CalAmp Reports Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results 
OXNARD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 --  CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ:
CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and
solutions, today reported results for its first quarter ended May 31,
2013. Highlights for the quarter include: 

--  Consolidated first quarter revenue of $53.7 million, up 22.5% compared
    to the first quarter last year with Wireless Datacom revenue up 29%
    over prior year first quarter to $40.9 million.
--  First quarter GAAP net income of $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted
    share, compared to $4.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share for the
    first quarter last year.
--  Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $5.6 million, or $0.16 per
    diluted share, compared to $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share,
    for the same period last year.
--  Net cash provided by operations for the first quarter of $5.8 million,
    and total cash balance at May 31, 2013 of $24.5 million.

Commenting on the first quarter results, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's
President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We're off to a strong
start in fiscal 2014. In the first quarter, our Wireless Datacom
segment revenue increased 29% year-over-year driven by continued
momentum from our Mobile Resource Management (MRM) products and
contributions from our Wireless Matrix acquisition that was completed
at the beginning of the first quarter. The Wireless Datacom gross
margin improved to 39.1% due mainly to higher margin subscription
revenue from our Wireless Matrix acquisition. In addition, rapid
progress on the integration front during the first quarter resulted
in lower than expected operating expenses from the acquired
operations of Wireless Matrix. In our Satellite segment, we saw
improving margins along with some growth resulting in a meaningful
impact to our bottom line results. We believe our unique hardware,
software and service portfolio, supported by expanding channel
partnerships with global reach, has given us the leverage to win an
increasing share of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) market opportunities as
they emerge." 
Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results
 Total revenue for the fiscal 2014
first quarter was $53.7 million compared to $43.9 million for the
first quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of 22.5%.
 Wireless Datacom
revenue increased to $40.9 million from $31.7 million in the same
period last year, and Satellite revenue was $12.9 million compared to
$12.2 million in the first quarter last year. 
Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $18.5
million, an increase of $4.8 million over the same quarter last year
that was primarily driven by higher revenue. The consolidated gross
margin was 34.4% in the fiscal 2014 first quarter, up from 31.2% in
the first quarter last year. The increase in consolidated gross
margin reflects the higher proportion of total revenues represented
by the Wireless Datacom segment in fiscal 2014 versus the prior year
and, within Wireless Datacom, the shift in revenue mix toward higher
margin subscription-based revenues associated with the Wireless
Matrix acquisition. 
GAAP net income for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $1.7 million,
or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net income of $4.2 million,
or $0.14 per diluted share, in the first quarter of last year. The
lower GAAP net income is due in part to the elimination of
substantially all of the Company's deferred income tax asset
valuation allowance at the end of fiscal 2013 that caused GAAP basis
income tax expense to revert to a level that reflects full statutory
tax rates beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Despite
this, on a cash basis, the Company's pretax income is still largely
sheltered from taxation by net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards,
and is expected to remain so for the next few years.  
Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal 2014 first quarter was $5.6
million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income
of $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the same quarter
last year. Non-GAAP earnings exclude the impact of intangibles
amortization, stock-based compensation and acquisition-related
expenses, and include income tax expense that reflects cash taxes
paid for the period after giving effect to the utilization of NOL and
tax credit carryforwards. A reconciliation of the GAAP-basis pretax
income to the non-GAAP net income and earnings per diluted share is
provided in the table at the end of this press release.  
As of May 31, 2013, the Company had total cash of $24.5 million and
an outstanding bank term loan of $4.8 million. Net cash provided by
operating activities during the first quarter was $5.8 million, and
the unused borrowing capacity on the bank revolver as of the end of
the first quarter was $10.2 million. 
Business Outlook
 Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr.
Burdiek said, "Based on our latest projections, we expect fiscal 2014
second quarter consolidated revenues to be in the range of $53 to $57
million. We anticipate that Wireless Datacom second quarter revenues
will be up moderately on a sequential basis and up significantly
year-over-year. We expect Satellite second quarter revenues to be
down slightly on a sequential basis, but up year-over-year. At the
bottom line, we expect second quarter GAAP basis net income in the
range of a $0.04 to $0.08 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income
in the range of $0.14 to $0.18 per diluted share. Looking further
ahead, we continue to expect that the second half of fiscal 2014 will
be stronger than the first half of the year, as several previously
announced opportunities as well as recently launched products begin
ramping up, and we realize the full benefit of synergies from our
Wireless Matrix acquisition."
