NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NAS: MSPD) , a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for communications infrastructure applications, today reported results for its fiscal first quarter of 2013. For the quarter ended December 28, 2012, Mindspeed recorded net revenues of $44.4 million and earnings per share of $0.14 on a non-GAAP basis, or $0.03 on a GAAP basis. The non-GAAP results include the benefit of the $6.0 million sale of non-core intellectual property. Net product revenue for the quarter was $38.4 million.

Product revenue from high-performance analog (HPA) products was $19.2 million, or 50 percent of fiscal first quarter 2013 product revenue, and increased eight percent sequentially from the prior quarter, marking another quarter of record revenue from this product line. Product revenue from communications processors was $14.6 million, or 38 percent of total product revenue, and was up four percent sequentially. This included $9.5 million of the former communications convergence processing (CCP) product revenue, excluding wireless, and $5.1 million of wide area networking (WAN) product revenue. Wireless infrastructure revenue contributed $4.6 million in the quarter, or 12 percent of total product revenue, and was up four percent sequentially from the prior quarter. A comparison to past reporting practices is available in the accompanying financial data.


Non-GAAP operating income for the fiscal first quarter of 2013 was $7.4 million, compared to a non-GAAP operating loss of $2.0 million in the prior fiscal quarter. This included the benefit of the $6 million non-core intellectual property sale. GAAP operating income for the fiscal first quarter of 2013 was $2.5 million, compared to a GAAP operating loss of $6.1 million in the prior fiscal quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal first quarter of 2013 was $6.2 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.07 per share, in the prior quarter. GAAP net income in the fiscal first quarter of 2013 was $1.1 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $6.1 million, or $0.15 per share, in the prior quarter. Excluding the $6.0 million non-core intellectual property sale, non-GAAP operating income was $1.4 million and non-GAAP net income was $180,000.

Non-GAAP results exclude stock-based compensation and related payroll costs, restructuring charges, amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense on convertible senior notes and asset impairment, among other items. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures are included in the accompanying financial data.

"I'm pleased to report that we reached the important milestone of operating profitability," commented Raouf Y. Halim, Mindspeed's chief executive officer. "As we transition to higher growth markets in high-performance analog solutions, communications processors and small cell wireless infrastructure, including the current ramp in 4G/LTE deployments, we have built a solid foundation for continued future profitable growth."

Outlook

Mindspeed forecasts total net product revenue in the fiscal second quarter of 2013 to be approximately flat to up or down 2% versus total net product revenue in the fiscal first quarter of 2013. The company expects fiscal second quarter of 2013 non-GAAP gross margin to be between 60-61 percent and anticipates non-GAAP operating expenses to be approximately $22 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP Measures

We provide non-GAAP measures as a supplement to financial results based on GAAP. A detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is set forth below under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to GAAP Measures." Investors are encouraged to review the accompanying press release reconciliations. We believe the presentation of non-GAAP measures provides investors with additional insight into underlying operating results and prospects for the future by excluding asset impairments, stock-based compensation and related payroll costs, profit in acquired inventory, amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-recurring legal and settlement costs, employee separation costs, acquisition-related costs, integration costs, revaluation of contingent consideration, restructuring charges and/or non-cash interest expense on our convertible senior notes. We have historically reported similar financial measures and believe that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in our financial reporting.

We also discuss certain non-GAAP measures excluding patent sales as a supplement to financial results based on GAAP. The sale of patents in the fiscal first quarter of 2013 impacted our net revenue, gross margin, operating income and net income. Information needed to reconcile our non-GAAP financial measures excluding the impact of patent sales is provided within the text of our earnings release. Non-GAAP net income is also referred to in this earnings release as net profitability.

We use non-GAAP gross margin, research and development expenses, selling, general and administrative expenses, operating expenses, operating income, other expense, net, net income and net income per share internally to evaluate our operating performance and to determine certain components of management compensation. In addition, we use these non-GAAP measures for internal budgets and forecasts. We believe that these non-GAAP measures can be useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

We exclude stock-based compensation and related payroll costs and non-cash interest expense on our convertible senior notes from non-GAAP measures because we believe that excluding these costs can enhance the understanding of our performance. We exclude profit in acquired inventory to facilitate comparability of gross profit between periods and to better reflect continuing operations of the acquired company. We exclude asset impairments, employee separation costs, non-recurring legal and settlement costs, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, and integration costs because they include significant discrete items that may not be indicative of our ongoing operations or economic performance.

We do not provide forward-looking GAAP measures or a reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures because of our inability to project restructuring charges, employee separation costs and stock-based compensation and related payroll costs.

The non-GAAP financial measures we provide have certain limitations because they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operation of our business as determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We endeavor to compensate for the limitations of these non-GAAP measures by providing GAAP financial statements, descriptions of the reconciling items and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures so that investors can appropriately incorporate the non-GAAP measures and their limitations into their analyses. For complete information on asset impairments, stock-based compensation and related payroll costs, profit in acquired inventory, amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-recurring legal and settlement costs, employee separation costs, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, integration costs, revaluation of contingent consideration and non-cash interest expense on our convertible senior notes, please see our financial statements and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition" that will be included in the periodic report we expect to file with the SEC with respect to the financial periods discussed herein.
