EMagin Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT: EMAN), the leader in the technology, development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

“Our second quarter 2013 results reflect some of the challenges we have continued to face as an R&D provider and high tech manufacturer. Although product revenue, primarily displays, increased 15 percent for the first half of 2013 versus the first half of 2012, and total revenues for the first half increased 5.5 percent over the first half of last year, our overall revenues were lower in the second quarter compared to the year-ago quarter primarily due to lower contract R&D from U.S. government agencies, which have been impacted by sequestration and other budget-related issues as well as manufacturing challenges including those associated with bringing our new OLED deposition tool up to full operation and the fulfillment of large volume orders with stringent specifications,” said Andrew G. Sculley, President and CEO.

“While we were pleased that almost half of the OLED deposition was accomplished during the second quarter using our new deposition tool and that overall, we have produced more units year to date than in the comparable period last year, neither yield nor output are where we want them to be. We are continuing to utilize personnel and other resources to further optimize the tool and we remain confident that yield, which is now about equal to our Satella deposition tool, will continue to improve. However, as a result of our efforts to improve the new deposition tool’s yield and output, we experienced higher than anticipated manufacturing costs in the quarter, which impacted our operating performance.”

Mr. Sculley continued, “Strong demand from domestic and international customers, particularly in the military segment, reflects our continued technological leadership in the emerging OLED microdisplay industry. We intend to remain the technology leader in the OLED microdisplay space by offering new generations of super bright, super-efficient microdisplays, including our new OLED-XLS, which is ideally suited to meet even the most demanding military applications, and our new, direct patterning technology, which we view as the next technological step to higher brightness and efficiency.”

Quarterly Results

Revenues for the second quarter were $7.0 million versus $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2012. The decrease in revenues resulted primarily from $1.2 million less in R&D contract revenue. The Company had one active contract in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to five active contracts in the prior year period. On a sequential basis, the revenues were down approximately $1.6 million from first quarter primarily as a result of lower average price due to the mix of products sold.

Gross margin for the second quarter was 34 percent on gross profit of $2.4 million compared to a gross margin of 53 percent on gross profit of $4.5 million in the same quarter last year. The cost per display increased from the prior year due to higher manufacturing costs including increased personnel to staff extra shifts, costs associated with the new OLED deposition tool and increased depreciation due to new equipment including the new deposition tool. It is expected that the cost per unit will decrease as the new tool is further optimized and volumes increase.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2013 decreased to $3.5 million from $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. Operating expenses are comprised of R&D expenses and selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses. SG&A expense decreased 11 percent to $2.1 million compared to $2.3 million in the year-ago quarter. R&D expenses increased 16 percent to $1.5 million from $1.3 million in the same quarter last year. Some of this increase is due to fewer R&D contracts this year where a portion of the R&D expense would be allocated to the cost of goods for those R&D contracts. The overall change in operating expenses was primarily due to decreased stock and incentive compensation expenses offset by an increase in salary and wage expense.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 was $1.0 million or $0.04 per diluted share compared to net income of $577,000 or $0.02 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012. EBITDA for the second quarter was negative $0.4 million from a positive $1.6 million last year. Year to date EBITDA is $0.7 million.

At June 30, 2013, the Company continued to have no debt and had approximately $13.4 million of cash, cash equivalents, and investments in certificates of deposit and corporate bonds, compared to $13.4 million at December 31, 2012.

Recent Corporate Highlights
  • eMagin’s customer, ITT Exelis Geospatial Systems, was awarded the next program in the Display Beam Combiner Assembly (DBCA) for the Spiral Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (SENVG) program for the U.S. Army. The deliveries to Exelis under the current Enhanced Night Vision Goggle II (ENVG II) program production year 2 were completed in the second quarter. We recently received the award for production year 3.
  • The Company has been awarded a $3.5 million contract for our VGA display from a new customer to supply a Thermal Weapon Sight program. Initial shipments began in the first quarter of 2013 and will continue at least through May 2014.
  • R&D contract work continues and good progress is being made on Phase II of the NAVAIR program to complete a 2,000 by 2,000 pixel, very high brightness monochrome and color microdisplays for the US Navy targeted for avionic head mounted displays and high performance portable digital goggle systems. This display is particularly well suited for military avionics and there is interest in head-mounted displays for both helicopter and fixed wing aircraft. This work could open new doors in commercial and consumer areas.
  • The new DSVGA display is in qualification and is expected to be released for production in fourth quarter. This display is twice as efficient as our current flagship SVGA product. Customers are already developing new applications that will take advantage of the DSVGA’s features, including improvements embodied in the Company’s SXGA and WUXGA OLED microdisplays, while adding a digital interface for improved contrast and pixel-to-pixel uniformity. Early samples have been sent to key customers.
  • eMagin’s new SXGA096 display, scheduled for engineering sample release later this year, is already being designed into a large soldier program upgrade expected to go to initial production by the end of 2014. The compact size of the SXGA096, coupled with the power and luminous efficiency of the OLED- XLS technology, provide users with a capability not found in any other OLED based microdisplays.
  • Good progress has been made on the viewfinder application of our new XGA product with a large camera manufacturer. The XGA will allow us to enter the camera market with an effective, efficient display that meets requirements, yet is more economical to produce due to its smaller size. The color gamut has been improved to very competitive levels and work on further improvement continues.
  • eMagin is continuing its work on direct patterning that, when complete, will result in displays with no color filters that are four to five times more efficient and can be much brighter than microdisplays using the Company’s current color filter technology. This will enable the Company to better meet the needs of customers who have very high brightness requirements. We have ordered a $1.2 million custom tool for direct patterning that is expected to be delivered by Spring 2014.
  • eMagin has recently announced the development of a new class of displays that are capable of higher luminance, lower operating voltage and lesser power consumption than the existing OLED-XL displays. These displays, called OLED-XLS, are currently available as engineering samples and are expected to be fully qualified by the fourth quarter of 2013. Compared to our XL technology, the XLS will run at four times the brightness, (1000 nits). The new low voltage display consumes half the power of existing products.


Due to the second quarter results, ongoing constraints in U.S. government spending and, to a lesser extent, manufacturing challenges including those associated with the new deposition tool, eMagin is lowering its revenue guidance to a range of $32 million to $35 million from $34 million to $39 million for full year 2013. The Company still expects that year-over-year revenue growth will be driven by a significant increase in displays shipped, which should more than offset the decline in R&D contract revenue.
