China Digital TV Announces Unaudited Third Quarter 2012 Results

BEIJING, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STV) ("China Digital TV" or the "Company"), the leading provider of conditional access ("CA") systems to China's expanding digital television market, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights for the Third Quarter 2012

  • Net revenues in the third quarter of 2012 were US$20.4 million, representing a 21.4% decrease from the same period in 2011 and a 13.3% decrease from the second quarter of 2012.
  • China Digital TV shipped approximately 3.84 million smart cards in the third quarter of 2012, compared to 4.66 million in the same period in 2011 and 3.74 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Gross margin in the third quarter of 2012 was 75.8%, compared to 80.5% in the same period in 2011 and 76.4% in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Net loss per American depositary share (one ADS representing one ordinary share), or ADS, in the third quarter of 2012 was US$ 0.19, compared to diluted earnings per ADS of US$0.17 in the same period in 2011 and US$0.12 in the second quarter of 2012.

"China Digital TV saw a modest increase in sequential card shipments during the third quarter 2012 as China's CA market continued to be impacted by delays from some provincial-level cable operators," said Mr. Jianhua Zhu, China Digital TV's chairman and chief executive officer. "Our leading position in China's CA market should enable China Digital TV to continue to benefit from China's ongoing cable penetration and digitalization as well as the conversion to high-definition set-top boxes over the next few years. In addition, China Digital TV continues to make good progress diversifying our product offerings and developing value-added services and partnership opportunities."

"With provincial network consolidation continuing to move toward completion, cable operators have initiated a new round of bidding for smart cards," added Mr. Dong Li, China Digital TV's president. "Following our success winning bids in Sichuan and Henan during the second quarter 2012, we won bids in Shanxi and Zhejiang in the third quarter, as well as in locations where we have not previously been active like Ningxia. As the market leader, we believe that China Digital TV is well positioned to secure additional contracts during this new round of bidding."

Mr. Zhenwen Liang, China Digital TV's chief financial officer, commented, "While our bottom line was impacted by an impairment charge and a withholding tax related to our recently announced special dividend, these items are non-recurring and we have confidence in the strength of China Digital TV's underlying business and operations. We remain optimistic about the long-term demand in China's CA market."

Third Quarter 2012 Results

(Note: Unless otherwise stated, all financial statement measures stated in this press release are based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP").)

In the third quarter of 2012, China Digital TV generated net revenues of US$20.4 million, a decrease of 21.4% from the third quarter of 2011 and a decrease of 13.3% from the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decrease in net revenues was principally due to a decrease in the shipment volume of smart cards. The quarter-over-quarter decrease in net revenues was primarily due to a decrease in the sales of other products, such as multimedia home entertainment boxes and surface mounted device chipsets.

In the third quarter of 2012, revenues from the Company's top five customers accounted for 22.9% of total revenues, compared to 27.8% in the second quarter of 2012.

Revenues from smart cards and other products were US$19.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of 21.2% from the same period in 2011 and a decrease of 12.0% from the second quarter of 2012. Sales of smart cards and other products accounted for 94.8% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012, compared to 93.7% in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decrease was principally due to a decrease in the shipment volume of smart cards. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to a decrease in the sales of other products, such as multimedia home entertainment boxes and surface mounted device chipsets.

Revenues from services were US$1.1 million in the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of 20.6% from the same period in 2011 and a decrease of 28.5% from the second quarter of 2012. Service revenues accounted for 5.2% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decrease were primarily due to decreases in revenue from head-end system integration, licensing income and royalty income.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 was US$15.4 million, a decrease of 26.0% from the same period in 2011 and a decrease of 14.0% from the second quarter of 2012. Gross margin, which is equal to gross profit divided by net revenues, was 75.8% in the third quarter of 2012, compared to 80.5% in the same period in 2011 and 76.4% in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin was primarily due to a decrease in revenue from smart cards sales. The quarter-over-quarter decrease in gross margin was mainly attributable to a decrease in revenue from surface mounted device chipsets, which have a higher gross margin than other products.

In the third quarter of 2012, the average selling price (the "ASP") of smart cards decreased by 1.1% compared to the second quarter of 2012. In addition, the unit cost of smart cards increased by 0.3% compared to the second quarter of 2012.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were US$10.4 million, an increase of 8.7% from the same period in 2011 and a decrease of 1.0% from the second quarter of 2012.

-- Research and development expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were US$5.0 million, an increase of 26.6% from the same period in 2011 and an increase of 16.7% from the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in the number of research and development staff, which was partially offset by a decrease in share-based compensation expenses relating to options granted to employees in 2011. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to an increase in the number of research and development staff and project development expenses.

-- Selling and marketing expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were US$3.2 million, an increase of 9.2% from the same period in 2011 and a decrease of 5.5% from the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in both the headcount and average salaries of sales and marketing staff, which was partially offset by a decrease in marketing expenditures. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a decrease in marketing expenditures.

-- General and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were US$2.2 million, a decrease of 17.5% from the same period in 2011 and a decrease of 21.8% from the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decrease in share-based compensation expenses relating to options granted to employees in 2011, which was partially offset by an increase in both the headcount and average compensation of general and administrative staff. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a decrease in allowance for doubtful accounts.

Income from operations in the third quarter of 2012 was US$5.0 million, a 55.7% decrease from the same period in 2011 and a 32.5 % decrease from the second quarter of 2012.

Operating margin, defined as income from operations divided by net revenues, in the third quarter of 2012 was 24.5%, compared to 43.4% in the same period in 2011 and 31.5% in the second quarter of 2012.

Impairment loss on long-term investments in the third quarter of 2012 was US$4.5 million. The Company fully accrued an impairment charge of US$4.5 million related to its investment in 3DiJoy Corporation ("3DiJoy"). In May 2010, the Company invested US$6.0 million in 3DiJoy, a provider of motion-sensing video game solutions for cable set top boxes, PCs and other consumer electronic devices. As 3DiJoy has consistently failed to achieve profitability and has been experiencing financial difficulties since early 2012, the Company determined to fully accrue such impairment charge based on the valuation conducted by a third party valuation firm.

Income tax expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were US$13.6 million, compared to US$2.5 million in the same period in 2011 and US$1.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily due to an increase in deferred income tax, which was mainly attributable to the accrual of a US$12.1 million withholding tax related to the undistributed retained earnings of the Company's subsidiaries located in PRC as a result of the Company's determination to distribute part of the undistributed retained earnings of the Company's PRC subsidiaries. The Company expects to continue accruing and recording withholding tax for undistributed retained earnings of the Company's PRC subsidiaries in the foreseeable future.

Net loss attributable to non-controlling interest in the third quarter of 2012 was US$0.4 million, an increase of 9.1% from the same period in 2011 and an increase of 9.7% from the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were largely due to an increase in net loss incurred by the Company's majority-owned subsidiaries.

Net loss attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. in the third quarter of 2012 was US$11.4 million, compared to a US$10.3 million net income attributable to China Digital TV in the same period in 2011 and a US$7.1 million net income attributable to China Digital TV in the second quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP net loss attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. defined as net loss excluding certain one time or non-cash expenses, such as impairment loss on long-term investments, share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets from business acquisitions and equity method investments, in the third quarter of 2012 was US$6.2 million, compared to a US$12.2 million non-GAAP net income attributable to China Digital TV in the same period in 2011 and a US$8.0 million non-GAAP net income attributable to China Digital TV in the second quarter of 2012. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

As of September 30, 2012, China Digital TV had cash and cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaling US$191.6 million. In the third quarter of 2012, cash flow generated from operations was approximately US$10.4 million.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. shareholders excludes certain one-time or non-cash expenses, such as impairment loss on long-term investments, share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets acquired from business acquisitions and equity method investments. The Company believes that the non-GAAP net income (loss) provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance and liquidity by excluding certain one-time or non-cash expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash flow perspective. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to this additional information in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods.
