Fourth Quarter 2013
Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $14.0 million, an increase of 8% compared to $13.0 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2012. Fourth quarter 2013 licensing and related revenue was $7.3 million, an all-time record high, representing a 52% increase compared to $4.8 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2012. Royalty revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $6.7 million, a decrease of 18% compared to $8.2 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2012.

U.S. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $3.1 million, an increase of 14% over $2.8 million reported for the same period in 2012. U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $0.14, an increase of 17% compared to $0.12 for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $4.5 million and $0.2, respectively, representing an increase of 4% and 5%, respectively, over the $4.3 million and $0.19 reported for the fourth quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 excluded an aggregate equity-based compensation expense, net of taxes, of $1.3 million. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 excluded an aggregate equity-based compensation expense, net of taxes, of $1.2 million, and $0.3 million related to transaction costs, net of taxes, associated with the MIPS transaction.

Gideon Wertheizer, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA, stated, "We are extremely pleased with our fourth quarter results which represent the strongest licensing quarter in CEVA's history and reflects our continued success in penetrating new markets. Overall, during 2013 we made substantial progress in expanding our licensee reach beyond the cellular baseband market with our broadened technology portfolio. We signed thirty licensing agreements during the year, including seventeen first-time customers. These new licensees will serve to grow our future royalty base and diversify the end markets where our technology is deployed." 

Mr. Wertheizer continued, "While our royalty revenue for the year was down, fourth quarter royalty revenue was in line with our guidance. Looking forward, the accelerated market adoption of low-cost smartphones and volume shipments of LTE chipsets containing our DSPs are expected to drive our royalty growth."

During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company concluded eleven new license agreements, six of which were with first-time customers. Nine of the agreements were for CEVA DSP cores, platforms and software, and two agreements were for CEVA Bluetooth technology. Target applications for customer deployment are cellular baseband, imaging, vision and audio in smartphones, advanced driver assistance systems and Bluetooth connectivity.  Geographically, of the eleven license agreements signed, one was in Europe and ten were in Asia, including Japan.

Licensing and related revenue for 2013 was $22.4 million, an increase of 3% compared to $21.7 million reported for 2012.
