Sequential Revenue Growth of 37%
Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 was $16.4 million, an increase of 5 percent compared to $15.5 million for the same quarter a year ago. Royalties were $8.9 million, an increase of 18 percent compared to $7.6 million in the same quarter a year ago. Contract revenue was $7.4 million, a decrease of 6 percent compared to $7.9 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2005. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 on a generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") basis was $2.4 million compared to a net income of $3.5 million for the same quarter a year ago. GAAP net income per share on a diluted basis for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 was $0.05 compared to a net income per share of $0.08 for the same quarter a year ago.
Beginning in the September 2005 quarter, the Company recognized equity- based compensation expense pursuant to the fair value method under SFAS 123R. This expense for the second quarter ending December 31, 2005 was $2.1 million. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2006, which excludes the effect of the stock option expense was $4.3 million or $0.10 per diluted share compared to net income of $3.5 million or $0.08 per share for the same quarter a year ago. A reconciliation of non-GAAP adjustments is summarized in the tables below.
"We are pleased with our second quarter results and the return to more normal levels of licensing activity," said Merv Kato, chief financial officer of MIPS Technologies. "Agreements signed this quarter indicate that our solutions are compelling for a wide range of applications the world over. This same growth trend was exhibited in our royalty stream as licensees continue to deliver numerous MIPS-based products to the consumer and networking markets."
"This quarter's solid growth in both licensing activities and royalty revenue reflect both the compelling nature of our product line, as well as the robust design activity of our licensees," said John Bourgoin, president and CEO of MIPS Technologies. "We are particularly pleased that a significant portion of our license revenue came from new technology products, indicating that our superior value proposition is well-recognized. Our royalties in the markets other than video games reached record levels, indicating ongoing and broad based growth in the production of MIPS-based products worldwide."
