Financial Results

Revenues were $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 as compared to $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2015 were mainly comprised of sales of XTouch sensors to a Tier 1 PC OEM customer.

Cost of revenues was $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as the Company incurred startup costs and underutilized fixed overhead costs at its Colorado Springs production facility, which the Company expected in the initial manufacturing phase. Cost of revenue includes certain non-cash charges, including amortization and depreciation of equipment as well as other non-cash charges, which totaled $1.0 million during the second quarter of 2015. Excluding these non-cash charges, adjusted cost of revenues was $2.4 million.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense was approximately $3.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to $3.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as the Company transitioned from a pre-production stage company to an integrated sales and marketing organization.  SG&A includes certain non-cash charges, including depreciation, stock-based compensation and severance, which totaled $2.1 million during the second quarter of 2015, and $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2014. Excluding these non-cash charges, adjusted SG&A was $1.6 million during the second quarter of 2015, and $1.3 million during the second quarter of 2014.

Research and development ("R&D") expense during the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $1.5 million compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014. R&D includes certain non-cash charges, including severance and stock-based compensation, which totaled $0.3 million during the second quarter of 2015, and $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2014. Excluding these non-cash charges, adjusted R&D was $1.2 million during the second quarter of 2015, and $0.8 million during the second quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP metric (see Table A), for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $(3.8) million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(2.1) million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Net loss from continuing operations was $(7.0) million, or $(0.52) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2015, as compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $(4.4) million, or $(0.36) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Loss on discontinued operations was $(8.7) million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, as compared to a loss on discontinued operations of $(1.7) million for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Net loss was $(15.7) million, or $(1.17) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2015, as compared to a net loss of $(6.1) million, or $(0.49) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  

Management Discussion

Jeffrey A. Hawthorne, president and chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, "The second quarter of 2015 was an important quarter in the history of the Company. We have transitioned from a technology development company to a fully integrated sales and marketing organization with a focus on driving consistent revenue growth. Revenue for the second quarter was substantially higher than the first quarter as we shipped a significantly larger number of our sensors for use by our Tier 1 OEM customers. Our manufacturing facility in Colorado Springs is operational and we expect that it will become increasingly more efficient in the coming quarters as we fully integrate the new manufacturing technology."

"This was a quarter that set our direction for the coming years," continued Mr. Hawthorne. "We have integrated the acquired wire mesh touch screen technology into our existing technology which, we believe, has yielded a superior and differentiated product. Our Diamond Guard technology will allow OEMs to replace cover glass in certain applications to produce devices that are lighter, thinner and more price competitive. We have ample manufacturing capacity that can scale up without a large investment in the coming years. We have added tenured leadership to our management team with the additions of Jalil Shaikh as our chief operating officer, Brett Gaines as our vice president of sales and marketing, and Christine Russell as our chief financial officer. We believe we are on a path to become integrated into more touch screen applications, which will yield increased revenue in the coming years."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company has provided the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release and the accompanying table. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to analyze its operating performance and liquidity and believes they are useful to investors as a supplement to GAAP measures in analyzing, trending and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA (loss) to exclude discontinued operations, debt issuance cost amortization, gain on change in warranty liability, accretion of discount on convertible notes, interest expense on convertible note, depreciation, amortization of licenses, non-cash stock-based compensation, restricted stock issuance expense and severance. The Company believes that the use of adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and other users of its financial statements in evaluating the Company's operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. Management does not place undue reliance on adjusted EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. For reconciliation under GAAP to the Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA see Table A that is included in the tables accompanying this release.
