Interphase Announces First Quarter 2010 Financial Results

PLANO, Texas – April 22, 2010 -- Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), a leading global provider of solutions for converged communications networks, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2010. 

Revenues for the first quarter of 2010 were $3.8 million compared to $8.4 million for the first quarter of 2009.  Revenues in the quarter were primarily impacted by broadband telecom revenues, which decreased to $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2010 compared to $8.0 million for the first quarter of 2009.  Professional services revenues decreased to $160,000 for the first quarter of 2010 compared to $249,000 for the first quarter of 2009.  Gross margin percentage for the first quarter of 2010 was 49% compared to 60% for the first quarter of 2009.  The decrease in gross margin percentage was primarily due to reduced utilization of the manufacturing facility and, to a lesser degree, a revenue mix shift toward lower margin products.  The company reported a net loss of $2.4 million, or $(0.34) per share for the first quarter of 2010, compared to a net income of $707,000, or $0.11 per fully diluted share in the first quarter of 2009.  The company has a working capital position of $19.0 million, including cash and marketable securities of $15.9 million on March 31, 2010.    

“Our business in the telecommunications industry continues to be very difficult to predict or operate within,” said Gregory B. Kalush, CEO and President of Interphase.  “We acknowledged that too much of our business has been tied to this market; so last year we began implementing a multi-tiered strategy to sell our products and capabilities into new customers within new markets in order to diversify our company.  Our goal is to diversify our business into new and attractive markets by offering our products and an expanded list of high quality services.  During the first quarter, we invested in the necessary organizational and strategic changes to meet this goal.”
