Company shipped display engines to Chinese smartphone manufacturer
and received large upfront payment from a leading technology company
REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 3, 2017–
Inc. (NASDAQ: MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature
projection display and sensing technology, today announced its financial
and operating results for the second quarter of 2017.
MicroVision made an initial shipment at the end of the second quarter of
display engines to Ragentek, a China-based smartphone manufacturer and
solution company with phones in China, India, Brazil and other
countries. Ragentek placed a $6.7 million order with MicroVision in
March 2017 for a customized display engine, PSE-0403-103, to be embedded
in its VOGA V smartphone which Ragentek revealed on June 28, 2017 at
Mobile World Congress Asia. MicroVision began volume shipments in July.
Due to timing of the June shipment and the customer acceptance window,
revenue for the shipped units was not recognized in the second quarter.
The PSE-0403-103 display engine is part of MicroVision’s engine line of
business, which includes two additional scanning engines, one for
interactive display and the other for 3D LiDAR sensing, that are
scheduled for commercial availability later in 2017 and 2018
respectively. During the second quarter MicroVision continued its
development of the interactive display and 3D LiDAR sensing engines.
In April 2017 MicroVision announced that it has been awarded a
development and supply contract for a laser beam scanning (LBS) system
by a leading technology company that included $14 million in development
fees contingent on completion of milestones and an additional $10
million upfront payment which was received in the second quarter and is
expected to be applied to future component purchases by the customer.
The development work began in April and is expected to span 21 months.
MicroVision also continued work on two additional development contracts
the company signed last year. One of those contracts is for augmented
reality and the other is for an automated driving assistance system
(ADAS). The company expects to complete work on both of those
development contracts in 2017.
The following financial results are for the three months ended June 30,
2017, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016:
- Revenue was $1.5 million compared to $4.2 million one year ago.
Operating loss was $5.5 million, compared to a loss of $3.5 million
for the same quarter one year ago.
Net loss was $5.5 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to a loss of
$3.5 million, or $0.07 per share for the same quarter one year ago.
In the second quarter 2017 cash provided by operations was $4.6
million compared to cash used in operations of $4.1 million for the
same period in 2016. Cash provided by operations in the quarter
includes the $10 million upfront payment and $4 million in payments
under the April 2017 development contract.
As of June 30, 2017 backlog was $21.5 million and cash and cash
equivalents were $17.7 million.
