Magal Security Systems Ltd. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results
[August 31, 2017]

Magal Security Systems Ltd. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results


YEHUD, ISRAEL, August 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS) today announced its financial results for the three and six month period ended June 30, 2017. Management will hold an investors' conference call later today (at 9:30am Eastern Time) to discuss the results.

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS SUMMARY

  • Revenue of $13.3 million with gross margin of 50.2%;  
  • Incurred non-cash financial-expense of $1.3 million;
  • Net loss of $3.3 million in the quarter, EBITDA loss of $1.2 million;
  • Net cash and equivalents of $47.9 million at quarter-end;
  • Completed amalgamation of Aimetis and Senstar subsidiaries in Canada, leading to lower ongoing operating and tax expenses starting in the second half of 2017

SECOND QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

Revenues for the second quarter of 2017 were $13.3 million, a decrease of 3% compared with revenues of $13.6 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2017 was $6.7 million, or 50.2% of revenues, an increase of 10%, compared with a gross profit of $6.1 million or 44.5% of revenues, in the second quarter of 2016. The improvement in gross margin between quarters is due to the higher margins achieved on projects during the quarter.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $1.7 million compared to an operating loss of $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Financial expenses, net, for the second quarter of 2017 were $1.4 million compared with financial income of $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2016.  In Israel, Magal's functional currency is the Israeli Shekel and the vast majority of Magal's cash deposits are held in US dollars. Because the US dollar declined in value by 4.0%, between the end of the first quarter and the end of the second quarter of 2017, similar to the decline experienced in the prior quarter, the Company recorded a non-cash financial expense due to the reduction in the Israeli shekel value of its US dollar deposits, leading to the high level of financial expense in the current quarter.

Net loss in the second quarter of 2017 was $3.3 million, or $0.14 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.12 per share in the second quarter of 2016.

EBITDA in the second quarter of 2017 was a negative $1.2 million, compared to a negative EBITDA of $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Cash, short term deposits and restricted deposits, as of June 30, 2017, were $47.9 million, or $2.08 per share, compared with cash, short term deposits and restricted deposits of $50.7 million, or $2.21 per share, as of March 31, 2017.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Commenting on the results, Mr. Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal, said, "From a revenue standpoint, our second quarter was slightly weaker than the same quarter of last year. The increase in revenues from geographies outside of North America, partially offset the current weakness we are experiencing in the North American market. Our North American operations, which last year represented almost half of our global business, were significantly impacted this quarter by delays in critical infrastructure security spending which await clarity about the federal budget. In the interim, the cost efficiency actions we implemented in the quarter position us well for profitable growth upon the anticipated recovery in the US high-end security market in the second half of 2017."

Continued Mr. Koursh, "Since last year, we have put much effort in improving our profitability on both the operational and gross margin levels. Additionally, in the second quarter, we amalgamated Aimetis and our North American subsidiary, Senstar. This will enable additional synergies as well as lower operating expenses and ultimately higher margins, in upcoming quarters."

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks and uncertainties. Such statements are based on assumptions and expectations which may not be realized and are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which cannot be predicted with accuracy and some of which might not even be anticipated. Future events and actual results, financial and otherwise, may differ from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. A number of these risks and other factors that might cause differences, some of which could be material, along with additional discussion of forward-looking statements, are set forth in the Company's Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Information with Regard to non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company presents its financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Magal's management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions. EBITDA is provided in this press release and the accompanying supplemental information because management believes this non-GAAP measure is useful for investors and financial institutions as it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period. As presented in this release, the term EBITDA consists of net profit (loss) according to U.S. GAAP, excluding net financing expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net profit (loss) or other statement of operations data prepared in accordance with GAAP as a measure of profitability. A reconciliation between the Company's results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table below.
