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."

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."

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.
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. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
