Audience has announced that it's unlikely that Apple will use its technology in the next generation iPhone tanking its stock by over 50% in after hours trading.

Here's the announcement:

-
Audience sells processors and licenses its processor IP to Apple Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, OEM) for inclusion in the OEM's mobile phones pursuant to a Master Development and Supply Agreement (MDSA). Pursuant to a statement of work under the MDSA, amended in March 2012, Audience developed and licensed a new generation of processor IP for use in the OEM's devices. However, the OEM is not obligated to use Audience's processor IP.

Audience now believes that it is unlikely that the OEM will enable Audience's processor IP in its next generation mobile phone. Audience is not aware of any intended changes by this OEM to its use of Audience's processors or processor IP in prior generations of the OEM's mobile phones.

Audience recognizes royalty revenue from the license of its processor IP one quarter in arrears of the sale of the device, when it has received a royalty report from its OEM. As a result, Audience does not expect any impact on its business outlook for the third fiscal quarter from the situation described above. The revenue and net income impact of the OEM's next generation mobile phone would first affect Audience's financial results one quarter after the OEM commences end customer sales of its mobile phones.
