Third Quarter 2013 Results
Revenue was $17.6 million, a climb of about 19% from the second quarter of 2013, but a 5% drop from the comparable quarter of 2012, when revenue was $18.6 million.
Gross profit decreased by 450 basis points to 19.7% from 24.2% in the second quarter of 2013, and 250 points from 22.2% in the third quarter of 2012. The drop was largely attributed to the timing of revenue recognition related to in process software orders, to the timing of orders and shipments, with some orders anticipated for the third quarter slipping to the fourth quarter.
It anticipates that as higher-margin software and service revenue continue to grow, margins will continue to return to this long-term increasing trend starting in the fourth quarter. The reported net loss, a little less than breakeven, at $167,000 was sharply down from $1.1 million in the second quarter of this year, vs. a loss of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2012. On an EPS basis, the loss per share was $0.04, compared to $0.15 loss per share in the third quarter of 2012.
The operating loss was $0.2 million in this year's third quarter vs. $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to improved margins and cost savings. EBITDA (a non-GAAP measurement that management uses to measure progress) for the third quarter of 2013 was positive $466,000, and a $849,000 positive swing from the second quarter of this year.
Although unit volumes were up, the drop in revenue compared with the same period last year was largely related to an increase in the number of consumer devices sold with much lower unit prices and a consequent decrease in the higher priced rugged devices sold.
