Disappointing Q1 Results For Anadigics

Net sales show a sequential drop of 11.7 percent

The RF company Anadigics has reported first quarter 2015 net sales of $18.4 million, a sequential decrease of 11.7 percent and in line with prior guidance. Infrastructure revenues, however, grew 23.3 percent sequentially to $12.0 million, and Non-GAAP gross margin increased sequentially by 455 basis points. The market responded with a 25.5 percent fall in the share price.

"We are very pleased with the 23.3 percent sequential increase in infrastructure revenues in the first quarter. The resulting financial performance was enabled by our ongoing strategic shift to an Infrastructure business model," said Ron Michels, chairman and CEO.  "While we anticipate some near-term market headwinds in Infrastructure, we believe this will be temporary, and our current outlook for long-term growth remains positive."

"In line with our continued migration to a leaner Infrastructure business model, we are implementing the next phase of cost improvement measures designed to match our supply capability with demand," said Terry Gallagher, executive vice president and CFO.  "These actions are expected to enable a more streamlined operating structure that lays the foundation for Anadigics' long-term improvement."

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $5.0 million, or ($0.06) per diluted share, a sequential improvement of 7.6 percent.  Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $3.8 million, or ($0.04) per share, representing a sequential improvement of 19.1 percent.

As of April 4, 2015, cash and cash equivalents totaled $17.0 million, or net cash of $13.0 million, after excluding $4.0 million drawn under the company's credit facility.


Anadigics anticipates a sequential revenue decline of 10-15 percent driven principally by a decline in mobile of approximately 20-25 percent in accordance with our shift to Infrastructure.  Infrastructure revenues are expected to decline sequentially by 7-9 percent following higher-than-expected growth in Q1 2015. 

Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to decline sequentially by 100-300 basis points on the lower expected revenue. Operating expenses are expected to be 5-7 percent lower, sequentially.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
