SMART Reports Annual and Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results

  • Annual Net Income - $27.3 million Adjusted (up 128%); $20.5 million GAAP
  • Annual Revenue - $558.4 million Adjusted (down 5%); $589.2 million GAAP
  • Annual Adjusted EBITDA of $74.5 million, up 53%

CALGARY, Alberta, May 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SMART Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:SMT) (TSX:SMA), a leading provider of collaboration solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year and fourth quarter ended March 31, 2014.

"SMART's improved annual and fourth quarter results were driven by reduced costs and the introduction of new products, which accounted for over $200 million of sales in the year," said Neil Gaydon, President and CEO of SMART. "Looking ahead to our 2015 fiscal year, we still have significant work to do in executing our turnaround plan."

Mr. Gaydon continued, "SMART is facing headwinds in the early stages of a transition from an interactive whiteboard Education company in decline, to a growing business with a broad product line and strong presence in both the Education and Enterprise markets. As a result, we expect our financial performance in fiscal 2015 to be below our fiscal 2014 performance, with Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal year 2015 between $40 million and $50 million, and Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 between $7 million and $10 million. We will provide more details on today's conference call. SMART is continuing to invest in new technologies and products that, over the next two or three years, will reinvent our company as a leading software and interactive flat panel provider. We remain confident in the achievement of our long-term strategic goals with continued focus on operational effectiveness, execution and innovation."

(1)  In September of 2013, SMART 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 twelve months ended March 31, 2014 and is summarized in the tables appended to this press release.

Adjusted Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $108.7 million, an increase of 8% compared to $100.8 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted Revenue for the quarter decreased in North America by 15%, and increased in EMEA by 48% and in Rest of World by 48% year over year. Growth in EMEA was driven largely by increased sales in our focus markets of Great Britain, Germany and the Nordic countries. Growth in Rest of World was driven largely by revenue from NextWindow. In terms of unit sales, 53,889 interactive displays were sold in the quarter, compared to 60,444 units sold in the prior-year period. Average adjusted selling price for the fourth quarter was $1,659, compared to $1,303 in the prior-year period. Adjusted Revenue for the fiscal year decreased in North America by 17% and in EMEA by 5%, and adjusted revenue increased in Rest of World by 80% year over year. The number of interactive displays sold in fiscal year 2014 was 290,047, compared to 338,934 units sold in the prior-year period. Average adjusted selling price for the year was $1,505, compared to $1,372 in the prior year.

Adjusted Gross Profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $38.0 million, compared to $41.1 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted Gross Margin for the fourth quarter was 35%, compared to 41% for the same period last year. The decline is largely due to a higher volume of lower-margin sales and very low margins in the NextWindow components business which the company is winding down. Adjusted Gross Profit for fiscal 2014 was $223.6 million, compared to $261.1 million in fiscal 2013. Adjusted Gross Margin for the fiscal year was 40%, compared to 44% for the prior fiscal year.

Cash operating expenses decreased by $13.1 million, or 26%, from $50.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 to $37.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. In fiscal 2014, cash operating expenses were $158.1 million, compared to $212.7 million in fiscal 2013, a 26% decrease. The cost savings primarily resulted from actions taken in conjunction with the restructuring that occurred in December of 2012. Cash operating expenses are comprised of selling, marketing and administrative and research and development expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $3.2 million, representing an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 3%, compared to $(8.8) million the prior-year period. The improvement was largely due to reduced operating expense and new product introductions. Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2014 was $74.5 million, representing an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 13%, compared to $48.8 million or 8% in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by Adjusted Revenue.

Adjusted Net Loss was $5.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to an Adjusted Net Loss of $12.9 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted diluted EPS was $(0.05) based on 127.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding, compared to $(0.10) 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 March 31, 2014 was driven by improved Adjusted EBITDA and partially offset by increased interest expense. Adjusted Net Income for fiscal 2014 was $27.3 million or $0.22 per diluted share compared to $12.0 million or $0.10 per diluted share for fiscal 2013.

As of March 31, 2014, SMART had cash and cash equivalents of $58.1 million and $114.3 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 March 31, 2013. SMART's capital lease obligation, related to the sale and lease-back of its head office building in May 2013, was $64.1 million at March 31, 2014.

Certain statements made in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. federal and applicable Canadian securities laws. Statements that include the words "expanding," "expect," "increasing," "intend," "plan," "believe," "project," "estimate," "anticipate," "may," "will," "continue," "further," "seek," "ongoing," "commit" and similar words or statements of a future or forward-looking nature identify forward-looking statements. In particular and without limitation, this press release contains forward-looking statements pertaining to our turnaround plan, being in the early stages of a transition from an interactive whiteboard Education company in decline to a growing business with a broad product line and strong presence in both the Education and Enterprise market spaces, our investment in new technologies and products, the ability of these new technologies and products to reinvent SMART as a leading software and interactive flat panel provider, our ability to achieve our strategic goals, and our ability to continue to focus on operational effectiveness, execution and innovation.

All forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors and assumptions that could cause our actual results and other circumstances and events to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors and assumptions include, but are not limited to, those described under "Risk Factors" in our Annual Information Form (AIF) and in our Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, both of which form part of our Annual Report on Form 40-F for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 and can be located on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com or on the EDGAR section of the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

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, other income and gains or losses related to the sale of long-lived assets. 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, amortization of intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, impairment of property and equipment and gains or losses related to the sale of long-lived 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, amortization of intangible assets and gains or losses related to the sale of long-lived 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.
(2)  Fiscal 2013 includes restructuring costs of $20.8 million disclosed in the Company's consolidated statements of operations and $0.4 million in inventory write-offs recorded in cost of sales.
(3)  In fiscal 2014, we updated our definition of Adjusted Net Income to adjust for gains or losses on sale of long-lived assets. Prior periods' figures have been adjusted to reflect the change.
(4)  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.
(5)  Prior periods' figures have been adjusted to reflect a change in the tax treatment of the change in deferred revenue.
(6) Adjusted net Income (Loss) is a non-GAAP measure and is not a substitute for the GAAP equivalent.
