Sierra Wireless Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

On a GAAP basis, gross margin was $36.5 million, or 33.3% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $30.1 million, or 31.5% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2012. Operating expenses were $40.4 million and loss from operations was $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to operating expenses of $36.6 million and a loss from operations of $6.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. Net loss from continuing operations was $6.7 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013, compared to net loss of $8.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012. Net earnings for continuing and discontinued operations was $61.4 million, or $2.00 per diluted share, compared to net earnings of $3.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase in net earnings mainly reflects the gain on the sale of the AirCard business.

On a non-GAAP basis, gross margin was 33.4% in the second quarter of 2013, compared to 31.6% in the second quarter of 2012. Operating expenses were $35.1 million and earnings from operations were $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to operating expenses of $30.5 million and loss from operations of $0.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") was $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. Net earnings from continuing operations were $1.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $3.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP results exclude the impact of stock-based compensation expense, acquisition costs, the gain on sale of the AirCard business, restructuring costs, integration costs, disposition costs, acquisition amortization, impairment, foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of balance sheet accounts, and certain tax adjustments. We disclose non-GAAP amounts as we believe that these measures provide our shareholders with better information about actual operating results and assist in comparisons from one period to another.
