GAAP Loss Narrows to $0.05 per share; Non-GAAP Earnings Total $0.02 per share

SANTA CLARA, Calif., , Oct. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Nasdaq:AMCC) (“AppliedMicro”) today reported financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2017, ended September 30, 2016.

Q2 Fiscal 2017 Financial Information

  • Consolidated net revenue of $41.8 million, represented the seventh sequential quarter of revenue growth
  • GAAP net loss narrowed significantly to $4.6 million or $0.05 per share, as compared with a GAAP net loss of $10.5 million or $0.12 per share in the previous quarter
  • Non-GAAP net income improved to $2.1 million, or $0.02 per share, as compared with non-GAAP net loss of $2.5 million, or $0.03 per share in the previous quarter

Commenting on Applied Micro’s fiscal 2017 second quarter results, Dr. Paramesh Gopi, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In the second quarter of fiscal 2017 we achieved our seventh consecutive quarter of revenue growth. Our Connectivity business once again drove the improvement in top line results, and higher gross margins combined with greater operating efficiencies led to a return to profitability on a non-GAAP basis.”

"We continue to lead the optical market with our PAM4 single lambda 100/400G FinFET technology, which is now slated to become the industry standard for data center and enterprise connectivity. Additionally, we announced the deployment of our X-Gene products in industry-leading enterprise storage platforms, and successfully taped out X-Gene 3, our third generation server processor,” concluded Dr. Gopi.

AppliedMicro provides non-GAAP results as additional information relating to its financial condition and business trends. This information should be considered in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial tables section of this press release.
