PCTEL Reports $20.6 Million in First Quarter Revenue

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI) announced its results for the first quarter
ended March 31, 2019.

Highlights

  • Revenue of $20.6 million in the quarter, 5% lower compared to
    the prior year. Compared to the first quarter 2018, the first quarter
    revenue was higher by 38% for the test and measurement product line
    and lower by 15% for the antenna product line.
  • Gross profit margin of 42.0% in the quarter, up 5.8% compared
    to gross profit margin in the prior year. The increase in the quarter
    is a result of improved profitability for scanning receivers and
    antennas.
  • GAAP net loss per share of $0.02 in the quarter compared to a
    GAAP loss of $0.05 per share in the quarter last year.
  • Non-GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA are measures the Company
    uses to reflect the results of its core earnings.
    A reconciliation
    of those non-GAAP measures to our financial statements is provided
    later in the press release.
  • Non-GAAP net income per share of $0.04 in the quarter compared
    to a net loss of $0.01 in the first quarter last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percent of revenue of 7% in the quarter compared
    to 2% in the prior year.
  • $35.0 million of cash and short-term investments at March 31, 2019
    and no debt.

“We are pleased that early demand for 5G test and measurement tools
continues to drive revenue growth and profitability for scanning
receivers. We expect this to continue as wireless operators deploy 5G
networks in the US, Europe and Asia,” said David Neumann, PCTEL’s CEO.
“In addition, 5G and enterprise Wi-Fi networks require engineered
antenna and radio systems to enable industrial IoT for both public and
private applications. We are positioned well to provide our antenna
solutions for these applications in enterprise wireless, intelligent
transportation and industrial IoT markets.”
