Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $9.6 million, or ($0.11) per share compared to $14.9 million, or ($0.20) in the first quarter of 2013.

"I am encouraged by the progress we are making this year with strong design-win activity across a broader customer base," said Ron Michels, chairman & CEO of ANADIGICS. "Our improved manufacturing efficiency, substantial operating leverage and shift to a higher-margin product mix provides ANADIGICS with a foundation for profitable growth."

"ANADIGICS' non-GAAP gross margin increased by 1,020 basis points year over year in the first quarter of 2014," said Terry Gallagher, vice president and CFO. "We delivered overall cost reduction progress ahead of our plan and are well positioned for continued improvement. For the second quarter, we expect revenues to rise by 8-12% and gross margin to expand by 250 to 550 basis points, sequentially. Concurrent with this revenue and gross margin expansion, we expect a sequential reduction in operating expenses of greater than five percent."

The statements regarding the Company's anticipated future performance are forward looking and actual results may differ materially. Please see safe harbor statement at the end of this press release.

This press release includes financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP, consisting of non-GAAP net income and loss per share. Management uses these measures to evaluate the Company's operating and financial performance in light of business objectives, for planning purposes, when publicly providing our business outlook and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. ANADIGICS believes that these measures are useful to investors because they enhance investors' ability to review the Company's business from the same perspective as the Company's management and facilitate comparisons of this period's results with prior periods. These non-GAAP measures exclude amounts related to stock-based compensation, marketable securities' adjustments, certain non-recurring charges to cost of goods and restructuring charges. Non-GAAP measures are used by some investors when assessing the ongoing operating and financial performance of our Company. These financial measures are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. Management acknowledges that stock-based compensation is a recurring cost and is an important part of our employee's compensation and impacts their performance. However, the expense is non-cash in nature and there are various valuation methodologies and assumptions used in determining stock-based compensation that may be unrelated to operations, such as volatility and current interest rates. The presentation of the additional information should not be considered a substitute for net income or loss or income or loss per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Limitations of non-GAAP financial measures. The primary material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP measures as compared to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are (i) they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in ANADIGICS industry, and (ii) they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. We compensate for these limitations by providing reconciliations of reported net income or loss and income or loss per share to non-GAAP net income or net loss and non-GAAP income or loss per share, respectively, within this press release.
