Atomera Provides Second Quarter 2022 Results

LOS GATOS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / ­­ August 2, 2022 ­­ / Atomera Incorporated (NASDAQ:ATOM), a semiconductor materials and technology licensing company, today provided a corporate update and announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Recent Company Highlights

  • Atomera grew its customer pipeline leveraging improved capacity and fewer travel restrictions
  • Promising interim test results were achieved from ongoing wafer runs
  • Whitepaper published detailing breakthroughs in MST for leading-edge process technologies

Management Commentary

"The test results from recent wafer runs are confirmation that MST can deliver stronger benefits than anticipated in vital applications, and further, we were able to accurately model such improvements via MSTcad," said Scott Bibaud, President and CEO. "Face-to-face customer activity has accelerated with the reduction in COVID-related travel restrictions, enabling the company to add a customer to the pipeline, and to move existing engagements forward. We believe the industry capacity outlook and the new Chips and Science Act are tailwinds for Atomera as we collaborate with customers toward commercial adoption of MST."

Financial Results

The Company incurred a net loss of ($4.5) million, or ($0.20) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss of ($3.7) million, or ($0.17) per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) in the second quarter of 2022 was a loss of ($3.5) million compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of ($2.9) million in the second quarter of 2021.

The Company had $21.8 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2022, compared to $28.7 million as of December 31, 2021.

The total number of shares outstanding was 23.5 million as of June 30, 2022.

Note about Non-­GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the unaudited results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, in this press release, Atomera presents adjusted EBITDA, which is a non­-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by taking net loss and eliminating the impacts of interest, depreciation, amortization and stock­-based compensation. Our definition of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the definitions of similarly-titled measures used by other companies. We believe that this non­-GAAP financial measure, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of our reported GAAP results, provides useful information to investors by providing a more focused measure of operating results. This metric is used as part of the Company's internal reporting to evaluate its operations and the performance of senior management. A table reconciling this measure to the comparable GAAP measure is available in the accompanying financial tables below.

Safe Harbor

This press release contains forward-­looking statements concerning Atomera Incorporated, including statements regarding the prospects for the semiconductor industry generally and the ability of our MST technology to significantly improve semiconductor performance. Those forward-­looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially. Among those factors are: (1) the fact that, to date, we have only recognized minimal engineering services and licensing revenues and we have not yet commenced principal revenue producing operations or entered into a definitive royalty-based manufacturing and distribution license agreement with regard to our MST technology, thus subjecting us to all of the risks inherent in an early-stage enterprise; (2) risks related to our ability to successfully complete the milestones in our joint development agreements or, even if successfully completed, to reach a commercial distribution license with our JDA customers; (3) risks related to our ability to advance the licensing arrangements with our initial integration licensees to royalty-based manufacturing and distribution licenses or our ability to add other licensees; (4) risks related to our ability to raise sufficient capital, as and when needed, to pursue the further development, licensing and commercialization of our MST technology; (5) our ability to protect our proprietary technology, trade secrets and know­-how and (6) those other risks disclosed in the section "Risk Factors" included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 15, 2022. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any forward­-looking statements. We do not undertake, and specifically disclaim any obligation, to update or revise such statements to reflect new circumstances or unanticipated events as they occur.
