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.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
As ridesharing competitors and enhanced services increase, notable changes are occurring in the transportation model. Despite the cost-effective means and flexibility of ridesharing, both drivers and users will need to be aware of the connected environment and how it will impact the ridesharing experience. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Timothy Evavold, Executive Director Automotive at Covisint, will discuss key challenges and solutions to powering a ride sharing and/or multimodal model in the a...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
IoT is fundamentally transforming the auto industry, turning the vehicle into a hub for connected services, including safety, infotainment and usage-based insurance. Auto manufacturers – and businesses across all verticals – have built an entire ecosystem around the Connected Car, creating new customer touch points and revenue streams. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Macario Namie, Head of IoT Strategy at Cisco Jasper, will share real-world examples of how IoT transforms the car from a static p...
Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration.
