Virage Logic Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor intellectual property (IP) platforms and pioneer in Silicon Aware IP(TM), today reported its financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2005.
Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 were $12.8 million, compared with $13.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2004, and with $15.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2005. License revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 was $10.1 million, compared with $11.2 million for the same quarter a year ago and with $13.1 million for the prior quarter. Royalties for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 were $2.7 million, compared with $1.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2004 and with $2.8 million the prior quarter.
As reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) net loss was $988,000, or $0.04 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2005. This compared with net income of $189,000, or $0.01 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2004 and with net income of $1.7 million, or $0.08 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
"While we believe the fundamentals of our business are solid, we are disappointed with our results for the second quarter which were primarily impacted by delayed customer purchasing decisions due to what we believe to be a temporary slow down in the business," said Adam Kablanian, Virage Logic's president and chief executive officer. "Beyond the impact of these business conditions, we also experienced some operational issues that negatively impacted our ability to fulfill existing orders. We are addressing these issues and are confident that these measures together with our leading technology offering and solid business model will enable us to bring the company's financial performance back to profitability."
Continued Kablanian, "During the quarter, we launched our Silicon Aware IP initiative, which calls for Virage Logic's entire product portfolio of Physical IP -- including memories, logic and I/Os -- to be designed and tightly integrated with embedded Infrastructure IP for test, diagnostics, repair, and yield enhancements. The benefits that Silicon Aware IP delivers, including optimized yield, improved reliability and rapid time-to-volume, are particularly significant at the advanced process nodes. We believe that this initiative is the right strategic direction for the company to further extend its competitive leadership position at advanced process nodes and we are encouraged by the increasing customer adoption of our Self-Test and Repair (STAR) Memory System(TM), which represents the company's first Silicon Aware IP offering."
For the first six months of fiscal 2005, revenues were $28.6 million, up 20 percent from $23.8 million for the first six months of fiscal 2004. Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2005 was $751,000, or $0.03 per share, compared with a net loss of $170,000, or $0.01 per share, for the first six months of fiscal 2004.
