ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/14 -- Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.
"Revenue for the first quarter was $8.4 million, down 29% sequentially, and 27% year-over-year. While we typically see a drop in revenue from the fourth quarter to the first quarter each year due to seasonality in our Productivity and Graphics business, this year's decline was more strongly felt since, as expected, the 19% customer in Q4 did not contribute any revenue to Q1," said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software.
"While we were hopeful that we could achieve profitability based on our previous restructure, a significant potential deal that didn't materialize and uncertainty regarding the timing of future revenues have resulted in the need for additional cost cutting measures. Therefore, we are taking immediate steps to further lower our cost structure by approximately $2.0 million per quarter. The Board has approved a restructuring plan that will streamline our organization and reduce overall headcount by approximately 20%. The plan will result in one-time severance and other special charges of approximately $1.6 to $2.0 million, which will be reported in our second quarter," Mr. Smith concluded.
Smith Micro Software reported revenue of $8.4 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to $11.6 million reported in the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.
First quarter gross profit on a GAAP and non-GAAP (which excludes stock compensation) basis was $6.0 million, compared to $9.2 million reported in the first quarter of 2013.
GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 71.4 percent for the first quarter of 2014, compared to 78.9 percent for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 71.4 percent for the first quarter of 2014, compared to 79.0 percent for the same quarter last year.
GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $5.2 million, or a loss of $0.14 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $6.2 million, or $0.17 per share, for the first quarter of 2013.
Non-GAAP net loss (which excludes stock compensation and non-cash tax expense) for the first quarter of 2014 was $2.7 million, or a loss of $0.07 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.08 per share, for the first quarter of 2013.
Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at March 31, 2014 were $11.2 million.
Fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2014 were 37.7 million, compared to 36.6 million fully diluted weighted average common shares outstanding as of March 31, 2013.
The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, loss before taxes, net loss and loss per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes that this presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing the Company's income generation, since stock-based compensation and non-cash tax expense are excluded from the non-GAAP earnings calculation. Since the Company is in a loss position, the non-GAAP income tax benefit for the period ended March 31, 2014 was computed by using a tax rate of 38 percent using the Company's normalized combined U.S. federal, state and foreign statutory tax rates less various tax adjustments. This presentation may be considered more indicative of the Company's ongoing operational performance. The tables below present the differences between non-GAAP earnings and net loss on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-financial measures as reported by Smith Micro Software may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.

Safe Harbor Statement:
This release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including without limitation, forward-looking statements relating to the company's financial prospects and other projections of its performance, the execution of our recently announced restructuring, our ability to halt the decline of our cash reserves in light of our continued losses, the existence of new market opportunities and interest in the company's products and solutions, and the company's ability to increase its revenue and regain profitability by capitalizing on these new market opportunities and interest and introducing new products and solutions. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements are potential for disruption and loss of customers and business from the transfer of duties and responsibilities in our recently announced restructuring, the risk that we will continue to incur losses and not regain profitability, the risk that we may need to raise additional capital to fund our operations and such capital may not be available to us at commercially reasonable terms or at all, changes in demand for the company's products from its customers and their end-users, customer concentration given that the majority of our sales depend on a few large client relationships, including Sprint, new and changing technologies, customer acceptance and timing of deployment of those technologies, new and continuing adverse economic conditions, and the company's ability to compete effectively with other software companies. These and other factors discussed in the company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
