Transmeta turns a profit!

Anyone need a LongRun license?

Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of a toxic silicon bonfire, Transmeta has turned in a profit. The former CPU designer posted record revenue of $24.7m in 2Q 2005, and a net income of $6.8m. Transmeta also deferred $15.5m worth of revenue.

Well, maybe Phoenix analogies are a little premature. It's the first reporting period since the company restructured and abandoned the chip OEM business to concentrate on IP licensing. But it's a marked improvement on the preceeding quarter, which grossed $6.9m, and the corresponding quarter a year ago, which grossed $6m. This time last year Transmeta was burning its way through the coffers, with a negative cash flow of $20.4m. It's managed to turn that into a positive cash flow of $4.8m.

IP contributed $10m in revenue, and service revenues hit $7.6m.

Transmeta CFO Mark Kent said he expected the company to post break even or better cash flow for the second half of the year, and raised the guidance. ®
