MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of signal processing IP for smarter, connected devices, today announced that its revenues for the fourth quarter of 2016 are approximately $21.2 million, an all-time high, and above the high end of the company's previously issued revenue guidance of $18.5 to $19.5 million. Earnings per share exceeded the previously stated guidance range of 15-17 cents on a GAAP basis and 24-26 cents on a non-GAAP basis (*). Strong licensing demand across the CEVA technology portfolio generated more than $8 million in licensing revenue for the quarter. On royalties, a one-time catch-up payment of approximately $1.1 million from a handset baseband customer relating to prior quarters, along with good demand for CEVA-powered products, drove royalty revenue close to $13 million for the quarter.
