Kopin® Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN), a leading developer and provider of transmissive and reflective active matrix liquid crystal and organic light emitting diode (OLED) microdisplays and display subassemblies for military, enterprise, industrial, consumer and medical products, today announced that its BDM® WVGA LCD module and A912 Driver IC have been chosen by Medisim Ltd. for its BinoVision™ goggles.
Medisim Ltd., based in Israel, developed the novel and patented product - BinoVision™, aiming to treat Amblyopia (Lazy Eye). The binocular head-mounted video goggle connects to most streaming video sources (computer, TV, game console, etc.) and uses the content (movies, cartoons, games, music videos, TV shows) to enable brain stimulation. BinoVision™ is content agnostic, so compliance is high. A published clinical study results of the technology showed that dichoptic stimulation of the visual system can significantly improve visual function in just 4 weeks. A feasibility study at Indiana University suggested BinoVision™ goggles, with some modifications, may also be used in the future for glaucoma. In a published study, the technology demonstrated increasing ocular blood flow and retinal perfusion both in glaucoma patients and healthy subjects.
"Kopin’s knowledge of microdisplays and optical modules was very apparent to us during our process of selecting a near-to-eye LCD,” said Ilan Vadai, CEO, Medisim Ltd. "Kopin’s WVGA module and A912 ASIC were key components necessary to bring BinoVision™ to fruition. Kopin’s displays provide a high level of brightness - a key requirement for our application. In addition, with the displays and optics precisely aligned and securely packaged in a binocular module, the ease of integration was unmatched.”
"We are delighted that Medisim Ltd. has selected our products for its BinoVision™ goggles, and want to congratulate them on their success,” said Greg Truman, Head of Industrial and Enterprise Displays, Kopin. "We are excited by the increased interest in our microdisplays for medical products and believe a variety of applications such as surgical, procedural, ophthalmic and others can benefit from the integration of our near-to-eye microdisplays.”
Headquartered in Westborough, Massachusetts, Kopin and its subsidiaries offer a variety of industry leading microdisplay product lines, including LCD, OLED and FLCoS displays. Kopin’s BDM-WVGA (LCD) delivers a large (42?-diagonal size viewed at 6.5-foot distance), crisp image. The lightweight (16g), compact binocular display module integrates two 16: 9 widescreen CyberDisplay® WVGA LVD (854x480 resolution) color filter displays, LED backlights and a pair of pre-aligned high-quality lenses (30 degree field of view) into plastic housing. The BDM-WVGA is driven by Kopin’s A912 controller IC. The BDM-WVGA is a drop in solution, meant to speed up eyewear development and enable OEMs to design-in products quickly and efficiently.

PGT Innovations, Inc. (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in premium windows and doors, including impact-resistant products and products designed to unify indoor/outdoor living spaces, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended July 4, 2020.
Financial Highlights for Second Quarter 2020 compared to Second Quarter 2019
Net sales increased 2 percent, to $203 million, including $23 million from our NewSouth acquisition
Gross profit increased 2 percent, to $74 million
Net income decreased 87 percent, to $2 million, negatively impacted by an $8 million non-cash impairment charge and $4 million in costs and charges relating to our Florida facilities consolidation, both before tax-effect
Net income per diluted share decreased 86 percent, to $0.04, and adjusted net income per diluted share decreased 34 percent, to $0.21
Adjusted EBITDA decreased 15 percent, to $35 million
"Our sales results for the quarter exceeded our internal forecasts, reflecting what we believe is solid demand recovery as the economy reopens,” said Jeff Jackson, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While our organic sales were down 9 percent compared to the prior-year quarter, June order entry for our legacy businesses was up 13 percent versus June in the prior-year and also showed sequential improvement. Our subsidiary NewSouth Window Solutions, which we acquired earlier this year, had a strong quarter, contributing $23 million of revenue and growing orders more than 80 percent compared to the prior-year quarter.”
"While we continue to face macro-economic headwinds in our core Western markets due to the pandemic, solid demand exists in the market for our impact-resistant windows and doors, particularly now that we have entered hurricane season,” added Jackson. "Our ability to capture sales growth in a challenging market is also the result of an overarching strategy of continuous improvement and strong execution of our selling initiatives in recent quarters that are having a favorable impact on our current strength in the market.”
"Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 15 percent to $35 million, driven by lower sales in our organic business and less favorable product mix for the quarter, although we continue to achieve lower direct labor costs and improved operating efficiencies,” said Sherri Baker, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "We recently completed the consolidation of our Orlando, Florida manufacturing facility in order to further improve our operational efficiency, and we expect annual operating expense savings of approximately $3.5 million going forward. We’ve made meaningful progress in improving our Western business unit's direct labor and distribution costs, driving a 140-basis point improvement in each category versus the prior year quarter. However, due to the impacts of the pandemic on the economy and our sales in the west, we recorded a non-cash impairment charge in the second quarter relating to our Western Window Systems trade name.”
"We believe our balance sheet is strong, and we continue to deliver solid free cash flow. We ended the second quarter with total liquidity of $174 million, including a cash balance of $98 million and undrawn revolver capacity of $76 million. Given our cash position and overall liquidity, since the end of our second quarter of 2020, we made voluntary prepayments of borrowings under the term loan totaling $10 million,” added Ms. Baker. "However, because of the difficulty in making longer term forecasts in this environment, we intend to maintain a conservative position towards our capital allocation priorities and preserve cash by reducing discretionary costs and capital expenditures.”
"In lieu of giving guidance for the remainder of the year, we are providing a limited outlook for the quarter ahead. We expect our third quarter 2020 consolidated net sales, inclusive of NewSouth, to increase in the range of 14 to 19 percent as compared to the prior year, reflecting the strength of our order entries during the back half of the second quarter and into July,” concluded Baker.
"I am extremely proud of all our employees for doing an excellent job delivering high-quality products and services for our customers during this difficult period, when all have been personally affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and related lockdowns, and we have demonstrated our commitment to the safety of our team and customers by our willingness to continue to invest in protecting against this threat,” added Jackson. "We believe we are well positioned to continue our growth trajectory by expanding the markets we serve and offering high-quality innovative products as the economy continues to recover.”

Statements in this press release regarding our business that are not historical facts are "forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, such as "believe,” "expect,” "intend,” "positioned,” "assumptions” and similar terminology. These risks and uncertainties include factors such as:
the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related measures taken by governmental or regulatory authorities to combat the pandemic, including the impact of the pandemic and these measures on the economies and demand for our products in the states where we sell them, and on our customers, suppliers, labor force, business, operations and financial performance;
unpredictable weather and macroeconomic factors that may negatively impact the repair and remodel and new construction markets and the construction industry generally, especially in the state of Florida and the western United States, where the substantial portion of our sales are currently generated, and in the U.S. generally;
changes in raw material prices, especially for aluminum, glass and vinyl, including, price increases due to the implementation of tariffs and other trade-related restrictions;
our dependence on a limited number of suppliers for certain of our key materials;
our dependence on our impact-resistant product lines and contemporary indoor/outdoor window and door systems, and on consumer preferences for those types and styles of products;
the effects of increased expenses or unanticipated liabilities incurred as a result of, or due to activities related to, our acquisitions of NewSouth and Western Window Systems;
our level of indebtedness, which increased in connection with our acquisition of Western Window Systems, and increased further in connection with our acquisition of NewSouth;
increases in bad debt owed to us by our customers in the event of a downturn in the home repair and remodel or new home construction channels in our core markets and our inability to collect such debt;
the risks that the anticipated cost savings, synergies, revenue enhancement strategies and other benefits expected from our acquisitions of NewSouth and Western Window Systems may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected or that our actual integration costs may exceed our estimates;
increases in transportation costs, including increases in fuel prices;
our dependence on our limited number of geographically concentrated manufacturing facilities;
sales fluctuations to and changes in our relationships with key customers;
federal, state and local laws and regulations, including unfavorable changes in local building codes and environmental and energy code regulations;
risks associated with our information technology systems, including cybersecurity-related risks, such as unauthorized intrusions into our systems by "hackers” and theft of data and information from our systems, and the risks that our information technology systems do not function as intended or experience temporary or long-term failures to perform as intended;
product liability and warranty claims brought against us;
in addition to the acquisitions of NewSouth and Western Window Systems, our ability to successfully integrate businesses we may acquire in the future, or that any business we acquire may not perform as we expected at the time we acquired it; and
the other risks and uncertainties discussed under "Risk Factors” in Part II, Item 1A of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended July 4, 2020, and "Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019 and our other SEC filings.
Statements in this press release that are forward-looking statements include, without limitation, our expectations regarding: (1) demand for our products in future periods, as the economies in our markets continue to reopen, and thereafter; (2) our ability to capture sales and sales growth; (3) the amount of operating expense savings and other possible benefits arising from the closure of our Orlando, Florida manufacturing facility and the consolidation of its operations into our Venice and Tampa, Florida facilities, and the timing of those benefits; (4) our ability to lower labor and other costs and improve operating efficiencies; (5) the strength of our balance sheet, our liquidity, our capital allocation priorities, and ability to preserve cash and liquidity generally; (6) our net sales and EBITDA margins for the third quarter of 2020; (7) our growth trajectory and market expansion; and (8) our inability to forecast and provide guidance regarding our financial performance for the 2020 fiscal year. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this press release. Except as required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent events or circumstances from the date of this press release.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the financial schedules include financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We believe that presentation of non-GAAP measures such as adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA provides investors and analysts with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors and analysts to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance compared to past performance. We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a better baseline for assessing our future earnings potential. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release are provided to give investors access to types of measures that we use in analyzing our results.
Adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. Adjusted net income per share consists of GAAP net income per share adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. We believe these measures enable investors and analysts to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to past performance and provide a better baseline for assessing the Company's future earnings potential. However, these measures do not provide a complete picture of our operations.
Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income, adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and analysts about the Company's performance because they eliminate the effects of period-to-period changes in taxes, costs associated with capital investments and interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash the Company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes and thus does not reflect the actual funds generated from operations or available for capital investments.
Our calculations of adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to calculations performed by other companies and reported as similarly titled measures. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP measures. Schedules that reconcile adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income are included in the financial schedules accompanying this release.
Adjusted EBITDA as used in the calculation of the net debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio, consists of our adjusted EBITDA as described above, but for the trailing twelve-month period, adjusted pursuant to the covenants contained in the 2016 Credit Agreement due 2022.
