eMagin Announces Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

August 13, 2015 | By Business Wire News


eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT:EMAN), the leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced financial results and corporate highlights for the second quarter of 2015.

Andrew G. Sculley, President and CEO, stated, “We are pleased the Company increased revenues 17% from first quarter. We equaled last year’s Q2 revenue and earned $0.4 million in positive cash flow (EBITDA), an increase of $1.0 million in cash flow over Q2 last year. Our improved financial results were due to increased contract revenues, and lower manufacturing costs and operating expenses. Also during the second quarter, we made progress in several key areas of the business that we believe position the Company for continued OLED technology leadership and revenue growth. Our work on developing production quantity ultra-high brightness, direct-patterned displays that eliminates the use of color filters progressed during the quarter. This work will result in manufacturable, full-color direct-patterned ultra-high brightness microdisplays that are about 20 times brighter than the typical smart phone display. These ultra-high brightness displays will help accelerate the penetration of our OLED microdisplays into new markets such as avionics and consumer headset applications. eMagin continues to lead the industry in this effort for direct patterned OLED at microdisplay pixel sizes. In addition, we completed our new, advanced HMD “head mounted display” prototype and have been demonstrating it to interested parties which include large tech companies, gaming companies and large chip manufacturers. The headset features 2,000 by 2,000 pixel resolution, a superior form factor, a wide 100+ degree field of view and has all the outstanding attributes of eMagin OLED microdisplays.”

Second Quarter Results

Revenues for second quarter 2015 were approximately $7.0 million equaling approximately $7.0 million for second quarter last year and up approximately 17% over first quarter 2015. Product revenues (primarily display sales) totaled $5.4 million, about 22% less than second quarter last year. R&D contract revenues increased significantly to approximately $1.6 million from approximately $62,000 in second quarter last year. The number of displays shipped decreased and the average selling price decreased slightly from last year. The change in average selling price is a result of changes in product and customer mix.

Gross margin for second quarter was 37 percent on gross profit of $2.6 million compared to a gross margin of 31 percent on gross profit of $2.2 million in second quarter last year. The increase in gross margin from last year was primarily due to increased gross profit from contract revenues, and lower manufacturing costs, including direct labor expense.

Operating expenses for second quarter decreased to $2.7 million from $3.2 million in second quarter last year. Operating expenses are comprised of R&D expenses and selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses. R&D expenses decreased to $0.9 million from $1.3 million in second quarter last year. The decrease was due primarily to the significant increase in funded R&D contracts, which tends to reduce the non-funded internal expense and to the requirements of the respective R&D contracts being worked on in each quarter. SG&A expenses decreased to $1.7 million from $1.9 million in second quarter last year. The $0.2 million decrease of approximately 10% is primarily a result of a decrease in personnel, rent and non-cash compensation costs, and the allowance for doubtful accounts.

Operating profit for the second quarter increased $0.9 million to a loss of $0.1 million from a loss of $1.0 million in second quarter last year. Net loss was $0.1 million or $0.00 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $1.0 million or $0.04 per diluted share in second quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA improved $1.0 million to $0.4 million from a loss of $ 0.6 million in second quarter last year.

At June 30, 2015, the Company had approximately $5.4 million of cash, cash equivalents, and investments in certificates of deposit, compared to $6.0 million at December 31, 2014. The decrease in cash is due primarily investments in capital equipment and an increase in net inventories.

Recent Corporate Highlights

  • Experienced one of the highest display order booking amounts of any quarter in our history.
  • Three out of the top five order bookings were for newly introduced display product offerings.
  • Some of the larger new order bookings we received this quarter include:
    • Two international production orders for new products using our SVGA+ display totaling over $2 million, including a large order from Asia.
    • An international production order using our newly launched DSVGA display.
    • An order for a commercial sight using our newly EAR99-designated VGA display.
    • An order for a strategically important new U.S. Government program.
  • We delivered display subsystems to DARPA for their Computational Weapon Optic program and participated in live fire VIP demos with DARPA which were reported in the press.
  • Dr. Amal Ghosh, eMagin’s SVP R&D and President of SID, delivered the opening address at the Society for Informational Display conference in San Jose and Dr. Margaret Kohin, our SVP Business Development, delivered a keynote speech at SID’s Market Focus Conference on transitioning from head mounted displays for avionics to consumer headsets.
  • eMagin continued deliveries of microdisplay products in second quarter to 75 domestic and international customers and performed funded R&D contract services for 5 customers.
  • The Company produced approximately $1.6 million in R&D contract revenue in second quarter primarily as a result of work on several new multi-year contracts awarded in 2014. This represents a large increase over the approximately $62,000 in R&D contract revenue in second quarter last year.
  • Our newimmersive, VR HMD (virtual reality head-mounted display) is on the path toward full productization. Reviews of the product specification, industrial design, optics and electronics are getting started with the goal of ensuring its suitability for volume production. Work will also begin on enhancing the existing prototypes to make them ready for a possible appearance at The Consumer Electronics Show (CES2016), in January. The headset features 2,000 by 2,000 pixel resolution, a superior form factor, a wide 100+ degree field of view and has all the outstanding attributes of eMagin’s OLED microdisplays. The HMD team continues to demonstrate the headset at conferences, press interviews and to potential partners, and is receiving positive reviews.
  • We delivered ultra-high brightness color displays in the second quarter to customers. These were WUXGA displays made with the equipment we installed last year. We have also delivered ultra-high brightness monochrome displays for aviation customers. Again the interest in these displays confirms that these displays offer advantages for applications that use low efficiency optical systems or must provide augmented reality in the daytime such as avionics and commercial data glass applications.
  • In the second quarter, we continued our program of improving our direct patterned and full color ultra-high brightness OLED microdisplays. Some sample displays have already been sold. The program result will be manufacturable full color ultra-high brightness microdisplays about 20 times brighter than your typical smart phone display with all the advantages of our OLED technology including much better power efficiency.
  • We are selling our ultra-high brightness monochrome green and yellow XLT displays for various applications that require extreme brightness like avionics. This demonstrates our capability to produce ultra-high brightness OLED microdisplays.
  • A new version of the SXGA120 was completed. The new version incorporates higher current capability to support very high brightness levels without compromising uniformity (display quality). Initial samples have been evaluated favorably by a customer, product qualification has been completed, and production release is expected by the end of third quarter.
  • Sample displays using our high brightness color and monochrome white XLS technology were delivered and are being added to the system architecture for both commercial and military applications. As a result of further R&D efforts, the lifetime of our high brightness OLED XLS technology was improved by about 25 percent.
  • First samples of the SXGA096 XLS product are available and product qualification is expected to be completed in November, 2015. The SXGA096 will provide eMagin’s customers with the resolution of an SXGA display but with a smaller form factor and lower cost than larger pixel SXGA displays.


Based on current and forecasted market conditions, expected orders and current backlog, eMagin affirms our previous guidance that we expect revenues will total between $26 million to $29 million in 2015.
