AltiGen Communications, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/20/13 -- AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN), the leading provider of integrated Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2013.

Fiscal Year 2013 Fourth Quarter Performance
Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $2.8 million, in comparison to $3.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, a decrease of 20%. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, net loss from operations was $398,000, or a loss of $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or a loss of $0.09 per share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. The decrease in net loss was approximately 75% and was the result of a significant increase in gross profit percentage as well as a significant reduction in overall operating expenses.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 71.2%, up from 35.9% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. The increase in gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with the prior-year fourth quarter was primarily due to reduced cost of goods as a result of a one-time adjustment of $1.1 million in excess inventory reserves recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012. Operating expenses were $2.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, a decrease of 13.8% from $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. Our expenses continued to decline due to our cost control measures executed over the past year.

Fiscal Year 2013 Full Year Performance
For the twelve months ended September 30, 2013, revenue was $13.1 million, compared to $16.9 million for fiscal 2012, a decrease of 22.5%. For fiscal 2013, net loss from operations was $1.3 million, or a loss of $0.08 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.8 million, or a loss of $0.11 per share, for fiscal 2012.

Gross margin was 71.2% for the twelve-month period of fiscal 2013, compared to 60.1% in the comparable period last year. The increase in gross margin for 2013 was primarily due to the aforementioned reduced cost of goods as a result of a one-time adjustment of $1.1 million in excess inventory reserves recorded in fiscal 2012. Operating expenses were $10.6 million for fiscal year 2013, a decrease of 10.9% from $11.9 million for fiscal 2012. Our expenses continued to decline due to our cost control measures executed over the past year.

As of September 30, 2013, total cash and cash equivalents was $3.4 million, compared to total cash and cash equivalents of $4.2 million as of September 30, 2012.
