Redline Communications Reports Q2 2014 Results

TORONTO, Aug. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL), a leading provider of mission-critical networks, today announced unaudited operating results¹ for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

Financial summary for the three months ended June 30, 2014 (Q2 2014):

  • Revenue of $8.7 million
  • Gross Margin of 63%
  • Adjusted EBITDA² of $1.1 million
  • Net Profit of $0.6 million
  • Increased Cash by $6.3 million to $20.9 million
  • Order Bookings² of $11.5 million
  • Order Backlog² of $18.2 million

Overall Revenue for Q2 2014 was $8.7 million, down 3% over the same period in 2013.  An increase of approximately $1 million in revenue from oil and gas customers was offset by a decrease in sales to customers in other verticals of approximately $1.1 million when compared to 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 2014 was $1.1 million, an improvement of $1.8 million over the Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.8 million for Q2 2013. The difference can be attributed to continued strong gross margins and lower operating costs in the quarter resulting from the restructuring program initiated in December 2013.

"22% quarter-over-quarter revenue growth combined with continued strong gross margins and well-managed operating costs has enabled us to realize positive EBITDA and increase our cash," said George Kypreos, Redline CFO. "We are delivering to our plan, and we're very pleased with this positive momentum." 

Gross margins for Q2 2014 were 63%, which compares to 64% reported for Q2 2013.

Operating expenses for Q2 2014, were $4.7 million, a decrease of 31% compared to $6.9 million reported for the same period in 2013, with the decrease attributed to the restructuring plan put in place during December 2013.

Net profit for Q2 2014 was $0.6 million or $0.04 per share, a $1.1 million improvement over the net loss of $0.5 million, or ($0.04) per share reported in the same period in 2013.

Positive EBITDA combined with the previously announced receipt of approximately CDN $2.1 million in consideration from the exercise of warrants increased cash by $6.3 million, bringing the Company's cash balance to $20.9 million at June 30, 2014.

Order Bookings for Q2 2014 were $11.5 million, up 29% over Q1 2014 and up 3% over the same period in 2013.  Total Order Backlog at June 30, 2014 was $18.2 million.

The second quarter of 2014 included a previously announced large contract from a new customer to provide 5 wireless oilfield networks. Smaller contracts were also signed for a video surveillance project in Mexico and for Redline's new offshore product. These new bookings were largely offset by reductions in total order value from military customers during the same period in 2013.

"This was a strong and encouraging quarter for Redline," said Robert Williams, Redline CEO. "Orders came from several market segments and especially from oil and gas where our pilot program continues to demonstrate traction.  Looking forward, we are comfortable that our expenses are in line with our revenues and we continue to see opportunities in all of our target markets to drive our top line growth."

Redline tracks the number of pilot projects within the Energy sector as an indicator of future Order Bookings. Pilot projects vary in size and scope and give prospective customers the opportunity to evaluate Redline's solutions in a real field setting.  In Q2 2014, the Company added 2 new pilot projects and converted two existing pilot projects into deployed networks. Four other networks were deployed in Q2 2014 bypassing a pilot stage. This brings the total ongoing oil and gas pilot programs to 15, up from two at June 30, 2013.
