Digital Ally, Inc. Announces 2014 Operating Results and Provides 2015 Guidance

Fourth Quarter Revenue Increases 55% to $5.4 Million vs. $3.5 Million in Prior-Year Period

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2015) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced its operating results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014. An investor conference call is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. EDT tomorrow, March 24, 2015 (see details below).

The Company also provided preliminary financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2015. Based upon information currently available, the Company believes that its 2015 revenue should increase to approximately $25 million and that operating income should approximate $2.5 million, absent any unanticipated non-recurring expenses.

Highlights for Year Ended December 31, 2014

  • Total revenue decreased 2% to approximately $17.4 million in 2014, compared with approximately $17.8 million in the year ended December 31, 2013. Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased 55% to approximately $5.4 million, versus revenue of approximately $3.5 million in the final three months of the previous year. 
  • Gross profit margin improved slightly to 56.9% of total revenue in 2014, compared with 56.7% in 2013. For the fourth quarter of 2014, gross margin improved to 59.3% of revenue, representing a significant improvement over the prior-year quarter, when the gross margin was over 900 basis points lower at 49.9% of revenue.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 4% from year-earlier levels.
  • The Company reported an operating loss of ($2,889,194) for the full year 2014, compared with an operating loss of ($2,250,442) in the previous year. However, the operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2014 was reduced by 79% to ($336,833), when compared with an operating loss of ($1,573,958) in the prior-year period.
  • A net loss of ($9,163,261), or ($3.54) per share, was recorded in the year ended December 31, 2014, compared with a net loss of ($2,497,940), or ($1.17) per share, in 2013. Approximately $5.8 million, or 87% of the year-over-year increase in net loss in 2014 (vs. 2013), was attributable to non-cash charges related to warrant derivative liabilities and changes in the fair value of secured convertible notes payable, along with note payable issuance expenses.
  • On a non-GAAP basis, the Company recorded an adjusted net loss of ($1,440,738), or ($0.56) per share, in 2014, compared with a non-GAAP adjusted net loss of ($877,052), or ($0.41) per share, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2013. For the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company reported non-GAAP net income of $146,846, or $0.05 per diluted share, versus a non-GAAP net loss of ($1,116,204), or ($0.50) per share in the year-earlier period.
  • Shipments of the new DVM-800 digital in-car video system, which has become the Company's "flagship" product after being introduced in the fourth quarter of 2013, accounted for 40% of the Company's total sales in the year 2014.
  • Shipments of the FirstVU HD body cameras generated 11% of the Company's total sales in the full year 2014, versus 3% in the previous year. FirstVU HD revenue increased to approximately 17% of total fourth quarter 2015 revenue.
  • As of December 31, 2014, over 800 law enforcement agencies were testing and evaluating more than 1,200 of the Company's body-worn cameras. The Company has experienced a substantial increase in police department interest in its body camera products since widely publicized social unrest erupted in Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014.
  • The Company received its initial patent on the VuLink connectivity system, which allows Digital Ally's in-car video systems and its FirstVU HD body cameras to work seamlessly together in gathering and recording evidence collection activities for law enforcement agencies.
  • The Company expanded its video evidence storage and management solutions to include its VuVault.net cloud-based storage solution in the fourth quarter of 2014. This new product gives Digital Ally a competitive advantage by providing cloud storage for the FirstVU HD body camera and in-car video systems that can be synchronized to operate simultaneously using its patented VuLink product.

Management Comments

"While our revenue decreased slightly in 2014, we are pleased to report that sales strengthened considerably towards the end of the year," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "Fourth quarter revenue increased 55% from prior-year levels, to $5.4 million, representing the strongest three-month period in the past twelve quarters. The strengthening in sales during the second half of 2014 was likely related to increased interest in video evidence collection and storage among law enforcement agencies following the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, along with our legal actions to stop a competitor, Utility Associates, from sending letters to our customers that unfairly disparaged our products. For the year 2014 as a whole, while we reported a greater net loss due primarily to non-cash charges related to warrant derivative issues and changes in the fair value of convertible notes payable, we are very pleased to note that non-GAAP adjusted net income (defined later in this release) in the fourth quarter improved to $146,846, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of ($1,116,204) in the prior-year period."

"We have seen a large increase in inquiries, requests for test and evaluation units and pilot programs being conducted by police departments since the events in Ferguson last August. We are optimistic this will result in higher sales in 2015 as existing and potential customers evaluate our body-worn and in-car video camera solutions. Our patented VuLink connectivity device is also generating great interest among law enforcement agencies that recognize the value of collecting video evidence of interactions between officers and the public from multiple perspectives."

"Demand for our FirstVU HD body-worn cameras has increased at a faster pace than the current capacity of suppliers of certain components, but we have taken steps to address this issue. We are confident that we are well-positioned to ramp up production to meet expected demand in the coming months. With the introduction of our VuVault.net cloud-based video evidence storage and management solution in the third quarter of 2014, we are now prepared to satisfy the video evidence needs of virtually any law enforcement agency, regardless of whether it wants storage in the cloud or desires to maintain evidence on its own servers."

"The DVM-800 in-car video system and FirstVU HD body-worn camera, which were introduced in 2013, contributed 51% of total sales during 2014, compared with 5% in the previous fiscal year," continued Ross. "We expect our sales mix to continue to migrate from the legacy DVM-500 Plus and DVM-750 product lines to the newer products in 2015. Our MicroVU HD in-car video system was named a 'product of the year' at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference last fall. We are commencing commercial production of the MicroVU HD this month."

"While international revenue decreased to $961,763 last year, from $1,159,183 in 2013, international bidding activity has picked up in recent months. We believe that our new products, particularly the DVM-800, FirstVU HD and MicroVU HD, may appeal to our international customers. While we are optimistic in this regard, international sales cycles generally are longer than is the case with domestic business."

"We entered 2015 with a stronger balance sheet and greater liquidity, which should be able to support a significantly higher level of product sales and shipments if anticipated orders are forthcoming," added Ross. "Unrestricted cash and equivalents totaled $3.0 million at December 31, 2014, compared with less than $0.5 million a year earlier, and since the end of 2014 another $1.5 million in previously restricted cash has become unrestricted. We had approximately $6.9 million in net working capital available at the end of 2014, including $3.0 million of accounts receivable and $9.2 million of inventory. We believe inventory levels can be reduced during 2015 to provide additional funding for operations, but no assurances can be given in this regard."

"The civil unrest in several American cities during 2014 has greatly elevated the level of priority that law enforcement agencies now place upon audio/video evidence collection and storage capabilities, and we believe this will translate into growth in demand for body-worn cameras and in-car video systems. We are confident that Digital Ally has developed the most robust line of video solutions for law enforcement and commercial customers."

"We look to 2015 with a high degree of optimism. We are seeing steady improvement in our domestic and international law enforcement channels, as well as in our commercial fleet business. Based upon information currently available, we believe that 2015 revenue should increase to approximately $25 million and that operating income should approximate $2.5 million, absent any unanticipated non-recurring expenses. We are not forecasting net income or earnings per share at this time because of the unpredictability and volatility of the financial derivatives related to the Company's convertible notes and warrants exercisable to purchase its common stock. Further, our quarterly operating results may not demonstrate an even progression toward achieving our 2015 guidance because of the volatility of our revenue," concluded Ross.

2014 Operating Results

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2014, the Company's total revenue declined 2% to approximately $17.4 million, compared with revenue of approximately $17.8 million in the twelve months ended December 31, 2013. Revenue was negatively impacted during the first half of 2014 due to the actions of Utility Associates, Inc. in sending threatening letters to Digital Ally customers and potential customers and the overall challenging economy that continued to affect state, county and municipal government budgets that fund law enforcement agencies. However, revenue improved during the second half of 2014, which was likely attributable to the increased attention to the benefits of video collection, storage and management solutions following the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Digital Ally's legal actions to stop Utility's negative letter-writing campaign and to recover damages from Utility caused by its actions. The increase in revenue reflects market acceptance of new products and included an order in excess of $1.0 million from a large state police contract customer for DVM-800 in-car video systems. 

International revenue decreased to $961,763 in 2014, versus $1,159,183 in 2013.

Gross profit declined 2% to $9,922,793 (56.9% of revenue) in 2014, versus $10,108,490 (56.7% of revenue) in 2013. The Company's goal remains to improve its gross margins to approximately 60% of revenue based on the expected margins of newer products, particularly the DVM-800, FirstVU HD and MicroVU HD, if they gain traction in the marketplace and commercial production increases in 2015.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased 4% to $12,811,987 in the 2014, versus $12,358,932 a year earlier. Research and Development costs declined 21% to $2,905,407 (vs. $3,669,022 in 2013), due to higher prior-year spending on the development and introduction of the DVM-800 and FirstVU HD products. While the Company introduced the VuLink, VuVault.net, and MicroVU HD products during 2014 and early 2015, it had absorbed a portion of the development costs for these products in prior periods. This helped the Company reduce the number of engineers employed by approximately 27% between December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2014. Further, an in-car video project that utilized contract engineers was discontinued in 2014. Selling, advertising and promotional expense rose 24% to $3,340,764, compared with $2,699,884 in 2013. The Company hired additional territory salesmen during the last half of 2013 to provide better coverage of the domestic market, contributing to a higher effective commission rate and overall selling costs during 2014. Promotional and advertising expense increased due to expanded advertising in trade publications and other marketing initiatives designed to further penetrate new commercial markets for the DVM-250 Plus event recorders, introduce the FirstVU HD, and develop awareness of the DVM-800 during 2014. Stock-based compensation expense increased 18% in 2014 to $834,593 (vs. $705,612), primarily due to the amortization of restricted stock granted to officers, directors and other employees in 2014. Professional fees and related expenses rose 91% to $1,153,985 last year, compared with $603,375 a year earlier, primarily due to higher litigation expenses. Executive, support and administrative staff payroll expenses declined slightly to $2,012,552 in the most recent year, compared with $2,058,839 a year earlier, due primarily to cost-containment measures implemented during 2014. Litigation charges of $208,316 were accrued during 2013, whereas no such charges were accrued in 2014. Other SG&A expenses rose 6% to $2,564,686 in the year ended December 31, 2014, primarily due to increased amortization expense in 2014 as patents and trademarks that were no longer active or being pursued were expensed.

The Company reported an operating loss of ($2,889,194) for 2014, compared with an operating loss of ($2,250,442) in the previous year.

Interest income increased to $13,660 in the twelve months ended December 31, 2014, versus $11,390 a year earlier. 

Non-cash charges of $5,203,328 were incurred in 2014 to reflect changes in fair value of the note payable and derivatives associated with the conversion of a $2.0 million senior secured convertible note into common stock and the exercise of associated warrants, along with fair value of the note payable and derivatives related to the $4.0 million senior secured convertible note that was issued in August 2014. No such derivative charges were incurred in 2013.

In 2014, the Company incurred $579,066 in expenses associated with the issuance of the $2.0 million and $4.0 million senior secured convertible notes. No such charges were incurred in the previous year. 

Other expense totaled ($5,589) in 2014, compared with other income of $19,073 in 2013.

Interest expense totaled $499,744 and $277,961 during 2014 and 2013, respectively. The increase in interest expense reflects additional indebtedness incurred during March and August 2014.

The Company reported a 2014 net loss of ($9,163,261), or ($3.54) per share, compared with a prior-year net loss of ($2,497,940), or ($1.17) per share. No income tax provision or benefit was recorded in the third quarters of either 2014 or 2013. Approximately $5.8 million, or 87% of the year-over-year increase in net loss in 2014 (vs. 2013), was attributable to non-cash charges related to warrant derivative liabilities and changes in the fair value of senior secured convertible notes payable, along with note payable issuance expenses. 

The Company expects to continue to maintain a full valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets, including net operating loss carry forwards, until it determines that it can sustain a level of profitability that demonstrates its ability to realize such assets. During 2014, the Company increased its valuation reserve on deferred tax assets by approximately $4.7 million. As of December 31, 2014, the Company had approximately $18.8 million of net operating loss carryforwards and $1.6 million of research and development tax credit carryforwards available to offset future net taxable income. 

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported an adjusted net loss (before, depreciation, amortization, interest expense, changes in derivative liabilities, litigation charges and related expenses, change in the fair value of senior secured convertible notes, senior secured convertible note issuance expenses, and stock-based compensation), of ($1,440,738), or ($0.56) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2014, versus a non-GAAP adjusted net loss of ($877,052), or ($0.41) per diluted share, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2013. (Non-GAAP adjusted net income / loss is described in greater detail in a table at the end of this press release).

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

For the three-month period ended December 31, 2014, the Company's total revenue increased 55% to approximately $5.4 million, compared with revenue of approximately $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of the previous year. International revenue increased to $721,202 in the most recent quarter, versus $94,763 in the prior-year quarter.

Gross profit rose 84% to $3,211,532 (59.3% of revenue) in the fourth quarter of 2014, versus $1,749,422 (49.9% of revenue) in the corresponding period of the previous year. The increase was commensurate with the 55% improvement in total revenue and the 9.4 percentage point increase in gross profit margin.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased 7% to $3,548,365 in the final quarter of 2014, versus $3,323,380 a year earlier. Research and Development costs decreased 28% to $700,915 in the most recent quarter, compared with $977,538 in the comparable 2013 period. Selling, advertising and promotional expense rose 45% to $1,010,314, compared with $697,107 in the fourth quarter of the prior year. Stock-based compensation expense rose 81% to $257,729, compared with $142,123 in the year-earlier period due primarily to the amortization of restricted stock granted in 2014 to the Company's officers, directors and other employees. Litigation charges of $208,316 were accrued during the fourth quarter of 2013, whereas no such charges were accrued in 2014. General and administrative expense increased 22% to $1,579,407, compared with $1,298,296 in the corresponding period of the previous year.

The Company's operating loss of ($336,833) for the three months ended December 31, 2014, represented a 79% improvement when compared with an operating loss of ($1,573,958) in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Interest income declined to $1,248 in the quarter ended December 31, 2014, versus $2,016 in the year-earlier quarter. 

The Company incurred non-cash charges of $396,064 in the fourth quarter of 2014 to reflect changes in fair value of the note payable and derivatives associated with the conversion of a $2.0 million senior secured convertible note into common stock and the exercise of associated warrants, along with fair value of the note payable and derivatives related to the $4.0 million senior secured convertible note that was issued in August 2014. No such derivative charges were incurred in the fourth quarter of 2013.

In the final three months of 2014, the Company incurred $13,115 in expenses associated with the issuance of senior secured convertible notes. No such charges were incurred in the year-earlier period. 

Other expense of $2,136 was recorded in the three months ended December 31, 2014, compared with other expense of $1,627 in the prior-year quarter.

Interest expense totaled $154,215 and $65,080 during the three months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The increase in interest expense reflects additional indebtedness incurred during August 2014.

The Company reported a net loss of ($901,115), or ($0.30) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared with a net loss of ($1,638,649), or ($0.74) per share, in the prior-year period. No income tax provision or benefit was recorded in the fourth quarter of either 2014 or 2013. 

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported adjusted net income (before, depreciation, amortization, interest expense, litigation charges and related expenses, changes in derivative liabilities, change in fair value of senior secured convertible notes, senior secured convertible note issuance expenses, and stock-based compensation), of $146,846, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2014, versus a non-GAAP adjusted net loss of ($1,116,204), or ($0.50) per share, in the three months ended December 31, 2013.
