Novatel Wireless Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: NVTL

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent wireless solutions, announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Revenue in the second quarter was $91.1 million, up 6% compared to $85.9 million in the first quarter of 2013. GAAP net loss in the quarter was $7.9 million, or $(0.23) per share, improved from a loss of $9.1 million, or $(0.27) per share, in the first quarter of 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the quarter was $6.7 million, or $(0.20) per share, improved from a loss of $7.4 million, or $(0.22) per share, in the first quarter of 2013. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures is included in the accompanying tables.

“In the second quarter we made solid progress across both M2M and mobile computing, which again drove sequential revenue growth,” said Peter Leparulo, CEO of Novatel Wireless. “We continued to advance our M2M business, led by 19% sequential growth of our asset management, or integrated, solutions for our targeted vertical markets – fleet management, asset tracking, after market telematics and telemetry. During the quarter, we built upon our industry leading product portfolio with the announcement of our SA 2100 and MT 3060 product families.

“In mobile computing, revenue from our MiFi® product line grew 6% sequentially, even while supply constraints moderately limited our shipments in the quarter. With the release of our Tri-band MiFi at Sprint, we have now launched 4G LTE MiFi products with all three major North American carriers. We are leveraging the MiFi technology platform into evolutionary new products that we intend to introduce in the near future.”

  • On July 19, 2013, Novatel Wireless commercially launched its Tri-band MiFi 500 LTE device with Sprint, making it among the first tri-band devices to join Sprint’s family of mobile broadband devices providing access to Sprint’s 4G LTE network at 800MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz.
  • On July 1, 2013, Novatel Wireless announced the availability of samples for the first products in its generation-skipping MT 3060 platform family.
