Advanced Photonix Reports FY2013 Second Quarter Results

Advanced Photonix, Inc.® (NYSE MKT: API) (the “Company”) today reported results for the second quarter ended September 28, 2012.

Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter Ended September 28, 2012

  • Net sales for the quarter were $5.6 million, a decrease of $2.8 million or 33% from the second quarter ended September 30, 2011. Sequentially, revenues were down 10% relative to the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Gross profit margin for Q2 2013 was 35.3% of sales compared to 42.7% for the same quarter of fiscal 2012. Price pressures in our high-speed optical receiver (HSOR) product line prior to cost reduction efforts and lower volumes affected the rate and gross margin dollars.
  • Current quarter net loss was $1,287,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to a quarterly loss of $254,000, or $0.01 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.
  • The Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $942,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, as compared to a Non-GAAP net income of $155,000, or $.01 per diluted share, for the second quarter last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (which is defined as GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation), was a negative $717,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 as compared to positive adjusted EBITDA of $469,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Operating Expenses

The Company’s total operating expenses for the quarter were $3.2 million, down 17% compared to the $3.9 million reported for the second quarter last year. As a percent of revenue, total operating expenses were 58% compared to 47% for the second quarter last year.

Richard Kurtz, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We continue to believe that our fiscal 2013 will have a much better second half. As with the other telecommunications suppliers we have seen weakness in network spending recently. This has caused us to be more cautious in our total year outlook. Our recent success in securing increased 100G business from one of our large OEM’s for calendar year 2013 is a positive sign amid general softness we have seen from China and Europe due to challenging macro economic conditions. Our terahertz (THz) product platform is continuing to gain traction in industrial process control markets and we expect this growth to continue during the balance of the fiscal year and beyond. However due to the more challenging international macroeconomic environment, reduced U.S. military activities, and the looming U.S. fiscal cliff and their corresponding impact on our customer’s expansion plans in the industrial and defense markets, we are projecting a more cautious outlook for the fiscal year. Due to these conditions we are changing revenue growth for the second half of our fiscal 2013 to a range of 15-25% higher than the first half.”

The Company will hold a conference call to discuss the results for the second quarter ended September 28, 2012 on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, at 4:30 PM EST.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
