ANADIGICS Announces First Quarter 2011 Results

Quarterly Net Sales of $43.5 Million; GAAP Net Loss of ($0.16) per Share; Non-GAAP Net Loss of ($0.07) per Share

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the broadband wireless and wireline communications markets, reported first quarter 2011 net sales of $43.5 million which were flat to the same year ago period and down 27.8% from the prior quarter.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $10.7 million, or ($0.16) per share. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $5.0 million, or ($0.07) per share, excluding stock based compensation, management separation charges and adjustments in marketable securities. The reported Non-GAAP results were in line with the guidance previously provided.

As of April 2, 2011, cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term marketable securities totaled $104 million.

Outlook for the Second Quarter 2011

Shipments to our largest North American wireless customer will decrease during the second quarter resulting in an expected sequential decrease in Wireless net sales of approximately 25% to 30%. While Broadband net sales are expected to increase sequentially by approximately 35%, it will not be sufficient to offset the decline in Wireless sales. As such, total Company net sales for the second quarter of 2011 are expected to decrease sequentially by approximately 15% - 19% to a range of $35 - $37 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 ($0.22) to ($0.23) per share, which includes a restructuring charge of $0.02 per share. Net loss on a Non-GAAP basis for the second quarter is expected to be approximately ($0.16) to ($0.17) per share.

"The decrease in net sales at our largest customer is the result of programs reaching end of life and a loss in market share related to the customer's change in chipset vendors that do not utilize our power amplifiers," commented Ron Michels, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We remain actively engaged with this large customer and its chipset vendors on next generation platforms. Additionally, we are proactively taking steps to align our cost base with revenues over the short-term, while prudently allocating resources to further expand our technology base and product offerings going forward. New product development will be a critical area of focus as we increase the breadth of our product portfolio and enhance our commitment to innovation and technology leadership. In fact, we are already heavily engaged with all of our customers and are actively pursuing several new opportunities across both Wireless and Broadband.

"While I am disappointed in our revenue guidance for the second quarter, I want to emphasize that our foundation for future success is still intact. We have an expanding technology pipeline and strong relationships with our current customers. Together our solid balance sheet, prudent cost reductions and investment in future products will enable us to reposition ANADIGICS as an industry leader. Despite the significant near-term challenges that we face, I am committed to returning our company to growth and profitability and becoming more effective at everything that we do."

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, management separation and restructuring charges and marketable securities' adjustments. 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.

Conference Call

ANADIGICS' senior management will conduct a conference call today at 8:30 AM Eastern Time. A live audio Webcast will be available at www.anadigics.com/investors. A recording of the call will be available approximately two hours after the end of the call on the ANADIGICS Web site or by dialing 800-642-1687 conference ID 60793547 (available until May 10, 2011).
