Maxwell Technologies Reports Second Quarter Financial Results Sales, Gross Profit and EPS All Up vs. Q211; Company Sees Increasing Top Line Growth

CONFERENCE CALL & WEBCAST AT 5 P.M. (EDT) TODAY - DETAILS BELOW

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) today reported revenue of $40.9 million for its second quarter ended June 30, 2012, up six percent over the $38.5 million recorded in the same period in 2011.

Second quarter ultracapacitor revenue was $24.2 million, up 10 percent sequentially from the $22.0 million recorded in Q112, but slightly lower than the $24.4 million recorded in Q211. Sales of high voltage capacitor and microelectronics products totaled $16.7 million in Q212, up 19 percent from the $14.0 million recorded in Q211.

"Slowing demand in Europe has impacted ultracapacitor revenue growth through the first half of the year, and the outlook there remains uncertain," said David Schramm, Maxwell's president and chief executive officer.  "On the plus side, careful expense controls, strong demand for ultracapacitor products for hybrid electric transit buses and wind turbine blade pitch systems in China and steady performance by our high voltage and microelectronics groups have enabled us to continue growing and improving bottom line performance in a difficult economic environment."

On a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, operating income for the second quarter 2012 was $3.4 million, compared with an operating loss of $1.6 million in Q211. GAAP net income for Q212 was $2.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in Q211.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported operating income of $4.3 million in Q212 compared with operating income of $1.9 million in Q211. Non-GAAP net income for Q212 was $3.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with $1.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share in Q211. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is included as an addendum to this release.

GAAP gross margin was 42 percent in Q212, compared with 40 percent in Q211 and 41 percent in Q112.  GAAP operating expenses totaled $13.5 million, or 33 percent of revenue, in Q212 compared with $17.1 million, or 44 percent of revenue in Q211.  Non-GAAP operating expenses totaled $12.9 million, or 32 percent of revenue, in Q212 compared with $13.7 million, or 36 percent of revenue, in Q211. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $22.3 million as of June 30, 2012, compared with $30.6 million as of March 31, 2012. Complete financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations are available in the company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which was filed today with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

Outlook:  "Based on current order flow and customer forecasts in our core ultracapacitor market segments, we expect sequential top line growth of seven to 10 percent in the third quarter," Schramm said. "That should keep us on track to achieve growth in the range of 15 to as much as 20 percent for the full year and support ongoing improvement in operating performance."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures: The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures for internal evaluation and to report the results of its business. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share. These measures are not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, GAAP. These measures are intended to supplement GAAP financial information, and may be computed differently from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to its management, board of directors and investors about its operating activities and business trends related to its financial condition and results of operations. The Company believes that it is useful to provide investors with information to understand how specific line items in the statement of operations are affected by certain non-cash or non-recurring items, such as:

  • stock-based compensation expense;
  • amortization of intangible assets;
  • expenses in prior periods for legal settlements; and,
  • gains or losses on embedded derivative and warrants in prior periods.

In addition, the Company's management and board of directors use these non-GAAP financial measures in developing operating budgets and in reviewing the Company's results of operations, as non-cash and non-recurring items have limited impact on current and future operating decisions. Additionally, the Company believes that inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with its past reports of financial results. However, investors should be aware that non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to the accompanying tables for a detailed reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP gross profit, operating expenses, income (loss) from operations, net income (loss), and net income (loss) per share.

Management will conduct a conference call and simultaneous webcast to discuss second quarter financial results and the future outlook at 5 p.m. (EDT) today. The call may be accessed by dialing toll-free, (800) 862-9098 from the U.S. and Canada, or (785) 424-1051 for international callers, and entering the conference ID, MAXWELL.
