ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

OVERVIEW

The terms "we," "our," "ours," "us" and "Company" refer to ANADIGICS, Inc. We are a global leader in the design and manufacture of radio frequency semiconductor solutions for Infrastructure and Mobile applications. Infrastructure is comprised of products for the following applications: CATV, small cell, WiFi, M2M, optical and other general RF applications. Mobile is comprised of WiFi and Cellular products that primarily address the smartphone, handset and tablet markets.

Our CATV line amplifiers, reverse amplifiers, and edgeQAM amplifiers provide the critical link in CATV network infrastructure devices, as well as set-top boxes and cable modems. Our small-cell power amplifiers enable 3G and 4G connectivity in picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE). Our WiFi power amplifiers and FEICs are optimized for the latest standards, including 802.11n and 802.11ac, enabling wireless LAN connectivity for infrastructure, multimedia and mobile devices, such as modems, routers, access points, set-top boxes, televisions, gaming consoles, smartphones, tablets, and notebooks. Our cellular power amplifiers enable handsets, smartphones, tablets, and datacards, as well as M2M, automotive and industrial devices to access 3G and 4G wireless networks. We believe that our solutions are well positioned to address these market dynamics and will enable us to deliver value in the CATV infrastructure, small cell, WiFi, and cellular communications markets.

Our business strategy is focused on enabling communications connectivity with RF solutions that offer greater performance and integration to enhance the user's experience. We are a customer-centric organization that works closely with leading equipment manufacturers, such as OEMs and ODMs. We also partner with industry-leading chipset providers where our functionality enhances their reference designs. These relationships enable us to provide targeted applications expertise that helps reduce time-to-market and design new products that target emerging trends in the market.

We are focused on the design and manufacture of differentiated RF semiconductors. Many of our products leverage proven MESFET, high-performance GaN, and patented InGaP-Plus™ technologies. Our MESFET process technology ensures outstanding performance and superior reliability to minimize field failures and extend service life. GaN technology enables exceptional performance, especially for output stages that require high power and linearity. InGaP-Plus technology allows unique architectures that combine HBT amplifying structures and pHEMT RF switches on the same die. We believe that our products cost-effectively enhance RF reliability, performance, and overall functionality.

Our six-inch diameter GaAs fab located at our corporate headquarters in Warren, New Jersey, has been operational since 1999. In addition, we have foundry agreements that expand our wafer fabrication capability.

In June 2014, we announced a strategic restructuring plan to better address growth opportunities in infrastructure markets and to lower our operating costs. The plan includes expanding our presence in the infrastructure space and reducing the fixed costs associated with certain legacy mobile activities through a resizing of our staff and manufacturing capability. The restructuring plan and other related actions are anticipated to be complete by the end of 2014.

In connection with this restructuring plan, a workforce reduction will eliminate approximately 140 positions throughout the Company, or approximately 35% of our workforce, during the second and third quarters of 2014. Approximately 40% of the affected employees were notified in June 2014, resulting in the Company recording a restructuring charge of $0.7 million during the second quarter of 2014, covering severance, related benefits and other costs. An approximate $1.8 million workforce reduction charge is expected to be recorded in the third quarter of 2014. The workforce reduction, along with other cost reduction actions, were undertaken with a view to achieving annualized savings of approximately $15 million.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company reviewed and identified certain surplus manufacturing fixed assets and recorded a restructuring charge of $3.7 million to write down certain assets to their current market value based on expected cash proceeds for the sale of these fixed assets. As of June 28, 2014, net fixed assets in the amount of $3.5 million have been classified as Assets held for sale within Current assets on the Condensed consolidated balance sheets. Subsequent to June 28, 2014, certain of the assets held for sale have been sold, resulting in approximate proceeds and gain on sale of $1.7 million and $1.5 million, respectively.

Additional charges to the second quarter of 2014 further include a $2.1 million charge to Cost of sales for inventory write-downs on certain excess Mobile inventory.

We believe our markets, particularly in the Mobile business, are, and will continue to remain, competitive which could result in quarterly volatility in our net sales, average selling prices, and market share.

NET SALES. Net sales decreased 32.7% during the second quarter of 2014 to $23.3 million from $34.6 million in the second quarter of 2013. For the six months ended June 28, 2014, net sales were $46.5 million, a 23.6% decrease from net sales of $60.9 million for the six months ended June 29, 2013. The net sales decreases primarily resulted from a decrease in market demand for our Mobile cellular and WiFi products, slightly offset by increased Infrastructure product sales.

Sales of Infrastructure products increased 11.7% during the second quarter of 2014 to $10.2 million from $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. For the six months ended June 28, 2014, net sales of Infrastructure products increased 17.9% to $19.4 million from $16.4 million for the six months ended June 29, 2013. The increases in sales were primarily due to increased demand in CATV and small cell infrastructure markets.

Sales of Mobile products decreased 48.6% during the second quarter of 2014 to $13.1 million from $25.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. For the six months ended June 28, 2014, net sales of Mobile products decreased 39.0% to $27.1 million from $44.5 million for the six months ended June 29, 2013. The decreases in sales were primarily due to decreased demand for our cellular and WiFi mobile products.

GROSS MARGIN. Gross margin during the second quarter of 2014 increased to 2.8% of net sales from 0.9% of net sales in the second quarter of 2013. For the six months ended June 28, 2014, gross margin improved to 6.3% of net sales from
(0.7)% of net sales for the six months ended June 29, 2013. Non-recurring period charges included $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2014 for excess inventory write-downs on Mobile products, $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 from customer cost reimbursement and power interruption costs and $1.9 million in the first half of 2013 inclusive of first quarter production ramp costs. After allowing for the aforementioned non-recurring charges, increases in gross margin during 2014 were primarily due to an increase in Infrastructure product mix and manufacturing cost improvements achieved from restructuring.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. Company-sponsored research and development expenses decreased 23.0% to $7.3 million during the second quarter of 2014 from $9.4 million during the second quarter of 2013. Company sponsored research and development expenses for the six months ended June 28, 2014 decreased 19.7% to $15.8 million from $19.7 million during the six months ended June 29, 2013. The decreases were primarily due to cost savings achieved from restructuring and improved spending focus on our key projects.

SELLING AND ADMINISTRATIVE. Selling and administrative expenses decreased 27.0% to $4.5 million during the second quarter of 2014 from $6.2 million during the second quarter of 2013. Selling and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 28, 2014 decreased 22.4% to $9.7 million from $12.5 million during the six months ended June 29, 2013. The decreases were primarily due to savings achieved from restructuring and ongoing cost reduction actions.

RESTRUCTURING CHARGES. During the three and six months ended June 28, 2014, we implemented workforce reductions that eliminated approximately 60 and 100 positions, respectively, throughout the Company, and recorded restructuring charges of $0.7 million and $2.1 million, respectively, for severance, related benefits and other costs. We are implementing further workforce reductions in the third quarter which will eliminate approximately another 80 positions, and result in a workforce reduction charge of approximately $1.8 million to be recorded in the third quarter of 2014.

During the three and six months ended June 28, 2014, Restructuring charges also included a $3.7 million fixed assets restructuring charge to write down certain surplus manufacturing assets to their current market value based on expected cash proceeds for the sale of these fixed assets.

During the six months ended June 29, 2013, we implemented a workforce reduction that eliminated approximately 25 positions throughout the Company which resulted in recording a restructuring charge of $1.9 million for severance, related benefits and other costs.

OTHER INCOME, NET. During the three and six months ended June 28, 2014, other income of $0.5 and $1.7 million, respectively, were primarily from redemption proceeds received on two of our auction rate securities (ARS) which were in excess of our amortized cost basis. For the three and six months ended June 29, 2013, other income of $1.5 million was primarily from redemptions received on two of our ARS which were in excess of our amortized cost basis.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of June 28, 2014, we had $16.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, of which $7.0 million was drawn from our revolving line of credit, and $3.0 million of which is classified as "Restricted" as a compensating balance for our credit facility.

Operating activities used $14.0 million in cash during the six month period ended June 28, 2014, primarily as a result of our operating results adjusted for non-cash expenses. Investing activities provided $2.8 million of cash during the six month period ended June 28, 2014 consisting principally of net sales of marketable securities of $3.5 million, partly offset by purchases of fixed assets of $0.7 million. Financing activities provided $4.0 million from drawings on our working capital credit line.

We had unconditional purchase obligations at June 28, 2014 of approximately $4.3 million.

We believe that our existing sources of capital, including our existing cash, will be adequate to satisfy operational needs and anticipated capital needs for at least the next twelve months. We may elect to finance all or part of our future capital requirements through additional equity or debt financing. There can be no assurance that such additional financing would be available on satisfactory terms.

IMPACT OF RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Changes to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America are established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in the form of Accounting Standards Updates (ASU) to the FASB's Accounting Standards Codification.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which will replace most current revenue recognition guidance. The core principle of the ASU is that an entity should recognize revenue for the transfer of goods or services equal to the amount that it expects to be entitled to receive for those goods or services. It also requires additional disclosures about the nature, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments. The guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption prohibited. We are in the process of evaluating the impact of this guidance on our consolidated financial statements.

In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of an Entity, which changes the criteria for determining which disposals can be presented as discontinued operations and modifies the related disclosure requirements. Under the new guidance, a discontinued operation is defined as a disposal of a component or group of components that represents a strategic shift that has, or will have, a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results. The revised guidance is effective prospectively for fiscal and interim periods beginning on or after December 15, 2014. Adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
