SUNNYVALE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 29, 2018 — Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 under GAAP Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606 (“ASC 606”), which superseded the revenue recognition requirements in ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605”) that was previously applicable. Rambus also reported financial results as they would have been presented under ASC 605. This ASC 605 presentation is required under the modified retrospective transition method that Rambus has chosen to adopt under ASC 606. Rambus notes that this presentation allows a more relevant comparability with prior results, which were all reported under ASC 605.

Luc Seraphin, chief executive officer of Rambus said, “This was a strong quarter that continued to reinforce our confidence in our strategy and execution to plan. As we continue to roll out products, improve operational efficiency and generate cash, we are creating the foundation for future profitable growth.”
