TechFaith Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

BEIJING, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company") today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year ended December 31, 2013.

For the fourth quarter of 2013, TechFaith reported total net revenues of US$31.2 million compared to US$29.9 million in the third quarter of 2013. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$4.0 million compared to US$4.9 million in the third quarter of 2013. Gross margin for the fourth quarter was 12.9% compared to 16.3% in the previous quarter, primarily reflecting business mix. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased to US$8.8 million compared to US$4.7 million for the third quarter of 2013, primarily due to the impairment of long-lived assets in the amount of US$3.1 million and the impairment of goodwill in the amount of US$1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Net loss attributed to TechFaith for the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$2.1 million or US$0.0390 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS compared to net income of US$0.3 million or US$0.0049 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS in the third quarter of 2013.

For the full year ended December 31, 2013, TechFaith reported total net revenues of US$119.5 million compared to US$137.7 million for the full year ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to declines in revenues from the Company's gaming business and its branded phone business. Gross profit for the full year 2013 was US$16.8 million, compared to US$31.3 million for the full year 2012. Gross margin for the full year 2013 was 14.1%, compared to 22.7% for the full year 2012. Operating expenses for the full year 2013 was US$22.0 million compared to US$31.1 million for the full year 2012. Net loss attributed to TechFaith for full year 2013 was US$2.5 million or US$0.0467 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS, compared to a net loss of US$3.3 million or US$0.0622 per basic and diluted weighted average outstanding ADS for the full year 2012.

Miss Ouyang Yuping, TechFaith's Chief Financial Officer, said, "2013 was another very challenging year. Our business continued to be negatively impacted by competition in the mobile phone markets we serve, and continually changing customer demands in the gaming business. Given this difficult environment, we focused on strict operating controls to help us weather the market volatility, reducing operating expenses by 29.2% for the full year 2013 compared to the full year 2012. Importantly, we exited 2013 with a balance of cash and cash equivalents of US$265.6 million. Our balance sheet continues to give us the ability to pursue the long-term business initiatives and strategies that are central to our Company's success, including the ongoing development of our real estate portfolio, even with higher levels of competition and the continuing market volatility in mobile and gaming businesses."

Mr. Deyou Dong, President and Chief Operating Officer of TechFaith, said, "While the market environment remains very challenging and difficult to forecast, our focus is on working with existing customers to develop potential opportunities in both China and in the markets we serve worldwide. We do not expect to see the business conditions materially improve over the near-term. That said, we are seeing some positive movement in our mobile phone business, which depending on the timing of customers' orders could potentially become revenue generating for TechFaith later this year. The opportunities we are focused on are those where TechFaith has competitive advantages: lower volume, higher feature value content, and tailored design offerings. This encompasses our popular ruggedized lines, as well those catering to the certain sports and healthcare needs. We will continue to develop and launch more ruggedized and tailored models to satisfy the demands of both domestic and international clients, as well as enterprise solutions targeting specific industries."

Mr. Defu Dong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TechFaith, said, "We continued to focus on our core areas of offering high level ruggedized mobile phones throughout 2013. In addition, we have also expanded into different ruggedized products categories such as 'Extreme Digital Camera,' 'Extreme Smart Watches' and 'Ultimate Smart Headphones'. This has allowed us to support customers with complex and unique needs that larger handset companies were not suited to provide. We have taken an even more cautious approach over the past year to ensure our long-term success. Our focus remains on creating long-term value for both TechFaith and our shareholders. In-line with this view, we have maintained a strong balance sheet and not pursued dilutive acquisitions that would only serve as costly distractions. Instead, we made further progress on the development of our High-Tech Park campus. In Hangzhou, two buildings have been completed. In Beijing 16 buildings are on track to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2014. Overall, we expect that the above positive catalysts in our business will ultimately lead to the creation of value for both TechFaith and our shareholders."

First Quarter of 2014 Outlook

TechFaith currently expects its total revenues for the first quarter of 2014 to be in the range of US$28.0 million to US$30.0 million. The forecast represents TechFaith's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.
