Power Integrations Reports Record Quarterly Revenues and Earnings

October 30, 2013

Revenues increased 18 percent year-over-year to a record $91.7 million; non-GAAP earnings grew 45% year-over-year to a record $0.71 per diluted share; GAAP earnings were $0.54 per diluted share



Cash flow from operations was $29.0 million; company raises quarterly dividend by 25 percent to 10 cents per share effective Q1 2014

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Net revenues for the quarter were $91.7 million, up four percent from the prior quarter and 18 percent from the third quarter of 2012. GAAP net income for the quarter was $16.7 million or $0.54 per diluted share, compared with income of $0.45 per diluted share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $1.54 per share in the third quarter of 2012. GAAP gross margin for the third quarter was 53.2 percent; operating margin was 18.1 percent.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, certain charges, gains and expenses related to acquisitions and strategic investments, non-cash interest income, the tax effects of these items, and a one-time tax-related charge incurred in 2012. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2013 was $21.8 million or $0.71 per diluted share, compared with $0.61 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.49 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter was 54.2 percent; non-GAAP operating margin was 24.6 percent.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan , president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Our third-quarter results featured record revenues, with sequential growth across all four end-market categories. Compared to a year ago, sales were up 18 percent, with all four end markets contributing double-digit growth. We also reported record earnings and strong cash flow in the third quarter, fueled by the continued expansion of our gross-profit margins.

“Our fourth-quarter revenues are likely to be modestly lower compared to the third quarter due primarily to seasonal trends. Nevertheless, we are on pace for a double-digit revenue increase in 2013, substantially ahead of the growth rate of the overall analog semiconductor industry. We believe we are well positioned for further growth as we continue to increase our penetration across the broader power supply market while aggressively pursuing emerging opportunities in areas like LED lighting, rapid charging and high power.”

Additional Highlights

  • Cash flow from operations in the third quarter was $29.0 million; cash and investments increased by $35.1 million from the end of the prior quarter to a total of $180.2 million.
  • The company paid a dividend of $0.08 per share on September 30, 2013. The next dividend of $0.08 per share is to be paid on December 31, 2013 to stockholders of record as of November 29, 2013. The company’s board of directors has declared an increase in the quarterly dividend payout to $0.10 per share beginning in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Power Integrations received 24 U.S. patents and 37 non-U.S. patents during the quarter and had a total of 586 U.S. patents and 474 non-U.S. patents as of September 30, 2013.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the company's consolidated financial statements, which are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses recorded under Accounting Standard Codification 718-10, acquisition-related expenses, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the fair-value write-up of acquired inventory, certain charges and gains associated with strategic investments, non-cash interest income, the tax effects of the above items, and a one-time tax related charge incurred in the second quarter of 2012. The company uses these non-GAAP measures in its own financial and operational decision-making processes and, with respect to one measure, in setting performance targets for employee-compensation purposes. Further, the company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer an important analytical tool to help investors understand the company’s core operating results and trends, and to facilitate comparability with the operating results of other companies that provide similar non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures have certain limitations as analytical tools and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is an important component of the company’s compensation mix, and will continue to result in significant expenses in the company’s GAAP results for the foreseeable future, but is not reflected in the non-GAAP measures. Also, other companies, including companies in Power Integrations’ industry, may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this press release in Mr. Balakrishnan’s quote and under the caption “Financial Outlook” relating to the company’s projected fourth-quarter financial performance are forward-looking statements reflecting management's current expectations and beliefs. These forward-looking statements are based on current information that is, by its nature, subject to rapid and even abrupt change. Due to risks and uncertainties associated with the company's business, actual results could differ materially from those projected or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: changes in global macroeconomic conditions, which may impact the level of demand for the company’s products; potential changes and shifts in customer demand away from end products that utilize the company's integrated circuits to end products that do not incorporate the company's products; the effects of competition, which may cause the company to decrease its selling prices for its products; the outcome and cost of patent litigation, which may affect sales of the company’s products or could result in higher expenses and charges than currently expected; unforeseen costs and expenses; unfavorable fluctuations in component costs resulting from changes in commodity prices and/or the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and the Japanese yen; and the challenges inherent in integrating and forecasting the performance of acquired businesses. In addition, new product introductions and design wins are subject to the risks and uncertainties that typically accompany development and delivery of complex technologies to the marketplace, including product development delays and defects and market acceptance of the new products. These and other risk factors that may cause actual results to differ are more fully explained under the caption “Risk Factors” in the company's most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on August 1, 2013. The company is under no obligation (and expressly disclaims any obligation) to update or alter its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by the rules and regulations of the SEC.
