Novatel Wireless Reports Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Results

 IoT Products and Solutions Generate 49% of the Company's Total Fourth Quarter Revenues

DigiCore's Ctrack™ Telematics Solutions Achieve Fourth Quarter Revenue and Profitability Targets

Company Evolves Toward SaaS and Recurring Revenue Solutions, Driving Gross Margin Expansion

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ:MIFI), a leading provider of solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), including software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for the fleet telematics market, announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2015.

"I am excited to announce that Novatel Wireless reached a significant milestone in the fourth quarter, with nearly half of our total revenues generated by our IoT products and solutions, as compared to only 15% at this time last year.  I am particularly pleased with the revenue, profitability and subscriber growth of our Ctrack fleet management solutions, which propelled our non-GAAP gross margins on IoT products and solutions in the fourth quarter to an all-time high of 50%," said Sue Swenson, Chair and CEO of Novatel Wireless. "As we enter 2016, our FW business continues to evolve its portfolio and efforts toward SaaS and other recurring service revenues, while our MiFi® business remains solidly aligned with our core wireless carrier customer who distributes several Novatel Wireless products.  When combined with the global presence of Ctrack's fleet management, stolen vehicle recovery, user-based insurance and asset tracking solutions, I expect the Company's profitability to increase to more than $7 million in quarterly adjusted EBITDA during the second half of the year."

Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

The Company announced the following U.S. GAAP ("GAAP") financial results for the fourth quarter of 2015:

  • Revenue increased by 4.9% to $58.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $55.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.  Revenue from machine-to-machine and other IoT products and solutions (collectively, "IoT products and solutions") increased by 238.1% to $28.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, from $8.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, due to the Company's focus on growing IoT revenues, which included the acquisitions of DigiCore Holdings Limited ("Ctrack") and Feeney Wireless ("FW") during 2015.  Revenue from Ctrack™ solutions was $16.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, driving revenue from IoT products and solutions to 48.9% of the Company's total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to only 15.2% in the fourth quarter of 2014. Revenue from mobile computing products ("MiFi products") was $29.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease of $17.3 million, or 36.8%, from $47.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, primarily resulting from end-of-life or other reduced sales to non-Verizon customers.  Revenues and cost of goods sold in the fourth quarter were both reduced by $4.3 million due to an adjustment of certain FW revenues and cost of goods sold dating back to the Company's acquisition of FW in March 2015.  If not for this adjustment, the Company's revenues would have been $62.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  This adjustment had no impact on the Company's gross profit, income, or any other line item in the Company's financial statements for any quarter or for the full year 2015.

  • Net loss was ($14.4 million), or ($0.27) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to a net loss of ($4.4 million), or ($0.10) per basic share, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2015 included a $2.1 million charge for amortization of the debt discount and debt issuance costs associated with the Company's convertible notes issued in June 2015, $3.0 million of restructuring charges related to the departure of certain executives in the fourth quarter, $5.8 million of charges related to the Company's acquisition activities, including adjustments to inventory valuations based on the fair value of finished goods, estimated contingent earn-out payments and other compensation expense related to the acquisitions, partially offset by a $2.0 million non-cash gain in an acquisition-related escrow account for the purchase of Ctrack.

  • As of December 31, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $12.6 million, an increase from $10.2 million as of September 30, 2015, with no amounts drawn down on its $48 million revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank.

The Company also announced the following non-GAAP financial results for the fourth quarter of 2015.  A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the Company's GAAP financial results is included in the tables accompanying this news release:

  • Non-GAAP gross profit increased by 56.1% to $20.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, from $13.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, driven by a combination of increased IoT revenue and increased gross margins from the Company's IoT products and solutions. Overall non-GAAP gross margin increased to 35.4% in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 23.8% in the fourth quarter of 2014, as the Company continues its transition toward an improved mix of higher margin IoT offerings. Non-GAAP gross margin on IoT products and solutions increased to 49.6% in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 26.0% in the fourth quarter of 2014, primarily driven by non-GAAP gross margins of 60.5% from the Company's recently-acquired Ctrack telematics solutions.  Non-GAAP gross margin on MiFi products decreased to 21.9% in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 23.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014, as a result of lower margins from the sales of legacy products.  In the fourth quarter of 2015, gross margin was positively impacted by the $4.3 million adjustment of certain FW revenues and cost of goods sold mentioned above.  If not for this adjustment, the Company's overall non-GAAP gross margin would have been 33.0% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

  • Non-GAAP operating expenses increased to $22.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $12.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 80.3%, due to the acquisition and integration of Ctrack and FW in 2015.  The Company has undertaken cost containment measures to partially offset this increase in non-GAAP operating expenses, including two reductions-in-force and a closure of the Company's Richardson, TX, facility since August 2015 that, among other cost savings, have eliminated 88 full and part-time employees and contractors across the Company.

  • Adjusted EBITDA declined to ($0.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, as the Company continues to integrate its two acquisitions from 2015.  Despite the devaluation of the South African Rand against the U.S. dollar by more than 10% over the course of the fourth quarter, adjusted EBITDA contributed by Ctrack was at the high end of our guidance range, at $2.5 million in the fourth quarter, as the Company continues to evolve its cost structure and activities toward higher margin SaaS and services solutions.

  • Non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2015 was ($2.3 million), or ($0.04) per share, compared to $0.3 million, or $0.01 per fully-diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2014, as the Company continues to integrate its two acquisitions from 2015.

Recent Highlights

The Company's business and organizational highlights since the beginning of the fourth quarter include:

  • Today, the Company signed a definitive asset purchase agreement to sell its telematics hardware business to Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc., for a total purchase price of $24 million.  The Company will receive $12 million in cash upon the closing of the transaction and will receive two payments of $6 million on each of the first and second anniversaries of the date of completion of the transaction.  In addition, the Company and Micronet will enter into a manufacturing and supply agreement whereby the Company will agree to purchase products from Micronet following the close of the transaction.  A separate press release was issued by the Company today pertaining to this transaction.

  • On January 19, 2016, the Company announced a new, advanced telematics solution optimized for the emerging car-sharing sector in Europe, with options such as driver ID and authorization for keyless vehicle access. The Ctrack solution has been deployed in pilot programs by a leading automobile manufacturer and ride-share service operators.

  • On January 4, 2016, the Nevada Highway Patrol selected an IoT bundled solution of FW-managed monthly service offerings and FW's newly-launched Skyus X™ in-vehicle router for wireless connectivity.  The solution is outfitted with NetMotion Wireless' Mobility application and is designed to deliver secure and reliable wireless communication to law enforcement and enterprise fleets.

  • During the fourth quarter, Ctrack fleet management solutions were selected by small and medium-sized businesses in the United Kingdom for advanced vehicle tracking services. Clymac, a leading provider of fire detection and security systems, and Acorn Analytics, an environmental and asbestos consultation firm, are among those that added Ctrack solutions to their fleets in an effort to control costs and increase employee productivity.

  • Mercedes Benz South Africa selected Ctrack on November 1, 2015 to be the preferred supplier of stolen vehicle recovery units for every commercial vehicle sold with Mercedes Benz's Fleetboard telematics device. An optional dashboard camera solution provided by Ctrack also will be offered to all Mercedes Benz South Africa commercial clients.

  • Ctrack was selected to provide a custom solution for KLM Equipment Services ("KLM") at the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, providing a platform that different companies and KLM departments at the airport can use to manage employee access to equipment. This custom solution utilizes identification software and Ctrack GPS units to ensure that only approximately 5,000 of the 60,000 airport employees have access to KLM's equipment. In addition, KLM can use a desktop computer, smartphone or tablet to track the location of specific equipment, resulting in more efficient use of KLM's airport vehicles.  The access card registration system also records the length of time each employee uses the equipment, enabling automatic invoicing.

  • On October 5, 2015, the Company closed its acquisition of Ctrack, with its Ctrack SaaS offerings for the fleet management, user-based insurance, and asset tracking and monitoring markets. The acquisition added Ctrack's subscribers to the Company's growing SaaS base, while significantly increasing the Company's global footprint to over 50 countries spanning six continents.

  • Sue Swenson was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the Company on October 27, 2015, replacing Alex Mashinsky. Ms. Swenson has been a member of the Company's Board of Directors since 2012 and has served as Chair of the Board since 2014.  Ms. Swenson brings decades of leadership experience and operational expertise in the wireless technologies industry, with prior service as president and COO of PacTel Cellular (which later became part of AirTouch Cellular), CEO and president of Cellular One, president of Leap Wireless, COO of T-Mobile USA, COO of Amp'd Mobile, and CEO of Sage, North America.  Ms. Swenson is Chair of FirstNet and also sits on a number of other boards including those of Harmonic, Spirent Plc and Wells Fargo.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the information presented in this news release may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and often contain words such as "may," "estimate," "anticipate," "believe," "expect," "intend," "plan," "project," "will" and similar words and phrases indicating future results. The information presented in this news release related to our outlook for the first quarter ending March 31, 2016, future demand for our products, the expected impact of acquisition activity, the anticipated cost savings from our restructuring actions, including statements made by Sue Swenson, as well as other statements that are not purely statements of historical fact, are forward-looking in nature. These forward-looking statements are made on the basis of management's current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. We therefore cannot guarantee future results, performance or achievements. Actual results could differ materially from our expectations.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company's expectations are set forth as risk factors in the Company's SEC reports and filings and include (1) the future demand for wireless broadband access to data, (2) the growth of wireless wide-area networking, (3) changes in commercially adopted wireless transmission standards and technologies including 3G and 4G standards, (4) continued customer and end-user acceptance of the Company's current product and service offerings and market demand for the Company's anticipated new product and service offerings, (5) increased competition and pricing pressure from participants in the markets in which the Company is engaged, (6) dependence on third party manufacturers in Asia and key component suppliers worldwide, (7) the Company's ability to successfully integrate FW, Ctrack and any other businesses, products, technologies or personnel that we may acquire in the future, (8) unexpected liabilities or expenses, (9) the Company's ability to introduce new products and services in a timely manner, (10) litigation, regulatory and IP developments related to our products or components of our products, (11) dependence on a small number of customers, (12) the effect of changes in accounting standards and in aspects of our critical accounting policies and (13) the Company's plans and expectations relating to acquisitions, strategic relationships, international expansion, software and hardware developments, personnel matters and cost containment initiatives.

These factors, as well as other factors described in the reports filed by the Company with the SEC (available at www.sec.gov), could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the Company's forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason, even if new information becomes available or other events occur in the future, except as otherwise required pursuant to applicable law and our on-going reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Novatel Wireless, Inc. has provided in this news release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share exclude restructuring charges, share-based compensation expense, a non-cash change in an acquisition-related escrow account that was used for the purchase of Ctrack, a non-cash change in fair value of a Company-issued warrant to purchase common stock in 2014, losses related to shareholder litigation resolved in 2014, charges related the Company's one-time all-employee 2014 retention bonus plan, a 2014 refund from an acquisition-related escrow account from the acquisition of Enfora, Inc. in 2010, amortization of the debt discount and debt issuance costs associated with the Company's convertible notes, and charges related to the Company's acquisition activities, including adjustments to inventory valuations based on the fair value of finished goods, estimated contingent earn-out payments and other compensation expense related to the acquisitions. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (unrelated to acquisitions and the convertible notes).

Non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be used in isolation and, moreover, they should not be considered as a substitute for gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, net loss, net loss per share or any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We present non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share because we consider each to be an important supplemental measure of our performance.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to make operational decisions, evaluate the Company's performance, prepare forecasts and determine compensation. Further, management believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. The stock-based compensation expenses are expected to vary depending on the number of new grants issued to both current and new employees and changes in the Company's stock price, stock market volatility, expected option life and risk-free interest rates, all of which are difficult to estimate. In calculating non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share, management excludes certain non-cash and one-time items in order to facilitate comparability of the Company's operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such expenses are not, in management's view, related to the Company's ongoing operating performance. Management uses this view of the Company's operating performance for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources.

The Company further believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in providing greater transparency to the information used by management in its operational decision-making. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share also facilitates a comparison of our underlying operating performance with that of other companies in our industry, which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.

Calculations of non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share have limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider these measures in isolation or as substitutes for GAAP metrics. In the future, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items in the presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Investors and potential investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. The limitations of relying on non-GAAP financial measures include, but are not limited to, the fact that other companies, including other companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative tool.

Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures contained within this news release with our GAAP financial results.
