    • UniPixel (NASDAQ:UNXL): "While we are in the early stages of integration of the [Atmel] XSense operations, at this point we anticipate XSense revenues of at least $10 million for the year. We expect operating expenses to total less than $4 million per quarter by the fourth quarter and to exit the year with gross margins greater than 20%. We anticipate further gross margin improvements in the first half of 2016, leading to profitability for the full year."
    • The company also states in its Q1 report it's currently shipping a finished XSense touch sensor product to an unnamed U.S. tier 1 PC OEM (presumably HP or Dell) for 3 devices ranging in size from 8" to 11.6." Five designs are said to be "through initial qualification stage" with the existing customer and other tier 1 PC OEMs based in the U.S. and Asia. One design with a U.S. PC OEM is said to be in the "final qualification stage."
    • To cut XSense production costs, UniPixel is bringing catalytic coated film production for the touch sensors in-house. It expects to be finished within 6 months.
    • GAAP operating expenses fell 8% Y/Y in Q1 to $5.7M - SG&A spend totaled $3M, and R&D $2.7M. Ahead of the XSense deal, UniPixel ended Q1 with $20.7M in cash, down $3M Q/Q.
    • Shares are unchanged AH for now.
