Nov. 12, 2015 4:00 pm |  More About Xplore Technologies


Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR) reported its results for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016. For the three months ended September 30, 2015, Xplore reported revenue of $28,853,000, compared to $7,522,000 in reported revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $21,331,000, or approximately 284%. For the six months ended September 30, 2015, Xplore reported revenue of $52,896,000, compared to $15,789,000 in reported revenue for the six months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $37,107,000, or approximately 235%. These increases resulted from revenue associated with the product line Xplore acquired in the April 17, 2015 acquisition of certain assets of Motion Computing, Inc. (the “Motion Acquisition”), as well as an increase in revenue associated with Xplore’s historical product line for the three months and six months ended September 30, 2015, of 44% and 37%, respectively.

“We are thrilled by the better than expected and record revenue for the quarter and the fiscal first half,” said Philip S. Sassower, chairman and chief executive officer for Xplore. “Even more importantly, we are very pleased that Xplore was able to generate a bottom line profit in the second quarter as our integration efforts with respect to the Motion Acquisition are proceeding ahead of schedule. We are very focused on the bottom line and we continue to work on delivering additional integration benefits.”

“We are very pleased with the continued improvement of Xplore’s success in our 2016 fiscal year with the favorable results for this quarter,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore. “Pent up demand for certain products resulted in better than expected revenue, during what has traditionally been a slow quarter for us. The market place is strong and we are seeing success with expanding the offering of our products through multiple sales channels.”

Xplore’s reported gross profit increased to $8,109,000 (28.1% of revenue) for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, compared to reported gross profit of $2,267,000 (30.1% of revenue) for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The increase in gross profit was attributable to the abovementioned increase in revenue. The decrease in gross profit percentage was primarily due to changes in product mix.

Xplore’s reported operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were $7,706,000 and $3,430,000, respectively, representing an increase of $4,276,000, or approximately 125%. Reported operating expenses for the six months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were $15,487,000 and $7,026,000, respectively, representing an increase of $8,461,000, or approximately 120%. These increases were predominately attributable to higher overhead expenses needed to support Xplore’s product line expansion.

Xplore reported income from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2015 of $403,000, compared to a reported loss of $1,163,000 for the prior year period. Xplore reported income from operations for the six months ended September 30, 2015 of $772,000, compared to a reported loss from operations of $1,695,000 for the prior year period. Xplore reported net income of $98,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to a reported net loss of $1,167,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2015, and reported net losses of $146,000 and $1,718,000, for the six months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. These improvements in results were attributable to increased revenue and an overall increase in gross profit, partially offset by an increase in operating expenses to support the new product lines.
