MoSys, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results

MoSys, Inc., (NASDAQ:MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

2012 and Recent Highlights

  • Secured initial OEM design wins for the Bandwidth Engine® IC product family at multiple customers;
  • Passed 3000 hours of high temperature operating life (HTOL) testing of the Bandwidth Engine IC with no failures; thus, exceeding carrier-grade QA&R requirements;
  • Made significant progress toward new design wins with prospective customers in Japan, China and the U.S.;
  • Established worldwide sales representation and distribution channels;
  • Taped out second generation Bandwidth Engine IC;
  • Announced support of GigaChip™ Interface by Renesas Electronics Corporation; and
  • Ended the year with total cash and investments of approximately $41 million.

Management Commentary

“In 2012, MoSys made continued progress toward becoming a fabless semiconductor company. Specifically, we advanced the development of our Bandwidth Engine IC family, including passing 3000 hours of HTOL testing with no failures, securing multiple design wins and taping out our second generation device family,” commented Len Perham, MoSys’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our second generation Bandwidth Engine family will embody substantial performance improvements, a significantly expanded feature set and much faster I/O speeds, resulting in an expanded range of applications that can be served when compared with our first generation family. We are excited to have this new IC family in wafer fabrication and look forward to receiving first silicon for testing and characterization.”

Mr. Perham continued, “Activity in our sales funnel increased substantially during the year, and we have made significant progress towards declaring our first tier one design win. This brisk pace of sales activity for new design wins across all geographic regions has created a solid foundation of customer and partnership interest in Bandwidth Engine. Furthermore, our close collaboration with our initial design win partners has assisted these lead OEMs to advance toward achieving full system qualification and initial production releases, which we believe are scheduled for completion in the second half of 2013.

“During 2012, we also continued to reconfigure our resources and operations to align with our focus on IC sales. We believe these actions, along with our numerous operational accomplishments and increased design win activity, have set the stage for further product expansion and customer traction in 2013 and beyond.”

Total net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.6 million, compared with $1.3 million reported in the third quarter of 2012 and $5.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fourth quarter 2012 total revenue included licensing and other revenue of $0.2 million, consistent with the previous quarter and compared with $2.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 royalty revenue was $1.4 million compared with $1.1 million in the previous quarter and $2.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 97% compared with 96% in the third quarter of 2012 and 66% for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $9.4 million compared with $7.3 million in the previous quarter and a net gain of $26.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 operating expenses included $0.3 million of amortization of intangible assets and $0.8 million of stock-based compensation expense.

GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.8 million, or ($0.19) per share, compared with a net loss of $6.1 million, or ($0.15) per share, in the previous quarter and net income of $29.8 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. The non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $6.7 million, or ($0.17) per share, which excluded amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. Earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 were computed using approximately 40.0 million 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.

As of December 31, 2012, cash and investments totaled $40.7 million.

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 February 1, 2013, that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
