GigOptix Reports Record Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

Adjusted EBITDA 1 for the third quarter of 2012 was positive $1.3 million. This compares with Adjusted EBITDA of $289,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, and Adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

“The strong third quarter financial results, which included record quarterly revenue, continuing improvement in non-GAAP earnings and Adjusted EBITDA, and most importantly generating positive cashflow from operations, reflect our continued growth in several key areas of our business,” said Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GigOptix, Inc. “Leading the sequential gains was the ongoing growth in our optics product line, particularly with our high speed 100Gbps and optical interconnect offerings. We also experienced a nice uptick in our RF/MMIC business over the prior quarter due to an increase in market interest for our recently introduced E-band offering.”

Litigation against M/A-Com Technology Solutions, Inc. (Optomai, Inc.)

GigOptix continues to actively prosecute the lawsuit for misappropriation of confidential information and trade secrets against its former employees, Optomai, Inc., and the parent of Optomai, M/A-COM Technology Solutions, Inc. GigOptix has been engaged in discovery, including forensic work, which has produced substantial evidence that the individuals copied GigOptix files when they left and then used to develop products of the corporate defendants. GigOptix is continuing to move the case towards a trial on its claims against the defendants.

“We are confident that we have evidence supporting our claim for misappropriation of trade secrets and look forward to putting the evidence regarding the conduct and actions of the defendants before a jury and judge in ‘an adjudication of the merits’ at trial. A trial date has not been set and we have no estimate as of today when the Court will set a trial date,” added Dr. Katz.

Financial Outlook

“Through the first nine months of fiscal 2012 we made good progress on our yearly business and product initiatives. While we are very satisfied with our market penetration and customer’s adoption of new products, there is a higher level of uncertainty in the macroeconomic environment, increasing lack of visibility, and exceptionally short lead-times, mainly in the high speed optical communications markets, than what we have seen in previous quarters,” said Mr. Curt Sacks, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of GigOptix. “Therefore, we currently believe our revenue in the fourth quarter will be roughly in-line with the third quarter as there are enough data-points in the market that require us to be cautious with our near-term outlook.”
