Magal Security Systems Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

YAHUD, Israel, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Magal S3 Ltd. (NASDAQ GMS: MAGS) today announced its financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014. Management will hold an investors' conference call later today, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time and 5 p.m. Israel time, to discuss the results.

SECOND QUARTER 2014 RESULTS SUMMARY

Revenues for the second quarter of 2014 increased 33% to $16.2 million from $12.2 million for the second quarter of 2013 and increased 30% from $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2014. 

Gross profit in the quarter was $7.1 million, or 43.6% of revenues, an increase of 45% compared to gross profit of $4.9 million, or 39.8% of revenues in the second quarter of 2013. The variance in the gross margin between the quarters reflects changes between products and projects in the revenue mix.

Operating loss in the quarter was $0.6 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. Operating expenses increased in the quarter, primarily due to an increase in sales and marketing and R&D expenses. Marketing and sales expenses increased to $4.5 million in the quarter from $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2013 due to the launch of a number of new products during the quarter and the purchase of a fiber-optic security business in the United States early in the second quarter.

Financial expenses in the quarter amounted to $641 thousand compared to financial income of $411 thousand in the second quarter of 2013.

Net loss in the quarter was $1.1 million or $0.07 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.7 million, or $0.04 per share, in the second quarter of 2013.

Cash and short term deposits net of bank debt, as of June 30, 2014, were $27.4 million, or $1.69 per share, compared with cash and short term deposits net of current bank debt of $36.3 million, or $2.25 per share, on December 31, 2013. The decrease in the cash level was primarily due to the net investment and purchase of a fiber-optic security business in the United States, as well as cash used in continuing operations.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Commenting on the results, Mr. Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal, said, "Our second quarter results demonstrate a solid improvement in revenue sequentially and over the comparable period last year. We also increased our operating expenses, primarily in marketing and sales as well as in R&D. This increase was driven in part by our acquisition of fiber optic sensor technology, our continued investment in our CyberSeal subsidiary, as well as the launch of some new products. We currently see many opportunities in our end markets and we intend to capitalize on them. We launched several important homeland security perimeter products during the quarter- FlexZone, RoboGuard and a high-end sensor, Fensor. CyberSeal is also currently in the process of launching new logical security products, which we believe will lead to long-term growth."

Continued Mr. Livneh, "I continue to expect that the second half of 2014 will show significant growth over the first half, leading to a profitable second half."

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
