MoSys, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY), today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results
Total net revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $2.5 million, compared with $1.4 million for the previous quarter and $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2016. Product revenue for the third quarter was $2.2 million, compared with $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $1.2 million in the year-ago period. The sequential quarterly and annual increases in product revenue were primarily attributable to increased shipments of Bandwidth Engine 2 products.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2017 was 49 percent, compared with 47 percent for the second quarter of 2017 and 58 percent for the third quarter of 2016. Gross margin was higher in 2016 due to a higher proportion of royalty revenues to total revenues. The Company expects gross margin to improve further as a result of increased manufacturing efficiency and recent price adjustments.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2017 were $2.7 million, compared with $4.4 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2016. Third quarter total operating expenses decreased 38 percent sequentially and 49 percent compared with the year ago period. The Company expects operating expenses to continue to decrease due to the effects of continued restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $1.7 million, or ($0.22) per share, compared with a net loss of $4.0 million, or ($0.60) per share, for the previous quarter and a net loss of $4.7 million, or ($0.71) per share, for the third quarter of 2016. Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $1.5 million, or ($0.18) 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
“We have made significant progress over the past six months driving revenue growth while reducing costs, resulting in a sequential doubling of product revenue and a 38% reduction in operating expenses,” commented Len Perham, president and CEO of MoSys. “Our revenue growth in the third quarter was primarily driven by increased shipments to our largest Bandwidth Engine 2 customers. More specifically, the design wins with our lead security-appliance customer entered production in early 2017, and have been a significant driver of our increased revenue this past year. As part of our close collaboration with our lead customers, we have developed a solid backlog that extends out through 2018. Our design win platforms are highly differentiated and have long life cycles; therefore, we expect customer production shipments for current design wins to continue over the next five to seven years. The orders received to date and visibility provided by our lead customers validate the significance of our design wins and the value that our technology brings to our customers’ products. We believe that we have a high level of predictability for our continued revenue ramp for the fourth quarter of 2017, as well as for our base revenue run rates for 2018.”

Perham continued, “Earlier this year, we initiated several cost reduction initiatives, and have taken a number of significant actions to right-size the company and realign our organization. We reconfigured our engineering resources and reduced headcount to focus on supporting our Bandwidth Engine business, lowered outsourced manufacturing and design costs and recently relocated our headquarters. As a leaner organization, we’ve retained a critical core of applications, engineering and operations staff to efficiently and effectively maintain and expand our business. Also, we continue to pursue new design win opportunities to provide future revenue growth and augment our existing business. Based on current order backlog and customer forecasts, we expect increased revenue in the fourth quarter and anticipate revenue growth in excess of 60% in 2018. When combined with our lower operating expenses, we believe we are well positioned to achieve non-GAAP profitability in the first half of 2018 while meaningfully reducing our cash burn.”

Outlook for Fourth Quarter of 2017
For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company expects net revenues to be in the range of $3.3 million to $3.6 million, with non-GAAP operating expenses in the range of $2.2 million to $2.4 million.

Financial Results Conference Call
The Company will not be hosting a conference call or webcast in conjunction with today’s release of its third 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 November 13, 2017 that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
