UniPixel Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of advanced solutions to the touchscreen and flexible electronics markets, reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Revenue for the second quarter totaled $1.3 million compared to $1.0 million for the second quarter of 2016. The Company reported a net loss of $(11.2) million, or $(0.18) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to a net loss of $(6.1) million, or $(0.16) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP metric (see Table A), for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $(8.1) million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(4.2) million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Management Discussion:
Jeff Hawthorne, president and chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, "One of our customers delayed taking delivery of XTouch sensors scheduled for the second quarter due to an LCD shortage and a battery issue which impacted their supply chain and ability to ship product. Although this type of delay is not unusual in the computing device manufacturing process, it affected a large number of programs and as a result had a significant impact on our revenue for the quarter. We expect the deliveries to take place in the coming quarters.

"We made a strategic decision during the quarter to increase prices on some of our XTouch sensors for orders that include specifications for a certain active stylus application. The amount of XTouch sensor customization necessary demands a higher price point. These price increases will become effective during the third quarter. While we are not inclined to turn away business, we will not engage in projects where we cannot earn a reasonable margin."

Mr. Hawthorne continued, "Over the past few weeks we have introduced new high-speed Diamond Guard coating equipment into our production line – which will increase efficiency, quality and yield. Our expectation is for dramatically enhanced capabilities to apply the Diamond Guard coating to our sensors, setting the stage for the next generation of sensor technology that we currently have in development."

Subsequent to the quarter, on August 8, 2017, the Company announced the signing of a non-binding letter of intent to enter into a strategic transaction with Future Tech, under which Future Tech will produce UniPixel's XTouch™sensors in Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province in The People's Republic of China. 

Under the terms of the letter, UniPixel expects to form a joint venture where Future Tech will own and operate a manufacturing facility in Changzhou City, China based on UniPixel's XTouch technology. Future Tech will be responsible for creating an organization to manufacture, sell, market and distribute metal mesh touch screen sensors to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") headquartered in the Asia Pacific region.

The letter of intent provides that Future Tech will pay UniPixel up to $5.1 million for rights, know-how and some manufacturing assets that will be transferred to the joint venture; $2 million will be paid at an initial closing, with the remaining amounts payable upon equipment qualification and manufacturing milestones. Future Tech will separately provide all funding necessary to establish the manufacturing facilities, acquire the necessary manufacturing equipment, operate the facility and meet required working capital needs.  A definitive agreement is expected to be executed during September 2017.

Mr. Hawthorne commented further, "We also continue to make progress on strategic alliances for future technology development – especially for flexible/foldable display applications. During the quarter we engaged with GIS to jointly develop UniPixel's touch sensor technology, specifically for flexible display applications for the mobile phone.

"UniPixel  is responsible for designing and manufacturing development stage sensors based on specifications provided by GIS.  GIS will be responsible for integrating the sensors into the flexible display stack. The parties will share reliability and test data with one another. We are pleased to be working with this partner who has the display expertise and scale to enter this market."

"We are making measurable progress in moving the business forward," concluded Mr. Hawthorne.

Second Quarter 2017 Results:
For the three months ended June 30, 2017 revenues were $1.3 million compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

The second quarter of 2017 included R&D manufacturing labor and materials as we began to fulfill our 2016 program wins. R&D includes certain non-cash charges, including amortization and stock-based compensation, which totaled $0.5 million during the second quarter of 2017 and $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP metric (see Table A), for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $(8.1) million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(4.2) million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company has provided the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release and the accompanying table: Adjusted EBITDA. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to analyze its operating performance and liquidity and believes they are useful as a supplement to GAAP measures in analyzing, trending and benchmarking the performance and value of our business across reporting periods as they exclude items that management believes are not reflective of the operating performance of the Company. As a result, these non-GAAP measures are provided to supplement investors' overall understanding of, and an enhanced level of transparency into, the Company's financial performance. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is also required by the covenants in the Company's credit agreement to be delivered to its lender. Management does not place undue reliance on Adjusted EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance, and in fact, Adjusted EBITDA is not presented as an alternative measure of operating performance, as determined in accordance with GAAP; nor should it be considered a substitute for, or superior to the comparable GAAP measures. Rather, these measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. No other adjustments were made during the three month period ended June 30, 2017. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA (loss) to exclude discontinued operations, debt issuance cost amortization, gain on change in warranty liability, accretion of discount on convertible notes, interest expense on convertible note, depreciation, amortization of licenses, non-cash stock-based compensation, restricted stock issuance expense and severance. For reconciliation under GAAP to the Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA see Table A that is included in the tables accompanying this release.
