Applied Micro Circuits Corporation Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results13:12 EST Wednesday, January 30, 2013SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Nasdaq:AMCC) ("AppliedMicro" or the "Company") today reported its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012. Q3 FY2013 net revenues were $51.7 million, up approximately 12% sequentially and down approximately 8% year over year.   Q3 FY2013 non-GAAP EPS was $(0.10) per share on net loss of $6.9 million, compared to $(0.16) per share on a net loss of $10.5 million, for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.   Q3 FY2013 GAAP net loss was $71.6 million or $(1.08) per share compared to net loss of $21.6 million or $(0.33) per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.   Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was approximately $84 million as of December 31, 2012 compared to $90 million as of September 30, 2012.   During the quarter, the Company taped out its ARM 64-bit X-Gene processor chip in 40nm. In mid-January 2013, the Company also taped-out a 28nm test chip version of the X-Gene chip which incorporated several other features in addition to the geometry shrink.   The performance simulations of AppliedMicro's ARM 64-Bit X-Gene processor have significantly exceeded the Company's expectations and resulted in an increase in the range of its estimated milestone-based payments under the Veloce merger agreement. The purchase price is now estimated to be in the range of $117 to $178.5 million, depending upon the achievement of multiple product development cycles and technical performance results. Net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were $51.7 million compared to $46.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, representing a sequential quarterly increase of 11.6% and a decrease of 8.3% over the $56.3 million in net revenues reported in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Net revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were $139.3 million, compared to $182.1 million for the same period last year, representing a decrease of 23.5%. The net loss on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis for the third quarter and for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were $71.6 million and $116.5 million, or $(1.08) and $(1.81) per share, respectively. This included an accrual of $51.9 million for the Veloce acquisition in the quarter. This compares with a GAAP net loss of $7.1 million, or $(0.12) per share, and net loss of $15.1 million, or $(0.24) per share, for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2012, respectively. Non-GAAP loss for the third quarter and the first nine months of fiscal 2013 was $6.9 million or $(0.10) per share and $28.9 million or $(0.45) per share, respectively, compared to non-GAAP loss of $1.1 million or $(0.02) per share and non-GAAP net income of $0.6 million or $0.01 per diluted share for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2012, respectively. "In the third quarter we believe we made giant strides in our product development efforts by taping out our 40nm ARM 64-Bit X-Gene server on a chip. We also taped out a test chip for our upcoming 28nm product in January. While we await final benchmarks from the actual silicon, the results from highly correlated simulations indicate that the 40nm chip performance may far exceed our original expectations. In fact, we believe the networking performance of the chip suggests that we may be able to further penetrate into Enterprise class solutions. I am also very pleased with the improvements in our base business, reflected in continued quarter over quarter revenue growth," said Dr. Paramesh Gopi, President and Chief Executive Officer. Bob Gargus, Chief Financial Officer commented, "While we are very excited with the milestones in our ARM 64-bit product strategy, we also had a very solid quarter Company-wide and beat expectations. We feel we are making great progress towards our goal of attaining break even on a non-GAAP basis for the March quarter." AppliedMicro reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP and also provides additional financial data that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP results and other financial measures reported by the Company exclude certain items that are required by GAAP, such as restructuring charges, amortization of purchased intangibles, Veloce Acquisition consideration, stock-based compensation charges, other-than-temporary impairment on investments, one-time acquisition related recoveries, sale of equipment and other assets, warrant expense, payroll taxes on certain stock option exercises and non-cash tax adjustments. Income taxes are adjusted to an estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate. These non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures and may not be consistent with the presentation used by other companies. The Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate and manage its operations. The Company is providing this information to allow investors to perform additional financial analysis and because it is consistent with the financial models and estimates published by analysts who follow the Company. The attached schedule reconciles non-GAAP results and other financial measures reported by the Company with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.  AppliedMicro management will be holding a conference call today, January 30, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time/5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss additional details regarding the Company's performance for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 and to provide guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. You may access the conference call via any of the following: Teleconference: 800-798-2884 Conference ID: 80437361 Web Broadcast: http://www.apm.com Replay: 888-286-8010 (access code: 98851945, available through February 6, 2013)AppliedMicro Overview Applied Micro Circuits Corporation is a global leader in computing and connectivity solutions for next-generation cloud infrastructure and data centers.
