MEMSIC Announces Fourth-Quarter 2010 Results

Stocks in this article: MEMS

“Our strong R&D investment reflects our focus on building a continuous pipeline of new products that take advantage of our unique technology platform – combining MEMSIC’s core competency in ultra-low-cost sensor product design and manufacturing with the multi-sensor system integration capabilities we acquired from Crossbow. Our new multi-sensor and MCU integrated system products will be targeted at both the IC level for the consumer and mobile market and the module level for the high-end industrial, automotive, and general aviation markets. Our overall goal is to position MEMSIC as a world expert and leader in sensor solutions targeted to a wide range of markets and customer applications.”

The company’s fourth-quarter 2010 results include revenue from the products MEMSIC acquired from Crossbow Technology, Inc. in January 2010 and costs related to the addition of Crossbow engineering and sales staff. The 2010 and the 2009 fourth quarter results include $0.4 million and $0.3 million, respectively, in stock-based compensation.

Full-Year-2010 Financial Results

For the year ended December 31, 2010, MEMSIC reported revenue of $38.7 million, a 36% increase from 2009. Net loss for 2010 was $7.4 million on a GAAP basis, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to net income of $24,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, for 2009.

Outlook

For the first quarter of 2011, MEMSIC anticipates revenue in the range of $11.5 to $12.0 million. Net loss, including stock-based compensation of $0.4 million, is expected to be in the range of $0.06 to $0.08 per share. Average diluted share count for the 2011 first quarter is estimated to be 24 million.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, is a measure used by management to evaluate the company’s ongoing operations and as a general indicator of its operating cash flow (in conjunction with a cash flow statement which also includes, among other items, changes in working capital and the effect of non-cash charges). The Company defines EBITDA as net income, plus interest expense, net of interest income, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management believes EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the comparative evaluation of companies. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the company's presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements.
