Image Sensing Systems Announces Second Quarter Financial Results
SAINT PAUL, Minn., Aug. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISNS), announced today the results for its first six months of its fiscal year and second quarter ended June 30, 2012. The results include a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $3.2 million (pre-tax) triggered by a decline in our market capitalization.
Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $11.0 million compared to $14.2 million for the same period of 2011, while revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $5.7 million compared to $8.1 million for the same period a year ago. Revenue from royalties was $5.4 million in the first six months of 2012 compared to $5.7 million in 2011 and $3.0 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $3.0 million in the same period of 2011. Product sales were $5.6 million for the first six months of 2012 compared to $8.5 million in 2011 and were $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $5.1 million in the same period in 2011. World-wide CitySync product sales were $2.6 million in the first six months of 2012 and $1.0 million in the second quarter and RTMS® product sales and royalties were $1.0 million and $363,000, respectively, in the first six months of 2012 and $352,000 and $238,000, respectively in the second quarter. Econolite distribution of RTMS in North America began in the first quarter of 2012.
Net loss for the first six months of 2012 was $(4.3) million or $(0.89) per share compared to a net loss of $(598,000) or $(0.12) per share for the same period in 2011. Net loss for our 2012 second quarter was $(3.7) million or $(0.75) per share compared to net income of $210,000 or $0.04 per diluted share for the same period in 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the goodwill impairment charge, restructuring and intangible asset amortization, all net of tax, net loss for the first six months of 2012 was $(96,000) or $(0.02) per share and net income for the second quarter was $231,000 or $0.05 per share.
The impairment charge consisted of write-downs to the remaining goodwill recorded for our RTMS and CitySync acquisitions. There was no impact to our intangible asset balances. The charge is non-cash and does not affect our working capital position. Our effective income tax rate for 2012 is unusual due to the impacts of a non-deductible portion of the goodwill impairment charge and our tax credit situation in multiple jurisdictions.
Ken Aubrey, CEO, said, "Although our results for the first half of the year reflect the continued softness across much of our business, we are particularly encouraged by the unexpected enactment of the so called 'MAP-21' United States transportation legislation in July. MAP-21 ends a long period of Federal funding uncertainty two years with nine sporadic and temporary extensions of the previous transportation bill - that we believe led to a wide deferral of many much-needed ITS projects. Federal funding will now be assured at over $100 billion for the next 27 months. This is very good news for all ITS industry participants and we believe that we will be a beneficiary. We are optimistic that the funding assurances will allow for the release of much of that pent-up demand, with the expectation that there may be a ramp-up period as authorities take full account of the changed funding circumstances.
"This will not be a panacea for the doldrums in Europe or the spreading slow-down in Asia, but we view it as a positive sign for the prospects of our royalty business which is centered in North America and which has historically been the strongest contributor to our profitability.
"At the end of the second quarter we took additional steps to reduce operating expenses and continued our business model adjustments in support of our stated goal to return to traditional profit levels. A substantial portion of these adjustments were made in our Asian region where we continue to shift the focus to the People's Republic of China and away from non-PRC activities. To a lesser extent we also made cost reductions in Europe to match lower revenue levels experienced in conjunction with perceived performance risks going forward. These measured actions resulted in further restructuring charges in addition to those disclosed in earlier guidance.
"We have maintained our balance sheet improvement initiatives and ended the second quarter with cash and investments of $9.7 million, up from $8.5 million at March 31 and $7.3 million at the start of the year.
"Lastly, we remain encouraged by the growing target customer interest in our recently released and industry changing Duo hybrid detection product. In conjunction with our economy priced RVP2 dual approach detector and our revamped Encore mainline integrated products, we believe that we are particularly well positioned to benefit from the demand spurt that we anticipate the new MAP-21 legislation funding will engender," continued Mr. Aubrey.
We provide certain non-GAAP financial information as supplemental information to GAAP amounts. This non-GAAP information excludes the impact, net of tax, of amortizing the intangible assets from the 2007 EIS asset acquisition and the 2010 CitySync acquisition and may exclude other non-recurring items. Management believes that this presentation facilitates the comparison of our current operating results to historical operating results. Management uses this non-GAAP information to evaluate short-term and long-term operating trends in our core operations. Non-GAAP information is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for or an alternative to GAAP financial measures and may not be computed the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies.
