Second-Quarter Financial Results

  • Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of 2016 were $2.1 million; this compared to $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2015. The quarter-on-quarter revenue decrease reflected the low season of gaming business in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
  • Consolidated gross profit for the second quarter of 2016 was $1.1 million; this compared to $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2015.
  • Consolidated operating expenses were $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2016, comparing with the second quarter of 2015, the expense decreased 42% from $4 million to $2.3 million, primarily due to reduced selling and marketing expenses as well as general and administrative expenses; about 40 percent of the expense was cut down in both sectors.
  • Consolidated loss from operations was $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2016, an increase of $0.8 million quarter-on-quarter mostly due to the expenses of selling and marketing.
  • Consolidated non-operating expenses/income during the second quarter of 2016 was a loss of $0.9 million due to equity in loss earnings on the investment of East Gate and Double2, compared to an income of $1.5 million from the disposal of property and investment of PerfectPairs in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Consolidated net income for the second quarter of 2016 was a loss of $2.1 million, compared to an income of $ 1.1 million in the previous quarter and an income of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2015.

Financial Position

As of June 30, 2016, GigaMedia had $71.6 million in cash, restricted cash and marketable securities-current approximately $6.48 per share, compared to $73.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2016, which mostly reflecting the net cash used in operating activities. Short-term debt was $5.8 million at the end of the second quarter, a decrease from $6.2 million of last quarter was due to the loan repayment of $0.6 million.

Business Outlook

The following forward-looking statements reflect GigaMedia's expectations as of August 5, 2016. Given potential changes in economic conditions and consumer spending, the evolving nature of online games, and various other risk factors, including those discussed in the Company's 2015 Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as referenced below, actual results may differ materially.

As of 30 June, 2016, the new mobile game Shoumetsu Toshi has been launched for a month; the revenue of first month after launch was approximately $0.2 million; the average monthly revenue per paying user was $16.11 and monthly pay rate was about 5.6%. For Yume 100, the revenue of second quarter 2016 was approximately $0.9 million; the average quarterly revenue per paying user was $72.5 and quarterly pay rate was about 8.27%, this compared to the revenue of first quarter 2016 was approximately $1.2 million; the average quarterly revenue per paying user was $95 and quarterly pay rate was about 5.58% in the second quarter of 2016.

With the product exposure on television commercial and offline events and the coming of summer vacation, we expect revenue will be boosted in the third quarter of 2016. At the same time, the Company aims to seek more good-quality titles and expect to launch new games in the next half year. With regards to social casino games, servers and databases will be integrated to maintain operational stability and continue content optimization.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement GigaMedia's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with US GAAP, the company uses the following measure defined as non-GAAP by the SEC: EBITDA. Management believes that EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is a useful supplemental measure of performance because it excludes certain non-cash items such as depreciation and amortization and that EBITDA is a measure of performance used by some investors, equity analysts and others to make informed investment decisions. EBITDA is not a recognized earnings measure under GAAP and does not have a standardized meaning. Non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. A limitation of using EBITDA is that it does not include all items that impact the company's net income for the period. Reconciliations to the GAAP equivalents of the non-GAAP financial measures are provided on the attached unaudited financial statements.
