MicroVision Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results

REDMOND, Wash., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display and sensing technology, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.


Revenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $2.0 million, compared to $1.3 million for the second quarter of 2017. MicroVision's net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $8.5 million, or $0.10 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.7 million, or $0.08 per share for the second quarter of 2017.

“I am pleased with the progress we are making with our revised Go-to-Market strategy targeting Tier 1 technology leaders who have the capabilities to leverage our innovative solutions. We entered into a display-only license agreement with a global technology company to address one of our five targeted vertical markets. We remain on track with the $24 million contract we signed in April 2017 and have been advised by our customer that we should expect a product launch sometime in 2019,” said Perry Mulligan, MicroVision’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Over the last two months we also raised cash to bolster our balance sheet through a public stock offering that netted over $16 million. Additionally, the display-only license agreement provided $5 million in license fees in Q2, and is expected to provide another $5 million in Q4,” Mulligan added.

The company has implemented Revenue Standard ASC 606 for the year beginning January 1, 2018. The Company transitioned to the new standard using the full retrospective approach, and per the standard, historical periods have been adjusted as if the new standard was in place for historical periods.
