Smith Micro Announces 2002 First Quarter Results

Apr 25, 2002
Wireless Sales Slow Due to Delay of 1xRTT Handset Shipments

Aliso Viejo, CA -- Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and service solutions for the wireless and Internet markets, today reported its first quarter 2002 results.

The company reported net revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2002, of $1.9 million, compared to $3.0 million in the first quarter of 2001. The company's net loss of $582,000 in the first quarter of 2002 resulted in a loss of $.04 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million in the first quarter 2001 or a loss of $.10 per basic and diluted share.

Effective January 1, 2002 with the adoption of Statement of Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, and Smith Micro no longer amortizes goodwill and indefinite life intangibles. For comparison, goodwill amortization expense was $136,000 in the first quarter of 2001. Also, beginning January 1, 2002, the Company adopted Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) 01-09, Accounting for Consideration Given by a Vendor to a Customer (Including a Reseller of the Vendor's Products), which resulted in certain costs, such as customer rebates, to be classified as a reduction of revenue rather than selling expense. Prior year's balances have been reclassified to conform to the current year's presentation.

"We anticipated several orders to come from customers of our Wireless and Broadband group in the first quarter that were delayed," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. "We expect these delayed orders to arrive during the second quarter of 2002 and in fact some have already been received. The delay was a combination of difficulties surrounding the implementation of 1xRTT handsets and resulting in shipping delays."

"We continue to be very confident that the wireless sector is an exciting sector for us to address. This belief is reinforced by research suggesting that the wireless sector should continue to have a positive growth rate over the next few years. We continue to look for overall profitable for the year 2002," Mr. Smith concludes.
