SUNNYVALE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 20, 2014 — Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), the innovative technology solutions company that brings invention to market, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

GAAP Financial Results:

Revenue for the third quarter of 2014 was $69.7 million, down 9% on a sequential basis from the second quarter of 2014 primarily due to a one-time catch-up payment from the new license agreement signed with Qualcomm during the second quarter of 2014 and lower royalty revenue from NVIDIA. As compared to the third quarter of 2013, revenue was down 5% primarily due to lower royalty revenue from Samsung and NVIDIA, offset by the license agreements signed with Qualcomm and Micron Technology.

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $224.5 million, which was up 13% over the prior year period, primarily due to the license agreements signed with SK hynix, Micron Technology, Nanya Technology Corporation and Qualcomm, partially offset by lower royalty revenue from Samsung.

Total operating costs and expenses for the third quarter of 2014 were $55.2 million, 2% lower than the previous quarter and 14% lower than the third quarter of 2013. Third quarter operating costs and expenses of $55.2 million included $3.4 million of stock-based compensation expenses and $6.7 million of amortization expenses. In comparison, total operating costs and expenses for the second quarter of 2014 of $56.4 million included $4.9 million of stock-based compensation expenses, $6.8 million of amortization expenses and $1.0 million of retention bonus expense from acquisitions. Total operating costs and expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $64.2 million, which included $3.4 million of stock-based compensation expenses, $8.1 million of impairment of goodwill, $1.1 million of restructuring charges, $7.4 million of amortization expenses and $1.5 million of retention bonus expense from acquisitions. The change in total operating costs and expenses in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the second quarter of 2014 was primarily due to decreased stock-based compensation expenses and retention bonus expense from acquisitions. The change in total operating costs and expenses in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the third quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to impairment of goodwill and restructuring charges in the third quarter of 2013 and lower retention bonus expense from acquisitions partially offset by higher cost of sales associated with the sale of lighting products and bonus expense.

Total operating costs and expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $166.8 million, 8% lower than the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The nine months operating costs and expenses of $166.8 million included $11.2 million of stock-based compensation expenses, $20.3 million of amortization expenses and $2.5 million of retention bonus expense from acquisitions. This is compared to total operating costs and expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 of $181.8 million, which included $11.9 million of stock-based compensation expenses, $8.1 million of impairment of goodwill, $3.3 million of restructuring charges, $8.5 million one-time reversal of accrued SK hynix related litigation costs, $21.4 million of amortization expenses and $8.9 million of retention bonus expense from acquisitions. The change in total operating costs and expenses was primarily attributable to impairment of goodwill and restructuring charges in 2013 and lower retention bonus expense from acquisitions, partially offset by higher cost of sales associated with the sale of lighting products and as a result of the one-time reversal of accrued SK hynix related litigation costs in the second quarter of 2013.

Net income for the third quarter of 2014 was $5.5 million as compared to net income of $5.0 million in the second quarter of 2014 and net loss of $5.7 million in the third quarter of 2013.
