SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Net revenues for the quarter were $83.1 million, eight percent lower than the prior quarter and up eight percent from the first quarter of 2013. GAAP net income for the quarter was $12.4 million or $0.40 per diluted share, compared with $0.52 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.37 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2013. GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 55.3 percent; operating margin was 15.3 percent.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related amortization expenses, and the tax effects of these items. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2014 was $17.5 million or $0.56 per diluted share, compared with $0.66 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.47 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 56.4 percent; non-GAAP operating margin was 22.2 percent.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan , president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Our first-quarter revenues were less than we had expected but nevertheless grew eight percent from a year ago, while non-GAAP earnings per share grew nearly 20 percent year-over-year as our gross margin expanded and we controlled our expenses. We expect healthy sequential revenue growth in the second quarter, and we are positioned for a strong second half of 2014 as we ramp new products and continue to make progress in key growth areas such as LED lighting, rapid charging and high-power applications.”

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, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and the tax effects of these items. 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 relating to the company’s projected second-quarter 2014 financial performance and the statement that Power Integrations believes it is positioned for a strong second half of 2014 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 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 13, 2014. 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.
