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.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
SYS-CON Media announced that Splunk, a provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, has launched an ad campaign on Big Data Journal.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
