SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital consumer, home networking, wireless, communications and business applications, today reported consolidated financial results for its second fiscal quarter 2011 ended December 31, 2010. All financial results are reported in U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted.

Summary Second Quarter Fiscal 2011 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue was $21.9 million, a year-to-year increase of 44 percent
  • Licensee royalty units grew to 173 million units from 126 million units in Q2'10
  • GAAP net income was $6.0 million or $0.11 per share; up $2.8 million year-to-year
  • Non-GAAP net income was $7.5 million or $0.14 per share; up 82 percent year-to-year
  • Cash and investment balances ended the quarter at $101 million, a year-to-year increase of $53 million

Revenue from royalties was $14.8 million, an increase of 30 percent from the second quarter a year ago driven by a 37 percent increase in units. License revenue was $7.0 million, an increase of 85 percent from the $3.8 million reported in the second quarter a year ago.

Q2'11 GAAP costs and operating expenses were $16.1 million; an increase of $3.0 million over Q2'10. The increase compared with Q2'10 was due mainly to higher R&D and Marketing investment.

Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, which excludes certain stock and non-recurring charges, was $7.5 million or $0.14 per share, compared with $4.1 million or $0.09 per share in the second quarter a year ago. The tables below provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures used in this press release to the corresponding GAAP results.

"Both our royalty revenue and earnings exceeded our expectations during the quarter. Our financial performance in the second quarter demonstrates our continued momentum across the digital home, networking and mobile markets. This momentum includes the addition of three new licenses with companies that are developing chips for mobile solutions. Now that we have publicly shown the first MIPS-Based smartphones and tablets, we look forward to continued traction in this area," said Sandeep Vij, MIPS Technologies chief executive officer.

These adjustments reconcile the Company's GAAP results of operations to the reported non-GAAP results of operations. The Company believes that presentation of net income and net income per share excluding discontinued operations, stock-based compensation expense, severance adjustment, gain on investment, and tax on change in legal structure provides meaningful supplemental information to investors, as well as management that is indicative of the Company's ongoing operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and budgeting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results, and may be different than non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

(a) This adjustment reflects the gain, net of tax, of the Analog Business Group.

(b) This adjustment reflects the stock-based compensation expense. For the second quarter of fiscal 2011 ending December 31, 2010, $1.2 million stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $364,000 to research and development, $304,000 to sales and marketing and $581,000 to general and administrative. For the first quarter of fiscal 2011 ending September 30, 2010, $894,000 stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $291,000 to research and development, $231,000 to sales and marketing and $372,000 to general and administrative. For the second fiscal quarter of fiscal 2010 ending September 30, 2009, $963,000 stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $341,000 to research and development, $222,000 to sales and marketing and $400,000 to general and administrative.

(c) This adjustment reflects the severance payment to the Company's former CEO allocated to general and administrative.

(d) This adjustment reflects a gain on an investment in a privately held company that was acquired. This gain was recorded in other income.

(e) This adjustment reflects the withholding tax in connection with the change in legal structure of foreign operations.
