REDMOND, WA / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2023 / MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in MEMS-based solid-state automotive lidar and ADAS solutions, today announced its first quarter 2023 results.

"Following the closing in January of our acquisition of assets from Ibeo Automotive Systems GmbH, we are energized by the strength of our combined team, accelerated engagement with multiple OEMs, and positive financial performance in Q1 2023. Revenue of $0.8 million was ahead of our expectations, primarily driven by the acquisition." said Sumit Sharma, MicroVision's Chief Executive Officer. "I am pleased with our significant achievements in the first quarter, with the momentum in our top line driven by our expanded product offerings and the efficient integration of our U.S. and Germany teams.

"With the dynamic-view MAVIN™, our MEMS-based scanning lidar for long-range highway pilot; MOVIA™, our flash-based short-range lidar for automotive and non-automotive applications; and MOSAIK™, our validation software suite for OEMs and Tier 1s, MicroVision is uniquely positioned to capture meaningful market share in both automotive and non-automotive verticals," continued Sharma. "Our product offerings and unmatched technical capabilities are proving to be compelling in key RFIs and RFQs from several OEMs around the globe. We maintain our 2023 revenue guidance of $10-15 million from our expanded product suite."

Key Financial Highlights for Q1 2023

  • Revenue for the first quarter of 2023 was $0.8 million, compared to $0.4 million for the first quarter of 2022. The revenue growth in the first quarter was primarily due to the IBEO acquisition and includes the sale of lidar hardware and related software to various customers.
  • Net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was $19.0 million, or $0.11 per share, which includes $2.9 million of non-cash, share-based compensation expense, $1.7 million bargain purchase price gain, compared to a net loss for the first quarter of 2022 of $13.2 million, or $0.08 per share, which includes $3.7 million of non-cash, share-based compensation expense.
  • Adjusted Gross Profit for the first quarter of 2023 was a $0.5 million, compared to a $0.3 million for the first quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2023 was a $15.8 million loss, compared to a $9.0 million loss for the first quarter of 2022.
  • Cash used in operations in the first quarter of 2023 was $13.8 million, compared to cash used in operations in the first quarter of 2022 of $10.9 million.

Non-GAAP information

To supplement MicroVision's condensed financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company presents investors with the non-GAAP financial measure "adjusted EBITDA" and "adjusted Gross Profit." Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) excluding the impact of the following: interest income and interest expense; income tax expense; depreciation and amortization; and share-based compensation. Adjusted Gross Profit is calculated as GAAP gross profit before stock-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangibles included in cost of revenue.

MicroVision believes that the presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends, provides consistency and comparability with MicroVision's past financial reports, and facilitates comparisons with other companies in the Company's industry, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Internally, management uses this non-GAAP measure when evaluating operating performance because the exclusion of the items described above provides an additional useful measure of the Company's operating results and facilitates comparisons of the Company's core operating performance against prior periods and its business objectives. Externally, the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit is useful to investors in their assessment of MicroVision's operating performance and the valuation of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted Gross Profit is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of MicroVision's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from its non-GAAP financial measure should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent. The Company compensates for limitations of the measure by prominently disclosing GAAP net income (loss), which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and providing investors with a reconciliation from GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA.

Similarly for Adjusted Gross Profit, the Company compensates for limitations of the measure by prominently disclosing GAAP gross profits which is the difference between Revenue and Cost of revenue, which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and providing investors with a reconciliation by backing out stock-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangibles included in cost of revenue.
