TechFaith Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

BEIJING, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company") today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

For the first quarter of 2012, TechFaith reported net revenue of US$42.7 million compared to US$81.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 and US$78.7 million in the first quarter of 2011.  This is in line with the Company's prior guidance which stated that revenue in the first quarter of 2012 would be in the range of US$41 million to US$45 million. The revenue decline is primarily due to the material impact of seasonality, higher competition and lower demand levels for mobile phones in China.  Gross profit for the first quarter of 2012 was US$10.8 million, compared to US$19.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 and US$25.3 million in the first quarter of 2011.  Gross margin for the first quarter of 2012 was 25.4%, compared to 23.4% in the fourth quarter of 2011 and 32.1% in the first quarter of 2011.  The decline in gross margin on a sequential and year-over-year basis is attributed to lower revenue and increased unit costs.  Net loss attributed to TechFaith for the first quarter of 2012 was US$0.4 million, or a US$0.01 loss per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS, compared to net income of US$2.7 million, or US$0.05 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS in the fourth quarter of 2011, and net income of US$13.8 million or US$0.26 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS in the first quarter of 2011.

Ms. Ouyang Yuping, TechFaith's Chief Financial Officer, said, "We had an extremely challenging quarter for our business as lower demand in our Original Developed Product (ODP) segment, combined with our fixed operating costs structure, resulted in a net loss for the quarter.  Our operating structure is able to support revenues considerably higher than US$100 million per quarter, which results in absorption issues with the current lower revenue levels.  We are working to better align our resources to the current business environment, including potential cost reduction measures. "

Mr. Deyou Dong, President and Chief Operating Officer of TechFaith, said "Our focus is on continuing to develop commercially attractive mobile phones and phones targeting niche segments, like our ruggedized outdoor smart phones.  We will continue to work to expand our sales volumes through our unique ruggedized smart phones and our branded mobile phones business which can contribute to our long-term strategy."

Mr. Defu Dong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TechFaith, said, "For our game business, we intend to focus on strengthening and building up our customer base. We have successfully navigated business cycles before and are confident we can adjust our business to current demand levels."   

Second Quarter of 2012 Outlook

The below forecast is TechFaith's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change. TechFaith currently expects total revenue for the second quarter of 2012 to be in the range of US$32.0 million to US$36.0 million.
