Xperi Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results


Xperi Corporation (NASDAQ:XPER) (the "Company" or "we") today announced
financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

"During the second quarter, we continued to make progress on our
financial goals for the year and our long-term targets. We delivered
billings in line with our expectations and lower than expected operating
expenses which generated $34.6 million in operating cash flow. In
product licensing, we made significant progress around a number of
strategic initiatives, including the expected commercial launch of DTS
Connected Radio with a global automotive brand in 2019," said Jon
Kirchner, chief executive officer of Xperi. "On the IP licensing side,
several licensing discussions have progressed positively over the past
quarter, we have added new engagements to the pipeline, and we believe
we are well positioned to resolve at least one of our outstanding
licensing discussions prior to the end of the year."

Billings reflect amounts in an accounting period invoiced to customers,
less any credits issued to or paid to customers, plus amounts due under
certain licensing-related contractual arrangements that may not be
subject to an invoice. Management evaluates the Company's financial

billings and cash receipts from licensing activity, and believes
billings is an important metric to provide to readers of our financial
results. Billings may vary materially from revenue recorded under U.S.

financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial
results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those
financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP
financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently
from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures
