Revenue from services for the first and second quarters of 2007 was $1.1 million, an increase of 11% compared to $1.0 million reported for the second quarter of 2006.
Net income for the second quarter of 2007 was $0.4 million, compared to a net loss of $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2006. Net income per share for the second quarter of 2007 was $0.02 per share, compared to net loss of $0.01 per share for the second quarter of 2006.
In the second quarter of 2007 and 2006, the Company recognized an equity-based compensation charge of $0.5 million pursuant to the adoption of SFAS 123R. Pro forma non-GAAP net income and net income per share for the second quarter of 2007, excluding the equity-based compensation expense, increased 308% and 400% to $0.9 million and $0.05, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2006.

During the second quarter of 2007, the Company concluded eight new license agreements. Six agreements were for CEVA DSP cores and platforms, one agreement was for CEVA SATA technology and one agreement was for CEVA Bluetooth 2.0+EDR technology. Target applications for customer deployment are Digital TV, DVD and HD-DVD, ultra low cost phones, 3G phones, smart phones and portable multimedia players. Geographically, three of the eight deals concluded were in the U.S., one was in Europe and four were in the Asia Pacific region.
During the quarter, CEVA concluded another major strategic licensing agreement for its newest DSP core, the CEVA-TeakLite-III. The new customer is one of the largest, branded, consumer electronics vendors in Japan that has adopted the CEVA-TeakLite-III for its next generation of integrated Digital TVs. This represents another major design win for CEVA in the home entertainment segment and continues the Company's expansion beyond the mobile market into a larger market composed of Digital TVs, HD-DVD / Blu-ray DVDs, IPTV and set-top boxes.
Gideon Wertheizer, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA, stated: "The second quarter of 2007 was a strong quarter for the main aspects of our business, including total revenue reached, the backlog and pipeline build up and the increase in royalty revenue which was 33% higher compared to the equivalent quarter last year. We are also particularly pleased with the continued success of our newest generation CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP core in penetrating the home entertainment market, as well as the strategic decision made by one of the largest European semiconductor companies to broadly use our technology over its internally developed DSP solution."
Yaniv Arieli, Chief Financial Officer of CEVA, stated: "Our revenue for the second quarter of 2007 was closer to the higher end of our guidance through a combination of strong royalties reported by our customers and good licensing performance. This revenue performance along with continued focus on our growth engines enabled us to report significant sequential profits growth. Non-GAAP pro forma net income and fully diluted EPS for the second quarter of 2007 compared to the first quarter of 2007 grew 100% and 96%, respectively. We also generated positive cash flow of approximately $0.5 million and as of June 30, 2007, CEVA's cash balances and marketable securities were $64.9 million."
