iGO Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

iGO Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iGO, Inc. (Nasdaq:IGOI), a
leading provider of eco-friendly power management solutions and accessories
for mobile electronic devices, today reported financial results for the third
quarter ending September 30, 2013.

Revenue was $3.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, compared with $7.9
million for the same period of the prior year. The decline in revenue is
primarily attributable to lower sales of power products.

Net loss was $4.8 million, or ($1.65) per share, in the third quarter of 2013,
compared with a net loss of $1.8 million, or ($0.64) per share, in the same
quarter of the prior year.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had $9.3 million in cash, cash
equivalents, and short-term investments, and no debt.

Following is a breakdown of year-over-year revenue trends in the Company's
major product categories:

  *Power products – Sales of power products were $2.9 million for the third
    quarter of 2013, compared with $6.2 million for the third quarter of 2012.
  *Audio products – Sales of audio products were $339,000 for the third
    quarter of 2013, compared with $643,000 for the third quarter of 2012.
  *Rechargeable alkaline batteries – Sales of rechargeable alkaline batteries
    were $149,000 for the third quarter of 2013, compared with $645,000 for
    the third quarter of 2012.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2013 was (13.8)%, compared with 19.0%
for the third quarter of 2012. The decrease in gross margin is primarily due
to increased warranty charges, increased inventory write downs, and labor and
overhead costs being spread over reduced revenue compared to the same quarter
of the prior year.

Total operating expenses were $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2013,
compared with $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase is
primarily due to severance and transaction expenses related to the change of
control that occurred during the third quarter of 2013.

products, the size and timing of customer orders, our ability to effectively
manage inventory levels, delay or failure to fulfill orders for our products

problems, the degree and rate of growth in our markets and the accompanying
demand for our products, our ability to expand our internal and external sales

returns; design and performance issues with our products; liability claims;
our failure to expand or protect our proprietary rights and intellectual
property; intellectual property infringement claims against us;; our ability
to secure additional financing to meet our future capital needs; increased
