November 13, 2020

 

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

 

Tim Whelan, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “Despite the continued market challenges, we made progress in the third quarter executing on our strategic plan to drive long term organic growth and improved profitability. We released three new products and signed a new contract for our LTE software and services for a satellite application. Our improving gross profit margins reflect our continued success driving our Radio, Baseband and Software solutions and our Test & Measurement solutions which includes successful organic growth for our Holzworth product solutions.”

 

Whelan continued, “Momentum for our software solutions is accelerating, and I am excited to announce that the Company signed another new software contract in October. With this contract, we have year-to-date software and service wins of approximately $2.4 million. Our sales pipeline for our software and services solutions is robust and we expect additional new contracts to sign before the end of 2020 as well as in early 2021 which could meaningfully add scale within this market. We are thrilled that our RBS Solutions portfolio is providing successful growth milestones, including an expanding funnel, four signed contracts, and a larger backlog to be delivered over the next several quarters.”

 

Mr. Whelan concluded, “While the Covid-19 crisis has delayed spend on certain programs, our diversified product strategy and end-market focus has allowed us to successfully navigate through this challenging period. We remain focused on providing leading solutions for large and growing markets and we believe we are positioned for sales growth and improved profitability in 2021 and beyond.”

 

 

 

 

For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company reported consolidated net revenues of $10.9 million compared to $10.8 million for the same period in 2019, which primarily reflects increases in our software licenses and Test & Measurement (T&M) products offset by lack of demand for our Radio, Baseband and Software (RBS) digital signal processing hardware products and lower sales of RF Components (RFC) products due to delays in spending by carriers on large venues. T&M revenue increased 93.5% from the prior year reflecting the inclusion of the Holzworth acquisition which contributed $2.8 million in revenue in the third quarter of 2020.

 

New customer orders for the third quarter were $10.8 million compared to $11.0 million in the same period in the prior year. The Company’s consolidated backlog of firm orders was $6.1 million at September 30, 2020, compared to $6.2 million at June 30, 2020. The September 30, 2020 backlog includes $875,000 of software and services compared to $385,000 at June 30, 2020.

 

The Company reported consolidated gross profit of $5.7 million or 52.0% of revenue, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $4.8 million or 44.6% of revenue, for the same period in 2019. Gross margins increased in 2020 due to higher margin software sales in the RBS product group, the contribution of higher margin Holzworth products in the T&M product group and the impact of cost savings activities initiated by the Company at the beginning of the year.

 

For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company reported consolidated operating expenses of $6.0 million, compared to $5.5 million for the same period in 2019. The increase resulted from higher investments in research and development in the area of T&M product roadmap and the addition of Holzworth operating expenses. Research and Development accounted for 30% of the operating expenses in the quarter compared to 24% during the same period in 2019.

 

Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $775,000, compared to net loss of $461,000 for the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher research and development expenses, higher foreign exchange loss, higher interest expense and higher tax expense primarily due to qualified PPP loan expenses that cannot be deducted if the loan is expected to be forgiven, offset by greater gross profit margin contribution.

 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $722,000, compared to $97,000 for the same period in 2019, an increase of 644%, or $625,000. The increase in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA from the prior year is attributable to the increased gross margins and lower operating expenses in our core business offset by the inclusion of the operating expenses from the Holzworth acquisition. 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.

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

 

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. In some cases, such forward-looking statements may be identified by terms such as believe, expect, seek, may, will, intend, project, anticipate, plan, estimate, guidance or similar words.

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 impact of the coronavirus outbreak on customer orders, supply chain and the Company’s operations; the ability of the Company to obtain forgiveness of the PPP loan pursuant to the CARES Act and provisions of the PPP; the demand for private 4G LTE and 5G private networks; the loss of any significant customers of the Company; the ability of management to successfully implement the Company’s business plan and strategy; management’s ability to integrate the Holzworth business successfully; the impact of competitive products and pricing; 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, 2019 as supplemented and revised by the risks and uncertainties set forth in the Company’s subsequent reports filed with the SEC.
