CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for cable and satellite broadband communications, the connected home, and wired and wireless infrastructure markets today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016. Management Commentary "We are pleased to announce strong third quarter 2016 revenue of $96.3 million, consistent with prior guidance, representing an increase of 1 percent year-over-year. GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins were 57.6 percent and 63.1 percent, respectively. GAAP and non-GAAP operating margins were 11 percent and 30 percent, respectively, and approximately $18.4 million of operating cash flow was generated during the quarter. Our operating results benefited from the revenue contributions of our recently closed wireless infrastructure acquisitions addressing the cellular access and backhaul markets, which partially offset seasonal softness in certain cable and satellite broadband operator platforms. Our diversifying revenues across broadband access, wireless infrastructure, and fiber-optic telecom and data-center infrastructure markets, combined with continued tight operating expense management resulted in another quarter of strong profitability," commented Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO. "We continue to increase our analog and mixed-signal content in our broadband access and connectivity platforms addressing broadband service provider markets. These initial revenue contributions from our wireless infrastructure investments illustrate progress being made towards the realization of our strategy of leveraging our leading RF CMOS mixed-signal technology platform into the large wired and wireless infrastructure markets," continued Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO.
