"The fourth quarter marked the completion of a very successful year for Silicon Image. We saw revenue grow 67 percent year-over-year. Our gross margins expanded to 62.4 percent in the fourth quarter and reflected an average improvement year-over-year in excess of 600 basis points. In addition to our financial success, we saw HDMI continue its rapid adoption, and we have clearly established ourselves as the quality and interoperability leader. Furthermore, the successful launch of our new SteelVine™ products positions us for above average growth in our storage business for 2005 and 2006," commented Steve Tirado, Silicon Image's new president and chief executive officer.
"Despite a tight business climate, we were able to achieve record product revenue, expand our gross margins and tightly control our operating expenses. Even so, in the fourth quarter we experienced a decline in our licensing revenue, resulting in flat earnings per diluted share quarter-to-quarter. The decline in licensing revenue was due to a multi-million dollar transaction anticipated to close in the fourth quarter. We continue to work this deal and are optimistic that it will close in the first quarter," commented Bob Gargus, chief financial officer of Silicon Image. "Furthermore, it is noteworthy to point out that on a year-to-year revenue increase of slightly under $70 million, we were able to improve our pro-forma bottom line by slightly more than $31 million to the bottom-line. Our improved financials combined with our new products, the various partnerships, and the rapid adoption of HDMI contributed to a very good year for Silicon Image."
The Company will host a conference call at 2:00 p.m. PST today to discuss its fourth quarter 2004 results and business outlook. The call will be broadcast over the Internet and can be accessed on the investor relations section of the Company's Web site located at www.siliconimage.com.
