MoSys, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for Cloud, network, and communications systems, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Third Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Achieved another quarter of double-digit design wins for Bandwidth Engine® and LineSpeed„™ products;
  • Shipped production and prototype quantities of Bandwidth Engine ICs to an expanding customer base; and
  • Accelerated Programmable Search Engine IC program to respond to initial data-center customer demand.

"During the quarter, we secured double-digit design wins, including Bandwidth Engine 2 wins for IP security appliance and video applications and multiple LineSpeed wins with new customers for networking, monitoring, and module applications," commented Len Perham, MoSys' president and chief executive officer. "We are also beginning to ship initial production quantities of Bandwidth Engine 2 to our lead IP security appliance customer. Furthermore, I am particularly encouraged by the interest in our Programmable Search Engine for applications in the expanding data-center market segment.

"Although we shipped production and pre-production quantities of ICs to multiple customers during the quarter, customer production schedules have not yet ramped to volumes originally anticipated by this point in the year. However, I continue to remain confident that a growth trend will become evident over the coming quarters as more of our designs from 2014 and 2015 commence production."

Total net revenue for the third quarter of 2016 was $1.6 million, consistent with the second quarter of 2016 and compared with $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. Product revenue in the third quarter of 2016 was $1.2 million, compared with $1.3 million in the previous quarter and $0.6 million in the year-ago period. Royalty and other revenue for the third quarter of 2016 was $0.4 million, compared with $0.3 million in the previous quarter and $0.5 million in the year ago period.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2016 was 58 percent, compared with 41 percent in the previous quarter and 22 percent for the third quarter of 2015.

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2016 were $5.4 million, compared with $6.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $10.3 million in the year-ago period. Third quarter 2016 operating expenses included stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible asset expenses of $0.7 million.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was $4.7 million, or ($0.07) per share, including stock-based compensation and amortization expenses. This compares with a net loss of $6.0 million, or ($0.09) per share, in the previous quarter and a net loss of $10.1 million, or ($0.15) per share, for the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was $4.0 million, or ($0.06) per share, which excludes amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. Earnings per share for the third quarter of 2016 was computed using approximately 66.1 million weighted shares on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

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, amortization of recorded intangible assets and restructuring 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 4, 2016, that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
