QuickLogic Announces Fiscal 2011 First Quarter Results

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the lowest power Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs) leader, today announced the financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended April 3, 2011.

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $5.5 million, down 20% sequentially and up 2% from the first quarter of 2010. During the first quarter, new product revenue decreased to $1.2 million from $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. New product revenue accounted for 22% of the total revenue in the first quarter. During the first quarter, mature product revenue decreased 8% to $4.3 million from $4.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, accounting for 78% of the total revenue in the first quarter.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in both the fourth quarter and the first quarter of 2010. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with a non-GAAP net income of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010 and a non-GAAP net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2010.

"As previously announced, we had a revenue shortfall in the first quarter. While I'm disappointed in our short term results, I am not discouraged about our future success in light of our continued positive progress in the smartphone and tablet markets," said Andy Pease, QuickLogic's President and CEO. "We continue on track toward a mid-year launch of a previously discussed VEE/DPO-enabled smartphone and we continue to make progress on several new VEE/DPO-enabled tablet designs."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

QuickLogic reports financial information in accordance with GAAP, but believes that non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in evaluating its operating results and comparing its performance to comparable companies. Accordingly, the Company excludes charges related to stock-based compensation, restructuring, the gain on sale of the Company's investment in TowerJazz Semiconductor Ltd. and the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets and equipment, the tax effect on other comprehensive income in calculating non-GAAP (i) income (loss) from operations, (ii) net income (loss), (iii) net income (loss) per share, and (iv) gross margin percentage. The Company provides this non-GAAP information to enable investors to evaluate its operating results in a manner similar to how the Company analyzes its operating results and to provide consistency and comparability with similar companies in the Company's industry.

Management uses the non-GAAP measures, which exclude gains, losses and other charges that are considered by management to be outside of the Company's core operating results, internally to evaluate its operating performance against results in prior periods and its operating plans and forecasts. In addition, the non-GAAP measures are used to plan for the Company's future periods, and serve as a basis for the allocation of Company resources, management of operations and the measurement of profit-dependent cash and equity compensation paid to employees and executive officers.

Investors should note, however, that the non-GAAP financial measures used by QuickLogic may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies. QuickLogic does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures alone or as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures is included in the financial statements portion of this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures with their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
