MONTVALE, N.J., Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MICT, Inc. (NASDAQCM: MICT), a developer and manufacturer of rugged computers, tablets and computer-based systems for the commercial Mobile Resource Management (MRM) market, announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.

"Our operating MRM business marked solid improvements across multiple financial measures. Gross margin increased to 32% and 30% respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, increases of 98% and 184%, respectively, compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2017. Revenue increased by 25% and 65% to $4.7 million and $10.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, and we see improvements in the operating income as compared to the year-ago periods for both the second quarter and the first six months of 2018," stated David Lucatz, Chief Executive Officer of MICT. "Having closed on the sale of Enertec Systems, we reported a net income from discontinued operations of $4.8 million for the second quarter and strengthened our balance sheet. We believe that our subsidiary, Micronet Ltd.'s, improving operating results combined with the closing of the sale of Enertec puts our Company in a strong position to move forward into a potential M&A transaction that may potentially create greater value for our shareholders."

As set forth in the press release, these transactions are subject to diligence by the parties, the negotiation of definitive agreements and approval by the respective BNN and MICT Boards of Directors and MICT's shareholders.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, 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 the through the acquisition of Beijer Electronics, Inc. in 2014. The amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and term of its related amortization are unique to this transaction. The amortization of acquired intangible assets is 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 from continued operation attributable to MICT, Inc. to non-GAAP net loss attributable to MICT, Inc.:
