Intersil Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2006 Financial Results

Net Revenue of $187.6 Million; Increases 35% Year-Over Year and 5% Sequentially; GAAP Net Income Increases 149% Year-Over-Year and 33% Sequentially

MILPITAS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2006 -- Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high performance analog semiconductors, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2006. Net revenues for the second quarter were $187.6 million, a 35% increase from $139.1 million in the second quarter of 2005 and a 5% increase from $178.9 million in the first quarter of 2006.

Second Quarter 2006 Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results

For the second quarter of 2006, gross margins were 57.2%. This compares to gross margins of 55.3% in the same quarter last year, and 57.0% in the first quarter of 2006. Operating margins were 19.0%, as compared to operating margins of 12.9% in the same quarter last year, and 20.3% in the first quarter of 2006. Including a one time $12.4 million positive adjustment to income taxes, net income was $43.0 million, or $0.30 earnings per diluted share, as compared to net income of $17.3 million, or $0.12 earnings per diluted share in the same quarter last year. For the first quarter of 2006, the Company reported net income of $32.4 million, or $0.22 earnings per diluted share.

Second Quarter 2006 Non-GAAP Results

For the second quarter of 2006, non-GAAP gross margins were 57.8%. This compares to gross margins of 55.4% for the same quarter last year, and 57.3% for the first quarter of 2006. Operating margins were 27.7%, as compared to operating margins of 17.5% for the same quarter last year, and 27.4% for the first quarter of 2006. Net income was $43.7 million, or $0.30 earnings per diluted share. This compares to net income of $21.4 million, or $0.15 earnings per diluted share for the same quarter last year, and $41.3 million, or $0.28 earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2006.

"For the seventh consecutive quarter we achieved improvement in revenue, gross margins and earnings on a non-GAAP basis," stated Rich Beyer, Intersil's Chief Executive Officer. "These results demonstrate our continued success in expanding our product portfolio and steadily progressing towards our long-term financial model."

By end market, Intersil's second quarter revenues were as follows: high-end consumer (28% of revenues), computing (23% of revenues), industrial (25% of revenues), and communication (24% of revenues). "Revenue in the high-end consumer, industrial and communication markets all experienced excellent sequential growth," said Lou DiNardo, Intersil's President and Chief Operating Officer. "Revenue growth in the high-end consumer market was driven by our product proliferation in handhelds and displays, and a seasonal increase in demand for optical storage products. Revenue growth in the communication and industrial markets was driven by continued healthy seasonal demand and the successful ramp of many 2005 and 2006 design wins. We experienced a sequential decline in computing due to softness in the PC market."

The Company generated over $49 million in cash from operations, or 26% of revenues, for the quarter. In May, the Company announced a $150 million increase to its existing share repurchase program. Approximately 2.1 million shares of stock were repurchased in the quarter for about $60 million. In addition, as a result of Intersil's continued positive cash flow and strong balance sheet position, the Company's board of directors authorized and declared the payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share of common stock. Payment of the dividend will be made on August 18, 2006 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 8, 2006.

Business Outlook

"We currently anticipate revenue to grow between 3% to 5% from our second quarter revenue of $187.6 million," said Rich Beyer. "We expect solid growth in our industrial and communication end markets. There is currently softness in computing and several consumer related products, which is limiting our visibility into the third quarter. As a result we remain cautious. We expect GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.25 and we expect non-GAAP earnings per share of approximately $0.32, up from $0.30 per share in the second quarter."

NON-GAAP REPORTING

In addition to GAAP reporting, Intersil reports net income or loss, as well as earnings per share, gross margin and operating margin on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP earnings information excludes stock based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles and unusual items and their related tax effects. Intersil believes this non-GAAP earnings information provides meaningful insight into the Company's on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to emphasize the results of on-going operations. Intersil also uses this information internally to evaluate and manage the Company's operations and to determine incentive compensation. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP net income is included in the tables below.
