Impinj Reports First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Impinj today released its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Seattle, WA April 27, 2020 - Impinj, Inc. (NASDAQ: PI), a leading provider and pioneer of RAIN RFID solutions, today released its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

“Our first-quarter revenue was strong, setting another company record,” said Chris Diorio, Impinj co-founder and CEO. “Despite the prevailing sentiment in many of our end markets being negative, there are bright spots as well, such as in omnichannel retail and supply chain and logistics. Regardless, considering the significant uncertainties looking forward, we feel it is prudent to not give quantitative guidance for the second quarter.”

First Quarter 2020 Financial Summary

  • Revenue of $47.8 million
  • GAAP gross margin of 44.7%; non-GAAP gross margin of 46.1%
  • GAAP net loss of $4.3 million, or loss of $0.19 per diluted share using 22.4 million shares
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $3.0 million
  • Non-GAAP net income of $2.9 million, or income of $0.13 per diluted share using 23.0 million shares

A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP information is contained in the tables below. Additionally, descriptions of these non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” sections below.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Considerations

Impinj is continuing to monitor the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on its business, including how the pandemic will affect customers, end-users, suppliers and other business partners. However, given the uncertainty regarding the duration and severity of the epidemiological, economic and operational impacts of Covid-19, as of the date of this report Impinj cannot reasonably estimate the pandemic’s impact on its operating results for the second quarter of 2020 or future periods.

For additional information regarding the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact on our business, operating results, financial condition and prospects, please see Impinj’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q expected to be filed on the date hereof.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP financial measures by financial statement line items that exclude, if applicable for the periods presented, the effects of stock-based compensation, depreciation, investigation costs, restructuring costs and other expenses that we believe do not reflect our core operating performance. Our key non-GAAP performance measures include adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss), the definitions of which are below. We use adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) as key measures to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operating plans. We believe excluding those items can provide useful information for period-to-period comparisons of our business to allow investors and others to understand and evaluate our operating results in the same manner as it does for our management and board of directors. Our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding, if applicable for the periods presented, the effects of stock-based compensation; depreciation; investigation costs; restructuring costs; other income, net; interest expense; loss on debt extinguishment and income tax benefit (expense).

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)

We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding, if applicable for the periods presented, the effects of stock-based compensation; depreciation; investigation costs; restructuring costs; amortization of debt discount related to the equity component of our senior convertible notes; and prepayment penalty on debt extinguishment. Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be accounted for as separate liability and equity components in a manner that reflects our non-convertible debt borrowing rate. This results in the debt component being treated as though it was issued at a discount, with the debt discount being amortized as additional non-cash interest expense over the term of the notes using the effective interest method. As a result, we believe that excluding this non-cash interest expense attributable to the debt discount in calculating our non-GAAP net income (loss) is useful because this interest expense is not indicative of our ongoing operational performance. We incurred prepayment penalty on debt extinguishment in connection with the December 2019 repayment of our senior credit facility, which was included in loss on debt extinguishment in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. Because of the non-recurring nature of the prepayment fees, we believe this expense is not representative of ongoing operation costs.
