Revenue in Q3'22 was $166.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA was $15.4 million

Sierra Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) reported results for its third quarter of 2022. All results are reported in U.S. dollars and are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP" or "GAAP"), except as otherwise indicated below. 1

Third Quarter 2022 Compared to Third Quarter 2021

  • Revenue was $166.1 million, an increase of 101.4% compared to the third quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to strong demand and the realization of investments in inventory to combat the ongoing supply chain tightness. Revenues in the comparative period were also impacted by manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam as a result of COVID-19 related restrictions.
  • Gross margin was 34.1% as compared to 29.3% in the third quarter of 2021. Gross margin increased due to price increases and the comparative period was negatively impacted by costs resulting from the manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam caused by COVID-19.
  • Operating expenses were $61.2 million compared to $61.4 million in the third quarter of 2021. Third quarter operating expenses included $10.1 million related to the Transaction, as discussed below. Operating expenses in the comparative period included an impairment charge of $11.5 million.
  • Net loss from continuing operations was $10.3 million, compared to $38.4 million in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Adjusted earnings from continuing operations* was $10.0 million, or earnings of $0.25 per share, as compared to a loss of $20.7 million, or loss of $0.56 per share in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $15.4 million compared to a loss of $15.0 million in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Connectivity, software, and services revenue was $29.0 million, a decrease of 17.8% compared to the third quarter of 2021. This decrease was due to the sale of the Omnilink offender monitoring business in the second quarter of 2022, the impact of the shutdown of 2G/3G networks in the United States on our home security business, and the impact of the wind down of 2G/3G networks in Sweden on our enhanced carrier connectivity service lines.
  • On October 21, 2022, we signed a definitive agreement and closed the sale of our legacy home security business for gross proceeds of $7.6 million in cash.
  • Monthly recurring revenue ("MRR") 2, 3 was $8.7 million in September 2022 compared to $9.3 million in September 2021. The decrease is primarily due to the impact of the wind down of 2G/3G networks in Sweden on our enhanced carrier connectivity service lines.

Segmented Information

IoT Solutions

Revenue from IoT Solutions increased 124.2% to $120.3 million as compared to $53.7 million in the third quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to strong demand for connected devices globally and the realization of investments in inventory to combat the ongoing supply chain tightness. Increase in demand includes acceleration in IoT modules deployment across our industrial customers. In addition, revenues in the comparative period were negatively impacted by manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam caused by COVID-19. IoT Solutions gross margin was 29.1%, compared to 19.9% in the third quarter of 2021. The increase in gross margin was due to price increases and improved absorption of fixed costs from increased volume, partially offset by product mix. Gross margin in the comparative period was also negatively impacted by costs resulting from the manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam caused by COVID-19.

Enterprise Solutions

Revenue from Enterprise Solutions increased 59.0% to $45.8 million as compared to $28.8 million in the third quarter of 2021. The increase was due to strong demand for routers in our key industrial and public safety verticals, partially offset by a decline in connectivity, software, and services revenue resulting from the sale of the Omnilink offender monitoring business in the second quarter of 2022 and the impact of the shutdown of 2G/3G networks in the United States on our home security business. In addition, revenues in the comparative period were negatively impacted by manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam. Enterprise Solutions gross margin was 47.3%, similar to gross margin of 46.8% in the third quarter of 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash at the end of the third quarter of 2022 were $126.0 million, a decrease of $1.4 million from the second quarter of 2022.

Acquisition by Semtech Corporation

On August 2, 2022, we entered into a definitive agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") with Semtech Corporation and a subsidiary of Semtech Corporation (the "Purchaser") pursuant to which the Purchaser will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Sierra Wireless (the "Transaction"). Under the terms of the Transaction, Sierra Wireless shareholders will receive $31 in cash per share (in U.S. dollars).

The Transaction, which is not subject to any financing conditions, is to be carried out by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act. On September 27, 2022, at a special meeting, Sierra Wireless securityholders approved the Transaction. On September 29, 2022, the Supreme Court of British Columbia approved the plan of arrangement. On October 3, 2022, the Purchaser received a no action letter from the Canadian Competition Bureau, satisfying the Canadian Competition Act approval condition to closing the Transaction. The Transaction remains subject to regulatory approval under the United States Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. On October 18, 2022, we announced that the Company and the Purchaser each received a request for additional information and documentary material (commonly known as a "second request") from the U.S. Department of Justice in connection with the Transaction. The second requests were issued under notification requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. The outside date for closing the Transaction provided under the Arrangement Agreement, inclusive of extensions, is March 3, 2023, unless extended further by mutual agreement of the parties.

______________________________
1
Non-GAAP financial measures referred to in this news release are labeled as "non-GAAP measure" or designated as such with an asterisk (*). Please see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for explanations of why the Company uses these non-GAAP measures and "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results by Quarter" for reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measures.

2 MRR is defined as the monthly recurring revenue generated from connectivity, software, and services as well as usage fees from current customers. We continue to monitor MRR as a measure of performance in our recurring revenue. MRR does not have any standardized meaning and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. MRR should be viewed independently of revenue and deferred revenue and is not intended to be combined with or to replace either of those items. MRR is not a forecast.

3 With the sale of our Omnilink offender monitoring business in the second quarter of 2022 and our home security business in October of 2022, revenues from these businesses have been excluded from MRR for the current and prior periods.

4 In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the results of operations of the Automotive Business are reported as discontinued operations in our consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP on a basis consistent for all periods presented. In addition to results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental indicators of our operating performance. The term "non-GAAP financial measure" is used to refer to a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that: (i) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP in a company's statement of earnings, balance sheet or statement of cash flows; or (ii) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented.

Our non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are adjusted earnings (loss) from continuing operations*, basic and diluted adjusted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations* and adjusted EBITDA* (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization).

Adjusted earnings (loss) from continuing operations* excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes, phantom RSU expense which represents expenses related to compensation units settled in cash based on the stock price at vesting, restructuring costs, government grants related to COVID-19 relief, CEO retirement/search, impairment, gain on sale of Omnilink, the ransomware incident, COVID-19 factory constraint incremental costs, transaction costs, certain other non-recurring costs or recoveries, acquisition-related amortization, the impact of foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of certain balance sheet accounts, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses on forward contracts, recognition of cumulative translation adjustments on dissolution of subsidiaries, and certain tax adjustments.

Adjusted EBITDA* is defined as net earnings (loss) from continuing operations plus stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes, phantom RSU expense which represents expenses related to compensation units settled in cash based on the stock price at vesting, restructuring costs, government grants related to COVID-19 relief, CEO retirement/search, impairment, gain on sale of Omnilink, the ransomware incident, COVID-19 factory constraint incremental costs, transaction costs, certain other non-recurring costs or recoveries, amortization, interest and other income (expense), foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of certain balance sheet accounts, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses on forward contracts, recognition of cumulative translation adjustments on dissolution of subsidiaries, and income tax expense (recovery). Adjusted EBITDA* is a metric used by investors and analysts for valuation purposes and is an important indicator of our operating performance and our ability to generate liquidity through operating cash flow that will fund future working capital needs and fund future capital expenditures.

We use the above-noted non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes and to allow us to assess the performance of our business before including the impacts of the items noted above as they affect the comparability of our financial results. These non-GAAP measures are reviewed regularly by management and the Board of Directors as part of the ongoing internal assessment of our operating performance.

We disclose these non-GAAP financial measures as we believe they provide useful information to investors and analysts to assist them in their evaluation of our operating results and to assist in comparisons from one period to another. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Update on Supply of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

COVID-19 restrictions have temporarily impacted the primary iPhone® 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max assembly facility located in Zhengzhou, China. The facility is currently operating at significantly reduced capacity. As we have done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we are prioritizing the health and safety of the workers in our supply chain.
