QuickLogic Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Results

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/15/17 -- QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), an innovator and developer of ultra-low power programmable sensor processing solutions, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 1, 2017.

Recent Accomplishments

"During the fourth quarter of 2016, we made significant progress on our strategic initiatives for our sensor processing solutions and launched our new ArcticPro™ eFGPA IP licensing," stated Brian Faith, QuickLogic's president and CEO. "Given this progress and the momentum we have already developed this year, I believe we are on track to realize our goal of greater than 50% year-over-year revenue growth in 2017."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Results
Total revenue was $2.9 million, increasing 5% compared to the third quarter of 2016, reflecting the continuing shipments of our display bridge solutions, and decreasing 19% compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, reflecting the expected decrease of mature and connectivity product revenue. New product revenue was $1.6 million, up 19% compared to the third quarter of 2016 and down 23% compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. Mature product revenue was $1.3 million, decreasing 8% compared to the third quarter of 2016 and 13% compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. New product revenue accounted for 54% of the total revenue, compared to 48% in the third quarter of 2016 and 57% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Gross margins were 32.3%, compared to 31.7% in the third quarter of 2016 and 35.3% in the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily due to product mix. Operating expenses decreased to $4.7 million, compared to $5.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $6.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The reduction reflects cost savings from strategic realignment efforts. Net loss was $3.9 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to $4.6 million, or $0.07 per share, in the third quarter of 2016 and $4.8 million, or $0.09 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net loss was $3.7 million, compared to $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. (See below for an explanation of non-GAAP financial measures).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
QuickLogic reports financial information in accordance with GAAP, but believes that non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in evaluating its operating results and comparing its performance to comparable companies. Accordingly, the Company excludes charges related to stock-based compensation, restructuring, the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets and the tax effect on other comprehensive income in calculating non-GAAP (i) income (loss) from operations, (ii) net income (loss), (iii) net income (loss) per share, and (iv) gross margin percentage. The Company provides this non-GAAP information to enable investors to evaluate its operating results in a manner similar to how the Company analyzes its operating results and to provide consistency and comparability with similar companies in the Company's industry.

Management uses the non-GAAP measures, which exclude gains, losses and other charges that are considered by management to be outside of the Company's core operating results, internally to evaluate its operating performance against results in prior periods and its operating plans and forecasts. In addition, the non-GAAP measures are used to plan for the Company's future periods, and serve as a basis for the allocation of the Company's resources, management of operations and the measurement of profit-dependent cash and equity compensation paid to employees and executive officers.

Investors should note, however, that the non-GAAP financial measures used by QuickLogic may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies. QuickLogic does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures alone or as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures is included in the financial statements portion of this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures with their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding our future business expectations, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors including: delays in the market acceptance of the Company's new products; the ability to convert design opportunities into customer revenue; our ability to replace revenue from end-of-life products; the level and timing of customer design activity; the market acceptance of our customers' products; the risk that new orders may not result in future revenue; our ability to introduce and produce new products based on advanced wafer technology on a timely basis; our ability to adequately market the low power, competitive pricing and short time-to-market of our new products; intense competition, including the introduction of new products by competitors; our ability to hire and retain qualified personnel; changes in product demand or supply; capacity constraints; and general economic conditions. These and other potential factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from the results predicted are described in more detail in the Company's public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including the risks discussed in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in the Company's prior press releases, which are available on the Company's Investor Relations website at http://ir.quicklogic.com/ and on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
