Airgain Reports Third Quarter and Nine Month 2016 Results

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - November 10, 2016) - Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of embedded antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Sales increased 87% to $12.4 million from $6.7 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in product sales.

Gross profit increased 101% to $5.6 million (44.8% of sales) from $2.8 million (41.6% of sales) in the same year-ago period. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales was driven by an increase in the sales of board-mounted antennas, which typically carry higher gross margins.

Total operating expenses increased 53% to $4.3 million from $2.8 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to higher personnel expenses to support the company's sales and marketing and R&D initiatives. The increase was also due to higher administrative expenses incurred as a public company, including expenses related to the company's initial public offering.

Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $861 thousand or $0.16 per diluted share, an improvement from net loss attributable to common stockholders of $617 thousand or $(1.05) per diluted share in the same year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, fair market value for adjustments of warrants, and share-based compensation) increased to $1.6 million from $73 thousand in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

Third Quarter 2016 Key Performance Indicators (compared to same year-ago period)

  • Total customer devices increased 93% or 8.0 million devices to 16.6 million devices
  • The average number of antennas per device increased 15% to 2.84
  • The average selling price per device decreased 5% to $0.72

Nine Month 2016 Financial Results

Sales increased 67% to $30.8 million from $18.5 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in product sales.

Gross profit increased 77% to $13.8 million (44.8% of sales) from $7.8 million (42.3% of sales) in the same year-ago period. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales was driven by an increase in the sales of board-mounted antennas.

Total operating expenses increased 38% to $11.5 million from $8.3 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to higher personnel expenses to support the company's sales and marketing and R&D initiatives. The increase was also due to higher administrative expenses incurred as a public company, including expenses related to the company's initial public offering.

Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $1.1 million or $0.25 per diluted share, an improvement from net loss attributable to common stockholders of $2.1 million or $(3.70) per diluted share in the same year-ago period.

Management Commentary

"We're pleased with our results for the third quarter of 2016," said Airgain president and CEO, Charles Myers. "Building on the progress we made in Q2, the third quarter represented another period of strong top-line growth matched by our ability to maintain healthy margins, and ultimately, generate profitability for our shareholders.

"Sales, which were partially affected by some seasonal factors, grew by 87% to $12.4 million, driven by continued growth in our carrier gateway and set top box segments, but also the emerging prominence of our Smart TV segment. In fact, we recently shipped our 25 millionth antenna to the Smart TV market last month."

Forward-Looking Statements

Airgain cautions you that statements in this press release that are not a description of historical facts are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on the company's current beliefs and expectations. These forward-looking statements include statements regarding our future business growth. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by Airgain that any of our plans will be achieved. Actual results may differ from those set forth in this press release due to the risk and uncertainties inherent in our business, including, without limitation: the market for our antenna products is developing and may not develop as we expect; our operating results may fluctuate significantly, including based on seasonal factors, which makes future operating results difficult to predict and could cause our operating results to fall below expectations or guidance; our products are subject to intense competition, including competition from the customers to whom we sell, and competitive pressures from existing and new companies may harm our business, sales, growth rates and market share; our future success depends on our ability to develop and successfully introduce new and enhanced products for the wireless market that meet the needs of our customers; we sell to customers who are extremely price conscious, and a few customers represent a significant portion of our sales, and if we lose any of these customers, our sales could decrease significantly; we rely on a few contract manufacturers to produce and ship all of our products, a single or limited number of suppliers for some components of our products and channel partners to sell and support our products, and the failure to manage our relationships with these parties successfully could adversely affect our ability to market and sell our products; if we cannot protect our intellectual property rights, our competitive position could be harmed or we could incur significant expenses to enforce our rights; and other risks described in our prior press releases and in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including under the heading "Risk Factors" in our final prospectus. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof, and we undertake no obligation to revise or update this press release to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement, which is made under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Airgain's condensed financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA). We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors with which to analyze our operating trends and performance. In computing Adjusted EBITDA, we also exclude stock-based compensation expense, which represents non-cash charges for the fair value of stock options and other non-cash awards granted to employees, as well as the fair market value adjustments for warrants. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company's non-cash operating expenses, we believe that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash expense allows for meaningful comparisons between our core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing us with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own core business operating results over different periods of time.

Our Adjusted EBITDA measure may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Our Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. We do not consider Adjusted EBITDA to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the last table at the end of this release.
