Management Commentary

“During the fourth quarter, we significantly strengthened our cash position through the $35 million sale of a portion of our memory technology patent portfolio. We are very pleased to have completed this transaction, which provides us with ample funding to advance the development of our Bandwidth Engine IC business,” said Len Perham, MoSys’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are now well positioned to focus on executing our strategy to become an IP-rich fabless semiconductor company.

“In addition to the patent sale, fourth quarter financial results reflected a strong increase in revenue driven by completion of milestones on IP licensing projects, as well as ongoing royalty revenue. In the coming quarters, our primary focus will be to drive demand and achieve additional design wins for our Bandwidth Engine IC family.
