TOP CONTRIBUTORS

InvenSense (NYSE:INVN) is a technology company which specializes in motion processing devices. They build the chips which are used in gaming devices, smartphones, tablets, video cameras, navigation devices, and other electronic equipment which detect, measure and analyze motion. InvenSense sells a range of processor which vary in degrees of motion it can detect. The company believes that motion detection will continue to expand into mobile devices, toys and game controllers.[1]

Business Overview

For the full year 2011, InvenSense's total revenue was $96.5M. This was an increase over the $79.6M announced in 2010. Net income for 2011 was $9.3M, a decrease from the $15.5M in 2010. The drop was caused largely by a rise in Selling, General & Administrative Expenses (SG&A).[2]

Trends & Forces

Dependence on certain customers

InvenSense has historically received the majority of its revenue from Nintendo (NTDOY) through the sale of chips used in the Wii. A disruption to the Wii's strong sales would have a substantial impact on InvenSense. As a result, the company's performance will be dependent on its ability to transition to other industries or companies. This depends both on the growth of the market for motion sensing devices as well as the ability to develop relations with new companies.[4][5]
