SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov 01, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Monolithic System Technology, Inc. (MoSys),
(Nasdaq:MOSY), the industry’s leading provider of high-density
system-on-chip (SoC) embedded memory, today reported financial results
for its third quarter ended September 30, 2005.

Financial Results

Total net revenue for the third quarter of 2005 increased to $4.1
million, a 35 percent sequential increase over the prior quarter.
Third quarter total revenue increased from $3.1 million reported in
the previous quarter and from $1.7 million in the same period a year
ago.

Total net revenue consisted of $3.2 million from licensing and
$897,000 from royalties. Licensing revenue for the third quarter
increased 67 percent from the $1.9 million reported in the previous
quarter and from the $128,000 reported in the same period a year ago.
Third quarter licensing revenue reflected the completion of several
existing projects under contract as well as revenue from newly secured
license agreements. Royalty revenues decreased by $224,000 compared to
the previous quarter and by $591,000 year-over-year, reflecting
seasonality in the consumer electronics business and product lifecycle
transitions of our customers.

The gross margin percentage in the third quarter of 2005 was 84
percent, increasing from 80 percent in the second quarter of 2005, and
above the 81 percent gross margin reported in the third quarter of
2004.

Total operating expenses for the quarter were $4.1 million and
included approximately $450,000 in expenses related to the UniRAM
litigation.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the
United States, the operating loss for the third quarter was $618,000,
as compared to a second quarter loss of $1.2 million. Net income for
the quarter was $50,000, or $0.00 per share, compared to a net loss of
$579,000, or ($0.02) per share, in the previous quarter and net income
of $5.1 million, or $0.15 diluted earnings per share, in the same
period last year.

“We are pleased with the results of the third quarter as we
recorded a substantial increase sequentially and year-over-year in
total net revenue and made good progress towards our goal of
profitability by reaching break-even in net income,” commented Chet
Silvestri, Chief Executive Officer of MoSys. “During the quarter, we
saw strong interest in our new CLASSIC Macro family of silicon-proven
off-the-shelf designs. The introduction of these new products, along
with our efforts to enhance and improve our sales and marketing
functions should contribute to a continued increase in licensing
revenues in 2006.”

“We announced the appointment of Dhaval Ajmera to the position of
Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Business Development and believe
his 23 years of executive management and technology licensing
experience will further the proliferation of our 1T-SRAM solutions for
both our custom macros and off-the-shelf CLASSIC Macro configurations.
One of Dhaval’s priorities will be to strengthen our sales presence in
Asia as that region represents the largest potential for our
high-density memories. As an example, during the quarter, we signed a
new license agreement with LG Electronics for a high volume consumer
electronic application. We look forward to working with companies like
LG to expand the acceptance and implementation of our unique 1T-SRAM
technologies in the high-volume consumer market, which requires the
density, reliability and cost-saving characteristics that 1T-SRAM
provides,” concluded Mr. Silvestri.

Business Outlook

Chet Silvestri, Chief Executive Officer and Mark Voll, Chief
Financial Officer will update the business outlook and give guidance
for the fourth quarter of 2005 during their financial results
conference call at 2:15 p.m. PT on Tuesday, November 1, 2005.

About MoSys, Inc.

Founded in 1991, MoSys (Nasdaq:MOSY), develops, licenses and
markets innovative memory technologies for semiconductors. MoSys’
patented 1T-SRAM technologies offer a combination of high density, low
power consumption, high speed and low cost unmatched by other
available memory technologies. The single transistor bit cell used in
1T-SRAM memory results in the technology achieving much higher density
than traditional six transistor SRAMs while using the same standard
logic manufacturing processes. 1T-SRAM technologies also offer the
familiar, refresh-free interface and high performance for random
address access cycles associated with traditional SRAMs. In addition,
these technologies can reduce operating power consumption by a factor
of four compared with traditional SRAM technology, contributing to
making them ideal for embedding large memories in System on Chip (SoC)
designs. MoSys’ licensees have shipped more than 98 million chips
incorporating 1T-SRAM embedded memory technologies, demonstrating
excellent manufacturability in a wide range of silicon processes and
applications. MoSys is headquartered at 755 N. Mathilda Avenue,
Sunnyvale, California 94085. More information is available on MoSys’
