BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

PCTEL, Inc. (PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical TELecom solutions, announced its 2016 fourth quarter and full year results.

Highlights

  • Revenue of $26.7 million in the quarter, a 2% increase over the same period last year. $96.7 million in revenue for the year, a decrease of 9% as compared to 2015.
  • Gross profit margin of 37.4% in the quarter compared to 35.5% for the same period last year. Gross profit margin of 36.4% for the year, compared to 34.9% in 2015.
  • Net loss of $0.33 per share in the quarter, compared to a net loss of $0.05 per share in the same period last year. Net loss of $1.09 per share for the year, compared to a net loss of $0.09 last year. 2016 results include non-cash expenses for intangible asset impairments and the establishment of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance which cost $0.35 per share in the quarter and $1.00 per share for the year.
  • Non-GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA are measures the company uses to reflect the results of its core earnings. A reconciliation of those Non-GAAP measures to our financial statements is provided later in the press release.
  • Non-GAAP net income of $0.08 per share in the quarter compared to $0.04 for the same period last year, and $0.20 per share for the year compared to $0.11 in 2015. The non-cash expenses for intangible asset impairments and the establishment of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance are responsible for most of difference between GAAP & non-GAAP results.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percent of revenue in the quarter of 9% compared to 6% for the same period last year, and 7% for the year compared to 5% in 2015.
  • $33.3 million of cash and short-term investments at December 31, 2016, an increase of approximately $2.1 million from the preceding quarter. The Company generated free cash flow of approximately $3.0 million for the quarter (11% of revenue) and $8.5 million for the year (9% of revenue).

“Strong small cell antenna demand coupled with scanning receiver sales contributed to improved revenue and gross profit margin for the quarter,” said David Neumann, PCTEL’s CEO. “The densification of wireless networks and expanding applications across IoT will continue to provide opportunities for PCTEL antennas and test and measurement solutions.”
