Sponsored by Businesswire

Everspin Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRAM), the market leader in MRAM, today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Highlights

  • 2020 revenue increased 12.1% year-over-year to $42.0 million
  • Q4’20 GAAP net loss per share of ($0.08) was a significant improvement over both the prior quarter and year-ago periods
  • Generated $0.6 million cash flow from operations in Q4’20, the second consecutive quarter with positive cash flow from operations
  • Ended 2020 with cash and equivalents of $14.6 million
  • First royalty revenue from GLOBALFOUNDRIES for embedded MRAM on their 22FDX process in Q4

“We are happy to report that in Q4 we continued our progress towards driving sustainable cash flow from operations. We are continuing to drive our critical R&D programs and key business initiatives, and we believe that we are positioned for profitable growth,” stated Darin Billerbeck, Everspin’s Executive Chairman and Interim CEO. “Our emphasis on cash management, product cost, and operational excellence have been fundamental to our continued progress.

“We are also pleased to report that, in Q1’21, we received a $3 million up-front payment for a license related to a U.S. Government Rad-Hard program that we anticipate signing before the end of the quarter. The total value of this STT-MRAM development project, including licenses, royalty, and NRE, is greater than $5 million, which we anticipate recognizing as revenue over the course of the next 36 months. We also anticipate additional manufacturing revenue from this program in 2023 and beyond.”

Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2020 Results

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $10.0 million, compared to $10.1 million in the prior quarter and $9.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

GAAP gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2020 was 52.3%, compared to 23.0% in the prior quarter and 53.6% in the fourth quarter of 2019. Fourth quarter of 2020 gross margin included a $0.2 million non-cash charge related to excess and obsolete inventory reserve.

GAAP operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $6.4 million, compared to $6.0 million in the prior quarter and $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. GAAP operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2020 included $1.3 million of stock-based compensation, compared to $0.9 million last quarter and $1.1 million in the year-ago quarter. Stock-based compensation for the fourth quarter of 2020 included a $0.3 million reclassification of cash compensation to stock-based compensation from prior quarters in 2020 related to bonus payments in equity awards rather than cash.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, we recorded a $0.3 million non-cash uncertain tax position related to potential foreign tax liabilities accumulated over the past several years.

GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $1.6 million, or ($0.08) per share, based on 19.0 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $3.9 million, or ($0.21) per share, in the prior quarter, and a GAAP net loss of $3.1 million, or ($0.17) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $0.3 million, compared to a negative ($2.4) million last quarter and ($0.6) million in the prior year period.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2020 increased to $14.6 million compared to $13.9 million at the end of the third quarter of 2020.

Business Outlook

For the first quarter of 2021, Everspin expects total revenue in a range between $10.0 million and $10.8 million, which at the mid-point represents a 2.9% increase over total revenue of $10.1 million in the year-ago quarter. GAAP net loss per share is expected to range between ($0.12) and ($0.06) per share, which reflects expected stock-based compensation expense of approximately $1.0 million.

Preliminary, Unaudited Financial Results

The financial results presented above reflect our preliminary estimates, are based on the information available as of the date hereof and are subject to further review by Everspin and its external auditors. Our actual results may differ materially from these estimates as a result of the completion of our financial closing procedures, final adjustments and other developments arising between now and the time that our financial results for this period are finalized. As a result, investors should exercise caution relying on this information and should not draw any inferences from this information regarding financial or operating data not provided. These preliminary financial results are not meant to be a comprehensive statement of our financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020 and should not be viewed as a substitute for full financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Full audited financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020 will be included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in early March.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) with Adjusted EBIDTA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted for interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring costs if any.

Our management and board of directors use Adjusted EBIDTA to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short-term and long-term operating and financing plans. Accordingly, our management believes that this non-GAAP measure provide useful information for investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and our board of directors, as well as facilitating comparisons of our operating performance on a period-to-period basis.

Non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBIDTA, should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently, which limits the usefulness of these measures for comparisons with such other companies. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
