Power Integrations Reports Third-Quarter Financial Results

October 25, 2018

GAAP earnings were $0.59 per diluted share; non-GAAP earnings were $0.77 per diluted share; revenues were $110.1 million

Board of directors authorizes use of $80 million for share repurchases

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. Net revenues for the third quarter were $110.1 million, an increase of one percent from the prior quarter and a decrease of one percent from the third quarter of 2017. Net income for the quarter was $17.7 million or $0.59 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.51 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.54 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2017. Cash flow from operations was $23.2 million for the quarter.

In addition to its GAAP results, the company provided certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and the tax effects of these items. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2018 was $23.2 million or $0.77 per diluted share, compared with $0.74 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $0.78 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2017.

Commented Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations: “Although revenues fell short of our expectations, we delivered healthy earnings driven by a slightly better-than-expected gross margin and lower-than-expected operating expenses. We are projecting lower revenues in the fourth quarter reflecting ongoing inventory reductions across the supply chain and softer demand in China, particularly in the appliance market. Nevertheless, we remain optimistic about the growth opportunities ahead of us in 2019 and beyond. As a reflection of our confidence, our board has allocated an additional $80 million for share repurchases – the largest buyback program in our history.”

Additional Highlights

  • Power Integrations repurchased approximately 152,000 shares of its common stock during the third quarter, utilizing $11 million and exhausting the company’s repurchase authorization. The company’s board of directors has authorized the use of an additional $80 million for share repurchases, subject to pre-determined price/volume parameters.
  • The company paid a dividend of $0.16 per share on September 28, 2018. A dividend of $0.16 per share is scheduled to be paid on December 31, 2018, to stockholders of record as of November 30, 2018.
  • Power Integrations was issued ten U.S. patents during the third quarter of 2018.

Financial Outlook

The company issued the following forecast for the fourth quarter of 2018:

  • Revenues are expected to be $97 million plus or minus $3 million.
  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 50.5 percent and 51 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be between 51.5 percent and 52 percent. (The difference between the expected GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins is composed of approximately 0.7 percentage points from amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and 0.3 percentage points from stock-based compensation.)
  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $42 million and $42.5 million; non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $35.5 million and $36 million. (Non-GAAP expenses are expected to exclude approximately $6 million of stock-based compensation and $0.5 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.)

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 (including in-place lease intangible assets) and the tax effects of these items. The company uses these measures in its financial and operational decision-making and, with respect to one measure, in setting performance targets for compensation purposes. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer important analytical tools to help investors understand its operating results, and to facilitate comparability with the results of companies that provide similar measures. These non-GAAP measures have 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. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures are attached to this press release.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The above statements in Mr. Balakrishnan’s quote and under the caption “Financial Outlook” regarding the company’s forecast for its 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 statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: changes in global macroeconomic conditions, including changing tariffs and uncertainty regarding trade negotiations, 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’s revenues to decrease or 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 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 14, 2018. 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.
