ID Systems' CEO Discusses Q4 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Stocks in this article: IDSY

These risks could cause the company’s actual results for the current fiscal year and beyond to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the company.

The fourth quarter of 2011 continued the positive momentum we reported at the end of Q3. Our Q4 revenue of $11.8 million is our highest quarterly revenue achievement to date, a 64% year-over-year improvement from Q4 2010 and a 5% sequential increase over Q3, 2011. The fourth quarter 2011 also marks our sixth consecutive quarter of sequential revenue growth.

Our performance was driven by increased sales across all of our wireless asset management product segments including continued expansion of our rental car management system for Avis, the continued strong resurgence of our material handling and fleet management business and robust growth from our trailer and container tracking solutions.

In addition to achieving record revenue, we maintained a strong stable gross margin north of 50% for the quarter and continue to adhere to the cost reduction plan we put in place at the end of 2010.

As a result, we broke even on a GAAP basis for Q4 and increased our non-GAAP net income to $0.07 per share from $0.06 in the prior quarter. For the full year, I am very pleased to report that we achieved essentially all of the goals we set out to accomplish.

We increased revenue to 52% to a record 39.3 million with success in every strategic area including expansion of business with core customers, new product and market developments and new customer wins through both direct and indirect sales channels. We continue to book a substantial volume of recurring revenue, $16.4 million or 42% of total revenue in 2011.

We maintained a healthy 52% gross margin for the year, exceeding our historical target of 50%. We reduced overhead expenses by $2.3 million or 8% overall which is a particularly notable achievement when you consider it side by side with our 52% revenue increase. And we significantly reduced our net loss by more than two-thirds on a GAAP basis and by 94% on a non-GAAP basis as Ned will discuss in a moment.
