Synaptics Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

- Record March quarter revenue, up 25% year-over-year

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended March 31, 2014. 

"Our strong performance in the third quarter reflects Synaptics' continued leadership across our entire product portfolio, from touchpads to touchscreens to our new fingerprint ID products, and we were pleased to see the fingerprint ID business become accretive to our non-GAAP earnings a quarter ahead of schedule," stated Rick Bergman, President and CEO.  "We expect to close the fiscal year with another exceptional quarter. While at the start of the year we had forecast annual revenue growth to be similar to the 21% achieved last year, with the strength of the fingerprint ID business augmenting the growth of our core touch solutions, we now expect to achieve top-line growth of 37% to 40% for fiscal 2014."

Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $204.3 million, an increase of 25% compared with $163.3 million for the comparable quarter last year.  Third quarter revenue reflects the first full quarter of the fingerprint ID business. 

Further, the company substantially increased its outlook for the fingerprint ID business, resulting in an increase to contingent consideration on expected future earn-out payments.  Including the charge for change to contingent consideration of $53.0 million, GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $(40.1) million, or $(1.12) per diluted share. Net income for the comparable quarter last year of $36.4 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, included the benefit of a non-recurring, non-cash tax item of $15.8 million

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $23.7 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $27.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.) 

Third Quarter 2014 Business Metrics

  • Revenue mix from mobile and PC products was approximately 74% and 26%, respectively. Fingerprint ID products have been classified according to type of device.
  • Revenue from mobile products of $150.7 million was up 44% year-over-year. Mobile products revenue includes all touchscreen, video display, and applicable fingerprint ID products.
  • Revenue from PC products totaled $53.5 million, a decrease of 9% year-over-year.
  • Cash at March 31, 2014 was $391.5 million.

Kathy Bayless, CFO, added, "Considering our backlog of $145 million, customer forecasts, and the resulting expected product mix, we anticipate revenue to be in the range of $275 million to $295 million for the June quarter, an increase of 20% to 28% over the prior year quarter's record revenue.  The June quarter outlook reflects strong sequential growth across our product portfolio."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance.  Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items is not a measurement of the company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The company presents net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance. The company believes this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of share-based compensation charges, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company's GAAP net income.  The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share.
