Gross Profit of $5.7 million, 51% Gross Margin

August 13, 2020

 

Parsippany, New Jersey – Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE American: WTT) (the “Company”) announced today results for the 2020 second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

 

Tim Whelan, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “We are pleased with our second quarter financial results which reflect sequential new order growth of 18.5%, improved gross margins and greater contributions from software revenues. I am also excited to report we signed software agreements with two new customers, including our first customer for our NXP-based 5G solutions. We are seeing a high level of interest from potential customers who are looking to deploy 5G across a range of applications.”

 

Whelan continued, “While there continues to be a great deal of uncertainty, we are optimistic about the remainder of 2020 due to solid growth in our sales funnel, strong performance by the Holzworth acquisition, and improving gross margins across multiple product lines. Furthermore, the recent addition of Alfred Rodriguez, an industry veteran from Xilinx, as our new Chief Revenue Officer strengthens our executive leadership and is a key hire in implementing our unified go-to-market strategy.”

 

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company reported consolidated net revenues of $11,108,000, compared to $13,508,000 for the same period in 2019, a decrease of 17.8%, which was primarily due to the previously announced lower sales of digital signal processing hardware of $4.5 million in our Radio, Baseband and Software product group. This decrease was offset by increased LTE software license revenue of $500,000 compared to the prior year, as well as an increase in RF Components revenue of 5.1% compared to the prior year due to revenues from large projects. Test & Measurement revenue increased 40.1% from the prior year reflecting the inclusion of the Holzworth acquisition which contributed $1.9 million in revenue in the second quarter, which offset declines in other products due to reductions in capital expenditures by customers due to Covid 19.

 

 

 

 

New customer orders for the second quarter were $12,354,000 compared to $10,424,000 in the first quarter, an increase of 18.5%, reflecting the recent pivot in the Company’s go-to-market strategy and contribution from Holzworth. The Company’s consolidated backlog of firm orders to be shipped in the next twelve months was $6,219,000 at June 30, 2020, an increase of 26.9% compared to March 31, 2020.

 

The Company reported consolidated gross profit of $5,668,000 or 51.0% of revenue, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to $6,133,000 or 45.4% of revenue, for the same period in 2019. Gross margins increased in 2020 on lower costs due primarily to cost savings initiatives implemented at the beginning of 2020, the inclusion of higher margin Holzworth revenues, and favorable product mix of higher margin software.

 

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company reported consolidated operating expenses of $5,727,000, compared to $5,987,000 for the same period in 2019. The decrease resulted from cost savings initiatives implemented at the beginning of 2020, offset by higher investments in research and development in the area of 5G roadmap development and the addition of Holzworth operating expenses.

 

Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $668,000, compared to net income of $156,000 for the same period in 2019.

 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $794,000, compared to $1,127,000 for the same period in 2019. The decrease in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA from the prior year is attributable to the decrease in revenues, which was only partially offset by improved gross profit margins and lower operating expenses. The Company’s explanation of Adjusted EBITDA and the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is set out below in this press release.

 

Corporate Initiatives

 

During the Company’s Annual Shareholders Meeting on June 4, 2020, management presented a strategy update, including a new go-to-market initiative reorganizing to a single segment with three product groupings: Radio, Baseband and Software Solutions, RF Components, and Test and Measurement Solutions.

 

As part of this new initiative the Company expanded its executive team to add a Chief Revenue Officer role who will lead consolidated global sales across all 3 product groupings, and on August 4, 2020, Alfred Rodriquez was appointed to this role. Mr. Rodriquez joins the Company from Xilinx and brings more than 20 years of leadership experience with deep, design-in solutions and signal processing products.

 

As previously disclosed, the Company’s long-term goals are:

 

  Annual double-digit organic revenue growth;
  50%+ gross margins; and
  Adjusted EBITDA margins of 15% by 2024.

 

The slides and a recording of the presentation are available on the Company’s website.

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, unrealized and realized foreign exchange gains and losses, purchase accounting adjustments, non-recurring legal fees associated with the Harris arbitration 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 defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITA divided by revenue. The Company does not provide a forward-looking reconciliation of expected Adjusted EBITDA Margin because 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.

 

GAAP operating expenses (“GAAP opex”) includes research and development expenses, sales and marketing expenses and general and administrative expenses. The Company defines non-GAAP Operating Expenses (“Non-GAAP Opex”) as GAAP opex excluding stock compensation expense, restructuring charges, acquisition expenses, integration expenses, depreciation and amortization expense, non-recurring legal fees associated with the Harris arbitration and other non-recurring costs and expenses.

 

The Company views Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Non-GAAP Opex as important indicators 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 and Non GAAP Opex 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
