Resonant Inc. Reports Second Quarter Financial Results

Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a late-stage development stage company that is creating innovative filter designs for radio frequency, or RF, front-ends for the mobile device industry, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 and provided a business update.

Highlights for the Second Quarter 2014

  • Successfully closed an initial public offering (IPO) of 3.1 million shares of common stock (including the exercise in full by the underwriter of its over-allotment option) on June 3 at a price of $6.00 per share listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “RESN”
  • Generated $16.2 million in net proceeds from the IPO
  • Completed the second of four milestones on the duplexer design under the Company’s existing development agreement
  • Expanded the Company’s patent portfolio to 38 issued and pending patents at June 30, 2014, up from 35 at the time of the IPO
  • Was added to the Russell Microcap® Index in early July
  • Appointed John Philpott, CPA, MBA, as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Philpott has more than 20 years’ financial and accounting management experience including serving as Chief Financial Officer for 3 other public, early stage companies. For his full bio, visit: management bios.

“The funds from our successful IPO will enable us to aggressively pursue Resonant’s long-term vision to transform the field of RF front-ends for mobile devices,” said Chief Executive Officer, Co-Founder and Chairman Terry Lingren. “This is a market that was $2.7 billion in 2013 and is forecasted to reach $5.2 billion by 2017, according to market research firm Navian. Using our proprietary Infinite Synthesized NetworksTM technology coupled with our highly experienced design team and a substantial technology lead, we expect to disrupt the status quo and deliver next-generation designs that are not available with the current technology. This becomes especially important as we move into the Internet of Things and wireless connectivity becomes ubiquitous.”

Financial Results for the Second Quarter and YTD1

  • Ended the Second Quarter with $16.7 million of working capital. Working capital improved by $25.5 million from $8.8 million of negative working capital at December 31, 2013.
  • Converted $9.4 million of outstanding notes into 2.8 million common shares as a result of the IPO, eliminating the debt and future interest expense.
  • Research and development expenses increased $861,000 to $989,000 in the Second Quarter. The increase reflected accelerated activity on a duplexer design under development for a potential customer.
  • General and administrative expenses declined $308,000 in the Second Quarter to $455,000. The decline was a result of a non-cash accounting charge of $716,000 in the same period last year for the fair value of warrants issued for business consulting services. Excluding the effect of the accounting charge, G&A expenses increased by $420,000 in the Second Quarter.
  • Operating loss increased by $610,000 to $1.5 million for the Second Quarter. The increased loss primarily reflected increased R&D activities and G&A expenses consistent with planned growth.
  • Interest expense increased $1.8 million in the Second Quarter to $2.1 million. The increase was primarily the result of the conversion of all outstanding notes into common stock in the IPO. The conversion triggered the full write-off of related debt discounts and issuance costs. The increase also included, to a lesser degree, interest paid on the notes. The prior periods included minimal interest because the notes were issued late in the second quarter of 2013.
  • The net loss increased by $1.8 million to $3.3 million, or $0.81 per fully diluted share, for the Second Quarter.

______________________________________

1 Financial data is for the second quarter (Second Quarter) and year-to-date (YTD) ended June 30, 2014. Comparisons are to the comparable periods in 2013.

Commenting on the Company’s outlook, Terry Lingren stated, “Our primary activity in the near term will be to continue work on the duplexer design under our existing development agreement. We are actively working on the third milestone and expect to complete work on the duplexer design before the end of 2014. We also plan to start work on a tunable design before year end. We are hiring additional technical personnel to support product development and are forecasting increasing levels of cash expenditures. Even assuming no revenues, we believe our cash resources will provide sufficient funds for planned operations into 2016.”

Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include the following subjects, among others: the status of filter designs under development, the prospects for licensing filter designs upon completion of development, plans for other filter designs not currently in development, potential customers for our designs, the timing and amount of future royalty streams, the expected duration of our capital resources, our hiring plans, our cash flow forecast, the impact of our designs on the mobile device market, and our business strategy. Forward-looking statements 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 (particularly as a new public company); management of R&D efforts; the acceptance of our filter designs by potential customers; the ability of our customers (or their manufacturers) to fabricate our designs in commercial quantities; 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 prospectus dated May 28, 2014, and our most recent Quarterly Report (Form 10-Q), both filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
