Pixelworks Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 19, 2012-- 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, 2012.

Second quarter 2012 revenue was $15.5 million, compared to $14.3 million reported in the prior quarter and $15.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. The 8.4% sequential increase in revenue was driven by improvement in demand for the Company’s products sold in the digital projection and advanced TV markets. Second quarter revenue also included higher licensing revenue compared to the previous quarter.

On a GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2012 was 49.3%, compared to 54.5% in the first quarter and 47.3% in the second quarter of 2011. The sequential decline in gross profit was primarily driven by a shift in product mix within both the digital projector and advanced TV end markets, partially offset by higher licensing revenue recognized during the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter GAAP operating expenses were $8.5 million, compared to $9.1 million in the previous quarter and $9.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. For the second quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a GAAP net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per share, in the first quarter and a GAAP net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.13 per share, in the second quarter of 2011.

On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter gross profit margin was 50.6%, compared to 55.7% in the first quarter and 48.3% in the second quarter of 2011. Second quarter operating expenses on a non-GAAP basis were $8.1 million, compared to $8.6 million in the prior quarter and $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, net loss during the second quarter was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share, in the first quarter and a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.09 per share, in the second quarter of 2011.

“Revenue for the quarter came in at the high end of our guidance range driven by the ramping of our new Topaz family of products for the projector market and significant year over year increase in sales of our advanced TV solutions,” said Bruce Walicek, President and CEO of Pixelworks. “During the quarter Pixelworks continued to demonstrate its display technology leadership through key engagements with major customers and partners.”

The Company will discuss the details of its business outlook for the third quarter of 2012 during its conference call scheduled for today, July 19, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release makes reference to non-GAAP gross profit margins, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share which excludes 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 loss and adjusted EBITDA which Pixelworks defines as GAAP net income (loss) 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.
