1234 Days ago

Flash Array Customer Recently Qualifies 256Mb STT-MRAM

CHANDLER, Ariz., Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everspin Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRAM), the world's leading developer and manufacturer of discrete and embedded MRAM, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Flash array customer qualification of 40nm 256Mb STT-MRAM for use in NVMe storage array as highlighted at MRAM Developer Day and the Flash Memory Summit
  • Extension of 200mm Toggle fab lease into 2021
  • Total revenue of $10.8 million
  • Ending quarter cash balance of $32.7 million

“I’m pleased to announce the results of our second quarter. This was our first full quarter of STT-MRAM production shipments, in which the qualification of our 256Mb STT-MRAM was completed by a leading enterprise storage provider.  We also continued to drive the adoption of STT-MRAM through our partnership with SMART Modular,” said Kevin Conley, Everspin’s President and CEO.

“Everspin and our partners showcased this exciting STT-MRAM technology in product applications at the inaugural MRAM Developer Day and Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara this week. Most notably, our flash array customer unveiled its newest NVMe storage array, clearly demonstrating the value of our technology’s low latency and data persistence. The increased attention on MRAM at these events highlights the importance of MRAM technology as it is adopted into mainstream applications.  We are encouraged by this enthusiastic interest and the high level of activity, which we believe demonstrates the meaningful progress MRAM is making as an emerging technology.

“Our focus in the coming quarter is on growing and maturing customer engagements around our 256Mb STT-MRAM parts and continued improvements in our Toggle manufacturing capabilities.”

Second Quarter Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $10.8 million compared with $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $14.9 million in the first quarter of 2018, which included $5.5 million of licensing, royalty and other revenue.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2018 was 49.0%, compared with 65.0% in the second quarter of 2017 and 67.0% in the previous quarter. The sequential and year-over-year decline in gross margin was primarily attributable to lower licensing, royalty and other revenue in the second quarter of 2018.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $11.8 million, compared with $10.6 million in the year-ago quarter and $11.1 million in the previous quarter.

Net loss per share for the second quarter of 2018 was $6.6 million, or ($0.40) per share, based on 16.6 million weighted-average shares outstanding, compared with a net loss of $5.2 million, or ($0.42) per share, in the second quarter of 2017 and a net loss of $1.3 million, or ($0.09) per share, in the first quarter of 2018. The sequential change in loss per share in the second quarter of 2018 reflects a reduction in licensing revenue compared with the previous quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2018 were $32.7 million as compared to $33.9 million at the end of the first quarter of 2018, reflecting the licensing payment collected from the Alps agreement signed at the end of the first quarter, offset by cash used in operations.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2018, Everspin expects revenue to range between $10.6 million and $11.0 million. This revenue range reflects expectations for MRAM revenue to grow approximately 8% sequentially, offsetting an anticipated decline in legacy product sales. Net loss per share is expected to range between ($0.34) and ($0.30) based on an average-weighted share count of 16.9 million shares outstanding.
