Sierra Wireless Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Sierra Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today reported second quarter 2012 results. All results are reported in U.S. dollars and are prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), except as otherwise indicated below.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $167.4 million, compared to $139.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, and $150.3 million in the first quarter of 2012. The year-over-year revenue increase of 19.7 percent was driven by strong sales in our 4G Mobile Computing products and steady growth in our Machine-to-Machine (“M2M”) business. Mobile Computing revenue was $89.9 million, compared to $66.0 million in the second quarter of 2011. M2M revenue was $77.5 million, compared to $73.9 million in the second quarter of 2011.

“Exceptionally strong sales of our 4G Mobile Computing products, combined with steady growth in our Machine-to-Machine business, led to higher than expected revenue and profitability in the second quarter of 2012,” said Jason Cohenour, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, our successful acquisition of Sagemcom’s M2M business expands our leading market share position and further accelerates our growth in the exciting Machine-to-Machine market.”

On a GAAP basis, gross margin was $51.3 million, or 30.7 percent of revenue, in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $39.1 million, or 28.0 percent of revenue, in the second quarter of 2011. Operating expenses were $45.1 million and earnings from operations were $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to operating expenses of $45.4 million and a loss from operations of $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. Net earnings were $3.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $6.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011. The second quarter of 2012 results included $2.1 million in acquisition and restructuring costs, compared to $0.4 million in restructuring and integration costs in the second quarter of 2011.
