e-Gov:

  • In April 2018, signed a new contract worth approximately $4 million in value with an existing national government customer in Africa. Built around SuperCom's Magna platform, the deployment will allow for quick expansion of additional e-Gov modules, which would lead to potential increases in the overall contract size. The majority of the new contract is expected to be recognized over the next two years and will grow SuperCom's steady-state recurring revenues.
  • In early 2018, announced the company is developing various cryptocurrency capabilities for its SuperPay secure mobile money suite. Upon completion, SuperPay users will be able to purchase and sell Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies through the suite.

IoT and Connectivity:

  • In October 2017, began the deployment of PureSecurity Electronic Monitoring (EM) Suite for GPS and home detention offender tracking and monitoring in Tennessee. SuperCom has already received initial orders under the agreement as well as follow-on orders, which should continue to ramp up over time. The project is billed at a per-unit daily rate and is already generating steady-state recurring revenues.
  • In November 2017, announced the deployment of PureSecurity EM Suite in Atlanta, Georgia. The project has already received initial and follow-on orders and also began generating steady-state recurring revenues before year end 2017.
  • In November 2017, selected by the national government of Bulgaria to deploy PureSecurity EM Suite. The comprehensive nationwide program is expected to initially monitor 250 enrollees simultaneously.
  • In December 2017, secured a contract to provide PureSecurity EM Suite in Western Kentucky. SuperCom has already completed the initial deployment and began generating steady-state recurring revenue.
  • In January 2018, secured an additional contract to provide PureSecurity EM Suite in Idaho.
  • In March 2018, secured an additional contract to provide PureSecurity EM Suite in South Carolina.
  • In April 2018, secured an additional contract to provide PureSecurity EM Suite in eastern Texas to an established service provider.
  • In April 2018, awarded a $7 million project with the national government of Sweden to deploy PureSecurity EM Suite.
  • Continued sales of Alvarion Wi-Fi technology in the U.S. and globally, as well as gaining traction securing new purchase orders with distributors and integrators, which have expanded its multi-million-dollar pipeline.

Cyber Security:

  • Continued progress in the development of new advanced cyber security products, adding more capabilities, including anti-malware to be incorporated into the Safend cyber security platform. Also began the process of piloting features to new customers in the U.S. and Europe.
  • Safend concluded 2017 with a greater than 90% retention rate in the U.S., driven by sustained customer satisfaction and continued technological improvements.

Management Commentary

"2017 was a banner year for SuperCom, highlighted by a dramatic transformation in our financial performance as well as growth across all of our strategic business segments and major geographic markets globally," said Arie Trabelsi, President and CEO of SuperCom. "Thanks to the successful integration efforts of the previous year's acquisitions, we were able to generate record annual revenue, while also optimizing our costs in certain key areas of our business leading to a greater than 400% increase in gross profit. In the fourth quarter specifically, we grew our revenue 93% over the prior year, while also significantly reducing our expenses as a percentage of total revenue across the board."

"Operationally, we have continued to execute on our growth strategy across all our business segments. In our e-Gov division, we secured an eight-year contract with Iceland for an ePassport and National ID Card system back in September. And more recently, we signed a new contract with an existing national government customer in Africa, representing approximately $4 million in value and expected to increase our steady-state recurring revenue. This contract is in addition to other recent large-scale e-Gov deployments in Africa, which have already transitioned to steady-state and are generating recurring revenue that contributed to our improved performance. Within our IoT division, we continue to win new business in the U.S. and globally. In fact, we have announced additional wins in six locations in the last few months alone and have 11 EM deployments currently ongoing globally. And in our Cyber Security division, we ended the year with a greater than 90% retention rate in the U.S., thanks to both sustained customer satisfaction as well as continued technological improvements." 

"Moving forward, we are increasingly confident in our prospects for the current year and beyond. As we have now been able to demonstrate consistently over the course of a full year, placing an emphasis on certain key areas within our business can lead to long-term revenue expansion and a solid foundation to reliably and successfully scale our operations. Additionally, we are focused on growing our margins to greater levels by winning new business and transitioning our various ongoing deployments into consistent steady-state recurring revenue generators. In all, our ultimate goal continues to be the creation of sustainable and profitable growth and value for our shareholders for the many years ahead."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this release of operating results also contains non-GAAP financial measures, which SuperCom believes are the principal indicators of the operating and financial performance of its business. Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provided are useful to investors' understanding and assessment of the Company's on-going core operations and prospects for the future, as the charges eliminated are not part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as a basis for strategic decisions, forecasting future results and evaluating the Company's current performance. However, such measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the schedules attached to this release.
