Pixelworks Reports Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ:PXLW), an innovative provider of powerful video and pixel processing technology, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Fourth Quarter 2011 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 19% to $16.8 million over the prior year period
  • Revenue from products for advanced TV grew 43% sequentially
  • Recorded volume shipments of the PA136 MotionEngine® Video Processor to tier-one TV OEMs
  • Began volume production for the Topaz family of projector products

Fourth quarter 2011 revenue was $16.8 million, compared to $17.4 million reported in the third quarter of 2011 and $14.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in revenue compared to the year-ago quarter was driven by higher sales of new products and volume shipments for advanced TV. Revenue declined sequentially primarily due to weaker than expected demand in the digital projection market.

On a GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the fourth quarter of 2011 was 47.1%, compared to 48.6% in the third quarter of 2011 and 46.4% in the fourth quarter of 2010. Fourth quarter 2011 GAAP operating expenses were $9.5 million, compared with $9.6 million in the previous quarter and $10.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. For the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company recorded a GAAP net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share, in the third quarter of 2011 and GAAP net loss of $3.2 million, or $0.24 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

On a non-GAAP basis, fourth quarter 2011 gross profit margin was 48.0%, compared to 49.4% in the third quarter of 2011 and 47.1% in the fourth quarter of 2010. The sequential decrease in gross margin was primarily the result of a shift in product mix and the manufacturing ramp of new products. Fourth quarter 2011 operating expenses on a non-GAAP basis were $9.0 million, compared to $9.1 million in the previous quarter and $9.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. On a non-GAAP basis, net loss in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $1.3 million, or $0.07 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.03 per share, in the third quarter of 2011 and net loss of $3.6 million, or $0.27 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

“2011 was a year of solid progress for Pixelworks, as we expanded our product lines for both the digital projection and advanced TV markets,” said Bruce Walicek, President and CEO of Pixelworks. “On a year over year basis our new products were up 66% over 2010 and represented 56% of total sales, compared with 31% in the prior year. We look forward to building on the new product momentum and customer traction across all our product lines in 2012, as we continue to deliver leading performance solutions with superior video quality.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release makes reference to non-GAAP gross profit margins, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share which exclude restructuring charges, amortization of acquired developed technology, stock-based compensation expense, gain on sale of patents, gain on the sale of marketable securities and additional amortization of a non-cancelable prepaid royalty, all of which are required under GAAP. The press release also reconciles GAAP net income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA which Pixelworks defines as GAAP net income before interest expense and other, net, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, as well as the specific items listed above. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures provide a meaningful perspective on the Company's core operating results and underlying cash flow dynamics, but cautions investors to consider these measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, its consolidated financial results as presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included in this earnings release which is available in the investor relations section of the Company's website.

* Our non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share differs from GAAP gross profit, GAAP operating expenses, GAAP net income (loss) and GAAP net income (loss) per share due to the exclusion of gain on the sale of patents, gain on the sale of marketable securities, restructuring charges, amortization of acquired developed technology, stock-based compensation expense and additional amortization of a non-cancelable prepaid royalty. Pixelworks' management believes the presentation of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share provides useful information to investors regarding Pixelworks' results of operations by allowing investors to better evaluate underlying cash flow dynamics. Pixelworks' management also uses each of these non-GAAP measures internally to better evaluate underlying cash flow dynamics. Pixelworks, however, cautions investors to consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, our GAAP financial measures.
