SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 1, 2015–
(NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast,
intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today
reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

First Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Achieved another quarter of double-digit design wins;
  • Secured new Bandwidth Engine® design wins with existing Tier-One
  • Completed underwritten public offering of common stock for net
    proceeds of $21.4 million; and
  • Ended the quarter with total cash and investments of $40.7 million.

Management Commentary

“Building upon the design win momentum generated last quarter, we
achieved another quarter of double-digit design win activity, putting us
on track to achieve our goal of doubling design wins again in 2015,”
commented Len Perham, president and CEO of MoSys. “Most of our design
wins in the quarter were for our Bandwidth Engine products and reflect,
in some cases, additional market penetration with existing customers. In
several instances, these customers are now re-using the Bandwidth Engine
architecture as a building block for new systems or line card
applications to achieve higher aggregate data rates or new features. We
also have multiple active design engagements with customers for our
LineSpeed™ products, particularly our newest product, the LineSpeed 100G
Low Power Retimer, targeting high data-rate, low-power, smart optical
module applications.

“In addition, we continued to make progress on our product development
roadmap, especially with our new Bandwidth Engine 3 product family,
which we expect to bring to market in the second half of the year. We
remain on track with the development schedules of our early Bandwidth
Engine 3 alpha customers and our NPU partner, EZchip, and continue to
work closely with our FPGA partners, Altera and Xilinx.”

Mr. Perham concluded, “Overall, customer interest and sales activity for
both the Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed product families remain very
robust, setting the stage for additional design wins in the coming
quarters. We remain focused on doubling design wins again this year,
bringing additional products to market, and expanding our served
available market and customer base, while remaining well positioned to
support our customers’ production ramps.”

First Quarter Results

Total net revenue for the first quarter of 2015 was $0.8 million,
compared with $1.1 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2014 and
$1.3 million in the first quarter of 2014.

the first quarter of 2014.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2015 was 69 percent, compared with
76 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014 and 57 percent for the first

Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2015
were $8.5 million, compared with $9.8 million in the previous quarter
and $8.9 million for the first quarter of 2014. First quarter 2015
operating expenses included $0.2 million of amortization of intangible
assets and $1.2 million in stock-based compensation expense.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $8.0 million, or ($0.15)
per share, compared with a net loss of $9.0 million, or ($0.18) per
share, in the previous quarter and a net loss of $8.1 million, or
($0.16) per share, for the first quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net loss for
the first quarter of 2015 was $6.5 million, or ($0.12) per share, which
excludes amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation
expense. Earnings per share for the first quarter of 2015 were computed

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement MoSys’ consolidated financial statements presented in
accordance with GAAP, MoSys uses non-GAAP financial measures that
exclude from the statement of operations the effects of stock-based
compensation and amortization of recorded intangible assets. MoSys’
management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial
measures is useful to investors and other interested persons because
they are one of the primary indicators that MoSys’ management uses for
planning and forecasting future performance. MoSys’ management believes
that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these
items is useful to investors because management does not consider these
charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core
operational activities of the company that are within the control of
management or that would be used to evaluate management’s operating

Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP
financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is provided in
a table below the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The
non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be
considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures
calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated
in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial
statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial
measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and
therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by
other companies. For additional information regarding these non-GAAP
financial measures, and management’s explanation of why it considers
such measures to be useful, refer to the Form 8-K dated May 1, 2015,
that the company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
