Revenue of $7.7 million, up 44 % year-over-year and 15% sequentially from Q1

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 13, 2020 / eMagin Corporation, or the "Company", (NYSE American:EMAN), a leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays used in Military and Commercial AR/VR devices, and other near-eye imaging products, today announced results for the second quarter 2020.

"We have been deemed an essential business by the U.S. government and as such, have continued to manufacture and ship products during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite operating with an enhanced number of employee health and safety measures including social distancing, we were still able to significantly increase our revenue in the quarter both sequentially and year-over-year," said CEO Andrew G. Sculley. "Our revenue increased 44% on a year-over-year basis and 15% sequentially, at the high end of our guidance that we gave on July 22nd. In addition to our revenue growth, we had solid bookings and growth of our backlog to $14.5 million of which $13.2 million is shippable within the next twelve months. Our quarterly operating loss declined from $2.9 million in 2019 to $1.3 million. Because of the significant opportunities related to our direct patterning technology (" dPdTM") and the progress that we have been making, we increased our R&D activities and expenditures during the quarter."

"We received a significant affirmation of the strength of our products and technology in the quarter from the U.S. government. In the past two months, we received two Department of Defense awards totaling $39.1 million. eMagin is the only US manufacturer of OLED microdisplays and our displays are used in many important U.S. Military programs."

"The funding provided by these awards will enable us to procure key equipment and tooling, including dPd equipment, and we are currently defining the specifications and expect to place orders for new equipment beginning in the next few weeks. Our first deliveries of equipment under this three-year program would most likely occur in the second quarter of 2021. Upon receipt of the equipment, there is typically an additional period needed to test and qualify the machinery and the processes. The production tool for dPd is expected to be functional and manufacturing qualified products in the third quarter of 2023."

"We have several contracts with Tier One customers in the consumer space and are seeing renewed or increased interest in our dPd technology from these and other high-profile Tier One players. We believe that our technology can be broadly applied and licensed to other OLED manufacturers, and is ideal for AR/VR."

"During the quarter, we continued to ship a significant amount of product for the ENVG-B program as well as produce displays for the F-35 program. Our success in these programs has led to additional design work as well as significant new bookings for other military programs worldwide. We have a number of new customers and projects spanning a broad range of applications from military and medical to law enforcement, industrial, and consumer."

"In terms of operations, we have fabricated full color displays using the newly upgraded and installed dPd tool in the second quarter. We plan to ship in small quantities to customers in the third quarter," continued Mr. Sculley. "In addition, we are continually making improvements in production processes. Despite some delays earlier in the quarter related to COVID-19, our manufacturing line and production equipment have been running without major issues. We are in the process of implementing some of the processes from our yield improvement efforts and we have initiated an effort to explore an overall productivity improvement in the operations area that we believe has the potential to significantly impact the bottom line."

"At the end of the quarter, we had $5.4 million in cash, and borrowings outstanding and borrowings available under our ABL facility of $0.4 million and $3.1 million, respectively. Included in this amount is $1.96 million from a PPP loan, which the Company will use to maintain full employment and expects to be forgiven."

"Subsequent to the quarter, we further strengthened our overall financial position as we were awarded funds over a three year period from the Department of Defense for new equipment and tooling. Finally, we raised an additional $6.5 million remaining under our ATM facility which improves our liquidity."

"I want to again extend our thanks and appreciation to our team members at eMagin. This has been a very challenging environment, but the teams have not let this significantly impact our production and ongoing success," concluded Mr. Sculley.

Second Quarter Results
Total revenues for the second quarter of 2020 were $7.7 million, an increase of approximately $2.3 million from revenues of $5.4 million reported in the prior year period, and an increase of $1.0 million from the first quarter of 2020.

Total revenue consists of both product revenue and contract revenue. Product revenues for the second quarter of 2020 were $6.3 million, an increase of $1.3 million from product revenues of $5.0 million reported in the prior year period. The increase in display revenue for the quarter resulted from increased demand from military customers and higher average selling prices. The increase in product revenue was achieved despite some minor disruptions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. Contract revenues were $1.4 million compared to $0.4 million reported in the prior year reflecting the contribution from contract R&D work for the consumer market.

Total gross margin for the second quarter was 26% on gross profit of $2.0 million compared to a gross margin of 4% on gross profit of $0.2 million in the prior year period. The total gross margin of 26% in the second quarter of 2020 reflects favorable margins on contract revenues for the consumer market. Second quarter 2020 product gross margin of 20% compares favorably to 1% in the prior year which was impacted by lower throughput due to manufacturing challenges that had continued from the first quarter of 2019.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020, including R&D expenses, were $3.3 million as compared to $3.1 million reported in the prior year period. Operating expenses as a percentage of sales were 43% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 57% reported in the prior year period. R&D expenses were higher in the second quarter, primarily reflecting a focus on R&D projects related to dPd technology and our XLE display development, partially offset by costs charged to contract R&D work for the consumer market. SG&A expenses were slightly lower in the second quarter versus the year ago period due to salary reductions implemented in October 2019, a reduction in non-cash stock compensation for the Board of Directors implemented in December 2019 and lower travel and other discretionary expenses.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $1.3 million compared to an operating loss of $2.9 million in the prior year period. Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $2.8 million or $0.05 per share compared to a loss of $2.3 million or $0.05 per share in the prior year period. Net loss for the current and prior year periods reflects a $1.5 million non-cash loss and $0.5 million non-cash gain related to the change in fair value of a warrant liability, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA the second quarter was negative $0.8 million compared to a negative $2.3 million in the prior year period.

At June 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5.4 million and working capital of $12.0 million. Borrowings and availability under the ABL facility were $0.4 million and $3.1 million respectively at June 30, 2020. In December 2019, eMagin entered into an At the Market sales agreement with H.C. Wainwright & Co. for the sale of common stock. During the quarter, the Company raised $1.8 million under its ATM facility.

Outlook for third quarter
At June 30, 2020, the Company's backlog of open orders was $14.5 million, including $13.2 million shippable within twelve months. This compares to a backlog of orders shippable within twelve months of $11.7 million as of December 31, 2019. As deemed an essential business, the Company continues to ship and produce product and has not experienced any major material supply chain disruptions.
