  • High Margin, Recurring and Services Revenue up 9% Year-Over-Year to $19.8 Million, Reflecting Company’s Focus on Driving SaaS and Software Revenue

  • Rationalization Initiatives Drive 58% Sequential Improvement in Loss from Operations

  • Strong First Half 2022 Financial Results, Position Company for Growth, and Improved Profitability for Full Year 2022

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Aug. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PowerFleet, Inc. (Nasdaq: PWFL), a global leader of Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions that manage enterprise assets for seamless business operations, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue was $34.6 million, an increase of 4% quarter-over-quarter.

  • High margin, recurring and services revenue increased 9% to $19.8 million, or 57% of total revenue, compared to the same year-ago period.

  • Product gross margin increased to 24% from 17% compared to Q1 2022, reflecting the success of the company’s initiatives to manage purchase price variance (PPV) challenges and reengineer certain products to enhance margins.

  • Loss from operations improved by $2.2 million to $(1.6) million, a decrease of 58% compared to Q1 2022.

  • Strong liquidity position with $18.0 million in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $38.5 million at quarter-end.

Management Commentary
“During the second quarter, we built on the momentum we established in Q1 and delivered solid sequential and year-over-year revenue growth, driven by further commitment from longstanding customers like Ford, Volvo, Nestle and Nack-Pack,” said PowerFleet CEO Steve Towe. “In fact, the $34.6 million in revenue we generated this period, marked a 10-quarter revenue high for PowerFleet. Importantly, we were able to achieve these milestones despite the ongoing macro headwinds and supply chain issues affecting our industry, our competitors, and companies globally. In addition to our topline performance, our rationalization initiatives are enhancing our organization’s efficiency and profitability, resulting in a 58% sequential improvement in loss from operations in Q2.

“PowerFleet’s transformation is well underway and already yielding strong returns. Our growth plan is supported by a solid cash position and available resources that provide sufficient runway to execute our strategy. We entered the second half of 2022 in a strong position, supported by building customer engagement, a growing pipeline, and several strategic opportunities on the horizon. As we look ahead, the team is executing well on driving transformation and accelerating our vision. The successful execution of our strategic road map will create a highly scalable, repeatable, and profitable global organization.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Total revenue increased 3% to $34.6 million from $33.5 million in the same year-ago period.

Services revenue was $19.8 million, or 57% of total revenue, an improvement compared to $18.1 million, or 54% of total revenue, in the same year-ago period. Product revenue, which drives future services revenue, was $14.8 million, or 43% of total revenue, compared to $15.5 million, or 46% of total revenue, in the same year-ago period.

Gross profit was $16.2 million, or 47% of total revenue, compared to $16.0 million, or 48% of total revenue, in the same year-ago period. Service gross profit was $12.7 million, or 65% of total service revenue, compared to $11.4 million, or 63% of total service revenue, in the same year-ago period. Product gross profit was $3.5 million, or 23% of total product revenue, compared to $4.6 million, or 30% of total product revenue, in the same year-ago period.

Operating expenses were $17.8 million, compared to $18.1 million in the prior quarter and $16.2 million in the same year-ago period. Operating expenses included foreign currency translation losses of $0.7 million.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders totaled $1.3 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share (based on 35.4 million weighted average shares outstanding), compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders of $2.6 million, or $(0.08) per basic and diluted share, in the same year-ago period (based on 34.9 million weighted average shares outstanding).

Non-GAAP net income, a non-GAAP metric, totaled $2.0 million, or $0.06 per basic and $0.05 per diluted share (based on 35.4 million weighted average basic shares outstanding and 43.0 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding), compared to non-GAAP net income of $1.4 million, or $0.04 per basic and $0.03 per diluted share (based on 34.9 million weighted average basic shares outstanding and 43.1 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding), in the same year-ago period (See the section below titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for more information about non-GAAP net income and its reconciliation to GAAP net income/loss).

Adjusted EBITDA gain, a non-GAAP metric, stayed consistent at $2.8 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $2.8 million in the same year-ago period (See the section below titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for more information about adjusted EBITDA and its reconciliation to GAAP net income/loss).

At quarter-end, the company had $18.0 million in cash and cash equivalents. The company’s working capital position at quarter-end was $38.5 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement its financial statements presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), PowerFleet provides certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per basic and diluted share and adjusted EBITDA. Reference to these non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared under current accounting standards, but are not a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of PowerFleet’s current financial performance. Specifically, PowerFleet believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that may not be indicative of its core operating results and business outlook. These non-GAAP measures are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered as an alternate to net income or cash flow from operating activities as an indicator of operating performance or liquidity. Because PowerFleet’s method for calculating the non-GAAP measures may differ from other companies’ methods, the non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Reconciliation of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release to the nearest GAAP measures can be found in the financial tables included in this press release.
