Regulation FD Disclosure.
QuickLogic Corporation (the Company) today announced updates to its previously issued financial guidance for its revenue in the second quarter of
2019. This update is due to the timing of certain orders of products from long-term customers that may be received in early third quarter of 2019 rather than in the second quarter of 2019. Depending on which, if any, of these orders are delayed to
the third quarter of 2019, the Company believes there may be a negative impact to
gross margin in the second quarter of 2019. The Company believes that this update will not have an impact on the
Companys guidance for cash usage for the second quarter 2019, nor does the Company believe that they will have an impact on the Companys prior outlook with respect to full year 2019 revenues and
gross margins. The Companys forecasts were originally provided on May 8, 2019 during the Companys conference call to discuss its results for the three months ended March 31,
2019. The Companys original forecast was that revenue for the second quarter of 2019 would be approximately $3.8 million, plus or minus 10%. The Company now forecasts that its revenue for the second quarter of 2019 will be between $2.0
million and $2.4 million. The Company also now forecasts that its net cash balance will be between $4.0 million and $4.5 million with a $15.0 million line of credit available as of June 30, 2019.
The delay in orders is solely due to delayed qualification timing and timing of orders from military/aerospace/defense
for its legacy products, and it is possible that some of these orders may still ship prior to the end of the current quarter. Management believes that the recent acquisition of SensiML and its
eFPGA licensing platform will allow it to diversify its revenue to consist of a mixture of SaaS, subscription, software, licensing, and hardware revenue, thereby producing a more predictable overall revenue stream that will offset revenue
fluctuations in any one area.
