SemiLEDs Corporation (NASDAQ: LEDS), "SemiLEDs" or the "Company," a developer and manufacturer of LED chips and LED components, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, ended November 30, 2020.

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $719 thousand, compared to $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. GAAP net loss attributable to SemiLEDs stockholders for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $697 thousand, compared to a loss of $62 thousand in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, or a net loss of $0.17 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.02 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was negative 3%, compared with gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 of 8%. Operating margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was negative 135%, compared with negative 28% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents was $2.7 million at November 30, 2020, compared to $2.8 million at the end of fiscal 2020.

We are unable to forecast revenue for the second quarter ending February 28, 2021 at this time given the uncertain impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and the Company.

The Chinese New Year (CNY) of 2021 will begin on February 11, 2021. Our office and factory in Chunan will be closed from February 6, 2021 until February 21, 2021 and will resume operations on Monday, February 22, 2021.
