SuperCom Reports Pre-Acquisition Third Quarter and Nine Months Financial Results

For the nine months period; EPS is 0.63, gross margin at 85%; operating margin at 28%

HERZLIYA, Israel, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperCom Ltd (NASDAQ: SPCB), a leading provider of Electronic Intelligence Solutions for National ID, Public Safety and HealthCare, today announced its results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2013, prior to its acquisition of the SmartID division. 

Financial Highlights of the third quarter of 2013 compared with the third quarter of 2012

  • Revenue was $2.02 million compared to $1.79 million last year
  • Gross profit was $1.66 million, compared to $1.3 million last year;
  • Net income increased to $1.5 million, compared to $510 thousand last year;
  • EPS was $0.16 compared to $0.06 last year

Financial Highlights of the first nine months of 2013 compared with the first nine months of 2012

  • Revenue was $5.92 million, compared to $5.72 million last year
  • Gross profit was $5.02 million, compared to $4.10 million last year;
  • Net income was $5.6 million compared to $3.3 million last year;
  • EPS was $0.63 compared to $0.62 last year

The financial results are reported on a standalone basis and exclude the results of the SmartID division acquisition, and the public offering, which were both completed during the last week of 2013. The SmartID division's operation will significantly contribute to SuperCom's results starting from the first quarter of 2014.

"I am very pleased with the financial result of the third quarter of last year and our achievements were all the more impressive given that management and major company resources were occupied with the secondary offering, and the acquisition of a SmartID division which was twice our size," commented Arie Trabelsi, CEO of SuperCom. "We continued to present excellent performance across all parameters, indicating the strength and depth of our operations. We see these results as an indication that our core business remains on the right track and continues its positive momentum of growth and strong profitability. I note that the results of the third quarter are historical and do not include those of our new SmartID division, which will have a major and positive impact to our results in 2014 in terms of both revenue and profit."

Continued Mr. Trabelsi, "Towards the end of 2013, we raised $13.8 million dollars in a secondary offering  in order to pay for the SmartID acquisition and increase working capital, and I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new investors. We look forward to working hard to increasing shareholder value and we intend to continue unlocking the significant untapped potential that SuperCom has, together with its new SmartID division."

SuperCom intends to release its fourth quarter and full year 2013 results at the beginning of March and will hold an investor conference call at that time in conjunction with the release.

There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
