Universal Electronics Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI), (NASDAQ: UEIC) reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Paul Arling, UEI's Chairman and CEO, stated: “We delivered better than expected second quarter 2013 results primarily due to strong sales in our subscription broadcasting business, especially in the U.S. and Latin America, as well as our consumer electronics OEM business. UEI is the market leader in wireless control technology for the connected home, but we are not stopping there; we are supplying the innovative solutions that address future evolutions in home entertainment. Our core business continues to grow as our customers are including more advanced technologies into their products, such as Bluetooth-enabled remote controls and onscreen navigation for televisions, which drives demand for a wide variety of UEI solutions. We continue to gain traction with our embedded app technologies such as UEI QuickSet and Control Plus as we work with some of the world's largest smart device companies. In fact, we expect to launch our embedded app technologies with mobile, IPTV and game console companies later in 2013 and into next year. With our market position, market approach and expanding market opportunity, we believe the future has never looked brighter.”
