MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISSI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2013.

Fourth Fiscal Quarter and Recent Highlights:

  • Reported total revenue of $78.4 million, compared to $77.8 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2013 and $72.5 million in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2012;
  • Automotive revenue increased 9.3% sequentially;
  • GAAP net income was $0.15 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income was $0.20 per diluted share;
  • Generated $11.6 million in cash flow from operations and cash and short-term investments grew to $141.6 million; and
  • Announced higher density Flash product line covering SPI and Parallel flash targeted at automotive, industrial, consumer, computing, and communication markets.

Fiscal Year 2013 Highlights:

  • Fiscal 2013 revenue grew to $307.6 million, an increase of 15.6% compared to fiscal 2012;
  • Automotive revenue increased 28.2% compared to fiscal 2012;
  • GAAP net income was $17.5 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income was $24.2 million, or $0.81 per diluted share;
  • Realized aggregate gains of $12.0 million on sales of a portion of the Company's shares of Nanya Technology Corporation ("Nanya"); and
  • Generated $33.5 million in cash flow from operations during the fiscal year.

"Fiscal 2013 reflected a strong year of growth for ISSI, driven primarily by our automotive business, which represented almost half of our total revenue," said Scott Howarth, ISSI's President and CEO. "Our automotive success reflects both increased market share and significant growth in electronic content per vehicle. ISSI's design win momentum in applications such as infotainment, satellite radio, Bluetooth, safety camera systems, displays and telematics have been the key to our success in this market. We believe we are also well positioned with more advanced DDR3 products to support even higher performance solutions in vehicles in the coming years.

"For the year, our consumer end market revenue increased due to the addition of flash products, and industrial, medical and military ("IMM") revenue increased slightly in spite of continued weakness in Europe. We significantly expanded our product portfolio, design activity and customer base in IMM in fiscal 2013 and believe we are well positioned for future volume increases. Communications sales declined year-over-year as a result of the weak macro environment and continued delays in infrastructure investments by carriers. However, we significantly increased our addressable market with new QUAD SRAM and RLDRAM® solutions, which we expect to be key contributors to our anticipated growth in fiscal 2014. Also notable during the year, we won a competitive design bid for next generation memory with Cisco Systems, Inc. significantly expanding our relationship with this important customer, and expect this design to begin ramping in 2015. As evidenced by our results this year, our focus on expanding our product portfolio, broadening customer relationships and being recognized as a key strategic supplier of specialty memory solutions continued to serve us well."

Fourth Fiscal Quarter 2013 Results
Revenue in the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $78.4 million, compared to $77.8 million in the third quarter of 2013 and an increase of 8.1% from the $72.5 million in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2012. Revenue in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2013 consisted of $69.9 million of SRAM and DRAM revenue, $6.4 million of NOR flash revenue, and $2.1 million of analog revenue. SRAM and DRAM revenue increased 3.6% from the June 2013 quarter and 1.2% from the September 2012 quarter.

GAAP gross margin in the fourth fiscal quarter was 33.1%, compared to 33.5% in the June 2013 quarter, and 25.3% in the September 2012 quarter. Non-GAAP gross margin was 33.3%, compared to 33.7% in the June 2013 quarter.

During the fourth fiscal quarter, the Company continued to sell a portion of the Nanya shares it purchased in September 2012, realizing a gain of $2.9 million. The remaining tradable Nanya shares are classified as short-term investments since the Company intends to sell such shares within one year.

GAAP income tax expense in the fourth fiscal quarter was $2.7 million, compared to $5.2 million in the June 2013 quarter and $1.1 million in the September 2012 quarter.

GAAP net income in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2013 was $4.7 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $7.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the June 2013 quarter and GAAP net loss of $13.2 million, or $0.48 per share, in the September 2012 quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the September 2013 quarter was $6.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $6.7 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the June 2013 quarter and $6.9 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the September 2012 quarter.

Our non-GAAP results exclude stock based compensation, amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, other acquisition related charges, asset impairment charges, gains on the sales of investments, impairment of investment, and non-cash tax expense. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is provided in the financial statement tables following the text of this press release.

Fiscal 2013 Results:
Revenue for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 was $307.6 million, an increase of 15.6% from revenue of $266.0 million in fiscal 2012. DRAM and SRAM revenue in fiscal 2013 was $269.3 million, an increase of 5.3% from fiscal 2012. GAAP gross margin in fiscal 2013 was 33.0%, compared with 31.2% in fiscal 2012.

GAAP net income in fiscal 2013 was $17.5 million, or $0.59 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss in fiscal 2012 of $2.7 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income in fiscal 2013 was $24.2 million, or $0.81 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $25.8 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, in fiscal 2012.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $141.6 million at September 30, 2013, compared with $82.0 million at September 30, 2012. 

December Quarter Outlook
The Company expects total revenue for the September quarter to range between $76.0 and $82.0 million, consisting of SRAM and DRAM revenue of between $68.0 million and $72.5 million, NOR flash revenue of between $6.0 million and $7.0 million, and analog revenue of between $2.0 million and $2.5 million. Gross margin for the December quarter is expected to range between 33% and 34%. Operating expenses are expected to range between $21.5 million and $22.5 million.  The Company expects to realize additional gains on the Nanya shares in the December quarter.  However, it is difficult to predict the total gains for the quarter and, as such, these gains have been excluded from the GAAP and Non-GAAP net income guidance. GAAP net income is expected to be between $0.10 and $0.14 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, amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, and gains on the sales of Nanya shares, is expected to range between $0.17 and $0.21 per diluted share.

Conference Call Information
A conference call will be held today at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time to discuss the Company's fourth quarter and fiscal 2013 financial results. To access ISSI's conference call via telephone, dial 800-723-6575 by 6:50 a.m. Pacific Time. The participant passcode is 7888277. 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, operating income, provision for income taxes and net income for certain periods that exclude stock based compensation, the amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, other acquisition related charges, asset impairment charges, gains on the sales of investments, impairment of investment, and non-cash tax expense. 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 the items described above. 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.
