NetLogic Microsystems Announces Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETL), a worldwide leader in high performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $106.8 million, a 3.0% sequential increase from $103.7 million for the second quarter of 2011 and a 6.8% increase from $100.1 million for the third quarter of 2010.

Third quarter 2011 net income, determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was $7.2 million or $0.10 per diluted share. By comparison, GAAP net income was $5.2 million or $0.08 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010. GAAP net income for third quarter 2011 included stock-based compensation and related payroll taxes, changes in contingent earn-out liability, amortization of intangible assets, and acquisition-related costs. Excluding these items, non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $35.5 million or $0.47 per diluted share, compared with $0.40 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010.

Management Qualitative Comments

“This was another positive quarter for NetLogic Microsystems,” said Ron Jankov, president and CEO. “In addition to solid financial results, during the third quarter we marked another significant milestone in our roadmap with the announcement of the XLP®II processor, the industry’s most advanced multi-core processor leveraging the advanced 28 nanometer process node. This ground-breaking new processor demonstrates our continued commitment to technology leadership and further highlights the tremendous execution capability and expertise of our team.”

Recent Operating Highlights
 
NetLogic Microsystems announced the innovative XLP II family of multi-core processors, the industry’s most advanced and highest performance communications multi-core processors for next-generation LTE mobile infrastructure, data center, enterprise networking, storage and security applications. The XLP II processor family, based on industry-leading 28 nanometer process technology, features groundbreaking innovations that deliver a dramatic 5-7x performance enhancement over the existing generation of XLP processors, which already offer best-in-class performance and have set the gold standard in multi-core processing today.
 

 
The company also began revenue shipments in the third quarter for its recently introduced XLP multi-core processors into the communications control plane market, which is estimated at approximately $1.5 billion. The control plane processing application represents a new market for NetLogic Microsystems’ XLP family of multi-core processors as previous generations of XLR® and XLS® families of processors were primarily targeted at the data plane processing market.
 

 
ZTE selected NetLogic Microsystems’ industry-leading NLA11k knowledge-based processors, optimized for Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) processing, for ZTE’s multi-terabit T8000 Cluster Router. ZTE’s T8000 Router is ideal for operators and service providers building sophisticated IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) infrastructure for next-generation network backbones.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this announcement of operating results contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and related payroll taxes, change in contingent earn-out liability, amortization of intangible assets, fair value adjustments of acquired inventory and related taxes, acquisition-related costs, lease termination costs, a gain recognized on a pre-acquisition investment in Optichron, Inc., an impairment charge on another investment, and the effects of excluding stock-based compensation upon the number of diluted shares used in calculating non-GAAP earnings per share.

We have excluded stock-based compensation expense and changes in contingent earn-out liability in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures primarily because these expenses rely on valuations based on future events such as the market price of our common stock and revenue generated from products acquired in the RMI and Optichron acquisitions during a defined period following the close that are difficult to predict and are affected by market factors that are largely not within the control of management. We have excluded stock related payroll taxes, amortization of intangible assets, fair value adjustments related to acquired inventory and the related tax effect, acquisition-related costs, lease termination costs, gain recognized on investment in Optichron, Inc. and impairment charge on other investment because we do not consider them to be related to our core operating performance.

We use the non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate the Company’s current performance. We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because we do not consider these charges either part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company that are within the control of management or that are used to evaluate management’s operating performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. For additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, and management’s explanation of why it considers such measures to be useful, refer to the Form 8-K dated October 26, 2011 that the Company has submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
