Intermolecular Announces Full Year and Fourth Quarter 2012 Results Addition and Expansion of Customer Programs Drove 24% Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth, and Non-GAAP Net Income in 2012 SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intermolecular, Inc. (Nasdaq:IMI)-accelerating research and development (R&D) for semiconductor and clean energy industries-today announced results for its full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. Full Year 2012 Results For the year ended December 31, 2012, revenue was $66.8 million, representing 24% growth over revenue of $53.8 million in 2011. Net loss for 2012 was $(0.8) million, or $(0.02) per share, compared with a net loss of $(38.7) million, or $(3.99) per share for 2011. Intermolecular reports revenue, cost of revenue, gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share in accordance with GAAP and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP measures, as well as a description of the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures, is included in the financial statements portion of this press release. Non-GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $2.9 million or $0.06 per share. This compared with non-GAAP net loss of $(0.8) million or $(0.09) per share for 2011. "We executed our plan in 2012, making significant progress across our portfolio of customer collaborative development programs, diversifying our business with nearly 180% year-over-year growth in clean energy, and further strengthening our world-class team and capabilities of our HPC innovation platform," said David Lazovsky, President and CEO of Intermolecular. "We are well-positioned for continued growth over the next several years. As customers commercialize technologies resulting from our collaborations, licensing and royalties will continue to grow as a percentage of revenue. We are proud of the results achieved by our team in 2012, reflected, in part, by the Company's patent portfolio which has grown to 1,000 US patents and applications, and was recently ranked 7^th in IEEE's Patent Power scorecard for semiconductor manufacturing." Fourth Quarter 2012 Results Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $17.4 million, representing 15% growth over revenue of $15.1 million in the same period a year ago. Collaborative development program (CDP) revenue was $11.6 million for the quarter, compared to $10.6 million in the prior year, reflecting the ramp of Intermolecular's development program for advanced logic semiconductors, and significant expansion of its clean energy business. Licensing and royalty revenue was $5.8 million, compared to $3.9 million for the same period a year ago, and included a buy-out of IP by First Solar. As reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company reported net income of $0.5 million or $0.01 per share for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $(25.6) million, or $(1.19) per share for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2011 included a $25.3 million, non-recurring expense that the Company recognized upon completion of its IP asset purchase agreement with Symyx. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.5 million or $0.03 per share. This compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.2 million or $0.00 per share for the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company ended 2012 with total backlog of $77.2 million, of which $44.6 million is expected to be recognized as revenue in 2013. This backlog amount does not include any incremental bookings since December 31, 2012 or any forecast for future volume-based royalty streams. Outlook for First Quarter 2013 The following statements are based on current expectations for the first quarter of 2013. *Intermolecular projects revenue in the range of $16.5 to $17.0 million. This revenue projection includes $13.7 million from reported backlog as of December 31, 2012. *Non-GAAP net loss, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, is projected between $(0.5) million and breakeven, or between $(0.01) to $0.00 per share, on approximately 49 million shares outstanding.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not serve as an alternative to GAAP and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies. These results should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. We believe that our non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations because the non-GAAP measures exclude charges that management considers to be outside of Intermolecular's core operating results. We believe that the non-GAAP measures of revenue, cost of revenue, gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share, viewed in combination with our financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, provide investors with additional perspective and a more meaningful understanding of our ongoing operating performance. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures to review and assess financial performance, to determine executive officer incentive compensation and to plan and forecast performance in future periods.
