Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Non-GAAP Results1

Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, and excludes approximately $1.1 million in stock-based compensation, $0.3 million in restructuring, $0.3 million in compensation expense related to the startup of BrPhotonics, a $0.3 million loss on the unconsolidated affiliate, BrPhotonics, and $0.2 million in amortization of intangible assets. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and a non-GAAP net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.02) per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 59 percent, compared with 65 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 60 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $1.0 million. This compares with Adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, and Adjusted EBITDA of $47,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

“Our second quarter financial performance, which included strong revenue growth and a return to non-GAAP profitability, further validates our long-term business plan to develop first mover advantage within the emerging high-speed communications markets. As we move into the second half of fiscal 2014, we will continue to focus primarily on the datacom, wireless point-to-point backhaul radios for the LTE infrastructure small-cells, and high-speed links for the consumer markets that offer the largest TAM and highest projected growth rates,” said Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GigOptix, Inc. “For the first time in the Company’s history our datacom related revenue was higher than telecom related revenue, and we believe this trend will continue. In addition, when you add together the two fastest growing markets we serve, datacom and the point-to-point wireless backhaul areas, they accounted for 45 percent of our total revenue in the second quarter, up from 28 percent in the same quarter last year.

“In June, we announced the acquisition of Tahoe RF Semiconductor, which became effective on the first day of our third quarter. The purchase adds leading-edge RF/analog RFIC technology to our expanding product portfolio. It is also consistent with our previously stated objective of adding engineering assets to enhance revenue generating products. This acquisition brought to GigOptix a meaningful CMOS and SiGe RF device IP library for emerging and high-volume applications, such as wide-frequency point-to-point wireless backhaul, including 60GHz V-Band to augment our existing 70-90GHz E-Band technology. In addition, we gained GPS-GNSS, low-power and low-noise transmitters and amplifiers, and specific consumer electronics and automotive systems. These capabilities have already been incorporated to the Company’s working plans and business development active engagements,” said Dr. Katz. “We currently believe that these new opportunities should be a catalyst for revenue growth starting in fiscal 2015. When combined with the previously announced inception of the BrPhotonics joint venture, which is meeting our early expectations, along with the growth trends we see in our business, we are confident that by expanding our addressable markets we will continue to improve our higher-margin revenue growth and enhance profitability for the benefit of our shareholders.

“As part of our ongoing efforts to improve operational efficiencies, effective today we are implementing an enterprise-wide change in our organizational structure. We will now operate under a functional structure rather than the product line structure we have used for several years. The need for change became more apparent in recent months, more so after the recent acquisition and consolidation of TahoeRF, as we diversified our revenue mix by expanding into parallel markets, such as new RF applications in the wireless and consumer markets,” said Dr. Katz. “In support of these efforts, the Board of Directors has promoted Dr. Raluca Dinu to Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. Ms. Dinu has been a key member of our executive team since 2008, most recently serving as GigOptix’s Vice President and General Manager of the High Speed Communications Product Line. Her strong technical background in the industries we serve, and long-time relationships with our current and targeted customers, will play a vital role as we expand our revenue channels. We have also assigned Mr. Anil Chaudhry to the newly created position of Vice President of Government Affairs and Strategic Accounts. Mr. Chaudhry has been an important part of our executive team since 2010, serving as GigOptix’s Vice President and General Manager of the Industrial Product Line. Anil’s lengthy service in the semiconductor industry makes him an ideal person to lead this group and grow our businesses and revenues through these crucial venues.”

Financial Outlook

“With continued strong demand in our product lines, we believe third quarter revenue should increase and be in the range of $8.2 million to $8.4 million, or up approximately 12 percent to 15 percent above the third quarter a year ago,” said Curt Sacks, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of GigOptix, Inc. “In addition, based on our third quarter forecast, and continued confidence in our business over the remainder of the year, particularly in our datacom and wireless lines, we are increasing our revenue outlook in fiscal 2014. We now expect annual revenue to grow up to 12 percent above fiscal 2013. This compares with the prior guidance range of up to 10 percent growth we provided earlier in the year.”
