The quarter ending March 31, 2018 included the CommAgility business in the Embedded Solutions segment for the full quarter while the year ago period included this business for the period of ownership from February 17, 2017 through March 31, 2017.

 

The Company also reported consolidated gross profit of $6,268,000, or 47.3% of revenue, for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $4,332,000 or 45.4% of revenue, for the same period in 2017.

 

Gross profit in the Network Solutions segment was $2,442,000, or 44.3%, for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $2,460,000, or 44.6%, for the same period in 2017.

Gross profit in the

 

 

Embedded Solutions segment was $1,981,000, or 49.6%, for the full quarter of ownership ended March 31, 2018, compared to $538,000, or 54.0%, for the period of ownership in the prior year February 17, 2017 to March 31, 2017.

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2018, the Company reported consolidated operating expenses of $5,748,000, compared to $6,051,000 for the same period in 2017, a decrease of $303,000. Included in 2018 consolidated operating expenses are the operating expenses of CommAgility of $1,371,000 for the three months of ownership ended March 31, 2018.

The net income for the quarter-ended March 31, 2018 was $374,000, compared to a net loss of $1,231,000 for the same period in 2017.

 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $1,612,000, compared to $447,000 for the same period in 2017. The increase in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA from the prior year is attributable to the increase in revenue and gross profit.

 

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, restructuring charges, acquisition expenses, integration expenses, foreign exchange gains and losses and other non-recurring costs. A reconciliation of net income to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is included as an attachment to this press release.

 

The Company’s consolidated backlog of firm orders to be shipped in the next twelve months was $10,576,000 at March 31, 2018, an increase over the December 31, 2017 backlog of $9,888,000 and the backlog of $6,750,000 at March 31, 2017.

 

Tim Whelan, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “We are very pleased with our Q1 financial results which reflected top-line strength in each of our three segments and a continued improving profitability profile. Our bookings and backlog growth also reflects sustained strong customer demand across our solutions which are enabling the development, testing and deployment of wireless connectivity.” Whelan added, “We continued to accomplish new and improved product initiatives during the first quarter in our Test & Measurement and Embedded Solutions segments. We were also proud to announce our selection by Lockheed Martin for integrated software and hardware solutions for an innovative satellite communications project. We are actively engaged with our customers on project designs and deployment planning and, looking ahead, we expect to see continued growth momentum.”

 

The Company expects the following for the quarter ended June 30, 2018:

Revenue between $12,250,000 and $12,750,000
Gross margins between 45-46% of revenues
Non-GAAP operating expenses between $5.4 and $5.6 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, non-recurring acquisition and integration expenses, and foreign exchange gains and losses which cannot be itemized with particularity 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 and certain of the information presented by the Company from time to time may constitute 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 and non-recurring 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.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding continued momentum delivering new and improved products and customer solutions, and expectations with respect to revenue, gross margins and non-GAAP operating expenses for the quarter ending June 30, 2018. Investors are cautioned that such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could materially affect actual results, including, among others, the Company’s ability to continue the successful integration of CommAgility, product demand, development of competitive technologies in the Company’s market sector, the retention of key customers, fluctuations between the dollar and British pound, compliance with changing laws and regulations, as well as other risks and uncertainties set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information to reflect changes in assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events, or otherwise, as except as required by law.
