SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GIG), a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable end-to-end high speed information streaming over the network, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, which ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 GAAP Results

Total revenue increased 20 percent to $10.1 million from $8.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, and increased 5 percent from $9.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Gross margin was 52 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. This compares with 56 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and 53 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Net loss was $1.5 million, or a net loss of $0.07 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. This compares with a net loss of $3.1 million, or a net loss of $0.14 per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, and net loss of $1.6 million, or a net loss of $0.08 per share, in the second quarter of 2012.

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2012, were $12.3 million.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis1, which excludes $253,000 in amortization of intangible assets, $1.2 million in stock-based compensation and $576,000 in special litigation-related expenses, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $563,000, or $0.02 per diluted share. This compares with a non-GAAP net loss of $712,000 or $0.03 per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, and net income of $385,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Gross margin was 54 percent, compared with 60 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and 54 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2012 was positive $1.3 million. This compares with Adjusted EBITDA of $289,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, and Adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

"The strong third quarter financial results, which included record quarterly revenue, continuing improvement in non-GAAP earnings and Adjusted EBITDA, and most importantly generating positive cashflow from operations, reflect our continued growth in several key areas of our business," said Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GigOptix, Inc. "Leading the sequential gains was the ongoing growth in our optics product line, particularly with our high speed 100Gbps and optical interconnect offerings. We also experienced a nice uptick in our RF/MMIC business over the prior quarter due to an increase in market interest for our recently introduced E-band offering."

Litigation against M/A-Com Technology Solutions, Inc. (Optomai, Inc.)

GigOptix continues to actively prosecute the lawsuit for misappropriation of confidential information and trade secrets against its former employees, Optomai, Inc., and the parent of Optomai, M/A-COM Technology Solutions, Inc. GigOptix has been engaged in discovery, including forensic work, which has produced substantial evidence that the individuals copied GigOptix files when they left and then used to develop products of the corporate defendants. GigOptix is continuing to move the case towards a trial on its claims against the defendants.

"We are confident that we have evidence supporting our claim for misappropriation of trade secrets and look forward to putting the evidence regarding the conduct and actions of the defendants before a jury and judge in 'an adjudication of the merits' at trial. A trial date has not been set and we have no estimate as of today when the Court will set a trial date," added Dr. Katz.

Financial Outlook

"Through the first nine months of fiscal 2012 we made good progress on our yearly business and product initiatives. While we are very satisfied with our market penetration and customer's adoption of new products, there is a higher level of uncertainty in the macroeconomic environment, increasing lack of visibility, and exceptionally short lead-times, mainly in the high speed optical communications markets, than what we have seen in previous quarters," said Mr. Curt Sacks, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of GigOptix. "Therefore, we currently believe our revenue in the fourth quarter will be roughly in-line with the third quarter as there are enough data-points in the market that require us to be cautious with our near-term outlook."
