Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN), a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies and solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2013, and provided an update on its business initiatives.
Comments on the Second Quarter
“Interest in our wearable computing technology solutions among current and prospective customers continues to grow,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the second quarter we advanced our ongoing discussions with customers and prospects in areas such as product definition and design, while on the technology front we continued development of our display, optical and noise cancellation technologies.
“A stream of consumer electronics and mobile communications companies are exploring the wearable computing technology market, further strengthening our belief in the significance of the market opportunity. Based on conversations with current and prospective customers, our expertise in critical disciplines, including display, optics, noise cancellation and ergonomics, is what distinguishes us as a leading partner to help these companies build the coming wave of wearable products,” Dr. Fan said.
“We also made significant strides during the quarter in developing an Android version of our software, which we anticipate will be available by year end to complement our Windows version,” Dr. Fan said.
Second Quarter Results
Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 29, 2013, were $6.1 million, compared with $7.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting a decline in sales of display products for military applications. Cost of goods sold was 110.6% of revenues for the second quarter of 2013 compared with 81.5% of revenues in the same period of 2012, reflecting a lower percentage of display sales from our higher margin military products, an accrual of approximately $0.8 million for the repayment of a state jobs grant, the write-down of approximately $0.6 million for excess inventory associated with military products and manufacturing inefficiencies resulting from reduced volumes.
Research and development expenses for the second quarter were $3.7 million, or approximately 60% of revenues, compared with $2.9 million, or about 42% of revenues for 2012, reflecting an increase in costs to develop our wearable and military technologies.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.7 million, or approximately 78% of revenues, in the second quarter of 2013, compared with approximately $4.1 million, or about 59% of revenues in the same period of 2012.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 was $7.8 million, or $0.12 per share, compared with net loss of $5.2 million, or $0.08, for the same period of 2012.
Including the proceeds from the sale of its III-V assets, Kopin’s cash, equivalents and marketable securities at June 29, 2013, increased to $130.4 million at June 29, 2013 from $92.5 million at year-end 2012.
Cash flow used in operating activities for the six month ended June 29, 2013, was $6.7 million.
“Kopin is in the process of transforming its business model from one that has been primarily commodity-based to one powered by providing innovative solutions for wearable devices with the opportunity to generate substantially higher gross margins,” Dr. Fan said. “We continue to make the strategic investments necessary to establish Kopin as the preeminent developer of components and solutions in the wearable technology market.”
Based on its performance through the first six months of 2013 and its anticipated investments for the remainder of the year, Kopin now expects a net loss in the range of $28 million to $33 million for the 12 months ending December 28, 2013. This guidance excludes the impact of the Company’s sale of its III-V assets and its investment in Kopin Taiwan Corporation, and includes its acquisition of a majority interest in e-MDT America.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
