Liquidmetal Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

November 15, 2021 GMT

LAKE FOREST, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2021--

Liquidmetal ® Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: LQMT), a leading authority on commercial applications of amorphous alloys, reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Management Commentary

“During the third quarter, we transitioned over to a new management team, implemented reductions to our overhead expenses and renewed our focus on growing the business for the long term,” said Tony Chung, CEO. “I look forward to providing our investors with an update on the business during our 2021 year-end conference call to be scheduled in conjunction with the filing of our annual 10-K.”

Q3 2021 Financial Summary

During the third quarter of 2021, the Company generated $406 thousand in revenue through a combination of volume production deliveries and initial part deliveries for new application development initiatives under existing contracts.

Cost of goods sold was $319 thousand in Q3 2021 and $171 thousand in Q3 2020. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in revenue, with a higher amount related to volume production deliveries, resulting in higher gross margin percentages.

Selling, marketing, general and administrative expense was $1.6 million in Q3 2021 and $1.1 million in Q3 2020. The increase in expenses was primarily attributable to higher stock compensation expense for stock options issued to the Company’s new CEO and modifications to stock options as well as accruals made pursuant to employee separation agreements.

Research and development expenses were $14 thousand and $30 thousand in Q3 2021 and Q3 2020, respectively. Expenses continue to remain low due to a significant decrease in internal development initiatives, in accordance with the 2019 Restructuring Plan.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $5.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, as well as $22.0 million in investments in debt securities. Those readily available sources of liquidity are accessible to advance the Company’s existing operations and strategy for long term growth.

For a more detailed and complete analysis of the Company’s financial results, please refer to the Company’s September 30, 2021 Form 10-Q, which was filed earlier today.
