November 10, 2021

 

Parsippany, New Jersey – Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE American: WTT) (the “Company”) today announced results for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

 

Tim Whelan, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. stated, “The sequential improvements in quarterly revenue we have experienced throughout 2021 is encouraging. We ended the 2021 third quarter with the highest quarter of revenues since 2019, which reflects the continued success of our acquisitions, investments in organic growth initiatives, and improved market conditions. Long-term investments in 5G solutions, satellite applications, semiconductor test investments, and carrier network densification continue to drive demand for our products. In addition, we experienced strong orders across all our product groups and signed another 5G software contract in the quarter for 5G small cell deployment.”

 

Mr. Whelan continued, “During the quarter, we also demonstrated our ability to generate improving profitability and cash flow and we prepaid almost half of our outstanding term debt. This is expected to decrease interest expense and improve overall cash flow and profitability going forward.”

 

 
 

 

“Despite industry-wide supply chain challenges, we expect to achieve another quarter of sequential revenue growth in the fourth quarter. We anticipate incremental investment in the fourth quarter as we continue to expand our team to support our growing backlog and long-term growth opportunities, specifically in our RBS product group for 5G small cell and private network opportunities. As our business recovers, I want to thank our global team members for their hard work and commitment,” concluded Mr. Whelan.

 

Third Quarter 2021 Operating Results:

 

  Net revenues of $12.8 million, an increase of $2.0 million, or 18.0% over the prior year period primarily due to increased sales at our RF Components (“RFC”) product group due to increased carrier spending and increased sales at our Radio, Baseband and Software (“RBS”) product group due to higher sales of our digital signal processing cards.
  Gross profit of $6.5 million, an increase of $886,000, or 15.7% over the prior year period primarily due to higher sales at RFC. Gross profit margin declined marginally from 52% to 51% due to mix primarily at RBS.
  Backlog of $12.7 million, an increase of $267,000 from June 30, 2021.
  As a percent of revenue, total operating expenses were 55.3%, compared to 55.2% for the same period last year. Operating expenses were $7.1 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 18.1% from the prior year period primarily due to the recognition of a loss on the change in the fair value of contingent consideration related to the year two Holzworth earn out.
  GAAP net loss of $187,000 compared to a net loss of $775,000 in the prior year period primarily due to the loss on change in fair value of contingent consideration in the current year offset by improved gross profit and the recognition of a tax benefit in the current year.
  Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $1.1 million compared to $722,000 in the prior year primarily due to higher revenues and gross profit. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is a metric the Company uses to measure our core operations. A reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income is provided later in this press release.

 

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet:

 

  Cash provided by operations of $535,000 compared to cash used by operations of $852,000 in the prior year period, due primarily to an increase in operating income and lower cash used for working capital as compared to the prior year.
  Net debt of $3.2 million as of September 30, 2021, compared to $5.4 million as of December 31, 2020.
  Outstanding borrowings under the asset-based revolver of $45,000 and availability of $5.1 million after giving effect to borrowing base calculations as of September 30, 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Performance Indicators

 

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, goodwill impairment charges, loss on change in fair value of contingent consideration 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 defines adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA 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.

 

Book-to-bill ratio is the ratio of orders received to units shipped and billed for a specified period. The Company excludes billable freight from the calculation of units shipped in determining the book-to-bill ratio.

 

GAAP operating expenses (“GAAP opex”) includes research and development expenses, sales and marketing expenses, general and administrative expenses, non-cash goodwill impairment charges and loss on change in fair value of contingent consideration. 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, non-cash goodwill impairment charges, loss on change in fair value of contingent consideration 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.

 

The Company believes the book-to-bill ratio is a key performance indicator used in measuring supply and demand in the industries in which we operate as well as measuring how quickly the Company fulfills the demand for its products.

 

 
 

 

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. Forward-looking statements include, among others, our expectation to decrease interest expense and improve overall cash flow and profitability going forward and that our fourth quarter will include another quarter of sequential growth along with cost increases related to continued investments in our people and expansion for growth in our backlog. 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 but not limited to, the impact that the evolving COVID-19 pandemic may have on our business, our supply chain, freight costs and the economy in the future, our ability to hire and retain key personnel with appropriate technical abilities, our dependency on capital spending on data and communication networks by our customers and end users, our dependency on the deployment of 4G LTE and 5G NR private networks and related services to grow our business, the impact of the loss of any significant customers, the ability of our management to successfully implement our business plan and strategy, our ability to raise additional capital to fund our operations given our degree of leverage, product demand and development of competitive technologies in our market sector, the impact of competitive products and pricing, our abilities to protect our intellectual property rights, our ability to manage risks related to our information technology and cyber security, among others. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. These risks and uncertainties are disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as supplemented and revised by the risks and uncertainties set forth in the Company’s subsequent reports filed with the SEC. The Company’s forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release.
