Fiscal 2022 Financial Guidance

For the fiscal 2022 year ending October 31, 2022, RF Industries expects:

  • Full year total revenue of $80 million, up from its previous guidance of $75 million.
  • Gross margins expected to increase as product mix changes and supply chain impact moderates.
  • Should favorable market conditions persist, the Company expects profitability and liquidity to further improve in the second half of the fiscal year from operational efficiencies, inventory rationalization, and other key initiatives.

Robert Dawson, President and CEO of RF Industries, commented:

"Our strong sequential and year-over-year revenue growth and improved gross margins for the second quarter reflect organic growth in all our divisions, as well as the benefit of two months of higher margin revenue contribution from our successful acquisition of Microlab that we completed during the quarter. In addition to the continued growth we are generating in our core business, we are excited about the expanded customer opportunities we are already seeing with our broader product offering from Microlab that will provide additional scale and opportunity for overall margin improvement and further revenue growth.

"Yesterday we announced a significant set of orders for our Optiflex hybrid fiber cabling solution supporting a new wireless carrier customer's next generation 4G/5G infrastructure build. These kinds of new relationships demonstrate the increasing value that we're providing in the market and reiterate our expected growth opportunities. As we continue to focus on successfully executing our long-term plan to grow both organically and through strategic acquisitions, we are increasing our guidance for fiscal 2022 of annual revenue from $75 million to $80 million, which will include approximately eight months of Microlab revenue we expect to receive this fiscal year. And with this expected 40% increase in full year revenue versus fiscal year 2021, we continue to expect significant growth in our Adjusted EBITDA as our profitability increases throughout the year."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements with respect to future events, including the Company's ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses, improve operational efficiencies, and add innovative products and solutions to its portfolio, which are subject to a number of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: successfully integrating new products and teams, the duration and continuing impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the U.S. economy and the Company's customers; changes in the telecommunications industry; the Company's reliance on certain distributors and customers for a significant portion of anticipated revenues; the impact of existing and additional future tariffs imposed by U.S. and foreign nations; the Company's ability to execute on its new go-to-market strategies and channel models; its ability to expand its OEM relationships; its ability to continue to deliver newly designed and custom fiber optic and cabling products to principal customers; its ability to maintain strong margins and diversify its customer base; and its ability to address the changing needs of the market. Further discussion of these and other potential risk factors may be found in the Company's public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ( including its Annual Report on Form 10-K and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. All forward-looking statements are based upon information available to the Company on the date they are published, and the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or new information after the date of this release.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS). We believe these financial measures provide useful information to investors with which to analyze our operating trends and performance.

In computing Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS, we exclude stock-based compensation expense, which represents non-cash charges for the fair value of stock options and other non-cash awards granted to employees, acquisition related costs and expenses, and severance. For Adjusted EBITDA we also exclude depreciation, amortization, and provision for income taxes. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions, and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company's non-cash operating expenses, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash expense and non-recurring costs and expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between our core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing us with an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating our own core business operating results over different periods of time.

Our Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Our Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Net income, and non-GAAP EPS are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating or net income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. We do not consider these non-GAAP measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the last two tables at the end of this press release.
