“The Digi team delivered a remarkable fiscal year for the company,” said Ron Konezny, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We set new records for revenue, ARR, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS throughout the year. We hit the first of our “100” goals with consecutive $100 million revenue quarters. We remain committed to our remaining goals of $100 million in ARR and $100 million in annualized Adjusted EBITDA. I’m so proud of our teammates for their resilience, determination and customer focus in the face of dynamically challenging business conditions.”

Segment Results

IoT Product & Services

The segment’s fourth fiscal quarter 2022 revenues of $81 million increased 15% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. This increase is attributable primarily to revenue growth from our OEM and console server business units. ARR as of the end of the fourth fiscal quarter was over $14 million. Gross profit margin was flat year over year at 53.7% of revenues for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2022, due to product and customer mix, as well as, overcoming supply chain and inflationary challenges.

Full fiscal 2022 revenues of $298 million were a record for this segment, increasing 13% from the prior fiscal year. This increase is attributable primarily to revenue from our console server and cellular products. Gross profit margin decreased 90 basis points to 53.8% of revenues for full fiscal 2021, due to product and customer mix, as well as, supply chain and inflationary challenges.

IoT Solutions

The segment’s fourth fiscal quarter 2022 revenues of $25 million increased 173% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. This increase was primarily driven by Ventus. ARR as of the end of the fourth fiscal quarter was $80 million. Gross profit margin increased 710 basis points to 62.7%, due to growth of subscription revenue in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022. This also demonstrates the value of our high margin recurring revenue business model.

Full fiscal 2022 revenues of $91 million increased 104% from the prior fiscal year. This increase primarily was driven by Ventus. Gross profit margin increased 1,210 basis points to 62.0% as a result of a greater mix of recurring revenue compared to the prior fiscal year.

First Fiscal Quarter and Fiscal 2023 Guidance

With consideration to the supply chain and the other challenging macro conditions, we are providing the following guidance for our first quarter of fiscal 2023:

Revenues are estimated to be $101 million to $105 million, or 20% to 25% growth year over year. We provide earnings guidance on a non-GAAP basis as it is difficult to predict with reasonable certainty items including but not limited to the impact of foreign exchange translation, restructuring, interest and certain tax related events. Given the uncertainty, any of these items could have a significant impact on U.S. GAAP results. Adjusted EBITDA is estimated to be $20.2 million to $21.7 million. Adjusted EPS is anticipated to be $0.41 to $0.44 per diluted share, assuming a weighted average diluted share count of 36.7 million shares.

For our fiscal year of 2023, we believe our projected revenue growth of 10% reflects continued supply chain constraints, with risks on macro economic conditions globally. Our projected revenue growth is not indicative of the demand we are seeing, but rather is continued to be constrained by tight supply chain challenges across the globe. We expect our ARR and Adjusted EBITDA to grow faster than our revenue growth.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on management’s current expectations and assumptions. These statements often can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “assume,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “target,” “may,” “will,” “expect,” “plan,” “potential,” “project,” “should,” or “continue,” or the negative thereof or other variations thereon or similar terminology. Among other items, these statements relate to expectations of the business environment in which Digi operates, projections of future performance, perceived marketplace opportunities and statements regarding our mission and vision. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Among others, these include risks related to the ongoing supply chain and transportation challenges impacting businesses globally, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to mitigate the same, risks related to ongoing inflationary pressures as well as present concerns about a potential recession and the ability of companies like us to operate a global business in such conditions, risks arising from the present war in Ukraine, the highly competitive market in which our company operates, rapid changes in technologies that may displace products sold by us, declining prices of networking products, our reliance on distributors and other third parties to sell our products, the potential for significant purchase orders to be canceled or changed, delays in product development efforts, uncertainty in user acceptance of our products, the ability to integrate our products and services with those of other parties in a commercially accepted manner, potential liabilities that can arise if any of our products have design or manufacturing defects, our ability to integrate and realize the expected benefits of acquisitions such as our recently completed acquisition of Ventus, our ability to defend or settle satisfactorily any litigation, uncertainty in global economic conditions and economic conditions within particular regions of the world which could negatively affect product demand and the financial solvency of customers and suppliers, the impact of natural disasters and other events beyond our control that could negatively impact our supply chain and customers, potential unintended consequences associated with restructuring, reorganizations or other similar business initiatives that may impact our ability to retain important employees or otherwise impact our operations in unintended and adverse ways, the ability to achieve the anticipated benefits and synergies associated with acquisitions or divestitures and changes in our level of revenue or profitability which can fluctuate for many reasons beyond our control. These and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions identified from time to time in our filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including without limitation, our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2021 and other subsequent filings, could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf. Many of such factors are beyond our ability to control or predict. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date for which they are made. We disclaim any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA, each of which is a non-GAAP measure.

We understand that there are material limitations on the use of non-GAAP measures. Non-GAAP measures are not substitutes for GAAP measures, such as net income, for the purpose of analyzing financial performance. The disclosure of these measures does not reflect all charges and gains that were actually recognized by Digi. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for measures prepared in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies or presented by us in prior reports. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. We believe that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe these measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, the cash requirements for the replacement of depreciated and amortized assets, or changes in or cash requirements for our working capital needs.

We believe that providing historical and adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share, respectively, exclusive of such items as reversals of tax reserves, discrete tax benefits, restructuring charges and reversals, intangible amortization, stock-based compensation, other non-operating income/expense, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition-related expenses and interest expense related to acquisitions permits investors to compare results with prior periods that did not include these items. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. In addition, certain of our stockholders have expressed an interest in seeing financial performance measures exclusive of the impact of these matters, which while important, are not central to the core operations of our business. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, defined as EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring charges and reversals, and changes in fair value of contingent consideration is useful to investors to evaluate our core operating results and financial performance because it excludes items that are significant non-cash or non-recurring items reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue is useful because it provides a reliable and consistent approach to measuring our performance from year to year and in assessing our performance against that of other companies. We believe this information helps compare operating results and corporate performance exclusive of the impact of our capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

The tax effect from the above adjustments assumes an estimated effective tax rate of 18.0% for fiscal 2022 and 2021 based on adjusted net income.

(2)

For the three months and years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 discrete tax benefits primarily are a result of excess tax benefits recognized on stock compensation.

(3)

Adjusted net income per diluted share may not add due to the use of rounded numbers.
