FREMONT, Calif.--May 3, 2006--Virage Logic Corporation (Nasdaq:VIRL), a pioneer in Silicon Aware IP(TM) and leading provider of semiconductor intellectual property (IP) platforms, today announced the resignation of its Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Jens Meyerhoff, in order to pursue an opportunity with a late stage pre-initial public offering (IPO) company in the alternative energy market. Virage Logic's executive chairman, J. Daniel McCranie, will serve as interim CFO during a transition period with Meyerhoff and the search that is underway for a new CFO.
"During the time that I have been with Virage Logic, I have seen great progress in the increasing maturity of the operations of a company that has established a proven track record of delivering technically superior IP on advanced process nodes for the last ten years," said Jens Meyerhoff, CFO of Virage Logic. "It is therefore with some regret that I have decided to leave the company to pursue a challenging new opportunity outside of California in a region that I believe will provide a better infrastructure for my family and the education of my children."
"While we are of course sorry to lose someone of Jens' caliber, I am very pleased with the progress we have made as a management team in terms of establishing the infrastructure and operational excellence needed to scale the business and deliver greater customer satisfaction and shareholder value," said Dan McCranie, executive chairman of Virage Logic. "We wish Jens the best in his future endeavors and thank him for his contributions. I am confident that our strong management team, well running Finance organization and aggressive recruiting plan will enable us to successfully and quickly transition through this change."
