GigaMedia Announces Third-Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Reading Time: 6 minutes read

TAIPEI, Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced its third-quarter 2021 unaudited financial results.

Comments from Management

In the third quarter of 2021, GigaMedia reported revenues of $1.56 million, with a gross profit of $0.88 million, an operating loss of $0.84 million and a net loss of $0.73 million. Total revenues increased by 27.7% if compared to last quarter, and gross profit margin improved to 56.1% from 51.7% last quarter.

This third quarter saw a rebound of our revenues due to seasonality exhibited in certain of our licensed games. And the operating expenses were kept in check, resulting to a mild improvement in operating loss.

Meanwhile, we are closing to complete the development of our fast-paced remake of legacy casual games. We believe the remake, as a sustainable business model, will contribute to our steady growth and enhanced profitability for future years.

Third Quarter Overview

  • Revenues increased by 27.7% quarter-on-quarter to approximately $1.56 million from $1.23 million last quarter. The increase was mainly due to our efforts in promoting Tales Runner, a 15-year-old licensed game, during the summer vacation.
  • Consolidated loss from operations for the third quarter of 2021 amounted to $0.84 million, representing a reduction of loss from $1.08 million last quarter.
  • The net asset value was around $4.67 per share.

Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results

GigaMedia Limited is a diversified provider of digital entertainment services. GigaMedia’s digital entertainment service business FunTown develops and operates a suite of digital entertainments in Taiwan and Hong Kong, with focus on mobile games and casual games.

(A) EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is provided as a supplement to results provided in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). (See, “Use of Non-GAAP Measures,” for more details.) 

  • Consolidated revenues for the third quarter of 2021 were $1.56 million, representing an increase of 27.7% compared to $1.23 million in the prior quarter, but decreased by 22.9% year-over-year from $2.03 million the same quarter last year.
  • Consolidated gross profit increased by 38.6% quarter-on-quarter to $0.88 million from $0.63 million last quarter, or decreased by 26.7% year-over-year from $1.20 million in the third quarter last year.
  • Consolidated loss from operation of the third quarter of 2021 was $0.84 million, representing a decrease in loss by approximately $0.24 million from last quarter.
  • Consolidated net loss of the third quarter of 2021 was $0.73 million compared to $0.84 million in last quarter.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at the end of the third quarter of 2021 was $43.2 million, decreasing by 1.1% from $43.7 million last quarter.

Financial Position

GigaMedia maintained its solid financial position, with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash amounting to $43.2 million as of September 30, 2021, or $3.90 per share.

Business Outlook

The following forward-looking statements reflect GigaMedia’s expectations as of October 28, 2021. Given potential changes in economic conditions and consumer spending, the evolving nature of online games, and various other risk factors, including those discussed in the Company’s 2020 Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as referenced below, actual results may differ materially.

For the following quarter, GigaMedia will continue the strategies of internally-driven growth by improving productivities of the existing games, executing effective marketing, and pursuing a steady expansion of customer base.

“Meanwhile, we are also exploring possibilities of expanding our business through strategic investments to maximize shareholders’ value,” stated CEO James Huang.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement GigaMedia’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with US GAAP, the Company uses the following measure defined as non-GAAP by the SEC: EBITDA. Management believes that EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is a useful supplemental measure of performance because it excludes certain non-cash items such as depreciation and amortization and that EBITDA is a measure of performance used by some investors, equity analysts and others to make informed investment decisions. EBITDA is not a recognized earnings measure under GAAP and does not have a standardized meaning. Non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. A limitation of using EBITDA is that it does not include all items that impact the company’s net income for the period. Reconciliations to the GAAP equivalents of the non-GAAP financial measures are provided on the attached unaudited financial statements.
