Lantronix Reports Record Results for First Quarter of Fiscal 2022

November 10, 2021 GMT

  • Record First Quarter Net Revenue of $27.7 Million, up 62% Year Over Year, 34% Sequentially
  • First Quarter GAAP EPS totaled ($0.08) per Share vs. ($0.01) in the Prior Year
  • First Quarter Non-GAAP EPS totaled $0.08 per Share vs. $0.05 in Prior Year
  • Demand Strengthened, Driving Another Record Backlog Entering Q2 Fiscal 2022
  • Cash Balance Improved to $10.3 Million

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global provider of secure turnkey solutions for Intelligent IT and Internet of Things (IoT), today reported results for the first quarter of fiscal 2022.

Net revenue totaled $27.7 million, up 62 percent year-over-year and up 34 percent sequentially.


GAAP EPS totaled ($0.08), compared to ($0.01) in the prior year and ($0.04) in the prior quarter.

Non-GAAP EPS totaled $0.08, compared to $0.05 in the prior year and $0.06 in the prior quarter.

“Demand for Lantronix solutions strengthened again in our first quarter, and we entered the second quarter with record backlog in place,” stated Paul Pickle, president and CEO of Lantronix. “The integration of our most recent acquisition is well underway, and we are growing organically at a double-digit rate. As we focus on execution in a difficult supply chain environment, we expect to deliver strong year-over-year results for our shareholders.”

Business Outlook

Demand strengthened during the company’s fiscal first quarter, and the company currently believes that without supply chain constrains, it could post full-year revenue and non-GAAP EPS results above the high-end of the guidance range. However, taking the current supply chain dynamics into account, the company’s more conservative expectations for the full year fiscal 2022 has improved to revenue growth of 54–75 percent with non-GAAP EPS growth of 95–135 percent.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Lantronix believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial information, when presented in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s financial condition and results of operations. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP net income consists of net loss excluding (i) share-based compensation and the employer portion of withholding taxes on stock grants, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) interest income (expense), (iv) other income (expense), (v) income tax provision (benefit), (vi) restructuring, severance and related charges, (vii) acquisition related costs, (viii) impairment of long-lived assets, (ix) amortization of purchased intangibles, and (x) amortization of manufacturing profit in acquired inventory.

Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net loss by non-GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income per share, the calculation of GAAP weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, which for GAAP purposes is treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method.

Guidance on earnings per share growth is provided only on a non-GAAP basis due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of certain items that have been excluded from the forward-looking non-GAAP measures, and a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP guidance has not been provided because certain factors that are materially significant to Lantronix’s ability to estimate the excluded items are not accessible or estimable on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort.

In addition, actual results may differ as a result of additional risks and uncertainties of which we are currently unaware or which we do not currently view as material to our business. For these reasons, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements we make speak only as of the date on which they are made. We expressly disclaim any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof to conform such statements to actual results or to changes in our opinions or expectations, except as required by applicable law or the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC. If we do update or correct any forward-looking statements, investors should not conclude that we will make additional updates or corrections.
