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.

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.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
