SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, today reported consolidated financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011. All financial results are reported in U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted.

Summary Third Quarter Fiscal 2011 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue was $20.0 million, a year-to-year increase of 15 percent
  • Licensee royalty units grew to 163 million units from 135 million units in Q3'10
  • Non-GAAP net income was $4.7 million or $0.09 per share; up 21 percent year-to-year
  • Cash and investment balances ended the quarter at $108.4 million, a year-to-year increase of $57.1 million

Revenue from royalties was $13.4 million, an increase of 11 percent from the third quarter a year ago, driven by a 20 percent increase in units. License revenue was $6.6 million, an increase of 23 percent from the $5.4 million reported in the third quarter a year ago.

Q3'11 GAAP costs and operating expenses were $16.0 million, an increase of $2.4 million over Q3'10. The increase compared with Q3'10 was due mainly to higher R&D and marketing costs.

Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, which excludes certain stock and non-recurring charges, was $4.7 million or $0.09 per share, compared with $3.9 million or $0.08 per share in the third quarter a year ago. The tables below provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures used in this press release to the corresponding GAAP results.

"We announced the first MIPS-Based mobile handsets and tablets during the quarter, and also received our first mobile-related royalties for these devices. These are significant milestones for MIPS as we continue to make inroads into the mobile device market," said Sandeep Vij, chief executive officer, MIPS Technologies.

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 third quarter of fiscal 2011 ending March 31, 2011, $1.5 million stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $395,000 to research and development, $462,000 to sales and marketing and $617,000 to general and administrative. 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 third fiscal quarter of fiscal 2010 ending March 31, 2010, $800,000 stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $297,000 to research and development, $221,000 to sales and marketing and $282,000 to general and administrative.

(c)     This adjustment reflects the severance payment to the Company's former employees allocated to sales and marketing.

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

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