ANADIGICS Announces First Quarter 2009 Results

Quarterly Net Sales of $30.5 Million; Non-GAAP Net Loss Was ($0.21)

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the broadband wireless and wireline communications markets, reported first quarter 2009 net sales of $30.5 million, a decrease of 33% sequentially and 59% from the first quarter of 2008. As of April 4, 2009, cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term marketable securities totaled $132.5 million.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2009 was $22.0 million, or ($0.36) per share. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2009 was $12.8 million, or ($0.21) per share. Non-GAAP financial measures exclude charges of $9.2 million, or ($0.15) per share, associated with stock-based compensation, inventory, impairment of auction rate securities and a reduction in workforce. The details of the Non-GAAP adjustments are available in the accompanied financial schedules.

"Our results reflect typical wireless seasonality and the effects of the economic downturn on our cable and WiFi customers," commented Mario Rivas, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While I am not satisfied with our financial guidance for the second quarter, which continues to reflect the impact of the economic downturn on our customers, we are confident that we have the leading technologies to service our end markets and are focused on execution, both strategically and operationally. I am encouraged by our high level of design win activity and, as a result, expect a return to revenue growth in the second half of 2009."

Outlook for the Second Quarter 2009

Net sales for the second quarter of 2009 are expected to decline approximately 8% to 10% from the first quarter of 2009. Net loss per share on a GAAP basis for the second quarter is expected to be approximately ($0.29). Non-GAAP loss per share, excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, is expected to be approximately ($0.24). The net loss and non-GAAP loss per share are based on an estimated diluted weighted average outstanding common share count of 62 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, impairment of 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.
