PSV7000 Ramp and Operating Efficiency Drive Strong Profitability on $5.6M Revenue

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2014) -   Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO), the leading global provider of advanced programming and IP management solutions for flash, flash-memory based intelligent devices and microcontrollers, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Summary

  • Net sales of $5.6 million in Q2 2014.
  • Net income of $447,000 in Q2 2014, compared to a net loss of $624,000 in Q2 2013. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA excluding equity compensation was $687,000 in Q2 2014, compared to a loss of $362,000 in Q2 2013. 
  • Bookings of $6.3 million in Q2 2014.
  • PSV7000 Automated Programming System leads sales growth.
  • New PSV3000 Automated Programming System introduced in Q3 for the Asian market.

"We were very pleased to report strong profits and revenue growth in Q2 led by the PSV7000," said Anthony Ambrose, President and CEO. "We are seeing the positive results of our plan to invest in new products while controlling overall costs to provide strong operating leverage. The PSV7000 continues to exceed bookings expectations with existing and new customers. We won a significant automotive infotainment customer that had previously purchased from a competitor in North America. The fully configured PSV7000 was able to complete their job faster, and at a lower total cost of programming by a significant margin. This is a good example of how we are gaining market share and building a strong recurring revenue base. Bookings continued their strength into July and our sales funnel has grown substantially from the start of the year."

"We announced yesterday our new PSV3000 automated programming system with a focus on new customers in Asian markets," said Ambrose. "The PSV3000 is the cost effective entry point to quality Data I/O programming and will assist customers in the transition from manual to automated programming at low total cost without sacrificing quality and performance."
