Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS), a leading developer and provider of 5G/4G chips and modules, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights:

Revenue: Revenue was $12.2 million, an increase of 39.4% compared to the first quarter of 2020 and an increase of 54.6% compared to the second quarter of 2019.

Gross margin: Gross margin was 48.3% compared to 51.3% in the first quarter of 2020, and compared to 37.7% in the second quarter of 2019.

Operating loss: Operating loss was $5.6 million compared to $7.8 million in the first quarter of 2020 and $6.9 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Net loss: Net loss was $19.0 million, or ($0.70) per diluted ADS, compared to $15.3 million, or ($0.64) per ADS, in the first quarter of 2020 and $9.2 million, or ($0.39) per ADS, in the second quarter of 2019. Net loss in the second quarter of 2020 includes $9.1 million loss on revaluation of the embedded derivative arising from the amendments to the convertible debt made in March 2020. The loss on the revaluation was $5.6 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Note: Net loss and net loss per diluted ADS for the first and second quarters of 2020 include the non-cash impact of the March 20, 2020 amendments to the Company's five issues of convertible debt. As the amendments give the Company the option to change certain terms of the convertible debt rendering the equity conversion variable, IFRS accounting requires that the conversion option be considered as an embedded derivative, which must be marked to market each quarter with the change in value reflected as a non-cash financial gain or loss. Previously, the estimated value of the conversion option was recorded through equity. The results for the first quarter of 2020 have been updated from the preliminary figures announced on April 23, 2020 to reflect this accounting, following completion of the valuation analyses subsequent to publication of the first quarter results.

Non-IFRS Net loss and diluted loss per ADS: Excluding the non-cash stock-based compensation, the non-cash impact of the fair-value and effective interest adjustments related to the convertible debt with embedded derivatives and other financings, the non-cash impact of convertible debt amendments, and deferred tax benefit or expense related to the convertible debt and other financings, non-IFRS net loss was $7.5 million, or ($0.28) per ADS, compared to $8.7 million, or ($0.36) per ADS in the first quarter of 2020, and $7.9 million, or ($0.33) per ADS, in the second quarter of 2019.

Cash: Cash, cash equivalents and short-term deposits at June 30, 2020 totaled $35.5 million compared to $5.1 million at March 31, 2020.

"The second quarter was a pivotal one for us," said Georges Karam, CEO of Sequans. "We achieved excellent sequential growth in both our Broadband IoT and Massive IoT businesses, significantly reduced our operating loss, strengthened our balance sheet, secured several key design wins, continued building a channel pipeline, and met several important milestones related to our strategic partnership for 5G.

"Broadband IoT revenue was particularly strong in Q2 because we were able to mitigate COVID-19 related supply issues and satisfy a significant portion of the extra demand for portable routers generated by the measures taken to deal with the pandemic. We will continue to fulfill this backlog in Q3, and we believe ongoing Broadband IoT demand will normalize at a higher level than we experienced pre-coronavirus. Our Massive IoT business continues to experience strong demand, in particular related to equipment for health monitoring, augmenting the overall ramp of this business segment.

"We expect continued sequential growth in both Massive IoT and Broadband IoT during the remaining quarters of this year, with the positive impact on demand from the coronavirus likely to continue to offset any negative impact. Recent design wins, our strong position in CBRS, a growing channel pipeline and additional platform wins that could close during the second half of 2020 together support continued strong growth next year. The excellent progress we are making on 5G technology continues to attract very strong interest from both prospective new customers and potential strategic partners, serving to further increase our confidence in our long-term success."

Q3 2020 Outlook

The following statement is based on management’s current assumptions and expectations and assumes no increase in the severity or duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. This statement is forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. Sequans undertakes no obligation to update this statement.

Sequans is targeting a sequential increase in revenue of at least 10% for the third quarter of 2020, which would cause revenue in the first nine months of 2020 to be greater than the revenue for all of 2019. The backlog of orders and indications regarding customer demand support this goal, but the company also sees ongoing risks related to COVID-19.

Conference Call and Webcast

Sequans plans to conduct a teleconference and live webcast to discuss the financial results for the second quarter of 2020 today, July 28, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. EDT /14:00 CEST. To participate in the live call, analysts and investors should dial 800-263-0877, or 646-828-8143 if outside the U.S. When prompted, provide the event title or access code: 4258091. A live and archived webcast of the call will be available from the Investors section of the Sequans website at www.sequans.com/investors/. An audio replay of the conference call will be available until August 4, 2020 by dialing toll free 888-203-1112 or 719-457-0820 from outside the U.S., using the following access code: 4258091.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains projections and other forward-looking statements regarding future events or our future financial performance and potential financing sources. All statements other than present and historical facts and conditions contained in this release, including any statements regarding expected revenue for the third and fourth quarter of 2020, future results of operations and financial positions, business strategy and plans, expectations for Massive IoT and Broadband and Critical IoT sales, the ability to continue to operate remotely (as required) at high levels of productivity, increasing backlog of orders, the impact of the coronavirus on our manufacturing operations, and on customer demand, and our objectives for future operations, are forward-looking statements (within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended). These statements are only predictions and reflect our current beliefs and expectations with respect to future events and are based on assumptions and subject to risk and uncertainties and subject to change at any time. We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time. Given these risks and uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Actual events or results may differ materially from those contained in the projections or forward-looking statements. Some of the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained herein include, without limitation: (i) the contraction or lack of growth of markets in which we compete and in which our products are sold, (ii) unexpected increases in our expenses, including manufacturing expenses, (iii) our inability to adjust spending quickly enough to offset any unexpected revenue shortfall, (iv) delays or cancellations in spending by our customers, (v) unexpected average selling price reductions, (vi) the significant fluctuation to which our quarterly revenue and operating results are subject due to cyclicality in the wireless communications industry and transitions to new process technologies, (vii) our inability to anticipate the future market demands and future needs of our customers, (viii) our inability to achieve new design wins or for design wins to result in shipments of our products at levels and in the timeframes we currently expect, (ix) our inability to enter into and execute on strategic alliances, (x) (our ability to meet performance milestones under strategic license agreements, (xi) the impact of natural disasters on our sourcing operations and supply chain, (xii) our ability to remediate material weaknesses in our internal controls relating to the impact of accounting changes relating to deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities related to the application of IFRS to deferred taxes on debt instruments with equity components, (xiii) the impact of the coronavirus on the ability to operate our business and research, production of our products or demand for our products by customers whose supply chain is impacted or whose operations have been impacted by government shelter-in-place or similar orders, (xiv) the impact of the coronavirus on capital markets and our ability to raise debt and equity financing, and (xv) other factors detailed in documents we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Use of Non-IFRS/non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS, we disclose certain non-IFRS, or non-GAAP, financial measures. These measures exclude the non-cash stock-based compensation and the non-cash impacts of convertible debt amendments, effective interest adjustments related to the convertible debt with embedded derivatives and other financings, and deferred tax benefit or expense related to the convertible debt and other financings. We believe that these measures can be useful to facilitate comparisons among different companies. These non-GAAP measures have limitations in that the non-GAAP measures we use may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. We seek to compensate for this limitation by providing a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measures in the table attached to this press release.
