Smith Micro Software Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Nov 07, 2013
Restructure complete; expects improved financial performance in Q4

Aliso Viejo, CA - November 7, 2013 - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

"The restructuring plan to reduce expenses that we announced last quarter has been completed through the closing and consolidating of certain facilities, and reducing our worldwide headcount by approximately 26 percent, which will help our efforts to return to profitability in the fourth quarter," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. "The cost of this restructuring plan resulted in a one-time charge to expense of $5.6 million that was recorded in the third fiscal quarter."

"Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were down sequentially and year over year primarily due to the decline of our legacy connection manager products that are tied to USB modem sales. However, our CommSuite solution for premium visual messaging continued to show strong growth during the quarter and increased 58.5 percent over the same quarter last year and 14.5 percent sequentially over the second quarter of this year."

"As we look to our fourth quarter, we will benefit from a lower cost structure and we will see revenues improve as we have closed new deals which will bring new revenue to our Q4," concluded Mr. Smith.

Smith Micro reported revenues of $8.7 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $11.0 million reported in the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third quarter 2013 gross profit on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis (which excludes stock compensation) was $6.3 million, compared to $8.9 million reported in the third quarter of 2012.

GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 71.5 percent for the third quarter of 2013, compared to 80.7 percent for the third quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 71.6 percent for the third quarter of 2013, compared to 80.8 percent for the same quarter last year. The gross profit decrease was a result of the lower revenues and product mix.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $13.0 million, or $0.35 loss per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $4.8 million, or $0.13 loss per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP net loss (which excludes stock compensation and non-cash tax expense) for the third quarter of 2013 was $7.5 million, or $0.20 loss per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.07 loss per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the restructuring charge, the non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2013 would have been $4.0 million, or $0.11 loss per diluted share.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company reported revenues of $30.8 million, compared to $31.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Gross profit on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis (which excludes stock compensation) was $23.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $25.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 76.2 percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to 80.5 percent for the same period last year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 76.3 percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to 80.5 percent for same period last year.

GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $26.5 million, or a loss of $0.72 per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 of $21.3 million, or $0.59 loss per diluted share.

Non-GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $14.4 million, or a loss of $0.39 per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $11.2 million, or $0.31 loss per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Excluding the restructuring charge, the non-GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 would have been $10.9 million, or $0.30 loss per diluted share.

Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at September 30, 2013 were $18.1 million.

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 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 September 30, 2013 was computed by using a tax rate of 38 percent 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.
