August 13, 2019

 

Parsippany, New Jersey – Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE American: WTT) (the “Company”) announced today results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

 

Tim Whelan, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “Our second quarter financial results met our expectations resulting in improved operating income and net income over last year. We are excited about our new product introductions, customer wins, and partner collaborations across all segments of our business this year, further enhancing our positioning to benefit from growth in defense spending, network densification and 5G testing and deployment.”

 

Whelan continued, “We remain optimistic about the top-line momentum for the remainder of 2019 and are confident that specific projects in our sales funnel will be drivers of second half performance. Beyond 2019, our funnel of large opportunities, strategic partnerships, and market tailwinds strengthen our conviction in our 2023 targets.”

 

For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, the Company reported consolidated net revenues of $13,508,000, compared to $13,414,000 for the same period in 2018, an increase of 0.7%. Network Solutions revenue was flat compared to the prior year. Embedded Solutions revenue increased 11.7% on higher sales of digital signal processing hardware, somewhat offset by a decrease of 9.7% in Test and Measurement revenue on lower government shipments compared to the same quarter last year. The Company expects government shipments to increase in the second half of the year.

 

Consolidated gross profit in the second quarter was $6,133,000, or 45.4% of revenue, compared to $6,170,000 or 46.0% of revenue, for the same period in 2018. The slight decrease was primarily due to a decrease in high margin software and service revenue in Embedded Solutions, partially offset by favorable product mix and cost reduction initiatives in Test and Measurement.

 

   
 

 

The Company also reported a $150,000 reduction in consolidated operating expenses from $6,137,000 in the second quarter of 2018 to $5,987,000 in the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily related to lower G&A costs and contingent consideration associated with the CommAgility transaction, offset by higher headcount deployment in research and development in the area of 5G roadmap development.

 

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $156,000, compared to a net loss of $180,000 for the same period in 2018.

 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $1,127,000, compared to $1,076,000 for the same period in 2018. The Company’s explanation of Adjusted EBITDA and the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) are set out below in this press release.

 

New customer orders for the quarter increased 10% to $13,084,000 compared to $11,871,000 in the same quarter last year. The Company’s consolidated backlog of firm orders to be shipped in the next twelve months was $7,215,000 at June 30, 2019, compared to the June 30, 2018 backlog of $8,800,000.

 

Outlook

 

The Company continues to expect full year 2019 revenue growth in the low to mid-single digits, comparable gross margins to 2018, and improved operating profitability.

 

Beyond 2019, the Company reaffirms its expectation to grow revenues organically between 10% and 12% over the next four years based on the long term trends of network densification and 5G deployment, private LTE network expansion and increased military spend. The Company also expects strong organic growth to be driven by multiple internal initiatives including the continuation of new product introductions, channel expansion, and operational excellence. The Company’s 2023 targets include annual revenues of $100 million, inclusive of strategic acquisitions, gross profit margins between 47% and 49%, and Adjusted EBITDA margins of approximately 15%. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margins as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue (see use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures below).

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 defines EBITDA as its net earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. “Adjusted EBITDA” is EBITDA excluding our stock compensation expense, restructuring charges, acquisition expenses, integration expenses, the one-time non-cash inventory impairment charges, unrealized and realized foreign exchange gains and losses, non-recurring legal fees associated with the Harris arbitration and other non-recurring costs and includes cash received in 2018 related to revenue that would have been recognized in 2018 but for the adoption of ASU Topic 606. A reconciliation of net income to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is included as an attachment to this press release.

 

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. The Company does not provide a forward-looking reconciliation of expected Adjusted EBITDA Margin as the amount and significance of special items required to develop meaningful comparable GAAP financial measures cannot be estimated at this time without unreasonable efforts. These special items could be meaningful.

 

The Company views Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as important indicators of performance, consistent with the manner in which management measures and forecasts the Company’s performance. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are important performance metrics because they facilitate 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 and Adjusted EBITDA margin metrics provide qualitative insight into our current performance and we use these measures to evaluate our results. Additionally, we use Adjusted EBITDA to measure the performance of our management team and management’s entitlement to incentive compensation. 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.
