MoSys, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY), today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results
Total net revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $1.4 million, compared with $1.2 million for the previous quarter and $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2016. Product revenue for the second quarter was $1.1 million, compared with $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2017 and $1.3 million in the year-ago period.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2017 was 47 percent, compared with 50 percent for the first quarter of 2017 and 41 percent for the second quarter of 2016.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2017 were $4.4 million, compared with $4.8 million for the first quarter of 2017 and $6.5 million for the second quarter of 2016. GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $4.0 million, or ($0.60) per share, compared with a net loss of $4.4 million, or ($0.66) per share, for the previous quarter and a net loss of $6.0 million, or ($0.91) per share, for the second quarter of 2016. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $2.8 million, or ($0.42) per share, which excludes restructuring charges, intangible asset amortization and stock-based compensation expenses. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release. In February 2017, the Company effected a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its common stock. All share and per share amounts in this press release have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split for all current and prior periods.

Management Commentary
“Second quarter 2017 IC revenue reflected an increase in shipments of our IC products, and we have received order visibility for at least the next 12 months from our lead customers and expect a meaningful increase in revenue in the second half of the year,” commented Len Perham, MoSys’ president and CEO. “We continue to pursue new design-in opportunities for our products, and recorded an additional design win during the quarter for our Bandwidth Engine 3.”

“Also, during the quarter, we began to realize the benefits of our initial cost reduction initiatives, which we implemented early in the second quarter, resulting in non-GAAP operating expenses decreasing by 30% sequentially. We expect to implement additional cost reductions and further reduce operating expenses in the coming quarters. More recently, we successfully completed a financing that resulted in net proceeds of approximately $2.0 million, which will be used to support ongoing operations and improve our balance sheet, in combination with the reductions in costs and operating expenses.”

Financial Results Conference Call
The Company will not be hosting a conference call or webcast in conjunction with today’s release of its second quarter results.

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 non-cash goodwill impairment, restructuring, stock-based compensation and intangible asset amortization 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 17, 2017 that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
