2021-03-31 21:46 2386

TAIPEI, March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2020.

Highlights for Year Ended December 31, 2020

For 2020, GigaMedia reported revenues of $6.9 million, with a gross profit of $3.9 million, an operating loss of $2.2 million and the net loss of $1.3 million.

"In spite of a slower fourth quarter, GigaMedia closed 2020 with encouraging results as a whole," said GigaMedia CEO James Huang. "Wider customer base, sustainable revenues, and higher profitability. With our internally-driven growth, improved cost structure and effective marketing, we have been steadily delivering our strategy and making good progress."

Compared to the prior year, the 2020 performance exhibited overall improvements. Our gross margin rate has risen by 3.1% to 57.0% from 53.9% in 2019, and consequently the gross profit increased by 9.4% while the revenues slightly increased by 3.5%. The loss from operations was also cut by 28.6% from $3.0 million in 2019, and the net loss narrowed by 22.0%.

Meanwhile, in 2020 GigaMedia has entered and executed a purchase agreement to acquire ownership of $10 million principal amount of convertible promissory note issued by Aeolus Robotics Corporation ("Aeolus"), an R&D company engaged in developing AI-enabled service robots. We have made an announcement for this strategic investment on August 31, 2020, immediately after the closing of the agreement. The issuance of this convertible note provided Aeolus its much-needed working capital, and through this funding, GigaMedia is exploring possibilities of further strategic cooperation with Aeolus.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Overview

  • Consolidated 4Q revenues decreased by 30.1% quarter-on-quarter mainly due to seasonality, and by 5.7% year-over-year as certain of our licensed games have entered the decline stage. Full year revenues increased 3.5% to $6.9 million from $6.6 million in 2019.
  • Loss from operations for 4Q was $0.6 million, representing a loss increase from $0.4 million in 3Q, mainly due to a decrease in gross profit and an increase in selling and marketing expenses. Full year operating loss was $2.2 million, representing a loss reduction of $0.9 million from approximately $3.0 million for 2019.
  • The net asset value was approximately $4.89 per share as of the end of 2020.

Financial Position

GigaMedia maintained its solid financial position. Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash amounted to $46.0 million, or approximately $4.16 per share, along with zero bank loan. Our shareholders' equity was approximately $54.1 million of as of December 31, 2020.

Business Outlook

The following forward-looking statements reflect GigaMedia's expectations as of March 31, 2021. Given potential changes in economic conditions and consumer spending, the evolving nature of digital entertainments, and various other risk factors, including those discussed in the Company's 2019 Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as referenced below, actual results may differ materially.

"Evidently, GigaMedia has been moving steadily towards break-even and beyond," said CEO James Huang. "In 2021, we continue to boost productivities by introducing fast-paced playability, enhancing new comer accessibility, and promoting customer relationships."

Meanwhile, our business strategies always include expanding through mergers and acquisitions. "We will also continue reviewing strategic opportunities that would enable us to accelerate our growth and enhance shareholders' value," stated CEO James Huang.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement GigaMedia's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. 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.
