IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CalAmp (Nasdaq: CAMP), a connected intelligence company helping businesses and people track, monitor and recover vital assets with real-time visibility and insights, today provided a business update and outlook on supply chain constraints as well as the Company's progress transitioning telematics device customers to software subscription-based contracts.
Jeff Gardner, CalAmp's president and chief executive officer, commented, "During our last quarter conference call on September 23, 2021, we indicated that we expected to ship approximately 20% more devices in the back half of our fiscal year than in the first half based on anticipated allocations from our key component suppliers. However, the supply chain shortages for these components have become more pronounced than originally anticipated, thereby lowering our shipment expectations for the second half. We now expect total revenues for the fiscal 2022 third quarter ending November 30, 2021 to decline sequentially by approximately 10% due to reduced shipments in telematics products combined with the anticipated lower revenues in our software and subscription services business as a result of the completion of a large retrofit project last quarter. Although supply chain challenges are impacting the industry and our business in the short-term, customer demand remains strong and we continue to make notable progress transitioning several larger telematics device customers to a subscription-based model. Our focus remains on enhancing the long-term value of our business by converting a higher percentage of our telematics device revenue to software subscription arrangements, which should provide increased visibility and predictability in our future results."
CalAmp will be announcing its fiscal 2022 third quarter financial results on Tuesday, December 21, 2021 and hosting a conference call and webcast, with more dial-in details forthcoming in a future release.
