For the second quarter of 2012, total revenue increased 26% to $9.6 million from $7.6 million in the second quarter of 2011, and increased 5% from $9.2 million in the first quarter of 2012.

This compares to GAAP net loss of $5.8 million, or $(0.42) per share, reported in the same period of the prior year, and net loss of $1.7 million, or $(0.08) per share, reported in the first quarter of 2012.

On a non-GAAP basis1, excluding the above-mentioned charges, net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $385,000, or $0.02 per share.

For the six months ended July 1, 2012, product revenue increased 28% to $18.7 million from $14.7 million in the same period last year. GAAP net loss for first six months of 2012 was $3.4 million, or $(0.16) per share, including $505,000 in amortization of intangibles, $2.4 million in stock-based compensation, $93,000 in restructuring expenses, and $353,000 in special litigation-related expenses. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $9.2 million, or $(0.71) per share, reported in the first six months of 2011.

On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the first six months of 2012 was $24,000, or $0.00 per share, which compares to a non-GAAP net loss of $1.4 million, or $(0.10) per share, for the same period of the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first six months of 2012 was $1.7 million, compared to a loss of $376,000 in the same period of the prior year.

Executive Commentary

“We are pleased to report another record quarter of strong revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 million, and more than $300,000 non-GAAP earnings,” commented Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GigOptix. “Our product lines continue to drive our top line growth as we extend our optical product offerings from telecom to datacom and consumer electronics; further strengthen our RF-MMICs product offering by working with key partners such as our new IBM relationship to expand our presence in the E-band market; and combine the efforts of our optical and ASIC engineering lines.”

“We continue to execute on our mission of establishing the Company as a leading provider of all devices enabling end-to-end high speed information streaming over the network, by enhancing our position in the E-band back-haul point-to-point wireless market, and our entry into consumer electronics. In our RF/MMIC business, we were pleased to announce our strategic licensing agreement with IBM to leverage their Silicon Germanium (SiGe) millimeterwave transceiver technology that complements our E-band Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) power amplifier solutions and further drives us into the wireless business. Separately, we also announced the first deployment of one of our optical interconnect chipsets in the consumer electronics market. Those components are now in full production with a leading Japanese manufacturer to enable their high speed data interconnect module used for HDTV and next generation HD information transfer on professional studio cameras. In addition to these new initiatives, we have continued to productize our 40G and 100G drivers, modulators and transimpedance amplifiers offerings and enhance production access with global Tier-1 datacom and telecom customers. We also introduced our first 400G Mach-Zehnder Modulator driver in the quarter. Overall, this quarter we continued to make solid steps to uniquely address the needs of our customers and diversify our business,” concluded Dr. Katz.

Litigation against M/A-Com (Optomai) Update

GigOptix continues to actively prosecute the lawsuit for misappropriation of confidential information and trade secrets against its former employees Messrs. Manan, Rajgarhia, D’Agostino, Hwan Yoo and Bovaird, the company which was formed in October 2009 while 4 of the 5 were still employed by GigOptix, Optomai, Inc., and the parent of Optomai, M/A-COM Technology Solutions, Inc. As previously reported in the Company’s SEC filings, the Company has been engaged in discovery, which includes forensic work. This has led to the Company filing on Monday, July 30, 2012 with the Superior Court of California in Santa Clara County a motion for a preliminary injunction against M/A-Com, Optomai and two of the former employees who were designers.

Outlook

“During the first half of fiscal 2012, we made good progress toward our stated goal of achieving $40 million of revenue, which reflects growth of approximately 30% for the fiscal year. We are optimistic about the large opportunity in front of us, and our ability to translate this opportunity into long-term shareholder value,” stated Mr. Curt Sacks, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of GigOptix.
