The Company and its Board of Directors believe that these products have excellent growth potential.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2011
NeoMagic Corporation (NMGC.PK), the pioneer of embedded memory and logic technology, announced today that it will evaluate all strategic alternatives regarding the future of the Company. It had previously announced a new plan for the Company’s future growth, which it will continue to review and evaluate. The strategic plan focuses on development of a new suite of products, specifically for the USB 3.0 markets.
NeoMagic’s strategic plan focuses on development of USB 3.0 based semiconductors, specifically UFD (flash drive) and SSD (solid state drive) controllers. The Company and its Board of Directors believe that these products have excellent growth potential. The overall market for USB flash drives continues to grow rapidly in SuperSpeed segments. According to In-Stat, adoption of SuperSpeed USB peripherals in significant numbers will begin in 2012 when it is widely integrated into core logic of PCs. In-Stat predicts that SuperSpeed UFDs will grow from 30 million units in 2011 to 225 million units in 2014.
The Company continues to focus on raising funds to develop these new products and on exploring new strategic relationships.
The Company issued an 8-K today stating that it will temporarily suspend filing of its financial results as required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Currently, the Company has chosen to use its limited resources for the continued operations of the Company and fundraising efforts rather than the expenses required to have its independent registered public accounting firm audit its financial statements in order to file financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company plans to continue to provide updates during this period.
The Company recently provided an update on its current performance, which it is reiterating today:
NeoMagic’s gross product revenue increased between fourth quarter fiscal year 2011, ended January 30th and first quarter fiscal year 2012, ending May 1st. The Company expects revenue to continue to increase between first quarter fiscal year 2012 and the second quarter of the same fiscal year, as full shipments to its primary customer resumed in April 2011.
