PR Newswire

SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2013

SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON),
the provider of verykool® wireless handset solutions, today announced results
for its first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

"Although we had encouraging data points this quarter including a record
number of verykool® handsets shipped, improved sequential gross margin and
decreased total operating expenses, more needs to be done in all areas to
bring our company to profitability," said Joseph Ram, president and CEO of
InfoSonics. "The restructuring we did during the quarter helped decrease our
operating expenses compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 by 15% and we should
receive additional benefit from the restructure in the second quarter. We are
also examining other opportunities to streamline our operations and further
reduce costs without inhibiting our ability to grow sales in key markets. On
a sequential quarter basis, our net sales were seasonally down in the first
quarter compared to the preceding quarter. However, we increased our gross
margin percentage from 16.0% to 17.7% and, despite lower net sales, reported
slightly higher gross profit. We expect that the large R&D investment we made
last year will result in the introduction of new innovative products to our
portfolio, such as the RS75 we announced yesterday. In the coming week, we
plan to introduce another new android‑based smartphone that will be our most
powerful to date."

InfoSonics reported net sales for the first quarter of 2013 of $7.8 million,
which represented a $4.5million, or 37%, decline from $12.3 million for the
first quarter of 2012. The primary reason for the decline was the absence of
low-margin Samsung distribution sales in the first quarter of 2013 compared to
$2.5million in distribution sales in the first quarter of 2012. We
transitioned away from this low-margin business in March 2012. In addition,
during the first quarter of 2013, sales of private label products were
negligible, compared to $3.4 million of private label sales in the EMEA and
APAC regions in the first quarter of 2012. Partially offsetting these
declines, verykool® branded sales grew $1.4 million, or 22%, from $6.4 million
in the first quarter of 2012 to $7.8 million in the first quarter of 2013.

Gross profit margin as a percent of sales in the first quarter of 2013 was
17.7% compared to 18.3% in the 2012 first quarter. The decline in gross
margin year over year resulted from the change in the mix of products shipped
and the impact of promotional pricing to spur sales of older products. The
private label sales in the 2012 first quarter generated higher margins than
the pure branded sales in the 2013 first quarter, while the Samsung
distribution sales in the 2012 first quarter generated substantially lower
margins. Gross profit in the first quarter of 2013 was $1.4million, a 39%
decline from $2.3 million in the 2012 first quarter.

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2013 of $2.1 million rose 3%
compared to the 2012 first quarter. This reflects a 10% increase in SG&A
expenses primarily attributable to increases in professional fees, marketing,
sales commissions and other personnel costs. The increases were partially
offset by a 20% decrease in R&D expenses as a result of the restructuring of
our development team accomplished over the course of the 2013 first quarter.

The net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.7 million, or $0.05 per
share, compared to net income of $105,000, or $0.01 per share, in the first
quarter of 2012.

At March 31, 2013, the Company had $15.7 million in working capital, including
$4.7 million in cash, and no outstanding indebtedness. Cash and restricted
cash balances declined by $1.5million compared to the December 31, 2012
balances primarily as a result of the growth in prepaid inventories and the
loss for the quarter.
