MoSys, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Second Quarter Overview

  • Increased production shipments of Bandwidth Engine® ICs across customer base;
  • Secured multiple new design wins for Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed™ products;
  • Recorded first Programmable Search Engine (PSE) design wins and shipped prototyping quantities to lead customer; and
  • Ended the quarter with total cash and investments of $16.5 million.

“During the quarter, we continued to see our early Bandwidth Engine 2 design wins ramp toward volume production, while design win activity increased, and, we closed wins with multiple new customers,” commented Len Perham, president and CEO of MoSys. “We also made considerable progress with new products, delivering first prototype units of the new Programmable Search Engine to a lead data-center networking customer, as well as completing sample delivery and achieving interoperability with multiple customers and partners for our expanding LineSpeed Flex family.

“As we make progress over the coming quarters, we expect to see design wins continue ramping into production at an increasing rate. In addition to our solid traction on Bandwidth Engine 2, we expect to see a growing number of wins for our Bandwidth Engine 3, Programmable Search Engine, and LineSpeed Flex product families. Based on the progress we have made to-date, I believe we are well positioned for continued revenue growth this year and into 2017.”

Total net revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $1.6 million, compared with $1.5 million in the previous quarter and $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2015. Product revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.1 million in the previous quarter and $0.5 million in the year ago period. Royalty and other revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $0.3 million, consistent with the previous quarter and compared with $0.5 million in the year ago period.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2016 was 41 percent, consistent with the previous quarter, and compared with 43 percent for the second quarter of 2015.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2016 were $6.5 million, compared with $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2016, and $7.3 million in the year-ago period. Second quarter 2016 operating expenses included stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible asset expenses of $0.6 million.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $6.0 million, or ($0.09) per share, including stock-based compensation and amortization expenses. This compares with a net loss of $6.9 million, or ($0.10) per share, in the previous quarter and a net loss of $6.9 million, or ($0.11) per share, for the second quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $5.4 million, or ($0.08) per share, which excludes amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2016 was computed using approximately 66.0 million weighted shares on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement MoSys’ consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, MoSys uses non-GAAP financial measures that exclude from the statement of operations the effects of stock-based compensation, amortization of recorded intangible assets and restructuring charges. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors and other interested persons because they are one of the primary indicators that MoSys’ management uses for planning and forecasting future performance. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because management does not consider these charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company that are within the control of management or that would be used to evaluate management’s operating performance.

Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is provided in a table below the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. For additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, and management’s explanation of why it considers such measures to be useful, refer to the Form 8-K dated July 29, 2016, that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
