QuickLogic CEO Discusses Q3 2010 Results – Earnings Call Transcript

I’ll rejoin you in a few minutes to discuss our guidance for the fourth quarter, but first Tom will update you on the status of our strategic efforts. Tom?

Thomas Hart

Yeah. Thanks, Ralph. Well, by every measure, it’s been a year of tremendous progress here at QuickLogic. Q3 2010 total revenue was up 13% sequentially and 120% year-over-year. With this growth, we’ve returned to GAAP profitability, positive cash flow and exited the quarter with 19.2 million in cash.

I’ll cover this progress in a few minutes, but first, let’s take time to evaluate our near term industry events are impacting QuickLogic.

As you’ve undoubtedly heard from many semiconductor companies that have already reported calendar Q3 results, short-term visibility has been reduced and in many cases, there is some degree if inventory rebalancing expected to occur during Q4. Because we’ve been able to maintain short and dependable lead times for our legacy products throughout 2010, we’re not anticipating any material impact from inventory rebalancing. Even though Q4 is normally a seasonally soft quarter for the industry sectors we serve with our legacy products, we expect sales for these products to be flat to Q3. We’re also forecasting flat new product revenue in Q4.
