Vicor Corporation Reports Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2014

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. These results will be discussed later today at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, during management's quarterly investor conference call. The details for the call are presented below.

Regarding the second quarter's performance, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As expected, Vicor experienced mixed results for the period, as improvement across the Brick Business Unit was offset by the anticipated decline in VI Chip shipments associated with a major product transition underway by VI Chip's largest datacenter customer. Higher unit volumes and a positive shift in mix contributed to sequential strength for the BBU. Similarly, Picor saw growth driven by its new line of point of load regulators. However, the consequences of the product transition for VI Chip, along with ongoing litigation expenses, caused us to record a loss for the quarter, albeit smaller than the prior quarter's loss. We are encouraged by the recovery of bookings, which increased 14.6% sequentially, and by customer response to new VI Chip and Picor products targeting opportunities for which our solutions offer highly differentiated performance."

Revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased to $53,361,000, compared to $46,865,000 for the corresponding period a year ago, and increased from $53,233,000 for the first quarter of 2014. 

Gross margin increased to $22,662,000 for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $18,461,000 for the corresponding period a year ago, but decreased from $22,792,000 for the first quarter of 2014. Gross margin, as a percentage of revenue increased to 42.5% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 39.4% for the second quarter of 2013, but decreased on a sequential basis from 42.8% for the first quarter of 2014. 

Net loss for the second quarter was ($4,835,000), or ($0.13) per share, compared to a net loss of ($4,616,000), or ($0.12) per share, for the corresponding period a year ago and a net loss of ($5,378,000), or ($0.14) per share, for the first quarter of 2014. 

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014, increased by 20.0% to $106,594,000 from $88,811,000 for the corresponding period a year ago. Net loss for the six month period was ($10,213,000), or ($0.26) per share, compared to a net loss of ($9,606,000), or ($0.24) per diluted share, for the corresponding period a year ago. 

For the first six months ended 2014, no tax benefit can be recognized for the majority of the Company's losses due to a full valuation allowance against all domestic deferred tax assets. For the first six months of 2013, a net income tax benefit was recorded due to an increase in net federal deferred tax assets not covered by a valuation allowance at that time, a potential net operating loss carryback for federal income tax purposes and the recognition of the full federal research and development tax credit for 2012 during the first quarter. On January 2, 2013, Congress passed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, extending the research and development tax credit for both 2012 and 2013. 

Total backlog at the end of the second quarter was $45,648,000, compared to $41,562,000 at the end of the first quarter, and $44,659,000 at the end of 2013.

Depreciation and amortization for the second quarter of 2014 was approximately $2,411,000, and capital additions totaled $1,927,000. For the first six months of 2014, depreciation and amortization was $4,854,000 and capital additions totaled $3,481,000, compared to $5,028,000 and $2,543,000, respectively, for the first six months of 2013. Cash and cash equivalents increased by $498,000 to approximately $50,805,000 at the end of the second quarter of 2014 from $50,307,000 at the end of the first quarter of 2014.

With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
We’re no longer looking to the future for the IoT wave. It’s no longer a distant dream but a reality that has arrived. It’s now time to make sure the industry is in alignment to meet the IoT growing pains – cooperate and collaborate as well as innovate. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, will examine the key ingredients to IoT success and identify solutions to challenges the industry is facing. The deep industry expertise be...
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will present a new approach where business and development users collaborate – each using tools appropriate to their goals and expertise – to build mo...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...
The Internet of Everything (IoE) brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom. IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gary Hall, Chief Technology Officer, Federal Defense at Cisco S...
For years, we’ve relied too heavily on individual network functions or simplistic cloud controllers. However, they are no longer enough for today’s modern cloud data center. Businesses need a comprehensive platform architecture in order to deliver a complete networking suite for IoT environment based on OpenStack. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dhiraj Sehgal from PLUMgrid will discuss what a holistic networking solution should really entail, and how to build a complete platform that is scalable...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...
SYS-CON Media announced today that XebiaLabs launched a popular blog feed on DevOps Journal with close to 2,000 story reads in less than a day.

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use c...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...
