 Business and Financial Highlights

-- MRM telematics product revenue grew 8% sequentially and 17% year-over-year, reaching the highest level of the past six quarters.

-- Software and subscription service revenue was $16.1 million, up 6% sequentially.

-- Record gross margin of 42.5%.

-- We commenced shipments of MRM Telematics products to several LoJack international licensees.

-- We commercially launched CrashBoxx(TM) Instant Crash Notification and enhanced CrashBoxx services for automated accident reconstruction and predictive vehicle damage assessments.

Business Outlook The outlook for the fiscal 2018 second quarter ending August 31, 2017 is:

-- Consolidated revenue in the range of $86 to $91 million.

-- GAAP basis net income in the range of $0.32 to $0.38 per diluted share.

-- Non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.23 to $0.29 per diluted share.

-- Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $10.5 to $13.5 million.

The second quarter GAAP basis net income outlook includes a contribution of approximately $0.30 per diluted share from the receipt of the first installment of a legal settlement reached this month with a former supplier to LoJack. The effects of this legal settlement are excluded from non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA. The second quarter earnings outlook also contemplates a roughly 10% sequential quarter increase in R&D expense in support of strategic program rollouts with key customers that are expected to contribute to revenue in the coming quarters.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES TO GAAP
(Unaudited)
"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, Adjusted basis net income per diluted share, non-GAAP gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Investment Income, Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Stock-Based Compensation and other adjustments as identified below), and Adjusted EBITDA margin. 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 the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates the comparison of results of core business operations between its current and past periods.
The reconciliation of the GAAP basis net loss to Adjusted basis (non-GAAP) net income is as follows (in thousands except per share amounts):
