Inphi Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

Reports 22% Year-over-Year Revenue Growth in Q2 (From Continuing Operations); Guides to 43% Year over Year Revenue Growth in Q3 (From Continuing Operations)

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2016) -  Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leader in high-speed data movement interconnects, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016. The second quarter financial results include the impact of classifying the memory buffer and memory register business as assets recently sold to Rambus. The financial impact of this business has been reclassified out of results from continuing operations.

GAAP Results

Revenue from continuing operations (without the memory business) in the second quarter of 2016 was $60.5 million on a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, up 12% sequentially from $54.1 million in the first quarter of 2016 and up 22% year-over-year, compared with $49.5 million (without the memory business) in the second quarter of 2015. 

Combining revenue from continuing operations of $60.5 million with revenue that would have been reported from discontinued operations of $9.8 million, would have resulted in combined reported revenue of $70.3 million for the company for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016. However, as noted above, Inphi announced a plan to sell the memory business assets in June and closed the sale on Aug. 4, 2016. As a consequence, the related results for the memory business have been collapsed and are now shown as a single line item toward the bottom of the Consolidated Statement of Operations - "Net Income (Loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax". A reconciliation of the restated pro forma historical amounts can be found on the Investor Relations section of the company's website.

Gross margin from continuing operations under GAAP in the second quarter of 2016 was 68.2%, compared with 64.6% in the second quarter of 2015. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to increased sales of higher margin products in the communication business.

GAAP income from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2016 was $4.0 million or 6.6% of revenue from continuing operations, compared to a GAAP loss from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2015 of $1.3 million or (2.7%) of revenue from continuing operations.

GAAP net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2016 was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted common share, compared with GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $0.5 million, or ($0.01) per diluted common share, in the second quarter of 2015.

Inphi reports revenue, gross margin, operating expenses, net income (loss), and earnings per share from continuing operations in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP revenue, gross margin, operating expenses, net income, earnings per share from continuing operations, as well as a description of the items excluded from the non-GAAP calculations, is included in the financial statements portion of this news release.

Non-GAAP Results

Gross margin from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis in the second quarter of 2016 increased to 73.6%, compared with 73.1% in the second quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP income from operations in the second quarter of 2016 was $14.8 million, or 24.4% of revenue from continuing operations, compared with $12.4 million, or 25.1% of revenue from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2016 was $13.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted common share. This compares with non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $10.6 million, or $0.26 per diluted common share in the second quarter of 2015.

"We are very pleased to have again beaten expectations on both the top and bottom lines, and to have significantly raised guidance for the third quarter," said Ford Tamer, president and CEO. "We believe that positive secular trends driving high bandwidth growth in Cloud, Enterprise and Service Provider markets will continue in 2016 and well into 2017."

First Half 2016 Results
Revenue from continuing operations in the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $114.6 million, compared with $92.5 million in the six months ended June 30, 2015. GAAP net income from continuing operations in the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, on approximately 43.7 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. This compares with GAAP net loss of $11.9 million, or ($0.31) per diluted share, on approximately 38.1 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding in the six months ended June 30, 2015.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations in the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $25.1 million, or $0.57 per diluted weighted average common share outstanding, on approximately 43.7 million diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $17.4 million from continuing operations in the six months ended June 30, 2015, or $0.43 per diluted weighted average common share outstanding.

Business Outlook
The following statements are based on the Company's current expectations for the third quarter of 2016. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. A reconciliation between the GAAP and Non GAAP outlook is included in the back of the press release. In addition, this outlook does not include any estimate of the gain on sale expected from the executed sale of the memory business in Q3.

  • Revenue from continuing operations is expected to be up 10.4% to 13.7% sequentially in Q3 2016, a range of $66.8 million to $68.8 million. 
  • GAAP based gross margin is expected to be 66.9% - 68.1%.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 71.8% to 72.8%.
  • Stock-based compensation expense is expected to be in the range of $6.8 million to $6.9 million.
  • GAAP results are expected to be in a range between a net income of $3.8 million to net income of $4.9 million, or $0.09 - $0.11 per diluted share, on 44.3 million estimated diluted shares outstanding.
  • Non-GAAP net income, excluding stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles related to the Cortina acquisition, noncash interest on convertible debt and divestiture of the memory products, is expected to be in the range of $16.2 million to $17.4 million, or $0.37- $0.39 per diluted share, on 44.3 million estimated diluted shares outstanding.

INPHI CORPORATION
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(in thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)
 

To supplement the financial data presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude stock-based compensation, legal, transition costs and other expenses, purchase price fair value adjustments related to Cortina acquisition, non-cash interest expense related to convertible debt, indirect expenses associated with discontinued operations and deferred tax asset valuation allowance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with GAAP. These results should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The Company believes that its non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations because it excludes charges or benefits that management considers to be outside of the Company's core operating results. The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures of gross margin, income from operations, net income and earnings per share, in combination with the Company's financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, provide investors with additional perspective and a more meaningful understanding of the Company's ongoing operating performance. In addition, the Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to review and assess the financial performance of the Company, to determine executive officer incentive compensation and to plan and forecast performance in future periods. The Company's non-GAAP measurements are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and are not an alternative to GAAP financial information, and may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial information disclosed by other companies.
