Resonant Inc. Provides Business Update and Reports Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

 

·                  Enters into securities purchase agreement with a Tier One strategic partner

 

GOLETA, CA — August 6, 2019 - Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a leader in transforming the way radio frequency, or RF, front-ends are being designed and delivered for mobile handset and wireless devices, today provided an update on its operational progress and announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

 

“In the second quarter of 2019 and recently, we successfully built on the traction gained earlier in the year,” stated George B. Holmes, Chairman and CEO of Resonant. “We continue to expand our customer relationships to twelve and the number of designs contracted today is 80. We have new foundries partnering with us, which provides more choice to our fabless customers and greater production options for our new technologies. Through our work with industry-leading design automation companies, we are broadening the reach of our Filter IP Standard Library and laying the ground work for the integration of our Infinite Synthesized Networks (ISN®) platform, making the RF filter design capabilities of ISN and Resonant’s standard products available to a broader range of customers.

 

“Most significantly, we have demonstrated the potential of our XBAR technology for mobile devices, through multiple validation tests at third party labs. As a result, we were able to secure an engagement with a Tier One filter manufacturer for a multi-year commercial agreement providing the company with rights to multiple designs utilizing Resonant’s technology. Based upon our efforts and achievements, we are entering the second half of 2019 with a high level of confidence in the inevitability of our revenue ramp and our ability to deliver long-term value to our shareholders.”

Note about Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with

 


 

generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures. Other companies may use different non-GAAP measures and presentation of results.

 

In addition to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release presents adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by taking net loss and adding interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expenses. The company believes that this non-GAAP measure, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of net loss, provides useful information to investors by providing a more focused measure of operating results. This metric is an integral part of the Company’s internal reporting to evaluate its operations and the performance of senior management. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most comparable GAAP measure, is available in the accompanying financial tables below. The non-GAAP measure presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

About Resonant’s ISN® Technology

 

Resonant can create designs for difficult bands, modules and other complex RF Front End requirements that we believe have the potential to be manufactured for half the cost and developed in half the time of traditional approaches. ISN is a suite of proprietary mathematical methods, software design tools and network synthesis techniques that enable us to explore a much larger set of possible design solutions that regularly incorporate our proprietary technology. We then quickly deliver design simulations to our customers, which they manufacture or have manufactured by one of our foundry partners. These improved solutions still use Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) or Temperature Compensated Surface Acoustic Wave (TC-SAW) manufacturing methods and perform as well as those using higher cost manufacturing methods such as Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW). Resonant’s method delivers excellent predictability, enabling achievement of the desired product performance in roughly half as many turns through the fab. In addition, because Resonant’s models are fundamental, integration with its foundry and fab customers is seamless because its models speak the “fab language” of basic material properties and dimensions.

 


 

Safe Harbor / Forward-Looking Statements

 

This press release contains forward-looking statements, which include the following subjects, among others: the status of filter designs under development, the capabilities of our filter designs and software tools, the timing and amount of future revenues, and our views on future financial performance and market share. Forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this document and are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, the following: our limited operating history; our ability to complete designs that meet customer specifications; the ability of our customers (or their manufacturers) to fabricate our designs in commercial quantities; our customers’ ability to sell products incorporating our designs to their OEM customers; changes in our expenditures and other uses of cash; the ability of our designs to significantly lower costs compared to other designs and solutions; the risk that the intense competition and rapid technological change in our industry renders our designs less useful or obsolete; our ability to find, recruit and retain the highly skilled personnel required for our design process in sufficient numbers to support our growth; our ability to manage growth; and general market, economic and business conditions. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by our forward-looking statements are under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our most recent Annual Report (Form 10-K) or Quarterly Report (Form 10-Q) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this release, and we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update forward-looking statements.
