(EDT) TODAY - DETAILS BELOW  PR Newswire  SAN DIEGO, July 31, 2014  SAN DIEGO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) today reported revenue of $46.1 million for its second quarter ended June30, 2014, up slightly from the $46.0 million recorded in the first quarter ended March31, 2014, but down 17 percent from the $55.6 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013.  Enabling Energy's Future.  Second quarter ultracapacitor revenue increased by 6 percent sequentially to $33.9 million, compared with $32.0 million in the first quarter ended March31, 2014, but was down 14 percent compared with the $39.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013. Sales of high voltage capacitor and microelectronics products totaled $12.2 million in Q214, down 13 percent sequentially from the $14.0 million recorded in the first quarter and down 26 percent from the $16.4 million recorded in Q213.  "This was a solid quarter in line with our expectations despite lower ultracapacitor sales into the hybrid bus market in China and challenging market conditions for our microelectronics products," said Dr. Franz Fink, Maxwell's president and CEO. "Increasing sales for wind energy and electric rail applications were mainly responsible for the sequential growth in ultracapacitor sales."  On a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, operating loss for the second quarter 2014 was $567,000, compared with operating income of $760,000 in Q114 and $4.2 million in Q213. GAAP net loss for Q214 was $1.2 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with net income of $319,000, or $0.01 per diluted share in Q114 and $3.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in Q213.  On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported operating income of $599,000 in Q214 compared with $1.5 million in Q114 and $5.2 million in Q213. Non-GAAP net loss for Q214 was $15,000, or zero cents per share, compared with net income of $1.1 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in Q114 and $4.4 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in Q213. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is included as an addendum to this release.  GAAP gross margin was 36 percent in Q214, compared with 39 percent in both Q114 and Q213. GAAP operating expenses totaled approximately $17.2 million, or 37 percent of revenue, in Q214 compared with $17.1 million, or 37 percent of revenue, in Q114, and $17.4 million, or 31 percent of revenue, in Q213. Non-GAAP operating expenses totaled approximately $16.2 million, or 35 percent of revenue, in Q214 compared with $16.6 million, or 36 percent of revenue, in Q114 and $16.7 million, or 30 percent of revenue, in Q213. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $30.7 million as of June30, 2014, compared with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $32.6 million as of March31, 2014. Complete financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations will be available with the filing of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the Securities & Exchange Commission.  Outlook: Limited visibility into the plug-in hybrid bus market in China makes it difficult to forecast ultracapacitor sales with a high degree of certainty. Based on customer forecasts for bus and other ultracapacitor applications and order flow for microelectronics and high voltage capacitor products, total revenue for the third quarter is likely to be down as much as 15% compared with that recorded in the second quarter.  Non-GAAP Financial Measures: The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures for internal evaluation and to report the results of its business. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share. These measures are not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, GAAP. These measures are intended to supplement GAAP financial information, and may be computed differently from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to its management, board of directors and investors about its operating activities and business trends related to its financial condition and results of operations. The Company believes that it is useful to provide investors with information to understand how specific line items in the statement of operations are affected by certain non-cash or non-recurring items, such as stock-based compensation expense.  In addition, the Company's management and board of directors use these non-GAAP financial measures in developing operating budgets and in reviewing the Company's results of operations, as non-cash and non-recurring items have limited impact on current and future operating decisions. Additionally, the Company believes that inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provide consistency and comparability with its past reports of financial results. However, investors should be aware that non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to the accompanying tables for a detailed reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP gross profit, operating expenses, income from operations, net income, and net income per share.  Management will conduct a conference call and simultaneous webcast to discuss second quarter of 2014 financial results and the future outlook at 5 p.m. (EDT) today.
