Q22003 Income Statement

SAN JOSE, Calif. - July 23, 2003 - Power Integrations, Inc. (NASDAQ:POWI) today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2003.

Net revenues for the second quarter of 2003 were $29.8 million compared with $27.1 million in the second quarter of 2002 and $29.1 million in the first quarter of 2003. Net income for the second quarter was $4.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. This compares with net income of $2.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2002 and net income of $3.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2003.

"We achieved strong financial results in the second quarter, despite significant weakness in the cell phone market, which clearly demonstrates that our diversification strategy is working," said Balu Balakrishnan, president and chief executive officer of Power Integrations. "Revenue growth was driven primarily by market penetration in the consumer and computer markets, which more than offset substantial weakness in the communications market.

"We dramatically improved our manufacturing cost structure in the last year," said Mr. Balakrishnan. "These improvements enabled our net income to nearly double while revenue grew 10 percent year-over-year."

Other highlights include:

  • High-level of design wins for TOPSwitch-GX and TinySwitch-II in all our end markets.
  • DPA-Switch now has low-volume design wins in all four targeted applications: telecom/networking infrastructure, digital phones, servers, and industrial.
  • Started production shipment to a top 10 cell phone OEM on a high-volume LinkSwitch design, which replaces a linear transformer. This is a new end-customer for Power Integrations.
  • PC standby related revenue increased 40% year-over-year, primarily driven by the one-watt energy efficiency initiative.
  • Added a record 10 U.S. patents, bringing the totals to 70 U.S. and 58 foreign patents. This represents an increase of 41 U.S. patents since the beginning of 2002.
