Market Overview

PCTEL Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Share:

PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI) announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Highlights

  • Revenue of $18.9 million in the quarter, 20% lower compared to the third quarter 2019. Revenue was lower by 6% for the test and measurement product line, and lower by 25% for the antenna product line compared to the third quarter 2019.
  • Gross profit margin of 50.6% in the third quarter, up 5.5% compared to the gross profit margin in the third quarter 2019. The percentage increase in the third quarter is a result of higher mix of higher margin test and measurement products, and higher gross margin percentages for both test & measurement products and antenna products.
  • GAAP net income per share of $0.06 in the third quarter compared to GAAP net income per share of $0.07 in the third quarter 2019.
  • Non-GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA are metrics the Company uses to measure its core earnings. A reconciliation of those non-GAAP measures to our GAAP financial statements is provided later in the press release.
    • Non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.08 in the third quarter compared to Non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.14 in the third quarter 2019.
    • Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue of 12.4% in the third quarter compared to 13.1% in the third quarter 2019.
  • $41.3 million of cash and investments (including long-term investments) and no debt at September 30, 2020 compared to $39.6 million and no debt at June 30, 2020.

"We're pleased with another strong quarter and incremental revenue growth for our test and measurement products driven by 5G global deployments. Our antenna product lines have been significantly impacted by the pandemic induced recession, but we are encouraged to see an increase in total incoming orders for the quarter," said David Neumann, PCTEL's CEO. "We continue to invest in our scanner and antenna product lines focusing on 5G, industrial IoT and intelligent transportation markets. We are confident that our long-term growth strategies will be successful as market conditions improve."

This schedule reconciles the Company's GAAP operating income to its non-GAAP operating 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.

The adjustments to GAAP operating income (a) consist of stock compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets. The adjustments to GAAP net income include the non-GAAP adjustments to operating income as well as adjustments for (b) non-cash income tax expense.
