Pixelworks Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Results
Mobile Grows 49% Sequentially, Expanding to 22% of Total Revenue
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 11, 2021 – Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of innovative video and display processing solutions, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.
Fourth Quarter and Recent Highlights
Mobile revenue grew 49% sequentially, driven by increased demand from OEM customers in support of recent and upcoming launches of new smartphones
Commenced initial production shipments of new sixth-generation mobile visual processor (i6) to leading smartphone customers in advance of scheduled product launches in early 2021
GAAP gross margin was 45.5% and non-GAAP gross margin was 49.6%
Expanded multi-year collaboration agreement with TCL to incorporate Pixelworks visual processing in next-generation smartphone models featuring TCL’s NXTVISION displays
Closed a strategic private placement round with MTM-Xinhe and other accredited investors as well as a follow-on public offering of stock, generating combined net proceeds of $18.9 million
Ended the quarter with $31.5 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, no long-term debt and no outstanding balance on existing line of credit
“Fourth quarter revenue increased 18% sequentially, driven by second consecutive quarter of solid growth in Mobile and an initial recovery of customer demand in the Projector market,” commented Todd DeBonis, President and CEO of Pixelworks. “Following the pronounced impact the global pandemic had on our target end markets during the year, we’ve begun to observe gradual but improving order patterns from a majority of our lead customers. Specific to our Mobile business, we proactively utilized this period of disruptive market dynamics to become more deeply engaged with our customers on expanded programs aimed at differentiating their next-generation models with exceptional visual display quality. As a result, we have continued to secure a growing number of design-ins on upcoming smartphones that feature industry-leading color accuracy, HDR, higher frame rates and superior gaming performance. Also, during the quarter, we secured additional capital to significantly strengthen our balance sheet in support of expected near-term growth.
“Today, we believe our existing pipeline of active Mobile programs comfortably represents the opportunity to double the number of models launched in 2021 that incorporate Pixelworks’ technology. These collective engagements are comprised of increased penetration at existing customers across multiple tiers and at least two new customers, including our second tier-one mobile OEM. While we expect continued sequential growth in Mobile and improving dynamics in our non-mobile businesses to be offset by seasonality in the first quarter, we believe we are positioned to achieve significant year-over-year growth in our Mobile business as well as on a consolidated basis in 2021.”
Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Results
Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $9.6 million, compared to $8.2 million in the third quarter of 2020 and revenue of $16.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The sequential revenue growth in the fourth quarter was driven by a combination of increased demand for mobile visual processors and an initial recovery of customer orders in the projector market. For the full year 2020, revenue was $40.9 million compared to full year revenue of $68.8 million in 2019. The year-over-year decline in revenue primarily reflects the impact of the global pandemic on end market demand in the projector and video delivery markets.

per share, in the year-ago quarter. GAAP net loss for the full year 2020 was $26.5 million, or ($0.65) per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $9.1 million, or ($0.24) per share, for the full year 2019.
On a non-GAAP basis, fourth quarter 2020 gross profit margin was 49.6%, compared to 55.6% in the third quarter of 2020 and 48.0% in the year-ago quarter. Fourth quarter 2020 non-GAAP operating expenses were $9.5 million, compared to $8.9 million in the third quarter of 2020 and $10.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Non-GAAP gross profit margin for the full year 2020 was 53.8% compared to 52.5% in the prior year. Non-GAAP operating expenses for full year 2020 were $37.3 million compared to $40.6 million in the prior year.
For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company recorded a non-GAAP net loss of $4.9 million, or ($0.11) per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $4.5 million, or ($0.11) per share, in the third quarter of 2020, and a non-GAAP net loss of $2.3 million, or ($0.06) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year 2020, non-GAAP net loss was $15.9 million, or ($0.39) per share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $4.4 million, or ($0.12) per share, in 2019.
Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2020 was a negative $3.8 million, compared to a negative $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2020 and a negative $1.7 million in the year-ago quarter. For the full year 2020, adjusted EBITDA was a negative $11.6 million compared to a negative $0.7 million in the prior year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This earnings release makes reference to non-GAAP gross profit margins, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, which exclude inventory step-up and backlog amortization, amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring expenses, which are all required under GAAP as well as the tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. The press release also makes reference to and reconciles GAAP net loss and adjusted EBITDA, which Pixelworks defines as GAAP net loss before interest income and other, net, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, as well as the specific items listed above.
Pixelworks management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business and establish its operational goals, review its operations on a period-to-period basis, for compensation evaluations, to measure performance, and for budgeting and resource allocation. Pixelworks management believes it is useful for the Company and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information and non-GAAP financial measures to help assess the performance of Pixelworks’ continuing business and to evaluate Pixelworks’ future prospects. These non-GAAP measures, when reviewed together with the GAAP financial information, provide additional transparency and information for comparison and analysis of operating performance and trends. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items to facilitate management’s review of the comparability of our core operating results on a period-to-period basis.
Because the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial results as presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-



GAAP financial measures is included in this earnings release which is available in the investor relations section of the Pixelworks' website.
Safe Harbor Statement

These statements may be identified by use of terms such as “begin,” “continue,” “will,” “expect”, “believe,” “anticipate” and similar terms or the negative of such terms, and include, without limitation, statements about the Company’s digital projection, mobile, and video delivery businesses, including market movement and demand, customer engagements, growth in the mobile market, recovery of the projector market, strategy, and additional guidance, particularly as to the business outlook and current market environment and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the same. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements for purposes of this release, including any projections of revenue or other financial items or any statements regarding the plans and objectives of management for future operations. Such statements are based on management's current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's business. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Actual results could vary materially from those contained in forward looking statements due to many factors, including, without limitation: our ability to execute on our strategy; competitive factors, such as rival chip architectures, introduction or traction by competing designs, or pricing pressures; the success of our products in expanding markets; current global economic challenges; changes in the digital display and projection markets; seasonality in the consumer electronics market; our efforts to achieve profitability from operations; our limited financial resources; our ability to attract and retain key personnel; and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and on our suppliers and customers. More information regarding potential factors that could affect the Company's financial results and could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements is included from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 as well as subsequent SEC filings.
