Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 GAAP Results

Total revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $8.5 million. This compares with revenue of $7.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, and $8.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Gross margin was 59 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with 59 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, and 57 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

With the exception of the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the third quarter of fiscal 2014 represents the best GAAP bottom line performance in the Company’s history.

Cash and cash equivalents as of September 28, 2014 were $18.1 million, and the Company had no debt outstanding. This compares with cash and cash equivalents of $18.5 million, at June 29, 2014.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Non-GAAP Results1

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.7 million, the highest ever in the Company’s history, resulting in earnings of $0.02 per diluted share. The third quarter non-GAAP net income excludes approximately $1.1 million in stock-based compensation, $36,000 in restructuring, a $0.1 million loss on the unconsolidated affiliate, BrPhotonics, and $0.2 million in amortization of intangible assets. This compares with a non-GAAP net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.03) per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 and non-GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 61 percent, compared with 62 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 and 59 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $1.4 million, the highest ever in the Company’s history. This compares with Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, and Adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

“Our record non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA, and improving GAAP results, in the third quarter validate that the actions we have taken over the last 24 months to drive revenue growth, reduce and control expenses, and improve shareholder value are delivering tangible results,” said Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GigOptix, Inc. “In particular, in Q3 our telecom-related revenue grew almost 50 percent from the second quarter, driven by the initial sales of our telecom 100Gbps coherent linear products, and continuous solid shipments of our 40Gbps datacom product, which grew about 80 percent year-over-year. We expect sales of these product families will continue to increase as we ramp capacity over the next year. In addition, Industrial, or ASIC, revenue was up nearly 30 percent from the second quarter reflecting a stable product line, which is influenced by the increased demand as the industry continues to move to new geometries.”

As previously disclosed, on August 19, 2014 GigOptix announced a proposal to acquire GSI Technology (Nasdaq: GSIT) for a per share consideration of $6.50. GigOptix is still awaiting GSI Technology’s board of director’s willingness to engage with GigOptix in a discussion of the merits of this proposal.

Financial Outlook

“We produced record setting results in the third quarter due primarily to our third straight quarter of revenue growth and improving non-GAAP gross margin performance,” said Curt Sacks, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of GigOptix, Inc. “As we continue to see solid demand for our key products we believe our fourth quarter revenue will be in the range of $8.5 million to $8.8 million.”
