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.
