Management Discussion

Jeffrey A. Hawthorne, president and chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, “The just completed second quarter continues the transformation arc of the Company.  We are extremely pleased with the success during 2016 on winning 19 program designs, and look forward to the revenues being recognized from that active order pipeline as shipments begin to ramp during the second half of 2016 and increase into 2017.”

 

“We continue to make improvements as we refine our manufacturing processes to effectively and efficiently meet the new demand we expect for our products,” continued Mr. Hawthorne. “In our discussions with existing and potential new customers around the world we continue to receive positive indications that metal mesh technology is gaining market share as it enables tablet and PC manufacturers to design products that are thinner, lighter, faster with highly responsive touchscreens and optimized advanced stylus capabilities. We are dedicated to continually enhancing our manufacturing capabilities at Colorado Springs to world-class status in order to meet the needs of our customers in the coming years.”

 

Second Quarter 2016 Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2016 revenues were $1.0 million compared to $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

 

Cost of revenues was $3.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The company is currently ramping up its production to prepare to deliver product at increasing volumes in its Colorado Springs production facility.  Cost of revenue includes certain non-cash charges, including amortization of certain prepaid licenses, stock-based compensation and depreciation of equipment as well as other non-cash charges, which totaled $1.2 million during the second quarter of 2016, and $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2015. Excluding these non-cash charges, adjusted non-GAAP cost of revenues was $2.7 million second quarter of 2016 and $2.4 million during the second quarter of 2015.

 

SG&A expense was approximately $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $3.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 as the Company reduced expenses in SG&A after the acquisition of the Atmel touch sensor division due to expense synergies realized.

Excluding these non-cash and non-recurring charges, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A was $1.4 million during the second quarter of 2016, and $1.6 million during the second quarter of 2015.

 

Research and development (“R&D”) expense during the three months ended June 30, 2016 was $1.0 million compared to $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. R&D includes non-cash charges for stock-based compensation which total $0.1 million during the first quarter of 2016, and $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2015. Excluding these non-cash charges, adjusted non-GAAP R&D was $0.9 million during the second quarter of 2016, and $1.2 million during the second quarter of 2015.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP metric (see Table A), for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $(4.2) million, or $(0.11) per basic and diluted share compared to adjusted EBITDA of $(3.8) million or $(0.28) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2015.

 

Net loss was $(6.1) million, or $(0.16) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2016, as compared to a net loss of $(15.7) million, or $(1.17) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

 

As of June 30, 2016, the Company maintained cash and cash equivalents of $11.3 million, working capital of $14.4 million and no convertible notes or debt on the balance sheet.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), the Company has provided the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release and the accompanying table:  non-GAAP cost of revenues, SG&A, R&D and adjusted EBITDA. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to analyze its operating performance and liquidity and believes they are useful to investors as a supplement to GAAP measures in analyzing, trending and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

 

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA (loss) to exclude discontinued operations, debt issuance cost amortization, gains or losses to changes in the warrant liability, accretion of the discount on convertible notes, interest expense on convertible note, depreciation, amortization of licenses, non-cash stock-based compensation, restricted stock issuance expense and severance. The Company believes that the use of adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and other users of its financial statements in evaluating the Company’s operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. Management does not place undue reliance on adjusted EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. For reconciliation under GAAP to the Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA see Table A that is included in the tables accompanying this release.
