Digi International Reports Second Fiscal Quarter 2012 Results

Digi International® Inc. (NASDAQ: DGII) reported revenue of $49.0 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2012, compared with $49.7 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2011, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 1.4%.

Net income was $2.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the second fiscal quarter of 2012 compared to $2.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the year ago comparable quarter.

”We are disappointed with our most recent quarter financial results that were impacted by lower than expected revenue from our new business pipeline, particularly in the energy sector. We also experienced lower than expected revenue from specific legacy products,” said Joe Dunsmore, Digi’s Chief Executive Officer.

Strategically, we were pleased with our progress during the quarter regarding the positioning of our iDigi platform for broad adoption. We announced key relationships with Freescale, Wind River and Intel to enable the iDigi Device Cloud in their products and applications. These relationships demonstrate our position as a leader in the ongoing transformation of the M2M marketplace that we believe is poised for solid growth in future years,” continued Dunsmore.

“As we continue to shift our business towards the delivery of end-to-end M2M solutions, we are taking steps to structure our operations to support those solutions more aggressively.”

Fiscal 2012 Guidance

For the third fiscal quarter of 2012, Digi projects revenue in a range of $46 million to $51 million. Digi projects net income per diluted share in a range of $0.03 to $0.10 cents. Projected net income per diluted share for the third fiscal quarter of 2012 includes the impact of an anticipated pre-tax restructuring charge of approximately $0.9 million to $1.1 million, or $0.02 to $0.03 per diluted share, pertaining to the North American region. The anticipated restructuring charge relates to changes being implemented to focus more aggressively on the shift to end-to-end M2M solutions, as discussed above.

For the full fiscal year 2012, Digi projects revenue in a range of $190 million to $200 million. Digi projects annual net income per diluted share to be in a range of $0.26 to $0.38, including the aforementioned restructuring charge.
