SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2021 / MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY) ('MoSys' or the 'Company'), a provider of semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for cloud, networking, security and communications systems, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.
First Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Total net revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.6 million for the previous quarter and $1.3 million for the first quarter of 2020. Product revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $1.2 million, compared with $1.4 million in the previous quarter and $1.1 million in the year ago period. The quarter-over-quarter decrease in revenue reflected lower shipments of Bandwidth Engine® products and reduced royalties from 1T-SRAM licensees.
Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 63%, compared with 68% for the fourth quarter of 2020 and 58% for the first quarter of 2020.
Total operating expenses on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2021 were $2.2 million, compared with operating expenses of $2.0 million in the previous quarter and $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2020. Total non-GAAP operating expenses, excluding stock-based compensation expenses, for the first quarter of 2021 were $2.2 million, compared with $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2020. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.
GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $1.4 million, or $0.28 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.29 per share, for the previous quarter, and a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.61 per share, for the first quarter of 2020.
Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $1.3 million, or $0.28 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.27 per share, in the prior quarter and a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.58 per share, for the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021 was a negative $1.3 million, compared with a negative $0.9 million in the previous quarter and a negative $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2020.
At March 31, 2021, the Company had cash and investments of $11.1 million. In March 2021, the Company fully paid the outstanding balance of its senior secured convertible notes.
'During the first quarter, we continued to make progress with our design-win pipeline and customer engagements, while also effectively managing the challenging supply chain environment,' stated Dan Lewis, MoSys' President and CEO. 'With supplier lead times increasing, our operations team has established appropriate inventory levels to service our customers' requirements. However, we have experienced customer order adjustments, which we believe are attributable to production limitations caused by shortages in other components. We expect the overall semiconductor supply constraints will continue to impact our customers in the second quarter and anticipate a return to more normal ordering and delivery levels in the second half of the year.'
'During the quarter, we won multiple new designs for our IC products by leveraging our proven track record with customers and expanded sales channels,' continued Mr. Lewis. 'We are encouraged by our expanding pipeline and continue to strategically invest in future growth opportunities. Further, our product development efforts remain focused on our Virtual Accelerator Engine (VAE) IP solutions, which provide expanded market opportunities for our technology. We have delivered multiple IP drops to our partners and prospects and continue to identify new opportunities, especially for acceleration applications at the edge of 5G networks. The pipeline for our VAE IP remains robust, as we leverage new referrals from multiple partners, which we believe will result in further expansion of our portfolio. Additionally, we remain on track to sign an initial production license with a lead IC customer that should result in follow-on licenses for additional customer product programs.'
Mr. Lewis concluded, 'With over $11 million in cash and investments as a result of our registered direct offering and warrant exercises during the first quarter, we are in a stronger financial position in 2021. We continue to closely manage our expenditures and inventory levels, as we invest in developing our VAE IP solutions, while also preparing to capitalize on new market opportunities as the overall supply environment begins to normalize. Looking ahead, we are encouraged by the initial indications of a global economic recovery and believe it will have a positive impact on the markets in which we operate.'
The Company expects total net revenue for the second quarter of 2021 to be in the range of $1.0 million to $1.3 million.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement MoSys' consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, MoSys uses non-GAAP financial measures that exclude from the statement of operations the effects of stock-based compensation, a gain on extinguishment of debt and deemed dividends. MoSys' management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors and other interested persons because they are one of the primary indicators that MoSys' management uses for planning and forecasting future performance. The press release also makes reference to and reconciles GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and adjusted EBITDA, which the Company defines as GAAP net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax provision, and depreciation and amortization, as well as stock-based compensation, restructuring and impairment charges, gains on extinguishment of debt and a one-time deemed dividend. Management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because management does not consider these charges 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 would be used to evaluate management's operating performance.
Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which are provided in tables below the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. 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. 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 Current Report on Form 8-K dated May 6, 2021 that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
