PCTEL Posts $13.7 Million in Third Quarter Revenue from Continuing Operations

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill., Oct 29, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCTI), a leader in propagation and optimization solutions for the wireless industry, announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009.

Third Quarter Financial Highlights - Continuing Operations

  • $13.7 million in revenue from continuing operations for the quarter, a decrease of 32% over the same period last year.
  • GAAP & Non-GAAP Gross Profit Margin from continuing operations of 47%, as compared to 48% for the same period last year.
  • GAAP Operating Margin from continuing operations of a negative (6)% as compared to a positive 3% in the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Margin from continuing operations of 3% 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 $(757,000) for the quarter, or $(0.04) per share, compared to a net income of $11.1 million, or $0.60 per diluted share for the same period in 2008. The results from the third quarter last year include a $10 million benefit to the tax provision related to the reversal of a valuation allowance that the company had carried on its deferred tax assets.
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $669,000 for the quarter, or $0.04 per diluted share compared to $2.6 million of net income, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the same period in 2008. 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.
  • $78 million of cash, short term investments, and long term investments at September 30, 2009. The Company repurchased approximately 153,000 shares of its common stock during the third quarter at an average price of $6.12. The company has approximately $3.5 million remaining under previously authorized share repurchase programs.

"Our modest sequential quarterly revenue increase from Q2's $13.4 million revenue level was a significant accomplishment given the dramatic decline in state and local public safety programs and the depressed carrier spending on wireless networks," said Marty Singer, PCTEL's Chairman and CEO. "As we enter our fourth quarter, we are seeing improved booking activity compared with that in Q3. On the antenna side of our business, we are establishing meaningful traction with targeted vertical markets such as defense, utilities and smart grid, agriculture, and machine to machine applications. With respect to scanning receivers, we are establishing early leadership in support of new technologies such as LTE."

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

The company identified accounting misstatements primarily related to its first quarter 2009 purchase of Wi-Sys Communications. The company's revenue, cash flow and non-GAAP earnings are unaffected. The affect on GAAP earnings was that in the first quarter, the goodwill impairment expense should have been $222,000 higher than reported and income tax expense should have been $127,000 higher than reported; in the second quarter, income tax expense should have been $274,000 lower than reported. The affect on GAAP net loss in the first quarter is that it should be $(1.9) million instead of the $(1.5) million reported, or a $(374,000) greater loss. The affect on GAAP net loss in the second quarter is that the net loss should be $(1.3) million instead of the $(1.6) million reported, or $274,000 less of a loss. The affect on GAAP Q2 year to date net loss is that it should be $(3.2) million instead of the $(3.1) million reported, or a $(75,000) greater loss. Q1 2009 EPS should be net loss of $(0.11) instead of the $(0.09) reported, or $(0.02) lower. Q2 2009 GAAP EPS should be a net loss of ($0.07) instead of the $(0.09) reported, or $0.02 higher. GAAP Q2 year to date EPS is unchanged at $(0.17), as reported. The company expects to amend its filings on form 10-Q/A for the first and second quarters reflecting these changes as soon as practicable. The company is still evaluating the level of internal control deficiency that the misstatements represent and expects to report on its conclusion in the third quarter 10-Q and 10-Q/A's for Q1 and Q2.

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 measures 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 impairment charges

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