The company currently expects Q2 revenue to be approximately $5.0 million, with a GAAP net loss per share of $0.16 to $0.17 and a pro forma net loss per share of $0.13 to $0.14. Operating expenses will remain flat at approximately $19 million.

Transmeta hopes to become profitable in the end of the fourth quarter of the year. The further success of the company mostly depends on the success of the TM8000 aka Astro processor that is to be shipped starting from the Q3 this year.
