Aliso Viejo, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading developer and marketer of software solutions and services for the mobility market, today reported financial results for the fiscal 2010 fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2010.
"Our solid fourth quarter performance contributed to closing out fiscal 2010 as a very strong year where we achieved both record revenues and profitability," said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. "In addition to delivering outstanding financial results, during the year we embarked on several key new initiatives within the Company designed to put us in position to capture new opportunities emerging with the rapid adoption of broadband mobile data services along with the deployments of 4G next generation wireless networks."
Mr. Smith concluded, "We are encouraged by the early response to some of our key initiatives such as our Quicklink Mobile Hotspot Manager powered by our SODA (Secure on-Device API) that will bring a new level of manageability to the mobile hotspot users experience while enabling carriers and device manufacturers with increased efficiencies and velocity to market with these exciting new products."
Smith Micro reported revenues of $35.3 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010, an 18.8% increase over revenues of $29.7 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Fourth quarter gross profit on a GAAP basis increased $5.1 million to $31.2 million, an increase of 19.3% from the fourth quarter of 2009. On a non-GAAP basis (which excludes amortization of intangibles and stock compensation), fourth quarter gross profit was $32.6 million, an increase of $5.0 million, or 18.1%, from the $27.6 reported in the fourth quarter of 2009.
GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 88.5% for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with 88.2% for the fourth quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 92.3% for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to 92.9% for the same quarter last year.
GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $5.8 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009.
Non-GAAP net income (which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation and non-cash tax expense) for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $13.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared to $8.9 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009.
Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at December 31, 2010 increased $26.7 million during 2010 to $72.6 million, up from $45.9 million at December 31, 2009.
For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net revenues of $130.5 million, a 21.6% increase over net revenues of $107.3 million reported for fiscal 2009.
Full year gross profit on a GAAP basis of $115.0 million increased $23.2 million, or 25.3%, from $91.8 million reported for fiscal 2009.
On a non-GAAP basis (which excludes amortization of intangibles and stock compensation), gross profit was $121.0 million, an increase of $24.1 million, or 24.9%, from the same period last year.
GAAP net income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 was $12.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $4.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for fiscal 2009.
Non-GAAP net income (which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation and non-cash tax expense) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 was $33.9 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $25.1 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, for fiscal 2009.
The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, income before taxes, net income and earnings per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes that this presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing our income generation, since amortization of intangibles from acquisitions, stock compensation, and non-cash tax expense are excluded from the non-GAAP earnings calculation. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The tables below present the differences between non-GAAP earnings and net income on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-financial measures as reported by Smith Micro Software may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.
Based on current financial data and management's current plans and assumptions, Smith Micro is projecting that its revenues for fiscal first quarter of 2011 will be between $15 million to $20 million.
