SAN JOSE, Calif., May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK) ("QuickLogic" or the "Company"), a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI solutions, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, ended March 29, 2020.

Recent Highlights

Fiscal 2020 First Quarter Financial Results
Total revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $2.2 million, a decline of 25% compared with the fourth quarter of 2019, and 32% compared with the first quarter of 2019. New product revenue was $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2020, a decline of 32% compared with the fourth quarter of 2019, and 29% compared with the first quarter of 2019. This sequential decline was due to lower sales of display bridge, connectivity and mature products that were not fully offset by increased EOS S3 revenue. New product revenue accounted for 23% of the total revenue in the first quarter of 2020, compared with 25% in the fourth quarter of 2019, and 22% in the first quarter of 2019. Mature product revenue was $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2020, down 23% compared with the fourth quarter of 2019, and 33% compared with the first quarter of 2019.

First quarter 2020 GAAP gross margin was 51.7%, down from 64.9% in the fourth quarter of 2019, and 62.0% in the first quarter of 2019.

First quarter 2020 non-GAAP gross margin was 52.2%, down from 65.6% in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 62.8% in the first quarter of 2019. The lower gross margin in the first quarter 2020 was primarily due to product mix and some higher margin mature product revenue moving into Q2.

First quarter 2020 GAAP operating expenses were $4.2 million, down from $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and $5.7 million in the first quarter of 2019. The first quarter 2020 GAAP operating expenses include restructuring expenses of $0.5 million related to the restructuring plan implemented in the first quarter of 2020.

First quarter 2020 non-GAAP operating expenses were $4.1 million, down from $4.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and from $4.8 million compared with the first quarter of 2019.

First quarter 2020 GAAP net loss was $3.2 million, or $0.38 per share, compared with a net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.37 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2019, and a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.50 per share, in the first quarter of 2019.

First quarter 2020 non-GAAP net loss was $3.1 million, or $0.37 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.29 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2019, and a net loss of $2.5 million, or $0.37 per share, in the first quarter of 2019.

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.

For more information, visit www.quicklogic.com and https://www.quicklogic.com/blog/.

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 forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors including: delays in the market acceptance of the Company's new products; the ability to convert design opportunities into customer revenue; our ability to replace revenue from end-of-life products; the level and timing of customer design activity; the market acceptance of our customers' products; the risk that new orders may not result in future revenue; our ability to introduce and produce new products based on advanced wafer technology on a timely basis; our ability to adequately market the low power, competitive pricing and short time-to-market of our new products; intense competition, including the introduction of new products by competitors; our ability to hire and retain qualified personnel; our ability to capitalize on synergies with our newly acquired subsidiary SensiML Corporation; changes in product demand or supply; capacity constraints; general economic conditions; political events, international trade disputes, war, terrorism, natural disasters, public health issues, and other business interruptions that could disrupt supply or delivery of, or demand for, the Company's products; and changes in tax rates and exposure to additional tax liabilities. 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. In addition, please note that the date of this press release is May 11, 2020, and any forward-looking statements contained herein are based on assumptions that we believe to be reasonable as of this date.
