"In the second quarter we achieved our second consecutive quarter of non-GAAP profitability while maintaining record non-GAAP gross margin in spite of the continued challenging conditions we faced in several of our served markets," said Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GigOptix, Inc. "We continued to make important progress during the second quarter with the joint development programs (JDP) we have with major Tier-1 OEMs, with JDP revenue again exceeding $1 million in the quarter. We are on track to deliver customized reference design platforms for next generation telecom products, customized trans-impedance amplifiers (TIA) and drivers, and applications for the consumer electronics market, including key components to be used in gesture recognition devices. As we have previously discussed, these JDP contracts are important to our long-term growth as they support deployment of production parts towards the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014.

"While market conditions have been tough for an extended period, I am increasingly optimistic that revenue in the second half of 2013 will be higher than the first half. My confidence is supported by what appears to be a gradual improvement in our telecom business, primarily in the fast growing 100 gigabit segment where we command a roughly 50% share of the 100Gbps coherent driver market, which is being led by the introduction of our next generation TIAs and drivers. In addition, we see continued improvement in the datacom market where we have established a market leadership in optical engines for Active Optical Cables," said Dr. Katz. "In our Industrial business, we are confident that revenue should increase later in 2013 as design wins with new products go into production.

"Now that we are seeing the beginning of a recovery in the telecom market, along with improvement in other parts of our business, our board of directors believes that this is the right time to reinstate the compensation and benefits for the Company's employees to the levels they were at prior to the across the board reductions implemented early this year in response to the challenging times. It is important that we restore these previous reductions and recognize our employees for their hard work after a difficult period. We want to personally thank all of the GigOptix team for their shared sacrifice in helping support the Company's cash position and to get us back to profitability in such a short period of time," said Dr. Katz.

"As we prepare to head to trial on August 26, 2013, in our lawsuit against defendants M/A-COM Technology Solutions, Inc. (MACOM), MACOM's subsidiary Optomai, Inc., and three former GigOptix employees, we are continuing to incur expenses in support of this lawsuit. We believe that this investment in the litigation is warranted by the evidence which we have obtained through the forensic and other discovery which we have conducted, as well as the process to date in the judicial system. Most recently, this past week, the Superior Court of Santa Clara County, California after considering the evidentiary record denied motions filed by the defendants to stay the lawsuit, which followed a ruling last month against the defendants preserving our right to bring to trial all of our claims against the defendants," said Dr. Katz. "More information regarding these motions, including certain of the evidence considered by the Superior Court, can be seen in the Superior Court's records."

Financial Outlook

"With a better outlook in our 100Gbps telecom business, continued strength in the datacom market, and ramp of new products into both existing and new markets later this year, we believe revenue in the third quarter will be up approximately 5 percent from the second quarter," said Curt Sacks, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of GigOptix, Inc. "Based on our current expectations, we believe that revenue will continue to grow in the fourth quarter."
