Fiscal 2019 First Quarter Financial Results
Total revenue for the first quarter of 2019 was $3.2 million, even with the fourth quarter of 2018 and up 16% compared with the first quarter of 2018. New product revenue was $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2019, a decline of 48% compared with the fourth quarter of 2018, and down 47% compared with the first quarter of 2018. This decline was due to significantly lower sales of display bridge and connectivity products that were not fully offset by increased EOS S3, QuickAI and SaaS subscription revenue. New product revenue accounted for 22% of the total revenue in the first quarter of 2019, compared with 41% in the fourth quarter of 2018, and 47% in the first quarter of 2018.  Mature product revenue was $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2019, up 32% compared with the fourth quarter of 2018, and up 71% compared with the first quarter of 2018.

First quarter 2019 GAAP gross margin was 62.0%, up from 51.7% in the fourth quarter of 2018, and 50.3% in the first quarter of 2018. 

First quarter 2019 non-GAAP gross margin was 62.8%, up from 52.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 51.5% in the first quarter of 2018.

First quarter 2019 GAAP operating expenses were $5.7 million, up from $4.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and $5.3 million in the first quarter of 2018. The higher operating expenses compared with the fourth quarter of 2018 were due to additional costs, primarily stock-based compensation, associated with the acquisition of SensiML Corporation, which closed on January 3, 2019.

First quarter 2019 non-GAAP operating expenses were $4.8 million, an increase from $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and down from $4.9 million compared with the first quarter of 2018.

First quarter 2019 GAAP net loss was $3.5 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with $3.1 million, or $0.03 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, and $4.0 million, or $0.05 per share, in the first quarter of 2018.

First quarter 2019 non-GAAP net loss was $2.5 million, or $0.03 per share, compared with $2.6 million, or $0.03 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, and $3.5 million, or $0.04 per share, in the first quarter of 2018.

For more information, visit www.quicklogic.com and https://www.quicklogic.com/blog/.

QuickLogic uses its website (www.quicklogic.com), the company blog (https://www.quicklogic.com/blog/), corporate Twitter account (@QuickLogic_Corp), Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/QuickLogic), and LinkedIn page (https://www.linkedin.com/company/13512/) as channels of distribution of information about its products, its planned financial and other announcements, its attendance at upcoming investor and industry conferences, and other matters. Such information may be deemed material information, and QuickLogic may use these channels to comply with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Therefore, investors should monitor the Company's website and its social media accounts in addition to following the Company's press releases, SEC filings, public conference calls, and webcasts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
QuickLogic reports financial information in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or U.S. GAAP, but believes that non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in evaluating its operating results and comparing its performance to comparable companies. Accordingly, the Company excludes charges related to stock-based compensation, restructuring, the effect of the write-off of long-lived assets and the tax effect on other comprehensive income in calculating non-GAAP (i) income (loss) from operations, (ii) net income (loss), (iii) net income (loss) per share, and (iv) gross margin percentage. The Company provides this non-GAAP information to enable investors to evaluate its operating results in a manner similar to how the Company analyzes its operating results and to provide consistency and comparability with similar companies in the Company's industry.

Management uses the non-GAAP measures, which exclude gains, losses and other charges that are considered by management to be outside of the Company's core operating results, internally to evaluate its operating performance against results in prior periods and its operating plans and forecasts. In addition, the non-GAAP measures are used to plan for the Company's future periods, and serve as a basis for the allocation of the Company's resources, management of operations and the measurement of profit-dependent cash and equity compensation paid to employees and executive officers.

Investors should note, however, that the non-GAAP financial measures used by QuickLogic may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies. QuickLogic does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures alone or as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation of U.S. GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures is included in the financial statements portion of this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures with their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding our future business expectations, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors including: delays in the market acceptance of the Company's new products; the ability to convert design opportunities into customer revenue; our ability to replace revenue from end-of-life products; the level and timing of customer design activity; the market acceptance of our customers' products; the risk that new orders may not result in future revenue; our ability to introduce and produce new products based on advanced wafer technology on a timely basis; our ability to adequately market the low power, competitive pricing and short time-to-market of our new products; intense competition, including the introduction of new products by competitors; our ability to hire and retain qualified personnel; our ability to capitalize on synergies with our newly acquired subsidiary SensiML Corporation; changes in product demand or supply; capacity constraints; general economic conditions; political events, international trade disputes, war, terrorism, natural disasters, public health issues, and other business interruptions that could disrupt supply or delivery of, or demand for, the Company's products; and changes in tax rates and exposure to additional tax liabilities. These and other potential factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from the results predicted are described in more detail in the Company's public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including the risks discussed in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in the Company's prior press releases, which are available on the Company's Investor Relations website at http://ir.quicklogic.com/and on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
