Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Three Months Ended May 2, 2020 vs. Three Months Ended May 4, 2019
  • Revenue for the first quarter of the current year was $30.9 million, representing a 14.5% decrease compared to the previous year first quarter revenue of $36.2 million. Revenue through domestic channels for the first quarter of the current year was $19.8 million, a decrease of 9.7% from the prior year’s first quarter. International revenue for the first quarter of the current year was $11.1 million, representing 36.0% of our first quarter revenue and reflects a 21.6% decrease from the previous year first quarter, primarily as a result of lower demand by a few customers in Asia in both the Product Identification and T&M segments. Current year first quarter international revenue includes an unfavorable foreign exchange rate impact of $0.2 million.
  • Hardware revenue in the current quarter was $8.9 million, a 31.0% decrease compared to the prior year first quarter revenue of $12.9 million. The current quarter decrease can be attributed to both segments, as hardware revenue decreased 33.6% in the T&M segment and 24.3% in the PI segment compared to the prior year. The current quarter decrease in hardware revenue in the T&M segment is primarily due to the decline in aerospace printer sales related to the Honeywell product lines. Also contributing to the current year first quarter revenue decline in the T&M segment, was the decrease in sales of other aerospace products, as well as a decrease in sales of data acquisition recorders. These declines are a result of the continued grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX, as well as the dramatic drop in air travel related to theCOVID-19 pandemic. Decreases in both QuickLabel and Trojan Label printer sales in the PI segment, which were impacted by travel and trade show restrictions, also contributed to the overall decline in hardware as sales from our new Trojan Three OPX printer were more than offset by declines in sales of QuickLabel’sQL-120,QL-300 andQL-800 and Trojan Label’sT2-Compact family of printers.
