TASER Reports Quarterly Revenue of $37.2 Million

AXON and EVIDENCE.com Bookings Increase 92% Sequentially to $11.3 Million

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TASR), today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Financial Summary:

  • Net sales were $37.2 million in the quarter, an increase of $5.0 million, or 15.5%, compared to second quarter 2013 net sales of $32.2 million. The increase was driven by total law enforcement weapon handle sales which increased $2.6 million in the second quarter compared to the prior year. AXON® cameras, EVIDENCE.com and TASER® CAM™ HD recorders also contributed to the net sales increase in the second quarter. International sales were $5.0 million in the quarter which is essentially flat compared to the prior year.

  • TASER Weapons segment revenues grew $2.4 million year-over-year, or 7.9%, to $32.7 million in the second quarter of 2014.

  • EVIDENCE.com & Video segment revenues increased by $2.6 million, or 136.5%, to $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 in comparison to the prior year. AXON cameras and EVIDENCE.com service bookings increased $9.3 million, to $11.3 million, over second quarter 2013 bookings of $2.0 million.

  • Gross margin in the second quarter of 2014 was 62.4%, compared to 61.4% in the same period last year. The improvement in gross margin in the second quarter of 2014 was driven by the 15.5% increase in net sales which resulted in better leverage of overhead expenses, increased sales prices and lower EVIDENCE.com depreciation costs.

  • Sales, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses of $13.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 increased $2.6 million, from $10.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A increased to 36.4% in the second quarter 2014 compared to 34.0% in the prior year. Within the current quarter SG&A, there is approximately $2.2 million relating to two settlements of commercial litigation cases that related to disagreements with two former distributors. Excluding settlement expense, SG&A for the second quarter would have been approximately $11.3 million, or 30.5% of revenues. Compared to the prior year, personnel expenses increased $0.4 million as the Company has increased customer-facing positions as well as some administrative functions. Expenses also increased in relation to TASER-hosted Technology Summits which take place to promote law enforcement awareness about recent developments in cloud technology in the past year. Increases were also seen in travel expense as the Company works to grow its international presence. These increases were partially offset by lower spending on liability insurance, expert witness fees and legal fees. The Company expects to see the elevated spend in SG&A continue through 2014 as initiatives to grow the top line internationally and in the EVIDENCE.com & Video segment are executed and as further infrastructure is put in place.

  • Research and development (R&D) expenses of $3.5 million for the second quarter of 2014 increased $1.5 million when compared to the second quarter of 2013 driven by additional personnel expense related to EVIDENCE.com & Video segment product development initiatives. The Company continues to expect increased expenses in R&D through 2014 as it launches the development of next generation and adjacent cloud software and mobile products, as well as adds enhanced and new functionality to EVIDENCE.com.

  • Income from operations decreased $0.6 million, or 8.8%, to $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $6.8 million in the second quarter of 2013.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $9.0 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase from of $9.5 million in the second quarter of 2013.

  • Net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $3.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $4.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013.

  • In the second quarter of 2014, the Company generated $1.7 million in cash from operating activities. Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $59.8 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014, down from $63.4 million at December 31, 2013. Within cash, cash equivalents and investments were $10.9 million and $12.0 million in long-term investments as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

  • The Company completed $19.6 million of stock repurchases during the quarter, purchasing approximately 1.5 million shares for an average cost of $13.16 per share.

"We hit another milestone this quarter by nearly doubling EVIDENCE.com and AXON bookings sequentially to $11.3 million," stated Rick Smith, TASER's CEO. "The positive momentum in the law enforcement market towards wearable technologies and cloud solutions is continuing to build, further encouraging our investment in and passion to grow this business. Major cities in the U.S. and abroad are continuing to look to TASER to provide secure and cost-effective solutions and we continue to host Technology Summits and other events around the world as education and discussion platforms for our customers. Beyond the EVIDENCE.com segment, we continue to drive stable growth in the North American weapons business which grew 9% compared to the prior year as a result of our current strong smart weapon platform.

"We intend to continue to invest in R&D initiatives related to our next generation technology products, as well as to develop innovative new features for existing video and weapons products," Smith continued. "We remain dedicated to establishing a leading position in this space in 2014 and beyond. Our investments in R&D, and sales and marketing, combined with TASER's market-leading products and excellent customer service should drive long-term value for all our stakeholders," concluded Smith.

AXON flex, AXON body and EVIDENCE.com bookings is a statistical measure defined as the sales price of orders placed in the relevant time period. Bookings are an indication of the activity the Company is seeing relative to AXON flex, AXON body and EVIDENCE.com.

To gain more immediate feedback regarding activity for AXON flex, AXON body and EVIDENCE.com, we also review bookings for these products. We consider bookings to be a statistical measure defined as the sales price of orders (not invoiced sales) placed in the relevant fiscal period, regardless of when the products or services ultimately will be provided. Some bookings will be invoiced in subsequent years. Due to municipal government funding rules, certain of the future year amounts included in bookings are subject to budget appropriation or other contract cancellation clauses. Although TASER has entered into contracts for the delivery of products and services in the future and anticipates the contracts will be completed, if agencies do not appropriate money in future year budgets or invoke a cancellation clause, revenue associated with these bookings will not ultimately be recognized, resulting in a future reduction to bookings.

For more information relative to our revenue recognition policies, please reference our SEC filings.
