Tessera Technologies Announces First Quarter 2013 Results - Quarterly Dividend Declared - Business Wire SAN JOSE, Calif. -- April 25, 2013 Tessera Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSRA) (the “Company” or “we”) announced its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Total revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $31.1 million. Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $44.6 million, or $0.85 per basic share. This net loss includes non-recurring charges of $22.4 million, $6.4 million in amortization of acquired intangibles, and $2.5 million of stock based compensation. Tax adjustments in the first quarter of 2013 for Non-GAAP items were $6.1 million. Therefore, non-GAAP Loss was $19.4 million or $0.36 per share. Year over year Comparison In the first quarter of 2012, total revenue was $46.7 million. Compared with our first quarter revenue of $31.1 million, this is a decrease in total revenue of $15.6 million. The decline was due to a decrease in the Intellectual Property business revenue of $13.4 million and a decrease in the DOC revenue of $2.2 million. In the Intellectual Property business, the Company’s revenue went from $39.0 million to $25.6 million year over year, a decrease of $13.4 million, which was due to the absence of royalty revenue from Micron Technology, Inc., whose license agreement expired in May of 2012, and Powertech Technology Inc. (PTI), who defaulted on payments. We are currently in negotiations with Micron for two new license agreements that give it access to our Tessera, Inc. and Invensas Corporation patent portfolios. With regards to PTI, we are in litigation with the company and believe we have a strong case. In the DigitalOptics business, the Company’s revenue went from $7.6 million to $5.5 million year over year, a decrease of $2.2 million, which was due to lower revenues from the Company’s image enhancement technologies and weaker demand for the Company’s Micro-Optics products. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $19.4 million or $0.36 per basic share. Non-GAAP net income/loss is defined as income/loss and operating expenses adjusted for restructuring and other exit costs, acquired intangibles amortization, charges for acquired in-process research and development, stock-based compensation expense, impairment charges on long-lived assets and goodwill, and related tax effects. “Our first quarter of 2013 was a very difficult quarter for us,” said Richard S. Hill, interim CEO of Tessera Technologies, Inc. “The confluence of a costly proxy battle, PTI’s decision to default on their contract and Micron’s decision to not renew their contract made it difficult to meet last year’s performance metrics.” Hill continued, “On the brighter side, we signed SK hynix to two new eight-year patent license agreements to our Tessera, Inc. and Invensas Corporation portfolios, which will begin contributing to our recurring revenue in the second quarter, and, as recently announced this week, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. signed a multi-year license for our Face Detection and Face Tracking software, which will be used in the newly launching Samsung Galaxy S® 4 smartphones.” Balance Sheet Total current assets were $431.2 million at March 31, 2013, a decrease of $44.0 million from Dec. 31, 2012. Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $402.7 million at March 31, 2013, a decrease of $39.9 million from Dec. 31, 2012. The quarter over quarter decrease resulted from a combination of the cash loss from operations of $33.0 million, $5.3 million of dividend payments, $5.6 million of capital expenditures, and $600,000 of intellectual property purchases. Quarterly Cash Dividend On March 28, 2013, $5.3 million was paid to stockholders of record as of March 7, 2013, for the quarterly $0.10 per share of common stock cash dividend. On April 23, 2013, the board of directors declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per share of common stock for the second quarter, payable on June 13, 2013, for stockholders of record at the close of business on May 23, 2013. Financial Guidance “Starting with this quarter, we are re-initiating financial guidance for one quarter out. This guidance will quantify the following lines on the P&L statement: revenue, operating expenses, assumed tax rate, earnings after tax, and earnings per share,” stated Hill. For the second quarter of 2013, the Company’s guidance is as follows: The Company expects total revenue for the upcoming Second Quarter of 2013 to range between $42 million and $50 million. Intellectual Property revenue is expected to range between $38 million and $45 million. The Company expects DigitalOptics revenue in the range of $4 million to $5 million. GAAP operating expenses are expected to range between $77 million and $81 million, which includes expected litigation expenses of between $16 million and $20 million, and restructuring and impairment charges of between $5.5 million and $6.5 million. The Company’s assumed tax rate is 30%. GAAP loss per share is expected to range between $0.40 and $0.45. Hill continued, “As the Intellectual Property business is composed of both recurring revenue and “episodic” revenue, we have decided to experiment with additional guidance for our stockholders to help them understand the true economic potential of the business. Beginning this quarter, we are going to quantify the revenue potential we see from our episodic sources, that we can reasonably expect to materialize over the next 12 months. Our episodic revenue forecast is in excess of $200 million over the next 12 months, of which at least $19 million is expected in the second quarter of 2013.” Recurring revenue is defined as revenue from payments made pursuant to a license agreement or other agreement that are scheduled to occur over at least one year of time. Episodic revenue is revenue other than revenue payable over at least one year pursuant to a contract. Episodic revenue includes non-recurring engineering fees, initial license fees, back payments resulting from audits, damages awards from courts or other tribunals, and lump sum settlement payments. Although the royalty revenue reported by our licensees quarterly is generally not assured, for ease of reference, we refer to these revenues as “recurring revenue.” Importantly, a source of episodic revenue may become a source of recurring revenue, when, for example, a company settles litigation with the Company by paying a settlement amount and entering into a license agreement that calls for an initial license fee and ongoing royalty payment over several years. In that scenario, the settlement amount would be episodic revenue, as would the initial license fee, and the ongoing royalties would be recurring revenue.
