 Netlist Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results
   Wednesday, November 01, 2017 4:15:00 PM ET

Netlist, Inc. (NLST ) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Revenues for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017, were $9.0 million, compared to revenues of $2.6 million for the quarter ended October 1, 2016, an increase of 248%. Gross profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, was $0.7 million, or 8.0% of revenues, compared to a gross profit of $9,000, or 0.3% of revenues, for the quarter ended October 1, 2016.

Net loss for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017, was ($3.1) million, or ($0.05) loss per share, compared to a net loss in the prior year period of ($4.4) million, or ($0.08) loss per share. These results include stock-based compensation expense of $0.3 million for both quarters ended September 30, 2017 and October 1, 2016.

As of September 30, 2017, cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash were $11.0 million, total assets were $20.7 million, working capital was $8.8 million, total debt, net of debt discount and accrued interest, was $17.2 million, and stockholders’ deficit was ($5.3) million.

"During the third quarter we received net proceeds of $4.4 million from a registered direct offering, reduced cash burn to $1.3 million, and increased net product revenues by 248% versus the prior-year period," said C.K. Hong, Netlist’s Chief Executive Officer. "Yesterday we filed our second complaint against S.K. hynix at the International Trade Commission, targeting billions of dollars of unlicensed S.K. hynix server memory products. We also shipped our first HybriDIMM(TM) evaluation units to select customers and are in the process of actively pursuing the next phase of HybriDIMM’s commercialization with a number of parties, including Samsung."

Adjusted EBITDA (loss) was ($2.6) million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to adjusted EBITDA (loss) of ($3.8) million for the prior year period. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are described below under the heading "Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure net loss below under the heading "Unaudited Schedule Reconciling GAAP Net Loss to Non-GAAP EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA."

Conference Call Information C.K. Hong, Chief Executive Officer, and Gail Sasaki, Chief Financial Officer, will host an investor conference call today, November 1, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to review Netlist’s results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. The dial-in number for the call is 1-412-317-5443. The live webcast and archived replay of the call can be accessed for 90 days in the Investors section of Netlist’s website at

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Certain of the information in this press release, including EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. Netlist believes this information is useful to investors because it provides a basis for measuring the operating performance of Netlist’s business excluding certain items that it believes are not attributable to or reflective of its core operating results. Netlist defines EBITDA as net loss calculated and presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), plus interest expense, net, plus provisions for income taxes, and plus depreciation and amortization; and Netlist defines adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus stock-based compensation expense and plus (minus) other expense (income), net. Netlist expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the line items added to or subtracted from net loss to calculate EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA; accordingly, the exclusion of these items in the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Netlist’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures along with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure net loss in evaluating Netlist’s operating performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in conformity with GAAP, and non-GAAP financial measures as reported by Netlist may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.
