MONTVALE, N.J., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQCM: MICT), a developer and manufacturer of rugged computers, tablets and computer-based systems for the commercial Mobile Resource Management (MRM) market and for the Aerospace and Defense markets, today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

"We achieved a record backlog of $16.5 million and $22.5 million as of the end of the second quarter and August 10, 2017 respectively, with most of that attributed to new contracts signed for thousands of units to be delivered by Micronet, our MRM division. As Micronet works to increase its production to meet demand, its backlog has grown, though its impact on year-to-date revenues has been delayed. Primarily for this reason, during the second quarter and the first six months of 2017, we experienced a decline in revenues as compared to the same periods in 2016. We anticipate top line numbers to increase for the balance of 2017 as Micronet delivers on purchase orders during the third and fourth quarters of 2017. Enertec continues its consistent performance, delivering on previously signed long-term contracts for Aerospace and Defense contracts and services," stated David Lucatz, Chief Executive Officer of Micronet Enertec Technologies.

"Technology is our core competence, and as Micronet-Enertec continues to enhance its top management team, we are pleased to welcome Mr. David Markus as the new CEO of Micronet Israel," Lucatz commented.

Mr. Markus previously served as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Pointer Telocation - a global MRM company, where he built and managed the company's R&D group and was also responsible for the company's products strategy, customer support and IT. He brings deep knowledge in technology, strategy and business development in the MRM space and will lead the fast-paced growth at Micronet. 

Second Quarter 2017 Review

  • Backlog as of June 30, 2017 for Micronet was $9.1 million and for Enertec was $7.4 million, for a combined backlog of $16.5 million, an increase of 7% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Total revenue was $5.9 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 12% on a quarter-over-quarter basis from revenues of $5.3 million in the first quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 12% from $6.7 million in the second quarter of 2016.
  • Gross profit margin was 14% in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 1% on a quarter-over-quarter basis and a decrease of 9% as compared to 23% in the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in overall gross margin was related to an increase in cost associated with the introduction of a new line of products at Micronet and contracts with lower profitability at Enertec.
  • R&D expense for the second quarter of 2017 was $618,000, or 10% of sales, compared to $683,000 or 10% of sales, in the second quarter of 2016.  
  • SG&A expense decreased by $253,000 to $1.75 million, or 30% of sales, as compared to $2.0 million, or 30% of sales, in the second quarter of 2016. 
  • Net loss attributable to Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. for the second quarter of 2017 was $1,331,000, or ($0.20) per basic and diluted share, a 9% increase compared to a net loss of $1,219,000, or ($0.21) per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016.  Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $1,196,000 or ($0.18) per basic and diluted share, as compared to $967,000, or ($0.16) per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net loss and loss per share is provided in the table at the end of this press release.
  • The Company reported a loss from continuing operations of $1,735,000 for the second quarter of 2017, as compared to a loss of $1,353,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and a loss of $2,091,000_in the first quarter of 2017

Six Months 2017 Review

  • Total revenue was $11.2 million for the first six months of 2017, a decrease of 15% from $13.2 million in the first six months of 2016.
  • Gross profit margin was 14% in the first six months of 2017, as compared to 28% in the first six months of 2016. The decrease in overall gross margin was related to an increase in cost associated with the introduction of a new line of products at Micronet and engaging in strategic contracts with lower profitability at Enertec.
  • Research and development (R&D) expense for the first six months of 2017 was $1,134,000, or 10% of sales, compared to $1,383,000, or 10% of sales, in the first six months of 2016.  
  • Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expense was $3.8 million in the first six months of 2017, as compared to $3.5 million in first six months of 2016. For the first six months of 2017 this represented 34% of sales as compared to 26% of sales in the same period in 2016, respectively.
  • Net loss attributable to Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. for the first six months of 2017 was $2,943,000, or ($0.45) per basic and diluted share, an 89% increase compared to a net loss of $1,558,000, or ($0.27) per basic and diluted share, for the first six months of 2016.  Non-GAAP net loss for the first six months of 2017 was $2,644,000 or ($0.40) per basic and diluted share, as compared to $1,082,000, or ($0.18) per basic and diluted share, for the first six months of 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, we provide additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, or non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate our financial performance.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in our business, as they exclude expenses and gains that are not reflective of our ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of our GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.

The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them from non-GAAP financial measures, are outlined below:

  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets - We are required to amortize the intangible assets, included in our GAAP financial statements, related to our acquisition of Micronet in 2012 and the Vehicle Business of Beijer in 2014. The amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and term of its related amortization are unique to these transactions. The amortization of acquired intangible assets are non-cash charges. We believe that such changes do not reflect our operational performance. Therefore, we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets to provide investors with a consistent basis for comparing pre- and post-transaction operating results.
  • Stock-based compensation - Stock based compensation consists of share based awards granted to certain individuals. They are non-cash and affected by our historical stock prices which are irrelevant to forward-looking analyses and are not necessarily linked to our operational performance.

The following table reconciles, for the periods presented, GAAP net loss attributable to Micronet Enertec to non-GAAP net loss attributable to Micronet Enertec and GAAP loss per diluted share attributable to Micronet Enertec to non-GAAP net loss per diluted share attributable to Micronet Enertec:
