Intermolecular Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intermolecular, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMI) today reported results for its second quarter of fiscal 2016 ended June 30, 2016.

Results Highlights:

  • Second quarter revenue of $11.7 million, 7% year-over-year growth, 39% year-over-year program revenue growth
  • Total cash and investments remained strong at $34.2 million

Second Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $11.7 million, up 7% compared to $11.0 million in the same period a year ago.  Program revenue grew significantly to $10.0 million, up 39% from the $7.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2015. Licensing and royalty revenue declined to $1.7 million in the quarter, compared to $3.7 million in the second quarter of the prior year.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $(4.0) million, or $(0.08) per share, compared to a net loss of $(5.7) million, or $(0.12) per share, for the second quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $(3.1) million, or $(0.06) per share compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $(3.9) million, or $(0.08) per share in the second quarter of 2015. 

"The company continues its progress in building a strong base for future growth and profitability. We are building excellent customer relationships while working on expanding our market base both within and outside of semiconductors," said Bruce McWilliams, Executive Chairman.  "As we continue to roll out our IMI Lab services to a broader market, we expect to build a strong and steady pipeline of customers. To accelerate this growth, we announced earlier today that Chris Kramer is joining our team as our new President and Chief Executive Officer. Chris' wealth of knowledge and experience in semiconductor materials makes him the right leader to accelerate the growth of our core business."

Outlook for Third Quarter 2016

"Our third quarter guidance is not where we would like it to be, as we are being impacted by market conditions in the semiconductor memory space where customers have pushed out business, but the company believes it should come back in future quarters," McWilliams said. "We are committed to improving this as rapidly as possible, and Chris' addition as our new CEO will be a tremendous boost to rolling out our IMI Lab services to a broader market, while I focus on strategic initiatives and diversification of our business. We have the right team in place to drive the future growth of our business and fully capitalize on our outstanding technology platform and our materials expertise."

The following statements are based on current expectations for the third quarter of 2016. The Company does not plan to update, nor does it undertake any obligation to update, this outlook in the future.

  • Intermolecular projects revenue in the range of $9.5 million to $10.0 million
  • GAAP net loss is projected between $(6.0) million and $(7.0) million, or between $(0.12) to $(0.14) per share, on approximately 49.5 million shares outstanding
  • Non-GAAP net loss, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, is projected between $(5.0) million and $(6.0) million, or between $(0.10) to $(0.12) per share, on approximately 49.5 million shares outstanding

Intermolecular reports revenue, cost of revenue, gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP measures, as well as a description of the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures, is included in the financial statements portion of this press release. Please refer to "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to Non-GAAP Net Loss" below.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements made in this press release and the earnings call referencing the press release that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are subject to the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements relate to, but are not limited to, our ability to productize our workflows with existing and future customers; expectations regarding our future revenue, cash flow and GAAP and non-GAAP net income or loss; the ability of our new business model to generate profits and long-term shareholder returns; the extent to which technology developed in collaboration with our customers will continue to remain on the critical path and have significant value for such customers and us as well as the industry as a whole;  and anticipated growth in our current markets through expansion of existing customer programs and the entry into other engagements with new customers. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations, including but not limited to: our ability to execute on our strategy, prove our business model and remain technologically competitive in rapidly evolving industry conditions; commercial acceptance of our HPC platform and methodology as effective R&D tools; our ability to achieve and sustain profitability; the ability of our customers to achieve their announced product roadmaps in a timely manner; the extent to which we are able to successfully extend and expand relationships with existing customers; our ability to manage the growth of our business; the rapid technology changes and volatility of the customers and industries we serve; our potential need for future capital to finance our operations; and other risks described in our most recent Form 10-K and our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, each as filed with the SEC and available at www.sec.gov, particularly in the sections titled "Risk Factors." All forward-looking statements are based on management's current estimates, projections and assumptions, and we assume no obligation to update them.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial data presented on a GAAP basis, we also disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude the effect of stock-based compensation. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not serve as an alternative to GAAP and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies. These results should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. We believe that our non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations because the non-GAAP measures exclude charges that management considers to be outside of Intermolecular's core operating results. We believe that the non-GAAP measures of revenue, cost of net revenue, gross profit, gross margin, operating (loss) income, net (loss) income, earnings per share and net (loss) income per share, viewed in combination with our financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, provide investors with additional perspective and a more meaningful understanding of our ongoing operating performance. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures to review and assess financial performance, to determine executive officer incentive compensation and to plan and forecast performance in future periods.
