MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Sigma Designs®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIGM), a leader in connected media platforms, today reported financial results and business highlights for its third fiscal quarter ended October 27, 2012.
Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $63.9 million, down $4.4 million, or 6%, from $68.3 million reported in the previous quarter and up $24.2 million, or 61%, from $39.7 million reported for the same period last year.
GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $39.5 million, or $1.18 per diluted share. This compares to GAAP net loss of $13.4 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the previous quarter and GAAP net loss of $121.6 million, or $3.78 per diluted share, in the same period last year.
Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $9.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net loss of $4.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the previous quarter and non-GAAP net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, during the same period one year ago. Non-GAAP adjustments for the third quarter consisted of $2.0 million in amortization expense for acquired intangibles related to acquisitions, $2.5 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, $1.1 million of inventory mark-up, $0.8 million in restructuring expense associated with our cost reduction program, $5.7 million settlement payment, $17.9 million reserve against our deferred income tax assets and $0.4 million in expenses associated with our acquisition of Trident's DTV business. The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP net income (loss) for all referenced periods is provided in a table immediately following the GAAP financial tables below.
"Sigma is strictly focused and committed to returning to profitability in Q1 and to that end we continue to drive our $45 million cost reduction plan to achieve this goal," said Thinh Tran, CEO of Sigma Designs. "Accordingly, the Company has taken and will continue to take the steps necessary to reach profitability in our first quarter of fiscal 2014 including the natural synergies we are pursuing in the merger of our media processor and DTV research and development expenses. We have executed the initial phase of our cost reduction and reorganization plan by reducing headcount by 44 employees in North America resulting in annual savings of $6.3 million. As we proceed with our strategy of combining our media processor development and support teams with the DTV team acquired from Trident, we have identified significant cost efficiencies to be achieved by converging on a single technology platform to serve both markets. As previously announced, additional operating expense reductions of $33.7 million will become effective at the beginning of fiscal 2014. This will be accompanied by product cost reductions totaling $5.0 million for fiscal 2014."
- We announced the launch of our SMP8680 series of media processors with integrated HPNA home connectivity for IPTV and hybrid Set-Top Boxes (STBs). These media processors also feature 3D video, integrated graphics processing, video scaling, DDR3 memory support, customizable UI and a power efficient CPU that can deliver Over-the-Top (OTT) content.
- We announced a collaboration with European market leader LEA® to provide the first-to-market over-the-top thin client set top box with HomePlug AV powerline connectivity, ensuring Plug and Play installation and unmatched data transfer quality. LEA's new NetPlayer HD® is powered by Sigma Designs' SMP8671 secure media processor and CG2210 chipset HomePlug® AV modem with ClearPath technology.
- We announced that Devolo®, the European leader in Powerline communication (PLC) solutions, has selected Sigma's CG2210 HomePlug AV® as the basis for their new Powerline 200 AV Diversity+ adaptor. The CG2210 chipset with ClearPath technology supports diversity technology by enabling the additional use of the protective ground wire, creating multiple transmission channels for improving overall throughput, higher robustness and better coverage.
- We announced that Comtrend's PG9141s Powerline Single Port Adapter, which is based on Sigma's HomePlug AV® chipset, has won the 2012 Communications Technologies Platinum Award in home networking announced at the 2012 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando.

Investors will have the opportunity to listen live to the conference call via the Internet through www.sigmadesigns.com/IR or www.earnings.com. Institutional investors can access the call via Thomson StreetEvents at www.streetevents.com. To listen to the live call, please go to the website at least 10 minutes early to register and download and install any necessary audio software. For those who cannot listen to the live broadcast, a replay will be available shortly after the call via the internet through www.sigmadesigns.com/IR or www.earnings.com. The audio replay will be available for one week after the call.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Sigma reports non-GAAP net income, which excludes amortization of acquired intangibles and developed technologies, stock-based compensation, the mark-up on purchased inventory sold during the period, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring charges, a settlement payment, write-down of acquisition-related goodwill and intangible assets, the reserve of deferred income tax assets and the gain upon acquisition of the DTV business that Sigma recognized in accordance with GAAP. Sigma believes that its non-GAAP net income provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. Sigma also believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information for investors to evaluate its operating results in the same manner as the research analysts that follow Sigma, all of whom present non-GAAP projections in their published reports. As such, the non-GAAP measures provided by Sigma facilitate a more direct comparison of its performance with the financial projections published by the analysts as well as its competitors, many of whom report financial results on a non-GAAP basis. The economic substance behind its decision to use such non-GAAP measures is that such measures approximate its controllable operating performance more closely than the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. For example, Sigma's management has no control over certain variables that have a major influence in the determination of stock-based compensation such as the volatility of its stock price and changing interest rates. Sigma believes that all of these excluded expenses do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of its continuing operations for the period in which they are incurred, even though some of these excluded items may be incurred and reflected in Sigma's GAAP financial results in the foreseeable future.
The material limitation associated with the use of the non-GAAP financial measures is that the non-GAAP measures do not reflect the full economic impact of Sigma's activities. Sigma's non-GAAP net income is not prepared in accordance with GAAP, is not an alternative to GAAP financial information, and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies. Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on non-GAAP information.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
