For the nine months to September 30, 2010, LSGC has recorded a net loss of $154.33 million versus total revenue of $30.33 million.

Nexxus reports financial results

Nexxus Lighting, an LED lighting maker based in Charlotte, NC, has reported revenue of $1.2 million for the quarter ending September 30, 2010, approximately $30,000 below comparable third-quarter 2009 revenue. The loss from continuing operations was $1.37 million. The company sold its legacy Commercial and Pool Lighting businesses on October 28, enhancing focus on the expanding Array LED replacement lamp and Lumificient LED signage businesses.

Lumificient sales grew 8% to $923,000, compared to the third quarter of 2009, while Array sales fell to $326,000, compared to $423,000 in the same quarter last year. The lull in commercial orders was attributed to anticipation of 2011 Energy-Star-qualified product-incentive programs in the US and much softer European sales in the quarter compared to 2009. Year-to-date Array sales are up 76% compared to the first nine months of 2009.

Nexxus recently received Energy Star certification for its R30, MR16 and GU10 lamps, positioning the company and its customers for participation in utility incentive programs that are now being prepared for 2011.

LED market

Our sister publication ElectroIQ has conducted an interview with market research company Gartner. According to research VP Dean Freeman, the LED market is now being driven mainly by LED-backlit LCD TVs, but an inflection point in around 2015 will see very rapid adoption of LED lighting. Around the 2014-2016 timeframe, the price of a 60W-equivalent LED lamp should drop down to the $12-$15 range, says the article.

By the end of this decade, annual production of LEDs will be around 800 billion units, an order of magnitude higher than at present. Meanwhile, the recent acceleration in demand for MOCVD machines is likely to level off somewhat in the next few years.
