(January 30, 2013)

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for home entertainment, networking, mobile and embedded applications, today reported consolidated financial results for its second fiscal quarter of 2013 ended December 31, 2012. All financial results are reported in U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted.

  • Licensee royalty units grew to 194 million units from 182 million units in Q1 '13


  • GAAP net loss was $6.4 million or $0.12 per share; non-GAAP net loss was $0.5 million or $0.01 per share

Transaction Update


As previously announced, on November 5, 2012, MIPS entered into a patent sale agreement with Bridge Crossing, LLC ("Bridge Crossing"), an acquisition vehicle of Allied Security Trust ("AST"), and a merger agreement with Imagination Technologies Group plc (LSE:IMG) ("Imagination"), with anticipated net proceeds of approximately $7.31 per share in cash to each holder of MIPS common stock. On December 9, 2012, MIPS entered into an amendment to its merger agreement with Imagination that increased the purchase price being paid by Imagination to $80 million and removed the conditions to closing requiring the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States and that MIPS is not a real property holding corporation. As a result of the amendment, the net proceeds to each holder of MIPS common stock following the consummation of the proposed patent sale transaction with Bridge Crossing, the proposed recapitalization and the proposed merger, increased to approximately $7.64 per share in cash. On December 16, 2012, MIPS entered into a second amendment to its merger agreement with Imagination that increased the purchase price being paid by Imagination to $100 million. As a result of the amendment, the net proceeds to each holder of MIPS common stock, following the consummation of the proposed patent sale transaction with Bridge Crossing, the proposed recapitalization and the proposed merger, increased to approximately $7.94 per share in cash.




Both the patent sale transaction and the merger transaction are subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of MIPS Technologies' shareholders, who will vote separately on each of the transactions and the recapitalization. Approval of the patent sale transaction is not subject to stockholder approval of the Imagination merger transaction. The merger is subject to stockholder approval of the patent sale transaction and the recapitalization. The proceeds of the transactions, which are subject to a fixed holdback of approximately $100 million to cover tax and other liabilities, will be distributed to MIPS' stockholders on a pro-rata basis through a recapitalization of MIPS common stock. MIPS expects the transactions to close during the month of February 2013.

These adjustments reconcile the Company's GAAP results of operations to the reported non-GAAP results of operations. The Company believes that presentation of net loss and net loss per share excluding stock-based compensation expense, severance adjustment, expenses related to stockholder activities, expenses related to strategic opportunities, and transaction related costs provides meaningful supplemental information to investors, as well as management, that is indicative of the Company's ongoing operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and budgeting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results, and may be different than non-GAAP measures used by other companies.



(a) This adjustment reflects the stock-based compensation expense. For the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ending December 31, 2012, $1.9 million stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $710,000 to research and development, $434,000 to sales and marketing and $754,000 to general and administrative. For the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ending September 30, 2012, $1.9 million stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $683,000 to research and development, $499,000 to sales and marketing and $682,000 to general and administrative. For the second quarter of fiscal 2012 ending December 31, 2011, $1.4 million stock-based compensation expense was allocated as follows: $532,000 to research and development, $239,000 to sales and marketing and $641,000 to general and administrative. 



(b) This adjustment reflects the severance to the Company's former executives.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ending September 30, 2012, $44,000 was allocated to general and administrative. For the second quarter of fiscal 2012 ending December 31, 2011, $49,000 was allocated to general and administrative.



(c) This adjustment reflects the expenses in response to our activities and inquiries of Starboard Value LP allocated to general and administrative.



(d) This adjustment reflects the expenses incurred in connection with the Company's exploration of options related to patent monetization and other opportunities for increasing shareholder value prior to the announcement of the transaction on November 5, 2012, allocated to general and administrative.



(e) This adjustment reflects the transaction related costs primarily consisting of legal, banking fees and other professional charges subsequent to the announcement of the transaction on November 5, 2012.
