SECOND QUARTER 2016 RESULTS
Revenues in the second quarter of 2016 were $13.6 million, a decrease of 13.2% compared with revenues of $15.7 million in the second quarter of 2015 and an increase of 8.1% compared with revenues of $12.6 million in the prior quarter.
Gross profit in the second quarter of 2016 was $6.1 million, or 44.5% of revenues, compared with gross profit of $7.3 million or 46.4% of revenues in the second quarter of 2015 and gross profit of $6.2 million, or 49.6% of revenues, in the previous quarter. The variance in the gross margin was due to the mix of projects and products sold in the quarter.
Operating expenses in the second quarter increased to $8.3 million compared to $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2015. The majority of the increase was due to increased expenses associated with the Aimetis acquisition.
Operating loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $2.2 million compared to operating income of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2015 and operating income of $0.6 million in the previous quarter of 2016.
Contributing to the operating loss was a $0.5 million quarterly amortization of purchase price allocation and retention expenses related to the Aimetis acquisition that is expected to continue for the next two years, after which it will be reduced.
Net loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $2.0 million, or ($0.12) per share, compared to net income of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, in the second quarter of 2015 and a net loss of $0.5 million or ($0.03) per share in the previous quarter of 2016.
Cash, short term deposits and restricted deposits, net of bank debt, as of June 30, 2016, was $22.9 million, or $1.39 per share, compared with cash and short term deposits, net of current bank debt, of $31.1 million, or $1.90 per share, at December 31, 2015. On April 1, 2016, Senstar, Magal’s wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary acquired Aimetis. Senstar paid the shareholders of Aimetis approximately $15.2 million in cash.
Commenting on the results, Mr. Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal, said, “We have been active on the strategic front in 2016. At the start of the second quarter, we completed the acquisition of Aimetis, adding a state-of-the-art video surveillance offering. This move has significantly broadened our product portfolio and is very much in line with our long-term strategy of evolving into an increasingly product and service focused company.”
“Given the strong opportunities in our end-markets, we are investing strongly in marketing and sales and R&D at Aimetis. In addition, in the coming weeks we will be releasing the latest Aimetis’ VMS software and we expect to see a resulting sales growth. Our increased operating expenses in the first half of 2016 reflect these investments and the costs associated with our acquisition of Aimetis. More broadly, in the past few months, our overall backlog has improved as we have received a number of larger orders from customers in Latin America, Africa and Israel, with deliverables towards the end of the year. This underlies our expectation that the second half of 2016 will be better than the first half,” concluded Mr. Koursh.
