NETLIST REPORTS SECOND QUARTER, SIX-MONTH RESULTS

 

Year-over-Year Revenues for Second Quarter Up 193 Percent; Margins Increase; Qualification Activity for HyperCloud™ Accelerate and NetVault™ NV Battery-Free Begins to Ship in Volume

 

IRVINE, CA (August 11, 2010) . . . Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended July 3, 2010.

 

Revenues for the second quarter ended July 3, 2010, were $9.3 million, up 193 percent from revenues of $3.2 million for the second quarter ended July 4, 2009.  Sequentially, revenues improved 17.9 percent from the $7.9 million in revenues for the first quarter ended April 3, 2010.  Gross profit for the second quarter ended July 3, 2010, was $1.8 million, or 19.5 percent of revenues, compared to a gross profit of $0.2 million, or 7.7 percent of revenues, for the second quarter ended July 4, 2009.

 

Net loss for the second quarter ended July 3, 2010, was $4.0 million, or $0.16 loss per share, compared to a net loss in the prior year period of $4.0 million, or $0.20 loss per share.  These results include stock-based compensation expense in the second quarter ended July 3, 2010, of $0.4 million compared with $0.3 million in the prior year period.

 

We saw growth from our base business as the sales for NetVault battery-backed products increased substantially from the previous quarter.  We also began initial shipments of the new NetVault battery-free product to Dell and saw significant progress with HyperCloud qualification activities, Chief Executive Officer C.K. Hong said.

 

“HyperCloud has been undergoing extensive testing at many targeted customers and the feedback continues to validate the benefits of this technology in servers and the datacenter environment.  We look forward to seeing a ramp in demand for HyperCloud products in the coming months.  In parallel with the technical marketing activity, weve commenced product development on next-generation HyperCloud and NetVault in order to meet planned qualification windows in the first half of 2011,” said Hong.

 

Revenues for the six months ended July 3, 2010, were $17.2 million, up 222 percent from revenues of $5.3 million for the six months ended July 4, 2009.  Gross profit for the six months ended July 3, 2010, was $3.6 million, or 21.1 percent of revenues, compared to a negative gross profit of $0.3 million, or a negative gross margin of 5.5 percent of revenues for the six months ended July 4, 2009.

 



 

Net loss for the six months ended July 3, 2010, was $6.9 million, or $0.31 loss per share, compared to a net loss in the prior year period of $7.8 million, or $0.39 loss per share.  These results include stock-based compensation expense in the six months ended July 3, 2010, of $0.8 million compared with $0.6 million in the prior year period.

 

As of July 3, 2010, cash, cash equivalents, and investments in marketable securities were $23.1 million, total assets were $39.5 million, working capital was $24.2 million, total debt was $0.1 million, and stockholders’ equity was $29.4 million.
