PixTech Announces First Quarter 2000 Results
SANTA CLARA, Calif. and ROUSSET, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2000--PixTech, Inc. (Nasdaq:PIXT)(EASDAQ:PIXT) today announced financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2000.
Revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2000 were $2 million, compared to $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 1999. The net loss for the first quarter of 2000 was $6.7 million or $0.16 per share of common stock, compared to a net loss of $7.4 million or $0.22 per share of common stock in the fourth quarter of 1999. During the first quarter PixTech issued 7,793,925 shares of common stock, mainly in connection with the completion of the conversion of the note issued to Sumitomo Corporation, the conversion of the majority of the series E preferred stock into common stock and the Kingsbridge Capital equity line of credit.
As a result of these transactions, the company was able to reduce the current and long-term debt by $12.6 million during the first quarter of 2000. In April 2000, the company received $15 million upon the completion of the private placement to United Microelectronics Corporation approved by the stockholders at a special meeting on January 18, 2000. This subsequent $15 million investment is in addition to, and is not reflected in, the March 31, 2000 balance sheet.
On April 3, 2000 the company reported an additional $6.3 million contract from DARPA. This will enable the company to continue the 12.1-inch color FED program using the same basic FED technology as the 7.0-inch color program.
During the first quarter, PixTech sampled a new monochrome display, the FE524G1. The FE524G1 has video rate capability, 6 bit gray scale and the brightness exceeds 350 fL (foot-lambert). The FE524G1 uses the same display as the FE524 with different electronics.
Dieter Mezger, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am pleased with the company`s accomplishments in the first quarter of 2000. However, our main focus and challenge remains our production in Taiwan. Although the volume of finished products remains small, we are continuing to make progress. Our cathode production has met and exceeded the planned yield numbers and has remained stable during the past few weeks. Our efforts in the current quarter are centered on improving assembly and final test yields. Our engineering teams together with the Unipac experts feel confident that we can improve this part of the production process during the quarter."
