Pixelworks Announces Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Operating Expenses and Non-GAAP EPS In-Line with Guidance
SAN JOSE, Calif., January 11, 2022 – Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of innovative video and display processing solutions, today announced preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 is expected to be between $16 million and $17 million, compared to the Company’s original guidance range of $15.5 million to $17.5 million. Additionally, the Company’s fourth quarter 2021 non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense and non-GAAP loss per share are expected to be within the Company’s original guidance ranges.
“The fourth quarter is shaping-up to be another solid quarter, further extending our sequential and year-over-year revenue growth,” commented Todd DeBonis, President and CEO of Pixelworks. “Moreover, we are entering the new year with increasing momentum and expanded engagements with tier-one mobile OEMs, which we expect to drive better than seasonal results for the first quarter of 2022.”
As previously announced, the Company will participate at the 24th Annual Needham Growth Conference and is scheduled to host a fireside chat presentation on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. PT.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release makes reference to projected non-GAAP gross profit margins, projected non-GAAP operating expenses and projected non-GAAP net loss per share, which exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring expenses, which are all 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.
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 will be included in the Company’s complete fourth quarter earnings press release and made available in the investor relations section of the Pixelworks' website.
