FREMONT, Calif.--July 27, 2006--Virage Logic Corporation (Nasdaq:VIRL), a pioneer in Silicon Aware IP(TM) and leading provider of semiconductor intellectual property (IP) platforms, today reported its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2006.
Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 were $15.3 million, compared with $12.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2005 and $15.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2006. License revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 was $11.1 million, up 20 percent from $9.3 million year-over-year and up seven percent sequentially from $10.4 million for the previous quarter. Royalties for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 were $4.2 million, compared with $2.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2005 and $4.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2006.
As reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 was $1.6 million, or $0.07 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.06 per share, for the same period a year ago and with net income of $176,000, or $0.01 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2006.
Excluding the effects of FAS123R, the company would have reported net income of $1.4 million, or $0.06 per share. Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 included $1.6 million of stock-based compensation expense related to the adoption of FAS123R. The exclusion of FAS123R from the company's net income represents a non-GAAP measure provided by the company to allow comparability to prior fiscal periods.
"We are very pleased to have achieved both sequential license revenue growth and continued profitability on a non-GAAP basis. These achievements are a result of the improvements we continue to make in managing the sales and engineering processes involved in licensing our semiconductor IP. We believe that these improvements together with the organizational changes that we've made in recent quarters will enable us to cost-effectively scale our semiconductor IP licensing growth," said Adam Kablanian, president and CEO.
Virage Logic also announced today its business outlook for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 ending September 30, 2006. The company currently anticipates total revenues of approximately $15.4 million to $15.8 million, including royalties of approximately $4.0 million to $4.3 million. The company expects to report a GAAP net loss of approximately $0.00 to $0.03 per share. The company also expects $1.8 million of stock-based compensation expense per FAS123R. Without the impact of stock-based compensation expense, the company would expect earnings per diluted share of $0.04 to $0.06 for the fourth fiscal quarter. Although this news release will be available on the company's website, the company disclaims any duty or intention to update these or any other forward-looking statements.
