LEIDEN, Netherlands & MILPITAS, Calif.
IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS), an international power semiconductor and IC company, today announced financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2015.
Net revenues for the quarter were $82.0 million versus $88.1 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year. Net revenues were generally in line quarter-over-quarter, when comparing the June 2015 quarter revenues to the $82.9 million achieved in the March 2015 quarter.
GAAP net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $3.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to the net income of $3.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the prior year’s quarter.
The June 30, 2015 quarter non-GAAP net income, which excludes the impact of charges for the amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock compensation, was $5.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $5.8 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, was $9.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.
Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $25.6 million, or 31.2% of net revenues, an increase of 280 basis points as compared to gross profit of $25.0 million, or 28.4% of net revenues, for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Sequentially, our gross profit margin increased by 70 basis points over the gross profit margin in the March 2015 quarter.
“We continued actions to improve gross margins, by focusing on higher value-added power semiconductor products in the industrial, telecom, medical, transportation and renewable energy markets. Parallel to that, we also executed on our selective acquisition strategy to add IC products that complement our product portfolio,” noted Dr. Nathan Zommer, Founder and CEO of IXYS. “With the acquisition of RadioPulse, IXYS gained technology, products and customers in the faster-growing lighting and home security markets.”
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $118.2 million at June 30, 2015, after generating $9.4 million in cash from operations during the quarter. Approximately $15 million of cash was deployed to complete the acquisition of the aforementioned RadioPulse, a fabless semiconductor company that provides innovative wireless system-on-a-chip solutions in the ZigBee connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT) markets.
The company declared a $0.035 quarterly dividend, which was paid on July 7, 2015 to stockholders of record on June 23, 2015. This marks the 11th consecutive quarter of dividends.
“In volatile European and Asian market conditions, customers are not projecting far into the future and therefore are ordering on short lead times. IXYS is well positioned to take advantage of this sales pattern, with the fab manufacturing facilities working to meet tight delivery deadlines,” said Mr. Uzi Sasson, President and Chief Financial Officer of IXYS. “However, there is only modest growth in the semiconductor industry. We expect limited market visibility through the summer, but anticipate our September 2015 quarter revenues to be in line with the revenues of the June 2015 quarter.”
Included above and within the attached schedules are certain non-GAAP financial figures. During the quarter ended June 30, 2015, the company incurred charges, including those associated with amortization of intangible assets and stock compensation. Adjusting the net income in the June 30, 2015 quarter to exclude the impact of amortization of intangible assets and stock compensation expenses, net of applicable tax at the effective tax rate for the respective periods, results in a financial presentation for the company without the effect of these charges. Similarly, adjusted EBITDA for the June 30, 2015 quarter reflects the exclusion of depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expenses, as well as interest and taxes, and may serve as an indication of the company’s ability to service its debt. Management believes non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share and adjusted EBITDA are useful measures of operating performance. However, the non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, net income and net income per share or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share and adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
