Luna Innovations Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: LUNA

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA) today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012.

As compared to the same quarter last year, total revenue decreased by 15%, from $9.6 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, driven primarily by the continued softness in the telecom test and measurement market that has negatively affected the company’s products and licensing revenues since the third quarter of 2011. Gross profit decreased from $3.7 million for the second quarter of 2011 to $3.1 million for the second quarter of 2012 with overall margins unchanged at 38%. Offsetting these declines, operating expenses improved 14% to $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. The company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $269,000, or $0.02 per common share for the second quarter of 2012, an improvement of 7% compared to a net loss of $289,000 in the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, which is earnings before interest, taxes, and non-cash expenses of stock based compensation, depreciation, amortization and warrant expense, decreased to $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2012, as compared to $0.7 million for the second quarter of 2011. Cash decreased to $6.6 million at June 30, 2012 compared to $8.1 million at June 30, 2011.

“Our products and licensing revenues for the most recent quarter were consistent with our quarterly revenues since the third quarter of last year, when the telecom test and measurement sector as a whole declined significantly. Our products and licensing revenues over the past four quarters have consistently ranged $2.7 million to $3.1 million. Our growth strategy for the future includes expansion of our products into markets for fiber optic sensing led by our new ODiSI platform. I am pleased that we did complete the roll-out of our new ODiSI-B product with the first shipments of the product realized in the second quarter,” said My Chung, chief executive officer of Luna. “Becoming the leading provider of sensing systems for testing composite materials is one of our key strategies; therefore, we are encouraged by these initial customer purchases and committed to continuing to evolve our solution to respond to the needs of our customers. In addition, we have continued to make solid progress in driving our other strategic growth initiatives, focusing on our fiber-optic shape sensing for medical applications and our cybersecurity solutions.”
