SemiLEDs Reports Third Quarter Of Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Results

SemiLEDs Corporation (NASDAQ: LEDS), “SemiLEDs” or the “Company,” a developer and manufacturer of LED chips and LED components, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, ended May 31, 2012. Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $9.2 million, a 64% increase compared to $5.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

“While we have been prudent in our spending this past year, we have continued to invest in research and development. We are excited about the prospects for our recently announced Enhanced Vertical (EV) LED product series. These products, which we are introducing globally, increase our addressable market and are the foundation for future revenue growth. We have already received interest and have some customers that have begun the evaluation process,” said Trung Doan, Chairman and CEO of SemiLEDs. “We look forward to announcing more innovative products in the months to come that will further strengthen our position in the market place,” concluded Doan.

GAAP net loss attributable to SemiLEDs stockholders for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $10.0 million, or a net loss of $0.36 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss attributable to SemiLEDs stockholders of $5.1 million, or a net loss of $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
