TechFaith Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

BEIJING, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company") today announced unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

For the second quarter of 2014, TechFaith reported net revenue of US$23.1 million compared to US$26.2 million in the first quarter of 2014. This is in line with the Company's previously issued guidance for the second quarter, which estimated revenue to be in the range of US$22 million to US$26 million. Revenue for the Company's Original Developed Product, or ODP, business was US$18.4 million, as compared to US$23.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. The 21.3% sequential decline in revenue from the ODP business was mainly due to continuing intensive competition in smartphone markets worldwide. Revenue in the Company's brand name phone business was US$4.5 million, as compared to US$2.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. The 64.6% sequential increase in revenue from the brand name phone business was mainly due to increased customer demand for the Company's tailored mobile devices. 

Gross profit for the second quarter was US$2.0 million, compared to US$1.9 million in the first quarter of 2014 and US$3.4 million in the second quarter of 2013, reflecting the adverse impact of the lower revenue base and different business mix compared to the same period from last year. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 was 8.8%, compared to 7.4% in the first quarter of 2014 and 11.2% in the second quarter of 2013. Net loss attributed to TechFaith for the second quarter of 2014 was US$2.1 million, or US$0.04 loss per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS, compared to net loss of US$2.9 million, or US$0.05 loss per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS, in the first quarter of 2014, and a net loss of US$1.0 million, or US$0.02 loss per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS, in the second quarter of 2013.

Miss Ouyang Yuping, TechFaith's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Revenue for the second quarter was in line with our guidance, as sequential growth in our brand name phone business helped offset declines in our ODP business.  We were also able to achieve a sequential improvement in our gross margin to 8.8% from 7.4% in the first quarter. This remains below our historical average gross margin level, reflecting the continuing negative impact of intense competition worldwide in the smartphone markets.  As a positive, operating expenses declined slightly in the second quarter of 2014 as we continually monitor our costs. We are also keeping the development of our real estate portfolio on track from an investment cost and timeline standpoint.  This is reflected in our quarter end balance of cash and cash equivalents, which declined slightly to US$253.9 million, as compared to US$258.5 million in the first quarter, primary due to the planned costs associated with our ongoing real estate portfolio development."

Mr. Deyou Dong, President and Chief Operating Officer of TechFaith, said, "Despite the lower revenues level at which we have been operating, we are very optimistic about TechFaith's prospects.  There is a fundamental shift going on in the dynamic mobile market. Large dominant brands are no longer able to control all local markets. The pendulum has swung back in favor of local brands being able to make inroads with competitively priced, value-added offerings. We are seeing this in our domestic China market and other key markets worldwide. For TechFaith, we expect the competitive environment to remain very challenging for the foreseeable future. We understand, however, that we can make inroads above our current lower revenue level by leveraging our design expertise, market knowledge and close customer relationships. Areas where we have been at the forefront – including our branded ruggedized smartphones and perfecting features like dual-SIM capacity, better camera capabilities and a variety of healthcare applications - give us a window of opportunity on which we can capitalize. For example, we are optimistic that shipments for our new ruggedized models will increase over the next few quarters given the uniqueness of our integrated hardware and software. Finally, we continue our efforts in developing our branded Smart ruggedized devices in the domestic China market through above and below the line advertisements, as well as new social media platforms."

Mr. Defu Dong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TechFaith, said, "The continued challenging competitive market is masking our continued progress on the development of our real estate portfolio and the value of our core handset business. We have navigated widespread industry and business shifts in the past. By focusing on our core market strengths and the needs of customers and carriers we serve worldwide, we have built TechFaith as a global brand that is equated with excellence in design and superb handset performance. We remain flexible in navigating the challenging market and focused on keeping operating costs lean, while maintaining a very strong balance sheet. We are optimistic about our long-term prospects despite our current lower revenue level. We have several promising product upgrades and new launches in the pipeline, including our planned entry later this year into the wearables market with a ruggedized sports watch. We also plan to expand and extend the success of our ruggedized product line by developing a ruggedized extreme camera. This is particularly exciting for us as we can offer a complete line of ruggedized solutions to our clients."

Third Quarter of 2014 Outlook

The forecast below is TechFaith's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.  TechFaith currently expects total revenues for the third quarter of 2014 to be in the range of US$22.0 million to US$24.0 million.
