Intermolecular Announces Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intermolecular, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMI) today reported results for its third quarter of fiscal 2016 ended September 30, 2016.

Results Highlights:

  • Third quarter total revenue finished at $10.6 million, with program revenue growing 2% year-over-year
  • Significant cost reduction initiatives completed.  With lower cost structure, revenue required for positive EBITDA has been reduced from approximately $12.5 million to $11.0-$11.5 million, on a quarterly basis.
  • Total cash and investments remain strong at $31.9 million

Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2016 was $10.6 million, down by 8%, compared to $11.5 million in the same period a year ago.  Program revenue grew to $8.9 million, up 2%, from the $8.7 million recorded in the third quarter of 2015. Licensing and royalty revenue declined to $1.7 million in the quarter, compared to $2.8 million in the third quarter of the prior year.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter was $(6.8) million, or $(0.14) per share, compared to a net loss of $(5.8) million, or $(0.12) per share, for the third quarter of 2015.  Included in this figure were re-structuring charges of $1.1 million in the quarter, $.9M of asset write-downs and $.9M of patent impairments.

Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter was $(5.9) million, or $(0.12) per share compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $(4.7) million, or $(0.10) per share in the third quarter of 2015.  This figure  includes the re-structuring and impairment charges listed above.

"My initial months at Intermolecular have been productive and positive. I have quickly been able to get my arms around our operations, and have begun to address the challenges to growth.  My initial focus has been on improving our sales organization, restructuring and expanding IMI's new business opportunities.  The actions we took this quarter will lower our EBITDA break-even revenue point to the $11.5M range per quarter.  In addition, I have seen the market conditions stabilize with our key customers and have gotten customer commitments that should increase our pipeline significantly in 2017 and 2018. I believe that this improved pipeline  will yield a larger and more predictable base of business," said Chris Kramer, CEO of Intermolecular.  "IMI has ample opportunities to grow in both the short and long term, with our proven technical capabilities and significant know-how.  I remain extremely confident in IMI's solid foundation, unique platform, and value proposition. I am excited to have learned that our customers overwhelmingly value IMI's services and knowledge and that our flexible service-based model for IMI Labs makes IMI a valuable extension or complement to our customers' own R&D capabilities."

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".

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; financial condition; 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 expense. 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.
