FREMONT, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 3, 2008— Virage Logic Corporation (NASDAQ:VIRL), the semiconductor industrys trusted IP partner, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2008.

For fiscal 2008, total revenues were $59.3 million compared to $46.5 million for the prior year. Revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 were $15.5 million, compared with $13.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 and $15.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2008.

License and maintenance revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 was $12.1 million, compared with $9.9 million for the same period a year ago and $12.3 million for the prior quarter. Royalties for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 were $3.4 million, compared with $3.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 and $2.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2008.

Net loss for the fourth quarter ended September 30, 2008 on a GAAP basis was $47,000, or $(0.00) per share, compared with a net loss of $0.4 million, or ($0.02) per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. For the 2008 fiscal year net income was $0.6 million or $0.02 per share fully diluted compared to a loss of $4.6 million or ($0.20) per share for fiscal 2007.

On a non-GAAP basis which excludes the effects of FAS123R stock compensation expense, restructuring and acquisition related charges, the company would have reported a net income of $0.9 million, or $0.04 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 and $4.8 million or $0.20 per share for the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2008. The reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP includes $1.4 million of stock-based compensation expense and approximately $0.2 million of acquisition related charges reduced by $0.7 million tax effect for a net total of $0.9 million.

Dan McCranie, executive chairman for Virage Logic, said, Our Company performed well in almost every department last year. Out of our total fiscal 2008 revenue of $59.3 million, license and maintenance revenue for the year was at an historical high of $47.3 million and our earnings of $0.04 per share on a non-GAAP basis was the fifth quarter of consecutive non-GAAP profitability. In addition to these metrics, we also made good progress on the key transformative initiatives we established early in fiscal 2007, including the following:

  • Being first-to-market with next generation advanced technology products. We introduced our 40nm SiWare memory compiler and logic library IP and introduced our Intelli DDR3 memory controller interface IP on the 65-nanometer (nm) process node. Im also particularly proud of the early successes we have had on the 32nm process node. In the fourth quarter, we taped out our first 32nm test chip and booked our first 32nm customer engagement with a major IDM.
  • Broadening our product portfolio. Our stated goal was to broaden our product portfolio through both organic and inorganic growth. During the year we executed well on this initiative and as a result we were able to expand our customer base, broaden our product offerings and increase our revenue. The acquisition of Ingot Systems in late fiscal 2007 established our Application Specific IP (ASIP) product line - comprising our advanced DDR offerings and in fiscal 2008 we experienced good acceptance with this new product line. In late fiscal 2008, we acquired Impinj Incorporateds IP business, thus broadening our non-volatile memory (NVM) electrically alterable product offerings and establishing ourselves as the NVM market leader. On the organic product front, in addition to our SiWare product family, we also introduced the latest release of the STAR Memory System that features an open memory interface to give designers the freedom to use the system's capabilities with their choice of Virage Logic memories, other commercially available third-party memories or internally developed embedded memories.
  • Building Virage Logic into a company that is a Trusted IP Partner in the industry. We made strong progress on this initiative through deeper engagements with long standing customers such as AMD, ADI, CSR, and four more tier one IDM partners, as well as through deeper strategic engagements with our foundry partners. We also engaged with numerous new customers including NextIO, 3Leaf, Movidia and a leading FPGA provider.
  • Improvement in royalties from advanced nodes. During this past quarter, we saw growth in royalties from our advanced node products, particularly at the 65 and 55nm process nodes. This contributed to total royalties for the fourth quarter of $3.4 million, a 19.7% increase over the previous quarter. We believe we will see increasing royalties at these advanced nodes in future quarters.
