MoSys, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results


SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 28, 2009-- MoSys, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leading provider of differentiated, high-density memory and high-speed interface (I/O) intellectual property (IP) for the consumer, communications, networking, storage and high-performance computing markets, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009. Second quarter results include financials from Prism Circuits, Inc. following the closing of the acquisition on June 5, 2009.

Second Quarter Key Points

  • Reported second quarter total revenue of $2.0 million
  • Ended quarter with total cash and investments of $45.4 million
  • Completed acquisition of Prism Circuits and expanded product portfolio with the addition of silicon-proven, differentiated, high speed interface IP
  • Expanded growth opportunity in the networking and communications markets

Management Commentary

Commenting on the Company€™s second quarter, Len Perham, MoSys€™ President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, €œWhile the second quarter was challenging due to continued instability in the macroeconomic environment, we achieved major progress towards positioning MoSys for future growth through our acquisition of Prism Circuits, a leader in high-speed parallel and serial interface IP. The acquisition significantly expands our total addressable market, accelerates our growth opportunities in networking and communications applications and brings us a world class team of experts in high speed SerDes and DDR interface technology. We€™ve already made great progress integrating the teams and we recorded our first interface IP revenue during the second quarter and expect this new revenue stream to contribute significantly in the second half of 2009 and beyond. The combination of our proven 1T-SRAM memory with high speed serial I/O IP will enable us to provide a more compelling and comprehensive solution for next generation SoCs and ASICs targeted for the networking and communications markets. We are confident in our forward direction and believe this acquisition will be a catalyst to drive the company towards growth and profitability.€

Second Quarter Results

Total net revenue for the second quarter of 2009 was $2.0 million, compared with $2.6 million for the first quarter of 2009 and $3.2 million for the second quarter of 2008.

Second quarter total revenue included licensing revenue of $306,000, compared with $524,000 for the first quarter of 2009 and $667,000 for the second quarter of 2008. Royalty revenue for the second quarter was $1.7 million, which includes royalties associated with the Nintendo Wii game console. Royalty revenue decreased from the previous quarter primarily due to lower shipment volumes as inventory levels were reduced. Additionally, most production by one of our major licensees is now subject to a license agreement that provides for royalties to be reported and recognized in the quarter subsequent to shipment of the licensee€™s products, instead of the shipment quarter, as was the case under the previous agreement. This has reduced the comparability of our current royalty revenue to the previous quarter€™s royalty revenue of $2.0 million and the royalty revenue of $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2008.

Gross margin as determined in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) was 86 percent, compared with 88 percent for the first quarter of 2009 and 74 percent for the second quarter of 2008.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the second quarter were $7.0 million, compared with $6.5 million for the previous quarter and $7.5 million for the second quarter of 2008. Second quarter operating expenses included acquisition-related costs, including legal and accounting transaction fees, amortization of intangible assets and contingent compensation expense, which totaled $611,000, a restructuring charge of $431,000 and stock-based compensation expense of $788,000.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2009 was $5.1 million, or ($0.16) per share, compared with a net loss of $4.1 million, or ($0.13) per share, for the first quarter of 2009 and a net loss of $4.6 million, or ($0.14) per share, for the second quarter of 2008.

The non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $3.3 million, or ($0.11) per share, excluding charges related to the acquisition, restructuring and stock-based compensation. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

Earnings per share for the quarter on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis were computed using 31,198,000 shares.

Cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled approximately $45.4 million as of June 30, 2009, compared with approximately $67.5 million as of December 31, 2008. The year to date decrease in cash and investments included a $13.6 million cash payment related to the acquisition of Prism Circuits in the second quarter, as well as first quarter expenditures of approximately $1.0 million related to the exit of the analog/mixed-signal product lines and approximately $0.9 million of stock repurchases.

Second Quarter Financial Results Webcast / Conference Call

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 income statement the effects of restructuring and asset impairment charges, stock-based compensation and the effects of certain acquisition-related charges, including amortization of acquired intangible assets, transaction costs and contingent compensation 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 believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because MoSys 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 immediately 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 28, 2009, that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
