CalAmp Reports Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

OXNARD, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2012) - CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 28, 2012. Highlights for the quarter and fiscal year include:

  • Consolidated fourth quarter revenue of $37.6 million, up 30% year over year
  • Consolidated fiscal year revenue of $138.7 million, up 21% year-over-year; with wireless datacom revenue up 26% to $99.1 million
  • Fourth quarter GAAP net income of $1.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share; and Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $2.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share
  • Fiscal year 2012 GAAP net income of $5.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share; and Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $9.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share
  • Net cash from operations for fiscal 2012 of $12.4 million

Commenting on the full year results, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We delivered strong year-over-year revenue growth in fiscal 2012, which translated into consistent bottom line profitability. Our Wireless Datacom business continued its growth trend with solid 26% year-over-year growth, fueled by our technology and product leadership position in Mobile Resource Management applications as well in our industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) verticals. In the satellite business, our operational transformation, coupled with a broadening of the product base, resulted in significant gross margin improvement and positive cash flow for the full year. R&D investments across our businesses resulted in 24 new product introductions during the year that we expect will drive continued growth and market expansion. Finally, the more than $12 million cash generated from operations in fiscal 2012 enabled us to pay down debt and end the year in a net cash position of $2.6 million. I believe our growing profitability and strengthened balance sheet has formed a solid foundation for our future growth and success."

Commenting on the fourth quarter results, Mr. Burdiek stated, "Consolidated revenue grew 30% in the fourth quarter with significant contributions from both of our business segments. Wireless Datacom experienced continued momentum across multiple markets, compensating for the fourth quarter lull that had been anticipated in our Positive Train Control project revenue. And in our Satellite business, revenue more than doubled compared to the fourth quarter last year, supported by a new product roll out in the latest quarter."

Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Results
Total revenue for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter was $37.6 million compared to $28.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, an increase of 30%. Wireless Datacom revenue increased 10% to $25.7 million from $23.4 million in the same period last year, while Satellite revenue more than doubled to $12.0 million from $5.6 million in the same period last year.

Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter was $10.6 million, an increase of $2.2 million over the same period last year as a result of higher revenue. The gross margin percentage of 28.2% in the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter was essentially flat compared to the fourth quarter last year.

GAAP net income for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter was $1.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of last year.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter was $2.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $1.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the same period last year. A reconciliation of the GAAP to the non-GAAP operating results is provided in the table at the end of this press release.

Liquidity
As of February 28, 2012, the Company had total cash of $5.6 million and total debt of $3.0 million, representing a net cash position of $2.6 million. Net cash provided by operating activities during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2012 was $12.4 million, and the unused borrowing capacity on the bank revolver at that date was at full availability of $9.0 million.

Business Outlook
Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr. Burdiek said, "Based on our latest projections, we expect fiscal 2013 first quarter consolidated revenues in the range of $38 to $41 million, with Wireless Datacom revenues up sequentially and satellite revenues flat. We expect fiscal first quarter GAAP basis net income in the range of $0.07 to $0.11 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.10 to $0.14 per diluted share."

Mr. Burdiek continued, "We are entering fiscal 2013 with strength across businesses within core verticals. We will continue to focus and execute on our strategic growth initiatives in energy, usage based insurance applications and rail, as well as international expansion."
