QuickLogic Announces Fiscal 2010 Second Quarter Results -- Total Revenue More Than Doubled Year Over Year

SUNNYVALE, CA, Aug 03, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the lowest power Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs) leader, today announced the financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended July 4, 2010.

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2010 was $6.5 million, up 19% sequentially and 123% compared to the second quarter of 2009. During the second quarter, new product revenue increased 11% sequentially to $2.3 million, accounting for 35% of total revenue. During the second quarter, legacy product revenue increased 25% sequentially to $4.2 million, accounting for 65% of total revenue in the second quarter.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the net loss for the second quarter of 2010 was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2010 and a net loss of $3.2 million, or $0.11 per share, in the second quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2010 was $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per share, in the first quarter of 2010 and a non-GAAP net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.09 per share, in the second quarter of 2009.

"The gains we continued to make during the quarter in the 3G USB modem market, including shipping CSSPs to new Tier 1 OEMs, contributed to the doubling of our year-over-year revenue growth," said Tom Hart, QuickLogic's Chairman of the Board and CEO. "We are excited to see the continued acceptance of CSSPs in the mobile consumer market, as well as the sustained demand for our legacy products."

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 write-down of the Company's investment in TowerJazz Semiconductor Ltd. and the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets 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 Company 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.

This press release contains forward-looking statements made by our CEO relating to the revenue generating potential of new products, which is dependent on the market acceptance of our products and the level of customer orders. Actual results could differ materially from the results described in these forward-looking statements.
