QuickLogic Announces Fiscal 2007 Second Quarter Results - Revenue Climbs 35% Sequentially

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 25, 2007— QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the lowest power programmable solutions leader, today announced the financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended July 1, 2007.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2007 was $8.4 million, up 35 percent from $6.2 million in the first quarter of 2007 and down nine percent from $9.2 million in the second quarter of 2006. The sequential growth in revenue was broadly based across our new product, mature product and end-of-life product families. The year-on-year decline in revenue was due to lower new product revenue. The decline in new product revenue was due to lower revenue from one customer, whose revenue in the second quarter of 2007 was in line with our expectations. New products - PolarPro(TM), ArcticLink(TM), Eclipse(TM) II, QuickPCI(R) II and QuickMIPS - contributed 14 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2007 and the first quarter of 2007, and 25 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2006.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the net loss for the second quarter of 2007 was $2.1 million, or $0.07 per share, compared with a net loss of $5.9 million, or $0.20 per share, in the first quarter of 2007 and a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.06 per share, in the second quarter of 2006. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2007 was $1.7 million, or $0.06 per share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $5.5 million, or $0.19 per share, in the first quarter of 2007 and a non-GAAP net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.05 per share, in the second quarter of 2006.

QuickLogic reports certain financial measures, including net 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" and the write-off of long-lived assets. For a full reconciliation of GAAP net loss to non-GAAP net loss, please refer to the schedule on page 5 of this press release.

"We are pleased with our significant increase in revenue compared with the first quarter," said E. Thomas Hart, chairman, president and CEO. "We are seeing good design traction for our Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs) with top customers in our target markets. The trend for these customers is to design platforms that enable them to build multiple products. The inherent flexibility of CSSPs serves well to "future-proof" these platforms, extending their life over several product generations. This allows our customers to bring new products to market more quickly and cost effectively with lower risk."

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 and the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets in calculating non-GAAP (i) income (loss) from operations, (ii) net income (loss), (iii) net income (loss) per share, and (iv) gross margin percentage. For a full reconciliation of these GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures, please refer to the schedule on page 5 of this press release. 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 the basis for the allocation of Company resources, management of operations and the measurement of profit-dependent cash 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 GAAP. A reconciliation of 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 GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Safe Harbor Statement Under The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release contains forward-looking statements made by our CEO relating to design activity of our new products and the revenue generating potential of such new products, which is dependent on the market acceptance of our products and the level of customer orders. Actual results could differ materially from any such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include 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; changes in product demand or supply; capacity constraints; and general economic conditions. These factors and others are described in more detail in the Company's public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the risks discussed in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in the Company's prior press releases.
