RealD, a global licensor of 3D technologies, announced that its revenue for the third quarter of its fiscal year was $57.8m, an increase of 91% versus the same period a year ago, but down 11% from the previous quarter.

The company posted a net loss $16.6m during the quarter on a GAAP basis, compared to a GAAP net loss of $15.1m during the same period a year ago, and a GAAP net loss of $5.1m during the previous quarter.  However, the company said that on a non-GAAP basis, it achieved adjusted EBITDA of $16.9 million, an increase of 213% versus the same period a year ago, and up slightly from the adjusted EBITDA of $16.5m posted last quarter.

Along with the jump in revenue, RealD’s costs increased significantly during the quarter.  The company’s cost of revenue increased 63% to $51.6m, and its operating expenses more than doubled to $20.8m.

RealD continues to post impressive expansion numbers. During the quarter it deployed approximately 2,000 3D-enabled screens, bringing its total 3-D screen deployment to 11,300.  On a geographic basis, the company said it has deployed 6,900 domestic (United States and Canada) screens and 4,400 international screens. 

These updated screen deployment numbers represent an increase of 163% versus last year, and an increase of 22% versus the previous quarter.

Year to date, the company’s net revenue was $187.6 million, an increase of 99% versus the first nine months of the last fiscal year.   The company’s years to date operating expenses were $51.2m, an increase of 81% versus the first nine months of last year.

On a GAAP basis, RealD lost $16.8m during the first nine months of its fiscal year.  However the company said that on a non-GAAP basis (which excludes the impact of motion picture exhibitor option expense) it achieved net income of $17.3m, compared to a non-GAAP net loss $12.4m for the first nine months of its last fiscal year.  The company also said that its adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $44.4m, compared to $11.5m for the first nine months of last year.

RealD said it ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $35.5m.  During the quarter the company successfully completed a $200m secondary stock offering, but all proceeds went to company investors and insiders rather than the company itself.
