eMagin Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results


eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT: EMAN), the leader in OLED technology for the design and manufacture of OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced results for the third quarter of 2012, ended September 30, 2012.

“Important items completed during the third quarter include work on two next-generation OLED microdisplays, hiring a new head of manufacturing and achieving full automation of our new OLED deposition tool,” said. Andrew G. Sculley, president and chief executive officer. “Samples of our new XGA display have been shipped, paving the way for our entry into the large and growing market for electronic camera viewfinders. In addition, our new digital SVGA display, a next-generation version of our best-selling product, the SVGA, is nearly complete. These new displays further broaden our industry leading product line of OLED microdisplays, with resolutions from VGA to WUXGA, and soon up to 2,000 by 2,000 pixels.”

Mr. Sculley continued, “We made great strides in optimizing our new OLED deposition machine. We are now running SVGA displays and will qualify other displays going forward. As we continue to enhance our manufacturing operations, we recognized the need to have a highly experienced head of manufacturing on board. To that end, I am pleased to announce that John R. Coleman has joined eMagin as director of manufacturing. John brings more than 25 years of engineering, manufacturing and operations experience at leading high tech companies including ON Semiconductor, UltraSource, Inc., STMicroelectronics and Atmel. John's depth of knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we continue to optimize our new OLED deposition machine, make other enhancements to our processes and prepare for anticipated higher production volumes.”

Third Quarter 2012 Results

Total revenues for the third quarter were $7.5 million versus $8.3 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease in total revenues is attributable to lower R&D contract revenue. Product revenue equaled the comparable year-ago quarter. eMagin had additional display purchase orders that were not shipped and will be pushed into the fourth quarter.

Gross margin for the third quarter was 49 percent on gross profit of $3.6 million, compared to a gross margin of 53 percent on gross profit of $4.4 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease in third quarter 2012 gross margin was due primarily to higher production costs and the lower average selling price per unit.

Operating expenses are comprised of selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses and research and development (R&D) expenses. SG&A expenses decreased $74,000 and R&D expenses increased $408,000 due to increased company funded R&D activity, including work on two new displays, the XGA display for the electronic viewfinder market and the digital SVGA.

Income from operations was $558,000 in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2011. Net income for the third quarter was $340,000 or $0.01 per diluted share. The company adjusts net income for income tax since it records full tax rates but due to its net operating loss carryforwards (NOL) pays only a small amount of income tax. Adjusted net income, taking into account the impact of the net operating loss carryforwards (NOL), was $550,000 or $.02 per diluted share. Third quarter adjusted EBITDA was $1.2 million versus $2.1 million in the prior year. (See tables below.)

At September 30, 2012, the Company had approximately $16.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments in certificates of deposit and corporate bonds, compared to $14.3 million on December 31, 2011. During the quarter, the Company did not repurchase any additional shares of its common stock. As of September 30, 2012, there was approximately $2.0 million remaining under the stock repurchase plan. The Company has no debt.
