Intermolecular Announces First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intermolecular, Inc. (Nasdaq:IMI)—accelerating research and development (R&D) for semiconductor and clean-energy industries—today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2012 was $16.4 million, representing 40% growth on a year-over-year basis. Collaborative development program (or CDP) revenue was $12.2 million for the quarter, compared to $7.8 million in the prior year, in part due to an increase in our development program for advanced logic semiconductors, and the initiation of new micro-CDP engagements in the clean energy sector. Licensing and royalty revenue was $3.5 million, compared to $3.2 million for the same period a year ago. Workflow product revenue of $0.7 million was consistent with the $0.7 million recognized in the prior year quarter.

For the first quarter of 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $(0.2) million or $(0.00) per share, compared to a net loss of $(5.3) million, or $(0.93) per share for the first quarter of 2011. Net loss for the first quarter of 2011 includes a $(4.0) million expense associated with the accretion of convertible, redeemable preferred shares, equivalent to $(0.72) per share.

Intermolecular reports revenue, costs of revenue, gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings per share in accordance with GAAP and additionally on a non-GAAP basis.  A reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP measure, 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.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $0.6 million or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $(0.6) million, or $(0.10) per share in the first quarter of 2011.

"We are pleased with the extension and expansion of our customer programs with Toshiba, SanDisk, and Guardian Industries in the first quarter of 2012, which confirms our technical contributions to these key customers. These contracted engagements build the foundation for meaningful year over year revenue growth in 2012," said David Lazovsky, President and CEO of Intermolecular. "While the ongoing reorganization of Elpida introduces uncertainty over the timing and magnitude of volume-based royalties from this customer, we believe the low-power, mobile DRAM technology that we are developing in this collaborative program has significant value to the DRAM industry."

Intermolecular ended the first quarter of 2012 with backlog that is expected to be recognized as revenue over the remainder of 2012 of $43.1 million. When combined with actual revenue of $16.4 million in the first quarter of 2012, backlog at the end of the first quarter of 2012 provides total revenue visibility of approximately $59.5 million for the current year. This compares to $47.2 million in expected revenue out of backlog for 2012 that the Company reported at the end of the prior quarter.

Outlook for Second Quarter 2012

The following statements are based on current expectations for the second quarter of 2012. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially depending on factors set forth under "Forward Looking Statements" below.

  • The Company projects revenue in the range of $14.5 to $15.0 million. This revenue projection includes $14.5 million from our March 31, 2012 reported backlog.
  • Non-GAAP net loss, excluding stock-based compensation expense, is projected between a non-GAAP loss of $(1.0) million to $(0.5) million, or between $(0.02) – $(0.01) per share, on approximately 42.9 million shares outstanding.

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 in accordance with GAAP, and do not serve as an alternative to GAAP. 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, costs of revenue, gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings 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 the financial performance of the Company, to determine executive officer incentive compensation and to plan and forecast performance in future periods. Our non-GAAP measurements are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and are not an alternative to GAAP financial information, and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies.
