Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) ("Smith Micro" or the "Company") today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

"2020 was a very successful year for Smith Micro," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. "Despite unique challenges caused by a global pandemic, we achieved our best fiscal year in nearly a decade and grew annual revenues 18% year-over-year.

"During 2020, we also strengthened our future business case and technology portfolio by completing the integration of Circle’s parental controls and enhancing our SafePath® Connected Lifestyle Platform with new driver safety functionality, while also bringing to market key functionality for our ViewSpot® smart retail solution," Smith continued. "Despite the substantial capital investment that these activities required, we remained profitable throughout the year and generated $7.9 million in cash from operations."

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Smith Micro reported revenue of $12.4 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $12.3 million reported in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Fourth quarter 2020 gross profit was $11.0 million compared to $11.3 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 89 percent for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to 92 percent for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") net income available to common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $580 thousand, or $0.01 diluted earnings per share, compared to GAAP net income available to common stockholders of $3.7 million, or $0.09 diluted earnings per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Non-GAAP net income (which excludes stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, transaction gains, and acquisitions costs) for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $1.4 million, or $0.03 diluted earnings per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $4.3 million, or $0.10 diluted earnings per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

Smith Micro reported revenue of $51.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $43.3 million reported in the year ended December 31, 2019.

Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $46.1 million compared to $39.4 million reported for the same period in 2019.

Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 90 percent for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to 91 percent for the year ended December 31, 2019.

GAAP net income available to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $4.2 million, or $0.10 diluted earnings per share, compared to GAAP net income available to common stockholders of $10.6 million, or $0.29 diluted earnings per share, for the same period in 2019.

Non-GAAP net income (which excludes stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, transaction gains, acquisition costs, and preferred stock dividends) for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $10.4 million, or $0.24 diluted earnings per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $12.8 million, or $0.35 diluted earnings per share, for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Total cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2020 were $25.8 million.

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers and has included in this press release certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, income before taxes, net income available to common stockholders, and earnings per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes this non-GAAP presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing our income generation and has therefore excluded the following items from GAAP earnings calculations: stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, transaction gains, acquisition costs, and preferred stock dividends. Additionally, since the Company currently has federal and state net operating loss carryforwards that can be utilized to reduce future cash payments for income taxes, these non-GAAP adjustments have not been tax effected and the resulting income tax expense reflects actual taxes paid or accrued during each period. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The table below presents the differences between non-GAAP net income and net income on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-financial measures as reported by Smith Micro may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release are, and certain statements on the related conference call may be, forward-looking statements regarding future events or results, including statements related to our financial prospects and other projections of our outlook or performance and our future business plans, and statements using such words as "expect," "anticipate," "believe," "plan," "intend," "could," "will" and other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause or contribute to such differences are customer concentration, given that the majority of our sales depend on a few large customer relationships, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and financial results, changes in demand for our products from our customers and their end-users, changes in requirements for our products imposed by our customers or by the third party providers of software and/or platforms that we use, our ability to effectively integrate, market and sell acquired product lines, new and changing technologies, customer acceptance and timing of deployment of those technologies, and our ability to compete effectively with other software and technology companies. These and other factors discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this release are made on the basis of the views and assumptions of management, and we do not undertake any obligation to update these statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this release.
