NETLIST REPORTS 2007 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

IRVINE, CA (May 10, 2007) . . . Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2007.  These results are in line with the preliminary results that were announced April 16.

Revenues for the 2007 first quarter were $37.5 million compared with $26.0 million in the first quarter ended April 1, 2006, and gross margin for the quarter was 14.5 percent, up from 9.8 percent in the corresponding prior-year period.  Net income for the 2007 first quarter was $631,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $242,000, or a $0.02 loss per diluted share, in the corresponding prior-year period.  Fully diluted weighted-average shares outstanding for this year’s first quarter were 21,425,000, compared with 10,753,000 in the corresponding prior-year period.  The increase was due to the Company’s initial public offering (IPO).  These results include stock-based compensation expense of $328,000 in the first quarter of 2007 and $73,000 in the first quarter of 2006.

Chief Executive Officer Chuck Hong said that the Company is pushing forward with its principal strategic focus of developing high-performance memory subsystems that offer a superior value proposition to its OEM customers and targeting new application markets.

“While it is difficult to predict the precise duration of the market conditions and customer ordering patterns that impacted the Company in the first quarter,” he said, “we are well positioned to push forward with numerous programs that will bring high-end memory subsystem products to market in the second half of 2007.”

As of March 31, 2007, cash, cash equivalents and investments in marketable securities were $34.7 million, total assets were $73.6 million, working capital was $40.2 million, total long-term debt was $1.0 million, and stockholders’ equity was $51.2 million.
