Share:
ALISO VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

“Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were 8.3% higher than the second quarter primarily due to the continued roll-out of NetWise Director™, our data offload solution, as well as market expansion of our Visual Voicemail and Voicemail-to-Text products,” said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. “Our operating expenses for this quarter were down slightly versus the second quarter, and were down 35% this year versus the same quarter last year excluding restructuring and impairment charges. We remain prudent about managing costs while continuing to invest in strategic areas of our business, such as Windows 8, intelligent traffic management, and enterprise mobile connectivity.”

Smith Micro reported revenues of $11.0 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $12.6 million reported in the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, and $10.2 million for second quarter of 2012.

Third quarter 2012 gross profit on a GAAP basis was $8.9 million and was the same as reported in the third quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis (which excludes amortization of intangibles and stock compensation), third quarter 2012 gross profit was $8.9 million, compared to $10.2 million for the same quarter last year.

GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 80.7% for the third quarter of 2012, compared to 70.7% for the third quarter of 2011 primarily due to no amortization of intangibles this year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 80.8% for the third quarter of 2012, compared to 80.7% for the same quarter last year.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $4.8 million, or $0.13 loss per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $134.5 million, or $3.76 loss per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011. The 2011 net loss included the goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charge of $124.3 million.

Non-GAAP net loss (which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation, impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets, and non-cash tax expense) for the third quarter of 2012 was $2.4 million, or $0.07 loss per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $9.7 million, or $0.27 loss per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported revenues of $31.3 million, compared to $46.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

GAAP gross profit was $25.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $35.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Non-GAAP gross profit (which excludes amortization of intangibles and stock compensation) was $25.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $39.3 million for the same period last year.

GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 80.5% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 76.3% for the same period last year primarily due to no amortization of intangibles this year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 80.5% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 84.5% for the same period last year.

GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $21.3 million, or a loss of $0.59 per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 of $150.1 million, or $4.22 loss per diluted share. The 2011 GAAP net loss included the goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charge of $124.3 million. Non-GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $11.2 million, or a loss of $0.31 per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $19.7 million, or $0.55 loss per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at September 30, 2012 were $27.0 million.

The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, loss before taxes, net loss and loss per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes that this presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing our income generation, since amortization of intangibles from acquisitions, stock-based compensation, goodwill and long-lived asset impairment and non-cash tax expense are excluded from the non-GAAP earnings calculation. Since we are in a loss position, the non-GAAP income tax benefit for the period ended September 30, 2012 was computed by using a tax rate of 37.7% using the Company's normalized combined U.S. federal, state and foreign statutory tax rates less various tax adjustments. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The tables below present the differences between non-GAAP earnings and net loss on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-financial measures as reported by Smith Micro Software may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.
