CEVA, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2005 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif. - October 26, 2005 - CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA;
LSE: CVA), the leading licensor of digital signal processor (DSP) cores,
multimedia, GPS and storage platforms to the semiconductor industry, today
announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30,

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2005 was $8.4 million, a
decrease of 14% compared to $9.7 million reported for the third quarter of
2004. Third quarter of 2005 licensing revenue was $5.7 million, a decrease
of 18% from the third quarter of 2004.

Third quarter of 2005 royalty revenue was $1.5 million, a decrease of
5% compared to $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2004. Revenue from
services was $1.2 million for the third quarters of 2005 and 2004.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2005 was $0.5 million, compared to
net income of $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2004. Net loss per
share for the third quarter of 2005 was $0.03 per share compared to net
income of $0.03 per share for the third quarter of 2004. Results for the
third quarter of 2005 included a reorganization charge of $1.7 million
recorded in the operating expenses associated with leased facility
requirements and a gain of $1.5 million reported in interest and other
income related to the disposal of an investment. The reorganization charge
is associated with the previously announced plans to reduce the Company's
operating expenses, primarily those related to general and administrative

Pro forma net loss and pro forma net loss per share for the third
quarter of 2005, excluding the effect of the reorganization charge and the
gain on investment described above would have been $0.4 million and $0.02,

The Company believes that this pro forma presentation of results and
net loss per share is useful to investors in comparing the results for the
third quarter of 2005 to the same quarter of 2004, because it excludes
items that management does not consider meaningful for purposes of
analyzing the Company's operating results and making budget-planning
decisions. Specifically, the Company's management believes the exclusion
of the reorganization charge and the gain from disposal of an investment
is useful to investors because such charges and gains may not be
indicative of the Company's core operating results when comparing the
third quarters of 2004 and 2005.

"The third quarter was a good indicator of our product strategy and
focus." said Gideon Wertheizer, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA. "We
signed five new license agreements in the quarter, bringing our total to
17 for the first nine months of 2005. Two of the license agreements signed
in the quarter were for our flagship CEVA-X DSP core. Both of these
licensees are leading companies in the Asia Pacific region and both have
plans to use our CEVA-X DSP core and multimedia technologies for next
generation 3G phones. CEVA-X continues to be a strong growth driver for
the Company, with 10 licensees to date. Our customers are benefiting from
the scalability, performance and the low power which CEVA-X offers. It
also powers our new mobile multimedia solution, the Mobile-Media2000."

Wertheizer added, "Recently, we expanded our serial storage platform
offering with the addition of our Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) solution, the
industry's first open-foundry IP core for SAS. This technology is evolving
and becoming the storage interface of choice for emerging enterprise
applications. The compatibility of this technology with Serial ATA
provides customers the ability to develop enterprise storage systems to
meet high performance and low cost specifications. We believe that Serial
Attached SCSI shows strong potential for growth and we recognize CEVA-SAS
as a valuable addition to our IP portfolio."
