MicroVision Announces Second Quarter 2023 Results

REDMOND, WA / ACCESSWIRE / August 8, 2023 / MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in MEMS-based solid-state automotive lidar and ADAS solutions, today announced its second quarter 2023 results.

"We are pleased with our forward momentum over the quarter and the uptick in inbound inquiries during the first half of 2023. Our deepening engagement with automotive OEMs includes opportunities for high-volume passenger vehicle programs as well as commercial vehicle programs seeking unique solutions. Our product offering gives us an array of strategic inroads as potential customers find our products compelling, inviting opportunities in automotive and industrial markets and allowing us to broaden our work with OEMs," said Sumit Sharma, MicroVision's Chief Executive Officer. "During the second quarter, we also strengthened our balance sheet, demonstrating to OEMs and other prospective customers and partners our financial strength and ability to scale multiple projects. While the challenging macro-economic environment caused headwinds that led some non-automotive customers to push out delivery requirements, we remain on track to delivering our 2023 development milestones."

"This quarter we continued to deliver technological progress, in particular demonstrating our sensor fusion software operating at speeds as high as 130 km/h," continued Sharma. "We made progress in the first half of this year, driven in part by the integration of products, technologies, and teams acquired from Ibeo Automotive earlier this year and we remain enthusiastic about MicroVision's future."

Key Financial Highlights for Q2 2023

  • Revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was $0.3 million, flat as compared to the second quarter of 2022. The revenue in the second quarter was primarily connected to the Ibeo acquisition and includes the sale of lidar hardware and related software to various customers.
  • Net loss for the second quarter of 2023 was $20.6 million, or $0.12 per share, which includes $3.0 million of a one-time gain included in other income due to early lease termination incentive offset by a $3.9 million share-based compensation expense, compared to a net loss for the second quarter of 2022 of $13.6 million, or $0.08 per share, which includes $4.1 million of non-cash, share-based compensation expense.
  • Adjusted Gross Profit for the second quarter of 2023 was $0.0 million, compared to $0.3 million for the second quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2023 was a $15.2 million loss, compared to a $9.2 million loss for the second quarter of 2022.
  • Cash used in operations in the second quarter of 2023 was $16.6 million, compared to cash used in operations in the second quarter of 2022 of $9.7 million. This year-over-year increase was primarily driven by the increased operating expenses driven by the acquisition in January 2023.
  • The Company ended the second quarter of 2023 with $93.9 million in cash and cash equivalents including investment securities, compared to $82.7 million at December 31, 2022.

Non-GAAP information

To supplement MicroVision's condensed financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company presents investors with the non-GAAP financial measure "adjusted EBITDA" and "adjusted Gross Profit." Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) excluding the impact of the following: interest income and interest expense; income tax expense; depreciation and amortization; and share-based compensation. Adjusted Gross Profit is calculated as GAAP gross profit before stock-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangibles included in cost of revenue.

MicroVision believes that the presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends, provides consistency and comparability with MicroVision's past financial reports, and facilitates comparisons with other companies in the Company's industry, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Internally, management uses this non-GAAP measure when evaluating operating performance because the exclusion of the items described above provides an additional useful measure of the Company's operating results and facilitates comparisons of the Company's core operating performance against prior periods and its business objectives. Externally, the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit are useful to investors in their assessment of MicroVision's operating performance and the valuation of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of MicroVision's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from its non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent. The Company compensates for limitations of the adjusted EBITDA measure by prominently disclosing GAAP net income (loss), which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and providing investors with a reconciliation from GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA.

Similarly for Adjusted Gross Profit, the Company compensates for limitations of the measure by prominently disclosing GAAP gross profit which is the difference between Revenue and Cost of revenue, which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and providing investors with a reconciliation by backing out stock-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangibles included in cost of revenue.
