TechFaith Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

BEIJING, Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ:CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company") today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

For the third quarter of 2012, TechFaith reported revenue of US$31.5 million compared to US$32.4 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$80.6 million in the third quarter of 2011. This is in line with the Company's prior guidance for third quarter 2012 revenue to be in the range of US$30.0 million to US$35.0 million. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 was US$7.2 million compared to US$7.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. Gross margin for the third quarter increased slightly to 22.8% compared to 22.6% in the previous quarter. Net income attributed to TechFaith for the third quarter of 2012 was US$0.9 million or US$0.02 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS, compared to a net loss of US$0.7 million or US$0.01 loss per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS in the second quarter of 2012.

Miss Ouyang Yuping, TechFaith's Chief Financial Officer, said, "The third quarter developed as expected with a favorable mixed product shipment. Our operating expenses were reduced to US$5.1 million in the third quarter of 2012 from US$8.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. We had lower bad debt expense in the third quarter and lower selling and marketing expenses compared to the previous quarter. While we are starting to see some stability, we remain cautious, given the continued challenging economic environment and uncertain macro demand picture."

Mr. Deyou Dong, President and Chief Operating Officer of TechFaith, said, "We remain focused on developing unique mobile devices targeting certain niche and enterprise segments, which is important given the positive impact on TechFaith's revenue and margins. Our sales team continues to work closely with both local and regional customers to provide tailored solutions. As just one example, during the third quarter of 2012, we benefitted from shipments of our TITAN model to the European and Southeast Asian market."

Mr. Defu Dong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TechFaith, said, "We have enhanced the integration among our applications, software and hardware to better target current market opportunities. We also continue to develop our motion games, mobile games and Disney theme games. We have extensive intellectual property in this area. Our focus on intellectual property helps differentiate our products in a crowded market and helps us add value to customer-tailored solutions. We are also working to further grow our user base in the Internet segment as it provides even greater opportunities for our strategy. We believe this will bring us added synergies and eventual business growth."

Fourth Quarter of 2012 Outlook

The below forecast is TechFaith's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change. TechFaith currently expects total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 to be in the range of US$30.0 million to US$35.0 million.

"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.

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.
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.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
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 ...
"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.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

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...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.
