Image Sensing Systems Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISNS), announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008.


Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 was $1.2 million ($0.29 per fully diluted share) compared to $1.3 million ($0.34 per fully diluted share) for the same period in 2007. Net income for the first nine months of 2008 was $3.4 million ($0.86 per diluted share) compared to $2.6 million ($0.66 per diluted share) for the same period in 2007.

Revenue for the third quarter was $6.1 million compared to $4.2 million for the same period a year ago, while revenue for the first nine months of 2008 was $18.7 million compared to $9.9 million for the same period a year ago. Revenue from royalties increased 23% to $3.7 million from $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2007 and 31% to $10.0 million from $7.6 million in the first nine months of 2007, reflecting the continued success of our North American distributor, Econolite Control Products, Inc. (ECPI), in selling Autoscope(R) products in the United States and Canada. North American sales, which are sales of RTMS(R) in North America, were $920,000 for the third quarter and $4.5 million for the first nine months of 2008. International sales, which include both Autoscope and RTMS sales outside of North America, were $1.4 million in the third quarter, a 24% increase over $1.1 million in the same period in 2007, and $4.2 million in the first nine months, an 89% increase over $2.2 million in the same period of 2007. Sales of RTMS world- wide for the quarter were $1.2 million. We acquired the RTMS family of products in December 2007.

On a non-GAAP basis for the third quarter, excluding intangible asset amortization and withdrawn offering expenses, each net of tax, net income was $1.4 million ($0.36 per fully diluted share) and operating income was $2.1 million. On a non-GAAP basis for the first nine months, net income increased 55% to $4.0 million ($0.99 per fully diluted share) and operating income increased 85% to $5.7 million as compared to the same period of 2007.

Ken Aubrey, CEO, said, "We noted continued increasing demand for our products in the quarter with the exception of our North American RTMS business. We believe the RTMS results underperformed due to a number of disparate reasons. Again, we believe the integration of the EIS asset purchase and final Terra transition matters are progressing on schedule and are beginning to show signs of bearing fruit. We're also advancing a number of product initiatives, including video/radar hybrid solutions, that are exciting."

Follow-on Offering Update

Given our recent share price range, unfavorable market conditions and the lack of need for increased working capital at present, we believe that proceeding with an offering at this time is not in the best interests of our shareholders and therefore, we have decided to withdraw the follow-on offering. As such, we have expensed offering costs incurred of $221,000 ($146,000 net of tax or $0.04 per share) in the third quarter of 2008. The costs are included in general and administrative expense in the income statement.

Auction Rate Security Update

We hold $5.4 million in face value of student loan backed auction rate securities (ARS), substantially all of which are Federal government backed. The ARS were purchased through, and are still held in, accounts at UBS and Credit Suisse. Recently, both UBS and Credit Suisse announced settlements with governmental authorities under which the banks have agreed to repurchase our ARS at face value (par) by January 2009. This is a positive development and we are optimistic about the outcome. However, because of the uncertainty of collection under the agreements, we have continued to account for the ARS as we have the previous two quarters with a temporary impairment reflected.

Our updated analysis of the ARS fair value indicates there is a temporary impairment of $449,000 ($296,000 net of tax). The ARS are classified as long- term assets at September 30, 2008. This unrealized loss does not flow through our income statement; rather it is recorded directly to shareholders' equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income/loss. Notwithstanding the potential settlements, there is uncertainty in the ARS market and, should circumstances change, we may deem the impairment to be other than temporary or otherwise adjust our analysis.

Non-GAAP Information

We provide certain non-GAAP financial information as supplemental information to GAAP amounts. This non-GAAP information excludes the impact, net of tax, of amortizing the intangible assets from the EIS asset purchase and excludes the costs incurred in conjunction with our withdrawn follow-on offering that were expensed in the quarter ended September 30, 2008. Management believes that this presentation facilitates the comparison of our current operating results to historical operating results. Management uses this non-GAAP information to evaluate short-term and long-term operating trends in our core operations. Non-GAAP information is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for or an alternative to GAAP financial measures and may not be computed the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies.
