For the second quarter of 2015, revenue was $15.1 million, compared to $14.4 million in the prior quarter and $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Second quarter 2015 GAAP operating expenses were $9.7 million, compared to $10.2 million in the previous quarter and $9.6 million in the second quarter of 2014.
For the second quarter of 2015, the Company recorded a GAAP net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $3.4 million, or $0.14 per share, in the first quarter of 2015 and GAAP net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.11 per share, in the second quarter of 2014.

Second quarter 2015 operating expenses on a non-GAAP basis were $8.8 million, compared to $9.2 million in the previous quarter and $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2014.
For the second quarter of 2015, non-GAAP net loss was $1.9 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $2.3 million, or $0.10 per share, in the first quarter of 2015 and non-GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.06 per share, in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2015 was a negative $0.5 million, compared to a negative $1.1 million in the previous quarter and a positive $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2014.
"First half 2015 product revenue increased 15% over 2014, driven by continued growth in our chip business. Highlighting the quarter was the announcement of ASUS selecting Pixelworks’ Iris mobile display processor for its innovative Hero ZenPad tablet," said Bruce Walicek, President and CEO of Pixelworks. “The adoption of Iris by a recognized market leader such as ASUS for its flagship platform serves as important validation of Pixelworks’ mobile technology as well as Iris' value proposition to mobile OEMs. Also during the quarter, we formally introduced our second chip for the mobile market, and we expect to begin initial volume production of the Iris family during the third quarter.”
