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.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago.

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
