CEVA, Inc. to refrain from further proposals to acquire MIPS operating business

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 17, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores for the mobile, portable and consumer electronic markets, announced today that it would not submit any further proposal to acquire the operating business of MIPS Technologies, Inc.

Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA, commented: "While CEVA's Board of Directors and management believed there was strategic merit in the combination of CEVA with MIPS, further increasing the purchase price would not meet our financial objectives.  We believe it is in the best interests of our shareholders that our available cash be reserved for other potential opportunities in the future. As part of our corporate business strategy, we will continue to seek and evaluate complementary technologies and businesses that will meet our strategic and financial objectives."

CEVA's dominant leadership position in DSP licensing has enabled the company to strategically expand its addressable markets in recent years to leverage on the major trends in DSP processing. Today, the company offers a comprehensive portfolio of DSPs and platform IP for communications & connectivity, audio & voice and imaging & vision, all of which offer CEVA's customers significant cost efficiencies and time-to-market savings for next generation products. With more than 40% market share worldwide today in the cellular baseband market, CEVA's market leadership is set to carry forward into the LTE, and LTE-Advanced markets, with more than 20 design wins secured to date.
