SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 6, 2013 — Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a pioneer in innovative video and display processing technology, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
Second quarter 2013 revenue was up 15.5% to $9.6 million, compared to $8.3 million reported in the prior quarter and $15.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. The sequential increase in revenue was due to increased sales of chips for both Projectors and TVs. Revenue declined compared to the prior year quarter primarily as the result of lower licensing revenue during the second quarter.
On a GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2013 was 48.4%, compared to 48.1% in the prior quarter and 49.3% in the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter 2013 GAAP operating expenses were $9.3 million, compared to $9.5 million in the previous quarter and $8.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. For the second quarter of 2013, the Company recorded a GAAP net loss of $4.9 million, or $0.26 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $5.4 million, or $0.29 per share in the first quarter of 2013 and a GAAP net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share in the second quarter of 2012.
On a non-GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2013 was 49.7%, compared to 49.7% in the prior quarter and 50.6% in the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter 2013 operating expenses on a non-GAAP basis were $8.7 million, compared to $8.8 million in the prior quarter and $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase in operating expenses was primarily due to higher net investment in research and development during the second quarter. For the second quarter of 2013, the Company recorded a non-GAAP net loss of $4.2 million, or $0.23 per share, compared with a net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.25 per share, in the prior quarter and a net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per share, in the second quarter of 2012.
“Growth resumed in the second quarter as order patterns improved, and we expect a significant increase in third quarter revenue driven by an improving environment, ramping of the PA168 advanced video processor and success in our licensing initiative,” said Bruce Walicek, President and CEO of Pixelworks. “We are seeing outstanding demand for Pixelworks’ Video Processing Technology, which is proving to be essential for delivering the highest video quality as resolution requirements increase across a growing number of displays.”
The Company will discuss the details of its business outlook for the third quarter of 2013 during its conference call scheduled for today, August 6, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
