MEMSIC Announces Third-Quarter 2012 Results
MEMSIC, Inc. (NasdaqGM: MEMS), a leading MEMS sensing solution provider, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.
- Net sales totaled $15.2 million compared to $18.4 million in the 2011 quarter.
- Gross margin was 35.0% compared to 33.8% in the 2011 quarter.
- Operating expenses totaled $5.7 million compared to $7.3 million in the 2011 quarter.
- GAAP net loss was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the 2011 quarter.
- EBITDA was $952,000 compared to $915,000 in the 2011 quarter.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net sales totaled $49.6 million compared to $46.7 million in the first nine months of 2011. Net income totaled $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share in the prior-year period. EBITDA totaled $4.2 million compared to $0.6 million in the 2011 period.
MEMSIC Chairman, President and CEO Dr. Yang Zhao commented, “We continued to grow sales in the consumer market from high-end digital camera applications and from new consumer applications such as tablet computers. We also benefited from design wins at multiple mobile customers in fast-growing smart phone applications in the China market. The increased sales in these areas helped ameliorate the impact of reduced shipments to a large mobile customer stemming from recent changes in MEMSIC's strategy and business focus.
“In the coming months, building on our superior magnetic sensor product, our large presence in the China market and the strong, local technical support we offer, we expect to continue to leverage the growth in the China mobile market. We are also moving forward with our launch of the gas flow sensor module, aimed at the residential and industrial meter markets, that we introduced in June 2012. In addition, we are developing high-performance sensor products for the industrial and automotive markets, as well as high-performance but cost-effective IMU product for industrial applications. Although expanding into new automotive and industrial applications will take time, we are optimistic that our advanced technology will lead the market and, in the long term, enhance the stability and profitability of our Company.”
- Revenue is expected to be between $14 million and $16 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.
- GAAP net loss is expected to be in the range of $0.02 to $0.04 per share for the fourth quarter of 2012.
- Average diluted share count for the 2012 fourth quarter is estimated to be approximately 24.5 million.
Management will hold a conference call and webcast at 5:00 p.m. EST on Monday, November 5, 2012 to review and discuss the Company's results.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information
EBITDA is a measure used by management to evaluate the Company's ongoing operations and as a general indicator of its operating cash flow (in conjunction with a cash flow statement that also includes, among other items, changes in working capital and the effect of non-cash charges). The Company defines EBITDA as net income, plus interest expense net of interest income, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management believes EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the comparative evaluation of companies. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements.
Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided a reconciliation of EBITDA to GAAP net income as an exhibit to this release.
