“We are pleased that our profitability remained strong as a result of improved operating efficiencies and tighter cost controls,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO. “Our revenues grew 11% year-over-year during the third quarter, our twenty-second consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth, although slower than anticipated, as a result of softer government spending for our Point-to-Point products.”

Bhatnagar continued, “Cambium Networks continues to broaden our technology portfolio and remains well positioned for growth as a leader in fixed wireless broadband infrastructure and cloud powered enterprise Wi-Fi solutions. We will continue to capitalize on the strength of our technologies, while focusing on improving profitability through cost reduction initiatives and disciplined discretionary spending.”

Revenues of $65.7 million for the third quarter 2019 increased $6.7 million year-over-year, as a result of growth in both Point-to-Multi-Point and Wi-Fi businesses. Revenues for the third quarter 2019 decreased $3.4 million compared to $69.2 million for the second quarter 2019, driven by slower government spending partially offset by growth in enterprise Wi-Fi solutions. GAAP gross margin for the third quarter 2019 was 48.4%, compared to 46.6% for the third quarter 2018, and 49.6% for the second quarter 2019. GAAP operating income for the third quarter 2019 was $4.1 million, compared to operating loss of $1.1 million during the third quarter 2018, and GAAP operating loss for the second quarter 2019 of $9.4 million, which included a $16.1 million charge for share-based compensation expense. GAAP net income for the third quarter 2019 was $2.0 million, or net income of $0.08 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.6 million, or a net loss of $0.19 per diluted share for the third quarter 2018, and a net loss of $20.4 million, or a net loss of $1.47 per diluted share for the second quarter 2019.

Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter 2019 was 48.7%, compared to 46.8% for the third quarter 2018, and 50.1% for the second quarter 2019. Non-GAAP operating income for the third quarter 2019 was $5.8 million, compared to $0.2 million for the third quarter 2018, and $7.1 million for the second quarter 2019. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter 2019 was $3.7 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or a net loss of $0.11 per diluted share for the third quarter 2018, and non-GAAP net income of $3.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2019. 

For the third quarter 2019, adjusted EBITDA was $6.8 million or 10.3% of revenues, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1.5 million or 2.5% of revenues for the third quarter 2018, and $8.1 million, or 11.8% of revenues for the second quarter 2019.

Cash used in operating activities was $11.8 million for the third quarter 2019, due primarily to the timing of payments related to the Initial Public Offering (IPO), and compared to cash provided by operating activities of $3.2 million for the third quarter 2018, and $6.0 million for the second quarter 2019. Cash totaled $19.0 million as of September 30, 2019, $14.8 million higher than the third quarter 2018, and a decrease of $52.3 million from the second quarter 2019. The decrease in cash balance for the third quarter 2019 from the second quarter 2019 was primarily the result of a $33.2 million paydown of long-term and revolving debt, payments of approximately $6.0 million for offering expenses and D&O insurance, a $5.6 million past management fee, a $5.0 million increase in inventories, and a $2.0 million payment to acquire the Xirrus Wi-Fi business.

Use of non-GAAP (Adjusted) Financial Measures
In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), we provide additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP (non-GAAP), including Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP pre-tax income, non-GAAP provision for income taxes, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP fully weighted basic and diluted shares. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes, to measure executive compensation and to evaluate our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures help us to identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that we exclude in the calculations of the non-GAAP financial measures.

Accordingly, we believe that these financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in the business and provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects.  Excluding these non-GAAP measures eliminate the variability caused by share-based compensation as a result of the variety of equity awards used by other companies and the varying methodologies and assumptions used, the variability caused by purchase accounting and provide a more relevant measure of operating performance. Although the calculation of non-GAAP financial measures may vary from company to company, our detailed presentation may facilitate analysis and comparison of our operating results by management and investors with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results in their public disclosures. These non-GAAP financial measures are discussed below.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income as reported in our consolidated statements of income excluding the impact of (i) interest expense (income), net; (ii) income tax provision (benefit); (iii) depreciation and amortization expense; (iv) Sponsor fees associated with advisory services, and (v) share-based compensation expense. EBITDA is widely used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate the profitability of companies. EBITDA eliminates potential differences in performance caused by variations in capital structures (affecting net finance costs), tax positions (such as the availability of net operating losses against which to relieve taxable profits), the cost and age of tangible assets (affecting relative depreciation expense) and the extent to which intangible assets are identifiable (affecting relative amortization expense). We adjust EBITDA to also exclude Sponsor fees, in order to eliminate the impact on reported performance caused by these fees, which are related to our past ownership structure. We adjust EBITDA for share-based compensation expense which is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond Cambium Networks control. As a result, management excludes this item from Cambium Networks internal operating forecasts and models.

Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP net income are used as a supplement to our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP.  We believe these non-GAAP measures are the most meaningful for period to period comparisons because they exclude the impact of share-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles, and amortization of capitalized software costs as we do not consider these costs and expenses to be indicative of our ongoing operations.

  • Share-based compensation expense and associated employment taxes paid. Management may issue different types of awards, including share options, restricted share awards and restricted share units, as well as awards with performance or other market characteristics, and excludes the associated expense in this non-GAAP measure. Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond Cambium Networks' control while the associated employment taxes are cash-based expenses that vary in amount from period-to-period and are dependent on market forces as well as jurisdictional tax regulations that are often beyond Cambium Networks' control.  In addition, in the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, Cambium Networks incurred a one-time share-based compensation expense of $16.1 million in connection with (i) the recognition of deferred share-based compensation expense and (ii) the issuance of 2,172,000 share options, each upon the completion of our initial public offering as well as employment taxes paid by Cambium Networks in conjunction with the settlement of deferred share-based compensation into ordinary shares.
  • Amortization of acquired intangibles includes customer relationships, unpatented technology, patents, software, and trademarks.
  • Amortization of capitalized software costs include capitalized research and development activities amortized over their useful life and included in cost of revenues. 
  • Debt amortization costs associated with the extinguishment of long-term debt. Cambium Networks excludes these expenses from non-GAAP income since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.
  • Acquisition and integration costs consist of legal and professional fees relations to the acquisition of Xirrus. Cambium Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.
  • One-time charges associated with the completion of an acquisition including items such as contract termination costs, severance and other acquisition-related restructuring costs; costs incurred in connection with integration activities; and legal and accounting costs. Cambium Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.
  • Restructuring expenses primarily consist of severance costs for employees which are not related to future operating expenses. Cambium Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations. Excluding these charges permits more accurate comparisons of Cambium Networks' ongoing business results.

Our non-GAAP tax adjustments include the tax impacts from share-based compensation expense including excess or decremental tax benefits available to the company that are recorded when incurred, one-time and ongoing impacts from the company's valuation allowance recognized in the quarter ended June 30, 2019, and one-time tax impacts from share-based compensation expense incurred upon the completion of our initial public offering as noted above. Cambium Networks excludes these amounts to more closely approximate the company’s ongoing effective tax rate (ETR) after adjusting for one-time or unique reoccurring items. The associated non-GAAP effective tax rate is also applied to the gross amount of non-GAAP adjustments for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income in total and on a per-share basis. This approach is designed to enhance the ability of investors to understand the company's tax expense on its current operations, provide improved modeling accuracy, and substantially reduce fluctuations caused by GAAP adjustments which may not reflect actual cash tax expense. 

Non-GAAP fully weighted basic and diluted shares are shown as outstanding during the entire period presented and include dilutive shares, if their effect to earnings per share is dilutive.  We also use non-GAAP fully weighted basic and diluted shares to provide more comparable per-share results across periods.

These non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of our GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations in the use of non-GAAP measures, because they do not include all the expenses that must be included under GAAP and because they involve the exercise of judgment concerning exclusions of items from the comparable non-GAAP financial measure. In addition, other companies may use other measures to evaluate their performance, or may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. We present a “Reconciliation of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in the tables below.
