MONTVALE, N.J., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQCM: MICT), a developer and manufacturer that integrates and globally markets rugged computers, tablets and computer-based systems for the commercial Mobile Resource Management (MRM) market and for the defense and aerospace markets, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

David Lucatz, Chief Executive Officer of Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. stated, "During the quarter, we experienced a decline in our sales, mainly as a result of reduced sales to our major MRM client. However, our continuing efforts to penetrate new customers and new market verticals are very encouraging by the recent orders received from new customers and the successful entry into new verticals such as school buses in the U.S. (local fleets, the largest growing vertical) and others. In addition, we are in the process of penetrating new geographies such as Mexico and Chile, in which we have already been successful in introducing our products to certain local customers."  

Mr. Lucatz continued, "The recently announced pending acquisition of the MRM division of Beijer Electronics in Salt Lake City, Utah, will enable us to establish a strong U.S. sales and marketing base while offering a wide range of MRM tablets, including our recently introduced Android-based A 300 series family of tablets, supporting a variety of applications and verticals. In addition, Beijer Electronics will broaden and diversify our customer base."

"On a stand-alone basis, Beijer generated sales for 2013 of approximately $11M annually. Going forward, we strongly believe that the successful integration of both companies' operations will accelerate our growth and position us as a significant supplier in this multi-billion dollar market."

First Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights:

  • Total revenue was $5.6 million, compared to $10.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. The decline in revenue attributed to reduced sales to our major client, is expected to increase in the second half of 2014 including Beijer's revenues that will be fully integrated at that same period of time.
  • Gross profit is $2.1 million, compared to $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2013. Gross margin is 37%, compared to 35% in the first quarter of 2013.
  • R&D expenses are $744,000 (includes $146,000 grant from the Israeli Office of the Chief Scientist), compared to $709,000 in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Operating loss are $60,000, compared to operating income of $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2013. The operating loss is mainly due to decline in revenues.
  • GAAP net loss for the first quarter is $185,000, compared to net income of $212,000 for the same period last year.
  • GAAP net loss per share for the first quarter are $0.06, based on 5.8 million shares on a diluted basis, compared to GAAP net loss of $0.13, based on 3.5 million shares on a diluted basis, in the first quarter last year.
  • Non-GAAP net loss is $270,000 for the first quarter, compared to non-GAAP net income of $726,000 in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS is $(0.05) loss per share based on 5.8 million diluted shares compared to $0.18 income per share, based on 3.9 million shares on a diluted basis last year.
  • Balance sheet: Cash and marketable securities were $18.9 million at March 31, 2014 as compared to $19.8 million at December 31, 2013. Current ratio of 3:1 on March 31, 2014.
  • Total debt decreased to $8.4 million as of March 31, 2014 from $9.1 million as of December 31, 2013.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided below. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Mr. Lucatz concluded: "Beyond the MRM/FM segments, we are committed to maintaining a strong presence and an ample backlog of business in the Aerospace and Defense segment. During the last quarter, we announced a new $2.6 million project for the development and supply of a generic computer-based test, diagnosis and simulation system designated to support a vast range of advanced missile defense systems. Looking forward, we see ongoing demand in the Aerospace and Defense segment, and we expect to announce new orders in this space in the coming months."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP)", we provide additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP ("non-GAAP"). Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate our financial performance.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in our business, as they exclude expenses and gains that are not reflective of our ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of our GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.

The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them from non-GAAP financial measures, are outlined below:

  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets - We are required to amortize the intangible assets, included in our GAAP financial statements, related to the acquisition of Micronet. The amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and term of its related amortization are unique to the Acquisition. The amortization of acquired intangible assets are non-cash charges. We believe that such changes do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-acquisition operating results.
  • Amortization of UTA's note discount and related expenses - These interest expenses are non-cash and are related to amortization of discount of certain notes held by UTA Capital LLC. Such expenses do not reflect our on-going operations and most of them will be incurred up to the end of fiscal 2014.
  • Change in fair value of call options and warrants – The change in fair value of the call options relating to the Acquisition is recorded as interest expense. The change in fair value is derived primarily from Micronet's share price and does not reflect our on-going operations. 
  • Stock-based compensation is share based awards granted to certain individuals. They are non-cash and affected by our historical stock prices which are irrelevant to forward-looking analyses and are not necessarily linked to  our operational performance.

The following table reconciles, for the periods presented, GAAP net loss attributable to Micronet Enertec to non-GAAP net income attributable to Micronet Enertec and GAAP loss per diluted share attributable to Micronet Enertec to non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to Micronet Enertec:
