Entropic Communications Sees Upside to Revenue and EPS in Q2
Strength in Connectivity Products and Improvements to Set-Top Box System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Supply Chain Constraints Drive Better Than Expected Revenue Growth

SAN DIEGO, June 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced today expected revenue in the second quarter of 2012 will be stronger than the Company's previous outlook, which was provided on April 24, 2012.

Entropic now expects second quarter revenue to range between $81 million and $82 million. The Company's previous guidance for the second quarter was for revenue to range between $75 million and $77 million.

"We are seeing better than expected results for our Connectivity products with strong HD attach rates and upgrades at Tier-1 Pay-TV service providers driving increased demand for our home networking and direct broadcast satellite solutions," said Patrick Henry, president and chief executive officer, Entropic Communications.  "Also, through impressive execution by our operations team and supply chain partners, we were able to resolve some key supply chain constraints related to our set-top box SoC business ahead of schedule; leading to higher revenue for the set-top box SoC products versus our initial expectations entering the quarter."

The Company expects GAAP earnings per share for the second quarter of approximately $0.00 and non-GAAP earnings per share of approximately $0.08. The Company's previous guidance was for non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.03.

Entropic expects to release financial results for the second quarter 2012, and host a conference call for analysts and investors on August 1, 2012.  At that time, the Company will review its quarterly results and provide an outlook for the third quarter of 2012.  Details on the conference call will be announced, prior to that date.
