2011 Fourth-Quarter Financial Highlights
  • Total revenue was $17.0 million, compared to $22.0 million for the third quarter of 2011
  • The sequential decline in fourth-quarter revenue reflects the fulfillment of the remaining backlog that resulted from the company’s recent supply constraints and the transition to more typical product shipment patterns

  • Product gross margin increased to 53%, compared to a margin of 51% in the third quarter of 2011
  • Product gross margin expanded due to a combination of a favorable mix of products, continuing yield improvements, and lower test costs
  • Depreciation expense increased by $419,000, compared to the third quarter of 2011, as the company began to depreciate equipment on its IBM manufacturing line

2011 Fourth-Quarter Corporate and Product Highlights
  • Announced the appointment of Scott Emley as vice president of marketing. Mr. Emley joined Ramtron from Texas Instruments, where he was director of marketing for ARM® microprocessor, DSP, and Multi-core products.
