Total revenue for the first quarter of 2010 was a record $10.6 million, an increase of 11% compared to $9.5 million reported for the first quarter of 2009. First quarter of 2010 licensing revenue was $4.7 million, an increase of 4% over $4.5 million reported for the first quarter of 2009. Royalty revenue for the first quarter of 2010 was a record $5 million, an increase of 32% over $3.8 million reported for the first quarter of 2009. Revenue from services for the first quarter of 2010 was $0.9 million, a 26% decrease compared to $1.2 million reported for the first quarter of 2009.

Gideon Wertheizer, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA, stated: "We are very pleased with our record first quarter revenue, which reflects the continued adoption of our DSP technologies by key players in the cellular and consumer electronics markets, as well as consistent growth in our royalty revenue. During the quarter, we announced new licenses for our DSPs with two leading players in the WiMAX market who are expanding into the LTE space. Also, we announced that Samsung is now deploying LTE datacard modems and dongles based on our DSP technology. We are encouraged by the pipeline build up, and believe we are on track with our revenue and profitability growth plans for the Company."

U.S. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2010 was $2.1 million, an increase of 51% over $1.4 million reported for the same period in 2009. U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2010 was $0.09, an increase of 29% compared to $0.07 for the first quarter of 2009.

Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2010 was $2.6 million and $0.12, respectively, representing an increase of 21% and 9%, respectively, over the $2.2 million and $0.11 reported for the first quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2010 and 2009, excluded an aggregate equity-based compensation expense of $0.6 million and $0.8 million, respectively.

During the quarter, the Company concluded five new license agreements. Four of the agreements were for CEVA DSP cores, platforms and software, and one was for CEVA Serial ATA (SATA) technology. Target applications for customer deployment are 2G and 3G handsets and data cards, set-top boxes, digital TVs and SSD drives. Geographically, two of the agreements signed were in Europe and three were in Asia.

Yaniv Arieli, Chief Financial Officer of CEVA, stated: "We have demonstrated good progress during the first quarter of 2010, reporting revenues above the mid range of our guidance and setting a new record for royalty revenue. In addition, we achieved record high GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins of 93% and reported record non-GAAP net income for the quarter. We believe our solid pipeline of licensing deals and continued royalty growth will reinforce our strong financial foundation and positions the Company for long-term profitability. We also continued to generate significant positive cash flow during the first quarter in the amount of $6.1 million, which further strengthens our balance sheet and improves our financial flexibility. As of March 31, 2010, CEVA's cash balances, marketable securities and long term bank deposits were $106.7 million."
