QUICKLOGIC CORPORATION

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1 — The Company and Basis of Presentation

QuickLogic Corporation ("QuickLogic" or "the Company") was founded in 1988 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1999. The Company enables Original Equipment Manufacturers, or OEMs to maximize battery life for highly differentiated, immersive user experiences with Smartphone, Wearable, Hearable, Tablet and Internet-of-Things, or IoT devices. QuickLogic delivers these benefits through industry leading ultra-low power customer programmable System on Chip, or SoC semiconductor solutions, embedded software, and algorithm solutions for always-on voice and sensor processing, and enhanced visual experiences. The Company is a fabless semiconductor provider of comprehensive, flexible sensor processing solutions, ultra-low power display bridges, and ultra-low power Field Programmable Gate Arrays, or FPGAs.

The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited. In the opinion of management, these statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to provide a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented. The Company recommends that these interim condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, on March 9, 2018. Operating results for the three and six-month periods ended July 1, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

QuickLogic's fiscal year ends on the Sunday closest to December 31 and the fiscal quarters each end on the Sunday closest to the end of each calendar quarter. QuickLogic's second fiscal quarters for 2018 and for 2017 ended on July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, respectively.

Liquidity

The Company has financed its operations and capital investments through sales of common stock, capital and leases, and bank lines of credit. As of July 1, 2018, the Company's principal sources of liquidity consisted of cash and cash equivalents of $22.8 million and $6.0 million that is available for draw at the Company's election upon credit approval under its revolving line of credit arrangement with Silicon Valley Bank, which expires on September 24, 2018. The Company has drawn down all of the $6.0 million in currently available credit under its revolving line of credit as of July 1, 2018.

Under its Fourth Amendment to the Third Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement with its lender, the Company is required to maintain (i) unrestricted cash or cash equivalents at the Silicon Valley Bank or at any of its affiliates at all times in an amount of at least $6,000,000; and (ii) a ratio of quick assets to the results of (i) current liabilities minus (ii) the current portion of deferred revenue plus (iii) the long-term portion of the obligations of at least 1.40 to 1.00, tested as of the last day of each month. This line of credit provides for committed loan advances of up to $6.0 million, subject to increases at the Company's election of up to $12.0 million. The Company is in compliance with all loan covenants as of the end of the current reporting period.

On May 29, 2018, the Company issued 13.5 million shares of common stock, $0.001 par value and warrants to purchases up to 5.4 million shares of common stock at a combined price of $1.15. The warrants are exercisable any time for a period of 60 months from the date of issuance on May 29, 2018, and are exercisable at a price of $1.38 per share. See Note 7 to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more details. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $13.9 million, after deducting underwriting commissions and other offering-related expenses. The Company expects to use the net proceeds for working capital, to accelerate the development of next generation products and for general corporate purposes. The Company may also use a portion of the net proceeds to acquire and/or license technologies and acquire and/or invest in businesses when the opportunity arises; however, the Company currently has no commitments or agreements and are not involved in any negotiations with respect to any such transactions. The shares were offered pursuant to a shelf registration statement filed on December 9, 2016 with the SEC, as amended on March 15, 2017, which was declared effective by the SEC on March 16, 2017, and as supplemented by a prospectus supplement dated May 25, 2018, which were filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Company currently uses its cash to fund its capital expenditures and operations. Based on past operating performance and current annual operating plans, the Company believes that its existing cash and cash equivalents, together with available financial resources from the revolving line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank, will be sufficient to fund its operations and capital expenditures and provide adequate working capital for the next twelve months from the date the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the six-month period ended July 1, 2018 are available to be issued.

QUICKLOGIC CORPORATION

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (Continued)

 

The Company's liquidity is affected by many factors including, among others: the level of revenue and gross profit as a result of the cyclicality of the semiconductor industry; the conversion of design opportunities into revenue; market acceptance of existing and new products, including solutions based on its Sensor Processing solution platforms; fluctuations in revenue as a result of product end-of-life; fluctuations in revenue as a result of the stage in the product life cycle of its customers' products; costs of securing access to and availability of adequate manufacturing capacity; levels of inventories; wafer purchase commitments; customer credit terms; the amount and timing of research and development expenditures; the timing of new product introductions; production volumes; product quality; sales and marketing efforts; the value and liquidity of its investment portfolio; changes in operating assets and liabilities; the ability to obtain or renew debt financing and to remain in compliance with the terms of existing credit facilities; the ability to raise funds from the sale of equity in the Company; the issuance and exercise of stock options and participation in the Company's employee stock purchase plan; and other factors related to the uncertainties of the industry and global economics.

Over the longer term, the Company anticipates that sales generated from its new product offerings, existing cash and cash equivalents, together with financial resources from its revolving line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank and its ability to raise additional capital in the public capital markets will be sufficient to satisfy its operations and capital expenditures for the next twelve months from the date the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the six-month period ended July 1, 2018 are available to be issued. The Company’s revolving line of credit will expire in September 2018 and it would need to renew this line of credit or find an alternative lender prior to the expiration date. Further, any violations of debt covenants during 2018 will restrict our access to any additional cash draws from the revolving line of credit, and may require immediate repayment of the outstanding debt amounts. The Company believes that it will be able to either renew the revolving line of credit or obtain alternative financing on acceptable terms. However, the Company cannot provide any assurance that it will be able to raise additional capital, if required, or that such capital will be available on terms acceptable to the Company. The inability of the Company to generate sufficient sales from its new product offerings and/or raise additional capital if needed could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s operations and financial condition, including its ability to maintain compliance with its lender’s financial covenants.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of QuickLogic and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Foreign Currency

The functional currency of the Company's non-U.S. operations is the U.S. dollar. Accordingly, all monetary assets and liabilities of these foreign operations are translated into U.S. dollars at current period-end exchange rates and non-monetary assets and related elements of expense are translated using historical exchange rates. Income and expense elements are translated to U.S. dollars using the average exchange rates in effect during the period. Gains and losses from the foreign currency transactions of these subsidiaries are recorded as interest income and other expense, net in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Uses of Estimates

The preparation of these consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates, particularly in relation to revenue recognition, the allowance for doubtful accounts, sales returns, valuation of investments, valuation of long-lived assets including mask sets, valuation of inventories including identification of excess quantities, market value and obsolescence, measurement of stock-based compensation awards, accounting for income taxes and estimating accrued liabilities.

Contracts with customers often include promises to transfer multiple products and services to a customer. Determining whether products and services are considered distinct performance obligations that should be accounted for separately versus together may require significant judgment.

Judgment is required to determine the Stand Alone Selling Price, or SSP, for each distinct performance obligation. The Company uses a range of amounts to estimate SSP when each of the products and services are sold separately and determines the discount to be allocated based on the relative SSP of the various products and services when products and services sold are bundled. In instances where SSP is not directly observable, such as when the Company does not sell the product or service separately, it determines the SSP using information that may include market conditions and other observable inputs. The

7


QUICKLOGIC CORPORATION

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (Continued)

 

Company typically has more than one SSP for individual products and services due to the stratification of those products and services by customers. In these instances, the Company may use information such as the size of the customer, customer tier, type of the technology used, customer demographics, geographic region and other factors in determining the SSP.

Concentration of Risk

The Company's accounts receivable are denominated in U.S. dollars and are derived primarily from sales to customers located in North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and generally does not require collateral. See Note 11 for information regarding concentrations associated with accounts receivable.

Note 2 — Significant Accounting Policies

During the six-month period ended July 1, 2018, there were no changes in the Company's significant accounting policies from its disclosures in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. For a discussion of the significant accounting policies, please see the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the SEC on March 9, 2018.

Revenue Recognition

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update, or ASU, No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) and related ASU 2016-08, ASU 2016-10, ASU 2016-12 and ASU 2016-20, which provide supplementary guidance, and clarifications, effective January 1, 2018. The results for the reporting period beginning after January 1, 2018, are presented in accordance with the new standard, although comparative information for the prior year has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards and policies in effect for those periods. Adoption of the new standard did not have a significant impact on the current period revenues or on the prior year Consolidated Financial Statements. No transition adjustment was required to the retained earnings of the Company as of January 1, 2018. Under the new standard revenue is recognized as follows:

Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products or services.

The Company determines revenue recognition through the following steps:

 

Identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer

 

Identification of the performance obligations in the contract

 

Determination of the transaction price

 

Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract

 

Recognition of revenue when, or as, we satisfy a performance obligation

The Company generates most of its revenue by supplying standard hardware products, which must be programmed before they can be used in an application. The Company also generates revenue from licensing their intellectual property or IP, software tools and royalty from licensing its technology.

Product Revenue

The Company recognizes hardware product revenue at the point of time when control of products is transferred to the customers.

Intellectual Property and Software License Revenue

The Company recognizes IP and Software License revenue at the point of time when the control of IP or software license has been transferred.

8


QUICKLOGIC CORPORATION

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (Continued)

 

Maintenance Revenue

The Company recognizes revenue from maintenance ratably over the term of the underlying maintenance contract term. Renewals of maintenance contracts create new performance obligations that are satisfied over the term with the revenues recognized ratably over the term.

Royalty Revenue

The Company recognizes royalty revenue when the later of the following events occurs:

a) The subsequent sale or usage occurs.

b) The performance obligation to which some or all of the sales-based royalty has been allocated has been satisfied.

Contracts with Multiple Performance Obligations

Some of the IP and Software Licensing contracts with customers contain multiple performance obligations. For these contracts, the Company accounts for individual performance obligations separately if they are distinct. The transaction price is allocated to the separate performance obligations on a relative standalone selling price basis. We determine the standalone selling prices based on our overall pricing objectives, taking into consideration market conditions and other factors, including the value of our contracts, type of the customer, customer tier, type of the technology used, customer demographics, geographic locations, and other factors.

Deferred Revenue

When the Company receives consideration, or such consideration is unconditionally due, prior to transferring goods or services to the customer under the terms of a sales contract, the Company records deferred revenue, which represents a contract liability. The Company recognizes deferred revenue as net sales once control of goods and/or services have been transferred to the customer and all revenue recognition criteria have been met and any constraints have been resolved.

Assets Recognized from Costs to Obtain a Contract with a Customer

The Company recognizes an asset for the incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer if it expects the benefit of those costs to be longer than one year.

Practical expedients and exemptions

(i) Taxes collected from customers and remitted to government authorities and that are related to the sales of the Company’s products are excluded from revenues.

(ii) Sales commissions are expensed when incurred because the amortization period would have been one year or less. These costs are recorded in Selling, general and administrative expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

(iii) The Company does not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for (i) contracts with original expected lengths of one year or less or (ii) contracts for which the Company recognizes revenue at the amount to which it has the right to invoice for the services performed.

New Accounting Pronouncements

Recently adopted accounting pronouncements:

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The core principle of ASU No. 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU No. 2014-09 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing GAAP. In applying this new guidance to contracts within its scope, an entity will: (1) identify the contract(s) with a customer, (2) identify the performance obligation in the contract, (3) determine the transaction price, (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (5)

recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. Additionally, this new guidance would require significantly expanded disclosures about revenue. The new standard allows for two transition methods: (i) a full retrospective method applied to each prior reporting period presented, or (ii) a modified retrospective method applied with the cumulative effect of adoption recognized on adoption. ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. In March, April, May and December 2016, the FASB issued ASU Nos. 2016-08, 2016-10, 2016-12 and 2016-20, respectively, which provide supplemental guidance and clarification to ASU No. 2014-09.

The Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09 and other supplementary guidance effective January 1, 2018 and applied the modified retrospective approach for the transition. After evaluation of the impact of the transition, the Company determined that this new standard has no impact on the revenues of the prior years and no adjustments are required to the Company's retained earnings as of January 1, 2018.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. This update clarifies how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. This ASU is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and for interim periods therein with early adoption permitted and must be applied retrospectively to all periods presented. The Company adopted this Accounting Standard effective January 1, 2018. The Company evaluated the impact on the financial statements and determined that the adoption of ASU No. 2016-15 had no impact on the consolidated financial statements.

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity transfers of assets other than inventory. This update removes the requirement under which the income tax consequences of intra-entity transfers are deferred until the assets are ultimately sold to an outside party, except for transfers of inventory. The tax consequences of such transfers would be recognized in tax expense when the transfers occur. The standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those annual periods. The Company adopted this Accounting Standard effective January 1, 2018 and determined that the adoption of ASU No. 2016-16 had no impact on the consolidated financial statements.

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718). ASU No. 2017-09 provides clarification on when modification accounting should be used for changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award. This ASU does not change the accounting for modifications but clarifies that modification accounting guidance should only be applied if there is a change to the value, vesting conditions or award classification and would not be required if the changes are considered non-substantive. The amendments of this ASU are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company adopted this Accounting Standard effective January 1, 2018. The Company evaluated the impact on the financial statements and determined that the adoption of ASU No. 2017-09 had no impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Recently issued accounting pronouncements not yet adopted:

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases. The new standard establishes a right-of-use or ROU model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of our pending adoption of the new standard on the consolidated financial statements.

In February 2018, FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, Income Statement - Reporting comprehensive Income. The new standard provides companies with an option to reclassify stranded tax effects resulting from enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, or TCJA, from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings. The guidance will be effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of 2019 with early adoption permitted, and would be applied either in the period of adoption or retrospectively to each period (or periods) in which the effect of the change in the tax rate as a result of TCJA is recognized. The Company does not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a material impact on its results of operations, financial position and cash flows.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (Continued)

 

In March 2018, FASB issued ASU No. 2018-05, Income Taxes (Topic 740). The new standard allows to insert the SEC’s interpretive guidance from Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 into the income tax accounting codification under U.S. GAAP. The ASU permits companies to use provisional amounts for certain income tax effects of the Tax Act during a one-year measurement period. The provisional accounting impacts for the Company may change in future reporting periods until the accounting analysis is finalized, which will occur no later than the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of our pending adoption of the new standard on the consolidated financial statements.

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Improvements to nonemployee share-based payment accounting. Currently, share-based payments to nonemployees are accounted for under Subtopic 505-50, which significantly differs from the guidance for share-based payments to employees under Topic 718. This ASU supersedes Subtopic 505-50 by expanding the scope of Topic 718 to include nonemployee awards and generally aligning the accounting for nonemployee awards with the accounting for employee awards. The effective date for public companies is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the effective date is fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of our pending adoption of the new standard on the consolidated financial statements.

Other new accounting pronouncements are disclosed on the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 filed with the SEC on March 9, 2018.

Note 3 — Net Loss Per Share

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share was computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period plus potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period under the treasury stock method. In computing diluted net loss per share, the weighted average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options and warrants.

For the three and six month periods ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, 7.3 million and 6.9 million of common shares associated with equity awards and the estimated number of shares to be purchased under the current offering period of the 2009 Employee Stock Purchase Plan were outstanding, respectively. These shares were not included in the computation of diluted net loss per share as they were considered anti-dilutive due to net loss the Company experienced during these periods. Warrants to purchase up to 5.4 million shares were issued in connection with May 29, 2018 stock offering were also not included in the diluted loss per share calculation of the second quarter and the six months ended July I, 2018 as they were also considered anti-dilutive due to the net loss the Company experienced during these periods.

This line of credit provides for committed loan advances of up to $6.0 million, subject to increases at the Company's election of up to $12.0 million. The Company is in compliance with all loan covenants as of the end of the current reporting period. Upon each advance, the Company can elect a

QUICKLOGIC CORPORATION

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (Continued)

 

On April 26, 2017, the Company filed an Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 100 million to 200 million. The proposal for the amendment was approved by the Company’s stockholders at its 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on April 26, 2017.

Issuance of Common Stock

On December 6, 2016, the Company filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3, as amended on March 15, 2017, under which the Company may, from time to time, sell securities in one or more offerings up to a total dollar amount of $40.0 million. The Company's shelf registration statement was declared effective on March 16, 2017.

Under the shelf registration, on May 29, 2018, the Company issued an aggregate of 13.5 million shares of common stock, $0.001 par value and warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 5.4 million shares of common stock in a confidentially marketed underwritten offering. The common stock and warrants were issued in units (the “Units”), with each Unit consisting of (i) one share of common stock and (ii) a warrant to purchase 0.40 of a share of common stock, at a price of $1.15 per Unit. The Company received total net proceeds from the offering of $13.9 million, net of underwriting discounts and other offering expenses of $1.6 million.

The warrants are exercisable any time for a period of 60 months from the date of issuance on May 29, 2018, and are exercisable at a price of $1.38 per share. The Company allocated the proceeds between the common stock and the warrants based on the relative fair value of each on the date of issuance. The estimated grant date fair value was $0.57 per warrant and was calculated based on the following assumptions used in the Black-Scholes model: expected term of 5 years, risk-free interest rate of 2.58%, expected volatility of 52.75% and expected dividend of zero.

Under the shelf registration, in March 2017, the Company issued an aggregate of 11.3 million shares of common stock, $0.001 par value, in an underwritten public offering at a price of $1.50 per share. The Company received net proceeds from this offering of approximately $15.2 million, net of underwriter's commission and other offering expenses.

The Company previously issued 2.3 million warrants exercisable for the Company's common stock with a strike price of $2.98 in conjunction with a June 2012 financing. These warrants expired in June 2017.

Note 8 — Employee Stock Plans

2009 Stock Plan

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

The 2009 Employee Stock Purchase Plan, or the 2009 ESPP, was adopted in March 2009.

option exercises with newly issued common shares. In connection with these exercises, there was no tax benefit realized by the Company due to the Company's current loss position. Total stock-based compensation related to stock options was $34,000 and $63,000 for the three months and $72,000 and $125,000 for the six months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, respectively.

Restricted Stock Units

The Company grants restricted stock units or RSUs, to employees and board of directors with various vesting terms. RSUs entitle the holder to receive, at no cost, one common share for each RSU as it vests. In general, the Company's policy is to withhold shares in settlement of employee tax withholding obligations upon the vesting of RSUs. The stock-based compensation related to RSUs was $382,000 and $284,000 for three months and $722,000 and $473,000 the six months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, respectively. As of July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, there was $2.3 million and $1.2 million, respectively, in unrecognized compensation expense related to RSUs. The remaining unrecognized stock-based compensation expense is expected to be recorded over a weighted average period of 2.59 years.

Based on the available objective evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the Company's US domestic net deferred tax assets will not be fully realizable. Accordingly, the Company has provided a full valuation allowance against the associated deferred tax assets. The Company will continue to assess the realizability of the deferred tax assets in future periods.

The Company had no unrecognized tax benefits as of July 1, 2018 and December 31, 2017, which would affect the Company's effective tax rate. The accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions was not significant as of July 1, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

The Company does not anticipate any material changes to its unrecognized tax benefits during the next 12 months.

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income taxes in many U.S. states and foreign jurisdictions in which the Company operates. The U.S. tax years from 1998 forward remain effectively open to examination due to the carryover of unused net operating losses and tax credits.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act") was signed into legislation. The Tax Act introduced a broad range of tax reform measures that significantly change the federal income tax laws. The provisions of the Tax Act that may have significant impact on the Company include the permanent reduction of the corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% (effective for tax years including or commencing on January 1, 2018), one-time transition tax on post-1986 foreign unremitted earnings, provision for Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income or GILTI, deduction for Foreign-Derived Intangible Income or FDII, repeal of corporate alternative minimum tax, limitation of various business deductions, modification of the maximum deduction of net operating loss with no carryback but indefinite carryforward provision and the limitation on the deductibility of executive compensation. Many provisions in the Tax Act are generally effective in tax years beginning in 2018.

At December 31, 2017, the Company reflected the provisional income tax effects of the Tax Act under Accounting Standards Codification Topic 740, Income Taxes including a re-measurement of the deferred tax assets based on the revised rates at which they are expected to reverse. There was no tax effect related to the re-measurement of U.S. deferred taxes using the relevant tax rate at which the Company expects them to reverse due to the Company having recorded a full valuation allowance against its U.S. federal and state deferred tax assets. The estimated one-time transition tax on post-1986 foreign unremitted earnings should not have a material impact to the effective tax rate as the deemed distribution is offset by taxable losses. The Company continues to appropriately refine such amounts within the measurement period allowed by Staff Accounting Bulletin or SAB No.118, which will be completed no later than the fourth quarter of 2018.

For the six months ended July 1, 2018, the Company noted no additional guidance or information that affects the provisional amounts recorded for the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company will continue to monitor and analyze any additional guidance and information that may be issued by the federal and state tax authorities.

In January 2018, the FASB released guidance on the accounting for tax on the global intangible low-taxed income (“GILTI”) provisions of the Tax Act. The GILTI provisions impose a tax on foreign income in excess of a deemed return on tangible assets of foreign corporations. The Company is not projecting any material impact from GILTI inclusions.

Overview

We enable OEMs to maximize battery life for highly differentiated, immersive user experiences with Smartphone, Wearable, Hearable, Tablet and IoT devices. We deliver these benefits through industry leading ultra-low power customer programmable SoC semiconductor solutions, embedded software, and algorithm solutions for always-on voice and sensor processing, and enhanced visual experiences. In addition to delivering our own semiconductor solutions, we have an IP business that licenses our eFPGA technology for use in other semiconductor companies SoCs.

We are also a fabless semiconductor company that designs, markets, and supports primarily silicon solutions, as well as FPGAs, software drivers, associated design software and programming hardware, and eFPGA IP called ArcticPro. Our solutions are created from our new silicon platforms including our EOS™, ArcticLink® III, PolarPro®3, PolarPro II, PolarPro, and Eclipse II products (which together comprise our new product category). Our mature products include primarily pASIC®3 and QuickRAM® as well as programming hardware and design software.

Our semiconductor solutions typically fall into one of three categories: Sensor Processing, Display and Visual Enhancement, and Smart Connectivity. Our solutions include a unique combination of our silicon platforms, IP, custom logic, software drivers, and in some cases, firmware, and application software. All of our silicon platforms are standard devices and must be programmed to be effective in a system. Our IPs range from those that enable always-on context-aware sensor applications, such as our FFE, and our Sensor Manager and Communications Manager technologies, to IP that (i) improves multimedia content, such as our VEE technology, and DPO; and (ii) implements commonly used mobile system interfaces, such as LVDS, MIPI, and SDIO. We provide complete solutions by first architecting the solution jointly with our customer's or ecosystem partner’s engineering group, selecting the appropriate solution platform and IPs, providing custom logic, integrating the logic, programming the device with the IPs and/or firmware, providing software drivers or application software required for the customer's application, and supporting the customer on-site during integration, verification and testing.

20


 

We also work with mobile processor manufacturers, sensor manufacturers, and/or voice recognition, sensor fusion and context awareness algorithm developers in the development of reference designs, QVLs, or “Catalog” solutions. Through reference designs that incorporate our solutions, we believe mobile processor manufacturers, sensor manufacturers, and sensor algorithm companies can expand the served available market for their respective products. Furthermore, should a solution development for a processor manufacturer or sensor and/or sensor algorithm company be applicable to a set of common OEMs or ODMs, we can amortize our R&D investment over that set of OEMs/ODMs. We call this type of solution a Catalog solution and we are placing a greater emphasis on developing and marketing these types of solutions.

In order to grow our revenue from its current level, we depend upon increased revenue from our new products, including existing new product platforms, eFPGA IP and platforms currently in development. We expect our business growth to be driven by silicon solutions and eFPGA IP and therefore our solutions revenue growth needs to be strong enough to enable us to sustain profitability while we continue to invest in the development, sales and marketing of our new solution platforms and IPs. The gross margin associated with our solutions is generally lower than the gross margin of our FPGA products, which is primarily due to the price sensitive nature of the higher volume mobile consumer opportunities that we are pursuing with our solutions. The gross margin from our eFPGA IP licensing is generally higher than the gross margins of our semiconductor devices due to the nature of IP having a lower cost of sales.

We continue to seek to expand our revenue, including pursuing high-volume sales opportunities in our target market segments, by providing solutions incorporating our intellectual property, or industry standard interfaces. Our industry is characterized by intense price competition and by lower margins as order volumes increase. While winning large volume sales opportunities will increase our revenue, we believe these opportunities may decrease our gross profit as a percentage of revenue.

During the second quarter of 2018, we generated total revenue of $3.1 million. This represents an increase of 13% from the prior quarter and 3% from the second quarter of 2017. Our new product revenue was $1.6 million, an increase of 22% from the prior quarter and 6% from the second quarter of 2017. Quarter over quarter increase was primarily due to increases in our Display Bridge and Sensor Processing product shipments. Year over year increase was primarily due to an increase in Connectivity product shipments. Our mature product revenue was $1.5 million, which represents an increase of 5% from the prior quarter and flat compared to the second quarter of 2017. We expect our mature product revenue to continue to fluctuate over time.

In second quarter and for the first six months of 2018 and, revenue was generated from diverse customers compared to concentration in one or two customers in the prior quarter and prior years.  

We devote substantially all of our development, sales and marketing efforts to our new sensor processing solutions using our EOSTM S3 platforms, derivative products based on software-driven features, development of additional new products and solution platforms, and to our new eFPGA IP licensing initiative. Overall, we reported a net loss of $3.5 million for the second quarter of 2018 compared to a net loss of $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2017.

Critical Accounting Estimates

The methods, estimates and judgments we use in applying our most critical accounting policies have a significant impact on the results we report in our consolidated financial statements. The SEC has defined critical accounting policies as those that are most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations and require us to make difficult and subjective judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates of matters that are inherently uncertain. Based on this definition, our critical policies include revenue recognition, valuation of inventories, including identification of excess quantities and product obsolescence, valuation of investments, valuation of long-lived assets, measurement of stock-based compensation and estimation of accrued liabilities. We believe that we apply judgments and estimates in a consistent manner and that this consistent application results in consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes that fairly represent all periods presented. However, any factual errors or errors in these judgments and estimates may have a material impact on our financial statements. During the three and six months ended July1, 2018, there were no changes in our critical accounting policies from our disclosure in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the SEC on March 9, 2018 except for the new accounting standards adopted in the first quarter of 2018 as described in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements. For a discussion of critical accounting policies and estimates, please see Item 7 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the SEC on March 9, 2018. See also Note 2 to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for three and six months ended July 1, 2018 for the details of the newly adopted accounting standards.
