Exar Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results Results In Line With Expectations

FREMONT, Calif., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Exar Corporation (Nasdaq: EXAR), a leading supplier of analog mixed-signal and data management products, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 ended July 1, 2012.  The Company reported revenue of $29.3 million for the first quarter and diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis of $0.03.

"Our financial results for the first quarter were within expectations. Revenue growth was 5% and our earnings per share of $0.03 on a non-GAAP basis improved by $0.13 compared to the prior quarter. On a non-GAAP basis our gross margin was 47.2%, which represents a 720 basis point improvement over the prior quarter, which was negatively impacted by excess inventory.  Our non-GAAP operating expenses were $12.9 million, down from $16.5 million in the prior quarter," commented company president and CEO Louis DiNardo.

"During the first quarter we benefited from our participation in the Big Data market where our data compression and security products are used in data warehousing, data analytics and cloud computing to improve system performance and reduce cost.  Additionally, we saw growth in Communications product revenue and stability in our Connectivity business," added Mr. DiNardo.

"Our bookings were strong throughout the first quarter and increased 22% as compared to the prior quarter.  While this level of bookings supported a book-to-bill ratio of significantly better than 1:1, our dependence on distribution sell-through, for which we have less visibility, and weak macro economic conditions suggest caution in the September quarter," concluded Mr. DiNardo.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company expects sales growth in the range of 2% to 4% and non-GAAP gross margin to be in the range of 47% to 49%. Diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis are expected to be in the range of $0.03 to $0.05.

The following non-GAAP financial information excludes stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, restructuring and exit charges, provision for dispute resolution, and related tax effects.  See "Generally Accepted Accounting Principles" below for further description.

Safe Harbor Statement

The Company's statements about its future financial or business performance, changes in gross margins, net sales and diluted earnings per share are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.  These risks and uncertainties include global financial volatility, economic recession, and industry and market conditions, such as vendor capacity, quality or throughput constraints; possible disruption in commercial activities; successful development, market acceptance and demand for the Company's products; accounting considerations; and the level of inventories maintained at the Company's OEMs and distributors, as well as the other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's SEC reports, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 1, 2012. 

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP.  Additionally, the Company supplements reported GAAP financials with non-GAAP measures which are included in related press releases and reports furnished to the SEC, copies of which are available at the Company's website:  http://www.exar.com or the SEC's website at:  http://www.sec.gov.  For the periods presented, we are disclosing non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share, which are adjusted to exclude from our GAAP results all stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, provision for dispute resolution, restructuring charges and exit costs, and income tax effects.  These non-GAAP measures are presented in part to enhance the understanding of the Company's historical financial performance and comparability between reporting periods.  The Company believes the non-GAAP presentation, when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provide relevant and useful information to analysts, investors, management and other interested parties following the semiconductor industry.  For its internal purposes, the Company uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures to evaluate performance across reporting periods, determine certain employee benefits as well as plan for and forecast the Company's future periods.  These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.  In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.  The Company believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.  These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.
