Interphase Announces Fourth Quarter and 2012 Full Year Financial Results

Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), a diversified information and communications technology company, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $3.2 million, a decrease of approximately 11% when compared to $3.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenues in the quarter were primarily derived from telecommunications product revenues, which decreased to $2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $2.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Services revenues decreased to $710,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $754,000 for the fourth quarter of 2011. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 39% compared to 40% for the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 operating expenses included a $253,000 personnel related restructuring charge. These charges relate to a plan entered into by the Company in October of 2012 intended to result in savings of approximately $1.0 million to $1.6 million of annualized operating costs. The company reported a net loss of $1.2 million, or ($0.17) per share in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or ($0.16) per share in the fourth quarter of 2011.

For the full year of 2012, revenues decreased to $13.9 million, compared to $22.0 million for the full year of 2011. Gross margin decreased to 44% for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to 48% for the year ended December 31, 2011. Net loss for 2012 was $3.8 million, or ($0.54) per share for 2012, compared to a net loss of $505,000, or ($0.07) per share for 2011. On December 31, 2012, the company’s working capital position was $11.6 million, including cash and marketable securities of $8.8 million.

“Our 2012 results reflect a general slowdown in telecommunications spending worldwide,” said Gregory B. Kalush, CEO and President of Interphase. “While our top-line was significantly impacted in 2012 by this slowdown, we made good progress toward executing upon our strategy of building future revenue streams that are less dependent upon a single market and a small group of customers for our success. During 2012 we made excellent progress in building a foundation for our engineering design and manufacturing services business which should result in solid revenue growth in 2013 for this business. In fact, we expect that the revenue generated from manufacturing services in the first quarter of 2013 alone will nearly equal the amount generated in all of 2012. Additionally, we are very excited to announce that we have made terrific progress on our penveu® product, and are currently building the pre-production run of penveu. These units will satisfy our needs for beta testing which we expect to begin in the first quarter.”
