WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., March 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter increased sequentially 11% to $7.2 million, compared to $6.5 million for the third quarter of 2010, as sales of systems and services increased across I.D. Systems' primary market segments—wireless industrial vehicle management and trailer fleet management.
  • Revenue for the year increased to $25.9 million, compared to $10.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, reflecting the strategic acquisition of the Asset Intelligence business unit in January, 2010, and improving economic and market conditions in the second half of 2010. The Asset Intelligence business contributed revenue of $15.2 million for the year.
  • Gross margins for both the fourth quarter and full fiscal year were 56%, compared to 28% for the fourth quarter of 2009 and 46% for the full fiscal year 2009. 
  • Cash flow from operations was positive for the second consecutive quarter. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of December 31, 2010 increased to $28.4 million from $28.2 million as of September 30, 2010.  For the last six months of 2010, positive cash flow from operations was $1.9 million, compared to net cash used of $5.5 million for the first six months of the year.
  • Excluding stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization of intangible assets, non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 decreased 68% to $1.3 million, or ($0.12) per basic and diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $4.1 million, or ($0.37) per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009. 
  • For the last six months of 2010, non-GAAP net loss decreased 62% to $2.4 million, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $6.2 million for the first six months of 2010. 

"We are pleased by our progress in the second half of 2010 and believe we are well positioned for 2011," said Jeffrey Jagid, I.D. Systems' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our top line revenue growth, and the underlying improvement in economic conditions in the industrial markets we serve, is encouraging. Our margins are strong, especially from the recurring service contract revenue of our Asset Intelligence subsidiary. We have met or exceeded the goals we set at the beginning of the year to reduce and control the Company's operating costs.  And we increased our net cash position by almost $2 million in the second half of the year, with no debt."

Customers contributing to I.D. Systems' revenue growth in 2010 included American Airlines, American Eagle Airlines, Ford Motor Company, GE Transportation, Knight Transportation, Nestlé, and Walmart.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2010, net loss was $2.7 million, or ($0.24) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $4.8 million, or ($0.43) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. For the year ended December 31, 2010, net loss was $12.6 million, or ($1.12) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $13.2 million, or ($1.20) per basic and diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2009. Fiscal 2010 results include the operations of I.D. Systems' Asset Intelligence subsidiary, acquired in January, 2010, which are not included in the fiscal 2009 results.

Highlights for fiscal 2010 included:

  • I.D. Systems' acquisition of Asset Intelligence, a leading provider of wireless solutions for tracking and managing trailers, containers, and other supply chain assets, which expanded the scope of I.D. Systems' asset management solutions, broadened the Company's customer base, and contributed a high-margin recurring revenue stream. 
  • Expansion of I.D. Systems' wireless technology solutions with existing customers, including, for industrial vehicle management, American Airlines, American Eagle Airlines, Audi AG, Ford Motor Company, Procter & Gamble, Nestlé, Walgreens and Walmart, and, for Asset Intelligence transportation fleet management, Forward Air and Knight Transportation.
  • Initial implementations of I.D. Systems' wireless technology solutions with new customers, including, for industrial vehicle management, Campbell's Soup, General Mills and the Red River Army Depot, and, for transportation fleet management, Container Port Group, Garner Transportation and Royal Freight.
  • Execution of a marketing agreement with The Raymond Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of material handling vehicles, and growing sales of I.D. Systems' solutions through Raymond's national account sales organization and dealer network.
  • The development and deployment of a new generation of rental fleet management technology for a leading U.S. rental car company, encompassing both traditional airport-based rental fleet management and a remote, charge-by-the-hour "car-sharing" system.
  • Development of new products to expand the markets and applications addressed by I.D. Systems' solutions, including:
  • VeriWise™ Track & Trace, a low-cost, long-life cellular device with flexible mounting options and simple installation, aimed at trailer and container location tracking, theft countermeasures, and short-term asset analytics.
  • SafeNav™ Powered by Garmin™, an on-vehicle, GPS-based navigation and alert system designed to provide airport vehicle operators with real-time situational awareness, with the goal of avoiding accidental runway incursions.
  • PowerBox™ industrial vehicle management system, a hosted, out-of-the-box solution designed to simplify system acquisition, deployment and benefit achievement for customers with small to medium fleets, or larger fleets with basic vehicle management requirements.   
  • Expansion of I.D. Systems' intellectual property portfolio, including the award of new patents on vehicle access control, mobile asset management, baggage tracking, and automated remote asset maintenance.
  • A stock repurchase program, implemented in November, 2010, authorizing the repurchase of issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock up to an aggregate value of $3 million, to be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, funded from I.D.
