GAAP Fiscal Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Total revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 10% to $29.3 million, compared with $26.6 million in the same quarter a year ago. This revenue increase was driven primarily by a 14% increase in Roadway Sensors and a 7% increase in Transportation Systems.
Operating expenses in the second quarter decreased approximately $1.3 million to $10.6 million, compared with approximately $11.9 million in the same quarter a year ago, primarily due to a decrease in bid and proposal activities in the Transportation Systems segment driven by the timing and size of certain opportunities in the current quarter compared with the same quarter a year ago.
Operating income from continuing operations in the second quarter was approximately $0.7 million, compared with an operating loss of approximately $1.2 million in the same quarter a year ago. Net income from continuing operations in the second quarter was approximately $0.7 million, or $0.02 diluted per share, compared with a loss of approximately $1.1 million, or $(0.03) per share, in the same quarter a year ago.
Non-GAAP Fiscal Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the company has included the following non-GAAP financial measure: Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring charges (“Adjusted EBITDA”). A discussion of the company’s use of this non-GAAP financial measure is set forth below in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation.”
