QuickLogic Announces Fiscal 2006 and Fourth Quarter Results - New Products Contribute 20% of 2006 Revenue

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 31, 2007— QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the lowest power programmable logic leader, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2006.

Revenue for 2006 was $34.9 million, down 28 percent from $48.3 million in 2005. The change in revenue was primarily due to the Company's pASIC(R) 1 and pASIC 2 end-of-life program, which was partially offset by revenue growth from new products. These new products - Eclipse(TM) II, QuickPCI(R) II, PolarPro(TM) and QuickMIPS - contributed 20 percent of revenue in 2006, compared with four percent of revenue in 2005.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the 2006 net loss was $9.2 million, or $0.32 per share, compared with net income of $2.4 million, or $.08 per diluted share, in 2005. On a non-GAAP basis, the 2006 net loss was $7.7 million, or $0.27 per share, compared with net income of $3.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in 2005.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $7.7 million, compared with $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2005 and $8.6 million in the third quarter of 2006. New products contributed 18 percent of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2006, compared with 12 percent of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2005 and 27 percent of revenue in the third quarter of 2006. For the first time, Aeroflex Incorporated reported royalty revenue to the Company, based on the sale of Aeroflex products which utilize QuickLogic's ViaLink(R) technology. Royalties contributed nine percent of fourth quarter revenue.

Under GAAP, the net loss for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $3.3 million, or $0.12 per share. This compares with a net loss of $456,000, or $0.02 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2005 and with a net loss of $3.0 million, or $0.10 per share, in the third quarter of 2006.

On a non-GAAP basis, the net loss for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $3.0 million, or $0.11 per share, compared with a net loss of $456,000, or $0.02 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2005 and with a net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.09 per share, in the third quarter of 2006.

QuickLogic reports net income, or loss, in accordance with GAAP and also on a non-GAAP basis to highlight infrequent or non-recurring charges. Non-GAAP results, where applicable, exclude stock-based compensation recorded in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 123(R), "Share-based Payment," the write-off of long-lived assets and write-downs of the Company's investment in Tower Semiconductor Ltd.

"In the short term, our new product revenue is fluctuating with the demand of a few customers," said E. Thomas Hart, chairman, president and CEO. "However, there continues to be strong interest in our low-power solutions, coupled with higher activity with Marvell Semiconductor, our embedded processor partner. We are focused on turning this interest into a significant customer base. We fully expect to expand our new product customer base this year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

QuickLogic reports financial information in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (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, the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets and write-downs of the Company's investment in Tower Semiconductor Ltd. in calculating non-GAAP (i) income (loss) from operations, (ii) net income (loss), (iii) net income (loss) per share, (iv) cost of revenue, and (v) certain operating expenses, including research and development and selling, general and administrative. 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. Investors should note, however, that the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies. The Company 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 GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) to non-GAAP net income (loss) is included in the financial statements portion of this release. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
