Stocks in this article: MEMS

MEMSIC, Inc. (NasdaqGM: MEMS), a leading MEMS sensing solution provider, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

  • Revenues rose to $15.4 million from $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2010.
  • Gross margin was 32.5% compared to 40.6% in the 2010 quarter.
  • Operating expenses, including R&D expense of $2.1 million, totaled $6.6 million compared to $5.9 million in the 2010 quarter.
  • GAAP net loss in the 2011 second quarter was $1.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. This includes stock-based compensation of $0.4 million in 2011 and $0.3 million in 2010.
  • EBITDA in the 2011 second quarter was ($0.1) million, compared to ($1.1) million in the 2010 period.

“MEMSIC’s continued strong sales growth in the mobile phone and automotive markets demonstrates the success of our company’s ongoing focus on R&D,” commented Chairman, President and CEO Dr. Yang Zhao. “The high technical performance of our magnetic sensor has helped us win market share in the smartphone market. Although the pricing pressure that is typical in the mobile phone market has impacted our gross margin, we are striving for continuous cost improvement through continued innovation. We believe MEMSIC is well positioned to gain more customers and market share in this fast-growing market.”


  • Revenue is expected to be between $15 million and $16 million for the third quarter of 2011.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information

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 that 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.
