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 its 2009 first quarter ending March 31, 2009.
"I am pleased to report another solid financial performance for our first quarter of 2009, which included achieving record Q1 revenue of $23.8 million, an increase of 9% year-over-year", said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software, Inc. "Our wireless business segment, which includes our Connectivity and Security mobility products, continues to strongly contribute to our overall organic growth, increasing 19% over the first quarter last year to $19.3 million."
Mr. Smith continued, "We continued to see growth in our core wireless space, as highlighted by several significant new customer wins. During the first quarter, we signed new key customer contracts across all of our product groups and believe that these new contracts will be strong contributors to our financial results this fiscal year, especially in the second half of 2009 as these new services launch."
Mr. Smith concluded, "We continue to remain very optimistic about our strong platform of mobility software products, and see our continued success at winning new customers as core to our growth strategy and financial opportunity for the balance of the year and into 2010."
Smith Micro reported record revenue of $23.8 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009, a 9% increase over the $21.9 million reported in the first quarter ended March 31, 2008.
First quarter gross profit on a GAAP basis of $19.3 million increased $2.5 million, or 15% from the first quarter ended March 31, 2008. On a non-GAAP basis (which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation and non-cash tax expense), first quarter gross profit was $20.5 million, an increase of $2.7 million, or 15%, from the same quarter last year.
GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 81.0% for the first quarter of 2009, compared with 76.6% for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 86.3% for the first quarter of 2009, compared to 81.4% for the same quarter last year.
GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2009 increased to $278,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, which compared to a GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2008 of $317,000, or $0.01 per diluted share.
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2009 increased to $4.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, which compared to $3.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2008.
Fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2009 were 31.9 million as compared to 30.4 million weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2008.
Total cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments increased $4.4 million during the quarter to $41.0 million, which compared to $36.6 million at December 31, 2008.
The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, 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-based 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.
Smith Micro Software is providing fiscal year 2009 revenue guidance of $110 million to $115 million.
