Interphase Announces 2009 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results

Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), a leading global provider of solutions for converged communications networks, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2009.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $4.7 million compared to $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Revenues in the quarter were primarily impacted by broadband telecom revenues, which decreased approximately 17% to $3.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2009 compared to $4.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Professional services revenues increased to $410,000 for the fourth quarter of 2009 compared to $154,000 for the fourth quarter of 2008. Gross margin percentage for the fourth quarter of 2009 was 37% compared to 50% for the fourth quarter of 2008. The decrease in gross margin percentage was primarily due to a revenue mix shift toward lower margin products. Fourth quarter 2009 operating expenses included a $1.2 million restructuring charge. The charge relates to the plan announced in December of 2009 and was undertaken to align the company’s spending with recent revenue trends and to enable additional investments in strategic growth areas. The plan is expected to result in savings of over $1.5 million in annualized operating costs. The company reported a net loss of $4.0 million, or $(0.57) per share for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $(0.20) per share in the fourth quarter of 2008.

“2009 continued to be challenging for the telecommunications industry, and this was reflected in our financial results,” said Gregory B. Kalush, CEO and President of Interphase. “Deployment of new telecommunications equipment retreated in most major economies across the world. During this difficult period, we reduced spending during the fourth quarter to trim excess skills and conserve cash as the market picture grew less certain. During 2010 we will embark upon a multi-tiered strategy to sell our existing products to new customers and into new markets and to diversify our company into new and attractive markets by offering new products and services.”

For the full year of 2009, revenues decreased slightly to $25.6 million, compared to $26.2 million for the full year of 2008. Gross margin percentage decreased to 48% for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared to 53% for the year ended December 31, 2008. Included in operating expenses for 2009 and 2008 were restructuring charges of $1.2 million and $403,000, respectively. Net loss for 2009 was $5.6 million, or $(0.81) per share compared to a net loss of $3.0 million, or ($0.46) per share for 2008. The company’s balance sheet continues to be strong with a working capital position of $21.3 million, including cash and marketable securities of $17.8 million on December 31, 2009.
