13 Nov 2016 | Editor

eMagin Corp. has announced financial results and corporate highlights for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were US$ 4.3 million, down 20% from the third quarter of 2015. Product revenues totalled US$ 3.5 million, 24% less than third quarter last year, primarily due to lower volumes from maturing military programs partially offset by a lower average price due to product mix. R&D contract revenues totalled approximately US$ 769,000, consistent with the third quarter last year.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2016, including R&D expenses, increased to US$ 3.7 million from US$ 3.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter operating expenses reflect higher spending on the development and marketing of our consumer products as well as the costs associated with the consolidation of the Company’s finance and procurement functions.

Operating loss for the third quarter increased to US$ 2.4 million from a loss of US$ 2.2 million in the third quarter last year. Net loss for third quarter of 2016 increased to US$ 2.4 million, or US$ 0.08 per basic and diluted share, from a loss of US$ 2.2 million, or US$ 0.09 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015.

At September 30, 2016, the Company had approximately US$ 6.9 million of cash and cash equivalents compared to US$ 9.3 million of cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2015. During the quarter we increased our R&D investment and began to build inventory for our consumer product launch.
