12:40 EDTTPCTEL lowers FY15 revenue to $124M-$130M from $133M-$138M, two estimates $130M
Following its March 5 acquisition of Nexgen Wireless, PCTEL (PCTI) reported in a regulatory filing earlier that on April 7, Samsung Electronics America, a Samsung (SSNLF) subsidiary, provided Nexgen and PCTEL with a notice of Samsung’s election to terminate, effective April 30, the contractor services agreement between Samsung and Nexgen. Nexgen furnishes services to Samsung under the CSA including Meridian software-based services and contract personnel. The termination applies to the CSA only and will have no effect on other agreements between Samsung and Nexgen or PCTEL. The company continues to forecast 15%-18% revenue growth over FY14 and views the Nexgen acquisition as accretive to earnings in FY15. The company has revised its overall revenue forecast for FY15 in light of reduced business with Samsung, the reduction in capital spending by AT&T (T), and a decline in new network infrastructure investment in the oil and gas market. The company has revised revenue guidance from $133M-$138M to $124M-$130M. Finally, the company and Nexgen have signed a term sheet calling for a material reduction of the total consideration paid or payable by PCTEL for the Nexgen assets, and a material reduction of the equity compensation for which John Thakkar, the founder and president of Nexgen, will be eligible. These reductions seek to align the asset acquisition costs with the revised revenue and EBITDA estimates.
