IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS), an international power semiconductor and IC company, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2014, which ended December 31, 2013.
Net revenues for the quarter were $89.3 million, up $25.5 million, or 40.0%, from $63.8 million in net revenues for the December 2012 quarter. Sequentially, net revenues were up $3.4 million or 4.0%, from September 2013 net revenues of $85.9 million, marking the fourth consecutive quarter of revenue growth.
For the nine months ended December 31, 2013, IXYS reported net revenues of $246.4 million, an increase of $33.3 million, or 15.6%, as compared with net revenues of $213.1 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
“The results for this quarter reflect actions we took to broaden the range of our products and technologies. We are pleased with the revenue growth, and continued our sustained investment in products that helped us penetrate new markets. IXYS is now a stronger company, with an increasing presence in Asian markets and a wider selection of integrated circuit products,” commented Dr. Nathan Zommer, CEO and Founder of IXYS.
Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $552,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, a decrease of $637,000 from the December 31, 2012 quarter, with net income of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share.
In comparing the December 31, 2013 quarter to the September 30, 2013 quarter, discrete tax items affected net income for the December quarter, as did seasonally lower sales of power semiconductors.
The December 2013 quarter non-GAAP net income, which excludes the impact of charges for the amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock compensation, was $4.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, which was an increase of $2.1 million, as compared to the non-GAAP net income for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
Net income for the nine months ended December 31, 2013 was $5.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $9.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior fiscal year. For the nine months ended December 31, 2013 non-GAAP net income, which excludes the impact of charges for the amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock compensation, was $14.1 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $13.1 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
Gross profit for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $25.8 million, or 28.9% of net revenues, as compared to gross profit of $19.0 million, or 29.7% of net revenues, for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year.
Gross profit for the nine months ended December 31, 2013 was $74.8 million, or 30.4% of net revenues, as compared to a gross profit of $66.4 million, or 31.2% of net revenues, for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $99.1 million at December 31, 2013, an increase of $3.9 million as compared to September 30, 2013. Cash generated from operations was $5.7 million. The company also declared a $0.03 per share dividend for the fifth consecutive quarter.
“As global macroeconomic conditions evolve, we are seeing pockets of strength in Asia, stability in the United States and uncharacteristic weakness in Europe. Customers remain cautious in this environment, with purchasing limited to products for immediate demand. Although semiconductor industry ordering trends remain modest, likely affected by the uncertainty in Europe, we expect a slight increase in revenues in the March 2014 quarter, as compared to revenues in the December 2013 quarter,” said Mr. Uzi Sasson, President and Chief Financial Officer of IXYS.
Included above and within the attached schedules are certain non-GAAP financial figures. During the third quarter of fiscal 2014, ended December 31, 2013, the company incurred non-cash expenses, including those associated with amortization of intangible assets and stock compensation. Adjusting the net income in the December 31, 2013 quarter to exclude the impact of amortization of intangible assets and stock compensation expenses, results in a financial presentation for the company without the effect of these non-cash charges. Management believes non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share are useful measures of operating performance. However, the non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, net income and net income per share or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Ar...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...
