Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Sales for the third quarter of 2022 were $19.2 million, of which $7.3 million were generated from the Consumer market, $6.8 million were from the Enterprise market and $5.1 million were from the Automotive market. Sales decreased slightly by 0.5%, or $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2022 compared to $19.3 million in the second quarter of 2022. Enterprise sales decreased from the second quarter of 2022 by $2.4 million primarily due to lower sales generated from industrial IoT products. Consumer sales increased from the second quarter of 2022 by $1.4 million, primarily due to the easing of global supply shortages impacting our customers' product rollout and sales. Automotive sales increased $0.9 million from the second quarter of 2022, due to higher sales from Aftermarket products. Sales for the third quarter of 2022 increased by 24.2%, or $3.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2021. The increase in sales from the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to $3.0 million higher sales in the Automotive market and $2.7 million higher sales in the Consumer market, offset by a $2.0 million sales decrease in the Enterprise market.

GAAP gross profit for each of the third quarter of 2022 was $7.4 million, compared to $7.5 million for the second quarter of 2022 and $5.5 million for the third quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP gross profit was $7.6 million each for the third quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP gross profit was $5.6 million for the third quarter of 2021 (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of 2022 was 38.8%, compared to 38.9% for the second quarter of 2022 and 35.9% for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in gross margin compared to the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to the favorable Consumer revenue mix and Aftermarket margin improvement.

Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of 2022 was 39.4% flat compared to the second quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of 2022 was higher compared to 36.5% for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in non-GAAP gross margin compared to the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to a favorable Consumer revenue mix and Aftermarket margin improvement (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2022 was $8.7 million, compared to $9.1 million for the second quarter of 2022 and $8.6 million for the third quarter of 2021. Operating expenses were lower for the third quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2022 due to lower people costs. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $7.0 million compared to $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2022 and $6.8 million in the third quarter of 2021 (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $1.3 million or $(0.13) per share (based on 10.2 million shares), compared to a net loss of $1.6 million or $(0.16) per share (based on 10.2 million shares) for the second quarter of 2022 and net loss of $3.1 million or $(0.30) per share (based on 10.1 million shares) for the third quarter of 2021. The decrease in net loss compared to the second quarter of 2022 was mainly due to lower operating expense. The decrease in net loss versus the prior year was due to higher revenue and higher gross margin, offset by slightly higher operating expenses in the current period. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $0.6 million or $0.06 per diluted share (based on 10.5 million shares), compared to a non-GAAP net income of $0.4 million or $0.03 per diluted share (based on 10.4 million shares) for the second quarter of 2022 and a non-GAAP net loss of $1.1 million or $(0.11) per share (based on 10.1 million shares) for the third quarter of 2021 (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2022 was $0.8 million, compared to $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2022 and ($1.0) million for the third quarter of 2021 (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

First Nine Months 2022 Financial Results

Sales for the first nine months of 2022 were $56.0 million, of which $24.5 million were from the Enterprise market, $19.4 million were from the Consumer market and $12.1 million were from the Automotive market. Sales increased by 11.7%, or $5.9 million in the same year-ago period. The increase in sales was primarily due to $5.3 million higher sales from Enterprise market and $5.0 million higher sales from Automotive markets, partially offset by $4.4 million lower Consumer market sales caused by global supply shortages.

GAAP gross profit for the first nine months of 2022 was $22.1 million compared to $19.7 million in the same year-ago period. Non-GAAP gross profit for the first nine months of 2022 was $22.4 million, compared to $20.4 million in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

GAAP gross margin for the first nine months of 2022 was 39.5%, compared to 39.4% in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to the 2021 inventory step-up charges that were not incurred in 2022, offset by an unfavorable sales mix. Non-GAAP gross margin for the first nine months of 2022 was 40.1%, compared to 40.6% in the same year-ago period. The decrease in Non-GAAP gross margins were primarily due to an unfavorable sales mix, partially offset by gross margin improvements (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

GAAP operating expenses for the first nine months of 2022 was $27.4 million flat compared to the same year-ago period. The $1.7 million fair value charge for contingent consideration related to the NimbeLink acquisition in the same year-ago period was offset by higher people costs, product development expenses and professional fees incurred in 2022. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the first nine months of 2022 was $21.9 million, compared to $20.6 million in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

GAAP net loss for the first nine months of 2022 was $5.4 million or $(0.53) per share (based on 10.2 million shares), compared to a GAAP net loss of $5.4 million or $(0.54) per share (based on 10.0 million shares) in the same year-ago period. The relatively flat net loss was primarily due to higher revenues, offset by a $2.2 million income tax benefit recorded in the same year-ago period . Non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of 2022 was $0.5 million or $0.05 per diluted share (based on 10.5 million shares), compared to non-GAAP net loss of $0.2 million or $(0.02) per share (based on 10.0 million shares) in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2022 was $1.0 million, compared to $0.2 million in the same year-ago period (see note regarding "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).

Forward-Looking Statements

Airgain cautions you that statements in this press release that are not a description of historical facts are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on the company’s current beliefs and expectations. These forward-looking statements include statements regarding our fourth quarter 2022 financial outlook and demand for our products and prospects for future growth across our markets. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by Airgain that any of our plans will be achieved. Actual results may differ from those set forth in this press release due to the risk and uncertainties inherent in our business, including, without limitation: the market for our antenna products is developing and may not develop as we expect; our operating results may fluctuate significantly, including based on seasonal factors, which makes future operating results difficult to predict and could cause our operating results to fall below expectations or guidance; supply constraints on our and our customer's ability to obtain necessary components in our respective supply chains may negatively affect our sales and operating results; the COVID-19 pandemic may continue to disrupt and otherwise adversely affect our operations and those of our suppliers, partners, distributors and ultimate end customers, and the overall global supply shortage and logistics delays within the supply chain that our products are used in, as well as adversely affecting the general U.S. and global economic conditions and financial markets, and, ultimately, our sales and operating results; rising interest rates and inflation may adversely impact our margins, the supply chain and our customers’ sales, which may negatively affect our sales and operating results; our products are subject to intense competition, including competition from the customers to whom we sell and competitive pressures from existing and new companies may harm our business, sales, growth rates, and market share; risks associated with the performance of our products; risks and uncertainties related to management and key personnel changes; our future success depends on our ability to develop and successfully introduce new and enhanced products for the wireless market that meet the needs of our customers, including our ability to transition to provide a more diverse solutions capability; we sell to customers who are price conscious, and a few customers represent a significant portion of our sales, and if we lose any of these customers, our sales could decrease significantly; we rely on a small number of contract manufacturers to produce and ship all of our products, a single or limited number of suppliers for some components of our products and channel partners to sell and support our products, and the failure to manage our relationships with these parties successfully could adversely affect our ability to market and sell our products; if we cannot protect our intellectual property rights, our competitive position could be harmed or we could incur significant expenses to enforce our rights; and other risks described in our prior press releases and in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including under the heading "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent filings with the SEC. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof and we undertake no obligation to revise or update this press release to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement, which is made under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders (non-GAAP net income (loss)), non-GAAP net income (loss) per (basic or diluted) share (non-GAAP EPS), non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin. We believe these financial measures provide useful information to investors with which to analyze our operating trends and performance.

In computing Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP EPS, we exclude stock-based compensation expense, which represents non-cash charges for the fair value of stock awards; interest income, net of interest expense offset by other expense; depreciation and/or amortization; change in the fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition-related expenses, amortization of inventory step-up and provision (benefit) for income taxes. In computing non-GAAP operating expense, we exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, change in the fair value of contingent consideration and acquisition-related expenses. In computing non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, we exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of inventory step-up and amortization of intangible assets. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions, and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash operating expenses; we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash expense allows for meaningful comparisons between our core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing us with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own core business operating results over different periods of time. Management considers these types of expenses and adjustments, to a great extent, to be unpredictable and dependent on a significant number of factors that are outside of our control and are not necessarily reflective of operational performance during a period.

Our non-GAAP measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Our Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP EPS, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to operating or net income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. We do not consider these non-GAAP measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. Reconciliations with specific adjustments to GAAP results and outlooks are provided at the end of this release.
