Eli Fruchter, CEO of EZchip, commented, "2013 has been a record year for EZchip in revenues, operating and net income. Revenues increased 30% year over year with an outstanding 50% net margin. We believe our 2013 growth likely exceeded the growth in the merchant NPU market and the growth in the edge routing market, and that such growth likely resulted in an increase to our market share in 2013.

"During the year, we completed the transition from NP-2 and NP-3 to NP-4 and we are pleased to confirm that all our NP-4 customers and all NP-4 platforms are now in production. NP-4 entered production at the end of 2011, exceeded the NP-3 run rate at the end of 2012, and generated more than 50% of our revenues in 2013, representing over 100% increase from 2012. We expect NP-4 revenues to continue to increase in 2014, assuming the router spending level the market experienced in 2013 continues and our key customers continue to gain market share.

"In 2013 we sampled the NP-5, our fifth generation NP, that is now being used by our customers to build their NP-5 based platforms.  We expect these platforms to enter production in the second half of 2014. We have provided our customers with a new product generation every three years and we are proud to report that we have been able to gain more customers and design wins as we move from each generation to the next. We believe that NP-5 is on track to be yet another successful product.  

"In 2013 we also laid the foundation for a transition to the NPS line of network processors, targeting many different market segments such as switches and routers, network monitoring, lawful interception, network appliances, load balancers, DPI, security, network virtualization, NFV and SDN, all with a single chip. We believe that we will be able to win in these market segments and significantly diversify our customer base as a result, thereby reducing our current customer concentration. Tier-1 customers in all these market segments have expressed a strong interest in NPS and we believe that the NPS will start gaining customer wins in the second half of 2014, which implies customer product prototypes in 2015 and the start of production in 2016."
