BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiant Logistics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: RLGT), a domestic and international logistics services company, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110606/CL14193LOGO )

First Fiscal Quarter Ended September 30 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues increased 10.2% to $79.1 million in the first fiscal quarter of 2013 from $71.8 million for the comparable prior year period.
  • Net income attributable to shareholders was $403,000 for the first fiscal quarter of 2013 and included a loss of $50,000 on change in contingent consideration and $251,000 in non-recurring legal costs.  Net income for the comparable prior year period was $655,000 and included $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs. 
  • Basic and diluted earnings per share was $0.01 per basic and fully diluted share for the first fiscal quarter of 2013, compared to $0.02 per basic and fully diluted share for the comparable prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 52.9% to $2,506,000 for the first fiscal quarter of 2013 and included $251,000 in non-recurring legal costs, compared to adjusted EBITDA in the prior year comparable period of $1,639,000 which included $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs.
  • As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted EBITDA increased from 7.8% to 11.2% compared with the first fiscal quarter of 2012.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, Radiant reported net income attributable to shareholders of $403,000 on $79.1 million of revenues, or $0.01 per basic and fully diluted share, which included a loss of $50,000 on change in contingent consideration and $251,000 in non-recurring legal costs.  For the three months ended September 30, 2011, Radiant reported net income attributable to shareholders of $655,000 on $71.8 million of revenues, or $0.02 per basic and fully diluted share, which included $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs. 

The Company also reported adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of $2,506,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2012, which included $251,000 in non-recurring legal costs, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1,639,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, which included $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs, for an increase of $867,000.  Excluding these non-recurring costs, the Company would have reported $2,757,000 in adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, for an increase of $835,000, or an increase of 43.4% over the comparable prior year period. A reconciliation of the Company's adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure appears at the end of this release.

Network Expansion - Organic and Acquisitive Growth

The Company announced further organic expansion of its network in the quarter with new operations in Oakland, California. The Oakland location, operating under the Airgroup brand, is led by Jill Carter and Donna Johnson and services a diversified base of domestic and international customers.

On November 1, 2012, the Company completed the acquisition of the assets of its operating partner, Marvir Logistics, a privately held company based in Los Angeles, California that had operated under the Company's Airgroup brand since 2006.  The Company structured the transaction similar to its previous transactions with a portion of the expected purchase price payable in subsequent periods based on the future performance of the acquired assets and operations.  The transaction is expected to provide meaningful cost synergies as it is combined with existing Company owned operations in Los Angeles.

CEO Comments

"We continue to make steady progress in our organic growth and acquisition strategies and in the integration of our recent acquisitions, delivering another quarter of solid double-digit growth in adjusted EBITDA," said Bohn Crain, Chairman and CEO. "For our first fiscal quarter of 2013, we posted adjusted EBITDA of $2,506,000 an increase of $867,000 or 52.9% over the comparable prior year period.  Our ability to leverage our personnel and general administrative costs as a function of our net revenues is what will really allow us to drive profitable growth. As a percentage of net revenues, our adjusted EBITDA increased from 7.8% to 11.2% compared to the same period last year. We are excited to see these metrics begin to come back into line with the DBA integration largely behind us."

"We are also very excited about the Marvir transaction which combines well with our existing Company-owned operation in Los Angeles and builds critical density in this strategic gateway location. The Marvir transaction and our long-standing partnership with Marvir founders Tom Bowling and Walter Benvenuto are significant in the evolution of Radiant Logistics. We launched Radiant in January of 2006 with the goal of bringing value to logistics entrepreneurs who would benefit from our unique value proposition with the immediate opportunity to become shareholders and share in the value that they were helping create in conjunction with the longer-term opportunity to take advantage of a built-in exit strategy available to all entrepreneurs participating in our network. Marvir was the first independent agent location to join the Radiant family after our initial platform acquisition of Airgroup back in 2006 and has consistently been one of the larger operating partners in our network.  We are very proud to be able to support them in their transition and help them reach their individual goals. We believe the Marvir transaction showcases our broader opportunity to support other independent agent stations, both internal and external to our existing network.  The Company's flexible offering of an outright purchase, or the opportunity to participate in the Radiant Network as an independent owner with the option to sell at a later date – like Tom and Walter have done make Radiant an attractive partner." 

Mr. Crain continued, "Historically, potential network candidates have been receptive to Radiant's acquisition program because they are often too small to be identified as acquisition targets by larger public companies or to independently attempt their own public offerings. Radiant's value proposition has also been able to deliver consistent organic growth with many entrepreneurs choosing to join as an independent agent with the thought of selling at a later date.  This allows them the unique opportunity to align themselves with a publicly-traded network enterprise, with access to Radiant's buying power, technology platform and international partner network to better support their customers – all while preserving their option for liquidity downstream. This remains a very exciting time in the evolution of Radiant, as our value proposition continues to gain traction within the forwarding community and we remain confident that our growth strategy will continue to bring value to our operating partners, shareholders and the end customers that we serve."

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We believe that supplemental disclosure of our adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for stock-based compensation, unusual items and other non-cash costs is a useful measure for investors because it eliminates the effect of certain non-cash costs and provides an important metric for our business.  A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA amounts to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure is as follows:

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income and Net Cash Provided By Operating Activities
(unaudited)

As used in this report, adjusted EBITDA means earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for stock-based compensation and other non-cash charges.  We believe that adjusted EBITDA, as presented, represents a useful method of assessing the performance of our operating activities, as it reflects our earnings trends without the impact of certain non-cash charges.  Adjusted EBITDA is also used by our creditors in assessing debt covenant compliance.  We understand that although securities analysts frequently use EBITDA in their evaluation of companies, it is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.  EBITDA is not intended as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance, nor as an alternative to any other measure of performance in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The following is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to both net income and cash flow provided by operating activities:

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things.
