Revenue Increases 31% Year over Year
Positive Cash from Operations

PORTLAND, Ore., Jul 27, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ:PXLW), an innovative provider of powerful video and pixel processing technology, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Second quarter 2010 revenue was $18.7 million, at the mid-range of management guidance, and was unchanged from $18.7 million in the first quarter of 2010. Compared with the same quarter of 2009, revenue in the second quarter of 2010 increased 31%.

On a GAAP basis, gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2010 was 46.3%, unchanged from 46.3% in the first quarter of 2010, and down from 47.7% in the second quarter of 2009. Second quarter 2010 GAAP operating expenses were $9.5 million, up from $9.2 million in the previous quarter, and up from $7.9 million in the second quarter of 2009 due to increased investment in new product development. The Company recorded GAAP net loss of $(1.0) million, or $(0.08) loss per share in the second quarter of 2010, compared to GAAP net income of $4.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010, and GAAP net income of $2.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2009. GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2010 included a tax benefit of $5.3 million; and GAAP net income in the second quarter of 2009 included a gain of $3.8 million from the repurchase of long-term debt.

On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2010 gross profit margin was 49.0%, compared with 49.4% in the first quarter of 2010, and 52.0% in the second quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP operating expenses in the second quarter of 2010 were $9.3 million, compared with $8.9 million in the previous quarter, and $7.7 million in the second quarter of 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company recorded net loss in the second quarter of 2010 of $(0.4) million, or $(0.03) per share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $5.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010, and non-GAAP net loss of $(0.9) million, or $(0.07) per share in the second quarter of 2009. First quarter 2010 non-GAAP net income included a tax benefit of $5.0 million.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company's total cash and marketable securities balance was $32.9 million, up $0.2 million from $32.7 million at March 31, 2010. The Company generated $3.4 million of positive cash from operations during the three months ended June 30, 2010.

"Q2 was another solid quarter with 26% of revenues coming from new products, reflecting continued positive results from our ongoing investment," said Bruce Walicek, President and CEO of Pixelworks. "The need for innovative solutions that enable high video quality has never been greater, and Pixelworks is continuing to deliver products that address explosive trends such as 3D and Internet video."

Safe Harbor Statement

This release contains statements, including, without limitation, the statements in Bruce Walicek's quote and the "Business Outlook for 2010 Third Quarter" section above, that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Such statements are based on management's current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's business. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Actual results could vary materially from those contained in forward looking statements due to many factors, including, without limitation: our ability to deliver new products in a timely fashion; our new product yield rates; changes in estimated product costs; product mix; supply of products from third-party foundries; failure or difficulty in achieving design wins; timely customer transition to new product designs; competitive factors, such as rival chip architectures, introduction or traction by competing designs, or pricing pressures; the success of our products in expanded markets; current global economic challenges; levels of inventory at distributors and customers; changes in the digital display and projection markets; changes in customer ordering patterns or lead times; seasonality in the consumer electronics market; our efforts to achieve profitability from operations; insufficient, excess or obsolete inventory and variations in inventory valuation; the outcome of any litigation related to our intellectual property rights; and our lower cash position as a result of our debt repurchases.More information regarding potential factors that could affect the Company's financial results and could cause actual results to differ materially is included from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009 and subsequent SEC filings.

* Our non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share differs from GAAP gross profit, GAAP operating expenses, GAAP net income (loss) and GAAP net income (loss) per share due to the exclusion of gains on the sale of marketable securities, gains on the repurchase of long-term debt, restructuring charges, acquisition-related items, stock-based compensation expense and additional amortization of a non-cancelable prepaid royalty. Pixelworks' management believes the presentation of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share provides useful information to investors regarding Pixelworks' results of operations by allowing investors to better evaluate underlying cash flow dynamics. Pixelworks' management also uses each of these non-GAAP measures internally to better evaluate underlying cash flow dynamics. Pixelworks, however, cautions investors to consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, our GAAP financial measures.
