MoSys, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results


SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 22, 2015-- MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Second Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • More than doubled IC revenue sequentially as early customer production ramps begin;
  • Secured a new Bandwidth Engine® design win with existing Tier One customer in a new application;
  • Expanded both our customer and application base with multiple wins at the data center edge; and
  • Ended the quarter with total cash and investments of $35.3 million.

Management Commentary

"Our second quarter reflected continuing progress as IC revenue more than doubled over the previous quarter and backlog increased, while we fulfilled early production orders for the initial ramping of our first Bandwidth Engine 2 programs," commented Len Perham, president and CEO of MoSys. "We expect our IC revenues to continue to increase in the coming quarters, as our broader design win base begins to cycle into production.

"Also, during the quarter, we further increased our design win count, which reflects the continued expansion of our Bandwidth Engine customer base. Additionally, the Bandwidth Engine application footprint is expanding, as demonstrated by our design wins in both the router and switch space, as well as at the edge of the data center. We are gratified by the amount of activity in our sales funnel at present. The goal to double design wins year over year remains achievable from our current vantage point."

Mr. Perham continued, "I am pleased to report that the Bandwidth Engine 3 tape out is imminent. Most importantly, we remain closely aligned with the development schedules of our NPU partner, EZchip Semiconductor, our Bandwidth Engine 3 alpha customers, and our FPGA partners. We also made further progress with the sampling of our latest LineSpeed„™ 100G PHY ICs and expect to release several new products and secure additional design wins over the next few quarters. With our strong global sales efforts, robust pipeline and active collaboration with strategic partners, I believe we are well positioned for growth in the coming quarters."

Second Quarter Results

Total net revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $1.0 million, compared with $0.8 million reported in the first quarter of 2015 and $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Second quarter 2015 total revenue included product revenue of $0.5 million as compared with $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $1.0 million in the year ago period. Royalty and other revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $0.5 million, as compared with $0.6 million in the previous quarter and $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 43 percent, compared with 69 percent in the first quarter of 2015 and 42 percent for the second quarter of 2014.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2015 were $7.3 million, compared with $8.5 million in the previous quarter and $7.9 million for the second quarter of 2014. Second quarter 2015 operating expenses included $0.8 million in amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $6.9 million, or ($0.11) per share, compared with a net loss of $8.0 million, or ($0.15) per share, in the previous quarter and a net loss of $7.2 million, or ($0.14) per share, for the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $6.1 million, or ($0.09) per share, which excludes amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2015 were computed using approximately 64.7 million weighted shares on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.

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 stock-based compensation and amortization of recorded intangible assets. 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 22, 2015, that the company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
