Adesto Technologies Announces Second Quarter Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adesto Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:IOTS), a leading provider of application-specific, feature-rich, ultra-low power non-volatile memory products, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Second Quarter and Recent Highlights:

  • Revenue was $10.3 million, compared to $10.2 million in the first quarter 2016 and $10.6 million in the second quarter 2015;
  • GAAP gross margin was 46.0%, compared to 49.1% in the first quarter of 2016 and 39.6% in the second quarter of 2015;
  • Secured 59 new design wins across the industrial, consumer, communications and automotive markets for a total of 88 year-to-date; and
  • Closed on a $20 million debt facility.

Commenting on the quarter, Narbeh Derhacobian, Adesto’s president and CEO, stated, “Results in the second quarter met our expectations with revenue reflecting the anticipated softer demand in the consumer and computing markets. We continued to make notable progress during the quarter on our design win momentum across all of our end markets, achieving a record number of quarterly design wins. The industrial end market represented the largest number of new wins, followed by the consumer market. Similar to the trend we saw in 2015, the consumer market represented the largest percentage of our estimate of the total dollar value opportunity, reflecting efforts to further expand our revenue opportunities in high-volume consumer applications. As an example, we recently gained strong traction with several high profile devices, including a personal tracking device as well as a wristband in support of a recently popular gaming application.

“In addition to our design wins progress, we also introduced new product families within our DataFlash and Standard Serial Flash product groups -- the first of which was specifically designed to target the Smart Meter market in China. The new products within our Standard Flash family are an extension of our strategy to pursue higher unit volume opportunities and further diversify our business, while also mitigating end market cyclicality over time.”

Mr. Derhacobian concluded, “As we look to the second half of the year, variability in customer forecasts across our end markets is warranting a more cautious view. We continue to believe we are well positioned with customers across our product portfolio, and our ramping design wins will serve as a key catalyst to future growth. With the recent closing of the debt facility, our business is fully funded, enabling us to remain focused on executing our growth initiatives.”

Second Quarter 2016 Results
Revenue in the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was $10.3 million, compared to $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $10.6 million in the second quarter of 2015.

GAAP gross margin in the second quarter of 2016 was 46.0%, compared to 49.1% in the first quarter of 2016 and 39.6% in the second quarter of 2015. The sequential decrease was due primarily to product mix weighted towards the lower margin consumer market.

GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $4.3 million, or $0.29 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.10 per share, in the first quarter of 2016 and GAAP net loss of $1.8 million, or $3.14 per share, in the second quarter of 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was a loss of $2.7 million, compared to a loss of $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2016 and a loss of $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2015.

On a non-GAAP basis, net loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $3.1 million, or $0.21 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.16 per share, in the first quarter of 2016 and a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.15 per share, in the second quarter of 2015.

A reconciliation of our GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $14.1 million as of June 30, 2016, compared to $19.2 million as of March 31, 2016. After the end of the second quarter, the Company closed on a $20 million senior secured debt facility, refinancing Adesto’s then outstanding borrowings of $10.5 million.

Business Outlook
For the third quarter of 2016, the Company expects revenue to grow to a range between $10.8 million and $11.2 million. GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 45% and 47%, GAAP operating expenses are expected to range between $8.5 million and $8.8 million and non–GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $7.4 million and $7.7 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share and non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to help us evaluate growth trends, establish budgets, measure the effectiveness of our business strategies and assess operational efficiencies. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items:

  • Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation expenses from our non-GAAP financial measures. Although stock-based compensation is an important part of our employees’ compensation affecting their performance, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.
  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets from our non-GAAP financial measures. Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets is a non-cash expense, and it is not part of our core operations. Investors should note that the use of acquisition-related intangible assets contributed to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to future period revenues as well.
  • Revaluation of preferred stock warrants: We have excluded the effect of the revaluation of preferred stock warrants from our non-GAAP financial measures. Revaluation of our preferred stock warrants is a non-cash expense and we evaluate our financial performance excluding the impact of any revaluation of preferred stock warrants. Upon the completion of our initial public offering in October 2015, all preferred stock warrants converted to common stock warrants, as a result there will be no preferred stock revaluation income or expense in future periods.
  • Extraordinary gains from dispute settlements: We have excluded the effect of the gain on settlement of an alleged liability with a former foundry supplier from our non – GAAP financial measures. The gain on settlement is a non-cash gain, is not a recurring event and is not part of our core operations and was excluded when evaluating our financial performance.

Our non-GAAP Financial Measures are described as follows:

  • Non-GAAP net loss and net loss per share. Non-GAAP net loss is net loss as reported on our condensed consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the revaluation of preferred stock warrants and extraordinary gains from dispute settlements. Non-GAAP net loss per share is non-GAAP net loss divided by non-GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Non-GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding was computed to give effect to the conversion of all outstanding convertible preferred stock which occurred in connection with our initial public offering in October 2015, as if conversion had occurred at the beginning of the period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is net loss as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of the same items excluded from the calculation of non-GAAP net loss as well as interest expense, depreciation and amortization, and our provision for income taxes.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information.”
