SAN JOSE, Calif., October 29, 2020
– Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of innovative video and display processing solutions, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.
Third Quarter and Recent Highlights
Mobile revenue grew more than 230% sequentially, driven by increased shipments in support of a growing number of smartphones launched by new and existing mobile OEM customers
GAAP gross margin was 48.5% and non-GAAP gross margin was 55.6%, reflecting sustained progress on product cost reduction initiatives and a favorable product mix
Combination of new and existing Mobile OEM customers launch three new phones incorporating Pixelworks advanced visual processing technology, the ASUS ZenFone 7 flagship 5G smartphone, the Coolpad Legacy Brisa and the OnePlus 8T smartphone
Formally launched and secured initial design-ins for sixth-generation mobile visual processor, the first Pixelworks visual processor to leverage innovative, low-power Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology
Entered into securities purchase agreement with MTM-Xinhe Investment Limited, a consortium of strategic investors in China, to enhance mobile strategy and customer base in China
Appointed Dr. Alan Zhou as Executive VP, President of China in support of strategic and mobile growth initiatives in Asia
Ended the third quarter with $16.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, with an additional $6.6 million in cash from the MTM-Xinhe private placement investment anticipated to close in November 2020.
“Although the overall environment has remained challenging, particularly in our Projector and Video Delivery markets, customers’ order patterns began to stabilize during the third quarter in conjunction with early indications of a bottom in end market demand. Our previous actions to aggressively contain costs have enabled us to minimize cash burn, as we’ve continued to focus on and advance our growth initiatives in Mobile and for our TrueCut platform solutions,” stated Todd DeBonis, President and CEO of Pixelworks.
“Our Mobile business returned to sequential growth in the quarter, as we continued to expand the number of year-to-date wins on smartphones launched by a growing list of mobile OEM customers. We have also maintained a very healthy pipeline of engagements comprised of next-generation programs with existing customers as well as programs with multiple new customers, including a second tier-one mobile OEM. Additionally, we recently hired Dr. Alan Zhou as Executive VP, President of China as part of our effort to strengthen the strategic position of our mobile business and expand the capabilities of Pixelworks operations in China.
“While we anticipate the recovery in our mature markets to be gradual, we remain well positioned with a compelling portfolio of visual processing solutions to capitalize on the dominant market trends in mobile, as OEMs increasingly push to incorporate 5G, HDR, higher frame rates and superior gaming performance across multiple tiers of smartphones.”
Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Revenue in the third quarter of 2020 was $8.2 million, compared to $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2020 and revenue of $18.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. The sequential and year-over-year decline in revenue reflected a combination of inventory corrections and the impact of the global pandemic on end market demand in the projector and video delivery market, partially offset by a sequential increase in shipments of visual processing solutions in the mobile market.
On a GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the third quarter of 2020 was 48.5%, compared to 54.6% in the second quarter of 2020 and 51.8% in the third quarter of 2019. Third quarter 2020 GAAP operating expenses were $12.1 million, compared to operating expenses of $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2020 and $11.8 million in the year-ago quarter.
