 oti Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Financial Results
   Wednesday, March 25, 2015 8:38:09 PM ET

On Track Innovations Ltd. (oti) (OTIV ), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

Q4 2014 Operational Highlights

--  Partnered with Cubic Transportation Systems to integrate oti’s WAVE
    NFC device into Cubic’s NextWave mobile mass transit platform
--  Major African capital city selected EasyPark to support 300,000+
    drivers
--  Launched UNO, the industry’s most compact multi-purpose NFC payment
    reader
--  TRIO cashless payment reader received industry-wide certification for
    major credit card transactions



Q4 2014 Financial Details Revenues increased 4% to $5.5 million from the prior quarter, and decreased 12% from $6.2 million in the same year-ago period. The decrease from the year-ago period was primarily due to a decrease in sales in the U.S. market.

Gross profit was $2.5 million (46% of revenue) compared to $3.1 million (49% of revenue) in the same year-ago period. The decrease was primarily due to lower revenues and a greater mix of lower margin product sales.

Operating expenses totaled $5.0 million compared to $7.1 million in the same year-ago period. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in general and administrative expenses and patent-related expenses. Q4 2013 operating expenses included an impairment and amortization of intangible assets and goodwill expenses of $826,000.

Net loss from continuing operations totaled $2.6 million or $(0.08) per share. This compares to net loss from continuing operations of $4.1 million or $(0.12) per share in the same year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations totaled $1.6 million compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of $2.1 million in the same year-ago period (see discussion about the presentation of adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, a non-GAAP financial measure, below).

At quarter-end, cash and cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $16.4 million.

2014 Financial Details Revenues increased 16% to $23.1 million from $19.9 million in 2013. The improvement was driven by an increase in NFC reader sales in the U.S. market and WAVE NFC device sales.

Gross profit increased 3% to $11.1 million (48% of revenue) from $10.7 million (54% of revenue) in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to the higher revenues, offset by greater mix of lower margin product sales.

Operating expenses totaled $20.6 million compared to $16.5 million in the same year-ago period. 2013 operating expenses were offset by $4.2 million in "other operating income, net" due to a write-off of provisions for former executives’ termination following a settlement. Excluding the "other operating income, net" in the year-ago period, 2014 operating expenses were flat despite the increase in non-cash stock-based compensation, as well as continued investment in sales and marketing resources related to the company’s sales growth initiatives in new and existing markets.

Net loss from continuing operations totaled $10.2 million or $(0.30) per share compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $6.9 million or $(0.21) per share in 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations totaled $5.8 million compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of $2.1 million in 2013.

Management Commentary "The fourth quarter was consistent with our expectations as well as the outlook we provided in November," said oti CEO Ofer Tziperman. "While at the beginning of 2014 we expected to achieve a higher growth rate than 16%, we were not in a position to anticipate the slowdown of market participation leading up to the launch of Apple Pay and industry rumors around its underlying technology possibly not being NFC-based. While we believe the future of NFC was never reliant on Apple’s decision, their adoption of NFC reaffirms the tremendous value of oti’s 20-year investment in NFC technology and supports the long-term vision shared by our partners and customers.

"Despite the delay of some related orders in the second half of 2014, interest in our industry-leading NFC readers and WAVE devices is growing globally. In fact, we have and continue to be approached by leading players in the industry, including major vending machine manufacturers and operators, as well as global channel partners.

"These major players are interested in deploying oti’s line of cashless payment readers, and are currently in various stages of testing and integration. In terms of revenue expectations, is important to note that the typical sales cycle and implementation process for a major new customer can take 12 months or longer. However, we are working diligently to convert these engagements into meaningful sales in 2015 and beyond, and this increased activity strengthens our confidence that oti will be a major player in the fast growing market for cashless payment readers."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information This press release contains certain non-GAAP measures, namely, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operation, or adjusted earnings from continuing operation before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations represents earnings before interest or financing expenses, income tax, depreciation and amortization, and further eliminates the effect of share-based compensation expense and patent litigation and maintenance expenses. OTI believes that adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations should be considered in evaluating the company’s operations since it provides a clearer indication of OTI’s operating results. This measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with US GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for the US GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the US GAAP results in the tables below.
