ANADIGICS Announces First Quarter 2010 Results

Quarterly Net Sales of $43.5 Million; up 4.1% Sequentially; GAAP Net Loss of ($0.08) per Share; Non-GAAP Net Loss of ($0.04) per Share; Company Targets a Non-GAAP Profit in Second Quarter 2010

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - April 26, 2010) -  ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the broadband wireless and wireline communications markets, reported first quarter 2010 net sales of $43.5 million, an increase of 4.1% sequentially and 42.7% from the first quarter of 2009. As of April 3, 2010, cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term marketable securities totaled $90.4 million.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $5.2 million, or ($0.08) per share. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $2.7 million, or ($0.04) per share. 

"Our first quarter sequential revenue increase was a notable accomplishment as we countered the industry's seasonal softness and achieved our fourth consecutive quarter of revenue growth," commented Mario Rivas, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our new product releases and design win activity remains strong as we are gaining increased market share in wireless and across our customer base."

"Over the last year, we increased our revenue by approximately $13.0 million, or over 40%, and reduced our non-GAAP loss by $10.1 million, nearly double the percentage rate of the improvement in revenue," commented Tom Shields, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "We anticipate crossing another key milestone for the Company by generating a non-GAAP profit in the second quarter of 2010 by capitalizing on the operating leverage created from our product mix and manufacturing operations."

Outlook for the Second Quarter 2010

Net sales for the second quarter of 2010 are expected to increase approximately 12% sequentially to $48.7 million from the first quarter revenue of $43.5 million. Net loss on a GAAP basis for the second quarter is expected to be approximately ($0.04) per share. Non-GAAP income for the second quarter is expected to be approximately $0.1 million, or $0.001 per share, excluding non-cash stock compensation expense. The per share numbers are based on an estimated diluted weighted average outstanding common share count of 64.5 million.

The statements regarding the Company's anticipated future performance are forward looking and actual results may differ materially. Please see safe harbor statement at the end of this press release.

This press release includes financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP, consisting of non-GAAP net income or loss and non-GAAP income or loss per share. Management uses non-GAAP net income or loss and non-GAAP income or loss per share to evaluate the company's operating and financial performance in light of business objectives, for planning purposes, when publicly providing our business outlook and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. ANADIGICS believes that these measures are useful to investors because they enhance investors' ability to review the company's business from the same perspective as the company's management and facilitate comparisons of this period's results with prior periods. These non-GAAP measures exclude charges related to stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, auction rate securities and non-comparative charges in the first quarter of 2009 resulting from inventory reserves associated with reduced demand. Non-GAAP measures are used by some investors when assessing the ongoing operating and financial performance of our Company. These financial measures are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. Management acknowledges that stock-based compensation is a recurring cost and is an important part of our employee's compensation and impacts their performance. However the expense is non-cash in nature and there are various valuation methodologies and assumptions used in determining stock-based compensation that may be unrelated to operations, such as volatility and current interest rates. The presentation of the additional information should not be considered a substitute for net income or loss or income or loss per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Limitations of non-GAAP financial measures. The primary material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP measures as compared to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are (i) they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in ANADIGICS industry, and (ii) they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. We compensate for these limitations by providing reconciliations of reported net income or loss and income or loss per share to non-GAAP net income or net loss and non-GAAP income or loss per share, respectively, within this press release.
