Jul 31, 2013, 16:10 ET from Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc.

MILPITAS, Calif., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISSI) today reported financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Third Fiscal Quarter Highlights:

  • Reported total revenue of $77.8 million, an increase of 3.7% over the second fiscal quarter of 2013 and 20.1% over the third fiscal quarter of 2012;
  • Industrial, medical, and military (IMM) revenue increased 5.0% sequentially;
  • Communications revenue increased 3.6% sequentially;
  • Consumer revenue grew 15.6% sequentially on improved flash and analog results;
  • Automotive revenue was flat sequentially and grew 21.0% over the prior year period;
  • GAAP net income was $0.24 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income was $0.23 per diluted share;
  • Realized $7.0 million in gains on sales of a portion of the Company's shares of Nanya Technology Corporation ("Nanya");
  • Generated $16.4 million in cash flow from operations and cash and short-term investments grew to $138.6 million; and
  • Achieved multiple design wins for RLDRAM® 2 memories, DDR2, DDR3 and SRAM products.

"Third quarter revenue reflected sequential growth in sales into the IMM, communications and consumer markets, including sales of our flash and analog products," said Scott Howarth, ISSI's President and CEO. "The sequential increases in IMM and communications sales were even more noteworthy considering the 13% and 5% sequential growth, respectively, we achieved in the March quarter despite the continued economic weakness in Europe. We believe our expanded product portfolio is driving market share gains and increasing ISSI's role as a strategic source of long-term supply for customers."

"Looking forward, we remain cautious on the overall economic and end market environment but believe our position as a reliable, long-term source for customers and our growing pipeline of design wins will contribute to further market share gains and revenue growth in the coming quarters."

Third Fiscal Quarter 2013 Results Revenue in the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $77.8 million, an increase of 3.7 percent from the $75.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 and an increase of 20.1 percent from the $64.8 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2012. Revenue in the third fiscal quarter of 2013 consisted of $67.5 million of SRAM and DRAM revenue, $8.4 million of NOR flash revenue, and $1.9 million of analog revenue. SRAM and DRAM revenue increased 2.0 percent from the March 2013 quarter and 7.7 percent from the June 2012 quarter.

GAAP gross margin in the third fiscal quarter was 33.5 percent, compared to 33.3 percent in the March 2013 quarter, and 32.9 percent in the June 2012 quarter. Non-GAAP gross margin was 33.7 percent, compared to 33.5 percent in the March 2013 quarter.

During the third fiscal quarter, the Company continued to sell a portion of the Nanya shares it purchased in September 2012, realizing a gain of $7.0 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 third fiscal quarter was $5.2 million, compared to $3.2 million in the March 2013 quarter and $2.5 million in the June 2012 quarter.

GAAP net income in the third fiscal quarter of 2013 was $7.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $3.3 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the March 2013 quarter and GAAP net income of $3.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the June 2012 quarter.

Non-GAAP net income in the June 2013 quarter was $6.7 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to $6.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the March 2013 quarter and $6.5 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the June 2012 quarter.

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

September Quarter Outlook The Company expects total revenue for the September quarter to range between $77.0 and $83.0 million, consisting of SRAM and DRAM revenue of between $68.0 million and $73.0 million, NOR flash revenue between $7.0 million and $7.5 million, and analog revenue of between $2.0 million and $2.5 million. Gross margin for the September quarter is expected to range between 33.5 percent and 34.5 percent. Operating expenses are expected to range between $20.0 million and $21.0 million.  The Company expects to realize additional gains on the Nanya shares in the September 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 the acquisition of Chingis, and gains on the sales of Nanya shares, is expected to range between $0.24 and $0.28 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 third fiscal quarter financial results. To access ISSI's conference call via telephone, dial 888-438-5519 by 1:20 p.m. Pacific Time. The participant passcode is 6068298. 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 investments, 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.
