The Company also reported consolidated gross profit of $6,113,000, or 48.7% of revenue, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to $3,823,000, or 45.8% of revenue, for the same period in 2016. 

 

For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, gross profit in the Network Solutions segment was $2,981,000, or 46.4%, compared to $2,513,000, or 45.6%, for the same period in 2016. Gross profit in the Test & Measurement segment was $2,166,000, or 55.5%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to $1,310,000 or 46.2%, for the same period in 2016. Gross profit in the Embedded Solutions segment was $966,000, or 43.3% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

 

For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the Company reported consolidated operating expenses of $5,331,000, compared to $3,555,000 for the same period in 2016, an increase of $1,777,000. Included in 2017 consolidated operating expenses are the operating expenses of our new Embedded Solutions segment of $925,000, $199,000 of depreciation and amortization, $224,000 of stock compensation expense and $158,000 of integration expenses relating to our acquisition of CommAgility on February 17, 2017.

 

The Company reported operating profit of $782,000 for the three months ending September 30, 2017 compared to operating profit of $268,000 for the same period in 2016. The Company also reported cash flow provided by operations of $450,000 for the nine months ending September 30, 2017 compared to cash used by operations of ($742,000) for the same period 2016. The Company reported net income of $653,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to net income of $122,000 for the same period in 2016.

 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $1,458,000, compared to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $652,000 for the same period in 2016. The increase in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA from 2016 is attributable to improving revenues and gross margins.

 

The Company defines EBITDA as its net earnings before interest expense, provisions for taxes, depreciation expense and amortization expense. “Adjusted EBITDA” is EBITDA excluding our stock compensation expense, acquisition expenses, integration expenses, non-cash inventory impairment charges, restructuring charges, and other non-recurring costs. A reconciliation of net income / (loss) to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is included as an attachment to this press release.

 

The Company reported customer orders of $15,430,000 during the quarter ending September 30, 2017, compared to $11,146,000 of customer orders for the same period in 2016. Included in the September 30, 2017 quarter are $4,930,000 of customer orders in the Embedded Solutions segment. The consolidated backlog of firm orders to be shipped in the next twelve months was approximately $9,950,000 at September 30, 2017, a year over year increase of $3,821,000 over the same period in 2016 and a sequential increase of $2,980,000 compared to approximately $6,970,000 at June 30, 2017.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2017 the Company also recorded measurement period adjustments related to the accounting for the CommAgility acquisition and the completion of the valuation of intangible assets, contingent consideration and contingent asset associated with the equity claw back provisions and deferred taxes. The Company estimates that the CommAgility 2017 EBITDA target, as defined in the purchase agreement for the full equity component of the purchase price to be paid, will not be met. This will result in the estimated forfeiture of 2,092,516 shares in accordance with the equity claw back provisions of the CommAgility purchase agreement.

 

Tim Whelan, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “We are very pleased with the revenue and profitable growth in the quarter which were at the high end of our expectations resulting in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $1,458,000. This has been our best quarter in over three years and reflects successful execution and progress in each of our three segments.” Whelan continued, “Our strong bookings in the quarter are a driver for continued revenue growth and highlight the value of our high-quality innovative solutions to our customers. We are particularly encouraged by $4.9 million of customer orders in our Embedded Solutions segment in the quarter which underscores our investment thesis in the long-term trend of LTE private network deployments. We are excited about the growth opportunity in this segment, the transformational value of their solution set and engineering expertise in the CommAgility operations. We expect to continue to invest across our three segments aligning our product roadmaps, go-to-market execution and strategic planning to the growth expectations from network densification, small cell deployment and private LTE network deployment in the foreseeable future.”

 

The Company expects the following consolidated results for the quarter ended December 31, 2017:

 

·Revenue between $11.5 million and $12.0 million (resulting in an expectation for full year revenue between $45.5 million and $46 million).
·Gross margins between 46-47%
·Non-GAAP operating expenses between $4.8 and $5.0 million (specifically, the Company’s GAAP operating expenses, excluding depreciation expense, amortization expense, stock compensation expense, restructuring charges, purchase accounting adjustments in accordance with US GAAP, and non-recurring CommAgility acquisition and integration expenses, which cannot be itemized for reconciliation to the comparable GAAP measure at this time).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Management believes, however, that certain non-GAAP financial measures used in managing the Company’s business may provide users of this financial information with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and prior reported results. Certain of the information set forth herein constitutes non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission. We have presented herein a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The non-GAAP measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. The foregoing measures do not serve as a substitute and should not be construed as a substitute for GAAP performance, but provide supplemental information concerning our performance that our investors and we find useful.

 

The Company views Adjusted EBITDA as an important indicator of performance, consistent with the manner in which management measures and forecasts the Company’s performance. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is an important performance metric because it facilitates the analysis of our results, exclusive of certain non-cash items, including items which do not directly correlate to our business operations.

 

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA metrics provide qualitative insight into our current performance; we use these measures to evaluate our results, the performance of our management team and our management’s entitlement to incentive compensation; and we believe that making this information available to investors enables them to view our performance the way that we view our performance and thereby gain a meaningful understanding of our core operating results, in general, and from period to period.
