Entropic reported second quarter net revenues of $70.6 million. This compares to net revenues of $74.5 million in the first quarter of 2013, and $83.1 million in the second quarter of 2012.

In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's second quarter net loss was $39.9 million, or $(0.44) per share (basic and diluted).

Included in the GAAP operating results for the second quarter of 2013 is a charge of $26.7 million, or $0.30 per share (diluted), associated with the establishment of a valuation allowance related to federal deferred tax assets.

Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter was $0.6 million, or $0.01 per share (diluted), compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.00 per share (diluted) in the first quarter of 2013, and $7.8 million, or $0.09 per share (diluted), in the second quarter of 2012.

"Despite some near term challenges in our business, we continue to build a healthy pipeline of design-wins for our set-top box system-on-a-chip and connectivity products," said Patrick Henry, president and CEO, Entropic. "We continue to focus on getting these new designs ramping into production, and believe the strategic investments and decisions made in Q2, from our asset acquisition, company realignment, reductions in operating expenses, and focus on new product development, put us in a stronger position for long-term revenue growth and enhanced operating leverage."

(1) The Company's non-GAAP net income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of 29%, 12%, and 22% for the three month periods ended June 30, 2013, March 31, 2013, and June 30, 2012, respectively. The Company's non-GAAP net income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of 24% and 18% for the six month periods ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated tax payable on the Company's projected tax returns as a percentage of estimated annual non-GAAP pre-tax net income (loss). The Company uses an estimated cash tax rate to adjust for the historical variation in the effective book tax rate associated with the valuation allowance adjustments, the utilization of research and development tax credits, and the utilization of loss carryforwards which currently have an overall effect of reducing taxes payable. The Company believes that the cash tax rate provides a more transparent view of its operating results. The Company's effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net (loss) income for the three month periods ended June 30, 2013, March 31, 2013, and June 30, 2012 was approximately (215)%, 66% and 31%, respectively. The Company's effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net (loss) income for the six month periods ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was approximately (115)% and 43%, respectively.
(2) In June, 2013, we incurred a restructuring charge of $1.8 million pursuant to a plan to rebalance our operations in an attempt to leverage synergies from our acquisitions and refine our business operations. This plan resulted in a reduction of our personnel by 66 employees, or approximately 10% of our workforce.
