“Value added solutions for our customers, which directly correlate to our growth in ARR, is evident in our results.

IoT Produkt & Dienstleistungen

The segment's second fiscal quarter 2024 revenue of $83 million decreased $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. This decrease consisted of an approximate $4.6 million decrease in product sales volume, with no material impact from pricing, from our Console Server and Cellular product lines that was partially offset by growth in OEM and $2.1 million in service revenue growth. ARR as of the end of the second fiscal quarter was $23 million, an increase of 35% from the prior fiscal year. This increase primarily was due to growth in the subscription base for Console Server services, complemented by growth in other business lines. Gross profit margin decreased 90 basis points to 54.0% of revenue for the second fiscal quarter of 2024, driven primarily by decreased volume as well as mix of lower gross profit products across Console Server and Cellular products. Operating income was $13 million, a decrease of 1%, primarily due to the decrease in revenue.

IoT Lösungen

The segment's second fiscal quarter 2024 revenue of $24 million decreased $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year, consisting of a $0.9 million increase in recurring revenue offset by a $1.0 million decrease in one time services volume and a $0.8 million decrease in hardware sales. ARR as of the end of the second fiscal quarter was $87 million, an increase of 6% from the prior fiscal year primarily driven by growth in SmartSense. Gross profit margins increased 860 basis points to 71.0% in the second fiscal quarter of 2024. This increase was the result of growth in higher margin ARR subscription revenues. Operating loss was $4.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $0.8 million a year ago driven by the above referenced litigation reserve.

Strategie der Kapitalallokation

We intend to deleverage the company while seeking optimal inventory levels as our supply chain continues to normalize. Our inventory position has declined but remains elevated. We believe this investment will deliver working capital benefits for Digi in future quarters.

Acquisitions remain a top capital priority for Digi. We will be disciplined in our approach and act when we believe an opportunity is appropriate to execute in the context of prevailing market conditions. We are evolving and monitoring our acquisition pipeline, and we intend to focus more on scale and ARR.

Third Fiscal Quarter 2024 and Full-Year 2024 Guidance

Digi remains steadfast in achieving our new long term strategic goals of doubling ARR and Adjusted EBITDA to $200 million within the next five years. Digi’s resilient execution in a large and growing Industrial Internet of Things market has stayed consistent. Our outlook on ARR growth for fiscal 2024 remains unchanged at 5%. While pleased with our first half results, we find our customers are more cautious on second half demand than we previously expected. This is demonstrated through longer than expected sales cycles which lowers our top line expectations. The softer top line expectations combined with tight expense controls slightly lowers our Adjusted EBITDA ranges to 0 to 5%, with revenue projection to be down 5% year over year. The macroeconomic conditions have us uncertain as to when, and to what degree, sales cycles will return to more normal conditions.

For the third fiscal quarter, revenues are estimated to be $103 million to $107 million. Adjusted EBITDA is estimated to be between $24.0 million and $25.5 million. Adjusted net income per share is anticipated to be between $0.47 and $0.51 per diluted share, assuming a weighted average diluted share count of 37.5 million shares.

We provide guidance or longer-term targets for Adjusted net income per share as well as Adjusted EBITDA targets on a non-GAAP basis. We do not reconcile these items to their most similar U.S. GAAP measure as it is difficult to predict without unreasonable efforts numerous items that include but are not limited to the impact of foreign exchange translation, restructuring, interest and certain tax related events. Given the uncertainty, any of these items could have a significant impact on U.S. GAAP results.

Darstellung von Non-GAAP-Finanzkennzahlen

Diese Mitteilung enthält den bereinigten Jahresüberschuss, den bereinigten Jahresüberschuss je verwässerter Aktie und das bereinigte EBITDA, die jeweils eine Non-GAAP-Kennzahl darstellen.

Wir sind uns bewusst, dass es wesentliche Einschränkungen bei der Verwendung von Non-GAAP-Kennzahlen gibt. Non-GAAP-Kennzahlen sind kein Ersatz für GAAP-Kennzahlen, wie z. B. den Jahresüberschuss, zum Zweck der Analyse der finanziellen Leistungsfähigkeit. Die Offenlegung dieser Kennzahlen spiegelt nicht alle Kosten und Gewinne wider, die von Digi tatsächlich verbucht wurden. Diese Non-GAAP-Kennzahlen stehen nicht im Einklang mit oder sind keine Alternative zu Kennzahlen, die nach allgemein anerkannten Rechnungslegungsgrundsätzen erstellt wurden, und können sich von Non-GAAP-Kennzahlen unterscheiden, die von anderen Unternehmen verwendet oder von uns in früheren Berichten dargestellt wurden. Darüber hinaus basieren diese Non-GAAP-Kennzahlen nicht auf einem umfassenden Satz von Rechnungslegungsvorschriften oder -prinzipien. Wir sind der Ansicht, dass Non-GAAP-Kennzahlen insofern Einschränkungen aufweisen, als sie nicht alle Beträge widerspiegeln, die mit unseren gemäß GAAP ermittelten Betriebsergebnissen verbunden sind. Wir sind der Meinung, dass diese Kennzahlen nur in Verbindung mit den entsprechenden GAAP-Kennzahlen zur Bewertung unserer Betriebsergebnisse verwendet werden sollten. Darüber hinaus spiegelt das bereinigte EBITDA nicht unsere Barausgaben, den Bedarf an liquiden Mitteln für den Ersatz abgeschriebener und abgeschriebener Vermögenswerte oder Änderungen oder den Bedarf an liquiden Mitteln für unseren Betriebskapitalbedarf wider.

We believe that providing historical and adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share, respectively, exclusive of such items as reversals of tax reserves, discrete tax benefits, restructuring charges and reversals, intangible amortization, stock-based compensation, other non-operating income/expense, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition-related expenses and interest expense related to acquisitions permits investors to compare results with prior periods that did not include these items. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. In addition, certain of our stockholders have expressed an interest in seeing financial performance measures exclusive of the impact of these matters, which while important, are not central to the core operations of our business. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, defined as EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring charges and reversals, and changes in fair value of contingent consideration, is useful to investors to evaluate our core operating results and financial performance because it excludes items that are significant non-cash or non-recurring items reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue is useful because it provides a reliable and consistent approach to measuring our performance from year to year and in assessing our performance against that of other companies. We believe this information helps compare operating results and corporate performance exclusive of the impact of our capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.
