PCTEL Posts $18.3 Million in Fourth Quarter Revenue from Continuing Operations

$76.9 Million in Revenue from Continuing Operations for the Year

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill., Feb 26, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI), a leader in propagation and optimization solutions for the wireless industry, announced results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2008.

The Company completed the sale of its Mobility Solutions Group (MSG) on January 4, 2008. The Company's financial statements reflect MSG as a discontinued operation.

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights - Continuing Operations (excludes MSG)

  • $18.3 million in revenue from continuing operations for the quarter, a decrease of 5% over the same period last year.
  • Gross Profit Margin from continuing operations of 47%, versus 49% fromthe same period last year.
  • GAAP Operating Margin from continuing operations of a negative (87) % as compared to a positive 8% in the same period last year.The operating results of the fourth quarter this year include a $16.7 million impairment of goodwill related to its past acquisitions that comprise its Broadband Technology Group. Without the impairment charge the GAAP operating margin in the current quarter would have been 5%.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Margin from continuing operations of 12% versus15% in the same period last year. The Company's reporting of non-GAAP operating margin excludes expenses for restructuring, gain or loss on sale of assets, stock based compensation, amortization and impairment of intangible assets and goodwill related to the Company's acquisitions.
  • GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $(10.8) million for the quarter, or $(0.61) per diluted share, compared to a net income of $9.5 million, or $0.46 per share for the same period in 2007. The $20 million difference is primarily attributed to the fourth quarter of 2008 including a goodwill impairment of $16.7 million, a $1.7 million decline in Other Income on the Company's investments, primarily related to mark to market losses on the Company's investment in Bank of America's Columbia Strategic Asset Portfolio enhanced cash fund, and a $1.3 million change in the effective tax rate between years.
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $568,000 for the quarter, or $0.03 per diluted share compared to $3.1 million of net income, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the same period in 2007. The Company's reporting of non-GAAP net income excludes expenses for restructuring, gain or loss on sale of assets, stock based compensation, amortization and impairment of intangible assets and goodwill related to the Company's acquisitions, and non-cash related income tax expense. Non-GAAP results do include the performance of our investments, including the mark to market impairment of our investment in Bank of America's Columbia Strategic Asset Portfolio.
  • $78 million of cash, short term investments, and long term investments at December 31, 2008. Our investment in Bank of America's Columbia Strategic Asset Portfolio at December 31, 2008 was $8.6 million, and has been further reduced by $1.4 million through a redemption payment received in January 2009. The Company repurchased 497,000 shares of its common stock during the fourth quarter at an average price of $9.14, completing share buyback programs announced prior to the fourth quarter. The company has not yet purchased any shares under the 1.0 million share buyback program authorized by the Board of Directors in November 2008.

"We are pleased that our efforts to reduce our cost structure have permitted us to deliver double digit non-GAAP operating margin in the last quarter," said Marty Singer, PCTEL's Chairman and CEO. "While the wireless telecom environment is extremely challenging, we have outstanding opportunities to grow organically and through acquisition. Our strong balance sheet will allow us to position PCTEL for long-term growth as the industry emerges from the current economic situation."

This schedule reconciles the company's GAAP operating income and GAAP net income from continuing operations to its non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income from continuing operations. The company believes that presentation of this schedule provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the company's core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The company uses these non-GAAP when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the company's GAAP results.

(a) These adjustments reflect stock based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges and the impairment charges

(b) These adjustments include the items described in footnote (a) as well as the non-cash income tax expense
