WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., May 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless solutions for tracking, securing and managing high-value enterprise assets, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

  • Revenue for the first quarter of 2011 increased 28% to $7.8 million from $6.1 million for the same period a year ago. The increase was primarily attributable to increased sales of I.D. Systems' wireless industrial vehicle management systems.
  • Gross margin for the first quarter of 2011 was 53%, reflecting price stability, high-margin recurring service contract revenue, and management's focus on product cost controls.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses decreased 21% compared to the first quarter a year ago. The decrease reflects management's continued efforts to reduce operating costs, primarily by integrating the operations of Asset Intelligence, which I.D. Systems acquired in January of 2010.
  • Excluding stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization, non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2011 improved to $852,000, or ($0.08) per basic and diluted share, from a non-GAAP net loss of $3.2 million, or ($0.28) per basic and diluted share, for the first quarter a year ago.
  • Net loss for the first quarter of 2011 improved to $1.8 million, or ($0.16) per basic and diluted share, from a net loss of $4.1 million, or ($0.36) per basic and diluted share, for the first quarter of 2010. 

Additional highlights for the first quarter of 2011 included:

  • Continuing business with key customers such as 3M, American Airlines, Audi, Caterpillar, Ford, Knight Transportation, Nestlé, the U.S. Postal Service, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart.
  • Increasing business development through channel partners, who sold I.D. Systems' industrial vehicle management systems to new customers in the apparel, electronics, retail, grocery, and package delivery industries.
  • Receipt of initial orders for PowerBox™, a pre-configured, remotely hosted, subscription-based vehicle management system targeted at customers seeking basic, easy-to-deploy fleet management functions.
  • Initial shipments of SafeNav™ Powered by Garmin™, an on-vehicle GPS-based navigation and alert system designed to provide airport vehicle operators with real-time situational awareness to help avoid accidental runway incursions.
  • An "Innovator of the Year" award won by Asset Intelligence customer Marten Transport, which used the VeriWise™ trailer management system to control refrigerated trailer temperatures in a new way, resulting in savings of more than $1.5 million annually.

"The momentum we built in the second half of 2010 continued into the first quarter of 2011," said Jeffrey Jagid, I.D. Systems' chairman and chief executive officer. "We continue to execute on our growth strategy, which is reflected in these quarterly results, including double-digit top-line revenue growth, a foundation of recurring service contract revenue, a healthy gross margin, continued success in controlling operating costs, and a strong balance sheet with no debt."

As of March 31, 2011, I.D. Systems had $26.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, and $24.3 million of working capital.

Under a stock repurchase program instituted in November, 2010, I.D.
