Magal Security Systems Reports: Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

YAHUD, Israel, November 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Magal S3 Ltd. (NASDAQ GMS: MAGS) today announced its financial results for the three and nine month period ended September 30, 2012. Management will hold an investors' conference call later today, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time and 4:00 p.m. Israel time, to discuss the results.

THIRD QUARTER 2012 RESULTS SUMMARY

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $23.5 million, a decrease of 15% compared with revenues of $27.7 million in the third quarter of 2011. The third quarter of 2011 was exceptional due to a particularly large project in Africa, that was delivered within a short period of time. On a sequential basis, revenues in the third quarter of 2012 increased by 43% compared with $16.4 million in the second quarter of 2012.

Gross profit in the third quarter was $9.7 million, or 41.3% of revenues, a decrease of 26% compared to gross profit of $13.1 million, or 47.2% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2011. The higher gross profit in the third quarter of 2011 was due to the large project in Africa. Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 increased 34% compared to gross profit of $7.2 million, or 44.1% of revenues in the second quarter of 2012. The variance in the gross margin between quarters reflects changes between products and projects in the revenue mix.  

Operating profit in the third quarter was $1.7 million, or 7.3% of revenues, compared to an operating profit of $5.6 million, or 20.4% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2011 and operating profit of $474 thousand, or 2.9% of revenues, in the second quarter of 2012.

Net income in the third quarter was $1.8 million, or $0.11 per share, compared with net income of $7.1 million, or $0.61 per share, in the third quarter of 2011 and net income of 938 thousand, or $0.06 per share in the second quarter of 2012.

Cash and short term deposits, net of current bank debt, as of September 30, 2012, increased to $39.2 million, or $2.44 per share, compared with cash and short term deposits, net of current bank debt, of $32.5 million, or $2.06 per share, on December 31, 2011.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Commenting on the results, Mr. Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal said, "We have shown continued sequential improvements in revenue throughout 2012 and have continued to build our profitability throughout the year. While our results in the second half of last year were exceptionally good due to the short delivery timeframe of the Africa Cup of Nations project, we are now executing on a much improved business platform than in previous years. We are very proud of our achievements and in the solid turnaround of our business over the past two years."  

Continued Mr. Livneh, "During the quarter, we continued to progress on a strategic basis which we believe assures our long-term future. We began offering cyber protection solutions by teaming with other technology companies to deliver turnkey cyber security solutions for critical sites in addition to the physical security we already provide. This enables us to offer a fully integrated suite of protection for customers in both the physical and online worlds. We have also continued to focus on cementing our presence in various key strategic regions globally. As always, we continue to look for other adjacent and synergistic markets that we can enter and bring significant value. With close to $40 million in net cash, our strong and growing cash levels provide us with greater flexibility and we are in a strong position to capitalize on opportunities as they may arise."

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 ...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
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...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
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 Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
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.
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...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DragonGlass, an enterprise search platform, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. After eleven years of designing and building custom applications, OpenCrowd has launched DragonGlass, a cloud-based platform that enables the development of search-based applications. These are a new breed of applications that utilize a search index as their backbone for data retrieval. They can easily adapt to new data sets and provide access to both structured and unstruc...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging.
