PCTEL Achieves $26.2 Million in Second Quarter Revenue

PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI), a leader in performance critical telecom solutions, announced its 2014 second quarter results.

Second Quarter Highlights

$26.2 million in revenue for the quarter, a decrease of two percent from the same period last year.

Gross profit margin of 41 percent in the quarter, compared to 39 percent in the same period last year.

GAAP operating margin from continuing operations of two percent for the quarter, compared to operating margin of one percent for the same period last year.

GAAP net income from continuing operations of $545,000 for the quarter, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to net income of $187,000 from continuing operations, or $0.01 per diluted share for the same period last year.

Non-GAAP operating profit and net income are measures the company uses to reflect the results of its core earnings. 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.

Non-GAAP operating margin from continuing operations of nine percent in the quarter, unchanged from the same period last year.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $2.0 million or $0.11 per diluted share in the quarter, unchanged from the same period last year.

$53.9 million of cash, short-term investments at June 30, 2014, a decrease of approximately $(2.3) million from the preceding quarter. During the quarter the company repurchased approximately 216,000 of its common shares for $1.65 million, paid $750,000 in dividends, and generated $100,000 of cash and investments from all other sources.

"Our core antenna business rebounded in the second quarter, recovering from weather-related delays and soft economic conditions. We received our single largest order in the company’s history for delivery next quarter, we initiated delivery of scanning receivers to China Telecom and our network engineering services business is now at a $10 million annual run rate,” said Marty Singer, PCTEL’s Chairman and CEO. “We look forward to executing against our small cell site forecast, expanding our tower business, growing our core antenna sales into key vertical markets, and fully exploiting the LTE and TD-LTE scanning receiver market,” added Singer.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020.
