Audience Announces Fourth Quarter and Calendar Year 2012 Financial Results

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Audience, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADNC), the leader in advanced voice and audio processing for mobile devices, today announced its fourth quarter and calendar year 2012 financial results.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $38.7 million, compared with $18.0 million for the same period in 2011. As reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), fourth quarter 2012 net income was $3.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 22.5 million. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 included a $1.2 million income tax benefit from the release of a valuation allowance against Audience's deferred tax asset. This compares with a GAAP net loss of $5.6 million, or $(5.56) per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 1.0 million, for the same period in 2011. Gross margin on a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 53.8% of revenue, compared to 44.5% of revenue for the same period in 2011.

Revenue for calendar year 2012 was $143.9 million, compared with $97.7 million for 2011. Net income for calendar year 2012 was $15.2 million, or $0.63 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 15.7 million, compared to net income of $8.3 million, or $0.14 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 3.4 million for 2011.

Using Audience's non-GAAP measure defined below, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 22.5 million. This compares with a non-GAAP net loss of $4.8 million, or $(4.70) per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 1.0 million, for the same period in 2011. Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 54.0% of revenue, compared to 44.6% of revenue for the same period in 2011. For calendar year 2012, non-GAAP net income was $18.0 million, or $0.88 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 20.6 million, compared to 2011 non-GAAP net income of $10.5 million, or $0.79 per diluted share based on weighted average shares outstanding of 3.4 million.

"In the final quarter of 2012, we continued to execute our strategy to provide a compelling voice user experience on leading global mobile platforms, with ongoing adoption of our technology in exciting new mobile devices around the world, including the Motorola Razr I, Google's Nexus 10 tablet, the Huawei Ascend D2 and BBK's vivo X1," said Peter Santos, president and chief executive officer. "As we expand our earSmart voice and audio capabilities, and continue to diversify our business in this fast growing market, we look forward to the opportunity ahead of us in 2013."

"In a challenging quarter for the industry, our top line and bottom line achieved results above guidance," said Kevin Palatnik, chief financial officer. "With that strong end to the year, and anticipated growth in the first quarter, we believe we are well-positioned for 2013."

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward looking and actual results may differ materially.

Business Outlook
For the first quarter of 2013, the company expects total revenue to be in the range of $43 to $46 million. First quarter GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 53% to 56%. First quarter GAAP net income, which includes $1.1 million of expected stock based compensation expense and $0.7 million of non-cash rent expense, is expected to be in the range of $1.9 to $2.9 million, or $0.08 to $0.12 per diluted share on approximately 23.2 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

First quarter non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 53% to 56%. First quarter non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $3.7 to $4.7 million, or $0.15 to $0.19 per share on a diluted basis.

A schedule showing a reconciliation of the business outlook from GAAP diluted net income per share to non-GAAP diluted net income per share is included with this release.

Quarterly Conference Call Today
Peter Santos, president and chief executive officer, and Kevin Palatnik, chief financial officer, will host a fourth quarter 2012 financial results conference call today at 1:30 pm (Pacific) / 4:30 pm (Eastern). Attendees are asked to join the conference call at least ten minutes prior to the scheduled conference call time. The call may be accessed by dialing 1-877-303-3199 (toll free) or 1-253-237-1247 (international). The passcode is 87087101. A live and archived webcast of the call will be available on Audience's website at http://investor.audience.com/ for 30 days.

Audience expects that its corporate representatives will meet privately during the quarter with investors, the media, investment analysts and others. At these meetings, Audience may reiterate the business outlook published in this press release. At the same time, Audience will keep this press release, including the business outlook, publicly available on its website.

Beginning March 15, 2013, Audience will observe a Quiet Period during which Audience's representatives will not comment on Audience's business outlook, financial results or expectations. The Quiet Period will extend until the day when Audience's First Quarter 2013 Earnings Release is published, which is currently scheduled for May 2, 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Audience prepares its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for the United States (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross margin, net income and earnings per share information for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 and similar periods from the prior year included in this press release are different from those otherwise presented under GAAP. The following are explanations of each type of adjustment that we incorporate into non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense relates to equity incentive awards granted to our employees, directors, and consultants accounted for under GAAP. Stock-based compensation expense has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense for Audience. While we include the dilutive impact of such equity awards in weighted average shares outstanding, the expense associated with stock-based awards reflects a non-cash charge that we exclude from non-GAAP net income.

Stock warrant revaluation expense is related to preferred stock warrants outstanding that had to be revalued each quarter prior to our initial public offering. We believe the comparisons of ongoing operations should exclude effects of such revaluations as preferred stock warrant revaluation represents a non-cash expense.

On June 5, 2012, Audience entered into a lease agreement for its future corporate headquarters facility in Mountain View, CA. The facility is in the process of being constructed. Pursuant to the lease agreement, the lease falls under "build-to-suit" accounting treatment and therefore, in accordance with accounting for the effect of lessee involvement in asset construction, the company is considered to be the owner of the real estate project during the construction period. As such, Audience recorded an asset for construction in progress for incurred construction costs, and a liability for those costs that are not funded by the company. Additionally the rent costs associated with the ground lease during construction was recorded to the income statement. This rent cost is a non-cash charge that the company excluded from its non-GAAP net income.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, Audience's non-GAAP net income also excluded the effect of an income tax benefit associated with the release of a valuation allowance against Audience's deferred tax assets. Audience believes it is useful to exclude the tax benefit associated with the release of this valuation allowance as Audience does not expect releases in the valuation allowance of the magnitude recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012 to be recorded frequently.

The shares used to compute non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per share include the assumed conversion of all outstanding shares of convertible preferred stock into shares of common stock using the as-if converted method as of the beginning of each period presented or the date of issuance, if later. In May 2012, in conjunction with the closing of our initial public offering, all of our outstanding preferred stock was converted into shares of our common stock.

Audience has provided these measures in addition to GAAP financial results because management believes these non-GAAP measures help provide a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and annual growth rates that are not influenced by certain non-cash charges and therefore are helpful in understanding Audience's underlying operating results. These non-GAAP measures are some of the primary measures Audience's management uses for planning and forecasting. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to information provided by other companies. Reconciliations of the GAAP to non-GAAP results are presented at the end of this press release.

Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
Statements in the press release and certain matters to be discussed on the fourth quarter conference call regarding Audience, Inc., which are not historical facts, are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements may be identified by terms such as believe, expect, may, will, provide, could and should and the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. These statements, including statements relating to expectations of future revenue, net income and operating margin performance, future success for various products and our leadership position in the market, the demand for our solutions including continued demand by customers upon whom we are substantially dependent and diversification of our customer base are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those we anticipate as a result of various factors, including: our dependence on a single OEM, Samsung, for a substantial portion of our revenue; the transition our relationship with Apple, Inc. is undergoing; our need to maintain and expand our existing relationships with our OEMs and to establish relationships with new OEMs in order to maintain and increase our revenue; our ability to sustain profitable operations due to our history of losses and accumulated deficit; quarterly fluctuations in our results due to factors such as the timing of OEM product launches, customer purchasing behavior in light of anticipated mobile phone launches and our assessments of whether we have excess or obsolete inventory, among other factors; competition in the market for our products; our ability to enter end user product markets, such as notebooks and smart TVs, as well as new geographic markets; pressure on the average selling prices for our products; our lengthy sales cycle and the lack of certainty as to whether any given OEM's products will achieve market acceptance; our OEMs' lengthy and expensive process to qualify our products; our ability to develop new or enhanced products in a timely manner that achieve market acceptance; our reliance on fourth parties to manufacture, assemble and test our products; defects that may be present in our products; the impact of future intellectual property litigation and claims for indemnification; changes in tax laws or our ability to utilize our tax structure and net operating losses and other risks inherent in fabless semiconductor businesses. For a discussion of these and other related risks, please refer to "Risk Factors" in our most recent Form 10-Q, which is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Also, forward-looking statements represent our management's beliefs and assumptions only as of the date made. You should review our SEC filings carefully and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect.

Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.

 (A) For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, non-GAAP net income was
     adjusted by $5,338 to give effect to the conversion of our convertible
     preferred stock and certain preferred stock warrants using the as-if
     converted method into common shares as if the conversion had occurred
     as of the beginning of the period presented.
 (B) For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, non-GAAP diluted EPS was
     computed to give effect to the conversion of our convertible preferred
     stock and certain preferred stock warrants using the as-if converted
     method into common shares as if the conversion had occurred as of the
     beginning of the period presented. Therefore to bridge the GAAP to non-
     GAAP EPS the $2,247 non-cumulative dividends to preferred stockholders
     should not be allocated to stockholders.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.
