Entropic Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

Conference Call to be Webcast Today at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time

SAN DIEGO, July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world
leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today reported its
second quarter results for the period ended June 30, 2014. Entropic reported
second quarter net revenues of $50.2 million. This compares to net revenues of
$55.7 million in the first quarter of 2014, and $70.6 million in the second
quarter of 2013.

In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the
Company's second quarter net loss was $21.8 million, or $(0.24) per share
(basic and diluted). This compares with GAAP net loss of $23.3 million, or
$(0.26) per share (basic and diluted) in the first quarter of 2014, and GAAP
net loss of $39.9 million, or $(0.44) per share (basic and diluted) in the
second quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP net loss in the second quarter was $10.4 million, or $(0.12) per
share (basic and diluted), compared to non-GAAP net loss of $15.3 million, or
$(0.17) per share (basic and diluted) in the first quarter of 2014, and
non-GAAP net income of $0.6 million, or $0.01 (basic and diluted), in the
second quarter of 2013.

"We are actively taking steps to improve our overall financial position while
we work to ramp existing design-wins and pursue new designs that will drive
future revenue growth," said Patrick Henry, president and chief executive
officer, Entropic. "In early June, we implemented a plan to lower our
operating expenses and drive deeper engineering and operational efficiencies
in order to accelerate our path to profitability. We believe these actions,
coupled with a healthy design-win pipeline and strong product roadmap, will
allow us to transition the company to the next stage of growth."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables contain the following non-GAAP
financial measures: net (loss) income and net (loss) income per share. These
non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effects on the Statement of Operations
of all forms of stock-based compensation, transaction and integration costs,
amortization of intangible assets, losses related to equity method investment,
impairment of investment, the impact of fair value adjustments related to
contingent consideration payable in the acquisition of PLX Technology assets,
the deferred tax asset valuation allowance, the cash tax difference, IP
litigation costs and restructuring charges.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to manage the Company's
business, including setting operating budgets and executive compensation
plans. These non-GAAP measures are also used to (i) supplement the financial
results and forecasts reported to the Company's board of directors, (ii)
evaluate the Company's operating performance, (iii) compare the Company's
performance to internal forecasts, and (iv) manage the Company's business and
benchmarking performance internally. The non-GAAP measures have been made
available to stockholders consistently in the past to provide transparency on
how management manages the Company's operating performance. Management
believes that these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when
used as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating the Company's ongoing
operational performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be
considered in isolation or a substitute for, or superior to, the financial
information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and the financial
results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those
financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial
measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore
may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

per share
(1) Non-GAAP net (loss) income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of
(1)%, (1)%, and 29% for the three month periods ended June 30, 2014, March 31, 2014
and June 30, 2013, respectively, and (1)% and 24% for the six month periods ended
June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated
tax payable on our projected tax returns as a percentage of estimated annual
non-GAAP pre-tax net income (loss). We use an estimated cash tax rate to adjust for
the historical variation in the effective book tax rate associated with the
valuation allowance adjustments, the utilization of research and development tax
credits, and the utilization of loss carryforwards which currently have an overall
effect of reducing taxes payable. We believe that the cash tax rate provides a more
transparent view of our operating results. The effective tax rate used for the
purposes of calculating GAAP net loss was (1)%, 0%, and (215)% for the three month
periods ended June 30, 2014, March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively, and
(1)% and (115)% for the six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013,
(2) While litigation may arise in the ordinary course of our business, we
nevertheless consider the current IP litigation to be an unusual, non-recurring and
unplanned activity and therefore exclude this charge when presenting non-GAAP
financial measures.
(3) In June 2014, we announced a corporate restructuring plan to accelerate our path
to profitability. The restructuring plan includes the closures and consolidations of
several global facilities including facilities located in Austin, Texas; India;
Taiwan and Israel. We expect that approximately 150 positions will be eliminated in
connection with the restructuring plan, representing about 23% of our work force. We
recorded restructuring charges of $1.8 million during the three months ended June
30, 2014. We expect to incur a total restructuring charge of approximately $6.4
million, the majority of which is expected to be cash expenditures.

In June 2013, we incurred a restructuring charge of $1.8 million pursuant to a plan
to rebalance our operations in an attempt to leverage synergies from our
acquisitions and refine our business operations. This plan resulted in a reduction
of our personnel by 66 employees, or approximately 10% of our work force.
