Sequential revenue growth for the second quarter expected to exceed 20%; Company targets strong sequential revenue growth for the third quarter
BOTHELL, Wash., Jun 13, 2002 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Microvision, Inc.
(Nasdaq:MVIS), a leader in light scanning technologies, today announced that
second quarter revenue is expected to be greater than $4.5 million, which
exceeds the Company’s previous revenue guidance and would mark the strongest
quarter in the Company’s history.
Guidance was provided most recently on May 9th in a press release accompanying
its first quarter financial results conference call. Second quarter revenue is
expected to be more than 20% higher than the first quarter and more than 150%
higher than the prior year’s second quarter. Second quarter revenue is being
driven by increased contract development revenue and sales of the Company’s
Nomad personal display. The Company also indicated that it expects its net loss
per share to improve substantially over the first quarter of 2002, and to beat
current analysts’ estimates as reported by First Call.
The Company also said that it continues to target strong sequential revenue
growth for the third quarter that would result in a triple digit gain over the
$2.4 million reported in the third quarter of 2001.
“We are encouraged based on what we have seen in the second quarter and remain
excited about the way the year is shaping up with evidence of growing demand for
both the Nomad display and the Flic personal barcode scanner,” said Rick
Rutkowski, Microvision President and CEO. “We expect to provide more detailed
guidance as the quarter progresses.”
