eMagin Corporation Announces First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

– Continued Progress on Key Initiatives –

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–eMagin Corporation, or the “Company”, (NYSE American: EMAN), a
leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED
microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced
financial results and corporate highlights for the first quarter ended
March 31, 2019.

“We are seeing growing demand for our products, particularly with U.S.
military and aviation programs and with new and existing international
customers,” said Andrew Sculley, Chief Executive Officer. “During the
first quarter of fiscal 2019, we made progress towards our goals of
securing new U.S. military programs and broadening our presence in
foreign military applications and in industrial and medical markets. We
continue to participate in government discussions on microdisplay
development for future defense aviation/mounted/dismounted programs and
to position our displays as a key component of the future Soldier System
2030 technology suite for enhanced soldier performance and accelerated
decision making. In the first quarter alone, we sold to over 70
customers and supplied products for over 20 new programs. Our backlog of
products scheduled for delivery through March 31, 2020, continues to be
solid at $10.7 million, an increase of approximately $100 thousand over
the backlog of $10.6 million at December 31, 2018.

“We continue to work towards supplementing our display sales by
providing our customers a more complete solution. We have developed a
prism optic which we shipped during the quarter to a military customer
for evaluation. We also developed a fiber optic taper that will enable
our displays to be incorporated into products which are being
retrofitted or otherwise designed for a different sized microdisplay. In
addition, a new assembly process was developed and validated that allows
additional optical elements to be attached to our microdisplays,
providing for a broader range of applications by the customer with less
up-front engineering design work.

“I am pleased with the progress we are making with our largest (4K x 4K)
full color display which we are developing in collaboration with our
Tier 1 consumer electronics customer to incorporate into a consumer
headset. We are also working with a new medical device manufacturer on
development of next generation diagnostic equipment. We believe the high
resolution, high contrast, and brightness of our OLED displays have
strong appeal across both defense and commercial industries, and we
continue to pursue new opportunities.

“On the military side, we are continuing to win new programs and support
existing ones. Many of these are long duration programs which we support
for their entire lifetime. While we provide displays to the newer U.S.
Army Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG) III and ENVG-B programs, we
recently received a $627,000 order for displays under the ENVG II
program that we have supported since 2013. In addition, ground and
flight tests were successfully completed for a major U.S. Army
helicopter helmet upgrade program which involves retrofitting our high
brightness microdisplays into the current fielded helmet.

“Turning to our operations, we have resolved our production issues from
the fourth quarter with special focus on addressing potential single
point failures. As well, we are making progress on our multi-year yield
improvement initiatives. We have increased our production resources,
made some key technical hires, and installed and qualified new, advanced
production equipment. These efforts should give us greater production
reliability and flexibility while increasing production capacity,
lowering unit costs and providing greater operating efficiencies.

“Finally, we are working to improve the efficiency and lifetime of our
direct patterned (dPdTM) displays. We have made architectural
improvements and incorporated superior performing OLED materials. We are
also upgrading our existing dPd production equipment and expect it to be
completed and ready for sampling in the third quarter. The redesigned
equipment will have significant throughput improvement and will better
demonstrate the technology’s capability for mass production,” concluded
Mr. Sculley.

Business and Product Highlights

  • We successfully processed the initial 4K x 4K wafers that we designed
    for a Tier 1 consumer electronics partner which we received in
    December. This enabled us to validate the base functionality of the 4K
    x 4K display and confirmed our ability to develop a large area silicon
    microdisplay with no visible non-uniformities. These high brightness
    displays will be used to develop a headset with a wide field of view
    and no screen door effect. Validation at the individual display level
    is expected to be completed during the second quarter with full color
    prototype development using our dPd technology completed in the third
  • We delivered displays for the F-35 Lightning II helmet throughout the
    first quarter while continuing to work closely with the Collins
    Aerospace team to further improve the display in preparation for Low
    Rate Initial Production.
  • We increased our presence in the medical device market with an order
    from a new customer, an innovative developer and manufacturer of
    diagnostic and ophthalmic surgical equipment, for the development of
    their next generation diagnostic equipment.
  • In April, we received a follow-on order of $239,000 in support of the
    Javelin Missile program Command Launch Unit. This is in addition to
    $560,000 of orders that we received during 2018.
  • We continue to support full rate production for the US ARMY ENVG III
    program. Additionally, we are working with both prime contractors on
    pre-production units for the ENVG Binocular program. This program is
    anticipated to commence production in late 2019/early 2020 with an
    overall acquisition objective by the U.S. Army of approximately
    190,000 systems.
  • In April, we received a $627,000 order for the ENVG II program which
    the Company has been supporting since 2013, evidencing the ongoing
    revenue opportunities from mature programs.
  • In the first quarter of 2019, we received $150,000 from the US Army
    for OLED display production and yield improvement projects in addition
    to the $830,000 we received in 2018. An additional $900 thousand of
    projects are under consideration with this successful program, of
    which $120 thousand has already been confirmed for 2019.
  • Our high brightness microdisplay that we delivered to a major defense
    contractor last year has been selected for a next generation U.S.
    rotary wing helmet program with procurement expected beginning in 2020.

Quarter Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2019 were $6.1 million, a decrease of
$0.8 million from revenues of $6.9 million reported a year ago, but up
sequentially by $0.7 million from the fourth quarter of 2018.

Product revenues were $5.5 million as compared to $5.9 million in the
first quarter of 2018. On a sequential basis, product revenues grew 13%
from 4Q18. The year-over-year decrease in product revenue was due to
display production related issues from the fourth quarter of 2018 which
impacted the first quarter. Contract revenues totaled $0.6 million in
the first quarter compared to $1.0 million in the same quarter of last
year, reflecting the lower level of development work required at this
phase of the consumer contract work to develop the 4K x 4K display.
Government contract revenues during the quarter were largely unchanged
from the prior year period.

Overall gross margin for the first quarter was 22% on gross profit of
$1.3 million compared to a gross margin of 29% on gross profit of $2.0
million in the prior year period. The decrease in gross margin was
primarily due to lower revenues in the quarter compared to the year ago

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2019, including R&D
expenses, were $3.5 million as compared to $4.5 million in the first
quarter of 2018. Operating expenses as a percentage of sales were 58% in
the first quarter compared to 66% a year ago. The decrease in operating
expenses was primarily due to lower SG&A expenses this period versus the
year ago period which included spending on professional services, legal,
and travel expenses for negotiations with prospective partners, as well
as $240 thousand for transaction fees associated with the January 2018
equity offering.

Operating loss for the first quarter was $2.2 million versus an
operating loss of $2.6 million in the first quarter of last year. Net
loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.4 million, or $0.03 per
diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.05 per
diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018. The net loss included
income related to the change in the fair value of the warrant liability
of $0.8 million and $0.5 million, respectively, for the first quarters
of 2019 and 2018.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3.5
million, working capital of $7.3 million, and borrowing availability
under the ABL facility of $0.8 million. Subsequent to the end of the
quarter, the Company announced two separate registered direct offerings
raising total proceeds to eMagin of $4.0 million before fees and other
offering expenses.
