Expects first quarter 2007 net sales to be unaffected by typical seasonality; guides equal to up 3% sequentially
Net loss calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP") for the fourth quarter was $0.1 million, or $0.00 per share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.03 per share, in the prior quarter, and a GAAP net loss of $3.9 million, or $0.11 per share, in the year ago quarter. Pro forma income for the fourth quarter, which excludes non-cash stock compensation expense, was $2.8 million, or $0.06 per share.
Reported full-year 2006 net sales were $169.9 million, an increase of 57% compared with net sales of $108.3 million for full-year 2005. Full-year 2006 GAAP net loss was $8.9 million, or $0.20 per share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $31.2 million, or $0.92 per share in the year-ago period. Full-year 2006 Pro forma loss, which excludes non-cash stock compensation expense, was $0.5 million or $0.01 per share.
"ANADIGICS achieved another important milestone as the Company delivered its seventh consecutive quarter of net sales growth and posted pro forma profitability ahead of the Street " said Dr. Bami Bastani, President and Chief Executive Officer of ANADIGICS. " We believe that the company is positioned to capitalize on the rapidly-growing voice, data and video segments of the wireless and broadband communications markets, where we offer 3G/3.5G products that use the W-CDMA, the HSDPA, HSUPA & EDGE standards, 4G products for WiMAX and WiBRO systems, WiFi products that use the 802.11 a/b/g and 802.11 n (draft-n, MIMO) standards, CATV set-top box and infrastructure and FTTP products."
As of December 31, 2006, cash and short and long-term marketable securities totaled $83.5 million compared with $130.5 million as of September 30, 2006. The reduction of $47.0 million resulted from the repayment in full of the company's $46.7 million of convertible notes which matured on November 15, 2006.
"The financial accomplishments demonstrated during 2006 were important achievements for ANADIGICS," said Tom Shields, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "Our effectiveness in significantly improving our financial results year-over-year is an acknowledgment of the company's leverage and commitment to our shareholders."
This press release includes financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP, consisting of non-GAAP, or pro forma, net income or loss and non- GAAP, or pro forma, income or loss per share. Management uses non-GAAP net income or loss and non-GAAP income or loss per share to evaluate the company's operating and financial performance in light of business objectives and for planning purposes. ANADIGICS believes that these measures are useful to investors because they enhance investors' ability to review the company's business from the same perspective as the company's management and facilitate comparisons of this period's results with prior periods. These non-GAAP measures exclude charges related to equity-based compensation. These financial measures are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for net loss or loss per share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of reported net loss and reported loss per share to non-GAAP net income or loss and non- GAAP income or loss per share, respectively, are included at the end of this press release.
Outlook for the First Quarter 2007
Net sales for the first quarter of 2007 are expected to be unaffected by the typical industry seasonality and are estimated to be equal to up approximately 3% sequentially. Net sales within this expected range would represent a 38% to 42% increase over first quarter 2006. Net loss per share on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2007 is expected to approximate $0.01. However, on a pro forma basis, we expect to generate net income of approximately $0.06 per share.
The statements regarding outlook are forward looking and actual results may differ materially. Please see safe harbor statement at the end of the press release.
