WARREN, N.J., May 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (the "Company"), a world leader in radio frequency solutions, reported first quarter 2015 net sales of $18.4 million, a sequential decrease of 11.7% and in line with prior guidance.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $5.0 million, or ($0.06) per diluted share, a sequential improvement of 7.6%. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $3.8 million, or ($0.04) per share, representing a sequential improvement of 18.6%.

As of April 4, 2015, cash and cash equivalents totaled $17.0 million, or net cash of $13.0 million, after excluding $4.0 million drawn under the Company's credit facility.

"We are very pleased with the 23.3% sequential increase in Infrastructure revenues in the first quarter. The resulting financial performance was enabled by our ongoing strategic shift to an Infrastructure business model," said Ron Michels, chairman & CEO. "While we anticipate some near-term market headwinds in Infrastructure, we believe this will be temporary, and our current outlook for long-term growth remains positive."

"In line with our continued migration to a leaner Infrastructure business model, we are implementing the next phase of cost improvement measures designed to match our supply capability with demand," said Terry Gallagher, executive vice president and CFO. "These actions are expected to enable a more streamlined operating structure that lays the foundation for ANADIGICS' long-term improvement."

ANADIGICS' financial outlook for Q2:

  • We anticipate a sequential revenue decline of 10-15% driven principally by a decline in Mobile of approximately 20-25% in accordance with our shift to Infrastructure. Infrastructure revenues are expected to decline sequentially by 7-9% following higher-than-expected growth in Q1 2015.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to decline sequentially by 100-300 basis points on the lower expected revenue.
  • Operating expenses are expected to be 5-7% lower, sequentially.

The statements regarding the Company's anticipated future performance are forward-looking in nature and actual results may differ materially. All forward-looking statements are made expressly subject to the Safe Harbor Statement set forth 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.
