SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 5, 2010 — Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ: IMMR), the leader in developing and licensing haptics technology, today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010.
Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 were $8.5 million, an increase of 27% compared to revenues of $6.7 million for the second quarter of 2009. Net income for the second quarter of 2010 was $180,000, or $0.01 per share. This compares to net loss of $(8.9) million or $(0.32) per share, for the second quarter of 2009.
“Our second quarter performance reflects strong growth in our royalty and license revenue driven by continued traction for our haptic solutions across a variety of end markets. In addition, we benefitted from the reconciliation of certain customers’ royalty reports in the gaming market and from non-recurring revenue in the medical business of approximately $1.1 million,” said Immersion CEO Victor Viegas. “With the prior corporate headwinds largely behind us, our ability to focus on execution, coupled with a strong value proposition and favorable industry trends are allowing us to post strong growth in our ongoing business. As we move forward, we remain on track to meet or exceed the high end of our $25 - $30 million annual revenue outlook, and for the third quarter, based on our current visibility, we expect revenues to be in the range of $6.0 million to $6.5 million, which is consistent with historical seasonal trends. We remain excited about our ability to capitalize on the opportunities within the large and rapidly growing markets we serve.”
Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $18.2 million, an increase of 28% compared to revenues of $14.2 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2009. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $(2.5) million, or $(0.09) per share as compared to net loss of $(15.0) million, or $(0.54) per share, in the same period last year.
As of June 30, 2010, Immersion’s cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $63.9 million, compared to $64.6 million as of March 31, 2010.
