November 8, 2018

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2018--PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in P erformance C ritical TEL ecom solutions, announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Highlights from Continuing Operations

Revenue of $18.4 million in the quarter and $61.7 million year to date, 22% lower in the quarter and 9% lower year-to-date compared to last year. Revenue was lower in both the antenna and test & measurement product lines in the quarter and year to date. Gross profit margin of 36.5% in the quarter and 36.3% year to date, down 6.4% in the quarter and 5.6% year-to-date compared to last year. The two primary reasons for the decrease in both the quarter and year-to-date are lower test & measurement product revenue which has higher margin compared to antenna products, and price erosion in the small cell antenna market. Net loss per share of $0.10 in the quarter and $0.22 year to date, compared to net income of $0.04 per share in the quarter and year-to-date 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 loss per share of $0.06 in the quarter and a net loss of $0.07 year to date compared to net income of $0.09 in the quarter and $0.20 year-to-date last year. The third quarter of this year included $0.04 non-GAAP restructuring charges related to the Company’s recent reorganization.Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percent of revenue of negative 3% in the quarter and positive 1% year to date compared to 11% in the quarter and 9% year-to-date last year. $37.1 million of cash and short-term investments at September 30, 2018 and no debt.

“Our small cell revenue has stabilized with wins in China, North American and Europe, and we are encouraged with the early 5G deployment activity,” said David Neumann, PCTEL’s CEO. “However, carrier spending was down on legacy networks and several antenna projects were completed in Q2, which negatively affected the quarter and 2018 year to date results. We believe that improving market conditions and our recent reorganization to improve business development will position PCTEL to take advantage of the long-term growth opportunities in 5G, antennas, and industrial IoT.”
