Magal Security Systems Ltd. Reports Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

YEHUD, Israel, Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS) today announced its financial results for the three and nine month period ended September 30, 2017. Management will hold an investors' conference call later today (at 10am Eastern Time) to discuss the results.

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS SUMMARY

  • Revenue of $13.7 million, up 3% sequentially;
  • Breakeven on EBITDA compared with a loss of $1.2 million in the prior quarter;
  • Operating expenses have narrowed significantly;
  • Net loss of $0.2 million in the quarter, significant improvement versus net loss of $3.3 million in prior quarter
  • Net cash and equivalents of $48.0 million at quarter-end;
  • Strong bookings in the third quarter;
  • Expect sequential revenue growth for the fourth quarter.

THIRD QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

Revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $13.7 million. This represents a decrease of 36% compared with revenues of $21.3 million in the third quarter of 2016 and an increase of 3% compared with revenues of $13.3 million in the prior quarter.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2017 was $6.5 million (47.7% of revenues). This is compared with $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2016 (51.1% of revenues) and $6.7 million in the prior quarter (50.2% of revenues). The variation in margin between quarters is reflective of the product mix sold in the quarter which had a comparatively higher portion projects during the quarter.

Operating expenses in the quarter were $7.1 million. This is an improvement compared with $9.3 million in expenses in the third quarter of 2016 and $8.3 million in the prior quarter. The reduction in expenses is primarily due to the steps taken earlier in the year, including the amalgamation of the Aimetis and Senstar subsidiaries in North America.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $0.5 million. This is compared to an operating income of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2016 and an operating loss of $1.7 million in the prior quarter.

Net loss in the third quarter of 2017 was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a net income of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per share in the third quarter of 2016 and a net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.14 per share in the prior quarter.

EBITDA in the third quarter of 2017 was at breakeven. This is compared to an EBITDA of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2016 and a negative $1.2 million in the prior quarter.

Cash, short term deposits and restricted deposits, as of September 30, 2017, were $48.0 million, or $2.09 per share, compared with cash, short term deposits and restricted deposits of $47.9 million, or $2.08 per share, as of March 31, 2017.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Commenting on the results, Mr. Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal,said, "While we showed a slight improvement in revenue over the previous quarter, our North American operations continued to be impacted this quarter by delays in security spending. On the positive side, we see a start of a recovery in North America. Globally, we have seen solid growth in order levels in the third quarter and beyond. Just to highlight, we recently announced a number of orders amounting to around $9 million for airport security solutions as well as orders to protect correctional facilities. We have already started deliveries on these orders and we expect to recognize revenues in the fourth quarter and next year. We also expect further orders for our turn-key security solutions to materialize in the near future."

Continued Mr. Koursh, "We have put much effort in improving our profitability on both the operational and gross margin levels. Our efforts have enabled us to enhance some inter-company synergies, while significantly reducing our operating expenses by almost a quarter versus last year and 15% versus the previous quarter. Our efforts led to a return to breakeven on the EBITDA level this quarter. We expect to continue our sequential revenue growth into the fourth quarter."
