UniPixel Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

UniPixel and Kodak Install and Commission First Two Printing Lines at the Eastman Business Park Rochester Facility

THE WOODLANDS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 11/07/13 -- UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of Performance Engineered Films(TM) to the touch screen, flexible printed electronics, and lighting and display markets, reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Third Quarter 2013 Highlights


 
--  Installed and commissioned two printing lines at the Kodak Rochester
    facility, a state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing facility within
    the Eastman Business Park in Rochester, New York. Along with the
    existing printing line at UniPixel's Texas facility, this brings the
    total number of operational printing lines to three, with each capable
    of producing 1 million units or square feet per month in a
    roll-to-roll process.
    
    
--  Rebranded the company's UniBoss touch sensor film as InTouch
    Sensors(TM). UniPixel and its development and manufacturing partner
    have additionally cobranded the new name as "InTouch Sensors(TM)
    Powered by Kodak," which reflects the synergistic contributions each
    company brings to this new touch-screen sensor solution.
    
    
--  Installed and commissioned two plating lines that were delivered to
    UniPixel's Texas facility during the quarter, bringing the total
    plating lines commissioned at its Texas facility to three.
    
    
--  Received four new plating lines modified with UniBoss technology at
    Kodak Rochester facility, which are planned for installation and
    commissioning during the current quarter.
    
    
--  Expanded UniPixel's IP portfolio with a new patent issued, as well as
    submitting three new patent applications. The company's IP portfolio
    currently totals three issued patents and 95 patent applications
    submitted. Enhancing the IP portfolio remains a priority for creating
    strategic value and establishing barriers to entry, and there are
    currently more than 30 patent applications the company is preparing to
    submit.

Q3 2013 Financial Summary In the third quarter of 2013, the company did not generate revenues as it focused on advancing the manufacturing build-out and market introduction of its InTouch Sensors. In the first nine months of 2013, revenue totaled $5.1 million, as compared to $74,124 in the same year-ago period. The increase for the first nine months of 2013 was primarily due to a $5.0 million payment received by the company's PC OEM licensee.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses in the third quarter of 2013 totaled $2.5 million, as compared to $0.8 million in same year-ago quarter. SG&A expenses in the first nine months of 2013 totaled $6.8 million, as compared to $2.6 million in the same year-ago period. The increase of SG&A in both periods was primarily due to an increase in salaries and benefits, partially driven by an increase in restricted stock expense, the number of employees, and stock compensation expense, as well as an increase in legal expenses and depreciation and amortization expenses, with an increase of employee performance bonus expense occurring in the first nine months of 2013.

Research and development expenses in the third quarter of 2013 totaled $2.8 million as compared to $1.2 million in the same year-ago quarter. Research and development expenses in the first nine months of 2013 totaled $7.3 million, as compared to $3.5 million in the same year-ago period. The increase in both periods was primarily due to increased salaries and benefits, as well as lab expense related to prototype development of products based on the company's performance engineered films.

Net loss was $5.3 million or $(0.44) per share in the third quarter of 2013, as compared to a net loss of $2.0 million or $(0.24) per share in the same year-ago quarter. Net loss was $9.0 million or $(0.80) per share in the first nine months of 2013, as compared to a net loss of $6.1 million or $(0.80) per share in the same year-ago period.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $46.6 million at September 30, 2013, as compared to $13.0 million at December 31, 2012.

Management Commentary "In Q3, we made significant progress towards the worldwide market introduction of our InTouch Sensors," said Reed Killion, president and CEO of UniPixel. "During the quarter we continued to focus our efforts on the production level process qualification and data collection to achieve ISO 9000 and 14000 certifications. The progress we have made has been monitored and supported by our Preferred Price and Capacity Licensees. We've recently installed semi-automated testers to augment testing until we have automatic roll-to-roll electronic testers up and running at the Kodak Rochester facility and our Texas facility.

"We continued to ramp equipment capacity with the delivery of four plating to the Kodak Rochester facility during the third quarter, which are now being installed and commissioned for our high-volume roll-to-roll manufacturing process. We expect these plating lines to be qualified in the current quarter. Our goal in terms of equipment capacity is to reach machine capacity of 1.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. Throughout the rest of 2014, we're still planning to build out equipment capacity lines to support increasing anticipated demand, with this accomplished by adding plating lines at the Rochester site which is capable of supporting 15 plating lines. We will also focus on increasing throughput via continuous process improvement.

"In collaboration with Kodak, we are also exploring the potential of two additional manufacturing locations in South Korea and China. Due to the relatively small manufacturing infrastructure footprint and tremendous amount of value our process can produce, we have received multiple inquiries from companies regarding Far East partnerships, licenses and joint ventures.

"The multi-million dollar milestone payment UniPixel received under its preferred price and capacity license agreement has helped fund the build-out of InTouch Sensor production lines and allowed us to leverage our PC OEM's world-class resources around supply chain management, operations, engineering and production core competencies.

"Our first InTouch Sensors order from our PC OEM partner announced this morning marks another major milestone in the successful global market introduction of our InTouch sensor technology.

"We currently have more than 20 active customer engagements, from smartphones to all-in-ones on the consumer electronics front that include OEMs, display and panel manufacturers, ODMs and touch panel module converters. Based on interest and meetings with partners and potential customers, as well as receiving our first purchase order, we continue to expect the start of production revenue in the current quarter and ramping production revenue throughout 2014."
