Net income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis was $2.3 million, compared to net income of $1.2 million in the third quarter and $7.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.  GAAP net income per share on a diluted basis in the fourth quarter of 2007 was $0.05, compared with GAAP net income per share of $0.03 in the third quarter and $0.17 in the fourth quarter of 2006.

“MIPS fourth fiscal quarter was outstanding in several respects, “said John Bourgoin, president and CEO. “Record license revenues helped us close a fiscal year in which we enjoyed 30 percent growth over the prior year, we introduced our performance-leading 74K™ core family to considerable industry acclaim, and we completed the process of becoming current with our SEC filings.  Our licensees' unit shipments also grew a healthy 29 percent in the fiscal year.  As we enter our new fiscal year, MIPS has the strongest product base we have ever offered to our customers.”
