Fourth Quarter 2021
- Q4 Revenue was $16.5MM, pressured by industry-wide supply chain issues, which the Company anticipates continuing into 1H 2022.
- Solid booking activity continued however resulting in a backlog expansion to $31.2MM. The Company is working closely with its equipment manufacturer partners to manage through these supply constraints.
- Q4 Adjusted EBITDA was $0.3MM for the fourth quarter 2021, compared with $1.3MM for the fourth quarter of 2020.
“We continue to execute the strategic growth plan we put in place several years ago,” commented CEO Steve Smith. “That plan is focused on the growth of what we call “mobility-first services,” and on the expansion of our served geographic coverage. We’re achieving those goals through both the organic build-out of our business and by select acquisitions.
Smith continued, “While the sale of enterprise hardware such as mobile computers, bar code and RFID scanners, and printers remains a solid core of our business, the provision of associated services, including especially managed operational services, with its recurring revenue streams, is the focus of our strategic intent. The nearly 18% growth in these services in 2021 marks our progress. We plan for services to contribute still larger proportions of our growth going forward, yielding margin expansion, increased forward revenue visibility, and the foundation for robust enterprise value growth.”
“The Company also continues to execute on its strategy to make select strategic acquisitions that add technical competencies, operational capacity, and geographic coverage. The full integration of one such acquisition from late 2020, ExtenData, a Rocky Mountains-focused regional leader in solutions and services design and delivery, was completed in 2021. In January 2022, we also acquired Advanced Mobile Group to expand DecisionPoint’s mobility-first enterprise solutions and service offerings and grow its capabilities in the mid-Atlantic region. Advanced Mobile Group is a regional leader providing services, hardware, software, integration, and wireless networking solutions, with deep experience in warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, mobile workforce automation, retailing, and healthcare segments, and 600 customers.”
CEO Smith concluded, “2021 was another very solid year for DecisionPoint. We grew in all key measures relative to 2020, a tough compare with its outsized singular top line event, and did so overcoming industry headwinds caused by global supply chain constraints. I’m confident that our plans and proven execution capacity will yield still greater successes for our customers and growth for DecisionPoint in 2022 and beyond.”
