"Double digit ARR growth propelled Digi to reach a milestone of ARR exceeding quarterly revenue for the first time," said Ron Konezny, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Lowered inventory levels combined with a reduction in debt significantly improved our balance sheet. We are committed to achieving $200 million of ARR and $200 million of adjusted EBITDA within the next five years."


  • We retired the term loan existing under our prior credit facility in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, incurring a one-time expense of $10 million for the write-off of debt issuance costs. In addition, we made payments towards our new revolving credit facility, reducing our gross outstanding debt to $196 million at quarter end and debt net of cash and cash equivalents to $163 million.
  • We had $5.7 million of interest expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, compared to $6.0 million a year ago. The decrease was driven by reduction of our effective interest rate and decreased debt outstanding.
  • Cash flow from operations was $19 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, compared to $3 million a year ago, driven primarily by year over year changes in inventory.
  • Net inventory ended the quarter at $68 million, compared to $74 million at September 30, 2023. This represents a $13 million reduction from the balance a year ago, reflecting continued efforts to manage inventory levels.


IoT 产品与服务

The segment's first fiscal quarter 2024 revenue of $82 million decreased 3% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. This decrease was driven by decreases in sales volume in Console Server and Cellular products, partially offset by growth in OEM products. ARR as of the end of the first fiscal quarter was $23 million, an increase of 64% from the prior fiscal year. This increase primarily was due to growth in the subscription base for Console Server services, complemented by growth in other business lines. Gross profit margin decreased 110 basis points to 53.5% of revenue for the first fiscal quarter of 2024, driven primarily by decreased volume in Console Server, partially offset by increased volume and higher margin mix in OEM. Operating income was $10 million, a decrease of 18%, primarily due to the decrease in revenue.

IoT 解决方案

The segment's first fiscal quarter 2024 revenue of $24 million decreased 4% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. This decrease was a result of decreased sales of Ventus offerings, partially offset by volume growth in SmartSense. ARR as of the end of the first fiscal quarter was $85 million, an increase of 4% from the prior fiscal year primarily driven by growth in SmartSense. Increased revenue and expanding margins in SmartSense drove a 950 basis points gross margin increase to 71.6% in the first fiscal quarter of 2024. Operating income was $1.8 million, compared to an operating loss of $0.7 million a year ago.


We intend to continue to deleverage the company while managing inventory appropriately as our supply chain continues to normalize. Our inventory position remains elevated, but we believe this investment will deliver working capital benefits for Digi in future quarters.

Acquisitions remain a top capital priority for Digi. We will be disciplined in our approach and act when we believe an opportunity is appropriate to execute in the context of prevailing market conditions. We are evolving and monitoring our acquisition pipeline, and we intend to focus more on scale and ARR.

Second Fiscal Quarter 2024 and Full-Year 2024 Guidance

Digi remains steadfast in achieving our new long term strategic goals of doubling ARR and Adjusted EBITDA to $200 million within the next five years. Digi’s resilient execution in a large and growing Industrial Internet of Things market has stayed consistent. Our outlook for fiscal 2024 remains unchanged, with our ARR and Adjusted EBITDA growing 5% and our revenue projects to be flat year over year.

For the second fiscal quarter, revenues are estimated to be $105 million to $109 million. Adjusted EBITDA is estimated to be between $22.5 million and $24.5 million. Adjusted net income per share is anticipated to be between $0.45 and $0.49 per diluted share, assuming a weighted average diluted share count of 37.7 million shares.

We provide guidance or longer-term targets for Adjusted net income per share as well as Adjusted EBITDA targets on a non-GAAP basis. We do not reconcile these items to their most similar U.S. GAAP measure as it is difficult to predict without unreasonable efforts numerous items that include but are not limited to the impact of foreign exchange translation, restructuring, interest and certain tax related events. Given the uncertainty, any of these items could have a significant impact on U.S. GAAP results.

Among other items, these statements relate to expectations of the business environment in which Digi operates, projections of future performance, inventory levels, perceived marketplace opportunities, interest expense and statements regarding our mission and vision. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Among others, these include risks related to ongoing and varying inflationary and deflationary pressures around the world and the monetary policies of governments globally as well as present concerns about a potential recession, the ability of companies like us to operate a global business in such conditions as well as negative effects on product demand and the financial solvency of customers and suppliers in such conditions, risks related to ongoing supply chain challenges that continue to impact businesses globally, risks related to cybersecurity, risks arising from the present wars in Ukraine and the Middle East, the highly competitive market in which our company operates, rapid changes in technologies that may displace products sold by us, declining prices of networking products, our reliance on distributors and other third parties to sell our products, the potential for significant purchase orders to be canceled or changed, delays in product development efforts, uncertainty in user acceptance of our products, the ability to integrate our products and services with those of other parties in a commercially accepted manner, potential liabilities that can arise if any of our products have design or manufacturing defects, our ability to integrate and realize the expected benefits of acquisitions, our ability to defend or settle satisfactorily any litigation, the impact of natural disasters and other events beyond our control that could negatively impact our supply chain and customers, potential unintended consequences associated with restructuring, reorganizations or other similar business initiatives that may impact our ability to retain important employees or otherwise impact our operations in unintended and adverse ways, and changes in our level of revenue or profitability which can fluctuate for many reasons beyond our control. These and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions identified from time to time in our filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including without limitation, those set forth in Item 1A, Risk Factors, of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2023, subsequent filings on Form 10-Q and other filings, could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf.

我们知道,非美国通用会计准则的使用存在重大限制。在分析财务业绩时,非美国通用会计准则(Non-GAAP)指标不能替代净收入等美国通用会计准则(GAAP)指标。这些指标的披露并不反映 Digi 实际确认的所有费用和收益。这些非美国通用会计准则(Non-GAAP)衡量标准不符合公认会计原则,也不能替代按照公认会计原则编制的衡量标准,可能与其他公司使用的非美国通用会计准则(Non-GAAP)衡量标准或我们在以前的报告中提出的衡量标准不同。此外,这些非美国通用会计准则衡量标准并非基于任何一套全面的会计规则或原则。我们认为,非美国通用会计准则衡量标准有其局限性,因为它们不能反映按照美国通用会计准则确定的与我们的运营结果相关的所有金额。我们认为,这些指标只能与相应的公认会计准则指标一起用于评估我们的运营结果。此外,调整后 EBITDA 并不反映我们的现金支出、更换折旧资产和摊销资产的现金需求,也不反映我们营运资金需求的变化或现金需求。

我们认为,分别提供历史净利润和调整后净利润以及调整后摊薄后每股净利润,不包括税收准备金转回、离散税收优惠、重组费用及转回、无形资产摊销、股票薪酬、其他营业外收入/支出、或有对价公允价值变动、与收购相关的费用以及与收购相关的利息支出等项目,可以让投资者将业绩与不包括这些项目的前期进行比较。管理层使用上述非美国通用会计准则衡量标准来监控和评估持续经营业绩和趋势,并了解我们的比较经营业绩。此外,我们的某些股东表示希望看到不包含这些事项影响的财务业绩指标,这些事项虽然重要,但对我们的核心业务运营并不重要。管理层认为,调整后息税折旧摊销前利润(定义为息税折旧摊销前利润,根据股票薪酬费用、收购相关费用、重组费用和转回以及或有对价公允价值变动进行调整)有助于投资者评估我们的核心经营业绩和财务表现,因为它排除了简明合并运营报表中反映的重大非现金或非经常性项目。我们认为,将调整后 EBITDA 按收入百分比列报非常有用,因为它提供了一种可靠、一致的方法来衡量我们每年的业绩,并将我们的业绩与其他公司的业绩进行对比评估。我们相信这一信息有助于比较经营业绩和公司业绩,其中不包括我们的资本结构和资产收购方法的影响。
