Anadigics cutting ~30% of workforce, issues Q2 warning

Anadigics (ANAD) is cutting 140 jobs, or ~30% of its workforce, as part of a restructuring that will feature a downsizing of the company's chip manufacturing ops.

The company expects to record $7.3M in charges ($2.3M cash), and eventually achieve over $15M/year in cost savings.

Citing weaker demand for "legacy mobile" products, Anadigics now forecasts Q2 revenue of $23M (-34% Y/Y) and EPS of -$0.10, below a consensus of $25.5M and -$0.09.

The chipmaker says it'll focus more on its growing/higher-margin telecom infrastructure IC business going forward, along with "strategic mobile markets" (presumably includes Wi-Fi front-end ICs).

Shares are halted.

Update (4:53PM ET): Shares are now down 1.9% AH.
