Luna Innovations Reports Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ:LUNA), a company focusing on sensing, instrumentation and nanotechnology, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010.

As compared to the same quarter last year, total revenue decreased by 3%, from $8.9 million in the third quarter of 2009 to $8.6 million in the third quarter of 2010. Revenue in the company’s product and license segment improved by 49%, from $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2009 to $3.6 million in the third quarter of 2010. Technology development revenues decreased by 23% to $5.0 million for the third quarter of 2010 from $6.5 million for the third quarter of 2009.

Operating expenses improved by $1.7 million, or 31%, primarily due to the non-recurring litigation and reorganization costs in 2009 and to the company’s ongoing expense savings initiatives. The company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $0.5 million, or $0.04 per common share, for the third quarter of 2010, as compared to a net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.18 per common share for the third quarter of 2009.

Adjusted EBITDA less litigation- and reorganization-related items improved to $0.9 million for the third quarter of 2010, as compared to $0.8 million for the third quarter of 2009. Adjusted EBITDA reflects the company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, warrant expense, and non-cash charges for impairment of intangible assets. In addition, the company achieved positive cash flow for the quarter of $0.9 million.

Dale Messick, Interim President and Chief Operating Officer, provided this overview of Luna’s results: “We are extremely pleased to report positive cash flow for the quarter along with a nearly 50% growth in our product and license revenues. As we have anticipated, with the elimination of last year’s litigation and Chapter 11 reorganization expenses from our quarterly results, we have realized significant improvement in our bottom line and in our cash flow.”
