Interphase Announces Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), a leading global provider of solutions for converged communications networks, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2011 increased approximately 16% to $5.5 million when compared to $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2010. Revenues in the quarter were primarily derived from telecommunications product revenues, which increased to $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared to $3.7 million for the third quarter of 2010. Services revenues increased to $831,000 compared to $510,000 on a year to year basis, while enterprise product revenues decreased to $192,000 for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $438,000 for the third quarter of 2010. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2011 was 47% compared to 49% for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease in gross margin percentage was primarily due to a shift in product mix toward lower margin products and services, partially offset by increased utilization of the company’s manufacturing facility. The company reported a net income of $59,000, or $0.01 per fully diluted share in the third quarter of 2011 compared to a net loss of $4.3 million, or ($0.63) per share in the third quarter of 2010, which included a $3.3 million restructuring charge. On September 30, 2011, the company’s working capital position was $14.8 million, including cash and marketable securities of $11.4 million.

“We are pleased with our third quarter results as we were able to achieve our fifth consecutive quarter of year to year revenue growth and our fourth consecutive quarter of profit,” said Gregory B. Kalush, CEO and President of Interphase. “The telecommunications market continues to be very difficult to predict. Our strategy is to build a more diversified company that is less dependent upon a single market and a small group of customers for its success. We are focused on this strategy and continue to make significant progress toward this goal.”

For the first nine months of 2011, revenues increased approximately 48% to $18.4 million, compared to $12.4 million for the first nine months of 2010. Gross margin increased to 49% for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to 48% for the same period in 2010. The Company reported a net income of $607,000, or $0.09 per fully diluted share for the first nine months of 2011 compared to a net loss for the first nine months of 2010 of $8.9 million, or ($1.30) per share.
