First Quarter Results:
Revenues for the first quarter of 2006 were $51,952,000, an increase of 29% from revenues of $40,163,000 for the first quarter of 2005. Net income for the first quarter was $5,638,000, an increase of 13% from net income of $5,007,000 for the first quarter of 2005. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the first quarter of 2006 were $0.18, an increase of 6% from $0.17 for the first quarter of 2005.
Pro Forma Results:
Pro forma net income and diluted EPS for the first quarter of 2006, excluding the impact of equity-based compensation expense as required upon adoption of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123R, "Share Based Payment" ("SFAS 123(R)"), were $8,044,000 and $0.26, respectively, representing an increase of 61% and 53% from the first quarter of 2005, respectively.
Eli Ayalon, Chairman and CEO of DSP Group, stated: "The first quarter of 2006 was another strong quarter for DSP Group, our revenues increased by 29% as compared to 2005, and the overall financial results of the Company reflect the continued strength of our business. Moreover, strong demand for our products during the first quarter of 2006, coupled with encouraging forecasts from our marketing channels, give us good visibility into the second quarter of 2006 and increase our confidence in the growth projections of the company for 2006.
The Company believes that the pro forma presentation of net income and diluted EPS presented in this press release is useful to investors in comparing results for the quarter ended March 31, 2006 to the same period during 2005, because results for the first quarter of 2005 did not include equity-based compensation expenses relating to SFAS 123(R). Further, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand how the expenses associated with the application of SFAS 123(R) are reflected on its statements of income.
