Units in service at June 30, 2011 totaled 1,779,000, compared to 2,027,000 a year earlier.
  • The quarterly rate of revenue erosion improved significantly to 0.8 percent in the second quarter from 3.9 percent in the first quarter and 5.8 percent in the year-earlier quarter, and was the lowest quarterly rate of revenue decline since the Company's formation in 2004. The annual rate of revenue erosion improved to 11.9 percent from 16.3 percent in the first quarter and 21.3 percent in the year-earlier quarter, also reaching its lowest level in many years.
  • Total ARPU (average revenue per unit) was $8.74 in the second quarter, compared to $8.72 in the first quarter and $8.87 in the second quarter of 2010.

Software

  • Bookings for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 were $15.2 million, while the backlog was $20.5 million at June 30th.
  • Of the $13.1 million in Software revenue, $3.2 million was maintenance revenue and $9.9 million was operations revenue (which includes software, professional services and equipment sales). Software revenue, excluding the purchase accounting adjustments of $2.6 million, was $15.7 million for the second quarter, an Amcom company record.
  • The renewal rate for maintenance in the second quarter was 99.9 percent.

Total Company

  • Operating expenses (excluding depreciation, amortization and accretion) totaled $43.7 million in the second quarter, with $31.7 million for Wireless and $12.0 million for Software, compared to operating expenses of $39.5 million in the first quarter, with $35.6 million for Wireless (which included $2.9 million in acquisition related expenses) and $3.9 million for Software for the 29-day period ended March 31.
  • EBITDA margin (or EBITDA as a percentage of revenue) was 32.9 percent, compared to 31.2 percent in the first quarter. EBITDA margin for Wireless was 39.2 percent, compared to 32.3 percent in the first quarter and 34.6 percent in the year-earlier quarter.
  • Capital expenses were $1.9 million, compared to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2010.
  • Stockholders' dividends paid were $5.5 million in the second quarter.
  • The Company's cash balance at June 30, 2011 was $29.5 million.
  • The Company retired $14.1 million of bank debt during the second quarter. The outstanding debt balance at June 30, 2011 was $37.8 million at an interest rate of 5.25 percent.

Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer, said: "We are pleased to report outstanding operating results for the second quarter. Consistent with financial guidance we provided earlier this year, results either met or exceeded key performance targets for both our Wireless and Software businesses. We were especially encouraged to see significant improvement in the pace of paging subscriber and revenue erosion, as rates of decline reached their best level in many years. Our recently acquired Software subsidiary, Amcom Software, also recorded a strong performance with solid bookings and a growing backlog. At the same time, we continued to maintain strong operating margins, reduce expenses in our Wireless business, pay down debt incurred with the Amcom acquisition, and generate sufficient cash flow to again return capital to stockholders in the form of dividend distributions."

Kelly said the Company continued to focus Wireless sales and marketing efforts during the quarter around its core market segments of Healthcare, Government and Large Enterprise. "These core segments represented 89.5 percent of our direct subscriber base and 84.3 percent of our direct paging revenue at the end of the second quarter. Healthcare, which now represents 65.5 percent of our direct customer base, continued to be our best performing market segment with the highest rate of gross placements and lowest rate of net unit loss. The net loss rate among Healthcare accounts improved to 0.5 percent in the second quarter, its lowest level in years, as healthcare providers continue to benefit from the reliability of paging for their most critical messaging needs."

With respect to the Software business, Christopher Heim, president of Amcom Software, noted: "Amcom continues to outperform expectations. During the quarter our Software sales team continued to sell solutions primarily to the hospital market where there is growing demand for call center management, critical smartphone messaging, and clinical middleware. As a result, we ended the quarter with a solid backlog and pipeline of new business opportunities. In addition, we ramped up training programs for both Software and Wireless sales teams during the quarter with the goal of sharing account leads and generating cross selling opportunities for each line of business. Looking ahead, we expect to further integrate the operational capabilities of each business to enhance organizational efficiencies and generate additional business prospects."

Shawn E. Endsley, chief financial officer, said the Company continued to reduce operating expenses in its Wireless business during the second quarter. "Recurring operating expenses (excluding depreciation, amortization and accretion) for Wireless decreased 18.0 percent from the year-earlier quarter," Endsley noted, "exceeding the 11.9 percent rate of Wireless revenue decline." As a result, he added, the Company continued to generate strong cash flow during the quarter. "Including software operations for the full quarter, the combined businesses generated net cash from operating activities of $20.1 million, compared to $12.7 million in the first quarter."

Regarding financial guidance for 2011, Endsley said the Company revised and improved its prior guidance for the full year based primarily on the strong performance of its Wireless business. In schedules attached to this press release, the full-year adjusted guidance reflects Software's results for the partial year (March 3 to December 31) as well as the required purchase accounting adjustments for deferred revenue. As such, Endsley said the Company expects total revenues for 2011 to range from $235 million to $248 million (versus earlier guidance of $224 million to $240 million), with Wireless between $193 million and $200 million (up from $182 million and $192 million) and Software between $42 million and $48 million; operating expenses (excluding depreciation, amortization and accretion) to range from $162 million to $174 million (versus earlier guidance of $167 million to $176 million), with Wireless between $127 million and $134 million (versus $132 million and $136 million) and Software between $35 million and $40 million; and capital expenses to range from $6.5 million to $9 million (versus prior guidance of $6 million to $9 million), with Wireless between $6 million and $8 million (versus $5 million and $7 million) and Software between $0.5 million and $1 million (versus $1 million and $2 million).
