SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015. Net revenues for the fourth quarter were $87.3 million, down two percent from the prior quarter and up one percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Net income was $12.7 million or $0.44 per diluted share, compared to $0.39 in the prior quarter and $0.48 in the fourth quarter of 2014. Cash flow from operations for the fourth quarter was $24.8 million.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets and other acquisition-related expenses, the tax effects of these items, and a tax benefit recognized in 2014. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $16.9 million or $0.58 per diluted share, compared with $0.55 in the prior quarter and $0.59 in the fourth quarter of 2014.

For the full year, net revenues were $344.0 million, down one percent from the prior year. Net income for the year was $39.1 million or $1.32 per diluted share, compared to $1.93 in the prior year. Non-GAAP net income for 2015 was $2.03 per diluted share, compared to $2.40 in the prior year. Cash flow from operations for the year was $92.2 million, compared to $85.6 million in the prior year.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Despite challenging economic conditions and a steep year-over-year decline in revenues from the PC market, quarterly revenues grew modestly from a year ago, and we generated nearly $25 million in cash flow from operations for the quarter. While we expect the March quarter to be sequentially lower due to seasonal factors, recent order trends and design wins point to strong sequential growth in the second quarter. The InnoSwitch™ product cycle continues to gain steam, and we have a promising pipeline of innovative new products on the way for key growth areas such as rapid charging, efficient lighting, renewable energy and high-power industrial 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 ASC 718-10, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the write-up of acquired inventory, acquisition expenses, severance and transition expenses, the tax effects of these items, and a tax benefit recognized in 2014. The company uses these measures in its own financial and operational decision-making 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 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 regarding the company’s forecast for its first-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 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 including its InnoSwitch 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; and unfavorable fluctuations in component costs or operating expenses resulting from changes in commodity prices and/or exchange rates. 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 October 30, 2015. 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.
