Xata Reports Fiscal 2012 Third Quarter Results
MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Xata Corporation (NASDAQ:XATA) reported results for its fiscal 2012 third quarter, ended June 30, 2012.
Total revenue was $15.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $17.0 million for the same period of fiscal 2011. Net loss to common shareholders for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $6.3 million, compared to $0.5 million for the same period in fiscal 2011. The increased loss was due primarily to impairment and realignment charges of $5.7 million recorded to allow the Company to balance its investment in its legacy systems and mobile-based platforms to align with its strategic goals.
Realignment charges included $0.9 million in personnel expenses from a workforce reduction, $0.4 million for accelerated depreciation of fixed assets, $0.6 million to write off excess and obsolete inventory and $0.3 million in estimated costs to terminate inventory purchase commitments. The Company also recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $3.5 million associated with intangible assets originally recorded in conjunction with the 2008 acquisition of Geologic Solutions, Inc.
The Company reported a loss of $0.59 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to a loss of $0.04 per diluted share for the same period of fiscal 2011. A non-cash intangible asset impairment charge of $0.33 per share and realignment charges of $0.21 per share were included in the 2012 third quarter diluted loss per share. Important developments for the quarter included:
- Software revenue increased $0.5 million to $11.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The 4 percent growth in software revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was fueled by a 31 percent and 8 percent growth in Xata Turnpike and XataNet software revenue, respectively.
- Higher margin software revenues increased as the market continues to evolve from hardware systems-based to lower-cost mobile solutions. As a result, fiscal 2012 third quarter software revenue accounted for approximately 76 percent of total revenue, compared to 67 percent for the same period of fiscal 2011.
- The Company acquired 77 new customers in the third quarter of fiscal 2012, with the majority selecting the Xata Turnpike solution.
“A major event in the third quarter involved Congress passing the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21(st) Century Act (MAP-21) bill that requires the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to develop a regulation to require certain motor carriers to use electronic logging devices to track Hours of Service for their Record of Duty Status (RODS). This long-awaited legislation means that anyone keeping paper log books for RODS today will be required to use a FMCSA certified electronic logging device. It is estimated that this will provide a market opportunity of nearly three million trucks. The FMCSA will be required to create a regulation within one year,” said Jay Coughlan, Chairman and President of Xata. “With our current no upfront hardware cost Xata Turnpike solution, Xata is well-positioned to handle the increased demand once the regulation goes into effect.”
“Xata Turnpike recurring software continued its strong growth in the quarter, reflecting the market shift to mobility-based solutions using smart phones and tablets,” said Mike Weber, Xata’s Vice President, Finance.
Fiscal 2012 third quarter total gross margin of 49 percent improved 2 percentage points compared the same period in fiscal 2011. Margin improvement driven by the shift in revenue mix to higher margin software revenue was partially offset by the recording of $0.4 million for accelerated depreciation of fixed assets, $0.6 million to write off excess and obsolete inventory and $0.3 million in estimated costs to terminate inventory purchase commitments.
For the third quarter of fiscal 2012, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $6.6 million from $5.8 million for the third quarter 2011. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2012 included $0.8 million of employee separation costs from a workforce reduction.
Research and development costs increased $1.3 million to $4.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, compared to $2.7 million for the same period of fiscal 2011. The increase in research and development costs reflects the commitment to enhance functionality to meet our customers’ compliance and fleet optimization needs. We believe that leveraging new mobile technology is critical to our future success.
For the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company reported adjusted non-GAAP earnings of $1.5 million or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to adjusted non-GAAP earnings of $1.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share for the same period of fiscal 2011, an increase of 13 percent in adjusted non-GAAP earnings over the same period in the prior year.
As of June 30, 2012, Xata held $7.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and had $8.5 million of working capital.
For the nine months ended June 30, 2012, total revenue remained relatively consistent with the same period of the prior year. However, software revenue over the same period increased by 3 percent as a result of strong growth in Xata Turnpike and XataNet of 40 percent and 7 percent, respectively. In addition, software revenue as a percentage of total revenue grew 2 percentage points as the Company’s customers continue to shift to mobile-based platforms.
For the nine months ended June 30, 2012, the Company reported adjusted non-GAAP earnings of $2.2 million or $0.08 per diluted share as compared to $4.0 million or $0.15 per diluted share for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted non-GAAP earnings is a reflection of the Company’s continued investments to enhance current solutions and develop new solutions that will meet the market’s current and anticipated fleet management and regulatory needs.

Non-GAAP vs. GAAP Financial Measures
To assist investors in understanding the Company’s financial performance, the Company supplements the financial results that are generated in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors for evaluating the Company’s historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance relative to competitors. Management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its ongoing business operations and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future period performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s ongoing operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business.
The specific non-GAAP financial measures, along with a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measures and further explanation of their usefulness to investors can be found at the end of this release.

Footnotes to GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation
The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. The methods of calculation and explanations of the adjustments to the most comparable GAAP measures are set forth below:
Non-GAAP (Loss) Earnings
This measure provides a supplemental view of earnings trends. Non-GAAP (loss) earnings excludes depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, net interest expense, preferred stock dividends and deemed dividends, income taxes, acquisition and financing related costs and litigation settlement costs from GAAP net loss to common shareholders. We believe our investors benefit from understanding these exclusions when comparing current to historical results from operations.
Adjusted Non-GAAP Earnings
Adjusted non-GAAP earnings is based on non-GAAP (loss) earnings adjusted for additional realignment charges not included in the Company’s historical definition of non-GAAP (loss) earnings. We believe our investors benefit from understanding the impact of these charges on our historically presented non-GAAP (loss) earnings performance to allow for a more consistent view of results of ongoing operations.
Non-GAAP Diluted (Loss) Earnings per Share
We believe investors benefit by understanding the Company’s non-GAAP operating performance as reflected in a per share calculation as a way of measuring non-GAAP operating performance by ownership in the Company. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is based on non-GAAP earnings, as defined above, divided by the sum of the weighted average common and dilutive common shares equivalents, such as options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, warrants or convertible preferred stock, assuming they were exercised or converted into common stock that then shared in the non-GAAP earnings of the Company, as defined by GAAP. Non-GAAP diluted loss per share is based on non-GAAP loss, as defined above, divided by only the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period, as defined by GAAP. The non-GAAP diluted net loss per common share is equal to basic net loss per common share for all periods presented because the effect of including such securities or obligations would have been antidilutive. We believe that these exclusions provide investors an understanding these exclusions when comparing current to historical diluted earnings per share.
Adjusted Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share
Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is based on adjusted non-GAAP earnings, as defined above, divided by the sum of the weighted average common and dilutive common shares equivalents, such as options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, warrants or convertible preferred stock, assuming they were exercised or converted into common stock that then shared in the non-GAAP earnings of the Company, as defined by GAAP. We believe that the exclusion of the additional realignment charges provide investors a more consistent view diluted earnings per share.
Working capital represents current assets, less current liabilities, excluding the current portion of deferred revenue, net of deferred costs. We believe working capital provides investors with an additional view of the Company’s liquidity and ability to repay current obligations.
