President and CEO of Pixelworks, Todd DeBonis, commented, “I’m pleased with our team’s execution in 2018, as we demonstrated substantial progress on both operational improvements and our growth objectives. In addition to the successful integration of ViXS Systems, we ramped a meaningful number of programs at new and existing customers across our targeted end markets. Notably, we maintained our investments in research and development in support of future growth, while also generating positive adjusted EBITDA and cash flow from operations for the year. In late December, we entered into an agreement to monetize non-strategic patents acquired as part of ViXS, which will result in recognizing a net gain of $3.9 million for the transaction in the first quarter of 2019 - further underscoring the realized value from this highly-accretive transaction for Pixelworks.
“2018 was also a transformative year in our Mobile business with announced wins on five smartphones, two of which were launched in the fourth quarter. Awareness and interest in our Iris family of mobile visual processors continue to build, and we exited the year with the strongest pipeline of active engagements to-date. Further highlighting our recent momentum, most recently we announced an agreement with HMD Global to incorporate Pixelworks’ Iris solution into a broad range of next-generation Nokia smartphones.
“In our Video Delivery business, we continue to see strong demand from our lead Japanese consumer electronics customers for our XCode family of transcoding solutions for ADSB-compatible 4K set-top-boxes and advanced PVRs. Initial uptake for these devices has been strong, and we expect healthy follow-on orders as OEM customers replenish the sales channel in order to meet future consumer demand in Japan.”
DeBonis, concluded, “Looking to 2019, we are focused on realizing the next leg of growth and targeting expanded opportunities across flagship and mid-tier mobile devices as well as next-generation consumer platforms for high-quality video streaming and delivery. As we ramp our growing pipeline of customer engagements and additional production orders, we expect to drive continued year-over-year growth in both our Mobile and Video Delivery end markets.”
