TASER Reports Record Quarterly Revenue of $35.2 Million

AXON Camera and EVIDENCE.com Bookings Increase 186% Sequentially to $5.8 Million

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 10/30/13 -- TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TASR), today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Financial Summary:

  • Net sales were $35.2 million in the quarter, an increase of $6.4 million, or 22.3%, compared to third quarter 2012 sales of $28.8 million. Upgrades by numerous law enforcement agencies to the new TASER® X26P™ and TASER X2™ Smart Weapons drove the increase. AXON® cameras, EVIDENCE.com and TASER® CAM™ HD recorders also contributed to the net sales increase in the third quarter.

  • TASER Weapons segment revenues grew $4.5 million year-over-year, or 16.8%, to $31.6 million in the third quarter of 2013.

  • EVIDENCE.com and Video product revenues increased by $1.9 million, or 111.5%, to $3.6 million in the third quarter of 2013.

  • Gross margin in the third quarter of 2013 was 62.8%, compared to 58.4% in the same period last year. The improvement in gross margin in the third quarter of 2013 was driven by the 22.3% increase in net sales which resulted in better leverage of overhead expense, increased sales prices and lower trade-in credit values. Gross margin continues to benefit from the Company's decision to utilize third-party cloud services in its Video segment. Gross margin also benefited from the full depreciation of the capitalized EVIDENCE.com software development costs.

  • Sales, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses of $12.8 million in the third quarter of 2013 increased 33.9%, from $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2012. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A increased to 36.3% in the third quarter 2013 compared to 33.2% in the prior year. The increase to SG&A was primarily driven by professional, accounting and legal fees and litigation expenses which increased $2.2 million compared to the prior year primarily due to expenses relating to the defense of product and commercial litigation. The Company expects expenses relating to the defense of product and commercial litigation to trend downward in the second half of 2014. Also contributing to the increase in SG&A, personnel expenses increased $0.7 million year-over-year due to the Company's strategic effort to enhance its customer-facing capabilities in roles such as account management and telesales, in addition to some incremental administrative functions. Finally, we incurred higher selling and marketing expenses of approximately $0.4 million to support our initiatives internationally and in the video market.

  • Research and development (R&D) expenses of $2.4 million for the third quarter of 2013 increased $0.5 million, or 22.9%, when compared to the third quarter of 2012 primarily driven by additional personnel expense related to EVIDENCE.com and Video product segment development initiatives. The Company expects to see increased expenses in R&D through 2014 as EVIDENCE.com scales and we begin to expand our cloud offerings into adjacent technologies in law enforcement.

  • Income from operations increased $1.6 million, or 30.4%, to $6.9 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $9.0 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase from Adjusted EBITDA of $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase is due to increased sales and margins.

  • Net income for the third quarter of 2013 was $5.1 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share.

  • In the third quarter of 2013, the Company generated $10.9 million in cash from operating activities. Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $48.3 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, up from $37.8 million at December 31, 2012.

"These are exciting times for us as our long-term business strategy is now intersecting several trends which we believe have hit a tipping point, namely officer-worn video and cloud computing," said Rick Smith, CEO of TASER International. "Last week, the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), one of the most respected thought leaders in public safety, held a session dedicated to the topic of officer-worn video where leading chiefs indicated they plan to implement body worn video in the near future. Similarly, the International Association of Chiefs of Police reports that over half of police chiefs surveyed indicate they are deploying or actively considering cloud solutions. These trends were underscored by the significant growth in bookings for our AXON cameras and EVIDENCE.com this quarter."

"The last few months have been full of momentous events for the Company including the launch of the AXON body™ camera, the Familiar team acquisition, the announcement of the EVIDENCE Mobile application all culminating in record quarterly revenues," said Rick Smith, CEO of TASER International, Inc. "It is a truly exciting time to be a part of TASER. We continue to deliver solid growth within the weapons segment, while generating significant traction in EVIDENCE.com. Sales bookings for the AXON flex™ and AXON body™ on-officer cameras and the EVIDENCE.com service more than quadrupled during the third quarter of 2013 compared to the same quarter in the prior year and nearly tripled compared to the second quarter of 2013. We also honed our strategy to further accelerate market adoption of EVIDENCE.com with our new, tiered pricing structure, which better allows us to tailor our services across various market segments. Given the growing momentum, we will continue to invest in EVIDENCE.com to strengthen our sales force and infrastructure, capture market share, and investigate adjacent opportunities to drive value for our stakeholders," concluded Smith.

AXON Flex and EVIDENCE.com Bookings is a statistical measure defined as the sales price of orders placed in the relevant time period. Bookings is an indication of the activity the Company is seeing relative to AXON Flex and EVIDENCE.com.

The Company has deliverables to meet, prior to recognizing revenue related to many of the orders. These statistics represent orders and not invoiced sales. Once invoiced, the revenue related to EVIDENCE.com is recognized over the requisite service period of one to five years. Due to municipal government funding rules, certain of the future year amounts included in bookings are subject to budget appropriation. Although TASER has entered into contracts for the delivery of products and services in the future and anticipates the contracts will be completed, if agencies do not appropriate money in future year budgets, revenue associated with these bookings will not ultimately be recognized, resulting in a future reduction to bookings.

For more information relative to our revenue recognition policies, please reference our SEC filings.
