Lattice Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results




PENNSAUKEN, NJ — (Marketwired) — 08/22/16 — Lattice Incorporated (OTCQB: LTTC) (“Lattice” or the “Company”), a cloud-solutions provider of inmate management network systems for correction facilities, announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Total revenue decreased to $1.3 million, down from $2.4 million in the year-ago period

Of Total revenue:

Service revenue was even with prior year at approximately $1.2 million

Technology revenue decreased to approximately $124,000, down from $1.2 million in the year-ago period

“Our technology sales can experience quite a bit of volatility from quarter to quarter. While we experienced the negative side of this volatility in the second quarter, impacting total revenues, we anticipate full year revenue for technology sales to be on par with prior year results, and our service revenue, strengthened by the recent launch of our CellMate Mobile platform, is expected to resume its growth trend by year-end,” commented Paul Burgess, CEO of Lattice.

Service revenue was even with the prior year quarter at approximately $1.2 million. Service revenue derives mainly from recurring services provided to correctional facilities based on multi-year contractual relationships with local governments. This revenue consists primarily of call provisioning revenue, fees charged for prepaid account management, voicemail, support, software maintenance, and validation services. The slowdown in service revenue growth and decline in call provisioning revenue was due to reduced sales activity as we restructured our sales force and realigned targeted customer markets. Based on the existing sales pipeline and the launch of our CellMate product, we expect revenue growth to resume later this year and into 2017.

Technology product revenues decreased to approximately $124,000 from $1.2 million in the prior year period. This revenue stream varies greatly period to period with the timing of shipments and larger orders. Quarter to quarter variations in this revenue materially impacts the Company–s operating results and cash flows but does not necessarily suggest a trend. We continue to expect full year revenue to be consistent with prior year levels. For 2015, we recorded technology sales totaling approximately $2.7 million.

Gross margin decreased to 29.7% from 48.3% in the prior year. The decrease in percentage in the current quarter was mainly attributable to revenue mix as total revenue included lower technology sales relative to service revenue. Technology revenue accounted for 9% of total revenue compared to 51% in the prior year. We expect gross profit as a percentage of revenues for both technology and service revenues to continue to track with historical levels at approximately 60% and 30%, respectively.
