Generates Positive Cash Flow and Completes Public Offering of Common Stock
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOSY), today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.
Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results
Total net revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was $4.3 million, compared with $4.6 million for the previous quarter and $2.5 million for the third quarter of 2017. Product revenue for the third quarter was $4.1 million, consistent with the second quarter of 2018, and compared with $2.2 million in the year-ago period reflecting increased IC shipments to multiple design-win customers.
Gross margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 55%, compared with 60% for the previous quarter and 49% for the third quarter of 2017. The sequential decrease in gross margin was due primarily to a reduction in one-time licensing revenues and standard cost adjustments.
Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2018 were $5.1 million, which included a goodwill impairment charge of $3.2 million, and compared with operating expenses of $2.2 million in the previous quarter and $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2017. Total operating expenses on a non-GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2018 decreased to $1.7 million, compared with $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2018 and $2.5 million in the third quarter of 2017.
GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2018 was $2.8 million, or ($0.34) per share, compared with net income of $0.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the previous quarter and a net loss of $1.7 million, or ($0.22) per share, for the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2018 was $0.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, and compared with net income of $0.5 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the previous quarter and a net loss of $1.5 million, or ($0.18) per share, for the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2018 was $0.8 million, and compared with $0.9 million for the previous quarter and a negative $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2017. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.
As of October 31, 2018, the Company had 39,040,586 shares of common stock outstanding, which excludes 6,144,109 shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of pre-funded warrants issued in October 2018.
“I am pleased with our financial results for the third quarter, as we once again generated positive cash flow and achieved non-GAAP profitability,” commented Daniel Lewis, president and CEO of MoSys. “During 2018, we have expanded our sales channels, which has contributed to an increased sales pipeline and new design wins that we believe will add to our revenue base in 2019 and beyond. Our operations team continues to execute, and we expect 2018 to be a record-breaking year for product shipments, primarily driven by our Bandwidth Engine 2 products.”
Mr. Lewis continued, “In addition, we closed a public offering in early October, generating net proceeds of approximately $3.0 million, and significantly improved our balance sheet. We used most of the offering proceeds to reduce our outstanding convertible note obligation to $2.7 million, which now is not due until August 2023. Based on customer orders and forecasts, we have good visibility for the fourth quarter of 2018 and into the first half of 2019. With our improved financial position, we remain focused on supporting our existing customers and design wins in process, expanding our customer base and managing our expenses in support of our long-term goals and objectives.”
Business Outlook for Fourth Quarter of 2018
The Company expects total net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 to be in the range of $3.2 million to $3.5 million. The mid-point of this guidance represents an expectation for full year revenue to increase approximately 87% over 2017. The Company also expects to achieve profitability on a non-GAAP basis for the full year.
Financial Results Conference Call
The Company will not be hosting a conference call or webcast in conjunction with today’s release of its third quarter results.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement MoSys’ consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, MoSys uses non-GAAP financial measures that exclude from the statement of operations the effects of stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization and restructuring and impairment charges. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors and other interested persons because they are one of the primary indicators that MoSys’ management uses for planning and forecasting future performance. The press release also makes reference to and reconciles GAAP net income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA, which the Company defines as GAAP net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax provision, and depreciation and amortization, as well as stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization and restructuring and impairment charges. Management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because management does not consider these charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company that are within the control of management or that would be used to evaluate management’s operating performance.
Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which are provided in tables below the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. For additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, and management’s explanation of why it considers such measures to be useful, refer to the Form 8-K dated November 6, 2018 that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
