Immersion's CEO Presents At 14th Annual Needham Growth Conference (Transcript)

Just focusing alone on touchscreen and mobile devices, you can see here we are penetrating in the 20% to 30% right now, obviously a lot of room for growth in the MOTIV mobility space and another markets. In 2010, we were in about 112 million phones, I believe in 2011 we’ll be in somewhere in the neighborhood about a 150 plus million phones.

Looking at our licensing model, you can see here the primary revenue for us is the royalty and licensing, we are about 88% year-to-date from this space, these are our partners, who ship products and pay us per unit royalties. In addition, we have a small amount of product sales, mostly components and kits for development purposes, as well as one medical product about 8% and then the balance is from non-recurring engineering.

If you look at the revenue from a vertical standpoint, the largest vertical for us is mobility, about almost half of our revenue comes from the mobility space, 30% comes from gaming, 15% from the medical and automotive is about 5%.

These are the customers, as well as our partners, so if you along the left hand side, you see our five primary verticals and you see our licensees in each of these verticals. In the mobility space, primarily Samsung, LG, Nokia, happy to say that at CES this week Pantech announced to launch a new tablet using our high-definition solution.

On the gaming set of space we work with Logitech, Microsoft and Sony. In the automotive space we work directly with Automotive OEMs, as well as the tier suppliers. In the medical space, robotic controls, medical simulation systems from people like MAKO, Laerdal CAE. And then lastly, commercial and consumer products sold by Samsung, Best Buy, Toshiba and host of other customers.

If you look on the right hand side, these are our partners and as a small licensing company of about a 100 people as I mentioned, we work closely with semiconductor companies to utilize our technology, they put our technology on to their touch controller chips and they sell those chips and pay us royalties, and they include Texas Instrument's, Cypress, Atmel.
