Motorola Solutions Reports First-Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) today reported its earnings results for the first quarter of 2014. Click here for printable press release and financial tables.

REVENUE

  • Government segment sales declined 11 percent to $1.2 billion reflecting lower aged backlog in the quarter and a challenging year-ago comparison in the Federal business. In addition, North America sales were weaker than expected due to lower ASTRO and professional commercial radio subscriber volume. Global sales were strong in TETRA, and the Services business grew single-digits for the quarter.
  • Enterprise segment sales declined 4 percent to $600 million primarily due to the expected decline in iDEN. Excluding the impact of iDEN, Enterprise revenues declined less than 1 percent primarily driven by the delay of several deals late in the quarter, primarily in North America.

SUPPORTING QUOTE

Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions

“First quarter sales results were below expectations due to lower order volume in both Enterprise and North America Government,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions. “The long-term fundamentals of our Government business remain solid and, with the announced sale of the Enterprise business, we will accelerate ongoing cost actions to improve our competitiveness and operating leverage going forward.”

OTHER SELECTED FINANCIAL RESULTS

  • Operating margin — GAAP operating margin was 9.4 percent of sales; non-GAAP operating margin decreased to 11.8 percent. These results include $45 million in lower expenses compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to cost initiatives undertaken in late 2013.
  • Taxes — The GAAP effective tax rate was 16 percent, compared to 6 percent for the first quarter of 2013. The non-GAAP effective tax rate was 33 percent, compared to 30 percent for the first quarter of 2013. The increase in the non-GAAP effective tax rate is due to the expiration of 2013 research and development credits.
  • Cash flow — The company generated $46 million in operating cash flow during the quarter. This is a $77 million improvement from the first quarter of 2013 primarily driven by the timing of long-term contract milestone billings and return of cash that was seized by India tax authorities in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Cash and cash equivalents The company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $3.1 billion while returning $136 million to shareholders through share repurchases and cash dividends.
  • Share repurchase program — The company repurchased $57 million of its common stock in the first quarter reflecting lower activity as a result of the discussions leading to the Enterprise sale announced on April 15.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Secured $175 million contract with the Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System Authority to provide a public safety LTE network.
  • Secured $113 million contract with the state of Indiana to upgrade its statewide infrastructure system including $78 million for 20 years of services.
  • Introduced three new model families to industry-leading APX P25 portfolio.
  • Continued to demonstrate leadership in retail and transportation and logistics by securing contracts with key customers such as retailers CVS and Tesco (UK) and couriers FedEx, Correos (Spain) and GLS (Germany).
  • Introduced DS4800 series of 2D array imagers offering enterprise-class scanning capabilities in a modern industrial design that enhances the ambiance of the retail point of sale (POS) environment.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK***

  • Second quarter 2014 — Motorola Solutions expects a revenue decline of 5 to 8 percent compared with the second quarter of 2013, with non-GAAP earnings per share in the range of $0.58 to $0.64 per share.
  • Full year 2014 — The company expects a revenue decline of low single digits compared with 2013, with non-GAAP operating margins of approximately 18.5 percent of sales, consistent with the previous outlook.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In addition to the GAAP results included in this presentation, Motorola Solutions also has included non-GAAP measurements of results. The company has provided these non-GAAP measurements to help investors better understand its core operating performance, enhance comparisons of core operating performance from period to period and allow better comparisons of operating performance to its competitors. Among other things, management uses these operating results, excluding the identified items, to evaluate performance of the businesses and to evaluate results relative to certain incentive compensation targets. Management uses operating results excluding these items because it believes this measurement enables it to make better period-to-period evaluations of the financial performance of core business operations. The non-GAAP measurements are intended only as a supplement to the comparable GAAP measurements and the company compensates for the limitations inherent in the use of non-GAAP measurements by using GAAP measures in conjunction with the non-GAAP measurements. As a result, investors should consider these non-GAAP measurements in addition to, and not in substitution for or as superior to, measurements of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Highlighted items: The company has excluded the effects of highlighted items (and any reversals of highlighted items recorded in prior periods) from its non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measurements because the company believes that these historical items do not reflect expected future operating earnings or expenses and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company’s current operating performance or comparisons to the company’s past operating performance.

Share-based compensation expense: The company has excluded share-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measurements. Although share-based compensation is a key incentive offered to the company’s employees and the company believes such compensation contributed to the revenue earned during the periods presented and also believes it will contribute to the generation of future period revenues, the company continues to evaluate its performance excluding share-based compensation expense primarily because it represents a significant non-cash expense. Share-based compensation expense will recur in future periods.

Intangible assets amortization expense: The company has excluded intangible assets amortization expense from its non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measurements, primarily because it represents a significant non-cash expense and because the company evaluates its performance excluding intangible assets amortization expense. Amortization of intangible assets is consistent in amount and frequency but is significantly affected by the timing and size of the company’s acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to the company’s revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to the company’s future period revenues as well. Intangible assets amortization expense will recur in future periods.

Details of the above items and reconciliations of the non-GAAP measurements to the corresponding GAAP measurements can be found at the end of this press release.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
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, November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions.
