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.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
