QuickLogic Corporation Q1 2010 Earnings Call Transcript

QuickLogic’s future results could differ materially from the results described in these forward-looking statements. We refer you to the risk factors listed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and prior press releases for a description of these and other risk factors.

QuickLogic assumes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements. For your information, this conference call is open to all and is being webcast live.

For the first quarter of 2010, total revenue was $5.4 million. This represents a sequential increase of 27% and was at the high end of our guidance range. New product revenue was $2.1 million. This represents a modest sequential increase and was within our guidance range.

Due to the fact our new product revenue is generated by only a few customers during Q1 who were themselves launching new products, scheduling volatility was high and push-outs and pull-ins were not fully offsetting. As Tom will cover in a moment, we are forecasting a significant expansion in a number of our customers in production in Q2 and we believe this will improve the predictability of forecasting as well as the linearity of our anticipated forward growth.

Q1 legacy product revenue was $3.3 million. This represents a sequential increase of 50% and was above the high end of our guidance. We saw an increase in demand for our legacy products from multiple customers during the quarter.

Our non-GAAP gross profit margin for Q1 was 62%, which was above our guidance. The higher gross margin was driven by the higher-than-expected revenue on our legacy products as well as improved operating efficiency due to the higher revenue level.

Non-GAAP operating expenses for Q1 totaled $3.8 million. Expenses continue to be favorably influenced by the variable cost model implemented during 2008 and the cash conservation plan put in place during the second half of 2009, and continued into the first half of 2010. As I stated during our Q4 call, we continue to complement our internal fixed design capability with external resources that allow us to tap into the best design resources in the world and treat them as variable cost. As evidenced by the number of designs we have flowing [ph] under production and our design funnel activity, these resources have allowed us to quickly and efficiently engage a wide variety of opportunities with multiple customers.
