SAN DIEGO, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) today reported revenue of $38.5 million for its second quarter ended June 30, 2011, up 30 percent over the $29.6 million recorded in the same period in 2010. Ultracapacitor revenue increased by 54 percent, to $24.4 million in Q211, compared with $15.9 million in the same period last year. Sales of high voltage capacitor and microelectronics products totaled $14.0 million in Q211, up two percent from the $13.7 million recorded in Q210.
"Rapidly increasing sales into stop-start idle elimination systems in micro hybrid autos and various backup power applications augmented continuing strong sales for wind turbine blade pitch systems and hybrid and electric transit vehicle drive systems to generate another record quarter for ultracapacitor sales," said David Schramm, Maxwell's president and chief executive officer.
On a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, operating loss for Q211 was $1.6 million compared with an operating loss of $3.3 million in Q210. GAAP net loss for the second quarter 2011 was $1.2 million or $0.04 per share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.10 per share, in the same period last year. GAAP operating and net loss comparisons are affected by:
On a non-GAAP basis, the company reported operating income of $1.9 million in Q211, compared with operating income of $933,000 in the same period last year, and net income of $1.7 million or $0.06 per diluted share in Q211, compared with net income of $455,000, or $0.02 per diluted share in Q210. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is included as an addendum to this release.
GAAP gross margin was 40 percent in Q211, compared with 40 percent in Q210 and 39 percent in Q111. GAAP operating expenses totaled approximately $17.1 million, or 44 percent of revenue in Q211, compared with $15.2 million, or 51 percent of revenue in Q210. Non-GAAP operating expenses totaled approximately $13.7 million, or 36 percent of revenue, in Q211, compared with $11.1 million, or 37 percent of revenue, in Q210. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $29.8 million as of June 30, 2011, compared with $33.1 million as of March 31, 2011. Complete financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations will be available with the filing of the company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
Outlook: "We expect sequential top line growth of five to seven percent in the third quarter," Schramm said. "For the full year, we continue to expect that year-over-year top line growth will exceed 20 percent, and steadily improving operating performance should enable the company to be profitable on a non-GAAP basis going forward."
Non-GAAP Financial Measures: The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures for internal evaluation and to report the results of its business. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP diluted net income (loss) per share. These measures are not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, GAAP. These measures are intended to supplement GAAP financial information, and may be computed differently from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The company believes that these measures provide useful information to its management, board of directors and investors about its operating activities and business trends related to its financial condition and results of operations. The company believes that it is useful to provide investors with information to understand how specific line items in the statement of operations are affected by certain non-cash or non-recurring items, such as:
In addition, the company's management and board of directors use these non-GAAP financial measures in developing operating budgets and in reviewing the company's results of operations, as non-cash and non-recurring items have limited impact on current and future operating decisions. Additionally, the company believes that inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with its past reports of financial results. However, investors should be aware that non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations and should be read in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to the accompanying tables for a detailed reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP gross profit, operating expenses, income (loss) from operations, net income (loss), and diluted net income (loss) per share.
