Lantronix Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Lantronix, Inc. (the "company") (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, today reported results for its second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Financial Highlights Net revenue of $12.2 million Gross profit as a percentage of net revenue of 49.6% GAAP net loss of $(412,000), or ($0.03) per share Non-GAAP net income of $70,000, or breakeven per share Operational Highlights In October 2012, the company entered into an agreement with Ingram Micro Europe, a division of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the largest global wholesale provider of technology products and supply chain management services, under which Ingram Micro Europe will provide advanced logistics, product delivery and distribution services for Lantronix throughout Europe. In November 2012, the company announced a sales and marketing partnership agreement with DataVision, New York's largest independent computer and video retailer, under which DataVision agreed to market and sell the Lantronix award-winning xPrintServer™ family of mobile printing solutions both online and through DataVision's flagship store. In November 2012, OKI Data Americas, a leading provider of print management solutions, expanded its relationship with Lantronix to become the first printer manufacturer to resell the Lantronix xPrintServer mobile printing solution. In January 2013, the company entered into an agreement with Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: ARW), to extend Arrow's product sales programs, product delivery and distribution services for Lantronix throughout the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Product Highlights In October 2012, the company began shipping the xDirect™ device server -- a compact serial-to-Ethernet device server that provides quick and easy connectivity to virtually any device or machine with a serial interface. In November 2012, the company announced the launch and worldwide availability of its new vSLM™ -- the Virtual Secure Lantronix Management Appliance -- a software solution designed to enable IT (information technology) managers to seamlessly integrate and manage multiple pieces of IT equipment anywhere in the enterprise. In November 2012, the company launched and began shipping the xPrintServer -- Office Edition, an enterprise version of its award-winning mobile printing solution.

"Our operational and financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 reflect the continued progress we achieved in executing on our strategic plan and marked the fourth consecutive quarter of non-GAAP profitability," said Lantronix CEO Kurt Busch. "During the quarter, we continued to expand our distribution and sales relationships worldwide, launched three new products, and enhanced Lantronix' visibility in the marketplace through increased marketing efforts." Financial Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2013 Ended December 31, 2012 Net revenue was $12.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of $1.7 million or 16%, compared to $10.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and an increase of $1.0 million or 9%, compared to $11.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. In large part, the sequential and year-over-year revenue growth was due to increased unit sales of our xPrintServer and SLC console server product families.


Gross profit as a percentage of net revenue was 49.6% for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 48.2% for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and 48.8% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Operating expenses were $6.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $6.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and increased by $0.5 million or 9%, compared to $5.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The sequential change in operating expenses was primarily due to an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses related to a marketing plan we initiated in November 2012 to drive sales growth and brand awareness for the xPrintServer product family.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $(412,000), or ($0.03) per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $(1.4 million), or ($0.13) per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and a GAAP net loss of $(430,000), or ($0.03) per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $70,000, or $0.00 per share compared to non-GAAP net loss of $(629,000) or $(0.06) per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and non-GAAP net income of $48,000, or $0.00 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2012 were $8.5 million, compared to $11.4 million as of June 30, 2012. The decrease in cash was primarily due to an increase in inventory from $6.0 million as of June 30, 2012 to $9.7 million as of December 31, 2012 to support buffer stock and anticipated customer demand.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Lantronix believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial information, when presented in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company's financial condition and results of operations. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Management believes that non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share are important measures of the company's business. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance.

Non-GAAP operating expenses consist of operating expenses excluding (i) share-based compensation and related payroll taxes (ii) depreciation and amortization, and (iii) restructuring charges.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) consists of net income (loss) excluding (i) non-GAAP adjustments to operating expenses, (ii) interest income (expense), (iii) other income (expense), and (iv) income tax provision (benefit).

Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income (loss) by non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, the calculation of GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, which for GAAP purposes is treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method.
