TESSCO Reports Third Quarter Earnings of $0.53 per Share

TESSCO (NASDAQ: TESS), Your Total Source® for the product and value chain solutions to build, use and maintain wireless systems, today reported its fiscal third-quarter results for the period ended December 29, 2013.

  • Revenues were $145 million.
  • Operating margin increased to 4.9% from 4.3% last year.
  • Net income of $4.4 million, or $0.53 per diluted share.
  • EBITDA** was $1.00 per share.
  • Board increases dividend 11%; $0.20 per share quarterly dividend declared.

“We continued our total focus this quarter on serving the public, government and private wireless system operators and resellers with the knowledge, products and supply chain solutions required to support their wireless deployments,” said Chairman and CEO Robert B. Barnhill, Jr. “We are making great progress in enhancing our value proposition, digital marketing, relationship selling and operations to gain new customers, monthly 'total solution' buyers, and operational productivity and profitability.

“Core revenues* in the third quarter were essentially unchanged, both sequentially and from the same quarter of fiscal 2013, as we continued the transition away from the large third-party logistics (3PL) relationship. Because the last significant sales to that 3PL customer were in fiscal 2013, fiscal 2014 results do not contain non-core revenues. Therefore, beginning with the first quarter of fiscal 2015, year-over-year comparisons will no longer make a distinction between core and non-core revenues.”

Ventev sales were up 19% on contributions from both Wireless Infrastructure and Mobile Accessories proprietary products, helping to increase core gross margin both sequentially and year-over-year. EPS at $0.53 was off only slightly from the second quarter, and down from $0.65 a year ago, primarily due to the transition of the third-party logistics relationship.

“We are pleased to increase the dividend 11% to $0.20 per share,” added Barnhill. “The increased dividend demonstrates our strong financial position, increased cash generation and the board’s confidence in our ability to execute on our strategic initiatives.

“The convergence of wireless and the Internet is creating new opportunities and challenges; we are meeting the needs of the industry’s demanding requirements by providing true configured end-to-end solutions, not just providing a vast product offering. Through our expertise in supply chain and inventory management, and our single point of access to thousands of products and services, we are rapidly delivering innovation, productivity and the solutions they need -- when and where they need them.

“As we look to the future, we continue to execute our strategy, which places TESSCO at the forefront of the wireless industry and separates us from our competition. Our 'high tech-high touch' strategy is founded on configuring specific end-to-end solutions to meet customer requirements; using our Internet data-based systems to attract customer opportunities and provide them with knowledge and ease of procurement; and developing strong one-on-one personal relationships with our customers. It is an exciting time in our business and our team is energized to build sustainable profitable growth,” concluded Barnhill.

Third-Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

For the fiscal 2014 third quarter, revenues totaled $144.9 million, compared with $204.5 million in the fiscal 2013 third quarter, which included $58.9 million of revenue from the since-transitioned third-party logistics (3PL) relationship. Excluding the $58.9 million in 3PL revenues, core revenues* were essentially flat from the prior-year period. The public carrier market produced 15% revenue growth from the prior-year period. Revenues from the retailer, independent dealer agent and carrier market fell by 11%, while revenues from private and government system operators decreased by 0.8%. Revenues from the commercial dealers and resellers market were flat. Sales from the Company’s Ventev® design and manufacturing products, which support all of TESSCO’s markets, grew 19%, compared with the same quarter last year, and totaled 13% of overall revenues this quarter.

Third-quarter fiscal 2014 gross profit was $36.1 million, compared with $39.0 million in the third quarter last year, which included a $3.4 million gross profit contribution from the transitioned 3PL business. Excluding the 3PL business, gross profit increased 2% from a year ago. Largely due to the transition of the low-margin 3PL business, gross margin increased to 24.9% in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from 19.1% in the same period last year.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $29.0 million, compared with $30.2 million in last year's third quarter, partially due to a reduction in expenses associated with the transitioned 3PL business. Operating margin rose to 4.9% from 4.3% in the prior-year quarter.

EBITDA** totaled $8.4 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with $10.0 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter.

Net income and diluted earnings per share totaled $4.4 million and $0.53 in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, respectively, compared with $5.4 million and $0.65 in the prior-year quarter, respectively.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2014, TESSCO reported revenues of $435.6 million and net income of $13.3 million, or $1.60 per diluted share. These results compare with revenues of $594.1 million and net income of $14.9 million, or $1.80 per diluted share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. EBITDA** for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 totaled $25.4 million, or $3.05 per share, compared with $28.1 million, or $3.40 per share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

TESSCO generated $7.1 million of cash from operations during the third quarter and $11.6 million for the fiscal year to date. Cash and cash equivalents were $8.3 million at the end of the third quarter, up from $4.5 million at the end of the last fiscal year.

Quarterly Cash Dividends

The Board of Directors declared an increased quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per common share payable on February 19, 2014 to holders of record on February 5, 2014.

Any future declaration of dividends, and the establishment of record and payment dates, is subject to further determinations of the Board of Directors.

Business Outlook

The Company affirmed its previous earnings per diluted share guidance for fiscal 2014, in the range of $1.90 to $2.10. The top end of this guidance range would assume a faster than currently expected commencement of building from the Company’s public carrier customers, and faster than expected benefits from the investments TESSCO is making in its business generation engine.

Forecasting future results is inherently difficult for any business, and actual results may differ materially from those forecasted. The nature of TESSCO’s business is that the Company typically ships products within several days after booking orders. The lack of an order backlog makes it even more difficult to forecast future results. The Business Outlook published in this press release reflects only the Company's current best estimate and TESSCO assumes no obligation to update the information contained in this press release, including the Business Outlook, at any time.

Third-Quarter Fiscal 2014 Conference Call

Management will host a conference call to discuss its third-quarter 2014 results on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. ET. To participate in the conference call, please call: 877-280-4954 (domestic call-in) or 857-244-7311 (international call-in) and reference code #86716984. Please make special note of the date and time of the call, as TESSCO has historically held its conference call on the day following the issuance of the news release. TESSCO is changing the date and time of the call in order to accommodate a greater number of investment community participants.

A live webcast of the conference call will be available at www.tessco.com/go/corporatepresentations. All participants should call or access the website approximately 10 minutes before the conference begins.

An archived replay of the conference call will also be available on the Company's website at www.tessco.com/go/corporatepresentations.

*Core Revenues

"Core revenues" are TESSCO’s total revenues other than and excluding revenues related to the major 3PL relationship with a Tier 1 Carrier that transitioned at the completion of fiscal year 2013. The amount of "core revenues" for a given period is determined by subtracting from total revenues, any revenues related to the major 3PL relationship for the corresponding period. There are no revenues related to this relationship in fiscal 2014, and thus, total revenues and core revenues are the same for fiscal 2014.

**Non-GAAP Information

EBITDA, a measure used by management to evaluate the Company's ongoing operations and as a general indicator of its operating cash flow (in conjunction with a cash flow statement that also includes among other items, changes in working capital and the effect of non-cash charges), is defined as income from operations, plus interest expense, net of interest income, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management believes EBITDA as well as EBITDA per share are useful to investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA per share may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA per diluted share is also a non-GAAP calculation defined as EBITDA divided by the Company's diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Additionally, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. The amounts shown for EBITDA as presented herein differ from the amounts calculated under the definition of EBITDA used in the Company's loan agreements. The definition of EBITDA as used in the Company's loan agreements is further adjusted for certain cash and non-cash charges/credits, including stock compensation expense, and is used to determine compliance with financial covenants and the ability to engage in certain activities such as incurring additional debt.

A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP to GAAP results is included as an exhibit to this release.
