Interphase Announces 2002 Second Quarter Financial Results

7/18/2002 - Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH) today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2002. Revenues for the quarter were $6.0 million, versus $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2001. While older legacy products continued to decline, its newer, telecom controller revenue climbed to 47% of revenue versus 19% one year ago and doubled from the second quarter of 2001, to $2.8 million.

The company recorded a net loss of $1.5 million during the quarter versus a loss of $6.0 million in the second quarter 2001, while the loss per share was $ (0.27) versus $ (1.05) for the same periods, respectively. Cash and securities rose $3.2 million during the quarter to $22.6 million.

"While the telecommunications sector continues to stall, we were able to double our revenues in telecom controllers and increase our cash position," stated Greg Kalush, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Some of our telecom design wins have started to go into production status and we expect further growth in the sector in spite of its current outlook. We hope this is a sign that telecommunications will begin a recovery albeit slower than we would like. During the quarter we announced our new iWARE enhanced software suites designed to optimize I/O performance as well as dramatically reduce telecommunication equipment manufacturers' software development efforts, so our customers will benefit greatly by using these software suites along with our board-level products. We believe our commitment to software that complements our boards will establish us as a premier infrastructure provider and lead to increasing design wins."
