Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2016 were $3.5 million and $0.17, respectively, representing a 115% and 113% increase, respectively, over the $1.6 million and $0.08 reported for the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2016 excluded (a) equity-based compensation expense of $1.4 million, net of taxes, and (b) the impact of the amortization of acquired intangibles and other costs of $0.3 million associated with the acquisition of RivieraWaves.

During the quarter, CEVA completed eleven license agreements. Six of the agreements were for CEVA DSP cores, platforms and software and five of the agreements were for CEVA connectivity IPs. Of the eleven agreements signed during the quarter, ten were for non-baseband applications, and three were with first time customers for CEVA. Target applications for customer deployment are vision in smartphones, advanced audio for wireless speakers and sound bars and low power Bluetooth connectivity for hearing aid headsets and a variety of IoT devices. Geographically, four of the agreements signed were in the U.S, three were in Europe and four were in the APAC.

Yaniv Arieli, Chief Financial Officer of CEVA, stated: “In addition to another strong licensing quarter, our market share expansion in LTE continues, with a record thirty five million shipped units reported in the quarter, resulting in 31% year-over-year royalty revenue growth. Reflecting our confidence in our business, we repurchased approximately 180,000 shares of our common stock during the quarter for an aggregate consideration of approximately $3.4 million. At the end of the quarter, our cash balance, marketable securities and bank deposits totaled $137 million.”
