Aliso Viejo, CA – May 1, 2013 – 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, 2013.
“Our first quarter revenues of $11.6 million were up 14.7 percent from the same period last year primarily due to the deployment of our NetWise Director product and continued growth in our CommSuite (Visual Voicemail and Voice-to-Text) solutions,” said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. “First quarter non-GAAP loss per share of $0.08 was nearly cut in half from last year’s $0.15 non-GAAP loss per share due to higher revenues and last year’s cost restructuring.”
Smith Micro reported revenue of $11.6 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared to $10.1 million reported in the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.
First quarter gross profit on a GAAP and non-GAAP (which excludes stock compensation) basis was $9.2 million, compared to $7.9 million reported in the first quarter of 2012.
GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 78.9 percent for the first quarter of 2013, compared to 78.3 percent for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 79.0 percent for the first quarter of 2013, compared to 78.3 percent for the same quarter last year primarily due to our increased revenues.
GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $6.2 million, or a loss of $0.17 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $9.7 million, or $0.27 per share, for the first quarter of 2012.
Non-GAAP net loss (which excludes stock compensation and non-cash tax expense) for the first quarter of 2013 was $3.1 million, or a loss of $0.08 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million, or $0.15 per share, for the first quarter of 2012.
Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at March 31, 2013 were $28.3 million.
Fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2013 were 36.6 million compared to 35.6 million fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2012.
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 March 31, 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.
