China Digital TV Announces Unaudited Second Quarter 2014 Results

BEIJING, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STV) ("China Digital TV" or the "Company"), the leading provider of conditional access ("CA") systems and comprehensive services to China's expanding digital television market, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Highlights for the Second Quarter 2014

  • Net revenues in the second quarter of 2014 were US$17.2 million, representing a 5.8% decrease from the same period in 2013 and a 5.6% decrease from the first quarter of 2014.
  • China Digital TV shipped approximately 3.55 million smart cards in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 3.58 million in the same period in 2013 and 3.56 million in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Gross margin in the second quarter of 2014 was 73.3%, compared to 76.7% in the same period in 2013 and 78.6% in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Diluted earnings per American depositary share, or ADS (one ADS representing one ordinary share), in the second quarter of 2014 were US$0.07, compared to US$0.03 in the same period in 2013 and US$0.07 in the first quarter of 2014.

"We are pleased to report a solid performance in the second quarter, with smart card shipments and net revenue both meeting our guidance," said Dr. Lu Zengxiang, China Digital TV's acting chief executive officer and acting chief financial officer. "We continued to see steady demand for smart cards from Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Sichuan, Shandong and Jiangxi, and strong execution in these key regions helped us maintain a 51% share of the Chinese market, according to Zhongguang Luoda. Regulators' recent tightening of over-the-top services is expected to create further opportunities for us to expand our coverage of cable users in China from a long term point of view."

Dr. Lu continued, "Alongside the traditional CA market, we maintained our focus on value-added services this quarter, with our subsidiary Cybercloud continuing to explore market opportunities beyond partnerships with cable operators. There were exciting developments in our cloud computing business, including a new agreement with Jiangsu Mobile to develop cloud games for OTT set-top boxes and 4G cloud games on mobile, as well as the establishment of a streaming platform for Shandong Network TV covering China Telecom and Unicom broadband users in Shandong. Our overseas business also grew steadily. Alongside Southeast Asia, where we have made promising progress in recent quarters, we plan to continue exploring opportunities across other emerging markets with strong growth potential."

"Improved operating efficiency helped us maintain a solid bottom line," Dr. Lu added. "We expect the reorganization of our corporate structure and management team to allow us to maintain a long-term leading position in China's expanding digital TV market and realize greater value for China Digital TV shareholders."

Second Quarter 2014 Results

(Note: Unless otherwise stated, all financial statement measures stated in this press release are based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP").)

In the second quarter of 2014, China Digital TV had net revenues of US$17.2 million, a decrease of 5.8% from the second quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 5.6% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decrease in revenues from the sales of smart cards as a result of a decrease in the average selling price ("ASP") of smart cards, which was partially offset by an increase in revenues from services, such as licensing income. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a decrease in revenues from other products, such as surface mounted chips, as well as a decrease in revenues from the sales of smart cards as a result of a decrease in the ASP.

In the second quarter of 2014, revenues from the Company's top five customers accounted for 23.7% of total revenues, compared to 25.0% in the first quarter of 2014.

Revenues from smart cards and other products were US$15.9 million in the second quarter of 2014, a decrease of 9.1% from the same period in 2013 and a decrease of 7.1% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decrease in revenues from the sales of smart cards as a result of a decrease in the ASP. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a decrease in revenues from other products, such as surface mounted chips, as well as a decrease in revenues from the sales of smart cards as a result of a decrease in the ASP. Sales of smart cards and other products accounted for 91.4% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 92.3% in the preceding quarter.

Revenues from services were US$1.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 52.6% from the same period in 2013 and an increase of 5.4% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in revenue from licensing income. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to an increase in revenue from licensing income, which was partially offset by decreases in royalty income and head-end system integration. Revenues from services accounted for 8.6% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 7.7% in the preceding quarter.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2014 was US$12.6 million, a decrease of 9.9% from the same period in 2013 and a decrease of 11.9% from the first quarter of 2014. Gross margin, which is equal to gross profit divided by net revenues, was 73.3% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 76.7% in the same period in 2013 and 78.6% in the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases in gross margin were primarily due to an increase in cost of revenues, attributable to inventory write-downs with respect to multimedia home entertainment boxes.

In the second quarter of 2014, the ASP of smart cards decreased by 3.6% compared to the first quarter of 2014. In addition, the unit cost of smart cards remained relatively stable compared to the first quarter of 2014.

Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were US$9.3 million, a decrease of 12.3% from the same period in 2013 and a decrease of 11.2% from the first quarter of 2014.

  • Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were US$4.1 million, a decrease of 15.4% from the same period in 2013 and an increase of 1.8% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to decreases in personnel related expenses resulting from lower headcount and office rent. Research and development expenses remained relatively stable quarter-over-quarter.
  • Selling and marketing expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were US$3.3 million, a decrease of 7.6% from the same period in 2013 and a decrease of 20.2% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were mainly due to decreases in marketing expenses.
  • General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were US$2.0 million, a decrease of 12.9% from the same period in 2013 and a decrease of 18.1% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were mainly due to decreases in allowance for doubtful accounts. In this quarter, a portion of bad debt provisions was written back as related accounts receivable have been received.

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2014 was US$3.3 million, a 2.4% decrease from the same period in 2013 and a 13.9% decrease from the first quarter of 2014.

Operating margin, defined as income from operations divided by net revenues, in the second quarter of 2014 was 19.0%, compared to 18.3% in the same period in 2013 and 20.8% in the first quarter of 2014.

Interest income in the second quarter of 2014 was US$0.3 million, a 17.6% decrease from the same period in 2013 and a 54.4% decrease from the first quarter of 2014.

Income tax expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were US$0.3 million, compared to US$2.1 million in the same period of 2013 and US$0.9 million in the first quarter of 2014. In June 2014, the Company completed an internal reorganization. As a result of the reorganization, income tax expenses were reduced due to deductible investment losses arising from the equity transfers under the reorganization. Additionally, there was a difference in tax rate, with the Company accruing income tax expenses at a rate of 10% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 15% in the second quarter of 2013. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company's PRC operating subsidiary, Beijing Super TV Co., Ltd., was designated as a "key software enterprise" for the tax years of 2013 and 2014 by the relevant PRC government authorities and, as a result, was entitled to a preferential income tax rate of 10% in each of those years. As the Company accrued income tax expenses at a rate of 15% in the first three quarters of 2013, the accrued income tax expenses were partially reversed in the fourth quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease in income tax expenses in the second quarter of 2014 was mainly due to these two reasons. The quarter-over-quarter decrease in income tax expenses was primarily due to the Company's reorganization.

Net loss attributable to non-controlling interest in the second quarter of 2014 was US$0.4 million, an increase of 23.8% from the same period in 2013 and an increase of 78.5% from the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were largely due to increases in net losses recorded by the Company's majority-owned subsidiaries.

Net income attributable to holders of ordinary shares in the second quarter of 2014 was US$4.4 million, an increase of 147.1% from the same period in 2013 and an increase of 8.4% from the first quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to holders of ordinary shares, defined as net income excluding certain non-cash expenses, such as share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets from business acquisitions and equity method investments, in the second quarter of 2014 was US$4.7 million, an increase of 96.0% from the same period in 2013 and an increase of 6.3% from the first quarter of 2014. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Non-GAAP net income attributable to holders of ordinary shares excludes certain non-cash expenses, such as share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets acquired from business acquisitions and equity method investments. The Company believes that the non-GAAP net income provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance and liquidity by excluding certain non-cash expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash flow perspective. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to this additional information in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods.
