Redline Communications Reports Q2 2015 Results

TORONTO, Aug. 5 2015 /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 months ended June 30, 2015 (Q2 2015).

Q2 2015 Financial Highlights

  • $9.0M Total Revenue, up 4%
  • 58% Gross Margin
  • $0.6M Adjusted EBITDA²
  • $0.3M Net Profit
  • $16.1M Cash
  • $8.9M new Order Bookings²
  • $12.8M Order Backlog²

Total revenue for Q2 2015 was $9.0 million, up 4% over the same period in 2014. Overall operating expenses were $5.0 million for Q2 2015, up 5% over the $4.3 million for the same period last year. Overall gross margin for Q2 2015 was 58%, down 5 percentage points from the 61% reported in the same period in 2014, largely attributed to a decrease in professional services revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 2015 was $0.6 million or 7% of revenue, an decrease of $0.4 million over the Adjusted EBITDA of $1.1 million or 12% of revenue reported in the same period in 2014. The Adjusted EBITDA decrease was primarily a result of the decrease in margins associated with professional services revenues and an increase in operating costs.

"Redline continues to see revenue growth in the oil and gas sector outside of North America despite ongoing low oil prices. In addition, revenues in other vertical markets, specifically telecom and public safety also increased", said Robert Williams, Redline CEO. "This revenue diversity and ongoing expense management has resulted in a positive EBITDA for the 6th consecutive quarter."

Net profit for Q2 2015 was $0.3 million or $0.02 per share, a $0.3 million decrease over the net profit of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per share reported in the same period in 2014.  As of June 30, 2015 the Company ended the quarter with $16.1 million of cash, an increase of $0.8 million over the $15.3 million as at March 31, 2015.

Order Bookings for the three months ended June 30, 2015 were $8.9 million, down 23% over the same period in 2014.  The Order Backlog at June 30, 2015 was $12.8 million.

In addition to Order Bookings, Redline tracks pilot projects in the Energy sector as a leading indicator of future Order Bookings for this sector. The Company added 4 new pilot projects in Q2 2015 bringing the total of ongoing oil and gas pilot programs to 30 up from 15 at this time in 2014. These projects vary in size and scope and give prospective customers the opportunity to evaluate Redline's solutions in a real field setting.

The Company had 17,035,462 common shares outstanding as of June 30, 2015.
