ISSI Announces First Fiscal Quarter 2013 Results

Jan 30, 2013, 16:10 ET from Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc.

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISSI) today reported financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

First Fiscal Quarter and Recent Highlights:

  • Reported total revenue of $76.4 million, including $9.0 million in NOR flash revenue;
  • Achieved record automotive market revenue, increasing 2 percent sequentially and 45 percent over the prior year quarter;
  • Reported GAAP net income of $0.09 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income of $0.18 per diluted share;
  • Generated $8.1 million in cash flow from operations; and
  • Began production shipments of 65nm 36Mb and 72Mb Quad SRAM devices.

"During the first quarter, revenue reflected continued strength in sales for our automotive products, partially offset by end market demand weakness in our other markets," said Scott Howarth, ISSI's President and CEO. "Additionally, our NOR flash revenue exceeded our expectations for the first full quarter after closing our acquisition of Chingis in late September 2012. The addition of NOR flash further expands our addressable markets and creates significant cross-selling opportunities by providing a complementary memory product for many of our key customers."

"For the March quarter, we expect revenue to be down sequentially primarily due to typical seasonality across our end markets. Looking forward, we expect to continue increasing our share of content in the automotive market and exceed the overall growth of that market.  In addition, we are well positioned in the industrial, medical, and military and communications markets to benefit from our broadened product portfolio when conditions improve in such markets.  I believe our new product introductions and design win traction will contribute to future market share gains and expanded market opportunities in the coming year." 

First Fiscal Quarter 2013 Results:

Revenue in the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $76.4 million.  Revenue consisted of $65.8 million of SRAM and DRAM revenue, $9.0 million of NOR flash revenue, and $1.6 million of analog revenue.  SRAM and DRAM revenue decreased 4.9 percent from the September 2012 quarter and increased 3.2 percent from the December 2011 quarter.

GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 32.1 percent, compared to 25.3 percent in the September 2012 quarter, and 33.5 percent in the December 2011 quarter. Non-GAAP gross margin was 32.9 percent in the December 2012 quarter. 

GAAP net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $2.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $13.2 million, or $0.48 per basic share, in the September 2012 quarter and GAAP net income of $3.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the December 2011 quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the December 2012 quarter was $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $6.9 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the September 2012 quarter and $6.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the December 2011 quarter. 

Our Non-GAAP results exclude special items in the September 2012 quarter, stock based compensation, purchase price adjustments and amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, and non-cash tax expense.  A reconciliation of our GAAP results to our non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

March Quarter Outlook

The Company expects total revenue for the March quarter to range between $70.0 and $75.0 million, consisting of SRAM and DRAM revenue of between $62.5 million and $66.0 million, NOR flash revenue between $6.0 million and $7.0 million, and analog revenue of between $1.5 million and $2.0 million. Gross margin for the March quarter is expected to range between 32.5 percent and 33.5 percent. Operating expenses are expected to range between $21.0 million and $22.0 million. GAAP net income is expected to be between $0.06 and $0.10 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income, which excludes non-cash tax expense related to the utilization of deferred tax assets, stock-based compensation, and amortization of intangibles related to the acquisition of Chingis, is expected to range between $0.14 and $0.18 per diluted share.

To access ISSI's conference call via telephone, dial 888-427-9411 by 1:20 p.m. Pacific Time. The participant passcode is 3401690. The call will also be webcast from ISSI's website at http://www.issi.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing results determined in accordance with GAAP, ISSI discloses its non-GAAP gross margin and net income (loss) for certain periods that exclude stock based compensation, the purchase price adjustments and amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, the write-off of certain Si En tangible and intangible assets, expenses related to the acquisition of Chingis and the charge to recognize the decline in fair value of SMIC stock. When presenting non-GAAP results, the Company includes a reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the results under GAAP. Management believes that including the non-GAAP results assists investors in assessing the Company's operational performance and its performance relative to its competitors. The Company has presented these non-GAAP results as a complement to its results provided in accordance with GAAP, and these results should not be regarded as a substitute for GAAP. Management uses non-GAAP measures to plan and forecast future periods, to establish operational goals, to compare with its business plan and individual operating budgets, to assist the public in measuring the Company's performance, to allocate resources and, relative to the Company's historical financial performance, to enable comparability between periods. Management also considers such non-GAAP results to be an important supplemental measure of its performance. The economic substance behind management's decision to use such non-GAAP measures relates to the non-GAAP measures being a useful measure of the potential future performance of the Company's business. In line with common industry practice and to help enable comparability with other technology companies, the Company's non-GAAP presentation excludes the impact of stock based compensation, the amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, the write-off of certain Si En tangible and intangible assets, expenses related to the acquisition of Chingis and the charge to recognize the decline in fair value of SMIC stock. Other companies may calculate non-GAAP results differently than the Company, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. In addition, such non-GAAP measures may exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance. Management compensates for the foregoing limitations of non-GAAP measures by presenting certain information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP measures.
