ANADIGICS Announces Second Quarter Results

Quarterly Net Sales of $15.8 Million
Non-GAAP Gross Margin of 20.5%
Quarterly GAAP EPS ($0.07); Non-GAAP EPS ($0.05)

WARREN, N.J., Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) ("ANADIGICS" or the "Company"), a world leader in radio frequency solutions, reported second quarter 2015 net sales of $15.8 million, a sequential decrease of 14.4%, driven principally by the decline in non-strategic cellular mobile business.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $6.2 million, or ($0.07) per diluted share. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $4.5 million, or ($0.05) per share.

As of July 4, 2015, cash and cash equivalents totaled $15.2 million, or net cash of $11.2 million, after excluding $4.0 million drawn under the Company's credit facility.

"Despite market softness in small cell and some temporary excess customer inventory to work through in WiFi, we experienced only a modest sequential decline in total infrastructure revenue in Q2," said Ron Michels, chairman & CEO. "While we continue to make progress in our core infrastructure businesses by launching new products, earning new design sockets, and gaining new customers, we expect the widely reported market softness in CATV and small cell to persist through the end of 2015. We believe the softness in both markets will subside in 2016 as deployments pick up steam. Most importantly, we are prepared with broad design-win penetration to meet the demand when strong market growth does, in fact, return."

"To address the impact any core market softness may have on the Company's financials, we are exploring capitalization options that may provide adequate cash infusion over the next twelve months," said Terry Gallagher, executive vice president and CFO. "We further believe that if such a cash infusion is secured, the Company financials will be adequately strengthened to a level that mitigates any going concern risks that may arise as a result of continued infrastructure market softness. With a sound long-term growth plan and solid company execution, we expect any new capital infusion should contribute to the long-term value creation for our shareholders. While we are optimistic, we cannot guarantee at this time that we will be able to secure additional financing on satisfactory terms or at all."

ANADIGICS' financial outlook for Q3:

  • We anticipate total revenue in the range of $12.0 million to $12.6 million, representing a sequential revenue decline of 20-24% and reflecting a continued decline in non-strategic legacy mobile, the impact of a broader slowdown in CATV spending, a reduction in legacy WiMAX and IoT businesses, and a slow return to Small Cell revenue growth due to continued delays at major carriers in Asia.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to decline sequentially by 500-800 basis points on the lower expected revenue.
  • Operating expenses are expected to be marginally 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.
