Universal Display Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Financial Results

Universal Display Corporation (Nasdaq: OLED), enabling energy-efficient displays and lighting with its UniversalPHOLED® technology and materials, today announced its results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

For the full year 2013, the Company reported revenues of $146.6 million, up 76% compared to revenues of $83.2 million for 2012. Operating income rose to $38.2 million for the year, up 180% from $13.7 million in 2012. The Company reported net income of $74.1 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, for the full year 2013, compared to net income of $9.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for 2012. The 2013 net income included a total deferred income tax benefit of $41.4 million, which included $59.4 million for the release of income tax valuation allowances offset by the recording of a deferred income tax provision of $17.9 million subsequent to the release. Excluding those items, adjusted net income was $32.6 million, or $0.70 per adjusted diluted share (see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" below for further discussion of these non-GAAP measures).

“Universal Display delivered another strong quarter of profitability and ended 2013 with superior year-over-year growth, translating into record revenues and earnings,” said Sidney D. Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Universal Display. “Across the Company, we have been building momentum for profitable growth. A significant milestone was reached in 2013 with the commercial adoption of our green emissive dopants and green hosts. We continue to expand our IP and materials portfolio, while also pursuing new avenues of opportunity including single layer barrier encapsulation and organic vapor jet printing (OVJP) technologies. These long-term projects are in their early stages, but we believe they hold promise. We are also optimistic about the prospects for growing our business and enabling energy efficient OLED products as we continue to improve our materials, broaden our product portfolio, deepen our customer relationships, and foster developmental activity. Looking ahead to 2014, these factors and the growing OLED market give us confidence in our upward trajectory as we build shareholder value.”

Fourth Quarter Results

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $49.5 million compared to revenues of $28.1 million in the same quarter of 2012. Growth in fourth quarter revenues was led by a 153% increase in material sales, which rose to $25.5 million, up from $10.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, reflecting strong volume growth in green emitter and host material sales. Royalty and license fees were $23.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to $15.4 million in the same quarter of 2012. The Company recognized $20 million in SDC licensing revenue in the fourth quarter of 2013, up from $15 million in the same quarter of 2012.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $30.1 million compared to $19.8 million in the same quarter of 2012. Cost of materials for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $7.7 million compared to $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, reflecting an increase in the quantity of material shipped and changes in product mix.

The Company reported operating income of $19.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $8.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $57.9 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, compared to $5.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 included a total deferred income tax benefit of $41.4 million, which included $59.4 million for the release of income tax valuation allowances offset by the recording of a deferred income tax provision of $17.9 million subsequent to the release. Excluding the net effect of those items, adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $16.5 million, or $0.35 per adjusted diluted share.

Full Year 2013 Results

For the full year 2013, the Company reported revenues of $146.6 million, a 76% increase from the $83.2 million generated in 2012. Material sales for 2013 were $95.7 million, a 115% increase from $44.5 million in 2012. Operating income was $38.2 million compared to $13.7 million in 2012. The Company reported net income of $74.1 million, or $1.59 per diluted share for the full year of 2013, compared to $9.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share for 2012. Net income for the year 2013 included the aforementioned net income tax items of $41.4 million. Excluding these items, adjusted net income was $32.6 million, or $0.70 per adjusted diluted share.

The Company’s balance sheet remained strong, with cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $272.6 million as of December 31, 2013. For the full year 2013, the Company generated $45.0 million in operating cash flow, compared to $17.8 million of operating cash flow in 2012.

2014 Guidance

Although the OLED industry is still at an early stage where many variables can have a material impact on its growth, and the Company thus caveats its financial guidance accordingly, the Company believes that its revenues will be in the range of $190 million to $205 million for fiscal 2014.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures

Operating Results:
Net income (loss) $ 57,886 $ 5,385
Non-GAAP Reconciling Items:
Deferred income tax expense 17,934
Release of income tax valuation allowances (59,352 )
Total non-GAAP reconciling items (41,418 )
Non-GAAP Measures:

Adjusted net income per common share, basic * $ 0.36 $ 0.12
Adjusted net income per common share, diluted ** $ 0.35 $ 0.12
 
_______________________________________________
*   The adjusted net income (loss) per common share, basic is derived from dividing adjusted net income by the number of weighted average shares used in computing basic net income (loss) per common share.
** The adjusted net income per common share, diluted for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, is derived from dividing adjusted net income by adjusted weighted average shares of 46,685,542, which excludes the amount of any excess tax benefits in assumed proceeds in calculating the weighted average shares using the treasury stock method. The exclusion is intended to present our diluted net income per common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as if our assessment of the future realizability of our deferred tax assets did not change and the income tax valuation allowances were not reversed, consistent with prior periods. For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, there is no difference between net income per common share and adjusted net income per common share.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our selected financial data presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use certain non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures include adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per common share, basic and adjusted income (loss) per common share, diluted. Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures of all non-GAAP measures included in the presentation can be found within the table detailing the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures above.

We have provided these non-GAAP measures to enhance investors' overall understanding of our current financial performance, and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our financial performance by excluding the effect of the release of income tax valuation allowances that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results. We believe that the non-GAAP measures that exclude the impact of the release of income tax valuation allowances and deferred income tax expense recognized after the release of the allowances, when viewed with GAAP results, enhance the comparability or results against prior periods and allow for greater transparency of financial results. The presentation of non-GAAP measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
