Everspin Reports Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Everspin Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRAM), the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of discrete and embedded MRAM, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Third Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Total revenue of $11.5 million, an increase of 28% year-over-year
  • Executed joint agreement with SilTerra to establish additional manufacturing capacity for Toggle products
  • Extended length of joint development agreement with GLOBALFOUNDRIES providing both companies more effective controls on their respective development programs
  • Everspin 256Mb STT-MRAM will be available on another storage array platform from the companys leading enterprise storage customer
  • Ended quarter with cash balance of $31.4 million

Third quarter results demonstrated meaningful progress from both a revenue and an operational perspective. The third quarter results show an important return to top line growth for the company. I am pleased with the ongoing improvement our team has made in our Toggle operations and with the traction our 256Mb STT-MRAM product is gaining both within our lead customers and beyond. We remain on track with the planned sampling of our 1Gb STT product next month. And finally, weve successfully executed multiple strategic agreements and initiatives that we believe will support longer-term profitable growth, said Kevin Conley, Everspins President and CEO.

Summary of Preliminary Restated Second Quarter Financial Results

Everspin also announced today that the company will be restating its second quarter 2018 financial results due to a discrepancy related to the timing of recognizing scrapped inventory in the amount of $770 thousand. As a result, the company will reflect an additional $770 thousand increase in cost of sales for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2018, which will reduce gross profit and increase both loss from operations and net loss. The company anticipates filing its third quarter 10-Q and an amended second quarter form 10-Q/A on or before November 16, 2018. The second quarter 2018 financials are expected to be restated as follows:
