Jan 24, 2013, 16:15 ET from Synaptics

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended December 31, 2012. 

Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $143.0 million compared with $145.5 million for the comparable quarter last year.  Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $11.1 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared with net income of $17.4 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the comparable quarter last year. 

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $17.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $23.0 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  (See attached table for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results.) 

"Second quarter revenue exceeded the high end of our guidance range, reflecting better than anticipated revenue from mobile phone touchscreen applications, partially offset by lower than expected PC revenue," stated Rick Bergman, President and CEO.  "Based on our strong product line-up, Synaptics is executing very well across our key markets, and we believe our ongoing technology roadmap positions us for continued success across future product generations.  We look forward to a return to year-over-year revenue growth in the third fiscal quarter."

Second Quarter 2013 Business Metrics

  • Revenue mix from mobile and PC products was approximately 57% and 43%, respectively.
  • Revenue from mobile products totaled $81.6 million and was up 4% year-over-year.  Mobile products revenue includes all touchscreen and video display products.
  • Revenue from PC products totaled $61.4 million, a decrease of 8% year-over-year.
  • Gross margin was 48.3%, an increase of 110 basis points year-over-year.
  • Net income reflects additional operating expenses associated with the company's recent acquisitions, as previously indicated.

Cash at December 31, 2012 was $292.5 million.  Cash flow from operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $15.3 million.  The company used $28.7 million to repurchase 1,155,299 shares of common stock and $5.0 million for a ThinTouch™ initial earn-out payment. 

Kathy Bayless, CFO, added, "Considering our backlog of approximately $79.0 million, customer forecasts, and the resulting expected product mix, we anticipate revenue to be in the range of $140.0 million to $148.0 million for the March quarter, an increase of 6% to 12% on a year-over-year basis.  We expect revenue from mobile products to be the primary growth driver."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information In evaluating its business, Synaptics considers and uses net income excluding share-based compensation and certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplemental measure of operating performance.  Net income excluding share-based compensation 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 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 and certain non-cash or non-recurring items. Net income excluding share-based compensation 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.
