Management Commentary:

“Our significantly improved net income and adjusted EBITDA results in the first quarter demonstrate a critical financial inflection point for Iteris, despite the challenging economic environment associated with COVID-19,” said Joe Bergera, president and CEO of Iteris. “During the last several quarters, we have executed a series of successful strategic initiatives that have fundamentally enhanced the company’s cost structure and positioned Iteris for long-term profitable growth.

“While COVID-19 has created considerable macroeconomic uncertainty, we have experienced continued strong demand within our transportation segments with record net bookings of $33.8 million. We look forward to introducing several exciting new product innovations this fiscal year that will enhance our market leadership and further position Iteris to capitalize on favorable long-term, secular growth trends in the smart mobility infrastructure management market.”

GAAP Fiscal First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 11% to $28.0 million, compared with $25.2 million in the same quarter a year ago. This revenue increase was driven primarily by a 20% increase in Transportation Systems and a 3% increase in Roadway Sensors.

Operating expenses in the first quarter increased approximately $0.4 million to $10.5 million and included approximately $0.6 million of restructuring charges, compared with approximately $10.1 million in the same quarter a year ago.

Operating income from continuing operations in the first quarter was approximately $0.4 million, compared with an operating loss of approximately $0.5 million in the same quarter a year ago. Net income from continuing operations in the first quarter was approximately $0.4 million, or $0.01 diluted per share, compared with a loss of approximately $0.5 million, or ($0.02) per share, in the same quarter a year ago.

Non-GAAP Fiscal First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the company has included the following non-GAAP financial measure: Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring charges (“Adjusted EBITDA”). A discussion of the company’s use of this non-GAAP financial measure is set forth below in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, the company has included the following non-GAAP financial measure in this release: Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring charges (“Adjusted EBITDA”).

When viewed with our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP and accompanying reconciliations, we believe Adjusted EBITDA provides additional useful information to clarify and enhance the understanding of the factors and trends affecting our past performance and future prospects. We define this measure, explain how it is calculated and provide reconciliations of this measure to the most comparable GAAP measure in the table below. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. This is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as measures of our liquidity. The presentation of this measure should not be interpreted to mean that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

We use the Adjusted EBITDA non-GAAP operating performance measure internally as a complementary financial measure to evaluate the performance and trends of our businesses. We present Adjusted EBITDA and the related financial ratios, as applicable, because we believe that measures such as these provide useful information with respect to our ability to meet our operating commitments.

Adjusted EBITDA and the related financial ratios have limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations include:

  • They do not reflect our cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • They do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • They are not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statements of cash flows;
  • They do not reflect the impact on earnings of charges resulting from matters unrelated to our ongoing operations; and
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently from us, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA and the related financial ratios should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or as a measure of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations. You should compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental information. See our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in this Press Release. However, in spite of the above limitations, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our results of operations because these measures:

  • Are widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such terms, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired, among other factors;
  • Help investors to evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our capital structure from our operating performance; and
  • Are used by our management team for various other purposes in presentations to our Board of Directors as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.

The following financial items have been added back to or subtracted from our net income when calculating Adjusted EBITDA:

  • Interest expense may be useful to investors for determining current cash flow;
  • Income tax expense may be useful to investors because it represents the taxes which may be payable for the period and the change in deferred taxes during the period, and may reduce cash flow available for use in our business;
  • Depreciation may be useful to investors because it generally represents the wear and tear on our property and equipment used in our operations;
  • Amortization expense may be useful to investors because it represents the estimated attrition of our acquired customer base and the diminishing value of product rights;
  • Stock-based compensation may be useful to our investors for determining current cash flow;
  • Restructuring charges may be useful to our investors in evaluating our core operating performance; and
  • Acquisition costs may be useful to our investors in evaluating our core operating performance.

Reconciliations of net income (loss) from continuing operations to Adjusted EBITDA and the presentation of Adjusted EBIDTA as a percentage of net revenues were as follows:
