Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA) today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014.
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2014 increased 8%, to $5.2 million compared to $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2013. Total revenue also increased 17% compared to the first quarter of 2014. Gross profit improved to $2.0 million, or 38% of total revenue, for the second quarter of 2014 from $1.8 million, or 37% of total revenue, for the second quarter of 2013. Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 also improved by $0.6 million, or 16%, compared to the second quarter of 2013. With increased revenues and lower operating expenses, the company's loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $1.0 million reflects an improvement of $0.7 million, or 43%, compared to the second quarter of 2013.
After recognition of discontinued operations, primarily associated with the sale of the company's medical shape sensing business in the first quarter of 2014, and income taxes, the company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $0.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2014, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted common share, in the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, which is earnings before interest, taxes, and non-cash expenses of share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, improved to $(0.5) million for the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $(1.1) million for the second quarter of 2013.
Year to date, total revenue grew 9%, to $9.7 million for the first half of 2014 compared to $8.9 million for the first six months of 2013. Products and licensing revenue improved 9%, to $3.8 million for the first half of 2014 compared to $3.5 million in the first half of 2013. Technology development revenue increased 8%, to $5.9 million for the first six months of 2014 compared to $5.4 million in the first six months of 2013. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes for the first half of 2014 improved $1.0 million, or 27%, compared to the first half of 2013. After considering income from discontinued operations, which included the gain on sale of the company’s medical shape sensing business in 2014 and included the gain on sale of the company’s secure computing assets in addition to the operating contribution of the shape sensing business in 2013, net income attributable to common stockholders improved to $7.6 million, or $0.44 per diluted common share, for the first six months of 2014 compared to $1.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted common share for the first six months of 2013.
“Our revenue growth and improved bottom line, both year over year and for sequential quarters, demonstrate the value of our recent strategic initiatives for our stockholders," said My Chung, president and chief executive officer. "As we have recently stated, our primary focus continues to be on fiber optic sensing. By narrowing the number of key growth initiatives to a single one, we have been able to grow the business overall while reducing our expenses and maintaining the stronger balance sheet that resulted from our two previous strategic transactions. Going forward, we will continue to focus heavily on the enhancement of our fiber optic sensing products and the effective marketing of them to drive growth in future quarters.”

In evaluating the operating performance of its business, Luna’s management excludes certain charges and credits that are required by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding items that the company believes may not be indicative of its operating performance, because either they are unusual and the company does not expect them to recur in the ordinary course of its business or they are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results and guidance prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure in the table following the financial statements attached to this press release.
