Synaptics Reports Results for Second Quarter Fiscal 2016

- Record December quarter revenue of $471 million

- Record December quarter non-GAAP EPS of $1.60; GAAP EPS of $0.93

Jan 28, 2016, 16:15 ET from Synaptics Incorporated

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 increased 2 percent compared to the comparable quarter last year to $470.5 million. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $35.0 million, or $0.93 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 grew 9 percent over the prior year period to $60.3 million, or $1.60 per diluted share.  (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.)

"We are pleased to report record second quarter revenue and non-GAAP net income that were within our guidance range despite negative impacts due to macroeconomic uncertainty and resulting weakness at top smartphone OEMs," stated Rick Bergman, President and CEO. "We expect these factors to also slow our fiscal year growth from the levels we previously forecasted.  However, we believe that our diversified product portfolio and the breadth of our global customer base should help cushion the effects of industry gyrations and enable us to continue to deliver solid revenue growth and profitability for the fiscal year."

Second Quarter 2016 Business Metrics

  • Revenue mix from mobile and PC products was approximately 87 percent and 13 percent, respectively. Fingerprint authentication products have been classified according to type of device.
  • Revenue from mobile products of $407.8 million was up 2 percent year-over-year. Mobile products revenue includes all touchscreen, display driver, and applicable fingerprint authentication products.
  • Revenue from PC products totaled $62.7 million, a decrease of 4 percent year-over-year, and includes applicable fingerprint authentication products.

Wajid Ali, CFO, added, "Considering our backlog of $139 million entering the March quarter, subsequent bookings, customer forecasts, product sell-in and sell-through timing patterns, as well as expected product mix, we anticipate revenue in the March quarter to be in the range of $430 to $470 million, with the revenue mix from mobile and PC products to be approximately 90 percent and 10 percent, respectively.  By prudently managing our operating expenses we expect to drive incremental earnings results in the March quarter relative to expected top-line performance. Despite the turbulence in the macroeconomic environment and specifically the mobile phone market, we believe we can preserve a more modest but healthy growth rate. Based on our current outlook for the remainder of fiscal 2016, we anticipate annual revenue growth in the range of 9 percent to 11 percent."

Cash at December 31, 2015 was $372 million. In the second quarter of fiscal 2016, cash flow from operations was $94.5 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items is not a measurement of the company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income. The company presents net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items because it considers it an important supplemental measure of its performance. The company believes this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences in net income caused by the existence and timing of share-based compensation charges, change in contingent consideration, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation, change in contingent consideration liability, and certain non-cash or non-recurring items has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company's GAAP net income. The principal limitations of this measure are that it does not reflect the company's actual expenses and may thus have the effect of inflating its net income and net income per share.
