SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 1, 2015 — MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.
First Quarter and Recent Highlights
- Achieved another quarter of double-digit design wins;
- Secured new Bandwidth Engine® design wins with existing Tier-One customer;
- Completed underwritten public offering of common stock for net proceeds of $21.4 million; and
- Ended the quarter with total cash and investments of $40.7 million.
"Building upon the design win momentum generated last quarter, we achieved another quarter of double-digit design win activity, putting us on track to achieve our goal of doubling design wins again in 2015," commented Len Perham, president and CEO of MoSys. "Most of our design wins in the quarter were for our Bandwidth Engine products and reflect, in some cases, additional market penetration with existing customers. In several instances, these customers are now re-using the Bandwidth Engine architecture as a building block for new systems or line card applications to achieve higher aggregate data rates or new features. We also have multiple active design engagements with customers for our LineSpeed™ products, particularly our newest product, the LineSpeed 100G Low Power Retimer, targeting high data-rate, low-power, smart optical module applications.
"In addition, we continued to make progress on our product development roadmap, especially with our new Bandwidth Engine 3 product family, which we expect to bring to market in the second half of the year. We remain on track with the development schedules of our early Bandwidth Engine 3 alpha customers and our NPU partner, EZchip, and continue to work closely with our FPGA partners, Altera and Xilinx."
Mr. Perham concluded, "Overall, customer interest and sales activity for both the Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed product families remain very robust, setting the stage for additional design wins in the coming quarters. We remain focused on doubling design wins again this year, bringing additional products to market, and expanding our served available market and customer base, while remaining well positioned to support our customers' production ramps."
