WARREN, N.J., Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, reported third quarter 2014 net sales of $18.9 million, in line with guidance. While revenue was down 18.9%, sequentially, non-GAAP gross margin expanded 321 basis points to 16.0%, exceeding guidance.

As of September 27, 2014, cash and cash equivalents totaled $13.5 million, or net cash of $9.5 million, after excluding $4.0 million drawn under the Company's credit facility.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2014 was $6.7 million, or ($0.08) per diluted share compared to $11.2 million, or ($0.13) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2014 was $5.7 million, or ($0.07) per share compared to $9.5 million, or ($0.11) in the third quarter of 2013.

"ANADIGICS has made tremendous progress during the last three months towards realizing both our financial and market goals," said Ron Michels, chairman & CEO of ANADIGICS. "Our new product launches have been very well received in their targeted markets, and have led us to enjoy a significant increase in customer engagements and strategic design win activity. Due to these improvements, we believe we are on target to realize the strategic goals I outlined last June."

"I am pleased with our improving financial performance driven by a 321 basis-point increase in non-GAAP gross margin and a greater-than 18% reduction in non-GAAP operating expenses. These operational improvements helped enable net cash of $9.5 million at quarter end, and looking ahead, we expect only a modest further reduction in net cash by year end," said Terry Gallagher, vice president and CFO. "Lastly, we recently closed with Silicon Valley Bank on a new, more flexible $10 million credit facility that, if needed, provides additional capital to fund growth."

ANADIGICS' financial outlook for Q4:

  • Revenue is expected to increase sequentially by 8 – 12%
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to improve sequentially by approximately 200 basis points
  • Operating expenses are expected to be approximately flat sequentially

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.
