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.

This schedule reconciles the Company's GAAP operating income and GAAP net income to its non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income. The Company believes that presentation of this schedule provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company's core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results.

(a) These adjustments reflect stock based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, and general and administrative expenses associated with the TelWorx investigation.

(b) These adjustments include the items described in footnote (a) as well as other income for the TelWorx legal settlement and insurance claims related to the TelWorx investigation, and non-cash income tax expense.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

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.

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.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions.

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...
20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
