MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.
Full Year 2013 and Recent Highlights
- Secured multiple new design wins for the Bandwidth Engine® IC product families, representing both new customers and new platforms;
- Commenced early production shipments of Bandwidth Engine ICs, with increased unit shipments both sequentially and year over year;
- Secured first design engagements for new family of LineSpeed™ 100G PHY solutions;
- Introduced third generation Bandwidth Engine architecture optimized to enhance the performance of multi-core packet processing engines; and
- Ended the year with total cash and investments of $50.5 million.
“We continued to make good progress throughout 2013 on our operational execution, design win momentum and sales activity,” said Len Perham, MoSys’ president and chief executive officer. “We increased our design wins three-fold in 2013 compared with 2012, including both Bandwidth Engine ICs and LineSpeed 100G PHY solutions. These new design wins represent an expanded customer base, as well as extended use of Bandwidth Engine ICs within existing customers. As our first design wins advance toward production release, IC unit shipments began to accelerate in the fourth quarter of 2013, and this acceleration in shipped volumes will likely continue period to period through 2014.
“In 2013, we announced sample availability of the three members of the Bandwidth Engine 2 family, the Burst, Access and Macro products, which enables us to provide a broad range of purpose-built solutions to meet our customers’ application needs. In addition, we introduced the first two members of our LineSpeed family of integrated CMOS PHY ICs. The LineSpeed 100G Multi-Mode Gearbox and Quad Full Duplex Retimer have proven their functionality with industry standards and interoperability with the 100G optical module and networking equipment ecosystem. The Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed products enable critical density, performance and features for line cards in next generation networking and communications equipment. We also just announced our third generation Bandwidth Engine architecture, which represents a new co-processing paradigm with the ability to advance memory access performance well beyond current levels. This innovative architecture is capable of throughput up to 800+ Gbps, provides intelligent offload to relieve the packet processing engine of access-intensive operations and represents a powerful solution for the memory access bottleneck.
“In conclusion, I believe we are progressing well in our transition toward becoming a fabless semiconductor company. We now have a portfolio of IC products with design wins at leading customers and expect to begin generating early stage production revenue in 2014,” concluded Mr. Perham.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement MoSys’ consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, MoSys uses non-GAAP financial measures that exclude from the statement of operations the effects of stock-based compensation and amortization of recorded intangible assets. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors and other interested persons because they are one of the primary indicators that MoSys’ management uses for planning and forecasting future performance. MoSys’ management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items is useful to investors because MoSys’ management does not consider these charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company that are within the control of management or that would be used to evaluate management’s operating performance.
Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is provided in a table below the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. For additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, and management’s explanation of why it considers such measures to be useful, refer to the Form 8-K dated February 7, 2014, which the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
