YEHUD, Israel, April 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS) today announced its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020. Management will hold an investors' conference call today at 10 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the results. The details for the investors' conference call can be found below the financial results summary.

FOURTH QUARTER 2020 RESULTS SUMMARY (all comparison to Fourth quarter 2019)

  • Revenue increased 23% to $29.2 million from $23.8 million

  • Operating income rose 22% to $3.5 million from $2.9 million

  • Net loss attributable to Magal's shareholders was ($0.6) million compared to net income of $1.8 million, including non-cash financial expenses of $1.5 million compared to no non-cash financial expenses, and tax expense of $2.0 million up from $0.6 million

  • EBITDA increased 18% to $4.0 million from $3.4 million

FULL YEAR 2020 RESULTS SUMMARY (all comparison to Full Year 2019)

  • Revenue of $81.3 million compared to $86.8 million, a 6% decline primarily resulting from COVID-19 business disruptions

  • Operating income was $5.4 million versus $6.0 million

  • Net income attributable to Magal's shareholders declined to $0.6 million from $2.3 million, including non-cash financial expenses of $1.5 million versus non-cash financial expenses of $1.7 million, and increased tax expense of $3.0 million versus $1.6 million

  • EBITDA decreased 10% to $7.3 million from $8.1 million

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $27.1 million at December 31, 2020

Mr. Dror Sharon, CEO of Magal, commented, "We finished the year with a solid fourth quarter that delivered 23% revenue growth and a 40% gross margin. The Integrated Solutions division's sales led the revenue increase due in part to the fulfillment of delayed orders from prior quarters. Senstar's stable revenues year-over-year in the US were modestly offset by continued weakness in the COVID-affected APAC and EMEA regions. Fourth quarter operating income increased 22%, and we reported a 14% EBITDA margin. Senstar's revenue was $9.6 million with 63% gross margin in the quarter and delivered ~20% EBITDA margin contribution to the consolidated EBITDA. The Company's performance in 2020, a year where we faced challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reflects the strength of our global team and their ability to pivot to productive and successful customer engagement across our vertical markets. We entered 2021 with a record backlog of ~$64 million, out of which Senstar accounted for a record backlog of ~$14 million. In December, we returned $25 million to our shareholders in a one-time cash distribution. Our balance sheet remains strong, with ~$27 million of cash and cash equivalents and no debt."

Continued Mr. Sharon, "In February 2021, we announced the divestiture of our Integrated Solutions Division, which we anticipate will close by the end of the second quarter of 2021. We are committed to focusing our efforts and resources on developing Senstar's industry-leading security technology and expanding its market share, particularly in our four focus vertical markets – logistics, corrections, energy, and critical infrastructure. We believe that Senstar's rich customer base and business model, with attractive gross margin contribution, and operational efficiencies is highly scalable to deliver long-term shareholder value as a stand-alone entity. The Senstar team is working continuously to improve our product lines and develop new products that set an industry standard for quality, innovation and reliability. The divesture of Integrated Solutions will improve the visibility of our Senstar business and further strengthen our already strong balance sheet to support the execution of our long-term growth strategy."

FOURTH QUARTER 2020 RESULTS SUMMARY

Revenue was $29.2 million compared with revenue of $23.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Revenue from Magal's Integrated Solutions Division (projects) represented approximately 67% of total revenue in 2020, while revenue from the Senstar Products Division represented approximately 33% of total revenue. Revenue from our Integrated Solutions Division (projects) increased by 57%, which was partially attributable to the fulfillment of an ESC-BAZ order that was delayed in early 2020. Senstar Products Division revenues decreased by 15% primarily due to the COVID-19 related slowdown in the EMEA and APAC regions.

Gross profit was $11.7 million, or 40.1% of revenue compared with gross profit of $11.4 million, or 48% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2019. The lower gross margin in the quarter was due to the change in the sales mix with a larger percentage of revenue coming from the Integrated Solutions Division.

Operating income was $3.5 million compared to $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Operating income improved due to the effect of the increased revenue, coupled with reduced operating expenses in the 2020 period.

Financial expenses were $1.5 million compared to financial income of $0.0 in the fourth quarter of 2019. The expense was primarily due to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar against the Israeli shekel in the quarter, which impacted the valuation of the Company's U.S. dollar denominated monetary assets held by the company.

Net loss attributable to Magal shareholders was ($0.6) million, or ($0.02) per share compared with net income of $1.8 million, or $0.05 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2019. The decline in net income was primarily attributable to the financial expenses described above to tax expense of $2.0 million, which included non-recurring tax expense, compared to a tax expense $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

EBITDA was $4 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 13.6%, compared with $3.4 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 14.1%, in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Cash, short term deposits and restricted deposits, net of bank debt, as of December 31, 2020, were $27.4 million, or $1.18 per share, compared with cash and short-term deposits, net of bank debt, of $51.6 million, or $2.23 per share at December 31, 2019. The decrease in the cash balance was primarily due to the payment of a cash dividend to shareholders totaling $25.0 million in December 2020.

FULL YEAR 2020 RESULTS SUMMARY

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $81.3 million compared with revenue of $86.8 million in 2019. The 6% decline year-over-year was primarily due to lower Integrated Solutions Division and Senstar Products Division revenue attributable to COVID-19 related -business disruptions and challenges.

Revenue from Magal's Integrated Solutions Division represented approximately 59% of total revenue, while revenue from the Senstar Products Division represented approximately 41% of total revenue. Revenue from Magal's Integrated Solutions Division decreased by 5% while the Senstar Product Division decreased by 8%, year over year.

Gross profit for 2020 was $34.6 million.

Financial expenses were $1.5 million for 2020 compared to $1.7 million in 2019. This expense is primarily due to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar against the New Israeli Shekel and the Canadian dollar in 2020 which impacted the valuation of the U.S. dollar denominated monetary assets held by the Company.

Net income attributable to Magal's shareholders for 2020 was $0.6 million, or $0.02 per share compared to $2.3 million, or $0.07 per share in 2019. The decline in net income was primarily attributable to the financial expenses described above and a tax expense of $3.0 million compared to a tax expense $1.6 million in 2019. The higher tax expense is partially impacted by non-recurring tax provisions.

EBITDA in 2020 was $7.3 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 9.0%, compared with $8.1 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 9.4%, in 2019.
