eMagin Corporation (Amex: EMAN), the leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED (AMOLED) microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, issued financial results for its second quarter ending June 30, 2010.

“I am very proud of the achievements that our team has made during the second quarter, which contributed to record sales and strong earnings. We are steadily moving the business forward, especially with our military programs, and effectively using our technology to make advances that both improve the performance of our new microdisplays and result in a broader portfolio of products.

“We believe that OLED technology has inherent advantages in power consumption, contrast, and display size at any given resolution. Our progress in developing an HD-resolution display under the U.S. military’s TATRC program that will consume less than 350 milliwatts of power, provide an outstanding contrast ratio of 100,000 to 1, and is smaller than one inch supports this belief. The great strides we are making in increasing pixel density in the design of a display with over 7 million sub-pixels has very positive implications for our continued development of ultra-high resolution, microdisplay products,” said Andrew Sculley, President and CEO of eMagin Corp.

Mr. Sculley continued, “I believe we are laying the foundation of a strong path forward while increasing awareness about the superiority of OLED technology, as evidenced by the growth of new product sales to military customers in the United States and Europe. The recent choice by FLIR Systems to utilize eMagin’s OLED microdisplay in the electronic viewfinders for its state-of-the-art infrared cameras is an excellent example of our expansion into commercial markets. We are focused on expanding the applications for our OLED microdisplays and expect to develop additional revenue streams as we replicate our success.”

Quarterly Results

eMagin Corporation generated record revenue of $8.3 million for the second quarter of 2010, a 41% increase as compared to 2Q09 primarily due to a significant increase in product revenue and the more than doubling of contract revenue. Including the impact of a $969,000 one-time charge for employee severance, net income for the period was $912,000 or $0.03 per diluted share versus $1.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share in the same period of the prior year. Adjusting for the previously mentioned one-time charge, net income increased by 46% to $1.9 million, or $.06 per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA 1 which is a non-GAAP measure, grew 26% to a record $2.4 million.

The Company achieved a gross margin of 57% of revenue on gross profit of $4.7 million for the quarter, compared to a gross margin of 65% on gross profit of $3.8 million in the same quarter last year. The change in gross margin reflected variation of the product and revenue mix, lower yields associated with newly developed display products and production line setup changes to accommodate different products.

The Company continued to invest in the development of new display products to drive future revenues, resulting in a 79% increase in R&D expenses (including those associated with revenue generating R&D contracts) to $1.6 million. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $3.1 million due to the impact of the previously mentioned one-time charge. Excluding this charge, SG&A increased only 12% over the prior year and exceeded the Company’s goal of maintaining SG&A percentage increases inline or below revenue percentage increases.

At the end of the second quarter, the Company had $8.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposit and carried no debt.

  • eMagin completed the design phase of a $3.2 million subcontract for the U.S. Department of Defense for a specialized OLED microdisplay, with production volume to be delivered in Q3 2010.
  • The Company continued shipments under the Qioptic Vipir II (thermal sight) and Sagem Defense Systems’ Felin (French infantry combat system) programs, under which a combined total of 60,000 units are expected to ship through 2014.
  • FLIR Systems is using the eMagin OLED microdisplay in its P-series and GLF-series state-of-the-art infrared cameras, which can be used for predictive and preventative maintenance as well as a range of non-destructive industrial inspections.
  • Good progress has been made in meeting the overall objectives of the Company’s $6 million program with TATRC, including a significant milestone with the demonstration of a full color microdisplay with under 10 micron pixels. This is a needed step to insuring that we can deliver a 1920 x 1200 (HD resolution) display with the outstanding contrast and low power we have demonstrated on our SXGA display and yet meet the small size requirements.
  • eMagin partnered with Vuzix in supplying the Sarnoff Corporation with highly advanced optical see-through helmet mounted displays for inclusion in an augmented reality training system for the U.S. Department of Defense.
  • eMagin signed an agreement to build the next generation OLED deposition machine that is expected to increase OLED deposition capacity by approximately tenfold, increase yield significantly and contribute to substantially more automated manufacturing processes. The new machine, which will cost approximately $4.0 million, is expected to be completed in Spring 2011, with production beginning in the Fall of 2011.
  • On May 18, 2010, eMagin commenced trading on the NYSE Amex. The move to this exchange was accomplished as a result of initiatives taken during the last two years to improve the Company’s financial results and position the Company for growth.
  • eMagin joined the Russell Microcap Index when it was reconstituted at the end of June. Inclusion in the index is dependent upon market capitalization.


Based on current market conditions as well as our expectations for the second half of the year due to scheduled deliveries under existing contracts, we reiterate our guidance of $28 million to $32 million in total revenue during 2010.
