Sierra Wireless Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

VANCOUVER, British Columbia

Sierra Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today reported results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2020. All results are reported in U.S. dollars and are prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), except as otherwise indicated below.

“I'm very pleased with how well our global team at Sierra Wireless has responded to the COVID-19 situation and worked quickly to adjust to this challenging environment while focusing on delivering leading IoT solutions to our customers,” said Kent Thexton, President and CEO. “Despite some pandemic-related supply chain disruptions, our Q1 revenue met our expectations and our recurring revenue win activity was robust in the First Quarter.”

Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $157.6 million compared to $173.8 million in the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of 9.3%. Quarterly revenue for our two business segments was as follows: (i) Revenue from IoT Solutions was $78.8 million in the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of 16.4% compared to $94.3 million in the first quarter of 2019. Within this segment we had solid year over year recurring and other service revenue growth of 17% driven by growth in connected devices and the addition of revenue from the M2M Group acquisition. This growth was offset by lower hardware sales in Enterprise gateway products and IoT Solutions modules; and (ii) Revenue from Embedded Broadband at $78.8 million in the first quarter of 2020 was relatively flat compared to the first quarter of 2019. This primarily reflects lower mobile computing module sales as expected, offset by stronger demand from automotive customers. Recurring and other services revenue in the first quarter was $26.8 million, representing 17.0% of consolidated revenue and Product revenue was $130.8 million, representing 83.0% of consolidated revenue.

GAAP RESULTS

  • Gross margin was $43.6 million, or 27.7% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $54.6 million, or 31.4% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Operating expenses were $65.1 million and loss from operations was $21.5 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to operating expenses of $64.4 million and loss from operations of $9.8 million in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Net loss was $22.7 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $11.2 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Short-term borrowings were $25.0 million as at March 31, 2020 compared to $nil at December 31, 2019

NON-GAAP RESULTS(1)

  • Gross margin was 27.7% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 31.5% in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Loss from operations was $13.8 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to loss from operations of $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Net loss was $14.7 million, or loss of $0.41 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020 compared to net loss of $0.9 million, or loss of $0.02 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") loss were $9.2 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to Adjusted EBITDA earnings of $4.5 million in the first quarter of 2019.

(1) See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results by Quarter" below.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at the end of the first quarter of 2020 was $72.8 million, representing a decrease of $6.3 million from the end of 2019. The decrease in cash was primarily driven by the acquisition of M2M Group, an operating loss in the quarter and capital expenditures, partially offset by short- term borrowings under our revolving credit facility.

COVID-19 Impact

As a result of the evolving COVID-19 outbreak first reported in Wuhan, China in January 2020, and following government-imposed restrictions, we delayed the reopening of our Shenzhen office after Chinese New Year holidays and, in line with local government directions, the employees of our Hong Kong, Seoul, and Tokyo offices were guided to work from home as much as possible. Our Shenzhen office was authorized to reopen on February 24th. During this period, our employees were able to productively work from home. These restrictions also affected our manufacturing and component supplier partners in China due to factory closures, employees’ inability to work and logistical challenges. While the work-from-home situation did not directly impact our manufacturing partner in Vietnam, it was affected by dependencies on component suppliers in China.

From late February onwards, our manufacturing and supply chain partners in China gradually reopened production facilities and we were generally able to mitigate the impact of the manufacturing and supply chain disruption with only a small impact on our ability to fulfill customer demand in the first quarter of 2020. We continue to experience certain supply chain disruptions relating to our component suppliers located in Malaysia, Philippines and Mexico as a result of the continuing impact of the COVID 19 pandemic. In addition, logistics supporting the transportation of goods remains a challenge for us due to the dramatic reduction of passenger flights globally and the insufficient capacity of cargo specialized flights.

We did not experience significant interruption of customer demand in the first quarter of 2020. However, due to the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our customers, we are facing weaker-than-expected revenue projections in the second quarter of 2020, driven primarily by significant reduction in the Automotive outlook. Overall, new design win activity remains strong, and we believe this underpins long term growth of device and recurring revenue post the impact of COVID-19. We expect gateway growth to re-establish itself following the pandemic, driven by re-vitalization of our Go-to-Market capability and new product offerings. Also, some segments of our offerings have seen stronger demand due to COVID-19 but supply chain challenges restrict us from reacting to all of this demand. We have a strong position in the automotive module market and expect recovery in this space once manufacturers restore production and launch additional connected car platforms.

However, the extent to which COVID-19 may impact our business will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, such as the geographic spread of the disease, the duration of the outbreak, business closures or business disruptions, public health restrictions on travel and in-person interactions, and the effectiveness of action to contain and treat the disease in the United States, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. We cannot presently predict with accuracy the duration, scope and severity of any potential business closures or disruptions, or the overall effects of COVID-19 on our business over time. Continued shutdowns or other business interruptions could result in material and negative effects on our ability to conduct our business in the manner and on the timelines presently planned, which could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operation, and financial condition. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to rapidly evolve, and we will continue to monitor the effects of COVID-19 on our business.

Financial Performance and Liquidity

As a result of the near-term COVID 19 pressures on our financial performance, we have taken measures to reduce our operating expenditures through initiatives such as deferring salary increases, reducing executive salaries by 10%, curtailing discretionary spending, and reducing capital expenditures.

Despite the foregoing uncertainties and our initiatives to reduce operating expenditures, we believe strongly in our future growth prospects and our long-term strategy.

On April 30th, the amount available under our revolving bank credit facility was increased to $50 million, which provides an additional $20 million of liquidity to the Company. The maturity date of the facility was also extended from July 2021 to April 2023. We appreciate the ongoing commitment from our banking partner, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, in backing us with this increase in our credit facility.

Acquisition of M2M Group

On January 7, 2020, we completed the acquisition of M2M Connectivity Pty Ltd, M2M One Pty Ltd and D-Square Innovation Pty Ltd (together, the "M2M Group") in Australia. Total purchase consideration for the acquisition of M2M Group was $21.1 million, comprised of cash consideration to the shareholders of $19.6 million for 100% of the equity of M2M Group, plus approximately $1.3 million for the retirement of certain obligations, and $0.2 million for normal course working capital adjustments. The M2M Group is focused on IoT connectivity services and cellular devices in Australia, and the acquisition expands the Company's IoT Solutions business in the Asia-Pacific region. M2M Group's contributions were accretive to earnings in the first quarter of 2020. M2M Group contributed revenue of $4.0 million and $0.3 million in net earnings.

Financial Guidance

The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on our global business remains uncertain. While we continue to evaluate the effects of COVID-19 on our business, the overall severity and duration of adverse impacts related to COVID-19 on our business, financial condition, cash flows and/or results of operations for the second quarter 2020 and beyond cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. The ultimate size of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business will depend on future developments which cannot be currently predicted.

Given the uncertainty surrounding the duration and magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to provide a reliable outlook for the balance of 2020 and as a result are withdrawing our previous guidance for the Full Year 2020 Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA presented on February 13, 2020. We continue to believe that our products and solutions make us well-positioned to drive strong long-term growth in an expanding IoT industry when the global economy commences recovery from the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

This non-GAAP guidance constitutes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities laws and reflects current business indicators and expectations. These statements are based on management's current beliefs and assumptions, which could prove to be significantly incorrect. Forward-looking statements, particularly those that relate to longer periods of time, are subject to substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events or results to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements, including those described in our regulatory filings. See "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We disclose these non-GAAP financial measures as we believe they provide useful information to investors and analysts to assist them in their evaluation of our operating results and to assist in comparisons from one period to another. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross margin excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes and certain other non-recurring costs or recoveries.

Non-GAAP earnings (loss) from operations includes allocation of realized gains or losses on forward contracts and excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes, acquisition-related amortization, acquisition-related and integration costs, restructuring costs, impairment and certain other non-recurring costs or recoveries.

Non-GAAP income tax expense includes certain tax adjustments and taxes on acquisition-related amortization, acquisition-related and integration costs, restructuring costs, other non-recurring costs and foreign exchange.

In addition to the above, non-GAAP net earnings (loss) and non-GAAP net earnings (loss) per share exclude the impact of foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of certain balance sheet accounts, foreign exchange gains or losses on forward contracts and certain tax adjustments.

We use the above-noted non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes and to allow us to assess the performance of our business before including the impacts of the items noted above as they affect the comparability of our financial results. These non-GAAP measures are reviewed regularly by management and the Board of Directors as part of the ongoing internal assessment of our operating performance. We also use non-GAAP earnings from operations as one component in determining short-term incentive compensation for management employees.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings (loss) plus stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes, acquisition-related and integration costs, restructuring cost, impairment, certain other nonrecurring costs or recoveries, amortization, foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of certain balance sheet accounts, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses on forward contracts, interest and income tax expense. Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by investors and analysts for valuation purposes and is an important indicator of our operating performance and our ability to generate liquidity through operating cash flow that will fund future working capital needs and fund future capital expenditures.
