                    GAAP EPS ($0.26); Non-GAAP EPS ($0.20)

WARREN, N.J., April 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc.
(Nasdaq:ANAD), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the broadband
wireless and wireline communications markets, reported first quarter 2013 net
sales of $26.4 million, a decrease of 13.4% sequentially and 7.2% from the
first quarter of 2012. Net sales for the first quarter 2013 included $4.8
million for WiFi products, a sequential increase of $3.7 million.

As of March 30, 2013, cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term
marketable securities totaled $50.9 million.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $19.0 million, or ($0.26) per
diluted share compared to $15.8 million, or ($0.23) in the first quarter of
2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $14.8 million, or
($0.20) per share compared to $14.9 million, or ($0.21) in the first quarter
of 2012.

"We believe that the aggressive ramp of our WiFi products to meet accelerating
customer demand, coupled with design win momentum of our new Cellular and
Infrastructure products, should drive higher factory utilization and
significantly improve our financial performance," said Ron Michels, Chairman,
President and CEO of ANADIGICS.

"During the first quarter, we repositioned the Company to grow revenues with
an improved cost structure," said Terry Gallagher, vice president and CFO. "In
commenting on the second quarter, we are seeing strong bookings to date,
driven by design wins of our cellular and WiFi products."

The statements regarding the Company's anticipated future performance are
forward looking and actual results may differ materially. Please see safe
harbor statement at the end of this press release.

This press release includes financial measures that are not in accordance with
GAAP, consisting of non-GAAP net income or loss and non-GAAP income or loss
per share. Management uses non-GAAP net income or loss and non-GAAP income or
loss per share to evaluate the company's operating and financial performance
in light of business objectives, for planning purposes, when publicly
providing our business outlook and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons.
ANADIGICS believes that these measures are useful to investors because they
enhance investors' ability to review the company's business from the same
perspective as the company's management and facilitate comparisons of this
period's results with prior periods. These non-GAAP measures exclude amounts
related to stock-based compensation, marketable securities' adjustments,
certain non-recurring charges to cost of goods and restructuring charges.
Non-GAAP measures are used by some investors when assessing the ongoing
operating and financial performance of our Company. These financial measures
are not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP methods of
accounting and reporting used by other companies. Management acknowledges that
stock-based compensation is a recurring cost and is an important part of our
employee's compensation and impacts their performance. However, the expense is
non-cash in nature and there are various valuation methodologies and
assumptions used in determining stock-based compensation that may be unrelated
to operations, such as volatility and current interest rates. The presentation
of the additional information should not be considered a substitute for net
income or loss or income or loss per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Limitations of non-GAAP financial measures. The primary material limitations
associated with the use of non-GAAP measures as compared to the most directly
comparable GAAP financial measures are (i) they may not be comparable to
similarly titled measures used by other companies in ANADIGICS industry, and
(ii) they exclude financial information that some may consider important in
evaluating our performance. We compensate for these limitations by providing
reconciliations of reported net income or loss and income or loss per share to
non-GAAP net income or net loss and non-GAAP income or loss per share,
respectively, within this press release.
