Financial Summary:

  • Net sales were $46.8 million in the quarter, an increase of $6.8 million, or 17.0%, compared to fourth quarter 2013 net sales of $40.0 million.  The increase was primarily driven by increased TASER X26P smart weapon sales and cartridges which increased $3.8 million and $2.1 million, respectively, in the fourth quarter compared to fourth quarter of the prior year.  International sales were $9.9 million in the quarter, a decrease of $0.4 million compared to the prior year fourth quarter.  For the full year of 2014, sales were $164.5 million, an increase of 19.4% compared to the prior year.
  • TASER Weapons segment revenues grew $2.9 million year-over-year, or 7.7%, to $40.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • AXON segment revenues increased by $3.9 million, or 159.4%, to $6.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 in comparison to the prior year fourth quarter.
  • Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2014 was 58.6%, compared to 63.8% in the same period last year.  The decrease in gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2014 was driven by reserves taken for obsolete inventory primarily related to the end of production of the TASER X26 conducted electrical weapon (CEW) and excess inventory for components of the AXON camera line.  As a percentage of net sales, fourth quarter gross margins for the TASER Weapons segment were 66.2% and 66.8% for 2014 and 2013, respectively, while the same measure for these quarters for the AXON segment were 9.7% and 19.2%, respectively. Excluding the inventory reserves taken during the quarter, the Company experienced improvements in margins for the TASER Weapons and AXON segments individually, due primarily to higher average selling prices.
  • Total AXON and EVIDENCE.com bookings were $24.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of $19.3 million, or 371.6% compared to $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Sales, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses of $14.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased $2.8 million, from $11.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  As a percentage of revenue, SG&A increased to 30.8% in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to 29.1% in the prior year fourth quarter.  Compared to the prior year, personnel expenses increased $1.4 million as the Company has increased customer-facing positions as well as some administrative functions.  The International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference which occurred in the fourth quarter of 2014 versus the third quarter in the prior year caused further increased SG&A expenses in comparison to the prior year.  Increases were also seen in travel expense as the Company works to grow its international presence.  These increases were partially offset by lower liability insurance rates as well as lower expenses related to the defense of product and commercial litigation. Included in SG&A expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014, are approximately $0.4 million related to employee severance charges.  The Company expects higher SG&A expenses in 2015 as the Company continues to invest and grow the infrastructure necessary to achieve its initiatives of increasing revenues internationally and in the AXON segment.
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses of $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased $0.6 million when compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 driven by additional personnel expense related to AXON segment product development initiatives.  The Company continues to expect increased expenses in R&D in 2015 as it adds new functionality and new capabilities to the EVIDENCE.com platform and to AXON cameras and related hardware. 
  • Income from operations decreased $0.1 million, or 0.9%, to $8.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $9.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  
  • Adjusted EBITDA remained consistent at $13.8 million for the fourth quarters of 2014 and 2013. 
  • Income taxes in the fourth quarter were $3.7 million which included $0.5 million of deferred tax asset impairment for the Arizona R&D tax credits. 
  • Net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $5.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $5.4 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2013.   
  • In the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company generated $12.8 million in cash from operating activities.  Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $90.4 million at December 31, 2014, up from $63.4 million at December 31, 2013.  Included in these balances were $9.3 million and $12.0 million in long-term investments as of December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. 
  • During 2014, the Company completed $22.4 million of stock repurchases, purchasing approximately 1.7 million shares for an average cost of $12.99 per share.  There is approximately $7.6 million remaining on the current stock repurchase authorization.  Repurchases may be made from time to time on the open market.

"We continue to see positive breakthroughs in the adoption of law enforcement cloud technology as evidenced by this quarter's EVIDENCE.com and AXON bookings of $24.6 million, nearly quadrupling last year's fourth quarter results," stated Rick Smith, TASER's CEO.  "We continue to win competitive bids with the largest agencies in the world as we are the only scalable end-to-end solution in the market today.  Today we have 13 major cities that have chosen to deploy our EVIDENCE.com solution and body cameras.  Further, we are in active discussions or trials with an additional 28 major cities.  Beyond the AXON segment, we continue to drive consistent growth in the North American weapons business which grew 11.8% compared to the prior year fourth quarter as a result of our extensive weapon platform.

"In addition to increased investments in sales and marketing initiatives related to the international market and AXON, we intend to continue to invest in R&D initiatives related to adding new features and enhanced capabilities for existing video and weapons products," Smith continued.  "We remain focused on solidifying our leading position in this market going into the New Year and continue to optimize our business and branding.  As you may have noticed, we have renamed our EVIDENCE.com and Video segment to the AXON segment in order to succinctly capture our technology focus going forward. Our investments in R&D and sales and marketing, combined with TASER's market-leading products and excellent customer service, should drive long-term value for all stakeholders," concluded Smith.

To supplement the Company's financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, we are presenting the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow.  Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the Company's performance in comparison to prior periods, and as a measure of liquidity.  We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance, and when planning and forecasting our future periods.  A reconciliation of GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures is presented at the end of the release.

Although these non-GAAP financial measures are not consistent with GAAP, management believes investors will benefit by referring to these non-GAAP financial measures when assessing the Company's operating results, as well as when forecasting and analyzing future periods.  However, management recognizes that:

  • these non-GAAP financial measures are limited in their usefulness and should be considered only as a supplement to the Company's GAAP financial measures;
  • these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the Company's GAAP financial measures;
  • these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered to be superior to the Company's GAAP financial measures; and
  • these non-GAAP financial measures were not prepared in accordance with GAAP and investors should not assume that the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this earnings release were prepared under a comprehensive set of rules or principles.

Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may be unique to the Company, as they may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. As such, this presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not enhance the comparability of the Company's results to the results of other companies.

AXON and EVIDENCE.com bookings represent a statistical measure defined as the sales price of orders placed in the relevant time period.  Bookings are an indication of the activity the Company is seeing relative to AXON and EVIDENCE.com.  We consider bookings to be a statistical measure defined as the sales price of orders (not invoiced sales) placed in the relevant fiscal period, net of cancellations, regardless of when the products or services ultimately will be provided.  Some bookings might be invoiced in subsequent years.

Due to municipal government funding rules, certain of the future year amounts included in bookings are subject to budget appropriation or other contract cancellation clauses.  Although TASER has entered into contracts for the delivery of products and services in the future and anticipates the contracts will be completed, if agencies do not appropriate money in future year budgets or invoke a cancellation clause, revenue associated with these bookings will not ultimately be recognized, resulting in a future reduction to bookings.

For more information relative to our revenue recognition policies, please reference our SEC filings.
