TechFaith Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

16 Aug, 2012, 06:30 ET from China TechFaith Wireless Technology Limited

BEIJING, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company") today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

For the second quarter of 2012, TechFaith reported revenue of US$32.4 million compared to US$42.7 million in the first quarter of 2012 and US$82.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. This is in line with the Company's prior guidance for revenue in the second quarter of 2012 to be in the range of US$32.0 million to US$36.0 million. The revenue decline is primarily due to increased levels of competition for the Company's high-end smart phones.  Gross profit for the second quarter of 2012 was US$7.3 million, compared to US$10.8 million in the first quarter of 2012.  Gross margin for the second quarter of 2012 was 22.6%, compared to 25.4% in the first quarter of 2012.  The decline in gross margin is mainly due to lower revenue and pricing pressure resulting from the competitive environment.  Net loss attributed to TechFaith for the second quarter of 2012 was US$0.7 million or US$0.01 loss per basic and diluted ADS, compared to a net loss of US$0.4 million or US$0.01 loss per basic and diluted ADS in the first quarter of 2012.

Miss Ouyang Yuping, TechFaith's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Revenue in the quarter came in at the lower end of our guidance due to continued weakness in our ODP and branded mobile phone business.  We expect that the mobile phone business environment will remain extremely difficult in the near-term.  The impact of lower revenue in the quarter and increasing competition again impacted our gross margin and resulted in a net loss for the quarter.  We continue to evaluate and work to adjust our resources to better meet the current challenging business environment."

Mr. Deyou Dong, President and Chief Operating Officer of TechFaith, said, "Our focus remains on developing unique smart phones and mobile devices targeting niche and enterprise segments.  We understand the market and our business is in a period of contraction.  We remain focused on working closely with customers to develop the tailored solutions they need.  TechFaith's ability to service these market segments will ultimately help us stabilize our business level and return to both revenue growth and profitability."   

Mr. Defu Dong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TechFaith, said, "As part of our ongoing strategic review and efforts to restore our business growth, we have started to shift our gaming business focus from hardware sales to software packages and applications. We believe that these changes will help us strengthen our user base and ultimately revitalize this business segment."

Third 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 third quarter of 2012 to be in the range of US$ 30.0 million to US$ 35.0 million.
