IDT Reports Q3 Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT® or the Company) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced results for the fiscal third quarter ended December 30, 2012.

“We delivered Q3 results within the range of our prior projections despite continued broad-based weakness in demand,” said Dr. Ted Tewksbury, president and CEO of IDT. “Our bottom line results hit the midpoint of our prior projections due to reduced operating expenses and improved product mix. We also generated healthy cash flow from operations during the quarter, highlighting the resilience of our operating model in the face of a weak macroeconomic environment.”

“Although visibility into near term demand is limited, design win activity remains strong and we expect top line growth from new product categories to accelerate in the second half of this calendar year, led by wireless power and enterprise flash controllers. In addition, we believe that improvement in our core business and continued operating expense reductions will enable us to achieve significant operating margin expansion in fiscal year 2014.”

Recent Highlights

IDT recently announced:

  • The industry’s most integrated wireless power transmitter solutions for the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) Tx-A5, Tx-A6, and Tx-A11 configurations. The new products expand IDT's portfolio of WPC Qi-compliant magnetic induction transmitters with solutions optimized for single-coil 5V and three-coil 12V applications.
  • A new RF digital step attenuator that reduces glitches by up to 95 percent in cellular base station and industrial applications, enabling customers to simplify their software interface, improve reliability, and prevent damage to expensive sub-assemblies such as power amplifiers.
  • The industry’s first low-power dual 16-bit 1.5 GSPS digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with an advanced JESD204B serial interface for multi-carrier broadband wireless applications. The new high-speed DAC delivers best-in-class dynamic performance, eases system-level cooling requirements, and simplifies board routing.
  • The industry’s first high-performance quad frequency MEMS oscillators with multiple synchronous outputs. IDT’s enhanced MEMS oscillators offer configurable outputs in an industry-standard package footprint, saving board area in communication, networking, and storage applications.
  • The availability of the industry’s first complete chipset for DDR4 load reduced dual inline memory modules (LRDIMMs). The clear advantages afforded by LRDIMMs as a speed-scalable memory technology are expected to drive adoption across a broad array of memory intensive computing and storage applications and IDT is leading the way with DDR4 LRDIMM memory interface solutions.
  • It was recognized with a product of the year award from Electronic Products Magazine and a 2012 best electronic design award from Electronic Design Magazine for its NVM Express (NVMe) enterprise flash controller. The PCIe Gen3 flash controller family provides a standard solution for PCI Express based SSDs, enabling enterprise storage and server OEMs to dramatically improve latency and throughput performance.

The following highlights the Company’s financial performance on both a GAAP and supplemental non-GAAP basis. The Company provides supplemental information regarding its operating performance on a non-GAAP basis that excludes certain gains, losses and charges which occur relatively infrequently and which management considers to be outside our core operating results. Non-GAAP results are not in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP information should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A complete reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results from continuing operations is attached to this press release.

  • Revenue from continuing operations for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $115.1 million, compared with $120.0 million reported in the same period one year ago.
  • GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $5.2 million, or a loss of $0.04 per diluted share, versus GAAP net loss of $0.9 million or a loss of $0.01 per diluted share in the same period one year ago. Fiscal third quarter 2013 GAAP results include $9.1 million in acquisition and restructuring related charges, $2.8 million in stock-based compensation, and $0.6 million in benefits from tax effects.
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $6.2 million or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $8.5 million or $0.06 per diluted share reported in the same period one year ago.
  • GAAP gross profit for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $63.0 million, or 54.7 percent, compared with GAAP gross profit of $63.9 million, or 53.2 percent, reported in the same period one year ago. Non-GAAP gross profit for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $66.7 million, or 58.0 percent, compared with non-GAAP gross profit of $65.7 million, or 54.7 percent, reported in the same period one year ago.
  • GAAP R&D expense for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $40.2 million, compared with GAAP R&D expense of $38.4 million reported in the same period one year ago. Non-GAAP R&D expense for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $37.7 million, compared with non-GAAP R&D of $34.9 million in the same period one year ago.
  • GAAP SG&A expense for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 was $27.4 million, compared with GAAP SG&A expense of $23.7 million in the same period one year ago.

Forward Looking Statements

Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements in this release, including but not limited to statements regarding demand for Company products, anticipated trends in Company sales, expenses and profits, involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Risks include, but are not limited to, global business and economic conditions, fluctuations in product demand, manufacturing capacity and costs, inventory management, competition, pricing, patent and other intellectual property rights of third parties, timely development and introduction of new products and manufacturing processes, dependence on one or more customers for a significant portion of sales, successful integration of acquired businesses and technology, availability of capital, cash flow and other risk factors detailed in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings. The Company urges investors to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 1, 2012. All forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this release and the Company disclaims any duty to update such statements.

Non-GAAP Reporting

The Company presents non-GAAP financial measures because the investor community uses non-GAAP results in its analysis and comparison of historical results and projections of the Company's future operating results. These non-GAAP results exclude restructuring-related costs, acquisition and divestiture-related charges, share-based compensation expense, results from discontinued operations, stockholder expenses and certain other expenses and benefits. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of the business. These non-GAAP results are also consistent with another way management internally analyzes IDT’s results and may be useful to investor community. The Company has reconciled non-GAAP results to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the financial tables at the end of this press release.

Reference to these non-GAAP results should be considered in addition to results that are prepared under general accepted accounting standards in the United States (GAAP), but should not be considered a substitute for results that are presented in accordance with GAAP. It should also be noted that IDT's non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
