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."

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

What are the successful IoT innovations from emerging markets? What are the unique challenges and opportunities from these markets? How did the constraints in connectivity among others lead to groundbreaking insights? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Carmen Feliciano, a Principal at AMDG, will answer all these questions and share how you can apply IoT best practices and frameworks from the emerging markets to your own business.
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
