Inphi Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

Reports 39% Year-Over-Year Growth and 9% Sequential Growth

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications, data center and computing markets, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $33.9 million, up 9% sequentially from $31.2 million reported for the first quarter of 2014. This was up 39% year-over-year compared with $24.3 million reported for the second quarter of 2013.

Gross margin under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the second quarter of 2014 was 63.8% of revenue, compared with 63.5% of revenue for the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted common share, compared with GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or ($0.05) per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2013.

Inphi reports gross margin, net income (loss), and earnings per share in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP gross margin, net income, and earnings per share, as well as a description of the items excluded from the non-GAAP calculations, is included in the financial statements portion of this news release.

Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis for both the second quarter of 2014 and 2013 was 64.6% of revenue.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share. This compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted common share for the second quarter of 2013.

"We are pleased to report that our revenue grew to more than $33.9 million dollars during the second quarter of 2014 -- a 9% sequential increase, and an almost 40% year-over-year increase," said Ford Tamer, President and CEO of Inphi. "This is the sixth quarter in a row, where we have delivered consistent sequential revenue growth. At the same time, we have driven operating margins from 1% five quarters ago to 11% in Q2 2014, resulting in a nine-fold increase in earnings per share during the period. Equally importantly, we achieved these results while continuing to invest in research and development, effectively innovating award winning solutions for our growing list of customers around the world."

First Half 2014 Results
For the six months ended June 30, 2014, revenue was $65.1 million, compared with $46.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $1.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, on approximately 32.9 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. This compared with GAAP net loss of $9.1 million, or ($0.31) per diluted share, on approximately 29.1 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $5.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted weighted average common share outstanding, on approximately 32.9 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. This compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, or $0.01 per diluted weighted average common share outstanding.

                              INPHI CORPORATION
                 RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
        (in thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)

To supplement the audited financial data presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude stock-based compensation, abandoned office space costs and deferred tax asset valuation allowance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with GAAP. These results should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The Company believes that its non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations because it excludes charges or benefits that management considers to be outside of the Company's core operating results. The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures of gross margin, net income and earnings per share in combination with the Company's financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, provide investors with additional perspective and a more meaningful understanding of the Company's ongoing operating performance. In addition, the Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to review and assess the financial performance of the Company, to determine executive officer incentive compensation and to plan and forecast performance in future periods. The Company's non-GAAP measurements are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and are not an alternative to GAAP financial information, and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies.

(a)  Reflects the stock-based compensation expense recorded relating to
     stock-based awards. The Company excludes this item when it evaluates
     the continuing operational performance of the Company as management
     believes this GAAP measure is not indicative of its core operating
     performance.
(b)  Reflects the cost of abandoned office space. The Company excludes this
     item when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the
     Company as management believes this GAAP measure is not indicative of
     its core operating performance.
(c)  Reflects the change in valuation allowance and delta in interim period
     tax allocation from GAAP to non-GAAP related to non-GAAP adjustments.
     Starting 2014, the Company, prospectively changed its method of
     calculating income taxes on a non-GAAP basis related to considering
     $213,000 -- the quarterly amortization of a deferred tax charge on an
     ARB 51-related intercompany transfer of assets. The deferred tax charge
     relates to intercompany transfer of intellectual property in 2010 for
     which taxes were already paid. The Company decided to exclude the
     amortization from the calculation prospectively as it is strictly non-
     cash accounting amortization that will never convert into cash tax
     expense. The change is only made prospectively, therefore, a similar
     amount remains included in the comparable Q2 2013 non-GAAP tax expense.
     The Company excludes this item when it evaluates the continuing
     operational performance of the Company as management believes this GAAP
     measure is not indicative of its core operating performance.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

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...
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...
