(NYSE:MXL), a provider of integrated, radio-frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.
"We are pleased to announce that in the fourth quarter, we realized near-record revenue of $31.6 million, which represents solid growth of 27 percent year-over-year in a quarter in which we typically experience seasonality. These results successfully bring to conclusion a year in which we delivered annual growth in revenue, and positive cash flow from operations of 22 percent and 71 percent, respectively," commented Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO. "Our revenue growth in 2013 reflected continued momentum in Cable across both DOCSIS 3.0 modem and Media-Server gateway applications along with a return to year-on-year growth of our terrestrial revenues driven by share gains in hybrid television. Furthermore, in 2013, we gained early evidence of potential gains in the Satellite TV market from the successful launch of a broad family of technology leading solutions, and the realization of our first Satellite TV revenues. We believe that Satellite TV applications represent an exciting new addressable market growth opportunity for MaxLinear."Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $31.6 million, a decrease of 1 percent compared to the third quarter of 2013, and an increase of 27 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.
