TESSERA TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL
YEAR 2006 FINANCIAL RESULTS
- 2006 Royalties and License Fees Grew 75 Percent Versus 2005 -
San Jose, Calif., January 31, 2007 Tessera Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSRA), a leading provider of miniaturization technologies for the electronics industry, announced today its results for the fourth quarter and twelve-month period ended December 31, 2006. Additionally, in a separate release today, Tessera announced the execution of a definitive agreement with respect to the acquisition of Eyesquad, a leader in the development and design of solid-state auto-focus and optical zoom solutions for camera phones and other electronic products that integrate cameras.
Tessera posted a strong fourth quarter with revenue of $50.3 million led by royalties and license fees growth of 97 percent over the fourth quarter 2005, stated Bruce McWilliams, Tesseras chairman, president and chief executive officer. For the year, Tesseras full year 2006 revenue of $208.7 million included $99.6 million in royalties and license fees and was up 120 percent compared to 2005. Tessera exited 2006 collecting royalties on approximately 60 percent of the units shipped using its CSP technology, up from an average of 36 percent in 2005. New licensees for 2006 such as Infineon, Micron, NXP, formerly Philips Semiconductors, and Qimonda were major contributors to this growth. The licensing pipeline in our packaging, interconnect, and consumer optics business is robust, and we believe our royalties and license fees will grow roughly 55 percent in 2007 as compared to a very strong 2006.
