GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman, April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- O2Micro® International Limited (Nasdaq:OIIM), a global leader in the design, development and marketing of high-performance integrated circuits and solutions, reported its financial results today for the first quarter of 2014, ending March 31, 2014.
Financial Highlights for the First Quarter ending March 31, 2014:
O2Micro International Limited reported Q1 2014 revenue of $16.5 million. Revenue was down 14% sequentially and down 5% from the comparable year-ago quarter. The gross margin in the first quarter of 2014 was 51.5%. The gross margin was up from 50.1% in the prior quarter and up from 50.0% in the first quarter of 2013. The gross margin remains in our target range and varies primarily with revenue level and product mix. During the first quarter of 2014, the company recorded total GAAP operating expenses of $11.6 million, compared to $15.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $14.1 million in the year-ago Q1 period. The respective GAAP operating margins for the first quarter of 2014, the fourth quarter of 2013, and first quarter of 2013 were (18.9%), (28.4%), and (31.2%).
GAAP net loss was $2.9 million in Q1 2014. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $5.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a GAAP net loss of $5.1 million in Q1 2013. GAAP net loss per fully diluted ADS was $0.10 in Q1 2014. This compares to a GAAP net loss per fully diluted ADS of $0.18 in Q4 2013 and a GAAP net loss per fully diluted ADS of $0.17 in Q1 2013.
The company ended the first quarter of 2014 with $72.1 million in unrestricted cash and short-term investments or $2.60 per outstanding ADS. The accounts receivable balance was $8.1 million and represented 49 days sales outstanding at the end of Q1 2014. Inventory was $8.2 million or 87 days and turned over 4.2 times during Q1 2014. As of March 31, 2014, the company had $81.1 million in working capital and the book value was $122.4 million, or $4.42 per outstanding ADS.
As of March 31, 2014, O2Micro International Limited counted 475 employees, including 263 engineers.
"First quarter 2014 revenue of $16.5 million, was at the higher range of the updated guidance that we provided in late March. As previously noted, Q1 revenue was impacted by the combination of weakness in our TV and notebook end markets, as well as production delays in some general lighting customers," said Sterling Du, O2Micro's Chairman and CEO. "Looking forward, we continue to see solid acceptance of our new products in design win activity and we have confidence that our carefully chosen growth drivers, including LED general lighting, backlighting and power management, will lead to growth in our second quarter as we approach our near-term goal of a return to profitability."
