Boston, MA, Color Kinetics Incorporated (NASDAQ: CLRK), a leading innovator of LED lighting systems and technologies, today announced its results of operations for the third quarter of 2006. Revenues were $17.1 million, an increase of 21% from the $14.1 million reported in the third quarter of 2005.

GAAP net income was $1.1 million or $0.05 per fully diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter was $1.7 million or $0.08 per fully diluted share prior to non-cash charges of $607,000 associated with the FAS 123R accounting standard.
"We're very pleased to report another quarter of record financial performance, driven by strong Lighting Systems sales both domestically and overseas," said Bill Sims, President and CEO, Color Kinetics. "We continue to achieve top line success and drive bottom line results while investing in the company's long-term growth plans."

"Our growing number of landmark installations, such as the newly unveiled LAX Gateway, point to the return on investment that customers can realize with LED systems. In addition, our latest OEM and licensing agreements indicate the accelerating momentum of our programs across a number of markets," said Sims.

Third quarter highlights include:

  • 37% growth in Lighting Systems revenues year over year, driven by record North American and International sales
  • Consistently strong overall gross margins at 56%
  • New OEM agreements signed with Advanced Lighting, ERGO Research, and Sky-Skan
  • New licensing agreements signed with Robe Show Lighting and Spin Master, and the launch of SC Johnson's Color Kinetics-licensed product

For the fourth quarter of 2006, the company currently targets revenues within the range of $17.4 million to $18.4 million, with non-GAAP net income of $0.08 to $0.10 per fully diluted share prior to stock-based compensation expense.
