GigaMedia Announces Second-Quarter 2020 Financial Results

TAIPEI, July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced its second-quarter 2020 unaudited financial results.

Comments from Management

In the second quarter of 2020, GigaMedia reported revenues of $1.83 million, with a gross profit $0.98 million, an operating loss of $0.55 million and the net loss of $0.42 million. Total revenues increased by 13.8% if compared to the previous quarter.

“In spite of the ongoing disruption of the pandemic to our operations, we have achieved clear improvements,” said GigaMedia CEO James Huang. “We have reshaped our cost structure and remodeled our marketing strategies, thereby approximately halved the operating loss if comparing to the same quarter last year.”

“And we are also enhancing the playability and stickiness of FunTown M, our in-house developed mobile platform of casual games,” continued GigaMedia CEO James Huang, “which will be the most crucial piece to fall in place for our turning profitable beyond just break-even.”

Second Quarter Overview

  • Operating revenues increased by approximately 13.8% quarter-on-quarter, to $1.83 million from $1.60 million in last quarter, and 4.3% year-over-year from $1.75 million the same period last year. The increase was mainly attributable to our efforts in revitalizing Tales Runner, a 14-year-old licensed game we operate in Hong Kong.
  • Gross profit increased slightly by 5.5% to $0.98 million from $0.93 million in last quarter, and increased by 27.2% compared to $0.77 million in the same period last year.
  • The net asset value was $4.96 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 2020 increased by 13.8% quarter-on-quarter to $1.83 million from $1.60 million in last quarter, and by 4.3% year-over-year from $1.75 million the same period last year.
  • Consolidated gross profit was $0.98 million, increased by 5.5% quarter-on-quarter and 27.2% year-over-year.
  • Consolidated operating expenses were $1.53 million, comparable to the first quarter of 2020 and decreased by 19.3% if compared to the same period last year, which reflected a decrease in marketing expenses and general expenses.
  • Consolidated loss from operation of the second quarter of 2020 was a loss of $0.55 million, reflecting an improvement from a loss of $0.64 million in the first quarter.
  • Net loss in the second quarter of 2020 was $0.42 million, increasing from a net loss of $0.29 million in the first quarter this year mainly due to lower interest income and exchange loss in this quarter. 
  • Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at the end of the second quarter of 2020 amounted to $56.8 million, slightly decreased by 0.9% from $57.3 million as of the end of the first quarter.

Financial Position

GigaMedia maintained its solid financial position, with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash amounted to $56.8 million, or $5.14 per share, as of June 30, 2020.

Business Outlook

The following forward-looking statements reflect GigaMedia’s expectations as of July 30, 2020. 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 2019 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 2020, we will continue improving productivities of the existing games, in which FunTown M, our own mobile platform of casual games, is expected to begin contributing to our revenues. Along with our various product lines and customer platform, we will gradually accumulate the momentum to an upward trend.  

Meanwhile, our management continues evaluating and pursuing prospects of strategic investment targets that are with potential to expand our business and create greater shareholder value.

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.
