PCTEL Posts $14.8 Million in Fourth Quarter Revenue from Continuing Operations

$56.0 Million in Revenue from Continuing Operations for the Year

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill., Mar 04, 2010 (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, 2009.

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights - Continuing Operations

  • $14.8 million in revenue from continuing operations for the quarter, a decrease of 19% over the same period in 2008.
  • GAAP Gross Profit Margin from continuing operations of 47 percent, unchanged from the same period in 2008.
  • GAAP Operating Margin from continuing operations of a negative (4) percent as compared to a negative (87) percent in the same period in 2008. The operating results for the fourth quarter 2008 included 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 for the fourth quarter of 2008 would have been positive 5 percent.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Margin from continuing operations of 4 percent versus 12 percent in the same period in 2008. 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 $(572,000) for the quarter, or $(0.03) per share, compared to a net loss of $(10.8) million, or $(0.61) per diluted share for the same period in 2008. The $11 million difference is primarily attributed to the fourth quarter 2008 impairment of goodwill net of tax.
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $662,000 for the quarter, or $0.04 per diluted share compared to $568,000 of net income, or $0.03 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.
  • The company acquired Ascom's scanning receiver operation and the distribution rights and intellectual property (IP) associated with Wider Networks' interference management product line in the fourth quarter 2009. There were no significant operating results in the fourth quarter, due to the timing of the transactions.
  • $75.6 million of cash, short-term investments, and long-term investments at December 31, 2009, a decrease of $2.9 million from the quarter ended September 30, 2009. During the fourth quarter the company paid out cash of $4.3 million for the Ascom scanning receiver acquisition, $800,000 related to the distribution rights and patented technology in the IP litigation settlement with Wider Networks, and approximately $1.0 million for the repurchase of 167,000 common shares pursuant to its stock buyback program. The company generated approximately $3.2 million in cash and investments from all other sources during the quarter. Additionally, the company received the final liquidation payment during the fourth quarter from its investment in Bank of America's Columbia Strategic Cash Portfolio Fund.

"We were pleased with the third, consecutive quarterly increase in revenues," said Marty Singer, PCTEL's Chairman and CEO. "The migration to 4G technologies is beginning to fuel the growth of our GPS and WiMax antennas. This transition also creates additional demand for our new LTE scanning receivers which are utilized in early network deployment, network optimization, and drive testing," added Singer.

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.

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
