2019-08-02 21:00 9413

TAIPEI, , Aug. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced its second-quarter 2019 unaudited financial results.

Comments from Management

In the first half of year 2019, we continued devoting efforts to optimizing our product portfolio, building up brand strength and enhancing operational efficiency. For our business in licensed games, the successful launch of Senran Kagura: New Link in April has brought us a satisfactory amount of revenues in its introductory stage, while two underperforming games were terminated.

For in-house offerings, besides improving the existing self-developed games, we also have made progress in developing a new casual games platform, aiming to launch it in the second half of 2019. "As discussed in previous release guidance, we put emphasis on enhancing our in-house products. The direct investment into in-house product development was over $600 thousand in the first half of 2019, which was 9.5% higher than in the same period last year," said GigaMedia CEO James Huang.

We were also developing a customer platform, which will contribute to our operations in establishing relationships, saving marketing costs, and creating capacity for providing augmented products and services. "The customer platform is currently under small-scale test-run, but we believe the growing interaction of the customer platform and our wide range of diverse game offerings will generate synergistic effect for one another in the future," said CEO James Huang.

"The numbers might look similar as in prior quarters," stated CEO James Huang, "but the robustness is now exhibited in our operations, and momentums have gradually accumulated."

Second Quarter Overview

  • Operating revenues increased by approximately 18% quarter-on-quarter, to $1.8 million from $1.5 million last quarter, and 5.49% year-over-year from $1.7 million the same period last year. The increase was mainly attributable to Senran Kagura, a new game launched in April.
  • Gross profit increased slightly to $0.8 million from $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2019.
  • The net asset value was $5.15 per share.

Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results

GigaMedia Limited is a diversified provider of digital entertainment services. GigaMedia's digital entertainment service business FunTown develops and operates a suite of digital entertainments in Taiwan and Hong Kong, with focus on browser/mobile games and casual games.

Second-Quarter Financial Results

  • Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of 2019 increased by 18% quarter-on-quarter to $1.8 million from $1.5 million in last quarter, and by 5.49% year-over-year from $1.7 million the same period last year, due to a boost from Senran Kagura, a new game launched in April that generated cash revenues of $1.0 million, where $0.4 million were deferred to next quarter in accordance with accounting requirements. Revenues from other games decreased mainly due to seasonality.
  • Consolidated gross profit was $0.8 million, slightly increased quarter-on-quarter and year-over-year. The gross margin rate was slightly lower due to initial costs incurred for the launch of a new game.
  • Consolidated operating expenses were $1.9 million, or increased by 12.1% the second quarter of 2019, comparable to that in last quarter, and decreased by 8.7% if compared to that in the same period last year, reflecting an increase marketing expenses for the launch of Senran Kagura, and certain general expenses incurred in this quarter.
  • Consolidated loss from operation of the second quarter of 2019 was $1.1million, an increase of $0.2 million loss from the first quarter of 2019.
  • Net loss in the second quarter of 2019 was $0.6 million, comparable to a net loss of $0.5 million in the first quarter this year, and slightly improved from a net loss of $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2018.  
  • Cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents at the end of the second quarter of 2019 amounted to $58.0 million, slightly decreased by 0.8% from $58.5 million as of the end of the first quarter of this year.

Financial Position

GigaMedia maintained its solid financial position, with cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents amounted to $58.0 million, or $5.25 per share, as of June 30, 2019.

Business Outlook

The following forward-looking statements reflect GigaMedia's expectations as of August 2, 2019. 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 2018 Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as referenced below, actual results may differ materially.

In the second half of 2019, we will continue to improve productivities of the existing games, in which the newly launched Senran Kagura and our female-oriented games are expected to contribute soundly to our revenues. We are also optimistic with the renovations of our in-house casual game offerings with customer platform, which will gradually accumulate to an upward trend for us.

"We are leveraging our deep expertise in self-developed games and creating an advanced framework for promoting customer relationships. We believe that loyal customer base will eventually help to boost in revenues and profits," stated CEO James Huang.

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

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.
