    Research In Motion Reports First Quarter Results

    Advertisement



    WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 28, 2007) - Research In Motion Limited (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM), a world leader in the mobile communications market, today reported first quarter results for the three months ended June 2, 2007 (all figures in U.S. dollars and U.S. GAAP).

    Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 was $1.082 billion, up 16.3% from $930.4 million in the previous quarter and up 76.5% from $613.1 million in the same quarter of last year. The revenue breakdown for the quarter was approximately 76% for devices, 16% for service, 5% for software and 3% for other revenue. During the quarter, RIM shipped approximately 2.4 million devices.

    The total number of BlackBerry subscriber accounts in the quarter increased by approximately 1.2 million to over 9 million total subscriber accounts.

    "We are starting fiscal 2008 with strong operating performance, including record revenue, earnings and subscriber results," said Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO at RIM. "After completing our first billion dollar quarter, we are now preparing to ship the 20 millionth BlackBerry handset this summer. This growth is a testament to our strong portfolio of products and services and our successful channel expansion. We look forward to the remainder of the year in which we anticipate continued growth within both North American and international markets."

    GAAP net income for the quarter was $223.2 million, or $1.17 per share diluted, as compared with net income of $187.4 million, or $0.98 per share diluted, in the prior quarter. Adjusted net income excluding stock option expense of $5.3 million was $228.5 million, or $1.20 per share diluted. The adjusted net income and earnings per share do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. These adjusted measures should be considered in the context of RIM's GAAP results. This is the last quarter that RIM will be reporting net income and earnings per share adjusted for stock option expense.

    Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 ending September 1, 2007 is expected to be in the range of $1.3-$1.365 billion. Subscriber account additions in the second quarter are expected to be in the range of 1.325-1.375 million. GAAP earnings per share for the second quarter are expected to be in the range of $1.37-$1.49 diluted or 45-49 cents per share diluted on a post-split basis, factoring the effective 3-for-1 stock split announced separately today.

    The total of cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments was $1.56 billion as at June 2, 2007, compared to $1.41 billion at the end of the previous quarter, an increase of $150 million over the prior quarter.
