Sierra Wireless, Inc. today reported results for its second quarter ending June 30, 2014. 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.

“In the second quarter, strong organic revenue growth, combined with a solid contribution from recent acquisitions, enabled continued profitability gains,” said Jason Cohenour, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In the second half, we expect to deliver continued revenue and profitability growth, while also pursuing additional strategic acquisitions to expand our leadership position in the machine-to-machine (M2M) market.”

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $135.0 million, an increase of 23.2% compared to $109.6 million in the second quarter of 2013, and an increase of 11.4% compared to $121.2 million in the first quarter of 2014. Revenue from OEM Solutions was $116.6 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 22.6% compared to $95.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. Revenue from Enterprise Solutions was $18.4 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 27.0% compared to $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. On a consolidated basis, organic revenue growth, which excludes contribution from the recently acquired In Motion Technology and AnyData businesses, was 16.8% compared to the second quarter of 2013.
