Fiscal 2019 Third Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was $2.2 million, compared with revenue of $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2019, and $3.5 million in the third quarter 2018. The decrease from the third quarter of 2018 was primarily due to lower shipments of mature products and display bridge solutions.  

Sales of new products in the third quarter of 2019 were $1.0 million, compared with $0.7 million of the second quarter of 2019 and $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase from the second quarter of 2019 was mainly due to an increase of connectivity product revenue. The decline from the same period a year ago was primarily due to a significant decrease in display bridge sales that were not offset by increased revenue from new product sales. Mature product revenue was $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared with $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, and $2.0 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Third quarter 2019 GAAP gross margin was 48.2%, compared with 49.0% in the second quarter of 2019, and 49.7% in the third quarter of 2018. 

Third quarter 2019 non-GAAP gross margin was 48.9%, compared with 49.8% in the second quarter of 2019 and 50.5% in the third quarter of 2018.

Third quarter 2019 GAAP operating expenses were $5.2 million, compared with $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, and $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Third quarter 2019 non-GAAP operating expenses were $4.5 million, compared with $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, and $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Third quarter 2019 GAAP net loss was $4.3 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with $4.6 million, or $0.05 per share, in the second quarter of 2019, and $3.3 million, or $0.03 per share, in the third quarter of 2018.

Third quarter 2019 non-GAAP net loss was $3.5 million, or $0.03 per share, compared with $3.8 million, or $0.04 per share, in the second quarter of 2019, and $2.7 million, or $0.03 per share, in the third quarter of 2018.

Please see the language included in the section below titled Non-GAAP Financial Measures for an explanation of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures.

QuickLogic uses its website (www.quicklogic.com), the company blog (https://www.quicklogic.com/blog/), corporate Twitter account (@QuickLogic_Corp), Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/QuickLogic), and LinkedIn page (https://www.linkedin.com/company/13512/) as channels of distribution of information about its products, its planned financial and other announcements, its attendance at upcoming investor and industry conferences, and other matters. Such information may be deemed material information, and QuickLogic may use these channels to comply with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD.  Therefore, investors should monitor the Company's website and its social media accounts in addition to following the Company's press releases, SEC filings, public conference calls, and webcasts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

QuickLogic reports financial information in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or U.S. GAAP, but believes that non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in evaluating its operating results and comparing its performance to comparable companies. Accordingly, the Company excludes charges related to stock-based compensation, restructuring, the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets and the tax effect on other comprehensive income in calculating non-GAAP (i) income (loss) from operations, (ii) net income (loss), (iii) net income (loss) per share, and (iv) gross margin percentage. The Company provides this non-GAAP information to enable investors to evaluate its operating results in a manner similar to how the Company analyzes its operating results and to provide consistency and comparability with similar companies in the Company's industry.

Management uses the non-GAAP measures, which exclude gains, losses and other charges that are considered by management to be outside of the Company's core operating results, internally to evaluate its operating performance against results in prior periods and its operating plans and forecasts. In addition, the non-GAAP measures are used to plan for the Company's future periods, and serve as a basis for the allocation of the Company's resources, management of operations and the measurement of profit-dependent cash and equity compensation paid to employees and executive officers.

Investors should note, however, that the non-GAAP financial measures used by QuickLogic may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies. QuickLogic does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures alone or as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation of U.S. GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures is included in the financial statements portion of this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures with their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding our future business expectations, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

These and other potential factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from the results predicted are described in more detail in the Company's public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including the risks discussed in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in the Company's prior press releases, which are available on the Company's Investor Relations website at http://ir.quicklogic.com/ and on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
