ISSI Announces Second Fiscal Quarter 2013 Results

01 May, 2013, 16:10 ET from Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc.

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISSI) today reported financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Second Fiscal Quarter Highlights:

  • Reported total revenue of $75.0 million, which was at the high-end of the Company's guidance and up 20.0 percent over the second fiscal quarter of 2012;
  • Industrial, medical, and military (IMM) revenue increased 12.7 percent sequentially and 4.0 percent over the second fiscal quarter of 2012;
  • Automotive revenue was flat sequentially and grew 44.2 percent over the prior year period;
  • GAAP net income was $0.11 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income was $0.21 per diluted share;
  • Realized $2.1 million in gains on sales of a portion of the Company's shares of Nanya Technology Corporation ("Nanya");
  • Cash and short-term investments grew to $111.4 million or $3.97 per share; and
  • Achieved multiple design wins for new products across all target end markets.

"Second quarter revenue was at the high-end of our guidance primarily due to improvements in the IMM and communications markets," said Scott Howarth, ISSI's President and CEO. "During the quarter, we gained traction with large industrial customers, predominately in Europe, where we continue to win new designs. Additionally, our communications revenue improved slightly in the quarter, reflecting improvements in U.S. and China specifically related to LTE basestation implementation. We continued to gain momentum with our RLDRAM® memory products and have also secured large design win opportunities with a major U.S. communications and networking company. Although automotive revenue was flat sequentially, our year-over-year growth in this market demonstrates the ongoing trend toward increased semiconductor content not only in high-end cars, but also lower cost vehicles. Based on our increasing design activity and share gains, we expect this market will remain a strong growth driver for our business."

"For the June quarter, we expect revenue to increase based on continued improvements in end market demand and further ramping of multiple new products, including DDR wins in automotive, RLDRAM® memories in communications, and high density memory designs across all of our end markets. In addition, we anticipate an increase in NOR flash revenue now that we have resolved the wafer supply issues that impacted our revenue earlier this year. We expect that our growing pipeline of design wins and expanded product portfolio coupled with economic improvements in certain areas of our business will contribute to further market share gains and revenue growth in the coming quarters." 

Second Fiscal Quarter 2013 Results Revenue in the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $75.0 million, a decrease of 1.8 percent from the $76.4 million in the first fiscal quarter of 2013 and an increase of 20.0 percent from the $62.5 million in the second fiscal quarter of 2012.  Revenue in the second fiscal quarter of 2013 consisted of $66.1 million of SRAM and DRAM revenue, $7.2 million of NOR flash revenue, and $1.7 million of analog revenue. SRAM and DRAM revenue increased 1.0 percent from the December 2012 quarter and increased 10.0 percent from the March 2012 quarter.

GAAP gross margin in the second fiscal quarter was 33.3 percent, compared to 32.1 percent in the December 2012 quarter, and 33.8 percent in the March 2012 quarter. Non-GAAP gross margin was 33.5 percent, compared to 32.9 percent in the December 2012 quarter. 

During the second fiscal quarter, the Company sold a portion of the Nanya shares it purchased in September 2012, realizing a gain of $2.1 million. In addition, the remaining currently tradable Nanya shares were reclassified from non-current assets to short-term investments since the Company intends to sell such shares within one year.

GAAP income tax expense in the second fiscal quarter was $3.2 million, compared to $1.4 million in the December 2012 quarter and $1.2 million in the March 2012 quarter. In the second fiscal quarter, the Company recorded a valuation reserve of $1.4 million for deferred tax assets relating to California net operating loss carry-forwards. Due to a change in the Company's legal structure and changes in California tax law, the Company believes the deferred tax assets will no longer be fully utilized.

GAAP net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $3.3 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $2.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the December 2012 quarter and GAAP net income of $3.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the March 2012 quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the March 2013 quarter was $6.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the December 2012 quarter and $6.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the March 2012 quarter. 

Non-GAAP results exclude stock based compensation, amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, gains on the sales of Nanya shares, 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.

June Quarter Outlook The Company expects total revenue for the June quarter to range between $76.0 and $81.0 million, consisting of SRAM and DRAM revenue of between $66.5 million and $70.0 million, NOR flash revenue between $8.0 million and $9.0 million, and analog revenue of between $1.5 million and $2.0 million. Gross margin for the June quarter is expected to range between 33.0 percent and 34.0 percent. Operating expenses are expected to range between $21.0 million and $22.0 million.  In April, the Company realized gains of $2.8 million on sales of Nanya shares and expects to realize additional gains in the quarter.  However, it is impossible to predict the total gains for the June quarter and, as such, these gains have been excluded from the net income guidance.   As such, GAAP net income is expected to be between $0.12 and $0.16 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 the acquisition of Chingis, and gains on the sales of Nanya shares, is expected to range between $0.20 and $0.24 per diluted share.

Conference Call Information A conference call will be held today at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss the Company's second fiscal quarter financial results. To access ISSI's conference call via telephone, dial 888-389-5988 by 1:20 p.m. Pacific Time. The participant passcode is 5098998. 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, gains on sales of Nanya shares, 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.
