MoSys, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Secured multiple new design wins for Bandwidth Engine® ICs;
  • Increased production shipments of Bandwidth Engine ICs quarter-over-quarter;
  • Achieved carrier-grade qualification of Bandwidth Engine 2 product family;
  • Announced production availability of all three Bandwidth Engine 2 products;
  • Introduced third generation Bandwidth Engine architecture; and
  • Ended the quarter with total cash and investments of $45.7 million.

Management Commentary

“We are pleased to begin 2014 with increasing revenue generated from IC product sales and multiple new design wins for our Bandwidth Engine family of advanced networking memories,” commented Len Perham, MoSys’ president and chief executive officer. “Customer interest and sales activity continues to be strong for our Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed™ families as we announced new products and successfully demonstrated our technology leadership at several industry shows this quarter.

“We have achieved carrier-grade qualification and announced the production release of all three Bandwidth Engine 2 products. These accomplishments provide additional validation of our technology and further support for our expanding sales efforts with customers. They position us to begin production shipments in the second half of this year.

“In addition, we continued to make progress with the development of our third generation Bandwidth Engine product family and have early engagements with processor partners and prospective Tier 1 networking and communications customers. We are well positioned to greatly increase our total design wins compared with 2013 and further expand the breadth of our product offerings to meet the performance challenges faced by customers in their next-generation networking systems,” concluded Mr. Perham.

First Quarter Results

Total net revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2013.

First quarter 2014 total revenue included product revenue of $0.6 million. Royalty and other revenue for the first quarter of 2014, which includes licensing revenue, was $0.8 million, consistent with the previous quarter, compared with $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2013.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2014 was 57%, compared with 78% in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 99% for the first quarter of 2013. The decrease in gross margin was due to the increased sales of IC products, which carry a lower gross margin than the Company’s licensing and royalty revenue.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2014 were $8.9 million, which compared with $7.3 million in the previous quarter and $6.3 million for the first quarter of 2013. The sequential increase in first quarter 2014 operating expenses reflected increased personnel-related and CAD software expenses related to the development of the Company’s Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed products. First quarter operating expenses also included $0.3 million of amortization of intangible assets and $1.5 million of stock-based compensation expense.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $8.1 million, or ($0.16) per share, which compared with a loss of $6.5 million, or ($0.13) per share in the previous quarter and a loss of $5.0 million, or ($0.12) per share, for the first quarter of 2013. The non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $6.3 million, or ($0.13) per share, which excluded amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. Earnings per share for the first quarter of 2014 were computed using approximately 49.2 million weighted shares on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

Financial Results Webcast / Conference Call

MoSys will host a conference call and webcast with investors today at 5:30a.m. Pacific Time (8:30a.m.Eastern Time) to discuss the first quarter 2014 financial results. Investors and other interested parties may access the call by dialing 1-877-280-4959 in the U.S. (1-857-244-7316 outside of the U.S.), and entering the pass code 12601161 at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the call. In addition, an audio webcast will be available through the MoSys Web site at http://www.mosys.com. A telephone replay will be available for two business days following the call at 1-888-286-8010 in the U.S. (1-617-801-6888 outside of the U.S.), pass code of 81357435.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement MoSys’ consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, MoSys uses non-GAAP financial measures that exclude from the statement of operations the effects of stock-based compensation and amortization of recorded intangible assets. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors and other interested persons because they are one of the primary indicators that MoSys’ management uses for planning and forecasting future performance. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because MoSys’ management does not consider these charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company that are within the control of management or that would be used to evaluate management’s operating performance.

Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is provided in a table below the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. For additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, and management’s explanation of why it considers such measures to be useful, refer to the Form 8-K dated May 2, 2014, which the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
