Virage Logic Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2009 Results

FREMONT, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 28, 2009— Virage Logic Corporation (NASDAQ:VIRL), the semiconductor industry’s trusted IP partner, today reported its financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2008.

Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $11.3 million, compared with $14.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 and $15.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. License revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $8.5 million, compared with $10.8 million for the same period a year ago and $12.1 million for the prior quarter. Royalties for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 were $2.8 million, compared with $3.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 and $3.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

As reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $2.6 million, or ($0.11) per share, compared with net income of $1.1 million, or $0.05 per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 and net loss of $47,000 or ($0.00) per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

Excluding the effects of FAS123R expenses, acquisition related expenses and amortization of intangibles, the company would have reported a net loss of $1.4 million, or ($0.06) per share. The reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP financial results includes $75,000 of stock-based compensation expense and $2.0 million of amortization of intangibles and other acquisition related charges reduced by $922,000 tax effect for a net total of $1.2 million.

“Our first quarter fiscal 2009 proved to be challenging. We began with a solid backlog and strong sales pipeline, but the rapid decline of the semiconductor industry impacted our business towards the end of the quarter,” said Dr. Alex Shubat, president and chief executive officer (CEO), Virage Logic. “A number of customers delayed orders that we now expect will close in the next one to two quarters. We also experienced a small number of cancellations, something the company has never seen before. Our decline in royalties is attributed to lower wafer starts at our major foundry partners.”

“Last week we announced a restructure that will increase efficiencies as part of our on-going transformation. We consolidated two smaller research and development (R&D) sites into four major R&D centers and realigned our sales resources to market opportunities. We expect to realize approximately a 13% reduction in labor expenses and additional overhead savings from site consolidations.”

“The combination of our strong cash position and the transformational efforts to date allows us to take advantage of the economic environment and execute on both organic and inorganic growth initiatives.

  • Broadening our product portfolio. We announced earlier this week the acquisition of silicon proven standards-based IP and development expertise: PCIe, HDMI and MIPI that are used in AMD’s extensive graphics processor product line. These products will substantially increase our Interface IP portfolio.
  • Being first-to-market with next generation advanced technology products. At the 32-nanometer (nm) process node, we began shipping front ends of our SiWare™ Memory products. At the 40/45nm process node, we added blue chip customers for our Intelli™ DDR3 product. We also received record orders with the latest release of our STAR™ Memory System.”

“In summary, despite the current economic uncertainty, we remain confident that executing our transformation initiatives will enable us to retain our leadership position. We anticipate second quarter fiscal 2009 revenues of $11.25 million to $12.75 million and non-GAAP loss per share of ($0.06) to $0.00 per share. The company expects to realize, before tax, approximately $2.2 to $2.4 million in non-GAAP expenses comprised of FAS123R stock compensation, acquisition related and restructuring expenses.”

Although this news release will be available on the company’s website, the company disclaims any duty or intention to update these or any other forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

We believe the financial figures we include that are not presented in accordance with GAAP assist investors in understanding our business and operating results. This information is intended to provide investors with useful supplemental data regarding the underlying economics of our business operations because operating results presented under GAAP may include charges that are nonrecurring or not necessarily relevant to ongoing operations, or are difficult to forecast for future periods. The Company’s management evaluates and makes operating decisions about its business operations primarily based on revenue and the core costs of those business operations. Management believes that acquisition related charges, stock-based compensation and restructuring charges are not part of its core business operations. Therefore, management presents non-GAAP financial measures, along with GAAP measures, in this earnings release by excluding these items from the period expenses. The income statement line items involved in the adjustment from GAAP to non-GAAP presentation in this earnings release are restructuring charges, acquisition related charges, and stock-based compensation that are included in cost of revenues, research and development, general and administrative and sales and marketing expenses. To determine our non-GAAP tax provision, the Company recalculates tax based on non-GAAP income before taxes and adjusts accordingly.
