GAAP net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $541.4 million, down 0.9% from GAAP net sales of $546.2 million in the prior year's second fiscal quarter.  GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $64.9 million, or 30 cents per diluted share, down 30.7% from GAAP net income of $93.6 million, or 42 cents per diluted share, in the prior year's second fiscal quarter.

Non-GAAP net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $559.4 million, up 2.4% from non-GAAP net sales of $546.2 million in the prior year's second fiscal quarter.  Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $142.9 million, or 66 cents per diluted share, down 4.9% from non-GAAP net income of $150.2 million, or 67 cents per diluted share, in the prior year's second fiscal quarter.  For the second quarters of fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015, our non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), GAAP non-recognition of revenue for inventory in the distribution channel at the acquisition dates for our acquisitions, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, the related income tax implications of these items and non-recurring tax events.  A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Microchip announced today that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of 35.85 cents per share.  The quarterly dividend is payable on December 4, 2015 to stockholders of record on November 20, 2015.

"Our September quarter results were better than our upwardly revised guidance from September 8, 2015.  The quarterly results in revenue, gross margin percentage, operating expense percentage and operating profit percentage were all better than the midpoint of such guidance," said Steve Sanghi, President and CEO.  "Overall we executed the quarter extremely well amidst very difficult industry conditions, and ended the quarter with an all-time record in non-GAAP net sales.  We also achieved the top end of our upwardly revised non-GAAP earnings per share guidance."

Mr. Sanghi added, "The September quarter was also our 100th consecutive profitable quarter.  I want to thank all Microchip employees for their dedication and contribution in this remarkable achievement of 100 consecutive profitable quarters, an achievement we believe is unmatched in the semiconductor industry."

"Our microcontroller revenue was down 4% in the September quarter as compared to the June quarter.  We experienced the same broad-based weakness that has been reported by many others in our industry.  In aggregate over the last four rolling quarters, our microcontroller business was up 2.7% over the prior four rolling quarters," said Ganesh Moorthy, Chief Operating Officer.  "We are continuing to deliver innovative new 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers that we believe will enable us to grow faster than the market and gain further market share."

Mr. Moorthy added, "Our analog business, excluding the Micrel results, was about flat in the September quarter as compared to the June quarter, and was up 3.6% compared to the year-ago quarter.  In this business we also experienced the broad-based weakness that has been reported by many others in our industry.  In aggregate over the last four rolling quarters, our analog business was up 8.6% over the prior four rolling quarters.  Our analog business, including the Micrel results, was up 30.1% in the September quarter compared to the June quarter, and was up 34.8% compared to the year-ago quarter.  We continue to develop and introduce a wide range of innovative and proprietary new products to fuel the future growth of our analog business, complemented by the products added to our portfolio through acquisitions."

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Our cash generation in the September quarter excluding our acquisition activities, our dividend payment, and changes in borrowing levels under our revolving line of credit, was $150 million.  As of September 30, 2015, our consolidated cash and total investment position was $2.59 billion.  The dividend we announced today marks the 47th occasion that we have increased our dividend payment, and cumulative dividends paid are now at $2.66 billion."

Mr. Sanghi concluded, "We believe that industry conditions continue to be very weak.  At the same time, our global sell-through revenue recognition policies and our large customer base allowed us to see the beginning of this inventory correction earlier than most companies, and we believe that we are nearing the end of it.  Therefore, we are guiding the December quarter excluding Micrel results to be within our seasonally normal range.  We expect our net sales in the December quarter excluding Micrel to be down between 2% and 6% sequentially, and 4% at the midpoint.  We expect Micrel's full quarter non-GAAP net sales to be between $51 million and $54 million, and expect overall total non-GAAP net sales for Microchip for the December quarter to be between $539.7 million and $563.5 million.  Additionally, we expect our March quarter net sales to be sequentially up in low single digit percentages as we complete the current correction."

Microchip's Highlights for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2015:

  • Microchip collaborated with Intel to implement the Intel® Enhanced Privacy ID (Intel® EPID) technology into Microchip's products.  Intel EPID is a sophisticated, proven approach to device authentication that provides both security and privacy for the Internet of Things (IoT).
  • Continuing its rapid pace of innovation with the broad portfolio of PIC® microcontrollers that run the IoT, along with myriad other embedded applications, Microchip introduced new products across its 8, 16 and 32-bit MCU lines.  The Company's new 8-bit development platform accelerates the design of application functions with its integrated core-independent and intelligent-analog peripherals.  For added security, Microchip's latest eXtreme Low Power 16-bit MCU family doubled the Flash memory and added new hardware security features compared to Microchip's prior product family.
  • Two new 32-bit MCU series added to the steady growth of Microchip's PIC32 portfolio.  The high-end PIC32MZ family added a series that features an integrated hardware floating point unit (FPU) for high performance and lower latency in intensive single and double-precision math applications.  The latest PIC32MX1/2 series features a cost-optimized 256 KB of Flash memory and performance up to 83 DMIPS for touch-sensing and embedded-control applications in the consumer, industrial and medical markets.
  • Enabling cost-sensitive applications to adopt the new USB Type-C™ connector, Microchip announced its UTC2000 controller.  It allows designers to simply and quickly implement this popular reversible-plug connector for USB devices and cables, in a wide range of applications.
  • Microchip's MOST® technology devices continued to win new designs in automotive infotainment networks, with fresh deployments in Audi's Q7 SUV, Toyota's Alphard and Vellfire executive-lounge vehicles, and PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN's Aircross SUV concept car.  More than 170 million MOST devices have been installed in 191 car models, since 2001.
  • On the technology side, Microchip introduced the industry's first MOST150 coaxial transceiver, which enables powerful, robust and cost-efficient automotive infotainment networks based on coaxial cables.  Additionally, Microchip added support for automotive CI+ based pay TV to its broad MOST technology device portfolio.
  • Microchip grew its already broad analog offerings with the world's first fully integrated thermocouple-conditioning integrated circuit, simplifying designs by combining a number of discrete devices into one chip, which also lowers board area, cost and power consumption.  Thermocouples are one of the most ubiquitous temperature-measurement devices, due to their robustness and accuracy in harsh, high-temperature environments, and their ability to measure temperature over an extremely wide range.
  • Mobile computing designers can easily reuse IP across multiple x86 platforms, with Microchip's new family of highly configurable low-power embedded controllers.  This family supports the Intel Corporation's new Enhanced Serial Peripheral Interface (eSPI), as well as the existing Low Pin Count Interface (LPC), to communicate with the system host.
  • Microchip expanded its Industrial Ethernet switch portfolio with enhanced devices featuring the IEEE 1588-2008 Precision Time Protocol and low-power options.  These highly integrated, three-port 10/100 Ethernet switches provide multiple microcontroller data interfaces for maximum flexibility in applications such as automation, motion-control, embedded, automotive, security/surveillance and telecommunications.
  • Microchip was selected for the 2015 "Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For" list, for the third straight year.  The corporate research team at Selling Power magazine identified and ranked the best companies to sell for, among the top sales forces in the United States. Microchip ranked 11th, moving up six places from 2014, and is still the only semiconductor company on the list.

Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook:

The following statements are based on current expectations.  These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.  Due to our acquisition of Micrel which closed on August 3, 2015 and our intention to change the contractual relationships with certain Micrel distributors that will impact GAAP revenue recognition, we are not able to provide GAAP guidance at this time. We are able to provide the following non-GAAP guidance:

Earnings per share have been calculated based on the diluted shares outstanding of Microchip on a consolidated basis.

  • Excluding the GAAP purchase accounting impacts from the Micrel acquisition, Microchip's inventory days at December 31, 2015 are expected to be flat to up 6 days to be between 125 days and 131 days.  Our actual inventory level will depend on the inventory that our distributors decide to hold to support their customers, overall demand for our products and our production levels.  We are reducing wafer starts in our Fabs and loadings in our assembly and test factories to manage inventory in the current business environment.
  • Capital expenditures for the quarter ending December 31, 2015 are expected to be approximately $30 million.  Capital expenditures for all of fiscal year 2016 are expected to be approximately $125 million.  We are continuing to invest in the equipment needed to support the growth of our production capabilities for fast growing new products and technologies.
  • We expect net cash generation during the December quarter of $110 million to $120 million prior to the dividend payment, changes in borrowing levels, and our acquisition-related activities.

1  Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:  Our non-GAAP adjustments, where applicable, include the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance costs, and legal and other general and administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), GAAP non-recognition of revenue for inventory in the distribution channel at the acquisition dates for our acquisitions, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures, the related income tax

implications of these items and non-recurring tax events.  Our non-GAAP net sales outlook for the December 2015 quarter reflects revenue from the sell-through of products from Micrel's distributors that the distributors own as of the acquisition date that is not recognized for GAAP purposes.  We believe that our disclosure of non-GAAP net sales provides investors with useful information regarding the actual end market demand for our products.

We are required to estimate the cost of certain forms of share-based compensation, including employee stock options, restricted stock units and our employee stock purchase plan, and to record a commensurate expense in our income statement.  Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is affected by the price of our stock at the date of grant.  The price of our stock is affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management.  Our other non-GAAP adjustments are either non-cash expenses or non-recurring expenses related to such transactions.  Accordingly, management excludes all of these items from its internal operating forecasts and models.

We are using non-GAAP net sales, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit percentage, non-GAAP operating expenses in dollars and as a percentage of sales including non-GAAP research and development expenses and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP other expense, net, non-GAAP income tax provision (benefit)/tax rate, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share which exclude the items noted above, as applicable, to permit additional analysis of our performance.

Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they enhance the understanding of our historical financial performance and comparability between periods.  Many of our investors have requested that we disclose this non-GAAP information because they believe it is useful in understanding our performance as it excludes non-cash and other charges that many investors feel may obscure our underlying operating results.  Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of our business.  Specifically, we do not consider such items when developing and monitoring our budgets and spending.  Our determination of the above non-GAAP measures might not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it should not be construed as a substitute for amounts determined in accordance with GAAP.  There are limitations associated with using non-GAAP measures, including that they exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance.  Management compensates for this by presenting information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for investors and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP results.

2  Generally, gross margin fluctuates over time, driven primarily by the mix of microcontrollers, mixed-signal products, analog products and memory products sold and licensing revenue; variances in manufacturing yields; fixed cost absorption; wafer fab loading levels; costs of wafers from foundries; inventory reserves; pricing pressures in our non-proprietary product lines; and competitive and economic conditions.  Operating expenses fluctuate over time, primarily due to net sales and profit levels.

3  Diluted Common Shares Outstanding can vary for, among other things, the trading price of our common stock, the actual exercise of options or vesting of restricted stock units, the potential for incremental dilutive shares from our convertible debentures (additional information regarding our share count is available in the investor relations section of our website under the heading "Supplemental Financial Information"), and the repurchase or the issuance of stock.  The diluted common shares outstanding presented in the guidance table above assumes an average Microchip stock price in the December 2015 quarter of $48 per share (however, we make no prediction as to what our actual share price will be for such period or any other period and we cannot estimate what our stock option exercise activity will be during the quarter).
