Airgain Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

August 07, 2017

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of advanced antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking, today reported unaudited results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue up 32% to $13.0 million
  • Gross margin of 47.0%
  • GAAP Earnings per diluted share of ($0.01)
  • Non-GAAP Earnings per diluted share of $0.10
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 8% to $1.2 million

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Sales increased 32% to $13.0 million from $9.9 million in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily driven by a continued increase in product sales, as well as the revenue contribution from the assets acquired from Antenna Plus in April 2017.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2017 grew 35% to $6.1 million from $4.5 million in Q2 of last year. Gross margin as a percentage of sales increased to 47.0% in the second quarter of 2017, compared to 46.1% in the same year-ago period.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017 grew 75% to $6.2 million from $3.6 million in Q2 of last year. The increase was primarily due to higher personnel expenses to support the Company’s sales, marketing, and R&D initiatives, on-going expenses related to Antenna Plus, as well as $795 thousand in acquisition related expenses.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders totaled $70 thousand or ($0.01) per diluted share (based on 9.5 million shares), compared to a net income attributable to common stockholders of $700 thousand or $0.15 per diluted share (based on 4.5 million shares) in the same year-ago period.

Non-GAAP Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $1.1 million or $0.10 per diluted share (based on 10.2 million shares), compared to non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $554 thousand or $0.19 per diluted share (based on 6.0 million shares) in the same year-ago period (see note regarding “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, fair market value for adjustments of warrants, acquisition transaction costs and share-based compensation) decreased 8% to $1.2 million from $1.3 million in the same year-ago period (see note regarding “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

Second Quarter 2017 Key Performance Indicators (compared to same year-ago period excluding the Antenna Plus acquisition)

  • The average selling price (ASP) per device increased 22% to $0.99
  • Total customer devices decreased 2.6% or 0.3 million devices to 11.7 million devices
  • The average number of antennas per device increased 16% to 3.51

Management Commentary

“Overall, the second quarter of 2017 represented a continuation of the same strong growth and momentum Airgain has achieved over the last several quarters and years,” said Airgain’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Charles Myers. “Our total revenue increased 32% year-over-year, while our gross margins comfortably exceeded our 40% operating model. Supplementing this healthy financial performance was our continued progress on the operational front.

“This progress was highlighted most notably with the closing of the Antenna Plus acquisition. Although we are only three months into the acquisition, we are already seeing many new opportunities where Airgain’s engineering expertise can also strengthen and accelerate our existing connected car product lines.

“Looking at some of the other areas of our business, we were very active in the Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) space during the quarter, participating in two additional network trials and reference designs. On top of that, we also started to see the ramp of another major U.S. carrier’s 802.11ac strategy. Finally, one of our major new retail router programs hit volume production, which is a significant revenue opportunity outside of our core antenna business, with corresponding higher per antenna ASPs.

“As we head into the second half of 2017, we will continue to execute on the strategies which have driven our historical success. While we are still excelling in our core connected home and IoT markets, we are also working to develop and further expand other opportunities within the enterprise, automotive and industrial IoT markets.”

Forward-Looking Statements

Airgain cautions you that statements in this press release that are not a description of historical facts are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on the company’s current beliefs and expectations. These forward-looking statements include statements regarding our ability to strengthen and accelerate Antenna Plus’ existing product lines, potential significant revenue and ASP opportunities outside of our traditional core embedded antenna business and our ability to further expand other opportunities within the enterprise, automotive and industrial IoT markets. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by Airgain that any of our plans will be achieved. Actual results may differ from those set forth in this press release due to the risk and uncertainties inherent in our business, including, without limitation: adjustments to the unaudited financial results reported for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 in connection with the completion of the company’s final closing process and procedures, final adjustments, and other developments that may arise during the preparation of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q; the market for our antenna products is developing and may not develop as we expect; our operating results may fluctuate significantly, including based on seasonal factors, which makes future operating results difficult to predict and could cause our operating results to fall below expectations or guidance; our products are subject to intense competition, including competition from the customers to whom we sell, and competitive pressures from existing and new companies may harm our business, sales, growth rates and market share; our future success depends on our ability to develop and successfully introduce new and enhanced products for the wireless market that meet the needs of our customers; risks associated with integrating the Antenna Plus business into our current business; we sell to customers who are extremely price conscious, and a few customers represent a significant portion of our sales, and if we lose any of these customers, our sales could decrease significantly; we rely on a few contract manufacturers to produce and ship all of our products, a single or limited number of suppliers for some components of our products and channel partners to sell and support our products, and the failure to manage our relationships with these parties successfully could adversely affect our ability to market and sell our products; if we cannot protect our intellectual property rights, our competitive position could be harmed or we could incur significant expenses to enforce our rights; and other risks described in our prior press releases and in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent filings with the SEC. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof, and we undertake no obligation to revise or update this press release to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement, which is made under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Airgain’s condensed financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), non-GAAP Net income attributable to common stockholders (non-GAAP Net income), and non-GAAP Earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP EPS). We believe these financial measures provide useful information to investors with which to analyze our operating trends and performance.

In computing Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Net income, and non-GAAP EPS, we also exclude stock-based compensation expense, which represents non-cash charges for the fair value of stock options and other non-cash awards granted to employees, the fair market value adjustments for warrants, and acquisition related expenses, which include due diligence, legal, integration, and regulatory expenses. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash operating expenses, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash expense allows for meaningful comparisons between our core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing us with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own core business operating results over different periods of time. In addition, our recent acquisition related activities resulted in operating expenses that would not have otherwise been incurred. Management considers these types of expenses and adjustments, to a great extent, to be unpredictable and dependent on a significant number of factors that are outside of our control and are not necessarily reflective of operational performance during a period. Furthermore, we believe the consideration of measures that exclude such acquisition related expenses can assist in the comparison of operational performance in different periods which may or may not include such expenses.

Our Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Net income, and non-GAAP EPS measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Our Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Net income, and non-GAAP EPS are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating or net income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. We do not consider these non-GAAP measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the last three tables at the end of this release.
