Virage Logic Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2009 Results

Although this news release will be available on the Company’s website, the Company disclaims any duty or intention to update these or any other forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

We believe the financial figures we include that are not presented in accordance with GAAP assist investors in understanding our business and operating results. This information is intended to provide investors with useful supplemental data regarding the underlying economics of our business operations because operating results presented under GAAP may include charges that are nonrecurring or not necessarily relevant to ongoing operations, or are difficult to forecast for future periods. The Company’s management evaluates and makes operating decisions about its business operations primarily based on revenue and the core costs of those business operations. Management believes that goodwill impairment charges, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, restructuring charges, acquisition-related charges and stock-based compensation are not part of its core business operations. Therefore, management presents non-GAAP financial measures, along with GAAP measures, in this earnings release by excluding these items from the period expenses. The income statement line items involved in the adjustment from GAAP to non-GAAP presentation in this earnings release are goodwill impairment charges, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, restructuring charges, acquisition-related charges, and stock-based compensation that are included in cost of revenues, research and development, general and administrative and sales and marketing expenses. To determine our non-GAAP tax provision, the Company recalculates tax based on non-GAAP income before taxes and adjusts accordingly.

For each such non-GAAP measure, the adjustment provides management with information about the Company’s underlying operating performance that enables a more meaningful comparison of our finance results in different reporting periods. For example, since the Company does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management excludes acquisition-related charges in order to provide a more consistent and meaningful evaluation of the Company’s operating expenses. Management also excludes goodwill impairment, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets and restructuring charges as these are non-recurring charges which are not expected to occur on a regular basis. Management also excludes the impact of stock-based compensation to help it compare current period operating expenses against the operating expenses for prior periods. In addition, the availability of non-GAAP information helps management track actual performance relative to financial targets. This information also helps investors compare the Company’s performance with other companies in the industry, which use similar financial measures to supplement their GAAP financial information.

Management recognizes that the use of these non-GAAP measures has limitations, including the fact that management must exercise judgment in determining which types of charges should be excluded from the non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that providing this non-GAAP financial information, in addition to GAAP information, facilitates consistent comparison of the Company’s financial performance over time. The Company has historically provided non-GAAP information to the investment community, not as an alternative but as an important supplement to GAAP information, to enable investors to evaluate the Company’s core operating performance in the way that management does.

Our non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be performance measures that should be regarded as alternatives to, or more meaningful than, our GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as they do not include all items of income and expense that affect our operations, and accordingly should always be considered as supplemental to our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.
