PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 9, 2009-- Southwall Technologies Inc. (OTCBB:SWTX) announced third quarter 2009 revenue of $8.6 million, up 3% from second quarter 2009 revenues of $8.3 million and down 19% from third quarter 2008 revenues of $10.6 million.

The year over year decrease was primarily due to a decline in sales of automotive and window film products primarily driven by lower market demand caused by the global economic downturn.
 
Third quarter 2009 net income was $0.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in second quarter 2009, and $1.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share in third quarter 2008. Net income in the second quarter 2009 included $0.5 million of other income relating to the receipt of the final milestone payment under the Technology Transfer and Services agreement with Sunfilm.
 
Third quarter 2009 gross profit was $3.7 million, or 43% of net revenues, as compared to $3.7 million, or 44% of net revenues, in second quarter 2009 and $4.2 million, or 40% of net revenues, in third quarter 2008. The Company posted income from operations of $1.0 million in the third quarter 2009, as compared to $0.9 million in the second quarter 2009 and $1.4 million in the third quarter 2008.
 
In addition, the Company reached an amicable settlement with Pilkington Automotive GmbH on a patent allowed by the European Patent Office. The agreement consists of an up-front license payment with no future royalties or other licensing restrictions for Southwall or its customers.
 
“Despite the year over year sales decline, we are generating cash and continue to invest in longer term growth opportunities,” said Dennis Capovilla, Southwall’s President and CEO. “As the economy begins to stabilize, we see strong potential for growth across all markets relating to energy efficiency, and we remain focused on realizing longer term growth.”
