For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2005 net sales were $108.3 million, an increase of 18% compared to net sales of $91.4 million in fiscal year 2004. The net loss for fiscal year 2005 was $31.2 million, or $0.92 per share, compared with a net loss of $43.1 million, or $1.33 per share, in the prior year.
As of December 31, 2005, cash and short and long-term marketable securities totaled $86.4 million compared with $87.2 million at the end of the third quarter 2005, a reduction of $0.8 million.
"We improved our gross margin to 26.5% of net sales or approximately 400 basis points over the prior quarter, and significantly reduced our loss per share in the fourth quarter and for fiscal year 2005," said Tom Shields, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of ANADIGICS. "We expect financial leverage resulting from both a margin enriched product mix as well as anticipated improved fab utilization to further improve our operating performance in 2006."
"I am extremely pleased with the considerable financial progress achieved in the fourth quarter 2005, which I believe represents an inflection point in our business," said Dr. Bami Bastani, President and Chief Executive Officer of ANADIGICS. "I expect our market share expansion in GSM/GPRS, EDGE and 3G WEDGE wireless handsets and 3G embedded applications coupled with continued growth and the strong position of our broadband products in the WLAN, integrated tuner IC, and CATV infrastructure markets, to further enhance our market leadership and results of operations in 2006."

We expect our net loss in the first quarter of 2006 to be $0.12 to $0.14 per share, which includes an estimated non-cash share-based compensation expense of $0.04 per share. Non-cash share-based compensation expense in the prior quarter and year ago quarter were approximately $0.02 per share.
