Disappointing Q2 For Anadigics

14.4 percent sales drop driven by the decline in non-strategic cellular mobile business

RF company Anadigics has reported second quarter 2015 net sales of $15.8 million, a sequential decrease of 14.4 percent, driven principally by the decline in non-strategic cellular mobile business.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $6.2 million, or ($0.07) per diluted share. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $4.5 million, or ($0.05) per share.

As of July 4, 2015, cash and cash equivalents totaled $15.2 million, or net cash of $11.2 million, after excluding $4.0 million drawn under the company's credit facility.

"Despite market softness in small cell and some temporary excess customer inventory to work through in WiFi, we experienced only a modest sequential decline in total infrastructure revenue in Q2," said Ron Michels, chairman & CEO.

"While we continue to make progress in our core infrastructure businesses by launching new products, earning new design sockets, and gaining new customers, we expect the widely reported market softness in CATV and small cell to persist through the end of 2015. We believe the softness in both markets will subside in 2016 as deployments pick up steam. Most importantly, we are prepared with broad design-win penetration to meet the demand when strong market growth does, in fact, return."

"To address the impact any core market softness may have on the company's financials, we are exploring capitalisation options that may provide adequate cash infusion over the next twelve months," said Terry Gallagher, executive vice president and CFO.

He added: "We further believe that if such a cash infusion is secured, the company financials will be adequately strengthened to a level that mitigates any going concern risks that may arise as a result of continued infrastructure market softness. With a sound long-term growth plan and solid company execution, we expect any new capital infusion should contribute to the long-term value creation for our shareholders. While we are optimistic, we cannot guarantee at this time that we will be able to secure additional financing on satisfactory terms or at all."


In Q3 Anadigics anticipates total revenue in the range of $12.0 million to $12.6 million, representing a sequential revenue decline of 20-24 percent and reflecting a continued decline in non-strategic legacy mobile, the impact of a broader slowdown in CATV spending, a reduction in legacy WiMAX and IoT businesses, and a slow return to Small Cell revenue growth due to continued delays at major carriers in Asia.

Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to decline sequentially by 500-800 basis points on the lower expected revenue.

Operating expenses are expected to be marginally 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.
