SUNNYVALE, Calif.--Apr. 28, 2009-
- MoSys, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leading provider of high-density system-on-chip (SoC) memory intellectual property (IP), today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009.Recent Highlights
- Reported first quarter total revenue of $2.6 million
- Ended quarter with total cash and investments of $62 million
- Completed the exit of the analog/mixed-signal product lines, which is expected to result in a $5.5 million annual cost savings
Commenting on the Companys first quarter financial performance, Len Perham, MoSys President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, The first quarter remained challenging for MoSys due to the continued uncertainty in the macroeconomic environment as customers delayed or cancelled projects and tightly managed spending levels. During the quarter, we secured two new 1T-SRAM macro licenses, one of which we anticipate will be used in an application in a new market segment for our technology. Royalty revenue decreased from the previous quarter primarily due to the gradual transition by a major integrated device manufacturer licensee to an SoC utilizing a more advanced processing node. As a result of this transition, royalties that were previously being reported and recognized by us in the quarter in which the licensee shipped the SoCs are now being reported and recognized by us in the quarter subsequent to shipment. In response to the global economic crisis, we continued to closely manage expenses while also completing our exit from the analog/mixed-signal product lines, which contributed to a sequential decrease in total operating expenses.
Mr. Perham continued, In order to position the Company for future growth, we remain focused on furthering the proliferation of our proven 1T-SRAM technology, strengthening our foundry partnerships, bringing our 1T-FLASH product to market and leveraging our patented IP for the development of new products to serve an expanded available market. 1T-SRAM remains the cost effective solution of choice for designs where high-density, embedded memory is a requirement.First Quarter Results
