QuickLogic Announces Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 -- QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low-power Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), today announced the financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $3.0 million, down 2% from the fourth quarter of 2012 and down 27% from the first quarter of 2012. During the first quarter, new product revenue decreased 6% to $941,000 from $1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. New product revenue accounted for 31% of the total revenue in the first quarter. During the first quarter, mature product revenue remained flat at $2.1 million sequentially. Mature product revenue accounted for 69% of the total revenue in the first quarter.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $3.6 million, or $0.08 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.06 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012 and a net loss of $3.7 million, or $0.10 per share, in the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $3.1 million, or $0.07 per share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.04 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012 and a non-GAAP net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.09 per share, in the first quarter of 2012.

"New product revenue in the first quarter was lower than expected due to a delay in the receipt of an expected large order from a tier one consumer electronics company. This order has since been received and we are on track to meet our forecast for the first half of the year," stated Andy Pease, QuickLogic's President and CEO.

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 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.
