MicroVision Announces Third Quarter 2023 Results

MicroVision, Inc.

REDMOND, WA / ACCESSWIRE / November 8, 2023 / MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in MEMS-based solid-state automotive lidar and ADAS solutions, today announced its third quarter 2023 results.

"We closed the third quarter having made further significant progress toward our 2023 milestones, in particular our automotive design win goal, with a focus on programs involving high-volume passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. Our advanced negotiations with multiple potential customers, centered on RFIs and RFQs for North American and EU markets, have been accelerated due to our product maturity and existing manufacturing capabilities," said Sumit Sharma, MicroVision's Chief Executive Officer. "Also, supporting our diversified lidar and software product portfolio, during the third quarter we secured a path to add to our existing inventory of MOVIA sensors to promote the expansion of our direct sales pipeline."

"We are adjusting our 2023 revenue guidance to a range of $6.5 - 8.0 million as some customers have pushed out their demand due to the challenging macroeconomic environment and other headwinds. As demonstrated in the third quarter, our MOSAIK software suite has delivered excellent margins, but demand for this product has moved into next year," continued Sharma. "We've made tremendous progress this year toward securing customer wins in the near term and we remain enthusiastic about MicroVision's future."

Key Financial Highlights for Q3 2023

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $1.0 million, compared to no revenue in the third quarter of 2022. The revenue in the 2023 third quarter was predominantly comprised of software sales but also includes the sale of lidar hardware to various customers.

  • Net loss for the third quarter of 2023 was $23.5 million, or $0.12 per share, which includes $4.7 million of share-based compensation expense, compared to a net loss for the third quarter of 2022 of $12.9 million, or $0.08 per share, which includes $4.1 million of share-based compensation expense.

  • Gross Profit for the third quarter of 2023 was $0.4 million, compared to $(45) thousand for the third quarter of 2022. Adjusted Gross Profit, a non-GAAP measure, for the third quarter of 2023 was $0.8 million, compared to $(45) thousand for the third quarter of 2022.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2023 was a $16.9 million loss, compared to an $8.5 million loss for the third quarter of 2022.

  • Cash used in operations in the third quarter of 2023 was $20.4 million, compared to cash used in operations in the third quarter of 2022 of $9.0 million. This year-over-year increase was primarily driven by an increase in operating expenses following the January 2023 acquisition.

  • The Company ended the third quarter of 2023 with $78.0 million in cash and cash equivalents including investment securities, compared to $82.7 million at December 31, 2022.

Non-GAAP information

To supplement MicroVision's condensed financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company presents investors with the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted EBITDA" and "adjusted Gross Profit." Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) excluding the impact of the following: interest income and interest expense; income tax expense; depreciation and amortization; bargain purchase gain; and share-based compensation. Adjusted Gross Profit is calculated as GAAP gross profit before share-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangibles included in cost of revenue.

MicroVision believes that the presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends, provides consistency and comparability with MicroVision's past financial reports, and facilitates comparisons with other companies in the Company's industry, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Internally, management uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating operating performance because the exclusion of the items described above provides an additional useful measure of the Company's operating results and facilitates comparisons of the Company's core operating performance against prior periods and its business objectives. Externally, the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit are useful to investors in their assessment of MicroVision's operating performance and the valuation of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of MicroVision's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from its non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent.

The Company compensates for limitations of the adjusted EBITDA measure by prominently disclosing GAAP net income (loss), which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and providing investors with a reconciliation from GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA.

Similarly for Adjusted Gross Profit, the Company compensates for limitations of the measure by prominently disclosing GAAP gross profit which is the difference between Revenue and Cost of revenue, which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and providing investors with a reconciliation by backing out share-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangibles included in cost of revenue.
