Revenue for the second quarter was $26.4 million, essentially flat compared with both the prior quarter revenue of $26.2 million and to the $26.5 million reported in the second fiscal quarter a year ago. The Q2 sequential revenue increase was driven by increased revenues from royalties offset by slightly lower license revenue.
Revenue from royalties was $13.0 million, an increase of $1.1 million or 9 percent from the prior quarter and $0.4 million or 3 percent from the $12.5 million reported in the second quarter a year ago. The sequential increase in royalty revenue was a result of higher licensee unit volumes compared with the prior quarter. Licensee units grew 13 percent sequentially to 126 million units and 18 percent on a year to year basis. Contract and license revenue was $13.4 million, a decrease of 7 percent from the $14.4 million reported in the prior quarter and a 4 percent decrease from the $13.9 million reported in the second quarter a year ago.
Total operating expense, excluding restructuring charges, declined $4.2 million to $15.1 million from $19.3 million in the previous quarter, mainly reflecting the cost control measures implemented earlier in the year.
The Company's fiscal Q2 2009 GAAP net income was $5.0 million or $0.11 per share on a diluted basis. This compares with a net loss of $7.0 million or $0.16 per basic and diluted share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $12.1 million or $0.28 per share in the second quarter a year ago. This marks the Company's first GAAP profitable quarter since the fourth quarter fiscal 2007.
Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2009, which excludes the effect of equity based compensation expense, restructuring costs, and certain costs related to the acquisition of Chipidea, was $8.5 million or $0.19 per diluted share. This represents a significant improvement when compared to the non-GAAP net income of $1.5 million or $0.03 per diluted share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $2.9 million or $0.07 per diluted share in the second quarter a year ago. The tables below provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures reported in this release to the corresponding GAAP results.
The Company's Q2 2009 ending cash balance was $20.5 million, an improvement of $4.3 million from the previous quarter including approximately a $0.6 million outflow related to the restructuring. Total outstanding debt was also reduced by $1.6 million to $16.5 million during the quarter.
"I am pleased with the results of our Processor Business; our cost controls, GAAP net income and positive cash flow, all of which contributed to the strengthening of our balance sheet during Q2," said John Bourgoin, president and CEO. "We are actively managing our costs worldwide to ensure the overall financial health of MIPS during these challenging economic times," added Bourgoin.
