"Second quarter revenue increased sequentially and grew 36% year-over-year, marking another consecutive quarter of strong double-digit growth and highlighted by record quarterly revenue in our mobile business," stated Todd DeBonis, President and CEO of Pixelworks. "We also experienced sustained customer demand outside of mobile, with revenue in our Projector business reaching the highest quarterly level in more than two years.

"Complementing our strong topline results, we continue to achieve notable milestones on our strategic initiatives to cultivate synergistic ecosystems for both our mobile and TrueCut Motion solutions. During the quarter, we expanded Pixelworks' collaborative engagements in mobile gaming, including our first-ever partnership with an industry-leading gaming studio to optimize their latest release of One Piece Fighting Path for high-efficiency 120 fps gaming on mobile devices. This was followed by the launch of the realme GT2 Explorer Master Edition, the first announced smartphone to incorporate our ground-breaking X7 visual processor, featuring Pixelworks' proprietary ultra-low latency MotionEngine® and low power super-resolution technology. Additionally, we announced in partnership with Lightstorm that our TrueCut Motion platform is being used to remaster two iconic films, Avatar and Titanic, in high frame rate for theatrical release later this year.

"Acknowledging the broadly accepted uncertainty related to the current macroeconomic environment, including global consumer demand and evolving supply chain dynamics, we continue to see exceptional customer interest and expanding market opportunities for Pixelworks' leading-edge video and motion processing solutions."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release makes reference to non-GAAP gross profit margins, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, which exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense which are required under GAAP as well as the tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments and the impact of non-GAAP adjustments to redeemable non-controlling interest. The press release also makes reference to and reconciles GAAP net loss and adjusted EBITDA, which Pixelworks defines as GAAP net loss attributable to Pixelworks Inc. before interest income and other, net, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, as well as the specific items listed above.

Pixelworks management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business and establish its operational goals, review its operations on a period-to-period basis, for compensation evaluations, to measure performance, and for budgeting and resource allocation. Pixelworks management believes it is useful for the Company and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information and non-GAAP financial measures to help assess the performance of Pixelworks' continuing business and to evaluate Pixelworks' future prospects. These non-GAAP measures, when reviewed together with the GAAP financial information, provide additional transparency and information for comparison and analysis of operating performance and trends. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items to facilitate management's review of the comparability of our core operating results on a period-to-period basis.

Because the Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial results as presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included in this earnings release which is available in the investor relations section of the Pixelworks' website.

Safe Harbor Statement

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements may be identified by use of terms such as "begin," "continue," "will," "expect", "believe," "anticipate" and similar terms or the negative of such terms, and include, without limitation, statements about the Company's businesses, including market movement and demand, the momentum of our mobile growth strategy, efforts to expand partnerships and adoption rates, bookings, and supply allocation. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements for purposes of this release, including any projections of revenue or other financial items or any statements regarding the plans and objectives of management for future operations. Such statements are based on management's current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's business. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Actual results could vary materially from those contained in forward looking statements due to many factors, including, without limitation: our ability to execute on our strategy; competitive factors, such as rival chip architectures, introduction or traction by competing designs, or pricing pressures; the success of our products in expanding markets; current global economic challenges; changes in the digital display and projection markets; seasonality in the consumer electronics market; lack of adoption of our TrueCut Motion platform; our efforts to achieve profitability from operations; our limited financial resources; our ability to attract and retain key personnel; and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and on our suppliers and customers. More information regarding potential factors that could affect the Company's financial results and could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements is included from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, as well as subsequent SEC filings.
