Novatel Wireless Reports Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenues Increase 25% From Third Quarter of 2014

Company Exceeds Profitability Targets; Establishes Foundation for Growth in 2015

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Novatel Wireless (Nasdaq:MIFI), a leading provider of solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and inventors of MiFi® technology, announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014.

The Company announced the following GAAP results for the fourth quarter of 2014:

  • Revenue increased by 24.9% to $55.4 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $44.3 million in the third quarter of 2014. Revenue from mobile computing products was $47.0 million in the fourth quarter, compared with $34.8 million in the third quarter of 2014. Revenue from M2M products was $8.4 million in the fourth quarter compared to $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2014.
     
  • Net loss was ($4.4 million), or ($0.10) basic net loss per share, in the fourth quarter compared to a net loss of ($8.8 million), or ($0.23) basic net loss per share, in the third quarter of 2014. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2014 included charges of $0.3 million for restructuring activities, $0.8 million for the final payment by the Company in its shareholder litigation, $0.4 million for recognition of a beneficial conversion feature on convertible preferred stock that converted to common stock in the quarter, and $5.5 million related to an all-employee retention bonus plan adopted in 2014 as part of the Company's turnaround efforts. The net loss for the fourth quarter also included a $1.5 million gain associated with the change in fair value of a Company-issued warrant to purchase common stock, and a $1.6 million gain from an escrow account refund related to a historic acquisition (net of claims against the escrow account).

"We successfully executed our strategy in the fourth quarter to leverage our MiFi® business into a return to profitability, with enhanced product sales and rationalized expenses," said Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Novatel Wireless. "We anticipate continued growth in 2015, as we expect to increase our MiFi revenues by more than 20% compared to 2014. Also, as we commence 2015, we are focused squarely on enhancing our leadership in the expanding IoT ecosystem. Demand continues to build for our innovative IoT solutions, and we are excited about our prospects to drive sales growth throughout 2015 with our robust IoT technology. We expect to achieve double-digit organic growth in IoT revenue in 2015, with acquisition activity also anticipated to increase our IoT business into volumes more closely aligned with our MiFi business volumes by year-end."

The Company also announced the following non-GAAP results for the fourth quarter of 2014. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures is included in the tables accompanying this news release:

  • Non-GAAP gross profit increased by 24.5% to $13.2 million in the fourth quarter, from $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2014, with relatively flat non-GAAP gross margin of 23.8% in the fourth quarter compared to 23.9% in the third quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP gross margin on mobile computing products was 23.4% in the fourth quarter, compared to 23.1% in the third quarter of 2014, and non-GAAP gross margin on M2M products was 26.0% in the fourth quarter, compared to 26.6% in the third quarter of 2014.
       
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses remained relatively flat at $12.7 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $12.8 million in the third quarter of 2014.
       
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $1.8 million in the fourth quarter compared to $(0.6 million) in the third quarter of 2014. This improvement was driven by increased revenue in the fourth quarter combined with ongoing expense discipline. Adjusted EBITDA excludes restructuring charges, the final payment by the Company in its shareholder litigation, the recognition of a beneficial conversion feature on convertible preferred stock that converted to common stock in the quarter, accruals related to an all-employee retention bonus plan adopted in 2014 as part of the Company's turnaround efforts, a gain associated with a change in fair value of a Company-issued warrant to purchase common stock, a refund from an escrow account related to a historic acquisition (net of claims against the escrow account), share-based compensation expense, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. 
       
  • Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per fully-diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($2.4 million), or ($0.06) per share, in the third quarter of 2014. As with adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income improved during the fourth quarter due primarily to the Company's revenue growth combined with ongoing expense discipline. Non-GAAP net income excludes the same items as adjusted EBITDA, except it includes interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (unrelated to acquisitions).

Quarterly Highlights

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

  • On January 7, 2015, the Company introduced the MT 1200, a competitively-priced mobile tracking telematics solution for fleet management, usage-based insurance and other connected vehicle applications. Designed to simplify integration and use, the compact MT 1200 offers "tried and true" vehicle tracking and driver behavior monitoring features combined with an open platform option and a best-in-class user experience designed for swift integration and efficient management. The MT 1200 supports GPRS, CDMA2000® 1xRTT, and HSDPA technologies.
       
  • The Company's award-winning line of MiFi-powered SA 2100 LTE IoT gateways for telemetry and telematics was certified by Verizon Wireless for AWS/Band 4 LTE and support for Private Network. This was the third Novatel Wireless AWS/Band 4 solution certified through Verizon Wireless since the network enabled AWS/Band 4 earlier in 2014.
       
  • In November, the Company was named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for the Verizon 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi® 6620L, the most powerful hotspot ever. Products entered in this prestigious program were judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories. The global-ready MiFi 6620L mobile hotspot is the first Verizon Wireless Jetpack® that connects up to 15 devices to the Verizon XLTE network supporting up to 20 hours of use on a single charge, and has received accolades and awards from a number of industry outlets.
       
  • The Company strengthened its global distribution network and customer base, supplying IoT solutions internationally. In the fourth quarter, the Company announced distribution agreements in the Middle East with Server Corner GlobalTech and NOMD Telecom, and in February, the Company announced an extended agreement with GPS Chile, offering telematics solutions throughout the region.
       
  • In December, the Company's MT 3060 OBD II telematics solution for Chipin's "Fairzekering" usage-based insurance offering was awarded Most Innovative Solution by two separate prestigious programs in the Netherlands: The Accenture Innovation Awards and the Generali AM Innovation Awards.
       
  • On October 31, 2014, the Company obtained a $25.0 million revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank. The credit facility provides the Company with enhanced capital flexibility for its growth initiatives and general corporate purposes.
       
  • The Company strengthened its leadership team in the fourth quarter. In October, the Company announced the appointment to the Company's Board of Directors of Philip Falcone, Chairman and CEO of Harbinger Group Inc., and Robert Pons, Executive Vice President of Business Development of HC2. In November, Alex Mashinsky was appointed permanent CEO of the Company, after having served as interim CEO since June 13, 2014.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the information presented in this 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 release related to our outlook for the Company's first quarter ending March 31, 2015, future demand for our products and the expected impact of acquisition activity, the quotation of Alex Mashinsky, 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. The Company therefore cannot guarantee future results, performance or achievements. Actual results could differ materially from the Company's expectations.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from Novatel Wireless' 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 products and market demand for the Company's anticipated new product offerings, (5) increased competition and pricing pressure from current or future wireless market participants, (6) dependence on third party manufacturers in Asia and key component suppliers worldwide, (7) unexpected liabilities or expenses, (8) the Company's ability to introduce new products in a timely manner, (9) litigation, regulatory and IP developments related to our products or component parts of our products, (10) dependence on a small number of customers, (11) the effect of changes in accounting standards and in aspects of our critical accounting policies and (12) 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. Novatel Wireless 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 has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share exclude restructuring charges, the final payment by the Company in its shareholder litigation, the recognition of a beneficial conversion feature on convertible preferred stock that converted to common stock in the quarter, accruals related to an all-employee retention bonus plan adopted in 2014 as part of the Company's turnaround efforts, a gain associated with a change in fair value of a Company-issued warrant to purchase common stock, a refund from an escrow account related to a historic acquisition (net of claims against the escrow account), share-based compensation expenses, and amortization of intangibles associated with a historic acquisition. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.

Non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net income (loss) and net income (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 net income, diluted earnings per share, operating expenses, gross margin or any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We present non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net income (loss) and net income (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 income (loss) and net income (loss) per share, management excludes restructuring charges and other 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 review, related to the Company's ongoing operating performance. Management uses this view of its operating performance for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources.

We further believe 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. We believe that the use of non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share also facilitates a comparison of Novatel Wireless' underlying operating performance with that of other companies in our industry, which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.

Calculating non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net income (loss) and net income (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, we expect 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. Limitations in 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 non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with our GAAP financial results.
