SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today reported financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended July 31, 2010.

Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 were $193.1 million, as compared to $157.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, and $105.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010. GAAP net income attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $16.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, as compared to net income attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. of $3.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, and a net loss attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. of $9.9 million, or $0.19 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $22.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 was $10.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 was $3.9 million, or $0.08 per share. Non-GAAP net income attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. excludes stock-based compensation expenses and the related tax effects which OmniVision Technologies, Inc. does not consider to be directly related to its core operating performance. Please refer to the attached schedule for a reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. to non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. for the three months ended July 31, 2010, July 31, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was 26.9% as compared to 24.9% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 and 22.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The sequential increase in first quarter gross margin reflected a continuing improvement in product mix resulting from a substantial increase in 5-megapixel sensor revenues. The Company ended the period with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $349.0 million, an increase of $15.4 million from the previous quarter.

"We are again pleased by our reported results this quarter which reflect our constant focus on our technology, customers and performance. Our successful execution in the first fiscal quarter was made possible by a number of factors, including our technological strength and a continuing commitment to the advancement of imaging technology," stated Shaw Hong, chief executive officer of OmniVision Technologies, Inc.

"As the first company to commercialize the use of backside illumination technology, we are particularly pleased by the remarkable increase in our BSI-based 5- and 8-megapixel product revenues during the first fiscal quarter," Mr. Hong concluded.

Outlook

Based on current trends, the Company expects fiscal second quarter 2011 revenues will be in the range of $220 million to $240 million and GAAP net income per share attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. common stockholders will be between $0.36 and $0.49 per diluted share. Excluding the estimated expense and related tax effects associated with stock-based compensation, the Company expects its non-GAAP net income per share attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. common stockholders will be between $0.46 and $0.59 per diluted share. Refer to the table below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income.

Safe Harbor Statement

Certain statements in this press release, including statements relating to the Company's expectations regarding revenues and earnings per share for the three months ending October 31, 2010 are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations, and certain factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, without limitation, the impact of general economic conditions; competition in current and emerging markets for image sensor products, including pricing pressures that could result from competition; fluctuations in sales mix and average selling prices; the Company's ability to obtain design wins from various image sensor device manufacturers including manufacturers of mobile phone, laptops and PCs, digital still cameras and automobile manufacturers; the market acceptance of products into which the Company's products are designed; fluctuations of wafer manufacturing yields and other manufacturing processes; the Company's ability to accurately forecast customer demand for its products; the development, production, introduction and marketing of new products and technology; the potential loss of one or more key customers or distributors; the continued growth and development of current markets and the emergence of new markets in which the Company sells, or may sell, its products; the acceptance of the Company's products in such current and new markets; the Company's strategic investments and relationships, and other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including, but not limited to, the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update information contained in any forward-looking statement.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the reader's overall understanding both of its reported results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and its outlook, the Company also presents non-GAAP measures of net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share which are adjusted from results based on GAAP. In particular, the Company excludes stock-based compensation expense and the related tax effects. The non-GAAP financial measures which the Company discloses also exclude the effects of stock-based compensation on the number of basic and diluted common shares used in calculating non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures to enhance an investor's overall understanding of its current financial performance and to assess its prospects for the future. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business. The economic basis for the Company's decision to use non-GAAP financial measures is that the adjustments to net income (loss) did not reflect the on-going relative strength of the Company's performance. The Company's objective is to minimize any confusion in the financial markets by providing non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share measurements and disclosing the related components. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures for internal management purposes to conduct and evaluate its business, when publicly providing its business outlook and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. The Company views non-GAAP net income (loss) per share as a primary indicator of the profitability of its underlying business. In addition, because stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense and is offset in full by a credit to paid-in capital, it has no effect on total stockholders' equity. As the calculation of non-GAAP financial measures differ between companies, the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Other than stock-based compensation, these differences may cause the Company's non-GAAP measures to not be directly comparable to other companies' non-GAAP measures. Although these non-GAAP financial measures adjust cost, expenses and basic and diluted share items to exclude the accounting treatment of stock-based compensation, they should not be viewed as a non-GAAP presentation reflecting the elimination of the underlying stock-based compensation programs. Thus, the Company's non-GAAP presentations are not intended to present, and should not be used, as a basis for assessing what its operating results might be if it were to eliminate its stock-based compensation programs. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of the net income (loss) attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. and net income (loss) per share attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. common stockholders on a basis prepared in accordance with GAAP to enable investors to consider net income (loss) attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. and net income (loss) per share attributable to OmniVision Technologies, Inc. common stockholders determined under GAAP as well as on an adjusted basis, and perform their own analysis, as appropriate. As a result of the foregoing limitations, the Company does not use, nor does the Company intend to use, the non-GAAP financial measures when assessing the Company's performance against that of other companies.

Estimating stock-based compensation expense and the related tax effects for a future period is subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to the price of the Company's stock, stock market volatility, expected option life, risk-free interest rates, and the number of option exercises and sales during the quarter.
