MicroVision Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results

REDMOND, Wash., July 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display and sensing technology, today announced second quarter 2019 results.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2019 was $1.2 million, compared to $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2018. MicroVision's net loss for the second quarter of 2019 was $9.0 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to a net loss of $8.5 million, or $0.10 per share for the second quarter of 2018.

“We completed the required work under the development portion of the April 2017 contract and this month we received final payment for that work, bringing the total development payments to $15 million. This month we expect to begin shipping production units to this customer,” said Perry Mulligan, MicroVision’s Chief Executive Officer. “Additionally, to enable product launches on a global scale for our customers we developed and demonstrated a module that enables Class 1 laser products with the same brightness as Class 3R. We believe our Class 1 laser solution for interactive display and display-only products increases the market size and ease of launch for our customers while maintaining the performance characteristics they value,”  Mulligan added.
