For the three-month period ended December 31, 2009, revenues were $2.9 million, compared to $7.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2008. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $4.8 million, or ($0.43) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $1.2 million, or ($0.11) per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2008. The fourth quarter loss was impacted by $1.3 million in acquisition costs, a charge of $621,000 for inventory obsolescence, and $540,000 in stock-based compensation. Excluding these expenses, non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $2.3 million, or ($0.21) per basic and diluted share. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2009 was 28%. Excluding the inventory reserve charge, gross margin for the period was 50%.

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009, were $10.3 million, compared to $27.0 million for 2008, and net loss for 2009 was $13.2 million, or ($1.20) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $4.2 million, or ($0.38) per basic and diluted share, for 2008. Excluding the aforementioned acquisition costs, inventory reserve charge, and $2.2 million in stock-based compensation, non-GAAP net loss for the year was $9.1 million, or ($0.83) per basic and diluted share. Gross margin for the year was 46%. Excluding the inventory reserve charge, gross margin for 2009 was 52%.

Jeffrey Jagid, I.D. Systems’ chairman and CEO, said, “Our short term results did not meet our goals, as the global recession impacted technology spending across industrial markets. However, we established over 20 new customers in 2009, including global leaders in the automotive, aviation, food, and consumer packaged goods industries. This expansion of our customer base is a continuing testament to the economic value of our wireless technology and reflects our strategy of diversifying sources of revenue and transitioning initial system deployments into enterprise-scale implementations to drive long-term growth.

“I.D. Systems also achieved a significant milestone in the rental fleet management market in 2009, executing a multi-year contract with a leading U.S. rental car company to deploy our latest rental fleet management solutions in 2010.

“In addition,” continued Mr. Jagid, “we made two strategic acquisitions, most notably the Asset Intelligence business unit of General Electric, as announced in January, 2010. This is a transformational event for I.D. Systems, positioning us to become a preeminent provider of wireless technology for managing high-value corporate assets. Integrating Asset Intelligence into our business expands our range of asset tracking solutions, provides a recurring revenue stream that should help reduce quarterly revenue volatility, gives us immediate access to new customers, and enables operational efficiencies that should reduce our consolidated expenses by an estimated $8 million in 2010. With these revenue and cost synergies, we expect I.D. Systems to continue achieving strong gross margins and achieve profitability in 2011.

“Our balance sheet remains strong,” concluded Mr. Jagid. “As of December 31, 2009, before we closed on the acquisition of Asset Intelligence, I.D. Systems had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $48.5 million, excluding the Company’s $11.6 million line of credit, and more than $47 million of working capital.”

While maintaining investments in growth opportunities, I.D. Systems’ management continued to focus on cost controls in 2009.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2009, were $4.9 million and $16.5 million, respectively, which included $1.3 million in acquisition costs. Excluding acquisition and stock-based compensation costs, SG&A expenses were $3.2 million for the quarter and $13.5 million for the year, 6% lower than the comparable figure for the year ended December 31, 2008.

Research and development (R&D) expenditures for the three months ended December 31, 2009, were $582,000. R&D expenses for the year were $2.6 million, 10% lower than the comparable figure in 2008.

Investor Conference Call
I.D. Systems will host a conference call for investors and analysts at 4:45 pm Eastern Standard Time on March 10, 2010. Jeffrey Jagid, I.D. Systems’ chairman and CEO, will lead a discussion on the year’s results and highlights. After opening remarks, there will be a question and answer period.
