Revenue in Q4'21 was $149.9 million and Adjusted EBITDA was $7.3 million

Sierra Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. All results are reported in U.S. dollars and are prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), except as otherwise indicated below.1,3

“We worked closely with our customers, partners and suppliers to deliver strong sequential and year-over-year revenue growth in the Fourth Quarter,” said Phil Brace, President and CEO of Sierra Wireless. "We continue to see strong demand for our solutions and we are working hard in a challenging environment to secure raw materials and deliver to our customers."

Fourth Quarter 2021 Compared to Fourth Quarter 2020

  • Revenue was $149.9 million, an increase of 24.4%. The improved performance was due to (i) strong demand; (ii) realization of previous investments in inventory in a supply constrained environment; and (iii) improved manufacturing flexibility with multi-factory production.
  • Gross margin was 32.5% as compared to 36.0% in the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease was mainly driven by higher component costs as a result of the continued supply chain constraints as well as product mix.
  • Operating expenses were $58.6 million, a decrease of 10.8% resulting from improved expense control measures.
  • Net loss from continuing operations was $11.8 million compared to $11.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations* was $1.1 million, or earnings of $0.03 per share, as compared to a loss of $7.0 million, or loss of $0.19 per share in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $7.3 million compared to a loss of $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Connectivity, software, and services revenue was $36.3 million, an increase of 11.3%. Monthly recurring revenue ("MRR")2 was $11.6 million in December, a year-over-year increase of 10.5%.

Full Year Fiscal 2021 Compared to Fiscal 2020

  • Total revenue was $473.2 million, an increase of 5.5%. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the growth of IoT connectivity services. Revenue was negatively impacted by the manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam as a result of COVID-19 during the third quarter of 2021.
  • Gross margin was 33.1% as compared to 35.4% in 2020. In 2021, gross margins of both reportable segments were impacted by increased component costs. In addition, gross margin was negatively impacted by the manufacturing capacity constraints in Vietnam during the third quarter of 2021.
  • Operating expenses were $236.3 million, a decrease of 4.2%. Excluding impairment, our operating expenses decreased 9.2%.
  • Net loss from continuing operations was $88.7 million as compared to $70.2 million in 2020.
  • Adjusted net loss from continuing operations* was $30.3 million, or loss of $0.82 per share compared to a loss of $51.0 million, or loss of $1.40 per share in 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* was a loss of $7.8 million as compared to a loss of $34.9 million in 2020.

Segmented Information

IoT Solutions

Revenue from IoT Solutions increased 28.2% to $104.5 million as compared to $81.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to significantly higher sales of IoT devices and growth in IoT connectivity services. Hardware sales were positively impacted by the realization of previous investment in inventory to fulfill strong demand in a supply constrained environment. IoT Solutions gross margin was 25.4% in the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to 28.6% in the same period of the prior year due to higher component costs as a result of continued supply chain constraints.

Enterprise Solutions

Revenue from Enterprise Solutions increased 16.6% to $45.4 million as compared to $38.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to stronger sales from our new gateway and router products. Hardware sales were positively impacted by the realization of previous investment in inventory to fulfill strong demand in a supply constrained environment. Enterprise Solutions margin was 48.7% in the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to 51.5% in the same period of the prior year due to higher component costs as a result of continued supply chain constraints.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash at the end of the fourth quarter of 2021 were $76.9 million, an increase of $1.4 million compared to $75.5 million at the end of the third quarter of 2021. In January 2022, we announced that we had entered into a CAD$60 million debt facility agreement with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and the Business Development Bank of Canada. The new debt facility has a term of four years and a first-year interest rate of 5%.

Financial Guidance

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our global business continues to remain uncertain. While we continue to evaluate the effects of COVID-19 on our business, the overall severity and duration of adverse impacts related to COVID-19 on our business, financial condition, cash flows and operating results for the first quarter 2022 and beyond cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. Due to continued strong demand and the investment in inventory to combat the industry-wide tightness in supply, we expect our revenue in the first quarter 2022 to be in the range of $135 million to $150 million, with a midpoint of $142.5 million.

This non-GAAP guidance constitutes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities laws and reflects current business indicators and expectations. These statements are based on management's current beliefs and assumptions, which could prove to be significantly incorrect. Forward-looking statements, particularly those that relate to longer periods of time, are subject to substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events or results to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements, including those described in our regulatory filings. See "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" below.

______________________________

1 Non-GAAP financial measures referred to in this news release are labeled as "non-GAAP measure" or designated as such with an asterisk (*). Please see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for explanations of why the Company uses these non-GAAP measures and "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results by Quarter" for reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measures.

2 MRR is defined as the monthly recurring revenue generated from connectivity, software, and services as well as usage fees from current customers. MRR is a key performance metric to measure our performance and growth in our recurring revenue, both to help investors better understand and assess the performance of our business and also because our mix of revenue generated from recurring sources has increased in recent years. MRR does not have any standardized meaning and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. MRR should be viewed independently of revenue and deferred revenue and is not intended to be combined with or to replace either of those items. MRR is not a forecast.

3 In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the results of operations of the Automotive Business are reported as discontinued operations in our consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP on a basis consistent for all periods presented. In addition to results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental indicators of our operating performance. The term “non-GAAP financial measure” is used to refer to a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that: (i) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP in a company’s statement of earnings, balance sheet or statement of cash flows; or (ii) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented.

Our non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are adjusted net earnings (loss) from continuing operations*, adjusted basic and diluted net earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations*and adjusted EBITDA* (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization).

Adjusted net earnings (loss) from continuing operations* excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes, phantom RSU expense which represents expenses related to compensation units settled in cash based on the stock price at vesting, restructuring costs, acquisition-related and integration costs, government grants related to COVID-19 relief, CEO retirement/search, impairment, the ransomware incident, COVID-19 factory constraint incremental costs, certain other non-recurring costs or recoveries, acquisition-related amortization, the impact of foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of certain balance sheet accounts, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses on forward contracts, and certain tax adjustments.

Adjusted EBITDA* is defined as net earnings (loss) from continuing operations plus stock-based compensation expense and related social taxes, phantom RSU expense which represents expenses related to compensation units settled in cash based on the stock price at vesting, restructuring costs, acquisition-related and integration costs, government grants related to COVID-19 relief, CEO retirement/search, impairment, the ransomware incident, COVID-19 factory constraint incremental costs, certain other non-recurring costs or recoveries, amortization, interest and other income (expense), foreign exchange gains or losses on translation of certain balance sheet accounts, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses on forward contracts, and income tax expense (recovery). Adjusted EBITDA* is a metric used by investors and analysts for valuation purposes and is an important indicator of our operating performance and our ability to generate liquidity through operating cash flow that will fund future working capital needs and fund future capital expenditures.

We use the above-noted non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes and to allow us to assess the performance of our business before including the impacts of the items noted above as they affect the comparability of our financial results. These non-GAAP measures are reviewed regularly by management and the Board of Directors as part of the ongoing internal assessment of our operating performance.

We disclose these non-GAAP financial measures as we believe they provide useful information to investors and analysts to assist them in their evaluation of our operating results and to assist in comparisons from one period to another. Readers are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
