Irvine, CA – September 10, 2020 – Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global provider of software as a service (“SaaS”), engineering services, and intelligent hardware for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Remote Environment Management (REM), today reported results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 that ended June 30, 2020.

 

Net revenue totaled $17.4 million, up 71% year over year and 5% sequentially.

 

GAAP EPS was ($0.06), compared to ($0.19) in the prior fiscal quarter.

 

Non-GAAP EPS was $0.04, compared to $0.02 in the prior fiscal quarter.

 

“We executed on our plan despite the ongoing challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic,” stated Paul Pickle, president and CEO of Lantronix. “Revenues for the fourth quarter grew 5% sequentially and 71% year over year, while year over year non-GAAP operating expenses fell from 50% to 32% of revenues. As we look to fiscal 2021, the team is laser-focused on continuing the transformation of Lantronix through increased scale, improved operating efficiencies, growth of our software platform, and the integration of additional value-added technologies and products through acquisition.

 

Business Outlook

 

Due to the ongoing uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic that continue to impact supply chains, Lantronix is transitioning from specific quarterly guidance in favor of annual growth targets. For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, Lantronix expects net revenue to be flat to up slightly and non-GAAP EPS growth on a sequential basis. For the full year fiscal 2021, the company currently expects revenue growth of 20%-25%, with year over year non-GAAP EPS growth on the order of 120%-160%.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Lantronix believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial information, when presented in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s financial condition and results of operations. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

 

Non-GAAP net income (loss) consists of net income (loss) excluding (i) share-based compensation and the employer portion of withholding taxes on stock grants, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) interest income (expense), (iv) other income (expense), (v) income tax provision (benefit), (vi) severance and restructuring charges, (vii) acquisition related costs, (viii) impairment of long-lived assets, (viiii) amortization of purchased intangibles, and (x) amortization of manufacturing profit in acquired inventory.

 

Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income (loss) by non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, the calculation of GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, which for GAAP purposes is treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method.

 

Guidance on earnings per share growth is provided only on a non-GAAP basis due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of certain items that have been excluded from the forward-looking non-GAAP measures, and a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP guidance has not been provided because certain factors that are materially significant to Lantronix’s ability to estimate the excluded items are not accessible or estimable on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort.

In addition, actual results may differ as a result of additional risks and uncertainties of which we are currently unaware or which we do not currently view as material to our business. For these reasons, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements we make speak only as of the date on which they are made. We expressly disclaim any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof to conform such statements to actual results or to changes in our opinions or expectations, except as required by applicable law or the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market[] LLC. If we do update or correct any forward-looking statements, investors should not conclude that we will make additional updates or corrections
