Aliso Viejo, CA, May 2, 2012 - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2012.
"Revenues for the first quarter of 2012 were in line with expectations. Decreases in our connection manager revenues were offset by gains in our wireless backup and messaging product lines," said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. "We expect the first commercial launch of our data offload solution will slowly ramp in the second quarter, and anticipate significant volumes in early third quarter. This, along with several other carrier trials and new product agreements we are working to complete, should lead to improved financial results in the coming quarters."
"Our operating expenses for the quarter are down 35 percent compared to the first quarter of last year. We continue to carefully balance a reduced cost structure with current revenue levels, though we believe investments in product innovation and development should increase future revenues."
Mr. Smith concluded, "New solutions for mobile application management and the emerging Windows 8 platform are gaining strong interest in the market. Although we cannot predict with certainty when our new products will be deployed by carriers, we remain very positive about the Company's short-term and long-term prospects as we expand our portfolio to meet the evolving needs of the wireless marketplace."
Smith Micro reported revenue of $10.1 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012, compared to $17.8 million reported in the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.
First quarter gross profit on a GAAP basis was $7.9 million, compared to $14.0 million reported in the first quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis (which excludes amortization of intangibles and stock compensation), first quarter gross profit was $7.9 million, compared to $15.3 million for the same quarter last year.
GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 78.3% for the first quarter of 2012, compared to 78.8% for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 78.3% for the first quarter of 2012, compared to 86.0% for the same quarter last year primarily due to our lower revenue.
GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2012 was $9.7 million, or a loss of $0.27 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $7.8 million, or $0.22 per share, for the first quarter of 2011.
Non-GAAP net loss (which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation and non-cash tax expense) for the first quarter of 2012 was $5.3 million, or a loss of $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.13 per share, for the first quarter of 2011.
Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at March 31, 2012 were $37.6 million.
Fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2012 were 35.6 million compared to 35.3 million fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2011.
The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, loss before taxes, net loss and loss 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-based compensation and non-cash tax expense are excluded from the non-GAAP earnings calculation. Since we are in a loss position, the non-GAAP income tax benefit for the period ended March 31, 2012 was computed by using a tax rate of 37.7% using the Company's normalized combined U.S. federal, state and foreign statutory tax rates less various tax adjustments. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The tables below present the differences between non-GAAP earnings and net loss 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.
