Pixelworks Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jul 21, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ:PXLW), an innovative provider of powerful video and pixel processing technology, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Second Quarter 2011 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 6.7% sequentially to $15.7 million
  • Achieved positive cash flow from operations
  • New product revenue was up 7.0% sequentially and 67.1% year over year
  • Began sampling new MotionEngine(R) Video Processor the PA136
  • Introduced the PW878 Next-Generation Digital Projection SoC Device
  • Retired all outstanding convertible debentures and completed equity offering

Second quarter 2011 revenue was $15.7 million, an increase of 6.7% sequentially from $14.7 million in the first quarter of 2011, primarily due to higher sales of new products and a rebound in digital projection. Quarterly revenue decreased 15.9% from $18.7 million in the second quarter of 2010 as the digital projection market emerged from a world-wide inventory correction.

On a GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2011 was 47.3%, up from 44.7% in the first quarter of 2011 and 46.3% in the second quarter of 2010. Second quarter 2011 GAAP operating expenses were $9.2 million, compared with $9.8 million in the previous quarter and $9.5 million in the second quarter of 2010. The Company recorded GAAP net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.13 per share, in the second quarter of 2011 compared to GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.11 per share, in the first quarter of 2011 and GAAP net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.08 per share, in the second quarter of 2010. GAAP net loss per share in the second quarter and first quarters of 2011 were calculated using 15.8 million and 13.6 million diluted shares, respectively.

On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2011 gross profit margin was 48.3%, up from 45.5% in the first quarter of 2011 and down slightly from 49.0% in the second quarter of 2010, primarily as a result of product mix. Second quarter 2011 operating expenses on a non-GAAP basis were $8.7 million, compared to non-GAAP operating expenses of $9.4 million in the previous quarter and $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2010. On a non-GAAP basis, net loss in the second quarter of 2011 was $1.4 million, or $0.09 per share, compared with non-GAAP net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.20 per share, in the first quarter of 2011 and non-GAAP net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.03 per share, in the second quarter of 2010. Non-GAAP net loss per share in the second quarter and first quarters of 2011 were calculated using 15.8 million and 13.6 million diluted shares, respectively.

"The second quarter marked several important milestones as we completed a multi-year process to improve our balance sheet with the retirement of all outstanding long-term debt and the completion of an equity offering," said Bruce Walicek, President and CEO of Pixelworks. "Notably, we launched important new products in our projector and advanced TV product lines, which both experienced significant design win traction at top tier customers."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release makes reference to non-GAAP gross profit margins, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share which exclude restructuring charges, amortization of acquired developed technology, stock-based compensation expense, gain on sale of patents, gain on the sale of marketable securities and additional amortization of a non-cancelable prepaid royalty, all of which are required under GAAP.The press release also reconciles GAAP net income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA which Pixelworks defines as GAAP net income before interest expense and other, net, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, as well as the specific items listed above. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures provide a meaningful perspective on the Company's core operating results and underlying cash flow dynamics, but cautions investors to consider these measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, its consolidated financial results as presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included in this earnings release which is available in the investor relations section of the Company's website.
