08:35 EDTELONEchelon now sees Q2 EPS (7c)-(4c) vs. previous view of (8c)-(5c)
Consensus is (6c). For Q2 2015, the lease termination agreement results in a revised estimated non-GAAP loss of ($0.04) to ($0.07) per share versus the previous guidance of ($0.05) to ($0.08). On a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2015, the lease termination results in a revised estimated loss of ($0.05) to ($0.08) per share versus the previous guidance of ($0.07) to ($0.10). Once the company moves to a new, right-sized headquarters in Q1 2016, both GAAP and non-GAAP savings are estimated to improve by approximately $800,000 per quarter. Among other things, as a result of the lease termination, the net book value of the buildings will be reduced to approximately $5.0 million, which will then be amortized over the remainder of 2015 in conjunction with the new short-term lease. In addition, for GAAP purposes, the company will record a one-time benefit in the second quarter associated with the termination of the lease of approximately $1.5 million.
08:34 EDTELONEchelon retires $21.4M of long term facilities lease obligations
Echelon Corporation announced that it has reached an agreement with the landlord of its 150,000 square foot San Jose, CA headquarters related to the long-term leases for office space the company no longer requires. Under the terms of the agreement, the existing leases, which run through 2020, have been terminated and replaced with a short-term lease for a smaller portion of the facility that will run through the remainder of 2015. In return for this early termination, the company has agreed to a one-time up front cash payment of $10M and lease payments for the balance of 2015 totaling $900,000. This will eliminate the remaining lease obligation payments of $21.4M. As a result of this transaction, net cash on the balance sheet will increase by approximately $5.5 million. On a non-GAAP basis, the company estimates facilities related savings will be between $400,000 and $600,000 per quarter for the balance of 2015. On a GAAP basis, the company anticipates that the transaction will result in additional depreciation expense of approximately $1.5M per quarter through the end of 2015 as the remaining building assets are amortized off its balance sheet.
