CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SMART Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:SMT) (TSX:SMA), a leading provider of collaboration solutions, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended December 31, 2013.

"Our third quarter performance was highlighted by materially improved profitability driven by new product success and reduced cash operating expenses," stated Neil Gaydon, President and CEO of SMART. "The progress we have made aligning the company's structure, strategy and culture is beginning to deliver results while the markets for our products improve."

Mr. Gaydon continued, "We are focusing on improved delivery and investment in key growth areas as we carefully manage our expenses while working through the early stages of our turnaround. In Education, sales of our interactive displays remained our mainstay and we made progress signing up content providers for our SMART ampTM software, which will be commercially available in April. In Enterprise, we are pleased with the early traction of our SMART Room SystemTM for Microsoft® Lync®. While the education market remains challenging, we are seeing a slowing decline in our sales to that market. At the same time our Enterprise business is showing early growth driven by our leadership position in interactive display technologies. We are pleased with our overall performance but remain cautious in our outlook."

(1) SMART has moved to an annual software licensing model, resulting in a change to the software revenue deferral period from seven years to one year. As a result, SMART is accelerating the amortization of deferred revenue over 18 months on a straight-line basis. This has a significant impact on SMART's results for six consecutive quarters, from Q3 of fiscal 2014 through to March 31, 2015. 
(2) A full reconciliation of non-GAAP measures is available in Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2013 and is summarized in the tables appended to this press release.

Adjusted Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $143.4 million, an increase of 4% compared to $137.7 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted Revenue for the quarter decreased in North America by 8% and in EMEA by 6%, and revenue in Rest of World grew by 164% year over year, driven largely by sales from our NextWindow components business. In terms of unit sales, 64,279 interactive displays were sold in the quarter, compared to 71,938 units sold in the prior-year period. Average adjusted selling price for the third quarter was $1,780, compared to $1,522 in the prior-year period.

Adjusted Gross Margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $54.4 million, compared to $57.6 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted Gross Margin for the third quarter was 38%, compared to 42% for the same period last year. The decline is largely due to a higher volume of lower-margin sales and inventory writedowns in the NextWindow components business in the third quarter of fiscal 2014.

Cash operating expenses decreased by $10.5 million, or 21%, from $49.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 to $38.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. The cost savings primarily resulted from actions taken in conjunction with the restructuring that occurred in December of 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $19.3 million, representing an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 13%, compared to $5.8 million or 4% in the prior-year period. The improvement was largely due to reduced operating expense and new product introductions. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by Adjusted Revenue.

Adjusted Net Income was $9.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $(2.7) million in the prior-year period. Adjusted diluted EPS was $0.07 based on 126.9 million weighted-average shares outstanding, compared to $(0.02) based on 120.5 million weighted-average shares outstanding during the same period last year. The improvement in Adjusted Net Income during the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was driven by improved Adjusted EBITDA and partially offset by increased interest expense.

As of December 31, 2013 SMART had cash and cash equivalents of $46.0 million and $116.1 million of debt outstanding excluding capital lease obligations, compared to cash equivalents of $141.4 million and $288.2 million of debt outstanding as of December 31, 2012. SMART's capital lease obligation, related to the sale and lease-back of its head office building in May 2013, was $66.9 million at December 31, 2013.

SMART is taking action to exit the optical touch sensor business for desktop displays. The business is not part of SMART's core operations, as the components are used primarily for All-in-One desktop PC's, and profitability is not meeting corporate expectations. The exit aligns with the company's strategy of focusing on large format displays and innovative software for Education and Enterprise customers. SMART's market departure will necessitate the winding down of its NextWindow subsidiaries' operations. NextWindow will work closely with employees, customers and suppliers to manage its commitments during this wind down period. The estimated one-time earnings impact of the wind down is currently $30 to $35 million, $14 million of which was incurred in SMART's third quarter of fiscal 2014, and the balance of which is expected to be recorded in the fourth quarter. The earnings impact is driven primarily by non-cash asset write-downs, and SMART's current expectation is that the wind down will have an immaterial impact on its cash resources. The wind down is expected to be completed by the end of the company's fiscal 2015.

Non-GAAP measures

Previously we provided Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net income as non-GAAP financial measures to aid investors in better understanding the Company's performance. Due to the change in accounting estimate as a result of the reduction in the support period for previously sold products, discussed in the Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates section of this MD&A, management has elected to show Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Margin as additional non-GAAP financial measures. These additional non-GAAP financial measures will adjust revenue and gross margin for the change in deferred revenue during the period. We consider these additional non-GAAP measures to provide additional insights into the operational performance of the Company, and they will help to clarify trends affecting the Company's business.

We define Adjusted Revenue as Revenue adjusted for the change in deferred revenue balances during the period.

We define Adjusted Gross Margin as Gross margin adjusted for the change in deferred revenue balances during the period.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, as well as adjusting for the following items: foreign exchange gains or losses, net change in deferred revenue, stock-based compensation, costs of restructuring, impairment of goodwill, impairment of property and equipment and other income. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income before stock-based compensation, costs of restructuring, foreign exchange gains or losses, net change in deferred revenue and amortization of intangible assets, all net of tax.

Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are non-GAAP measures and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and other non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations and therefore, you should not place undue reliance on them.

We use Adjusted EBITDA as a key measure to assess the core operating performance of our business removing the effects of our leveraged capital structure and the volatility associated with the foreign exchange on our U.S. dollar-denominated debt. We also use Adjusted Net Income to assess the performance of the business removing the after-tax impact of stock-based compensation, costs of restructuring, impairment of goodwill, impairment of property and equipment, foreign exchange gains and losses, revenue deferral and amortization of intangible assets. We use both of these measures to assess business performance when we evaluate our results in comparison to budgets, forecasts, prior-year financial results and other companies in our industry. Many of these companies use similar non-GAAP measures to supplement their GAAP disclosures but such measures may not be directly comparable. In addition to its use by management in the assessment of business performance, Adjusted EBITDA is used by our Board of Directors in assessing management's performance and is a key metric in the determination of incentive plan payments. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may be useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because securities analysts use metrics similar to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income as supplemental measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are not impacted by the change in accounting estimate related to revenue recognition.

(1) Change in deferred revenue is calculated as the difference between deferred revenue and deferred revenue recognized. In accordance with our revenue recognition policy, deferred revenue represents the portion of our sales that we do not recognize in the period. Deferred revenue recognized represents the portion of our revenue deferred in a prior period that we recognized in the current period. We deferred revenue of $4.7 million and $8.6 million in the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and we deferred revenue of $23.8 million and $32.1 million in the nine months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
(2) Includes costs of $15.2 million and $18.4 million recorded in restructuring costs in the Company's consolidated statements of operations and nil and $0.2 million in inventory write-offs recorded in cost of sales for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012.

(1) Change in deferred revenue is calculated as the difference between deferred revenue and deferred revenue recognized. In accordance with our revenue recognition policy, deferred revenue represents the portion of our sales that we do not recognize in the period. Deferred revenue recognized represents the portion of our revenue deferred in a prior period that we recognized in the current period.
(2) Includes costs of $15.2 million and $18.4 million recorded in restructuring costs in the Company's consolidated statements of operations and nil and $0.2 million in inventory write-offs recorded in cost of sales for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012. 
(3) Reflects the tax impact on the adjustments to net income. A key driver of our foreign exchange loss is the conversion of our U.S. dollar-denominated debt into our functional currency of Canadian dollars. Our new credit facility refinancing that closed on July 31, 2013 was incurred at a rate of 1.03. Prior to July 31, 2013, our U.S. dollar-denominated debt was originally incurred at a rate of 1.05. When the unrealized foreign exchange amount on U.S. dollar-denominated debt is in a net gain position as measured against the original exchange rate, the gain is tax-effected at current rates. When the unrealized foreign exchange amount on the U.S. dollar-denominated debt is in a net loss position as measured against the original exchange rate and the loss cannot be carried back to a previous year, a valuation allowance is taken against it and as a result no net tax effect is recorded.
(4) Prior periods' figures have been adjusted to reflect a change in the tax treatment of the change in deferred revenue.
